My unproductive addiction…

My mornings start with my mun calling out my name loud enough that the other Zainabs of the neighbourhood are alerted that it is 7:30 am. I toss around in my bed with my blanky till she comes to pull it away. Apparently, Indian mums have yet to gasp the concept of snooze. Huh…


The first thing apart from my mother’s judgy face, I see is my cell phone. And on comes Facebook, Instagram and of course my mails. I have convinced myself that the sole reason I check my cell with my half-opened eyes is cause I need to know what is going. What is really going on is a cat video and a kangaroo rescue story on The Dodo’s Facebook page. But I still relent and continue till I have made my way through breakfast.


As the day continues, work happens and at the end of a tiring day, I am back home. As soon as I am freshen up, I am either on Netflix or on YouTube. Last two weeks have been tech reviews nonstop.


Then the clock hits 11 pm. A faint sense of guilt takes over. I was home by 7 pm and managed to do nothing much. And then, I get back to my cell phone to drive the feeling away till it is late and I have to get in bed. Sigh…


Every night I say I will do better tomorrow. And every morning I forget. Nevertheless, I still try. Progress shows up slowly. That is, if you start with it in the first place.


It is 1:00 am now. At least, I finished writing this…
