Let us see what happens

I passed the local board exam last June 2008 and now I am a registered nurse. What I wanted to become when I was a kid is to be a doctor, a news reporter, or just to be in a office. I have never seen myself as a nurse but it came to be this way and learned to love it. There are just somethings that I didn't like--I don't know exactly what are those but I know what I loved about it. It's when I get to help people and seeing them getting better and the feeling that I get whenever a patient thanks me, it really melts my heart.

I have not started practicing since I passed because there are trainings that I had to undergo like IV therapy, Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support and First Aid training. I have already went through the latter two but my certification had already expired so I have to go through it again.

Another reason that holds me back from practicing is that I have to save money for NCLEX for me to be able to practice in the US. Why not work temporarily as a nurse and get experience at the same time? Aside from the expenses of going through the trainings, hospitals here are ask their applicants to pay before they train them for six months without salary and only after the six month period will they choose, among the trainees, who will be employed. Why not work somewhere else? I've tried that, it makes me forget the things that I have learned in nursing so I resigned. I worked with an international bank as a Customer Service Rep/Account Specalist for two months. The terminologies and abbreviations started to confuse me and the kind of work that I was given started to transform me to something else than who I really am.

So im looking forward to pass the NCLEX and work in the US because I'm afraid that working locally as a Nurse will starve my future family since Nurses here are paid $200-$300 only each month. I know that caring for people should not be about money. But let's be realistic, you need money to take care of your family.

I might have the chance to go to the US sometime this year and take my NCLEX there but Im not sure 'til that time comes. Im not planning to stay in the US for good. I just want to save up and go back here when I have saved enough and put up a business and be my own boss (with the permission from the future wife ofcourse! juz kidding.. =P).

So let us see what happens..

Somehow something happened today

Cleaned up and rearranged my room and whoala! I didnt take a picture of the whole room though.. but this is my work area.. I know it's small but it works for me.
Im very much contented with what I have but I don't mind having a printer, a scanner or other gadgets.. hahaha! =)

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for something to shoot but i ended up having nothing but this..
cabinet and sunlight

This was taken before Christmas. It's one of the most popular malls here, south of Metro Manila. The Alabang Town Center.

and ladies and gentlemen... I will soon be featuring a very popular viand here in the Philippines.. I will also post a video on how to make it. stay tuned.. =)

a very non-productive day.

I can't believe that I spent the whole day sleeping. Well, there was some awake time but all I did was watch the TV. I wanted to shoot photos but it was raining hard outside. I can't help but hybernate. haha. I want to go out some place where I can take good photos. Maybe a historical place or where there are a lot of trees or cars but less people. Somewhere I can setup my tripod and shoot endlessly then just pick and edit photos in my computer afterwards. I would like to experiment with the stuff that I can do with my camera and discover its limitations. I want to try out the things that I have learned from the book that I have read but I seem to lack the opportunity to do so. Sometimes it's because I'm to shy to do so with all the people around me. O yea, I also need to fabricate a bag for my tripod.
