A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w41

I did not write about my previous week. It wasn’t much different. Nor is this week. I didn’t sleep much (what else is new?), had a lot of work to do in office and the interviews are still going on. The only thing that relieves my stress is YouTube. I have watched Pakistani dramas and…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w39

I did not post this yesterday, because my work week is still continuing. That’s right. I am at office today, taking interviews. I don’t understand why the interviews are scheduled for the weekend. It takes away from my precious me time. I get to catch on my sleep over the weekend and that is also…

I have my custom domain now, hurrah!

Good morning! I have an important announcement to make, peeps. I just opted for the business plan on wordpress. People don’t take me seriously as a writer when they see my website link as https://theothermeunfolded.wordpress.com. I had the biggest decision to make yesterday – decide the domain name. For branding, if I may call it…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w38

This week was so hectic. There is work coming my from all directions – some of it should be assigned to others, but how often do I escalate this matter? To make things worse, I fell sick. As in, I didn’t sleep much for three days and my left eye is always twitching and burning….

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w37

Has anyone participated in P2P2019? I am hoping to, but I don’t have much time, despite sleeping lesser than usual. Weather is flutuating like anything and it adds to the irritation. Work was hectic, but TGIF. How was your week? Edited: WordPress just informed me that this is my 500th post. :O Shabana Mukhtar  

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w36

This week was short, as Thursday was a holiday for us. It doesn’t mean that I got to rest all day. Staying home on a week day reminds me of all the pendings chores that need to be taken care of, and… well, let’s just say it was exhausting. I got to sleep two more…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w35

It’s Friday, Yippie! What a crazy week it has been. Work, work and more work. I didn’t publish anything in August. September looks to be the same. I have not read anything, ANYTHING, except Haalim’s last episode, review to come soon. How was your week? Shabana Mukhtar  

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w34

This week was 0% productive in terms of writing because I dedicated 100% to office work; and some stuff at home that I have been procrastinating for months. My YouTube videos binge watching spree continues. And, I have stumbled upon a fabulous song – ‘Ae Watan’ from Raazi, for the first time. It has been…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w33

This week was a 50% anxiety and 50% boredome. I am back to Pune, and back to office. Since Monday morning, the butterflies in my stomach started going crazy until I reached my Pune abode on Wednesday morning. The thought of travelling makes me anxious, even though it is from one home to another. Does…

Telefilm Review: Help Me, Durdana

  Telefilm Details Title: Help Me, Durdana Channel: ARY Digital Written By: Saba Naseem Directed by: Aabis Raza Cast: Ushna Shah, Yasir Hussain, Mehmood Aslam Review It is the most cliched and painstakingly slapstick comedy movie. I liked Yasir Hussain and how his acting put an interesting twist to seemingly average story. This one, did NOT….

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w31

I am going home tomorrow, insha’allah. I was in bad mood mostly, as I shared yesterday about the stupid pressure of working from home on a weekend. I didn’t read anything. If i did, I don’t recall much. The temperature is dropping as monsoon continues. Instead of finishing the cardigan, I have shelved it completely….

Do you like giving your personal time for office work?

I am not being very picky when I say this, but I don’t like spending my personal time for office work. I cannot help if my train of thought diverts to ponder about a design related decision or a defect. I don’t mind staying late once or twice in a week, after office-hours. But that’s…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w30

This weekend I binged watched a lot of YouTube stand-up comedy acts. I read much less this week. Let me try to blame other factors. Workload is increasing. Commute time is increasing and I don’t feel like reading when it is raining cats and dogs outside; when there is bumper to bumber traffic on the…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w29

This weekend I binged watched an old Disney show, review coming up soon. I try, every month, to clear my TBR on GoodReads. I keep on adding more to the list, tch. I read Amal Unbound, finally. It has been sitting on my TBR for a year, literally! I had added it on June 27,…

Rain, where have you disappeared?

It is extremely hot these days. I mean, it is worse than May, which is supposed to be the hottest. It rained daily for the first two weeks of July. But for past ten days, it is either dry or very little rain. The weather is humid and suffocating. It is extra difficult for me…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w28

This week, I slowed down. Seriously, I put in effort to slow down. I read only two books. I tried reading new authors – both were surprisingly nice.  I still crochet one round at a time. Yet again, I am overwhelmed with the number of ideas floating in my head, so much that I cannot…
