happy new year

Let us celebrate the remaining hours of 2007 and tomorrow will be a brand new year. I wish you a prosperous and productive year.

unproductive again

It was my last day of work at Standby English last Friday. It was very sad but I had to make the right decision. I'm not saying that it wasn't a good decision to stay in that type of work but then I had a different profession that I have to pursue. I am not really a teacher; I am a nurse. I want to follow my dreams. I've worked hard for it for more than four years. Now, it's the right time to make my dreams come true.

I'm gonna miss all of my co-teachers and of course, my boss and the other Korean peeps in that company.

And now, I am unproductive again, I hope I could find a new job soon as a nurse. Oh, things would be a lot different now.

Just Having Fun with Blogging

I myself would definitely admit that I am now an addicted blogger. I just started from writing an online diary until I finally discovered that I can also earn through blogging. And this is what I am doing now with my blog. Thanks to smorty, I can now do what I love and at the same time earn from it.

A blog for money? Yeah... You heard it right. You can get paid for blogging. This is really great for those peeps who love to write about anything. This is also great for those who are not so fond of writing. All it needs is just a little time and effort. But if you want it to make it big, then you need to exert a little more.

Another thing is, you get to meet other people and make friends with them. blog advertising is good for anybody. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. And that's it you can start to earn from blogging after a couple of months.

farewell to fujiko

Well, Fujiko is our dog. And I feel sad about her death. She passed away yesterday. Yeah... It was Christmas day. It pained me to see her dying. I can see her suffering while she was dying. I hope she's alright now.

Merry Christmas to all of you guys especially those who devote some of their time reading my blog. A bunch of thanks to all of you guys. Mwuah!!!

I Miss Blogging So Much...

I've been inactive for about nine days. I was so busy that I didn't have enough time to write for my blog. But hey! I'm back. I miss blogging so much that it was part of my everyday routine. I hope this will never happen again. Hehe

sisterette

I'm kinda' tired today 'coz we went to Marilao, Bulacan to pray. My sister is a devotee of the Divine Mercy. She's leaving by Thursday. And I feel sad about it. Surely, I'm gonna miss my sister.

I prayed that she would be safe because she's going to Ivory Coast. It's in Africa so I'm not really sure about the place if she's safe or not. And also, if it's infested with viral diseases or plague.

I was really skeptic about it. But I hope I was wrong about these things.

Whatta Helmet!

My feet was aching because I had to find a helmet for our exchange gift.

My first stop was on Tandang Sora, my co-teacher said there was a store of helmets along the way going to Katipunan. So I decided to take a walk since I didn't have any idea where can I find the shop. Imagine, I was wearing pump shoes! And it was 2inches high. Oh my goodness! It was a very very long way and I couldn't find any shop for that helmet.

Finally! I was able to find one. But the bad thing was, the helmet costs around P900-P1000. Whatta helmet. The budget was only P200. I was very disappointed. So I asked the tricycle driver where can I find a cheap helmet. And you know what the tricycle driver told me? I can find the shop never Ever.

I went to Tandang Sora to find for that helmet. But there you go, I can just find it near our office which was along Ever Commonwealth. But I still had to walk along Commonwealth. Because it was about 2 kilometers away from Ever. I saw the first shop and I asked them if they have a helmet. Luckily, they have one. And it's very cheap. I only bought it for P180. I was able to save P20. hehe

But when I got to our office, my feet were aching. That's really the burden of being a petite.

my last party at SBE

Yeah... Sad to say but it's my last party at Standby English. I had so much fun. I enjoyed it a lot. I'm gonna miss the SBE peeps and of course my students. Even if some of them gave me a nose bleed, I will still miss them. They've become a part of my life.

Well, enough of the drama. We had so much fun in the party. We had spaghetti, tacos, gimbop (I hope the spelling is correct. It's a Korean food), fish, and of course, fruit salad. I wasn't able to help Teacher Ricky to prepare the fruit salad due to a circumstance. We had a videoke. I was shy to sing so I only sang one song. The song is 'Tell Me Where it Hurts' together with Teacher Jona.

