Graduation Day

17 Apr

After 16 years of studying, finally, I am now a degree holder. I’m a proud alumna of Far Eastern University – Institute of Nursing.

April 12, 2011, tuesday, 12:00 noon, PICC, Pasay City, Metro, Manila.

One chapter of my life has ended. And I thank my family especially my mom, my friends and God for being with me and supporting me all the way. Now I have to face the new chapter of my life. New friends, new challenges ahead. Though I am not yet ready, I know God will help ME face it all. 🙂

Now here are some of my snapshots on my graduation day. 🙂


With Nicole. One of closest friends in our class and in FEU. we became friends when I invited her and her group of friends to go partying. I’ll definitely miss her. She’ll be going to US this year and will stay there for good. 😦


Meet AJ. My childhood friend. We’ve been friends for almost 16 years. Way my back in preparatory, he’s our salutatorian. Then we’re classmates again for 6 years in grade school, and he’s our batch valedictorian. In highschool, he’s also a valedictorian but at that time we studied from different schools. Then at college, we’re schoolmates again. and guess what, he graduated CUM LAUDE!!! I am so proud of him!


With Imogen. We call each other Labs. She’s also the first one to call me TONYANG. After that, it’s been my official nickname in our class.


And I am with our class pride, JOHN!!! He’s the only CUM LAUDE in our class. I’ve known him for 4 years. Though he couldn’t remember the time we first met. Hahaha. :))


Tantanan!! With Jorel!!! 🙂 Our first picture together!!! At least we had our picture taken before I left Manila. 🙂 I’m glad I met him. He’s been a good friend to me. 🙂



My best guy friend, *Patrick. I love him like a brother and also I love him more than a friend. I will always remember the times we’ve spent together. Our happy and sad moments. The times we had stupid quarrels. It’s just so sad that I wasn’t able to tell him how much I love him ’cause he has a girlfriend. 😦 Actually that’s fine with me as long as he’s happy with his relationship. I know that although he has a girlfriend, I will always be special to him. 🙂 Our last week together will always be remembered. And before we part ways, we hugged each other tightly as if there’s no tomorrow. The warmest hug I’ve ever received. I know our friendship will last FOREVER! 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS FEU – IN Batch 2011. Good luck to our upcoming BOARD EXAM. I know we can all make it!!! BRING BACK THE GLORY TO FAR EASTER UNIVERSITY. 🙂

Counting Down The Days

28 Mar

Our last month together. This blog is a compilation of pictures of me and my BSN123 family. I’m gonna miss them.


with Christian and John. We’ve been classmates for 7 semesters. I love these two guys so much. ❤


Group 89 with our favorite Nursing Audit proctor, Sir Jasfer! He’s not photogenic but he’s actually a cutie. Almost every girl in our institute has a crush on him. Hahaha. 😀


BSN123 at Angel’s Hills Retreat House. We don’t like the speakers of the retreat but we all love the idea that WE’RE TOGETHER: this’s a first in our class history!


with my seatmate Frances. We’ve been seatmates since our friend, Itosino, dropped out. I love this girl so much. And we love Itosino too.


One last picture with Lucky. Hahaha. FYI, he WAS my crush way back 2010. Hahaha. 😀


We called it “EPIC NIGHT”. This is our class celebration for this coming graduation. YEHEY! It’s just so sad that most of my classmates were not able to come. 😦 But we really enjoyed this day/night! P.S. Do you like our shirt?


Before LUCKY there was JAESON. He’s Jaeson. He’s my first crush in our classroom.


Marie. Marie. Marie. She’s my best friend in our classroom. I miss her and I love her soooo much. *big hug*


the LAST but not the LEAST. My favorite group in BSN123. GROUP 89! I will surely miss them especially we have so much UBE moments this last few weeks. We always have our “HULING KAIN” *last meal) that’s why we’re all FAT now. We always eat as if there’s no tomorrow. Although some say that our group doesn’t exist because of my quiet groupmates, I don’t care! I still love them. For me, there is no such group as 89A or 89B, just 89!

Counting down the days ’til graduation makes me happy and sad. Happy to finally finished college. Sad because me and my classmates need to part ways. The feeling is bittersweet. 😦

Well, whatever happens to us, I believe we will be all successful.
Instead of saying GOOD BYE to them, I’m going to say SEE YOU SOON!

This is not the END, it is only the START of a NEW BEGINNING.!

CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!!!!!

