365 Project #60 New Job!

For a few years now I have been captioning videos for the deaf/hard-of-hearing and English students on a volunteer basis.  It's been very rewarding and I like the work.  At Amara, the non-profit organization which hosts the software, communities and volunteers, I noticed that they had some paid positions, so I applied.
After making sure I was on-board with their mission statement, I was accepted.  Now I get a paid a little for contributing to low-or-no-cost video captioning.  It's a good thing.

And I can do some work while I have a cold/flu.  Yes, that's my real nose.   And yes, it does look remarkably like a tomato.
