So yes, a series of blog posts I am writing many weeks after. Writing has been difficult, to say the least. But here we are catching up, piecing together life, little by little. Continue reading Quarantine Diaries: Hi, how are you doing?
If this is the first time that you are WFH, it can be daunting. Here is a little something I hope that would help, some of these still stand true from my first post back in 2015 but think of them as perhaps, updated versions of the same, a new, advanced version from Seni in 2020.

Yes, I know. I never thought I will ditch my old school planner for a bullet journal either because it’s just too much work. Old school planners are great but finding that right fit is like trying to find that perfect pair of jeans. It’s a shit tonne of work. But I haven’t given up on old-school planners, it’s been a 10+ year long relationship with. We are in transition okay. Continue reading Bullet Journaling for Noobs
I was born to a privileged generation, Millennials they call us. True, as a Sri Lankan I had war, but then I lived in Colombo and the most we did was have a “drill” for emergency situations during the late 90s. But unless you live in Sri Lanka, it would be difficult to understand as to why we weren’t the “direct” victims of war. Yes, … Continue reading This Millennial in Colombo
It’s raining and I’m miserable. I wanted to Give Thanks later today but with yesterday’s remnants of awful rains and this morning’s gloomy skies, trust me, I feel grateful to no one. I know I sound wretchedly insane to be saying what I am saying given the continuous weeks of mad heat but I was (am) one of those silent warriors that advocated for preferred warm … Continue reading Non-Motivation Tuesday
Two things work through my mind as I start typing this out: On how pretentious a productive person I might sound (loving the alliteration though, can’t help it, slurp); IT’S BEEN THE SECOND DAY IN A ROW SINCE I WROTE SLASHED BLOGGED. GAH. YAY. OHMYGOSHImuststopbeingasdramatic. Jokes aside though, I have some productive tendencies. It all comes down to how productive I genuinely want to be. … Continue reading On Productivity
Let’s not even start with the apologies because it would just be superbly ranty and not pretty and we all know how it would go down, yes? A few months or a year into my twenties, I began to identify myself as a writer. My work before university and this blog to a great extent contributed towards this little thought (it’s been six years on … Continue reading On Journaling
For most of (what I will reveal through this post) the part, I work from home. Or not “home” in its traditional sense, but let’s just reword it to, “alternate workspace”, because I more often than not sit occasionally at “workspaces” mercilessly hogging their wifi or grace a series of coffee shops. Very rarely do I now work from “home” as we know it, as there are one too many meetings happening in the “City” #SuburbanGirl and the house was in need of a chauffeur. I volunteered for the latter as this not only helped me cut down my travel costs but also helped me ensure the money saved was spent on exorbitantly priced coffee.
