Quarter to Twelve

It’s quarter to twelve here at this point and I can’t sleep. I was actually already lying down on my bed and was trying to make myself fall asleep but I really can’t. Thoughts related to my dream profession kept on popping out of my mind. Maybe this is just anxiety. And I think this might be the only way to lull myself to sleep, blog! I guess, this could tire out my mind.

I was again interrupted by the idea of not liking the work environment of healthcare settings. Though I’m already a registered nurse and I should get used to it plus learn to love my profession, I could still strongly feel that I am not into it. But I have nothing against the medical team and in fact, I salute those who are dedicated to this kind of career.

I’m an artist, an aspiring fashion designer. I would love to be surrounded by creative people and colorful creations, not sick or injured individuals and cadavers. Also, I deem that in choosing your job, you ought to decide on what you think you would enjoy doing even in height of pressure. I think it won’t even give you stress at all if it’s your passion. I hope you already understand some reasons why I continued with my nursing studies. Some are better left unsaid.

When I was attending our review classes for the Philippine Nursing Licensure Exam (PNLE), I was asleep most of the time or if not, I draw. Here, I have some evidences.

I remember my friend’s Paint Studio mobile phone application. I created these photos above using it. Instead of using pencil or ballpen and coloring materials, I just used a stylus. These designs were copied from the notebooks I grabbed from my seatmates. I was taking pleasure in it like I don’t care listening to boring lecturers and uninteresting topics (for me) as well as being able to kill time.

Another one, I started to doodle this using a pencil. From one outfit, it turned out to be four dolled up ladies. Then, I just traced it with a sign pen to make it unerasable.

Now, I think I’ll go back to bed. Thanks to this blogger moment which made me even groggier..


Tick of Pyrotechnic for 2013

Tick of Pyrotechnic for 2013

Every 1st of January, there’s a fireworks display to look forward to in our city. Even in other places, they have this as part of welcoming the new year.

I love to see sparklers in the sky especially when all I can see above are those because it gives me a galactic feel. But let me exclude the handheld fireworks that are played by mostly children we’ve seen on the streets. It’s dangerous! I don’t wanna see people having their body parts missing or injured.

Some are revealed like bloom that booms. It looks more amazing when it starts to emit from a higher area, then gets bigger, then comes down, and eventually seems to be closer to you.

Oh how I wish my twenty-thirteen would also gleam this way so I could always have a beam on my face. Okay! I’m keeping up the positive vibes.



This photo was taken earlier today and maybe you’re wondering why this photo was inserted into this post. It’s just that I was thinking of writing about a rainy 31st of December but I realized it would just spoil the New Year atmosphere. Anyway, let’s look on the brighter side.

I went to the mall to buy cake for New Year’s Eve and find some other stuff for the occasion. Because it was a last-minute buying, most of the stores had their cakes sold out. Still, it was lucky for me to find one.


Felicia’s Chocolate cake. The table should have this because I love sweets, especially cakes and ice creams. I always crave for those.

As I am writing this, it’s a few minutes before the year ends and what I’m craving for since this morning is SWEETS for NEW YEAR'S TREAT

It may not be the coffee almond cookies flavor which is my favorite (unavailable) but it still tastes good and is needed by my sweet tooth. I can’t wait to consume all those that will be served on the table. Happy New Year!

Two Sleeps Til 2013

2012 has been a rough yet enjoyable year for me because despite all the tribulations I was confronted with, I remained tough and still found a lot of reasons for jubilation.

Firstly, I’m glad that I survived the challenges of being a nursing student to being a registered nurse. The decision of continuing my education on this field wasn’t a remorseful thing for me because I gained a lot of knowledge and had loads of fun experience all throughout my schooling. Our related learning experiences were full of adventure since we had many out-of-town duties. Maybe that was one of the reasons why I didn’t quit the course though I’m not truly dedicated to it; I just love to travel. Besides, this is where I found more friends, those kind of people whom I really hang out with. Meet them!

These photos above were taken last December 2011 when we stayed at Sarabia Manor Hotel, Iloilo for our Philippine Nursing Licensure Exam. And Thank God, I passed! If I didn’t, I think I wouldn’t be allowed to carry on with my Dressmaking vocational course which I already finished.

I also received a medal during our graduation day, which was held on December 16, 2012, for being one of the most outstanding students in our dressmaking class.

Working as a nurse in healthcare institutions may not ensue because I am now firm with my choice. I really wanna pursue my passion and enjoy the rest of my years practicing my dream profession. I am positive that I will be a fashion designer someday.

Next year will be a new chapter and I’ll be tackling it with no fear. 2013, PLEASE BE GOOD! 🙂


*These were my random wall posts on my Facebook account…

TIME is like a NOOSE which can be tightened and slackened.

My LIFE is comparable to a VOLATILE SOLVENT. I am the substance being dissolved in unpredictable situations and eventually, the stained part of me evaporates to produce a more concentrated solid substance of me.

You might lose your balance upon crossing the threshold of the UNPREDICTABLE. So, you better be geared up with VALOR and POTENCY.

As soon as I find it, I’ll take a FIRM GRIP on it and bring it anywhere I go.

Cast off your INHIBITIONS and do whatever keeps you IN HIGH SPIRITS.

LIFE is like a SONG LYRICS, full of meaning and at times perplexing.

seeker of SYMPATHY

The opponent always gets the sympathy!

Though she’s not the one who’s responsible for the fault, she’s always seen as the clash initiator. It feels like a thumping pain for her when she already clearly explained her side yet she’s being judged unjustly. The kind of pain that gets deeper into the holes of her heart and spreads systemically.

The jury should take into account what’s right and wrong upon giving the verdict. Behind their cognizant mind is their hidden guilt. Surreptitiously, they have come to realizations of what they had supposed to do and about the wrong they had done but they don’t want to see themselves appear guilt-ridden.

The seeker of SYMPATHY is looking forward that in time, they get to reflect on it and realize everything so eventually they’ll act the way they should for it sets her off to tears whenever she gets to encounter the tribunal moment for the crime she’s not liable of. Ever since, she wasn’t able to experience console from the compassionate and that is why, until now, she’s longing for it yearning to escape from the rails of injustice .


at INTENSE emotions

People who are sensitive could easily realize their wrong doings. Those who are insensitive, couldn’t. And those who are oversensitive tend to overreact on minute things they mistakenly perceive.

You do not need to be told of how you should act. Instead, try to feel how others respond on the way you act and mend it!

If a person is not amenable to constructive criticisms, probably, there’s no other way to refurbish it! It’ll just need space and time in order for learning experiences to pass.. LEARN and DISCERN!

The way you perceive yourself is not an excuse. Don’t set it stable, instead, find ways to grow. Try to accept what they think about you because they’re the audience of yourself and they give you the critique you deserve. Aren’t you going to set it right in order to be the one you should be and to be totally loved by them?

It’s not always the sweet side which is out in the open. Once patience is spoiled, the taste of bitterness is then savored!

Don’t just focus on the consideration you want to gain from others because there’s also a need for you to modify your ways for the better.

We can’t predict how things would happen, when would it be, or what would it be. But just be ready!

All of us went through the bitterness in life, only that, those were on different situations but at the same height. Never compare your experiences with others’ and perceive yourself the way you measure that comparison. No excuses and no limitations as well!
