The week that was – 20w01

I have read two books already and drafting the review posts. The reviews will be up sometime in next week, or this weekend, depending upon how much time I get. Office was okay. After the skip level (you can read about it here: Shut The Beep Up | How to Not Lead By Example) and…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w52

It is the last week of the year and white hectic by regular standards. It is supposed to have less workload but… Anyway… The week started okay and ended on a quick shipping spree in a shopping mall nearby. How was your week? Did you read / watch anything interesting? Shabana Mukhtar

December 2019 Roundup

This month was chilled, literally and figuratively. I have become lazier and blanket has become my best friend. Laptop and notebooks don’t attract me anymore. Sigh! Posts published: 97 Words written: 20K I am adding more scenes to my NaNoWriMo draft. I don’t count the words I write for my blog posts. Books published: 0…

Fun Facts About Me #13

Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, umami. These are the five tastes and people generally have a strong liking towards one. Mine is crispy. Anything crispy is my weakness. Be it jalebi or chips.

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w51

I am freaking out these days. As the year nears its end, my to-do list is growing exponentially, even though the plan is to make it shrink to nothing. We had a day off on December 25 (Merry Christmas, everyone!) but that did not help much, except that I slept through the morning. My body…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w50

What a dull and boring week it has been. On work front, it was quite exciting as I got to work on the new technology – docker. Other than that, it was quite taxing. Also, I have flu. Yes, again. And, I feel terrible, especially if I keep my eyes open. I haven’t read much…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w49

This week was fun. I am working on a new technology. Though it is a challenge, it is also quite fulfilling, a welcome change from the same old routine work. I don’t want to blog about technical stuff, else I would have shared some insights about the same. We also celebrated Thanksgiving this Tuesday. Yep,…

November 2019 Roundup

NaNoWriMo is over and I am happy to have a 50K draft ready. I am readying to publish one book in December 2019. Nope, it is not what I wrote in NaNoWriMo. I have something shorter sitting in my drive for a long time. Just trying, nothing promising. This month was crazy and a record…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w48

This week was so hectic. I wrote a lot, including the novel draft for NaNoWriMo project, currently at 49,711 words. I stretched my target on blogging front, I have never posted as much. I wrote 32 posts. Most of them were drama episode reviews. I am watching a lot of dramas these days. Alif Ehd…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w47

It was a lazy week compared to last one. No, you got it wrong. The workload is still the same. I took Wednesday off to clear my head. I had some room to breathe normally, without being overwhelmed, ALMOST. I write only approximately 5000 words this week for my NaNoWriMo project. It sounds like a…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w46

The winter is here, and so is dry and itchy skin. Sigh! On the plus side, days are shorter now. Hence, this week passed quickly. Touch wood, for I don’t want to jinx it. It was a busy week – for official work and personal work. Some work items are finished, others are still pending….

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w45

I forgot to schedule the weekly retrospective posts for past three weeks. There is a lot going on and the weekly summary slipped of my mind. This week, the desk relocation took place. I told you about that, right? The management doesn’t fulfil its promise. The shifting was delayed by 3 days. The management doesn’t…

October 2019 Roundup

I had expected that I’d be publishing one book in October and will be ready to publish another one in December. But things don’t always happen the way we plan. If it did, life would be so awesome, wouldn’t it? This month was crazy and a record month in more ways than one. So, I…

Why is change the only constant?

NOTE: This Friday, I won’t be posting about my week’s retrospective. I haven’t read much; have reviewed some dramas and work is just the same. There is no point in repeating that over and over again. Change is the only constant. We know it. The change may be big or small; adaptable or difficult to…

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…
