Hey guys!

Another great time doing THE SHUFFLE! I really opened up about my dating life in EPISODE 4 and hearing your ideas of a perfect date have given me some new ideas! I literally would use all your suggestions!

It's so important we stay interactive on the show. I love when I get to hear from all of you. Jesse, I totally agree the next person we date needs to have their life together! Shirley, I definitely would wanna go to a Laker game on a date! That's such a good date idea.

Thank you to everyone who sent their selfie videos! Stay in touch with me throughout the week so we can stay up to date with each other.

We have a lot more to come on Season 1 so you definitely want to subscribe to my YouTube channel for updates.

You can follow me @thomasorlina on all social media platforms!

Till next time! See you guys!

Hi everyone, 

I hope you all enjoyed watching EPISODE 4! When I was producing this series, I knew I wanted to take viewers to Santa Monica. I highly recommend visiting the pier. The rides are affordable and the view on the top of the Ferris Wheel is really great. 

I touched on several topics that included social media, dating, and work. 

Using social media is the best way for me to communicate with everyone especially now with my YouTube series. If you follow my Snap & IG story daily, you know I truly love sharing my day to day with everyone. 

I really enjoy chatting with fans of the series from all around the world so that's why I have my segment THE SHUFFLE which will air again this FRIDAY. I give out free merchandise so check it out! 

THE SHUFFLE is a segment where I get to hear from you guys so make sure to watch my Snap & IG story to hear what you can submit selfie videos for this week. 

Dandi and I had the best day at the beach during the filming of this episode, I truly can't thank her enough for being a part of my show. 

In EPISODE 5, I talk to you about my family, Filipino culture and so much more, you will definitely not want to miss this one and YES this is the episode with my niece Annalynn!! Can't wait to show her this episode when she gets older! 

Have a lovely weekend! 

Thanks again for supporting my dream and watching the show! 

Love, 

Thomas

Hey guys!

So excited to do another YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS: THE SHUFFLE (3)! I love doing this segment and interacting with people who are fans of my YouTube show!

Last week on EPISODE 3 I was really terrified going down this glass slide in Downtown Los Angeles, so I thought it would be a great idea to ask you all what's the scariest thing you've done in your lives?

Skydiving looks like a lot of fun but not sure I would ever do it! I loved hearing all of your responses and want to personally thank you for submitting all your selfie videos!

EPISODE 4 I head down to the beach for some fun in the sun and talk about dating life!

This EPISODE is going to be great especially if you love the beach!

Make sure to tune in next FRIDAY 10AM PST to watch it!

Thank you again to every single one of you who are watching YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS!

I've put everything I have in this series and I'm glad you are all enjoying it.

Thank you all for being part of this journey with me!

Till next time!

Hello everybody!

Hope you are having a great weekend! I'm so excited you all have gotten to watch EPISODE 3! We had such a blast filming in Downtown! 

It was really important for me to face my fear of this glass slide so I'm happy to say I did it! 

Since Malia was in Hawaii, I still wanted her to be part of YTWT so I'm glad we figured out the FaceTime situation. 

I was really blown away at how beautiful OUE SKYSPACE LA is! The staff was amazing and I look forward to going back. 

I've received so much positive feedback about EPISODE 3 especially the part where I give friendship tips! I value my friends a lot so these are my particular guidelines for what I think makes an excellent friend. 

Also, I'm so glad I got to talk about my idol, Maria Menounos and my friends at AfterBuzz TV! 

Make sure you're subscribed, liked and commented on EPISODE 3 to win merch on the next YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS: THE SHUFFLE (3) airing next FRIDAY! 

I spent a lot of time writing out all the concepts for each EPISODE of my YouTube show, it feels rewarding! You all have sent me so much love and support! 

Stay tuned for more to come! :) 

Talk to you soon!

Hello everyone!

I've received so many lovely messages regarding EPISODE 2 and how it has impacted them. I also had someone tell me it had them in tears of happiness.

People from high school have reached out to me to tell me how they had no idea I was going through all of that and I definitely again should have went to acting school. Ha!

When I was writing this series YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS at home months ago I always knew I wanted to share my coming out story as EPISODE 2 and told my parents ahead of time.

So often people think they know you because they follow you on social media, but explaining really what happened to me in a video to me was a better way to get an idea of who I really am and what I am trying to do, which is to help others realize we can make our dreams happen.

I struggled for years trying to find myself that I personally wanted to be vulnerable and show a side to me most don't get to see.

Reading everyone's comments and messages have really touched me deeply and I am so relieved you all enjoyed my personal story!

Hope you have an awesome weekend and make sure to get ready for brand new YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS: The Shuffle(2) coming out this FRIDAY!

Love you guys,

Hey everyone! 

I'm so excited to finally introduce YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS: THE SHUFFLE (1)

This is a new segment I created to get you guys involved with the show. I received so many kind messages that I wanted a place for us to connect every other week in between EPISODES of YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS.

In order to win the new black merch hat that will be available for purchase soon, make sure you've 1) subscribed 2) commented 3) liked EPISODE 1!

I will announce the winner this coming FRIDAY after EPISODE 2. 

You don't want to miss my coming out story which will be extremely intimate and personal this coming FRIDAY! 

See you then! 

I appreciate all the love and support. 

Thank you,

Hi guys! 

I really enjoyed filming EPISODE 1! I came up with the title of the series at night in 2015 when I was randomly thinking, if one day a network gave me my own TV show, what would I name it? and literally YOUR TIME WITH THOMAS came out of my mouth! 

I really wanted to introduce the series by telling you about myself since the show is based around my life living in Los Angeles. 

As the season continues, I will be taking you to some of my favorite places in Los Angeles. 

Looking forward to the rest of the series! 

If you haven't already, please follow me on social media @thomasorlina so we can connect with each other online. 

Thank you, 

Thomas
