Hi! I’m Thomas, and welcome to my blog, the quiet voice.
To me, blogging is about writing and sharing your opinions with others – and as a result, improving yourself and learning about yourself. Here you’ll find book reviews, personal updates, social commentary, thoughts on pop music, and musings about life in general.
I’m the kind of guy who cares more about fictional characters than food. I can be crazy, strange, awkward, and even cannibalistic at times (okay, not the last one. Not really.) I love expressing myself, mainly through writing but simply by talking to my
imaginary friends as well. As the son of strict Asian-American parents I always aim for perfection, but I like to think that I’m kind and compassionate when it comes to my personality itself.
I’m also the kind of guy who is quiet and shy at first but becomes more outgoing and expressive when comfortable. I feel very passionately about certain issues such as child abuse and gay rights and am not afraid to voice my emotions when necessary. I love thinking and debating about things no matter what the topic, so please feel free to comment and add your opinion even if you disagree with what I’ve written (and if you want to contact me one-on-one, you can do so via my contact information page).
As for the things I actually blog about besides societal issues… well, I’m obsessed with books. My ideal life would be to run away to a cave or some other cozy place and read novel after novel nonstop. My favorite genres include contemporary and young-adult fiction, speculative fiction, literature, dystopia, romance, etc. and even some nonfiction if the subject matter interests me. My reviews reflect my taste as I rate solely based on how much I enjoyed the book, not on its literary value or anything like that.
Besides social commentary and book reviews, expect posts on an amalgam of topics. Though I haven’t written much about pop music lately, I might pick it back up again – I also started a series of posts about college, which I will most likely continue. While my passion for the TV show Queer as Folk will remain on my tumblr (which you can find on my “contact information” page) perhaps some of other obsessions will find their way on here.
I started this blog as a sophomore in high school. Now, I’m a freshman at the best (in my unbiased opinion) college in the world – The College of William and Mary! I plan to major in English with a double major or various minors in Psychology and Creative Writing. My career aspirations have changed too: I want to become a writer and/or a teacher, or do something with my life that will cause positive change and help people in the world.
Well, that’s pretty much everything you need to know about me. Like I said earlier, if you want to talk about anything don’t be afraid to leave a comment or contact me privately through my contact information page. I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope you feel the same way about me!
