10 Things LittleNars (Dianne) is THANKFUL OF…

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Since July 2009 (yes, after I passed the NLE), I’ve been meaning to make a blog post on the people, event, things that made me thankful for my life…I don’t know why I am finding it hard to write it. Anyway, In coordination with the National Thank You Day to be celebrated on October 20, 2009. Here is mine (trying my best).

10 Things LittleNars (Dianne) is THANKFUL OF..:

10. Destructors/Temptations/Pains
Well, Let’s say, you are one hell of a motivator for me. Enough said.

9. Little Angels
This goes to the random people who made my everyday as less stress and worry as possible. The person who washes and irons my uniforms and clothes, the jeepney driver who brought me safely to my destination, the owner of the canteen in which I ate frequently, the security guard for assisting me whenever I ask for directions etc., the person who offered me his seat at the LRT, my anonymous crush during the review (yeah, I didn’t got the chance to know his name. LOL), to those person who send text messages that made me smile and many more…

8. Technology
I never would have survived the stress and pressure that my academics and review proper brought me without the help of technology. Particularly the world wide web (blogging), which help me unload the most unbearable things, the TV series that I diligently follow and the music, which boost up my mood during travelling, sleeping and free time…

7. SMACC (St. Mary’s Academy of Caloocan City)
My High School Alma Mater, which helped me develop my comprehension and analytical skills. It reaaaally helped me a lot and I think, this has a big percentage that made me pass the 4 toxic years of BS in Nursing and most especially the Nursing Licensure Exam.

6. R.A GAPUZ Review Center
My Nursing Review Center (my mum’s choice though). Thank you for polishing my knowledge, skills, abilities and attitude as I take the Nursing Board Exam. Thank You for the tips and strategies you’ve given me. I also found new friends and made my stay there worthwhile.

5. Far Eastern University
My College Alma Mater, My training ground, my home. To the school, the administrators, the coordinators and my professors/clinical instructors… Thank you for teaching and leading me to the field that I have chosen— Nursing. Thank You for providing me the things that I need to be the great nurse that I envision it to be.

Punchline ng mga FEU TAMARAWS…

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Taga-FEU ka ba?

Kasi sabi ng puso ko….

TAMARAW na ibigin kita…:D

—-tamang banat ng mga taga-FEU… hahaha! (received this text message from Lyne…:])

Littlenars is now a full pledged NARS…:]

They say, Oath taking is the highlight of everything that you’ve been working hard on when you were still a student… It is your turning point… a portal to the world of “Professionals”

Many were called but few are chosen… As the cliché goes, indeed, we are the few chosen people, “SURVIVORS”. However, I don’t want to think it that way… Because I believe the REAL test is just about to commence…

dsc00033

Well… I had my oath taking… THE most awaited oath taking for nurses…

I and my friends… or colleagues I may say are so happy that our eyes glistened and faces glowed… Everyone looked “professional” in our gala uniforms…

dsc00023

Everyone is equipped with their cameras and posed their best smiles and wacky faces in every corner of the SMX Convention Center… (well, I am guilty with that…:p)

dsc00025

As the program begins, the irony of the event…. Here’s what we’re doing:

Taking pictures…

dsc00015

Chitchatting…
Sleeping…
Eating… (yes, we know it’s prohibited… but it’s a physiologic need… :P)

18082009161

Playing Nintendo DS

18082009153
Texting
Wi-fi-ing (if there’s a term… LOL)

When we were reciting our pledges… some were serious, some can’t follow what was being recited, some were laughing, some were taking pictures, some were feeling it… yes, feeling it…

And what did I do? I think I belong to the “some who can’t follow what was being recited” for some reasons that, I can’t see the screen and the leader was so fast… (yes, I am too lazy to read it from the souvenir program and on my other hand is my cam phone taking pictures…LOL!)

18082009156

I honestly didn’t pay attention except for the Florence Nightingale Pledge… (though we have tackled that in our lectures and review, I haven’t recited it for real… and so there…:])

Oh wait, one thing I will not forget was when each schools were recognized… FEU Nurses (that’s US) had the longest exposure since we were the biggest population, we had the loudest cheer… The emcee said that “We were enough to staff the hospitals in Manila…” then a loud cheer once again…

My mom, who is also a nurse, shared to me some bloopers as she was paying attention to the ceremony than almost all of the inductees that time…

“A PLEASANT GOOD MORNING TO ALL OF YOU…”

“OUR FIRST RANKER IS….”

“THE JUNE 2009 PASSERS, OUR HONORIST FOR TODAY…”

…..can’t see it? read it again…LOL!

After the event, SM Mall of Asia was flooded by white people, by white I mean, NURSES. Everyone so hungry, complaining of soooo many people, and rushing to the comfort rooms…

My mom and I ate for lunch, bought some stuffs than headed straight home… We were exhausted then I asked her, “Ma, Naiyak ka ba?” and she said… “Muntik na, nung kinukunan ko kayo ng picture… ang saya-saya niyo kasi ng mga friends mo eh…”

dsc00036

Indeed, we were all proud and overwhelmed. It’s like a reunion for we haven’t seen each other for so long plus it’s a big event for us because we are being inducted as a REGISTERED NURSE… We can legally affix the 2 precious letters we were dreaming of “R.N”.

