Publicizing Unintentionally… Awkward

Last week I accidentally publicized my post about Key recommending Nicki Minaj’s album on Facebook. I didn’t realize it until three days later, and by that time everyone probably saw how I fan boy Key all the time. Not something I wanted my peers to see. Then again, I am posting this on a public blog that is available for everyone to view online. And I might as well accept the fact that I’m an obsessed individual with no life a unique guy with unusual, interesting tastes.

This introduces an introspective dilemma. Why should I be ashamed of my tastes? Who cares if I blog about pop and books and Key and whatever else happens to interest me? Probably no one, but that’s besides the point. I suppose I’m a bit shy when it comes to what people know and don’t know about me, and it makes me uncomfortable for people (especially people who I know in real life, strangely) to lurk on my blog without commenting. Or maybe I’m just a tad insecure – who knows what people think of me after reading this blog? I imagine them being like…

1. “oh, look at Thomas! he reads books! hahahahaha”

2. “LOL, he listens to kpop. and he’s not korean! hahahahahaha”


4. “i spot a grammar mistake! i can’t believe thomas doesn’t know how to write english! and to think he reads in a corner all the time…”

My self-deprecating side just got a kick out of that. I actually don’t mind #1 and #2, but #3 and #4 concern me. #3 because I fear for my life, and #4 because I always believed I could write at least decently. I hope so…

Anyway, this post doesn’t really make any sense because I started with publicizing accidentally and then merged into insecurities over the internet… oh well! I have a copious amount of homework to do, so thanks for wasting your time reading this and have a great day (:

May Key be with you.

PS: By the way, today is the birthday of one of my best friends! Happy birthday best friend! You can visit her curry-based blog here.

  1. Nyeh, I could understand feeling worried about what my peers might think, but my friends are pretty much aware of the kinds of things I’m bound to say/do/obsess over. If anything, my blog is mild compared to the kind of conservationist I am. To be honest, I’m more worried on what my family would think about some of my potential topics.

    You certainly shouldn’t be ashamed of things you blog about, particularly since yours are mild. Now if someone were to go around blogging about molesting children or something of that ilk, then yes, they should be ashamed, but then again they would probably get caught and that has its own silver lining, but you get my drift.

    As for people being overly critical of your grammar, or that you read books, or just generally being critical people on stuff that you do that they don’t do, who cares? If you were like them, you wouldn’t be… well… you, you know? Besides, most Americans don’t have room to poke fun when it comes to grammar. On the list of “Things We Think Our Children Need to Learn Over and Over”, I think I’ve spent more time in sex ed classes and learning about the overly edited American History than I have about grammar.

    And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with reading books. For Real…

    And now you have another long potentially thought provoking comment. Good day, sir. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for this comment, it made my day 🙂

      I agree with the family thing, if my parents (specifically, my mom) read this blog they would be mortified and I’d probably end up on the streets. Scraping together measly meals of leftover garbage and living under recycled cardboard boxes. Ouch.

      I’m interested in your risque future topics – so far I haven’t seen you post anything that would cause much concern.

      That’s so kind! I guess I’m just accustomed to the somewhat conservative nature of my school/living environment.

      Of course, books are the best 😀 Thanks again for the superb comment, I appreciate it tremendously.

  2. Thanks best friend! ❤
    Haha here I am, stalking your blog and avoiding my por…now I'm gonna make you happy by opening all your pages and giving you tons of views and not knowing they're from me. Except I just told you. Yeah, I'm that cool. 😉
