Reply sa Katkat!

Batobato sa langit. Ang tamaan maka-igit.

Dili nako magets ug nganong daghang masuko sa kani nga blog entry ni ate:

TopKatKatPlaceSaCebu

I think ang guilty ra ang dapat mobagolbol ug bongga ani. I mean, tao as we are, we intend to make our social status better. What’s wrong with that? Mao ata na ang reason nga nagstudy ta to the max, we work like dogs, etc. It’s for the betterment of our lifestyle. I remember nga niana to si Mrs. Lumang (1st Year hs teacher) nga:

Nganong magmantinir man ug inun-unan kung pwede ka maglechon-manok.

Ang point is if realistically ka-afford ka (kanang from extra money nimo, di kanang makaafford tood ka pero after kay taong grasa na imong peg), then go. A little article shouldn’t be a burden. If ganahan jud ka sa starbucks magstudy then go. If dili ka ganahan moadto ana nga mga place kay di ka gnahan maalaan nga katkat ka, then re-examine yourself, basin katkat jud ka, dili pa lang fully bloomed. Keber lang if di true. Nothing wrong pud if ganahan ka motry sa kung unsa ang sikat. If ganahan ka motry ug bucket shrimp kay naintriga ka sa kasikat then ngano gud tawng pugngan nimo imong kaugalingon. If perti nimong tigom para lang makabucket shrimp then i think there is nothing wrong with that. Same ra man na nga nag-ipon ka para makapalit ug gadget. If magtigom ka para sa mapalit imong wants, that is not katkat, that is materialization of your dreams #choslang. If nagatigom ka para sa boracay vacation sa barkada nig december vacation, that is not katkat, that is giving yourself a treat.

P.S. I also believe that joining a bandwagon is not to be condemned. What’s wrong with trying the latest buzz ? What if you join the instagram mania, the flappybird insanity, ug uban pa ngara? That doesn’t make me less of a person. Ibang-ibang trip lang yan. And if you don’t want to be like the others kay proud ka sa imong uniqueness, that is fine. Just make sure nga you feel that way not because you want to seek attention and to impress.  Kay Uniqueness and attention-seeking are not mutually exclusive raba.

I believe uniqueness doesn’t automatically mean different from others, I believe it’s just being you without social standards intervention.  Are you being unique? (Okay, di ka ganahan macopycat) or basin ganahan lang jud ka nga ikaw ang the better one and with special attention (another normal human feeling). Or worse, basin example ka’g tao nga katkat. 😛  #mwah #peace
