An introduction of sorts

Amelia Lapena-Bonifacio, in a regular show of Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas, would usually describe "introduction" as "Kapag di mo ako kilala at di kita kilala, kailangan natin ng introduction."

Though I'm not going to write details here of me myself and I, I find it apt to make an introduction of sorts for this first entry. As you might have gleaned from my blog title (EDIT: the title used to be Not Quite Quiet, but I later on decided I didn't like how it sounds), I'm a quiet person, leaning on the passive (and sometimes passive-aggressive) tendencies of, uh, quietness. But I'm really trying to change all that, and that's perhaps why I decided that one day I'd like to be a writer. Because being too shy to speak up doesn't necessarily mean I have to keep it all to myself. And I'm not planning to stay still while everything blows up around me.

I'm not going to delve into any of the "still waters run deep" crap. It's overused, and I don't always want to be thought of as "deep." It's a little too abstract an adjective to describe someone anyway, and I'm no poet. So, let's just settle for the fact that I'm still learning, and am enjoying what I'm learning, and in this blog I'll share what I know.