Congratulations to all the FULL PLEDGED NURSES!!!
KUDOS.
GOD BLESS US ALL…

Dear BON and PRC…
As you might have read this blog post…
Please don’t revoke our license…
I come in peace…:]]

*down on my knees*

P.S is still not my thank you speech…:p

Top 5 things a BSN (Nursing) student do after Graduation… (Littlenars’ View)

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

graduation

5. BSN graduates haaaaaaaave a looooooong looooooonng nice SLEEP. Name it, they can beat it. hahah (Yes, we’ve been sleep deprived. LOL)

sleeping time

4. BSN graduates go out with friends to party, chill, swim… Whether out of town, bar, club or just a house party… (Of course, to celebrate and to make up with all those toxic times…)

outing

3. Girls grow their nails and paint it with LOUD colors… (A big NO-NO because long nails harbors microorganisms that can cause infection. Darn. LOL!)

nails

2. Guys grow their hair and beard or both… (They have to maintain a hair requirement— not touching their collars)

dsc00014

1. Girls have a total HAIR MAKEOVER. It may be a haircut, hair color, hair spa, hair rebond or all of the above… (Yes, our hair is on distress because it’s always in a bun. haha)

July 25: Rain of Blessings and of Tears…

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

I can clearly remember that day… The weather was the same as now…
It was raining… Cozy… Gloomy…

July 25, 2009

Everybody’s texting, checking the web and online whether it’s on Facebook, Friendster, Multiply or YM…

I put my fone away where I can’t see nor hear it… I was offline(which rarely happen)… Instead, I went to my room, watched Lost where I can be far from all the anxious, stressed, nervous and toxic people saying news that IT IS ALREADY OUT…

I fell asleep… I was exhausted…

Then, Something woke me up, around 9PM… (maybe it’s my gut…)
I went to the other room and checked on my fone…
There were 30+ messages about THE RESULTS…
Yes, THE RESULTS of the NURSING LICENSURE EXAM…
The long awaited has finally arrived…
As I’ve checked on it… There were 2 of my friends who congratulated me because I WAS ON THE LIST.

I PASSED.

My heart was pounding (heeey, I need Amniodarone.)… My hands are stone cold and I was starting to grasp for air…
I checked it for myself, looked for my name with my sister, Roxanne…
and there I WAS…

board

I jumped like it was New Year… I felt Christmas in July… I shouted like there was no tomorrow…

I PASSED!!!

I am a REGISTERED NURSE…

This is the greatest birthday gift that I’ve ever received… (since my birthday is on July 27)

My sister and I went nuts— or should I say… I WENT NUTS. Complete state of EUPHORIA
Mama wasn’t there with me for she and my brother went out for a swim… (She actually got angry for I didn’t come… she didn’t understand what I was feeling… I felt it coming and so I didn’t join them…)

I was practicing before breaking her the news… I was actually practicing “Ma, ginawa ko naman lahat ng makakaya ko… pero wala talaga eh… gagalingan ko na lang sa susunod na exam… hindi ko nakita yung name ko eh…”

Oh well… It backfired. She already knew because my tita already told her. Mama called me and she was CRYING… Yes, CRYING because of HAPPINESS…

THANK YOU GOD FOR THIS WONDERFUL GIFT…

The rain indeed poured out blessings for those who made it, while for most, as the rain was pouring hard, tears simultaneously ran down their faces and their loved ones and I believe you know why…

I was saddened too for some of my closest friends were not on the list… and though I know what therapeutic communication is, I don’t know how to comfort and console them…

This is not to brag… Cry until your eyes fall out but rest assured, there will be a greater glory for you… It is hard and painful, I know, but the fight is not yet over, it will only be over when you give up and if you did give up, that is when you call yourself a LOSER because you see, every after the rain is a rainbow, and at the end of the rainbow is always a pot of gold.

So, cheer up my friend…

This is where you learn and this is when you will know how many your true friends are. I may seem to be far and seem not to care… I hope you know that I was giving you your personal space until your ready. I hope you know that I am always here for you… Never did I cease to pray for our success and I’ll continue to pray for it…

There is always a reason for everything and why this had happened, let us just trust HIS plan…  There is nothing to be shy or afraid of, it is not the number of takes you made… it is on how you will be the great nurse GOD has planned you to be… Don’t punish yourself, instead, find strength in yourself as God has always believed in you. One thing that I’ve learned from one TV Series that I watch… “Never allow other people to tell you things that you CANNOT do…”. Look at it as one hell of a motivation and move on…(sounds cliche but its indeed true…)

Keep up the good fight. I know you can do it because you are a FIGHTER… you are a WINNER

You were not left out, you’re plane hasn’t come yet… as you know here in the Philippines, flights are always delayed… LOL!

As one of the television ad said… “Never say die, there is always another day…”

P.S
This is not my thank you speech, I would just like to give a big hug to my friends out there who…. (well, I can’t say it myself… *sigh*). This is what I say when we were texting/chatting…
