Sunday Afternoon

By Yakko Majuri

What is this website?

This is hopefuly will be where I host my "stream of consciousness" blog. My more structured and education-focused technical writing can still be found here.

Why is it called 'Sunday Afternoon'?

Sunday afternoons are often when I'm most contemplative, as well as when I generally have the most time to spare. They have traditionally been when I develop my best concepts for writing, so the blog name felt appropriate. THe bulk of the writing for this blog will also probably happen on sunday afternoons.


Raw pieces comprising what I'm thinking about at a given point in time. Barely edited, often written quickly in one go.


As someone who does not have a social media presence, I'll be using this blog to display some of my favorite pictures. Currently work in progress - more albums coming soon.
