Leaving on a Jet Plane

Today I went to the city to get all my papers done. I gave the secretary of the Dean of the College of Nursing at Xavier University (XU) a letter requesting for a recommendation letter stating that I was indeed a student in the College of Nursing and that I am eligible to enroll in a nursing program in another school.

Yup, you heard me right. I'm transferring to another school. But I'm not transferring to another school because I failed or anything and definitely not because I kicked out or I dislike XU. I'm transferring schools because my family and I are moving away to Canada this May. It's quite sad really that I won't be able to graduate as an Atenean nurse. But I'll always be an Atenean in my heart and in my actions... as I told my clinical instructor, at least I won't have to worry about being the cause of a non-100% passing rate on the PRC Nursing board exams.

My God, this is one big hell of a step for me and my family. I'm very scared but at the same time excited because I sure do want to travel and experience something new once in a while. It's not like moving to a new place is a daily happening right?

I will sure miss my friends, my clinical instructors, and of course my beloved school. I'm also quite concerned that I might have to go back to 1st year college because my subjects might not be credited, but this fear is allayed by the fact that an Ateneo school is widely known and recognized in the Philippines as well as in the international field. Oh well, if i do go back to 1st year that would be fine with me since I really want to study again because I'm afraid that I'm forgetting some of the concepts that I have learned.

I just hope that everything turns out for the best.
