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 … 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) … 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.

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.
While the agnostic living in me might be questioning the creation of life in itself, the child in me cannot help but be marvelled at how one thought can ever so subtly relate to another. Just Monday night I was lying in bed, having those few minutes of explosive-creativity before drifting off to sleep, half … Continue reading On Motivation
and the reality most people fail to see. First up, WordPress, do consider having subtitles, maybe? Second, I'm taking a 'writerly break' while at work okay. I don't usually have lunch - no, I'm not on a diet as I don't believe in them. Just that I have a horrid appetite coz of gastritis and … Continue reading The Truth about Being Home Alone