The party ended at about 2 in the morning. I was kinda' sleepy already.

Dec 12, 2007

it's our 9th monthsary!!!

Just wanted to greet my Honey. It's our monthsary today. I'm glad we've gone this far. I wish it will last for a lifetime.

I love you Honey!!!

Dec 10, 2007

almost

I almost lost my documents for my nurse license just a while ago. I was so thankful that Ate from Fruitas kept the brown envelope where I put all the documents including my two IDs; my school ID and driver's license. If Ate did not keep it, I would probably be insane right now. I even forgot to ask her name when I got the envelope. I really panicked and all that was in my mind was to find my brown envelope. Whew!!! I was really thankful to Ate...

Dec 9, 2007

just nothing

It's been quite a long time since I blogged. Well, my brain has been preoccupied with so many things. And aside from that, nothing so special with my life for the past 4 days.

Dec 6, 2007

it's Paris' baptismal

Paris was baptised last December 2. She's my Honey's niece and I am one of the Ninang.


Her name is paris... She's so cute... And chubby... Look at her cheeks... hehe


My Honey, Me, and His Kuya... Kuya Jack
We were taking pictures while we were waiting for the priest...


Picture picture!!! After the baptismal ceremony.

demo teaching

We had a demo teaching last night and it was my turn. I was always nervous whenever I perform or do something in front of many people. What made me more nervous was I didn't use the book that I was supposed to use for the demo. I heard good and bad comments. But I'm so glad I'm done.

Dec 2, 2007

We're Just Trippin'



Me and Honey went to the mall for shopping... ehem... window shopping. I saw this pair of shades in Bayo. And I liked it... Sayang... I don't have moolah that time. Look at the tag price... haha

happy birthday!




Yesterday was my sister's birthday and I forgot to give her a little space on my blog. So here it is, although it's kinda little late. 'Hope she still appreciates it.

coup d'etat

Our country is in tension today, and I am now aware of it. Oh my goodness, I didn't know that there's a coup d'etat happenig somewhere in Makati. You know what, my boss is more aware about it and he's a Korean. Right now, I'm kinda worried, about what is happening outside, because I'm really clueless about it. My boss allowed us to go home early because there was a curfew. I hope I'm gonna be able to go home safely

whhhaaaattttt???

day, I'm going to claim my Nurse License. When I was waiting for it, my name was called... I thought I was gonna get my license but the registrar told me that there was a discrepancy on my records. My date of birth was not the same. Whaaattt??? I have to go back to the records section again to fix the discrepancy??? Oh my goodness, I was so excited about it.

It wasn't my fault if the date of my birth is not the same with the other form. It wasn't me who wrote it was one of the registrars before. It wasn't even my handwriting so I'm really sure about it. Oh... The man on the records section told me that they will fix the problem by next week since the Nursing Licensure Exam is scheduled this Sunday so it means they don't have time for this matter.

But I think it's unfair because as far as I know it wouldn't be a long process to fix the problem, it was just written incorrectly. Life is really unfair. I hope I would be able to claim my license by next week. HOPEFULLY...

tutuban

When I was finished with my license thing, me and my Honey went to Tutuban to buy tights and accessories for me. I'm going to be the Ninang of her niece, Paris. It will be her baptismal on Sunday. Of course, I have to dress beautifully because I'm a FASHIONISTA... Hehehe... Honey bought a shirt for himself, too. But I don't have money now... The problem is... will I be able to buy a gift for Paris? Hopefully...

Why is He Like That?

Are men really womanizer in nature? I don't know why most men are like that... They can't stay with just one woman. Aren't they satisfied having just one partner??? There are so many questions bugging my mind right now. And I can't even make the right decision. I've been planning to break him up but I can't. I feel like we should fix things rather than breakin up. But sometimes I feel that what he is doing to me is too much. Imagine, I wasn't aware that he has two other girlfriends. I already read the text messages of these two girls and there he is keep on denying about them. He only told me that the other girl was just his textmate. But the other one was nothing; it was his friends girlfriend, but when I talked to this girl, she sounds like guilty. I don't know if I'm going to trust him again... I was hurt and until now, I keep on thinking about what he did to me.

