I got lost in the flamboyant display of words.
Curiosity aroused me as I browsed through this article about the recent Metro Manila Film Festival. Having liked the recent show of films, I peeked into this article by some writer who thought otherwise.
But alas. It was just too profound for an average senior high school student like me to comprehend. He never failed to use a highfaluting adjective or adverb to get his message across. While some older people feast in this awesome tango with words, I wallow with confusion as to what he really wanted to say. Maybe the article really wasn’t for me.
Why do we have to use too much highfaluting words? He for once, is not writing a literary essay but instead a commentary. How will the common pinoy be able to understand such matters?
It lacked economy and therefore I can conclude that it’s an ineffective essay. Maybe he’s just happy showing off his uber huge sense of vocabulary tantamount to the universe, but me, I ain’t happy about it.
I’m not going to write articles like that when I become a writer. ^_^
And the title of the article was “Back to Basics”. Huh, how ironic.
