The Sunday Post // a very EVENTFUL week

Last week was honestly SO LONG.

I’m spending today just trying to recover from everything haha. So many things happened that I need a whole day (or a whole blog post) to just process everything.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Let’s jump right in!

BOOK CLUB MEET!

Last Sunday, I met up with my book club and it was SO NICE. We headed to a year-round book fair first and some of us bought books there.

After that, we had a long lunch and hangout in a new place. The food was quite nice, but the drinks were the highlight. I got cold chocolate and it was great.

And to finish up the meet, we went to our regular bookstore haunt haha. I sold back a couple of my books and got two new ones. Super excited to read them!

All-in-all, it was a really good day. I met two members for the first time ever too.

MUM’S BIRTHDAY

It was my mum’s birthday on Wednesday. Since I’m now getting a stipend from my internship, of course I had to get her a gift.*

There’s a superstition in our culture that says don’t buy anything on Tuesdays. I don’t follow it but my mum does. Hence, I went shopping on Monday after office hours. I made sure to do an earlier shift so I could go shopping for mum.

After hitting multiple stores in a shopping street near the office, I found a bag that matched all the specifications my mum would like. And I got it in a really pretty peach colour too!

I couldn’t hide the bag since it’s big so my mum noticed it the second I walked into our home. So I gave it to her then itself. She loved it. I’m happy πŸ™‚

*We generally don’t gift on birthdays in my family. It’s always like that. We just wish and have good food if we can.

I LOST MY WALLET

Or rather, it was stolen.

I was on my way to the metro station on Friday morning when it disappeared from my bag. After reaching the station, I realized that one of my bag’s pocket zips was open and found out that my wallet was missing.

Assuming that I hadn’t closed the pocket which led to it falling, I went back searching the entire way. But I didn’t find it. I went to the police station nearby to lodge a complaint too.

Just in case, I searched the way twice more. But yeah, it was gone by then. I went back home and blocked my card which was in the wallet. And then I went to my office.

My mum and I were just thinking how could I have lost it. After figuring out logistics, we concluded that it was stolen and not lost. But yeah, I learnt to be careful about where I keep my wallet in the bag.

And in the panic about the wallet, I misplaced my scarf somewhere.

All of it took about two hours so I reached the office a couple hours late. Thankfully, I didn’t miss anything important. But yeah, it was a bad start to the day.

I did get a message in the evening that someone tried to use my card but the transaction was declined since I blocked it. And there was just a little cash and no ID cards in the wallet. Phew.

ETHNIC DAY AT COLLEGE

This was yesterday (Saturday). I wasn’t in the mood to wear ethnic so I wore a nice jumpsuit and went. I was one of the very few not wearing Indian ethnic but who cares. I looked good.

My friends and I took a ton of pictures and danced to music. After that, we went to a mall for a late lunch. And we ended the day with drinks at a nearby restropub.

The highlight of the day was definitely my drink haha. It was called Earl Grey Mixture. It was basically Earl Grey tea, Whiskey, and Ginger Ale. And I absolutely loved it. Credits to my friend Ronj for finding it in the menu and telling me.

ENDING NOTES

It’s been a cycle of office and home. I still haven’t gotten down a routine where I’m productive and that SUCKS. I need to especially start working on my project for college. Aaargh. If I could have Hermione’s time turner right now, it would be great.

    I want to join a book club! At the moment I am part of a writers group and it took me getting there to realize that the two are completely different things but I’m still enjoying it πŸ˜‚ I need to go on a deeper search of my community to see what’s on offer. Cold chocolate sounds nice 🀀 That must have been horrible with your wallet getting stolen, good thing you blocked your account before they could withdraw anything. My weeks been odd, now that its over it feels like it went fast but in the moment it dragged πŸ˜‚ I over exerted myself a bit and am in pain now because of going out a lot but it was worth it to make memories of a concert and walks with my dogs πŸ• Great post! πŸ’•

      Book clubs are super fun! We have books of the month, and are planning on having silent meeting from now onwards where we meet and just read together. A writing group is cool, too!

      Wow you went to a concert! That’s so cool. I haven’t been to even one myself yet. Hope your next week isn’t as tiring as the last one. Take care of yourself ❀

        A silent meeting sounds like a calming experience, you must feel surrounded by like-minded individuals but left alone do your own thing at the same time πŸ’« The concert was fun! Thank you so much πŸ’•

    Hello! Hi! I think this is my first time reading your blog.

    What is the reason behind not buying something on Tuesdays? Why Tuesdays and not Mondays, for example? Happy Birthday to your Mum!

    Book Club Meet sounds fun and cold chocolate sounds interesting and delicious!

    So sorry about your wallet. That has happened to me and it’s not fun.

    Have a great week!

      Hello! Welcome to my blog!

      We Brahmins have a ton of superstitions. Don’t buy anything on Tuesdays, don’t buy shoes or black items on Saturdays (although I only know the reason for shoes), don’t buy in specific three hour windows every day (for example, 7:30am to 9am on Mondays and so on). I don’t bother to keep track of reasons at this point haha. Even when I ask, many times I don’t get an answer because for generations kids just followed without asking questions (bizarre, right?!). My mum doesn’t know why for many but she follows.

      Thanks for the wishes! Hope you have a great week too πŸ™‚

    You’ve had quite the week!
    No shopping on a Tuesday is an interesting tradition, is it cultural or religious?
    I’m glad that you didn’t lose much when your purse was stolen, it would be a disaster for me!

    Wishing you a great reading week

    I think an actual physical book club (meeting in person, although online is nice also) would be so fun! and happy birthday to your mom! sorry to hear about your wallet though- yikes that’s no fun.

    That drink sounds fun! Hope you have an awesome week!

      That’s why I love our book club! All the members are people I wouldn’t have come across without this bringing us together. The monthly meetups are so fun 😊

      Thanks for the wishes! Hope you have a lovely week as well!
