A rendezvous for 'used to be', aspiring & present UCCians

Phil. Daily Inquirer’s Youngblood

Life can be so unfair at times. There are life lessons we ought to learn from experience. But isn’t it better to ‘know’ them ahead of time & learn instead of reaally experience them? by that I think we can save time & we gain wisdom about the world without the incovenience of consequences it might have brought.
I’m talking about learning life lessons from other’s experiences. This we can attain from our friends & from a good book which is the PDI’s 3 Youngblood books. It taught me personally about some life lessons & spared me the damage it might have brought.

Youngbllod 3.0 (Book 3)

These books are compilations of the editorial essays written by the young of the 90’s generation. It depicts how the youth of that generation lived their lives & tried to fit in the adults’ world. Although it was writen more than 10 years ago we the present generation can still relate to it like the cases of unwanted pregnancies, abortion, & climbing up the corporate ladder for career men & women. (to contradict the previous statement) There are times also that I couldn’t really relate to some of the articles because the writer’s english proficiency & vocabulary are beyond my reach. they are just too good to to be read by mediocre reader like me.

I also noticed another one: most of the writers are hailed from really good universities like UST, La Salle, UP, San Beda. So the book is an embodiment of the higher class’ sentiments. Not the lower classes like me. The medium of writing which is English hinders the rest of the youth of today to relate since they don’t bother to read anuthing written in English. It’s hard to encourage my classmates & friends to read it. It hardly interests them.
