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,…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w27

The week was crazy. I read around thirty stories of varying length. Some, I have reviewed. Some are pending. Some did not leave any impression and therefore will not be reviewed. My birthday is nearing and I still haven’t worked on the final draft of the novel I wanted to publish on my birthday. I…
