The name’s Slightly, and I’m a secretly introverted teenager from Hong Kong.
I’m not interesting. Welcome to the dark side the depths of my mind, in a non-creepy way.
My pseudonym “Slightly” is inspired by the Lost Boy Slightly from J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. He is my favourite amongst the Lost Boys (Tootles came really close) because he provides comic relief; my eight-year old logic dictated that this quality was the absolute bomb. It still is for all the
inappropriate reasons. I’ve sometimes been considered a bit of a Lost Boy Girl anyway, so I suppose it’s fitting.
I never realised my love for writing until I was fifteen. Since then, I’ve hoarded twenty-something notebooks and countless Word documents as a way to escape from — or dive into — a certain reality. Writing has both made me understand and appreciate myself, and somewhat realise that I don’t know anything at all.
The Blank Pages was born in October 2013 as my freedom zone where I often seek solace. It’s a platform for me to creatively express myself, and reveal the side of me nobody truly knows or understands. I like to ask questions that I can’t answer, and share my thoughts on the things that are important to me. In other words, it contains the blank pages that I use to create something maybe not beautiful, but definitely substantial. I
rant blog about a variety of subjects, such as travel, school and elevators.
Other tidbits about me:
- I live on Oreos and soy sauce, but not at the same time
- I’m an amateur breakdancer, which is probably why gravity and I just don’t agree
- I have a Pokemon or South Park reference to virtually anything
- I tend to read five books at once
- I’m sardonic, and I make no sense. Hamburgers. Unicorns.
When I actually have a life outside my blog, I’m probably:
embarrassingexpressing myself, i.e. sleeping PreachingDiscussing philosophical issues towith Science students
- Holed up inside my room writing History essays
Hatingtrying to love Chemistry
Thanks for stopping by. Don’t be a stranger. That’s a wrap.
