Weekly Roundup | The Week That Was | 20w07

Is it Friday already? Dayam. Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Time’s flying super-fast these days. I haven’t gotten much done in this week. I was hoping to publish one book for Valentine. It didn’t happen, obviously. Else, I would have gone crazy announcing it. I celebrated the “Romance Week” by reading a lot. Incidentally, this time…

The week that was – 20w06

That’s how I began my work day. I know what you’re thinking. That’s a lot of pickle. That quantity will last me the whole summer. *exaggerating* I just realize now that I have not included the glass of water – the most essential thing on the dining table. The paratha was okay and I devoured…

The week that was – 20w05

It still feels bizarre. Yesterday was almost dream-like as I survived through the day like a zombie. Sleep-deprived mind isn’t always productive. Thankfully, Friday came soon enough. Can’t wait to sleep for 24 hours straight. How was your week? Did you read / watch anything interesting? Shabana Mukhtar

The week that was – 20w04

Our first and only Friday in Madina. The day of return is looming around. I haven’t started shopping yet. Too much to do in 3 days. Shabana Mukhtar

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

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,…

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…

Title: Crooning Techies: Sara’s Journey Summary: Sara landed the job she wanted. She also fulfils her life-long dream to live independently, and away from family….

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…
