Online shopping has advantages and disadvantages. But most of the time, getting all the stuff that you need with just a click can be a huge blessing. It’s very convenient especially at times like these when going out for leisure is prohibited.

According to Marketingdive.com, 75% of the Gen Z population prefers online shopping due to convenience. But are you curious about what Gen Z Pinoys ~really~ purchase from online shops?

Below, we ask some of our Candy Rookies:

For Marvin Del Barrio, a third-year Multimedia Arts student, he buys his skincare products on Nature's Basket PH and Shopee. According to him, he has often bought skincare products online even before the quarantine started, since the products that he uses are mostly produced in the province, so it's very convenient for him to buy it online than to look for it in the mall.

20-year-old Multimedia Arts student Rax Mercado currently buys his art materials on Shopee and Lazada. He also buys action figures on Facebook Marketplace for his toy collection, as well as indoor plants, ring light, and sunnies.

Rax prefers online shopping because of various reasons, like the cashless transactions, and being able to see reviews of the products to know if it's legit. He's also able to track his orders, and finds using apps accessible. According to Rax, his family likes online shopping and that influenced him to do the same.

For Monica Cunanan, a fourth-year Pharmacy student at UP Manila, she buys decor A LOT. She likes online shopping because there are certain products that she wants but can't find in the mall, or sometimes they're super expensive. She also spends less whenever she gets discounts from ShopBack apps and vouchers.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
