Being a fan is hard.

You get to do a lot of crazy things for someone you barely know or know you at all. It’s a self sacrifice. You are giving them time, effort and too much affection although you know that all these deeds might all go to waste. Of course, unless you join a fandom.

It’s a place or should i call it a group or a society or a family that will accompany you in those crazy doings. They are the ones that will understand you, will comfort you, and will tell you that it’s okay. It’s okay to be the craziest girl/boy in town. They are the ones who will make you feel that you belong. Fandoms will let you feel that even though the real stars that you are idolizing are so far from reach, the people behind the fandom are always there.. though not physically but in the sense of having you believe that all your fangirlings/fanboyings are all worth it.

So what’s your fandom like? Mine, the Sherlock fandom is the best!

Marami sa atin ngayon ang sabik na sabik na mapanood and The Bourne Legacy. Bakit? Kasi nandoon ang Pilipinas. Wow! Na feature ang ating bansa. Isang malaking karangalan iyon, biruin mo mabo-broadcast ang Pilipinas sa buong mundo. Dapat matuwa tayo. Pero, dapat nga ba tayong matuwa? 

Kung makakapanood tayo ng mga award-winning documentaries and films tungkol sa Pilipinas, halos lahat ito ay tungkol sa isang bagay na hindi natin masasabing dapat nating ipagmalaki, ang kahirapan. Halos lahat ng ito aantig sa ating puso, maluluha ka, magagalit, at masasabi mong ka-awa awa. Tapos, magugulat pa dahil biglang masasabing “Ay! Nako, meron palang ganun! Ang swerte ko pala, kawawa naman sila! Tsk! Ano ba yan!”. Ito ang nagpapatunay na tayo mismong mga Pinoy, hindi binibigyan ng kaukulang pansin ang mahihirap, sa mga lubos na nangangailangan, ang mga dapat baguhin, ang mga mali ng ating bansa. Bakit ba kasi kailangan pa natin ng mga pelikula at documentaries para mapansin ito.

Sana sa susunod na mga panahon manalo o mafeature na ang Pilipinas na hindi kasama ang kahirapan o kahit anumang negatibong pagkakakilanlan. Sulong Pinas!