I don't want to pretend that everything's fine after the fight, I wanted to know the truth. Sometimes, I'm thinking about doing the same thing as he did to me... REVENGE... But the question is... Does that make me happy?

Nov 23, 2007

i'm so lazy!!!

Because of laziness my plans are always ruined. I've been planning to get my EON card last Monday and until now, I still haven't got it. It's now Friday. I've got some other plans like going to my school to get my diploma, buy something, clean my room, etc... etc... That's how lazy I am.

Nov 22, 2007

scary???


My co-teacher asked me to view this video. Kakahiya I almost yelled when I saw this. Kakagulat kasi.

Enjoy watching!!!

Nov 21, 2007

salary day!

I just got my salary from my boss... hehe not a big amount though, but I'm still happy for it. It's still a blessing... aight??? I hope I could also earn hundreds of dollars like the other bloggers are. I envy them... huhuhu... Well... Patience is a virtue so I have to wait... Time will come for me. (Please agree... hehe)

C'est la vie!!!

It Bothers Me

I keep on thinking about what he said to me. He compared me to his ex-girlfriend. He told me that his ex was able to buy him this and that and blah... blah... blah... And supposed to be he was the one who has that kind of cellphone and the PSP thing. I know I wasn't able to provide him those things. But are those things really important to keep our relationship going? Even though he tells me that he's afraid of losing me, I still feel bothered about what he has said to me.

Nov 19, 2007

Money Matters

My boyfriend and I just had a fight about money matters last night. He was asking me where my monthly salary goes. And I wasn't able to give him a reason. I really don't know where my money goes. As long as I can remember, it goes to my fare going to my work, sometimes I treat him at a fastfood resto, some of my money goes to my personal needs like toiletries and some goes to my pets. I'm only working as a part time tutor. My salary is only about 7 thou a month. And for me that's a few amount if I have a lot of expenses. I don't know how to explain these things to him. He thinks that I'm not spending my money wisely but I think I am. I was able to save almost 2 thou for the past weeks. I was just allocating it for something else. I am applying for an online job and it needs a fee.

Well... Honey sorry if I wasn't able to save money. But I think I did. I just need your patience and understanding. I know there will be a time that I'm gonna be able to buy you something out of my money but all I need is time.

a car of my own



I just read ANAPS' blog about having a vehicle of her own. And it triggers my wanting to have my own car,too. We already got a car. My mom bought it for us, her children. But sad to say, I cannot drive it everyday. There are many limitations because it's not just me who owns it but my brother and sister. That's why I'm hoping that my blog will be approved by payperpost. I'm also looking for another online job.

Damn, I've been dreaming of having a car since I was in high school. I am now a college graduate but I haven't got my own car yet. I'm not into a brand new car thing. A Honda Civic Esi is ok for me. I want to pimp it and color it pink or red or black or whatever... as long as I can have my own ESi.

Actually, that was our first car before, but I havent enjoyed driving it. As I've told you there were lots of limitations. So to get rid of those limitations, why not buy a car of my own. But the only thing needed is a moohlah... Yeah... that's the most important thing to have a car of your own. That's why I'm working hard right to buy my ESi one of these days. I will be needing it when I work in the hospital as a nurse and later on as a clinical instructor.

It's not just a want but a necessity, too!

Nov 16, 2007

welcome to your new home



My brother's girlfriend gave him a puppy. He's so cute. I love dogs so much so the moment that I saw him, I carried and hugged him. I don't know his breed yet but I don't care about it. He loves running around the house. He hates staying inside his cage. But he always pee on our carpet. We already got 4 dogs including him, 2 cats and 6 birds. How's that? Hehe

the importance of the one you love

You'll never know the importance of someone until he's gone. But in my case, he's not but almost. I never thought that it would hurt me so much to lose someone like him who has been a part of my life for more than 8 months. We both didn't wanna let go.

... hell 'ya it's hard to walk away from the one you love fo' real.

please excuse my... English

Is there any time that you've spoken or written a wrong english grammar? And then suddenly from out of the blue someone made a comment on you that you made a wrong grammar? Hellurrr!!! We're only humans... We do commit mistakes... Ayt??? Even Americans made mistakes, too. No offense...

