Well. I have gotten through the bulk of my interviews. I'm now left with about 20 tracks that range from five to fifteen minutes. I just sent out a desperate email to some family and friends begging them to help me transcribe all of this stuff:
Hi family (and dear friends)...
As you know (I think), I was totally screwed by the lady that was going to transcribe my master's project audio. I am achingly behind. I have been able to go through all my recordings and grab the sections that are most pertinent to my piece... basically making 20 tracks or so that range from 5-15 minutes.
Anyway, I am reaching out because I am desperate! Would any of you be willing to help me transcribe a couple of these? I just got the approval to take Spring Break off from work (Monday, March 8 to Friday, March 12). Essentially, I have to get the piece mostly done by the end of that week. If I had all these bits transcribed by then, I think I could make it happen.
NO PRESSURE at all (honestly), but if you have any spare time... you'd be my own personal hero.
Some fabulous people exist in my world; I am trying to get over my ridiculous need to do everything myself. I am hoping I have done enough good in life to earn some good karma.
This piece is due to Emerson on April 28 in order for me to graduate on May 17. I've got this. Right?
