it's a good feeling.

It's been 2 days already with no school for all levels. It's like we missed 2 duties already because of this. Anyways, yea this is the 2nd day. Because of non-stop rain. Ah! Rain..makes me reminisce of a lot of things. Good times and bad :) One good thing though is that the 2 days made me catch up with all my lack of sleep when it's school days. Now that's a good feeling!

* Happy Bday to Marc Salonga! Miss ya bro!


I just came home from the dentist. I had my braces on today..AGAIN! My 1st one was back in AUH when I was like Gr.6 or 1st Year H.S.?! And now, this is the 2nd time I'll be having them. *sigh* Soft Diet here I come hehe ^-^

Don't Quit

When things go wrong
as they sometimes will,
when the road you're trudging
seems all uphill,
when the funds are low
and the debts are high,
and you want to smile
but you have to sigh,
when care is pressing you
down a bit, rest if you must
but don't you quit.
Life is queer
with its twists and turns,
as every one of us
sometimes learns,
and many a failure turns about,
when you might have won
had you stuck it out.
Don't give up,
though the pace seems slow
you may succeed
with another blow.
Success is failure
turned inside out-
the silver tint
of the clouds of doubt,
and you never can tell
how close you are;
it may be near
when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight
when your hardest hit-
it's when things seem worst
that you must not quit.


2nd Capping and Candle Lighting Ceremony

Click here to check out more pics.

When: July 8, 2006, Saturday
Where: Immaculate Heart of Mary Gymnasium, Holy Angel University
Time: 3:00pm

This was the event that we, the 3rd year students have all been waiting for! New uniform, new pin, a cap (for females) and of course, the real meaning of our course/profession starts..this is what they call “internship”! With more responsibilities on our hands! Whew. The tougher it gets huh? It really is a great feeling to reach this far. Capping is almost like graduation except in 3rd year college of nursing and is more solemn than the graduation itself hehe. Anyways, this is one of my memorable and unforgettable moment in life because this is once in a lifetime, and I'm lucky to have my parents here. Would you believe they flew all the way here to Phil. just to attend my Capping. Unlike some parents who didn’t attend to see their son/daughter get capped and pinned. Such parents huh! Well, it was a solemn ceremony though. But at the end before the recessional, noise was heard all over the gym with shouts, claps and joys on our faces. Congrats to all the 3rd Year Nursing Students who reached Capping! We’ve made it this far! Don’t let it slip away. ^-^

Never forget, of course..
The Florence Nightingale's Pledge:

I solemnly pledge myself before God
and in the presence of this assembly,
to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully.

I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous,
and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.
I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession,
and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping
and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling.

With loyalty will I endeavor
to aid the physician in his work,
and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.

what another week.

Another week has gone by once again. I haven't been going online that much since school started because of all the requirements we've been having. And deadlines are too soon because of following a schedule. See how busy. Anyways, here's what's been up with me this past week:

* The day was Monday and we had our community rotation again. Today was kinda exciting because we get to teach elementary students at the school in the community. We get to teach them health teachings such as proper hygiene and nutrition. Our group got assigned to Grade 3 and there were 2 sections for that grade. It was like 20mins. to teach in each section. Time flies so fast when you have fun! We didn't even notice that it was already past the time limit because of the fun we were having with the children. This was one experience that I would remember and I can't put it down to words because it was an experience that should be done for you to feel what it would be like.

* We had our community assembly last Tues. - where we had to present about the problems we have observed and surveyed in their community and find solutions for each. We were rushing because we only had 1 week to prepare. We had community meetings and all. Really rush because of less time. Guess what? I was one of the people who presented in front of a crowd of community representatives! Of all the people my CI picked me as one of the presentors, and to think that my speaking ability in Filipino is not for such BUT even if I was 'kinda' nervous, I just told myself that "I can do it!" At least I've said what I want them to know and made it through. (No one's perfect anyways, right?) We also had an intermission dance number and I was one of the dancers. That was the time I started to dance again. I think the last time was last year's U-Days. Anyways, over-all, it was tiring but at the same time a success! (Majority of the comments we had from our CIs were good. Less bad. Not bad for our first!)

* The same day of our community assembly, my parents were on their way here to Phil. and arrived safely by noon. Thank God!

It's been another tiring week. As usual - lots of quizzes, requirements to meet the deadline. Next week is gonna be another one again. We'll be being busy since Capping is soon - and that's next week! Exciting! And I'm happy that my parents came since Capping is just once in a lifetime. It would be sad if my parents weren't there to see me get capped and pinned (just like graduation.) :) I don't wanna that's all!