We are not perfect human beings... And we will make mistakes unintentionally whether we like it or not.

Heartache

I was so emotional this day. I couldn't make up my mind. There were a lot of questions that were coming into my mind. And everytime I think about it... Tears were coming out my eyes...Even if I try to stop them, they would still flow out of my eyes.

Should I let go to the one who I was holding on for the past 8 months? Or should I stay with him? Do I still love him? What should I do?

I'm into confusion right now... I couldn't decide... I'm mad at him. I wanna let go but everytime I think of it there's something stopping me.

I cried a lot this day... He didn't call or text me. Is this a sign to hold on? I was thinking to end it up if he called or texted me.

Tomorrow is our 8 monthsary... And it breaks my heart to think about letting go on that day. But I'm hurting a lot... I feel a lot of pains right now...

Nov 6, 2007

depression

Nothing so especial for today, but I feel depressed right now... Next week is my last week on my work and I feel sad because I'm enjoying my work as of the moment. I already got attached with my students especially the kids. But my work is not related to my profession. My mom is already forcing me to resign... mothers know best... as they say... So I'll just listen to her. Besides, she's going to help me about my work... But the saddest part is that I will not have moolah by December (not unless i would be hired as soon as possible as a nurse by one of the hospitals that I applied to). That's my only hope for now...

threading

After that incidence, my sister and I went to the parlor. She wanted to have a manicure and pedicure. I didn't want to have one because I always do it by myself. When we got to the parlor, the woman asked me if I want to have threading. THREADING... what an interesting word. It was my first time to hear this. Well... according to the woman, instead of shaving your eyebrows, they would use a thread instead. Yes, it is literally a thread. I got curious about it, so I tried. Ouch!!! It hurts a lot. My eyes even teared for it. I really hurts. I feel like I wanted to stop it but the woman already started the procedure. But I was very satisfied when I saw the outcome. It was better than shaving though it really hurts. The woman told me it hurts because it was first time but it doesn't hurt anymore for the second. So, here's my eyebrows right now. Just wanted to share you my pic...

What an Honest Man

My sister accidentally dropped her cellphone just this day. She didn't noticed that her cellphone fell from her pocket. She just noticed it when she arrived to where she was going. She called me and she was quite worried. She asked me if she left her cellphone. I looked all over our house and I can't find her cellphone. So what I did I dialled her number and tried to call. It was ringing. Luckily, a guy answered the phone and he told me that my sister left her cellphone in her tricycle. So, the one who got my sister's cellphone was a tricycle driver.

He was so kind to tell me that he got my sister's cellphone and he even told me where to meet him. I didn't expect that guy would return the cellphone. And when I saw him, I was really thankful to him. I thanked him many times because if other people got it, they would probably just keep it.

What an honest man...

it's holiday but i have work

Today is holiday but unfortunately, I have to work. Ohhh... I feel like I don't wanna work. I just wanna stay home and watch tv or turn on my computer. Mmmm... I'll just keep in my mind that today is double pay so nothing to be lazy about. I have to work... hehe... SAYANG if I didn't work today. At least there is no work tomorrow so it's still okay. I'm just used to having a vacation when it's holiday. But that's not the case anymore. I was a student before and now I am working and it happens that the company that I'm working to is based in Korea so even if it's holiday in the Philippines, we still have to work. But at least Korea have holidays too. So if it's holiday in Korea, we don't have a work.

happy halloween!!!

i miss them so much

I miss all of my students at Easy Academy so much. They're so cute and fun to be with. I wish I could see these kids again. I'm so happy that I've met them. If I could only visit them all in Korea.. hehe... I hope so...

My sweetest student JIM. He is very cute and lovable. He's my most patient and polite student. He would always follow my instructions during our class.




Scrabble addict!!! Sometimes it pisses 'coz she always wanted to play scrabble and she gets sleepy when we start our class. But she's funny though, By the way, her name is Jenny.

