Productivity Porn

31 May 2021 at 16:30
The clock ticked to five past three. Civilization was asleep, covered in the blanket of night. β€œAnd that’s one more task off the list,” he whispered as he cleared week-old emails, lying in his bed. The GTD gods smiled down at him – Inbox Zero was finally within sight. His 7-day social media detox was … Continue reading Productivity Porn β†’

Lunch Break

After what felt like an eternity, Gary Nicholson checked his watch. He was sure it was nearing his mid-day break. He had been clamoring away at his desk since he signed in at 9 AM, and he was positive it had been a productive morning. He was preparing for his lunch break where he could … Continue reading Lunch Break β†’

Hair To The Empire

15 January 2018 at 08:30
Ugh! Enough with the sloppy puns already. I love it when even the smallest details are given the attention they truly deserve. So it often hurts me that the barber’s cape at the salon I frequented didn’t have mirrored lettering on it. When I sat on the chair – the barber clipping away my dry, … Continue reading Hair To TheΒ Empire β†’

On Books And Book Books

22 January 2018 at 08:30
It’s funny, the world we live in today. When I talk about books, I have to specify the β€˜type’ of the book to prevent misunderstandings. For the greater part of human history, when someone mentioned books, everyone knew what it was. That is not the case today. Hence the usage physical book or book book … Continue reading On Books And BookΒ Books β†’

The One Real Moment

15 January 2019 at 15:41
I got mugged last night. It had been three months since I’d started working the late-night shifts at a supermarket. The pay was shitty and the hours long, but at least I was never alone in my apartment. But it also meant I could never complete my assignments on time. It rained most nights, but … Continue reading The One RealΒ Moment β†’

The Mere Futility Of It All

20 December 2018 at 09:30
More often than not, I tend to give up on tasks to be done, or on public resolutions I make when I’m not in my right mind. It is now almost a year to the day when I said to myself, β€œHey, I should participate in this Postaweek challenge! It sounds easy enough – publish … Continue reading The Mere Futility Of ItΒ All β†’

Woolgathering

28 September 2018 at 11:09
Purple streaks of sunlight fill the evening sky. You step out of your cozy house for a quick stroll after which you will have a silent dinner under the stars that you barely notice. The air is fragrant and light. So light that your breaths carry them away, beyond the horizon, never to return again. … Continue reading Woolgathering β†’

This Post Is A Little Stitious

21 September 2018 at 11:45
Taking time off to discover yourself is a given in the late-stage capitalist society we live in today. How else are the wheels of economy supposed to churn and move ahead if I don’t take off on a wonderful trip to a scenic location where the prices of basic amenities have been marked-up by 50%? … Continue reading This Post Is A LittleΒ Stitious β†’

An Update On The Cringe Repository

13 April 2018 at 10:53
I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of links cried out in terror and were suddenly broken. So yeah, I changed the blog address a bit. Oh, the inevitable link-rot. β€” Akhil Unnikrishnan (@akhiluk) April 9, 2018 After what seems like an eternity, I thought a bit of re-branding was in … Continue reading An Update On The CringeΒ Repository β†’

Gone

1 April 2018 at 12:15
You try not to look. You try not to look because you know it will end in failure. But you can’t resist sneaking a peek every now and then. Surely no human is above that. You try not to look because a glance is all it takes. For your hard work to disappear down the … Continue reading Gone β†’

Why Don’t You… Or How To Ignore The Voices In Your Head

21 March 2018 at 12:09
It’s amazing what the voices in your head can tell you. Just this week, they have been nagging me like that not-so-favourite aunt who pesters you to get married and sets you up on blind dates. Sure, I’ve been ignoring them – the voices – like everything else in my life, but I thought the … Continue reading Why Don’t You… Or How To Ignore The Voices In YourΒ Head β†’

Damned If You, Damned If You Don’t

12 February 2018 at 07:00
What is the vilest thing you could possibly do to belittle someone’s achievement? One way of doing it might be to claim the achievement – or part of it – as your own. Or if you want to get technical about it and I do, you could snatch the achievement and make it the collective … Continue reading Damned If You, Damned If YouΒ Don’t β†’
