So, I'm back in the United States. The first part of my (long) trip was spent in my city, New York. I didn't cry at the airport. I wasn't overwhelmed - I was just utterly shocked. I couldn't register where I was. And I was like that for the first 3 days. It was only… Continue reading Back In New York City
I tend to put things off until I feel it's the right time to get things done. I had already written today's blog post yet I deleted it all and decided to rewrite it. The original blog post was written two weeks ago and today is a different day with different feelings. I've been awake… Continue reading My Next Trip: One Month Of Traveling In The United States Of America
We've been waiting for Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy and now, the wait is finally over. And I, of course, have to give my commentary. I've got mixed feelings, so let's get down to it. SPOILER ALERT: Read at your own risk. The First Episode Every season has to have its own foundation rather… Continue reading Review: The Umbrella Academy Season 3
Yes, the word "adulting" actually exists - I didn't make it up. There's a lot of things I don't like and "adulting" is definitely one of them. Simple Day-To-Day Shit Being an adult means you have to take care of yourself for every little thing. And it's not just basic stuff like grocery-shopping or driving… Continue reading Here’s What They Don’t Tell You About Adulting
It's about 10AM and I'm at the airport in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. I'm about to board my plane back to Malta. I have mixed feelings about it. I enjoyed visiting Amsterdam and a part of me doesn't want to let go of the good feeling you get when you're traveling. But I also feel like… Continue reading My Amsterdam Trip: Here’s What I Learned
3 weeks ago, I decided to book flights to Amsterdam. For those who know me, traveling is an essential part of who I am. It has a lot to with my relationship with Gozo (and I guess America too). All I had to do was click "confirm to pay" on RyanAir's website. My finger hovered… Continue reading I’ve Waited For 2 Years: It’s Now Time To Travel Again
My fellow earthlings, I am back. Yes, I took another break from my blog. I've realized that this space has more value than I'm actually aware of - there's so much I can write here, I just need to come up with the ideas. Trust me, writing the blog articles isn't the hard part. One… Continue reading Detached: My Relationship With Gozo
The last of the Sally Rooney trilogy (I like to think Rooney's books are a trilogy), yes, this novel is about the world we live in. I think everyone today (in these past two years) can say that at certain points, we all questioned the world we live in. It's so hard to see beauty… Continue reading Beautiful World, Where Are You?
A friend at work asked me the question above a few weeks ago and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. Ask yourself for a moment - when was the the last time you did something for yourself? I remember I was almost going to cry when he asked me that… Continue reading When Was The Last Time You Did Something For Yourself?
We all have multiple conversations with people but I highly doubt we take a second to realize how important they are for relationships. Sally Rooney's Conversations With Friends is just about that. Whereas her novel, Normal People, was about the development of one complicated and estranged relationship, Conversations With Friends follows an even weirder relationship.… Continue reading Conversations With Friends