She's not actually my student but I substituted one of her teacher. She's very smart and friendly. I got attached to this student because she's very nice. She's also a fashionista. She's tall and beautiful... as you can see her on her pic. She's Jessica...

She's Katie and she loves to talk about her bestfriend and at the same her crush. But unfortunately, she wasn't able to study for last 3 days. She got allergies all over her body. I wasn't able to say goodbye to her. I hope she will not forget me.


I would never forget this student. Her name is Jewel. She's so "pasaway."
It's very hard to please her. Buti na lang she's cute. If she doesn't want to study, she will not. I have to think for a strategy to catch her attention. She's very naughty but a very smart student. She can talk in English fluently. She's sweet... She would give me a snack during our class with matching surprise... Hehe... She even gave me a goodbye letter when she was leaving.

do you really have to be HOOOOTTTTT?????

Do you really have to be HOT in order to be noticed by guys? The first time I went to a bar I've noticed that most girls are dressed in sexy clothes, most of them are wearing short shorts or mini skirts. Some are wearing tank tops (I can already see their nipples with my naked eye). I even saw a girl dancing with a guy, she's wearing a spaghetti strap blouse with her cleavage out, she didn't it if her boobs are popping out her blouse. And yeah... the guy was touching her boobs but the girl didn't mind it. She just enjoyed dancing.

Then it came to my mind, is this really happening??? Well... It was my first time in a bar that time, so I had no idea about those things. But I thought to myself... ?Do you really have to be HOT so that cute guys will notice you?

Oct 22, 2007

???

I just bumped with my former suitor just last Wednesday and my gosh... I remember the times when he was courting me... Well... that was justt the past... and I have a boyfriend now. Sure... my boyfriend will get jealous the moment he knew that we saw each other... but hey!!! It was just accidental... Nobody's fault...Aight??!!!

But I was thinking to my self that time... what if he was boyfriend??? Will I be happier???

My Honey Got Sick

My boyfriend got a fever for three days. Even if he was sick, he still went in our house. I got alarmed when his fever was burning hot. He said that his head is aching and he can't bear it anymore. He told me to bring him to the hospital. But I had no money that time. My brother didn't even lent me a money and he didn't even want us to drive him to the hospital. I called his mom to inform her about my boyfriend's condition but it was already late night and she was in her sister's house that time.

I had no choice but to take a cab to East Avenue Hospital. We had decided to pick his mom up first before going to the Hospital. But on our way to the hospital, his fever went down. But we had to make sure if he's okay so we still headed to the hospital. The doctor just gave him a request for laboratory test for urinalysis and cbc. He was also given a prescription. He was given antibiotic which is ciprofloxacin; and paracetamol. The doctor advised us to come back by Monday but his mom was already worrying...

We got home at about 2 in the morning and we were all very tired. My boyfriend got a little fever. We were thinking if he had already a dengue fever or just a UTI.

It was almost lunch time when we woke up. We had to take him to the laboratory for his urinalysis and cbc. We took him to Medical City clinic which was located in SM Fairview. We had to wait for an hour for his Laboratory Results.

Thank God he didn't have Dengue or UTI but he had a viral infection. The doctor advised him to take Gatorade with ORS as many as he can in one day. They had to anticipate his WBC level. It was normal but it wasn't that high. So our goal for him was to make is WBC level go up. He had to go back to the Clinic for has CBC on Monday to check his WBC leve.

I hope his platelet level will increase so that he will be okay and he will not come back to the clinic anymore.

go girl!!!

i visited my beloved alma mater

I just visited my school to get my diploma. But I have to return tomorrow to claim it. I still have to get my alumni card and my Transcript of Records for my NCLEX. I still have to get a certification from our Dean... it is one of the requirements for NCLEX...

How I miss my Alma Mater so much. I can still remember those days when I was just a student... so busy doing all the stuffs like reviewing for the exams and quizzes, preparing for the role play, waiting for my classmates for our duty, meeting for our group activity, and etc... We used to hang around to what we call Pavilion, it was where we do our assignments and other stuffs...

When I saw the students in my school... doing their assignments, I just smiled. I thought to myself... I used to be like them...

