the remainder of the weekend / leeds 15.01.17
Happy Sunday! I've just got back from a fleeting weekend trip to London. It was really nice to see everyone again, and to go to a pie party (which is quite possibly the best theme for a social occasion that's ever been). Herne Hill is my new favourite area of the capital, and I think I'd like to move there, be a yummy mummy (minus the children), eat brunch, and go to the farmer's market every Sunday... Seriously.
This week I've written about embracing lagom - a word which very roughly translates as 'not too much, not too little' - and my trip to Edinburgh last year!
On the train back today I read an article about wearable technology increasing the productivity of workers... Monitoring body language, tone of voice, and even the sleeping habits of employees is apparently the new way certain companies are now ensuring contentment in the workplace. I read this, and immediately felt panicked - how is this the world we live in? Constant surveillance grooming us into robo-humans, consumed by work. No thanks. Thoughts?
