Read full description of the books:
I'm not a newspaper boy, I don't mean the one who throws and sell newspaper, I mean I don't usually read newspapers because of tragic headlines and superstar scandals but I never thought that Youngblood really exist. I'm trying to open some old newspapers in the library and can't find any Youngblood column anymore and I'm glad they comprise most of the stories to a book.
Who are those Generation X that the book is talking about? There are many ways to define Generation X, well, I'm too young for that kind of term to be use but still it may be interchange but the meaning of Generation X is still the same. According to the first article, Generation Xes are those students who studied in the urban cities and went back to province to work (can be?). Second, they are those teens who have no religion or atheist (uhu? This might be brutally insulting) and lastly, gays in 90s (superficially a gossip).
People may argue of what Generation X means but one thing for sure, they are the teens in the 90s. They are those teens that will change the future and teens that manage to touch the hearts of others. This is just another collection of articles that revolutionize the ideas of most Filipinos, especially in religion, school, family, friends, work and so on. Writing really is a very strong weapon to counter enemies. Below are some of my favorites that I don't mind to share with you guys.
1. Non-Catholics Need Not Apply by Jan Florence E. Maturan - The article is all about the experience of the writer as a protestant and manage not to get a job because of a certain requirements; you have to be a Catholic. It was sad to say that our country is still in the process of not qualifying Non-Catholic people and this thing is still a growing issue. Until now, I can still hear those big bells trumping around the media and wish them to stop. O please.
2. Degrees of Deceit by Michael U. Obenieta - If you are aware, most of the single parents are female but as a guy an also a single parent have you ever think how to survive with your kid? Well, a na-tay (father acts like a mother), is formerly not common. Even if you have to crack other's heads. What made this unique is that the author give tips how to survive as na-tay and what it feels like to be one of them.
3. College and Beyond by Melinda Callegos Tan - When we were in high school, before graduation, we love to discuss our future jobs and careers. But we never think of the future as much as thinking what we will end up after we graduated in college. In this article it speaks of the naivety of the students and reminders for the future students.
4. Invisible Thread by Ethel Martinez Seno - Others may act stupid in front of other races and that is how the author feels when she was young as half Japanese Filipina. She was enrolled and lived in Japan for several years and she only have few friends, why? Because people think small about our race, they mistook Filipina as a prostitute and other more. This article talks about racism and how prejudice is powerful in damaging reality.
5. Family Portrait by a.l.a. - Most of us usually had a family portrait; it might be hanged in a wall or just standing alone in a dusty place. But how can you manage when one of those portraits frame bashed and scattered all over the floor? This is how a dysfunctional family works, scattered. I love this article on how he manage to see his family and how articulate he want to change from it.
One thing that never acts well in the book is that the articles never talk to me or I'm not connected to any of them. Although, the articles manage to talk about problems and happiness in the society but it turns out to me as a treasured piece than be loved. I recommend this to those Generation X who still alive and well and love to read more about it. Hey, I'm doing a lot of changes lately because of the book. Life is a cycle; it will always go back to the starting line.