When I sat in the Pavilion, the students on my table were discussing about their role play... they were also practicing their lines... I remember our days when we were also doing our role play... We even laughed during our practice and make fun with our roles. We even said to ourselves that we were not just nursing students but we were also mass communication students at the same time we ended up calling our course as Bachelor of Arts in Nursing Major in Theater Arts... because we always had our role playing may it be a minor or major subject.

I wish I could go back to my college days... but I have to fulfill my career as a nurse... so after that recalling my college days thing, I went straight to the Administration to process my diploma. But unfortunately, I had to return tomorrow.

factors that causes stress to kids

These are the factors that aggravates to stress. I hope this would be able to help the parents.

1. Parent having problems.
2. Fight with a friend or a sibling.
3. Taking a test.
4. Wondering if someone thinks you're attractive (teens especially).
5. Not having enough privacy.
6. Birth of a brother or sister.
7. Moving to a new school.
8. Re/marriage of a parent.
9. Not having enough money.
10. A teacher who doesn't like you.

The best way to keep stress away is to have a balanced life. You should make a time for your kids for them to feel that they are special. Prepare them their favorite meal during weekends. Go out with them like going to the mall for shopping or going to a movie house to watch their favorite movie. Treat them like your friend so that they could open up with you what stresses them most so you could give them advises especially about school. In this way, you could prevent any further problem that your child might experience.

congratulations to pacquiao

I wanted to congratulated Manny "PACMAN" Paquiao for winning the fight with Marco Antonio Barrera. The Filipino people are very proud of you especially the attitude that you showed in front of many people during your fight. The Filipino people are united again...

Philippines is a stressful country, with so many problems that Filipino people face each day, they were able to forget it and set them aside for just one day to watch Pacquiao's battle with Barrera. It's funny to say but even the snatchers and holduppers stop searching for their victims and they watch Pacquiaos fight. Yes, it's true because it is reported in the news during his last game that there is 0% crime rate during his game. I'm not sure if it's still 0% (I wasn't able to watch the news today... sorry)

Pacquiao deserves to win. He is really a winner in every Filipino's heart...

Congratulations to you...

Oct 6, 2007

sorry guys

Well, you've noticed that my blog's topic is not related to my blog's title. I've been busy these past few days. But when I have the time I will post topics that are related to stress. But somehow my topics has relation to stress, right? Because I'm so stressed these days.

I'm really sorry. I hope you would still visit my site even if I'm just a newbie.

so many numbers in my mind...

I've been thinking a lot these past few days... and I hate to think about it.... It's all because of the money. Well... I hate having problems especially when the root cause is money... Money is just money. But I need cash to get my license in Nursing. I also need cash for my Red Cross (I need to pay at least 1,500 bucks in order to join that) and I need cash to pay my debts.

I just received my salary tonight. Instead of receiving 3,500 bucks as the usual amount, I only got 2,800 because of the two-day Korean Holiday. I didn't even have a bonus because I had a late. I really pity myself. How am I going to get my license? How am I going to join the Red Cross? And how am I going to pay my debts.

Im broke...

Oct 5, 2007

extend for work

Well, my boss ask me if I could extend my work until November 15. (I already filed a resignation and informed him that I would be working until November 8. ) I feel like I wanted to accept my boss' offer. I still wanted to stay in his company. Actually, I'm thining that what if I would just extend my contract until December. I wanted to save money because I still don't have any savings until now. I'm only earning P7,000 a month and that's a very small amount. I have to pay my debts and sometimes I spend for my boyfriend because he's still studying. Whew!!! It's really a very tough decision to make, because I have to apply as a nurse. I have to start my clinical experience so that I could complete my 2 years experience and so that I could apply abroad as a nurse (preferrably in California because my Aunt and her family lives there.)

mah cat


I feel relaxed when I arrive at home and see my cat. I feel like my feeling of tiredness has been relieved. Having a pet is really rewarding especially when I arrive at home from school and my brain is really drained because of the traffic and long hour that I've been traveling just to get home. Whenever I see my cat I just hug him. I really feel happy to have a pet like him even if sometimes he's a being a very naughty cat. He's cute right? I've got a lot of pictures of him. I always take a picture of him because I find him cute eventhough I'm not really sure about his breed. His a very photogenic cat. I will post some cute pictures of him so could you could see how cut he is.... hehe

oathtaking

Yesterday, we had our oath taking ceremony at Araneta Coliseum. I am now a registered nurse... Yeah I feel great when I hear that... But I feel bad about our oath taking ceremony. It wasn't that organized. We didn't which entrance door are we going to enter.

