Funemployed: Baking is my happy place (Week #13)

Last week was kind of a blur! I baked A LOT! Lots of cupcakes, macarons testing recipes and practicing! When I bake I’m in my zone, I also enjoy the solitude of it, and it doesn’t hurt when it all looks pretty afterwards. Last week reinforced that this is my happy place.

Funemployed: Organized mind (Week #10)

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I am one of those Type A personalities, who enjoys creativity. Is that a thing?

I typically use my phone to keep track of events, to-do lists, but lately I’ve found that I need to organize my thoughts more through pen and paper. The only trouble I have with pen and paper is that either the papers get lost or the notebook lack organization. I can’t tell you how many half finished notebooks I have in my possession.

DIY your Wedding! – Here are the best 9 resources online

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated being married for three months! I also attended one of my close friend’s wedding! Both these events brought back so many memories of wedding planning and dealing with all the details!

Anum & Hussain WeddingA few months ago, I wrote a post called Confessions of a Pakistani Bride. The reason I wrote that post was because I wanted to remember the emotions I was feeling then, and share my thoughts on Project Wedding! As stressful as wedding planning was, in hindsight, I truly enjoyed the planning part, and kind of miss it now!

Funemployed: Intentional Learning (Week #9)

Last week was quite uneventful for the most part. It was filled with lots of baking: cookies, cupcakes, macarons – i.e.: my happy place. I also reconnected with my colleagues and it was a nice chance of pace. It made me realize how happy I am with the decision I’ve made.

I think all this distraction was much needed to get away from the online rehashing of what happened in the midterm elections. The voter turnout and the results were definitely a sigh of relief for those of us watching from afar. All hope is not lost!

Funemployed: Self-awareness & Inspiration (Week #8)

This past weekend, we went to one of my closest friend’s wedding. We had a blast at her wedding, it was a typical Indian wedding, with multiple days of celebrations, lots of colours, food, dancing and music.

What surprised me was that it made me miss planning my wedding, putting together a vision and an experience for the guests. I thought that was a part of my life I wouldn’t miss, because it was stressful! But it really was a treat for my Type A personality, and my urge to be creative!

Funemployed: Take a pause, reflect (Week #6-7)

So last week I decided to take a break from these weekly updates. That is the beauty of fun-employment right? I can decide to write or not write. But really, I just felt like I needed to just take a step back and focus in on what I was trying to achieve in this glorious time off. It’s this bizarre feeling of being able to do everything but nothing at the same time. (more…)

Fall is officially in full swing! It’s so freakin’ cold these days and I’ve been unwilling to scrummage through the storage locker for my winter coat! I might just have to bite the bullet and do it one of these days!
