My June 2009 Blog Archives

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

I would just like to share to you my blog posts during “The NLE Review Days” AKA The Toxic-Wasted-Haggard Days” As you can see, this blog was idle for one month. There were no post last June 2009. I don’t want to blog for that moment, I just want to be isolated from the cyber world and stuff but I can resist it. I need to have some outlet where I can spill the “s-t-r-e-s-s” that I was going through. Where did I place it? Here at Sandbox (it was a secret website during that time, I was the one of the “pilot” testers of this site). Anyway, here they (screen caps) are (notice the dates):





Nursing Board Exam Tips 09: During the Actual Nursing Board Exam

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Some of the “During the Board Exam tips” are already here. But I would like to share some more if you don’t mind. Hehe (If it’s not being the “Ms. Know-it-all” type)

  • Be OC but not to the point that you consumed all your time. Refer to this.
  • Listen to the instructions of the proctor. Error should not have a place on that day— exaggerating this part. Haha
  • Ignore all the others who were already finished—making noise when standing up and passing their papers. As long as there is time, You can still continue. Don’t get distracted. Be focused.
  • During breaks, spare yourself from comparing answers with your friends. It will definitely not bring you any good. I know it is very tempting but trust me, it will just heighten your anxiety at the middle of your exam.
  • Attract positive energy. As the saying goes, you are what you think.
  • Take a leak. Go to the bathroom before the exam starts because the proctor will not allow you once the exam already started.
  • First day of the exam is from 8:00AM to 3:00PM and the second day is from 8:00AM to 12:00PM
  • During breaks, its much better if you wont browse reviewers anymore. Just relax and prepare your mind for the next set of exam.

Lastly, DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE 😉 but don’t hyperventilate. LOl!

See you on the broadsheet topnotcher! 😀

What to do the day before the Nursing Licensure Examination?

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Got not enough sleep because of last night and today but I don’t care beasue I just want to share my “LittleNars” way on this one.. ?
Now, What to do the day before the Nursing Licensure Examination?
1. Prepare the things that you will need for tomorrow. Here are the “What to bring during the Nursing Board Exam”:

  • Notice of Admission (NOA)
  • Long Plastic Envelope
  • Long Brown Envelope
  • PRC Mailing Envelope
  • At least 2 Number 2 Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Sharpener
  • Black Ballpen (not sign pen)
  • Calculator
  • Snacks/Water/Candy

You can bring a bag but you have to place it outside the room at your own risk.

Set your alarm clock. Make sure your allowance of time can accommodate your morning preparations, eating breakfast and travel time. You need to be at your room assignment 30 minutes before the time. You should be at the venue at 7:00AM or even earlier (much better) because you still need to fill up some details for answer sheet and the test starts at 8:00AM

Bring/Wear your lucky charm, security blanket or whatever “Anting-Anting” you have there. Its not prohibited as long as it doesn’t contain the answers. Haha!

Don’t forget to wear your wristwatch and synchronize it with your proctor at least for the duration of the exam.

2. Relax! Do whatever stress management thing you know of and comfortable of doing. I know your anxiety levels are way higher than day one of your review, its normal. Now is the right time to open your Facebook accounts and enjoy their games. LOL. Do whatever makes you feel relieved as long as it’s not committing suicide. LOL.

3. As much as possible don’t review anymore unless it is very important and crucial to passing this examination. I mean, don’t over use your neurons. It needs a lot of resting and rejuvenating to be able to function at its maximum for tomorrow.

4. Rest! Come on. Look at yourself. You look like a vampire-wolf all stitched into one. JK. From the stress of your review and all the pressure from family and friends, you deserve at least 5-8 hours of sleep before the big day.

5. PRAY! Nothing is more powerful that prayers. Surrender everything to Him and ask Him to send his Holy Spirit to guide you as you rake the exam. If you claim it, It will be yours. ?

Good Luck! It’s all in your hands now! You can do it! God Bless RNs 🙂

Thankful people gathered to celebrate the second National Thank You day at SM Mall of Asia Music Hall last November 20, 2009.

As a prelude to the excitement and anticipation of the results of the 1st National Thank You Day Awards, Toblerone revealed the winners of the Spread the Sweetness of Gratitude Photo Competition:

Remi Ann Sta. Cruz’s ‘My Best Playmate Ever
Jordana Quedding’s ‘Walang Iwanan’
Pat Lorico’s ‘Smooch & Pooch’

The First National Thank You day award goes to…….

*Drum roll*


Former President CORAZON C. AQUINO

Well, she really deserved it. No words to express how Filipinos are thankful for her great deeds for our country.

The award was accepted by her daughter, Ms. Viel Aquino-Dee.

Yes, believe it or not, I was star struck. I didn’t expect anybody from the Aquino family to be present there. Being the photographer, I was the one who took this photo:

My bro, Jeric with Ms. Viel Aquino-Dee.
