Transcribing Woes

So apparently, I'm terrible at transcription.

I did this once before for Pamy's thesis. I had to do it for Comm Res 101. And now I'm at it again for Ynna's thesis. Apparently, it's not fun. I keep checking the tape every now and then to see how much of the tape I've finished. And everytime I check, it's not a lot. But when I see the number of pages I've typed out, it's plenty.

No. no. no.

Oh well, I guess this is preparation for the eventual transcribing I will have to do next year for my thesis. Because even if I try to avoid it, I doubt there will be a way wherein I can avoid interviews and FGDs which means hello transcribing again. Back to Word for me.
