Audio Blog

Yes! Finally, after long hours of slaving in front of a hot monitor (hehehe) I'm finally able to load my first audio blog. Now I can indulge myself more in being lazy! Joke. Yeah, technology is so cool.

I can now post stuff anywhere and anytime, especially those enlightenment periods that really last short and I often forget to post.

Failure Is The Best Eye Opener

Life is truly ironic... First you get praised and is told that you will have a great nurse. This fills your head up and you really believe that you are good to the point that you think that you are the best, but then you forget one thing... humility.

But failure is a good reminder that you should always keep your feet on the ground and that you really should try your best all the time. It's an eye opener, a sort of reminder telling you that you're on the wrong path. Failures are really humbling situations that could be tagged as defining moments.

The last return demonstration (cleaning the wound and applying a sterile dressing) was a defining moment for me and it had awakened me back to my senses.

I may have failed, but I will not be a failure.

Assisting in a Pap Smear

Last November 30, I went down to Cagayan de Oro because I was one of the eight endorsed by our clinical instructor's to assist in the Pap Smear at the Mother's House (An extension of German Doctors). I was quite excited and I have to admit that I had a bit of hepatomegalee episode (enlargement of the liver or bukad atay/burst of ego). Yeah it really felt good to be recognized because of your skills (char!).

I really thought that I could really experience a pap smear procedure but it was unfortunate that not one patient showed up. But at least I was able to take one client's vital signs (which I think I did ok). It was very fun though! I had fun talking to my team mates and it was cool to be able to share things with them.

We weren't able to gain some experience but we still have some incentives... incentives that I can't talk about because it would be a breach of secrecy. Hehehe...

Hello World

I haven't been blogging lately. There can only be three reasons...

  1. I'm too busy.
  2. I'm lazy.
  3. I don't have anything worth blogging.
It's really more of the second reason... hehehe...

Anyway I really like reading other people's blog because it really gives me a glimpse of who they really are. It is really interesting. Anyway, I'll post a couple of things now.
