Because we are sweet. Got my license and took my oath, but not doing a nursing job.
It’s kinda late but whatever. The Hot Air Balloon Festival which was a total mess.
After being a third party of a relationship once, I promised never to involve myself with committed people again. Now here I am, finding myself in the same situation.
Maybe it’s me being competitive or me being attracted to people in a relationship. Or maybe it’s just me being a pathetic bastard.
But oh how I am loving it. I guess i’ll have to prepare my sewing kit and glue guns for another heartbreak.
Life has never promised you anything. Nor has destiny. But people did.
Some said they would never leave you. Lie!
Some said they would love you until death. Lie!
Some said you were the most precious one. Lie!
Life is made of such sweet lies.
All that matters is how you faced the time you finally realized those were just lies.
We may ask, “Wouldn’t life be much better without these lies?”
But the truth is, the times when you lived on those big lies were the only times you lived.
Reasons for no updates. Moving out. MedSchool
Cynthia Villar officially made history with this statement. Well I watched the entire thing and i didn’t think she was that much of an intelligent speaker. She already received so much hate and I don’t think mine is needed but I shall speak my say on the matter.
1. The way she ridiculed and how ignorant she was of the profession is beyond me. Calling us nurses as people who are “mag-aalaga” and how she generalized that we only want to go abroad and be room nurses. She was equating us with caregivers when we do so much more.
2. Her mediocrity. Saying it’s not necessary to finish a whole nursing degree since we only do “pag-aalaga” jobs. Our degree makes us professionals and sets us apart from people who choose meager jobs. Hearing from someone who is running for senate to not finish a degree is absurd. For this woman to tell us a degree in college is not necessary.
A person of mediocrity and ignorance such as this woman does not have a place in the government. I don’t even want to begin to diss the government but allowing people like this run the government is just sad.
Well I’ve been out for vacation for about 3weeks. It wasn’t really a vacation since some of the time I spent looking for universities and good medical schools. An effort which amounted to almost nothing.
I’m back home for now before I go back to Cebu and check on my application status which I am optimistic about. Finally, I will be on my own, in a place with no relatives and few friends. It’s a bit unnerving but I am very much looking forward to it.
I’ve been always eager about moving out and living a life of my own. I think it’s just about time. I consider myself as a mature adult that is capable of taking care of himself. It won’t be easy but things like this shouldn’t be easy in the first place. As much as it a cliche but NO PAIN, NO GAIN.
It’s gonna be an interesting year. A lot of things to look forward to and a lot of uncertainties. Good luck to me!
My medical school adventures
So it’s been a week since I went here in the capital to look for medical schools and - achieved nothing. Primarily because I was too late for the applications. Well here are the unis I visited.
UST - My first choice. I met all their requirements but applications were closed since Dec2. Expensive tuition and too far from our home so I’ll have to rent a place. Best facilities.
UE - I went because most of my relatives recommended it and most hospitals in Manila prefer physicians from this school. Applications were closed just early this year and I was late. I met all their requirements too. Very steep tuition, hours away from home so I might have to eventually rent a place. the academy is revered for their excellent medical education.
UP - This uni broke my heart to pieces. Applications closed early December. Low tuition and the highest caliber of medical education. What more could you ask for? I reached the requirements but you’d have to kill to get in. We had some strings we could pull but the admission closed so there’s nothing we can do. They offer a shortened medical curriculum with premed instead of a baccalaureate degree. You can apply after highschool!
Moral lesson? Always apply early! Period.
So where does this leave me? I’m off for Cebu to try CIM. The best and most recognized medical school so far outside manila.
Some of the photographs I’ve taken myself. Another impratical dream I’m not pursuing.
I am beat, defeated, frustrated. I took a step and got burned. Now I don’t know where to go. My chest feels is empty, my spirit has left me.
Destiny played its game on me again.
