☀️ Weeknotes

An archive of thoughts and reflections on the week gone by.

Weeknote 12: A week that felt longer than it should have

stream of consciousness

This week has felt longer than most, and I’m not sure why that is. People around me have been falling sick with COVID19 or the...


Weeknote 11: Another side project is born

stream of consciousness

My cousin’s wedding happened (and it was festive af), so that was the highlight of this week. It is also the cause for body pain...


Weeknote 16: Small wins are still wins

stream of consciousness

The wins this week have been small and scattered, and so I’ve made sure to focus on them extra hard. One of them was buying...


Weeknote 3: Friends, noobs, and good conversations

stream of consciousness

I feel like there’s a bit of recency bias creeping into these notes — I should probably start taking notes mid-week, but that seems like...


Weeknote 7: She reads and revisits her heritage

stream of consciousness

I ordered a bunch of non-fiction books from Champaca recently, and the orders arrived during the week. I’ve been trying to read more non-fiction, for...


Weeknote 15: A newly-forged sucker for jazz

stream of consciousness

I can’t believe we’re already nearing the end of September. This year has zoomed past like a hamster on steroids in a Corvette on steroids....


How do some people command a room? and more

stream of consciousness

I finished reading The Starless Sea. I desperately wanted to love it. It had everything that captivates me: books, owls, honey, a labyrinthine library underground,...


Weeknote 6: A seasonal socialite

stream of consciousness

I feel like I skipped a week. I don’t know. Time is a construct, anyway.


Weeknote 19: We didn't start the fire

stream of consciousness

Tonnes of rain, lay-offs, last month was a write-off, working out, getting hurt, drinking ginger ale. Interest rates are super low, how do I go...


Weeknote 10: A postcard has gone where she hasn't yet

stream of consciousness

I have to admit, I’m losing steam on writing these weeknotes because my days have gone back to looking somewhat the same. But here we...


Weeknote 14: One of those book-filled weeks

stream of consciousness

It was a rainy, gloomy week, so nothing much happened, apart from the fact that I made it to IKEA! It’s huge, and I spent...


Weeknote 5: She finally takes time off work

stream of consciousness


Weeknote 18: Making discoveries and realising things about life

stream of consciousness

Consider this a bonus weeknote since I smashed a whole bunch of days together in the previous one.


June Week 2: Thoughts were thunk

stream of consciousness

The prospect of unpredictable rain has me chasing patches of sunlight more often than before. I like the over-warm feeling of sitting in sunshine, rotating...


Weeknote 9: Same old, same old

stream of consciousness

I started reading A Wizard of Earthsea in the mornings and on the way to work. There’s such an interesting magic system going on. I...


Weeknote 17: When life hands you lemons...

stream of consciousness

These two weeks secretly had 4 weeks in them. At least, that’s what it felt like.


Weeknote 13: Bougainvillea and whispers in the wind

stream of consciousness

Vibe for this week’s note is this lovely jazz number:


Weeknote 4: an official fancy-furniture-buying adult

stream of consciousness

I brought home a chair. It’s a lovely chair, one I’d been waiting for technically for the last month but metaphorically all my life. It’s...


Weeknote 8: Navel-gazing and post office visits

stream of consciousness

My sleep rhythm and intensity has been all over the charts lately, which seems like a reminder to get back to working out. I’ve been...