I admit that I was late yesterday... But damn! It was so traffic... Starting from our place until Cubao... It was also difficult to find a parking space.

an alternative insurance

Stress, stress, and stress... All you think about is stress when it comes to paying bills. You would always think about the comfort in paying your bills. There are some unexpected situation that you really have to spend. Like when someone is hospitalized in your family. Of course, you really have to spend a cash in order to restore the health of your loved one or to prevent any further health problem.

There are lots of car insurance nowadays, even educational plans or may it be life insurance. People are now aware that there are different health insurances that they may choose from. I think that
Ameriplan

can be an alternative insurance. I just visited this site and I think they've got a great offer when it comes to medical, dental, vision and others. I think they are also offering great discounts.

I am really thinking of having a health insurance because who knows when we are going to need it. Only our health can say. As long as we still have the budget for it, why not try to get one. Wacha think, guys?

mah dream house...







Having a beautiful and clean house was one of my frustrations... I never experienced living in a presentable house. I don't intend to have a very expensive and big house. But I want a clean and presentable one.

To be honest, I never had a house like this. My father owns an auto shop and he works just in our yard. I've nothing against his work or business. But in my own opinion, he should still consider the cleanliness of our house. Our looks like a junk shop. There are lots or wastes scattered around our yard... and I hate to see it. It pains me whenever I hear never comments from my friends. Even if some of our guest don't give positive or negative comment, I still feel ashamed.

Because your home reflects your personality.




We tried to throw some of the wastes in our house. But we were shocked when my father put it back. How I hate it! Even if our house is very simple, I wanted it to be clean because that's the most important thing. Sometimes, I am very hesitant to bring or invite my friends at home.

That's why I said to myself that when I have my own house in the future, I will see to it that my house is very clean. I don't care whether my house is very small as long as it is clean...

Just wanted to share it with you guys... hehe

resignation

Giving your resignation letter to your boss is really hard especially when your boss has treated you so kind. But sometimes we have to make a very difficult decision which is to resign because we found a much better opportunity. I know it's hard to leave a company that you used to enjoy to work with but then if you stay in your company, there might be regrets in the future... the what ifs...

Tonight, I just talked to my boss and gave to him my resignation letter. Honestly, I still want to stay in his company because I enjoy working in his company a lot. The work is very easy and I don't find any difficulties in there. But then, my profession is a nurse so I have to pursue my career as a nurse. I know that there much better oppotunities if I pursue my real profession.

I'm already attached with my students. I'm going to miss them a lot because they somehow make me happy even if I'm having hard times teaching them. Sometimes, I consider them as my outlet when I'm sad. I can forget my problems when I talk to them because I have to show them that I'm happy and I'm in the mood to teach them even if it's not in order to drive their interest to study.

I'm only working as a part-time online English teacher but I didn't know that my boss is already planning to change my status into full-time. Oh! I feel like I wanted to stay but then my mother is also forcing me to resign in this work since I have to apply to a hospital to work as a nurse. My mom also fears about the work schedule because my work ends at 11:00 in the evening and that time is very dangerous.

Well... I really have to make the tough decision. I really have to choose only one. I like to pursue them both. I'm thinking right now if I'll just work here until December and then apply to a hospital by January since it's really hard to find a hospital this season because this season is not the ideal time to apply for a hospital.

I hope I will be happy to whatever decision I will make. I'm so tired of thinking and thinking about a lot of problems. It feels uneasy if there's always bugging in your mind..,. right???

I really do hope that I will still be happy for whatever the outcome is... I hope there would be no regrets....

my elementary years...

