For as long as I can remember, the words ‘bachelor’ and ‘spinster’ were universes apart. A bachelor is this cool, good-looking guy who can be in a relationship, but chooses not to. He probably lives in a penthouse with a lot of leather furniture and blue-grey decor, and a turntable playing smooth jazz; a different … Continue reading The Difference between Bachelors and Spinsters
As a self-confessed book-hoarder, bookworm, and bibliophile, having an out-of-control list of books I want to read is a part of the job. Another thing we book-fiends revel in is talking, writing, and gushing about books until we hear the gentle click of the kettle as it comes to a boil. Enough chit chat - on to … Continue reading Top 10 Books on my To-Read List
If you know me, you'll know that I have something of an addiction to books. I own roughly 350 books spread across 4 bookshelves around my house, and I have absolutely no intention of stopping until I get my own Beauty and the Beast style library. Am I asking for too much? Possibly. Will I give … Continue reading #CurrentlyReading: How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
I'm the type of person who frantically throws things into a suitcase a few hours before the flight.
Hey everyone! I wrote a short piece about keeping a journal for eve.com.mt - hit the link below to check it out, and have a great week. -Kelly x Far from being restricted to the realm of teen angst and that awkward phase you’re oh-so-eager to forget, keeping a personal journal can actually be pretty damn good … Continue reading Dear Diary: 3 Reasons to Keep a Journal (for Eve.com.mt)
Ominous title, I know. But you know me - I like to be as blunt and to-the-point as possible. Today's topic is something that many living on tiny Malta will be familiar with - construction. More specifically, the unbridled spread of construction, cranes, and concrete across the island like some sort of cold, grey plague, and … Continue reading It’s starting to get to me.
So I've never written anything like this (i.e. thinking out loud) before, but hey - why not? I was going through some photos I took yesterday, and stopped at this one. It's nothing special, just a photo of the sea - something which we have in abundance here in Malta, a tiny island in the middle of … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts & T. S. Eliot
Happy New Year, ladies and gentlemen! Now that the festive season and all the food, parties, and self-indulgence it brings with it are fading away into your Instagram feed, we can finally sit down together for a little 2017 chat. Tea? Check. Biscuits? Also check. Alright let's get started. Anyone who knows me will tell you that … Continue reading New Year, Same Me
As our charming yet construction-ridden slice of the Mediterranean is dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century (barely), atheists in Malta feel that they can be more open about their views, both online and in their day-to-day lives.
Definitely worth a read!
My name is Tiffany Martínez. As a McNair Fellow and student scholar, I’ve presented at national conferences in San Francisco, San Diego, and Miami. I have crafted a critical reflection piece that was published in a peer-reviewed journal managed by the Pell Institute for the Study of Higher Education and Council for Opportunity in Education. I have consistently juggled at least two jobs and maintained the status of a full-time student and Dean’s list recipient since my first year at Suffolk University. I have used this past summer to supervise a teen girls empower program and craft a thirty page intensive research project funded by the federal government. As a first generation college student, first generation U.S. citizen, and aspiring professor I have confronted a number of obstacles in order to earn every accomplishment and award I have accumulated. In the face of struggle, I have persevered and continuously produced…
