My current desk

My current desk setup. I have been playing "musical chair" the whole of 2020, shifting my workplace across different rooms and desks. For the past couple of months, there wasn't a desk available either. I tried to focus, working out of the sofa in the living room and moving around with my laptop whenever someone switches on the TV. I could hardly focus and the main topic of my "complaints" was that I don't have any space or time to do deep work. This reflects in the less number of blog posts written in the past 2 months.

No, I don't work for any employer presently but I love to invest time in projects that are of self-interest (food and nutrition research, blogposts, courses, reading etc). 

My bandwidth became limited because of family related responsibilities in the past 2 months. And it is going to become even more limited in the next 4-5 months.

Before other family commitments take up my time and attention, I decided to secure a corner for myself, where I can do deep work, even if it is just for an hour or two in a day. Along with playing multiple roles (wife, mother, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister etc) in a day, it is also important to allocate time when I'm "Anu" the individual, and where I have the physical and mental space to just be me.