I was already seven years old when I entered school... I started from Kindergarten II... I wasn't accepted in School of Saint Anthony (which was one of my regrets because that school was known to be the school of intelligent people.)I was enrolled in a public since there was no choice and the classes are already starting...

At first, I didn't like to study because I was a very timid child. I was afraid to talk with my other classmate and I was even shy to talk with my teacher. I was always along during my first two weeks. But then I was able to meet some new friends. I even liked school. I always do my homework the moment I arrived at home. I love to do my homeworks and seatworks. I can say that I really excelled in class. And yesss!!! I got an honor. My father was very happy for me that he even prepared a small party for that. No one expected that I would have an honor since they knew that I didn't like to study.

I can say that my elementary years are one of the highlights of my life because I was able to get good grades starting from Kindergarten II up to Sixth Grade. I was always on the top list in class. My classmates always give me respect because they know the I have brains. I was first honor in Grade 1, I didn't have an honor in Grade two but I was awarded as the Most Polite student... I already forgotten my award when I was in third grade... I was top 3 in our class when I was in Fourth Grade... I was fourth honor when I was in Fifth grade... I graduated in elementary as the Second Honorable Mention...

Isn't it feels great to have such awards during my younger years? I made my parents feel proud of me.

my mom

I didn't like my mom the first time that I saw her. Maybe it's the reason that I didn't grow up with her... I was already a toddler or pre-schooler when I first I saw her. I was aloof to her... She left me when I was just a few months old. She went to middle east to work as a domestic helper.

When I was just young, I hate talking to her, I hate to be with her. It's not the reason that I don't really like her, but it's different to be close with her especially when she wasn't the one who took care of me when I was just a baby and I would suddenly see her when I was already 3 or 4 years old. She was like a stranger to me when I first saw her even if my father would tell me that she was my mother. Another reason was maybe we were not able to build a bond with each other like other mother and child relationship used to have. The last reason was, she was always abroad, so maybe that was the reason why I wasn't that close with her.

But when I grew up, I realized that she was a great mother to me. I can't imagine her sacrifices just to send us to a decent school, just to give us food to eat and just to provide us the luxuries in life like cellphone, computer, and even a car. I couldn't believe that she worked really hard just to provide us what we need.

Without my mom, me and my siblings will not be able to graduate from college. I know that my mom really worked hard for us. And I'm so thankful that I used her money and effort in a good way. I know that it's very hard to raise three children all by herself. And I salute her for that.

I am now a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Even if I wasn't an outstanding student in class, I know that I still made her feel proud.

I am also a Board passer, even if I wasn't on the top list or I have a high rating, I still made her proud because she can see me that I am also working hard to reach my goals and dreams...

the first time i met my mom

My mom left me when I was just a few months old. She went abroad to work. I cannot blame her for that because I know that she was thinking for her children's future especially for our education.

I didn't like her the first time that I saw. I was afraid her. Maybe it was because of fear of strangers because I was a toddler or pre-school
then. I wasn't really sure about my age.


All I wanted was my father when I was a child.

first time in manila

When I was first brought to Manila, I didn't know how to speak in Tagalog. I can only speak Ilocano. Every time I remember this, I feel funny inside. My playmates played with me even if I can only speak in Ilocano. But we can understand each other (hahaha).

Eventually, I was able to speak in Ilocano. Maybe its because I was able to adopt to my new environment.


Until now, I still know how to speak in Ilocano. Because it is our dialect at home.

when i was a child

we lived a very simple life when i was just a child... i was born in our province, isabela... my mom left me when i was just a few months old... she had to work abroad for us to survive... my dad was the one who took care of us... i have one sister and a brother... i was the youngest child...


we lived with our grandma and grandpa together with our cousins... their parents were also working abroad... our grandparents served as our real parents that we also call them just like what their sons and daughters call them..


we had a small house in our province but our yard was very large... large enough to plant different kinds of vegetables and trees. i can still remember, we didn't have to buy vegetables in the market because it was readily available in the yard... we can eat any kind of fruit because we just picked them from the trees. i can still remember, we just climb the tree to pick mangoes and eat them together with my grandparents, siblings, and cousins.


i only stayed in our province for about 2 years...
