I am officially a Distance Education Learner :]

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Few months ago, I have been waiting for the approval of my MAN (Master of Arts in Nursing) application at University of the Philippines Open University… And finally, I got my most awaited letter containing this:

A lot of people may not know about University of the Philippines Open University and may think of it as a “fly by night” University of the Philippines school but it definitely ISN’T.

UP Open University is a National Center of Excellence in Open Learning and Distance Education that offers education opportunities to individuals aspiring for higher education and improved qualifications to for Filipinos who are unable to take advantage of traditional modes of education. In fact, my mum and brother is a UPOU graduate. For more information, click here.

Distance Education means you can learn at your own pace. You have to be disciplined in reading your modules, participating in online discussions and doing your assignment. I don’t expect it to be easy but then, thinking of what it will bring to my career after finishing this degree definitely inspired me a lot. On the bright side, I now have a reason to extend my online hours… JK. :]

Enrolling and receiving my 2.5 thick modules and having to maintain a GWA (General Weighted Average) of 2.0 brought me to a tachycardic state but I a person of determination. I won’t turn back. This is it!

This is a big step for my nursing career and I hope I can make it out ALIVE. Haha!

—Student Mode [ON] —

I tore my module just so I can read the chapters when I am on duty.
I don’t want to carry those big books at work :]

I learned TLC :]

Just an update… Will make this very short…

I have been a volunteer nurse for almost 2 months already and I am just gonna say, I am loving it. I am not allowed to tell you where I am assigned but it is such an honor to be where I am now.

At first I was like, “What will I going to learn there?” but then, as I go on duty, I am learning not on the nursing procedures etc but on how to care for the patient, how to be emphatic, how to be therapeutic and practice those 3 letters that we always say… TLC— Tender, Love and Care…

I will be assigned there for 3 months and then we’ll see where will I be assigned next.

Where I am now is very comfortable, I receive allowance (Not all volunteer nurse in Dr. Fe Del Mundo Medical Center is receiving allowance) and enjoying free food. LOL :]

Canvassing for a new phone online…

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Now that the world is going “cyber”… that every transaction can be made online and in the comforts of your homes, people now venture on buy and sell business online. is an online market place where you can find your next car, house, gadget, job or even business, you can also promote if you got house for sale or simply just anything. The great thing about is that you can access products from every part of the Philippines from Luzon to Visayas and Mindanao, just select the location you like.

Few days ago, my Nokia e71 got busted and now, I lost all my contacts and I really missed my phone, no wi-fi, no chitchats with friends…. just nothing, good thing my brother Jeric suggested to look for a new phone replacement online, i bought the idea and then I checked out and found what I’ve been looking for… Hopefully, my mum would approve :]

As they say, the easiest and cheapest way to promote your business is to invade the worldwide web and is one means of getting into it. As people cope up with the fast pacing society, going to malls and waiting for a long queue in line is a big no-no. I too want to use my time efficiently, and one way to maximize my time is to go for online shopping, finding what you want and be stress-free.

Another great thing about online shopping is that you can purchase things that are unique (coz I really hate to bump to other people who have the same clothes as mine), not only its is unique, you can bargain and make your own “tawad”…
