But I believe good things happen everyday. I believe good things happen even when bad things happen. And I believe on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad. And that’s life, isn’t it?

In life, people always say that you’ll be fine for the future as long as you make yourself happy. That’s not very accurate. You’ll be successful in life if you make those around you happy.

Okaaay! Time for some monthly reviews. :)))

Started my new year with a four-day MURDEROUS PM SHIFTS (that means NONSTOP ADMISSIONS and OPDs), not the usual way to start the New Year, huh~. And sadly, those were the last four days of me being a TRAUMAtic Nurse. :))) Still, I will miss everyone (SPs, ER Staffs, and of course the ER****s). I will miss waking up early (kidding XD), the 12-hour shifting that feels like foreveeer, going on duty feeling/looking fresh then leaving the hospital with WHERE-ON-EARTH-HAVE-YOU-BEEN? look (hahah XD), laugh trips, corny jokes, food trips, fast-paced environment, taking picture whenever we get a chance, critics, and et cetera. Actually, there are alot of things to miss during my specialization training in the Emergency Room and I’m too preoccupied to enumerate them for you. :P

Sooo, yeah! A lot of amazing things happened to me this month! I celebrated my birthday this month which i got to spend with my friends (the fountain candle made my night ^_^)…

and had a taste of my FIRSTs (ate monster overload *NOMNOM*, witness Sky Lantern Lighting event and  ran after a jeepney LIKE A BOSS XD)

I get to spend ECSTATIC times with the greatest friends the world could ask for!

I’m-always-the-one-to blame days, misunderstandings, mood swings, endless food cravings, PMS (women’s monthly battle >.<), inconsistencies, I-don’t-know-what-to-do-anymore days, more mood swings, impatience, cough/colds, fever… down twists of life that make me realize to appreciate imperfections! ^____^

BTW, I got a very very very good deal with my EVER AMAZING SISTER! But I won’t go into details, it’s our little secret. hahah :D

And for the record, JANUARY has been pretty awesome! Cheers~!

Welcoming another year caused me to reflect about life, that life itself is ironic. It takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence. We never know what we&#8217;ve got till it&#8217;s gone. And in life we do things, some we wish we&#8217;d never done. But at the end of the day, it&#8217;s those experiences that shape us and make us who we are now. One thing I know for sure, that no matter what life throws at me, Papa Lord, my family and friends will always be there. I&#8217;m pretty blessed I have them! ♥

This got me, I just cried my eyes out! T_____T *tears*

Random Snapshots of my 2011 ✯◡✯

  • Random de-stressing moments with my awesome loooves! We do our never-ending chitchats, food trips, laugh trips, and those “only-we-can-do-it” trips. I miss them BIGTIME! I must see you all sooooon! 
 
  • 2-day Dapitan-Dakak trip with the Specialization Trainees and Jet2…
  • Fantasy Land! (still part of the Dapitan-Dakak trip)
  • Survived the heart-pounding 500 descending steps (and vice versa) of the so called winding staircase, just to get to Tinago falls.

  • After the long trek (that I thought will take us forever to finish.haha XD), I finally saw the breathtaking view of the literally hidden in a deep ravine, Tinago falls for the first time.

  • With some of the SP Trainees during our Code Blue simulation.

  • Presenting: The ER****S (p.s I can’t spell out the name because it’s a bit objectionable. hahaha XD). The coolest people you’ll ever meet and always in for some serious adventures!

  • Spent my Christmas 2011 with my high school girlfriends at Angela’s apartment, helped in sorting and repacking of relief goods for the typhoon Sendong victims.

…and the list goes on (got loads of photos but can’t post all of them). I can say it’s been an amazing year despite all those predicaments the came my way. ^_^

2011 Year-end Review

I started to think about everything that I did the whole year, what I accomplished, what I still have left to do, all the adventures I went through, all the memories made, all I have gained, and how much my life has changed in a twelve month period. 

The year is coming to a close and what can I say? What to say about a year that has brought so much sadness, so many changes, so many challenges and so many opportunities? If this year has done anything, it has shown me to appreciate the little things, the time I get to spend with my friends and family, small victories, but more than anything to realize how blessed I am. 

I must say, this is the time to retrospect on another year gone by, time to wish for certain moments to come back or certain ones to be forgotten; to somehow relive those times that seemed too good to be real and to quietly erase the ones that make the heart ache just a little.

And as I think back on the kind of year I’ve managed to have, I’m pretty much impressed by all of the pure and utter awesomeness that has come my way. From the exceptional people I’ve met and become close to, to the things I’ve somehow managed to accomplish, I’d say it’s been one of the best years I can remember in a looong time.

Well, my 2011 was pretty much like a roller coaster ride. So many ups and downs, twists and turns, but gladly, I made it because of the people who were able to tolerate my flaws and accepted me as I am. *smiles* I am very blessed to have these people around. But most importantly, I wouldn’t have survived this year if it weren’t for PAPA GOD. I thank Him for giving me another year to live and enjoy His creation. I may have not been at my best behavior, but I’m very thankful that He has forgiven me, and doesn’t fail to make me feel I am loved. ^_____^ I am looking forward to a very awesome 2012. People say the world is about to end, but that’s all up to God. We never really now when it’s going to end, so we just have to make the most out of what’s in front of us but never take advantage of anything or anyone.

CHEERS TO 2011~!

Year 2012… BRING IT ON~!

Life is never about the people who act true to my face, it is always about the people who remain true to my back.
