Hemingway, periods of transition and time capsules

in Lifestyle

“The story was writing itself and I had a hard time keeping up with it”, I read on one sultry afternoon in an almost-summer.   Hemingway. How cliche is it that Hemingway would perfectly encapsulate my current thoughts in just one phrase. Hemingway, writing at a cafe in Paris, drinking rum St. James. Obviously. How…

I’ve been recently struggling

in Lifestyle

I’ve been recently struggling. I’ve been recently struggling to find the motivation, drive and creativity to post something worth posting on my blog. Should I post a monthly favourites? Should I write a travel tips post? Should I post a recipe? No. I’ve been recently struggling. I’ve been recently struggling with my anxiety – more…

HOW TO ADULT | Cleaning

in Lifestyle

Nothing quite prepares you for adulthood than your adult sims begging you for social interactions, whilst simultaneously dying of hunger in a house that looks more like a pigsty than anything else. Nothing, I repeat. For those of you who aren’t familiar with sims – The Sims is a life simulation video game series, to…

We’re all going on a summer holiday

in Lifestyle/Travels

We’re going where the sun shines brightly, we’re going where the sea is blue. This song has been stuck on repeat (in my head at least) for the past week. Oh man, I sure do need a holiday. It would have been better to maybe start off this post giving a brief explanation of why…

What the hell is a pastizz? – What comes after telling people you’re Maltese

in Lifestyle/Travels

Malta? Where’s that, in Spain? Maltese? Isn’t that a dog breed? Haha, Maltesers. Ladies and gentlemen, many must be altogether too familiar with the above – and more. The Maltese abroad – those who not only stock up on Twistees and Kinnie whenever they head back home, but also those who face a number of newly-found…

Your life is yours to live; not theirs to watch

in Lifestyle

It’s been a while since I wrote one of those heart to heart posts which I always seem to regret writing after. Haha. But whatever. Guess what – doing things alone gets bloody lonely. With nobody to share your pain, there is no other means of venting about your problems other than, well yourself. Which…

The one in which I miss my flight

in Lifestyle

Empty suitcase in hand, and passport nowhere to be seen. It’s 5 minutes till the gate closes, and I’m still, well…at home. I look at my watch and then at my boarding pass, and realise that I have mistakenly confused the arrival time with my departure time. I’m thrown in a fit of panic as…

Cramming a year’s worth of resolutions in December

in Lifestyle

December – the last month of yet another year, which also happens the month you realize there are so many things you’ve completely forgotten to accomplish throughout the past 11 months. I feel like December can be compared to THAT ONE NIGHT before THAT ONE IMPORTANT EXAM OR DEADLINE during which you cram all your…

It’s not you…it’s me – an update on my whereabouts

in Lifestyle

Remember when I claimed I’d be blogging regularly when I relaunched my blog? Remember when I then apologised for not blogging in nearly every other post? Well, here I go again – here’s another apology for not being able to post anything due to unforeseen circumstances including plenty of moving and change. But now I’m…
