DEXnote : E-Pop
why all of a sudden everyone started to care (read: why all of a sudden Earth Day became pop)

earth hour
it’s Earth Day today!
the world has been celebrating Earth Day for like forever now but it’s just these past years that we actually noticed and participated. the drought, landslides, and flood we experienced must’ve contributed a lot in our awareness of the effects of climate change. or maybe it’s the medium being used to promote that made people participate.
well, i have nothing against Earth Day being popular. and i have nothing against using pop culture to communicate and reach out. it’s actually a bright idea to immerse such cause to people’s preoccupied world to get their attention. most of the time, it works! and it’s a good thing because we are now starting to care. i’m just worried that some are participating for the wrong reasons, for selfish reasons. like how ‘cool’ it is to be part of such significant act. darvit! those people who use this event to be ‘in’, to be ‘pop’. 
anyway, i hope our concern to mother Earth is genuine and that we’re actually doing something to save her. i hope that this will not stop in just wearing green or blue or by watching an environment-related documentary. while these activities are good to promote and inform, what matters is the act that we do to contribute in actually saving our environment. and it’s not just for a day, it’s incorporating these acts in our lifestyle.

    i always wanted to write. i want to voice out my opinion on issues that interest me. i wanna chit-chat about tv series i'm hooked and music in my playlist. i want to talk about math and politics; culture and literature. i want to share my story and be relevant. and with this labyrinth as a medium, i'm making myself vulnerable by letting you in to my life. it's up to you to depict it. you may see it differently. you may be lost. but in this maze, there is only one way out and i hope you find it.
