I do this strange thing where I ping-pong between either being cripplingly shy, or not being able to stop myself from voicing my opinion on something. That 'something' is usually related to gender, women's rights, racism, civil rights, religion, and whether or not we should be putting pineapple on pizzas. Sometimes, I can't stop myself from entering the … Continue reading How to have a Debate in the (Maltese) Comments Section
A while ago I wrote a short 'creative' piece and uploaded it on Medium, a story-writing and sharing platform.
