DISEASE of the URBAN GENERATION

The worst disease are the ones that we are not even aware of it.

It is conceded that the generation today especially the city folks are having various problematic traits. There is irresponsibility, insensitiveness, sloth, only to name a few names on the long list. But all these traits have one thing in common. They all have been badgering the society since Mankind Day 1. But one trait begs to differ. This trait was born together with technology.

They all have been badgering the society since Mankind Day 1. But one trait begs to differ. This trait was born together with technology. This problematic trait was born the same day the camera was invented. V.A.N.I.T.Y.

Yes, a lot of very vain people were born together with the camera. the same day the camera was invented. At first, the society is not bothered with this problem for the people of the Early Tech Age were not much addicted to taking shots of themselves or whatsoever. But these past few years, the illness [vanity] has gone to its extremities or so I have heard. Together with the worsening of the illness was the birth of new categories of people i.e. jejemons with all their signature poses. Also, there are now the ultra-VAIN people.

People especially those who own cameras take tons of pictures of themselves. One face, one scene takes a hundred pictures due to different poses, different angles, as they defend. This kind of situation is very disturbing.  They have become more than a fad actually. The worst part is that some people don’t even realize they are already incurring this disease. They would only know when someone would stand up to them and say, “Hey, why are you so vain?” and of course it would come as a surprise to them that yes they haven’t noticed yet.

So why did I write this article about vanity? Simple. I was a victim. I never realized that I use my webcam and my camera more than necessary. Now, I learned a lesson, vanity is no simple trait, you don’t even see it coming. Hope everyone would also be more careful next time to avoid embarrassment.