5 Years From Now

31 Jan

The clock is ticking. Graduation is coming. New life for us. New experiences and new challenges to over come.

I never see it coming. Living with my own after graduation. Leaving the safe corners of our classroom. Parting ways with the best people I’ve met in my life, my college friends.

Thinking about all of the bad things that happened to me way back from freshman year to first semester of senior year makes me happy because finally, after four years of hard work, I will be able to give my diploma to my Mom. No more stressful days and sleepless nights. No more exams, return demonstration, thesis, projects et cetera. Those are the things students don’t want in their life. We all want to get rid of those things. Those things only ruin our remaining days in college.

But also makes me sad. Really sad. Sometimes, it makes me wanna cry. My last two years in college are the best moments I have. I have the best section, the best group, the best friends in the whole wide universe. Graduating means, we have to part ways. We have to go back to our home. After graduation, no more sleep-over’s at friend’s house. No more out of towns. No more parties. No more manicure – pedicure. No more movie dates. No more dinners. No more drink-all-you-can marathon. No more DVD marathon. No more happiness with them. No more time with them. No more things we used to do.

It’s killing me. They are like my siblings. We’re like a one big happy family. Our section are inseparable. Now, we have to go to our own path, do we still have time for each other? Can we still do the things we used to do??

After 5 years, can they still remember our happy moments? Do we still have communication?

……Can they still remember me? 😦

My Dream Job

25 Jan

At the age of 19, I am now a fourth year college student. April is coming and that’s the time I’m going to get my diploma and tell the whole world, “Hey, I am no more a student! I am now a Nursing graduate!” And then at July, I’ll take the board exam and hopefully I’ll pass it so I can be a professional nurse.

After 4 years of hard work, sleepless nights, big eye bags, haggard days, happy-go-lucky moments, sleep-overs at friends’ house and crying times because of school, friends and love, I can’t believe I am going in front of a huge crowd getting my bachelor’s degree diploma. And in a few months, hopefully, I will get a job. But, you know what? I never imagine myself working in a hospital wearing white uniform and caring for people whom I don’t know. Well, I love taking take of people but nursing is not my dream job. It’s not my forte. And whenever I’m in the hospital, I don’t feel this is the right job for me. I am not happy.

Ever since a kid, Math is my favorite subject. My relatives always tell me, I’m the only Math Wizard in the family. Whenever I take IQ test, I’ve got superior grade in Math. That’s the reason why I tell myself I will become an accountant or an engineer. I set my mind with it. I imagine myself working in an office.

I was in third year high school when I told my mom I want to become an accountant. You want to know her response? She told me, “Anne, you can NEVER be a CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT.” I was speechless. Every night I cry because I thought she’s going to support me with everything. She, my own mother, is the one who take away my last hope of getting my dream job. Until now, it hurts me and it makes me cry whenever I remember that.

Whenever I take admission exam, I always put Accountancy as my first choice of course and Nursing as my second choice because that’s what my Mom wants. I got accepted in a prestigious university in Manila and I became a part-scholar. I was allowed to take whatever bachelor’s degree I want. I was ecstatic because I thought my mom will let me choose what course I want to take. Here comes the enrollment, we were at the registrar and the staff asked us what course I’m going to enroll. I was going to say Accountancy when my mom interrupted me and told the staff “NURSING.” Her decision for my future.

Four years, I thought I’m going to love this course but still, my heart is for Math. I still want to be an accountant. I still imagine myself working in an office not in a hospital. I foresee myself wearing corporate attire not white uniform. I’m in front of the computer and computing the credits and liabilities of the corporation and not computing the IV regulation of the patient.

I’m still thankful for my mom for supporting me financially with my studies but if she just let make my own decisions for my own future, maybe I am happy now. 😦

Highlights of 2010

There were so many things that happened to me last year. But the highlights of my 2010 were the ones that I did or went to for the first time. First time to go to a place, first time to drive, etc. etc.

We’re at Bianca’s place and it’s our first to go there. We’re also the first one whom she invited to their house. It’s a great pleasure. 🙂 At that time time she taught me and Krizzelle to drive.

That’s us, the BSN123 buddies. We went to Mall of Asia to celebrate Fifi’s 19th birthday. It’s not my unforgettable first but it was she who said that it’s her unforgettable first. It’s because, this was the first time she celebrated her birthday with us and her first time to dance on the dancefloor. She’s so happy. She’s a special friend to me that’s why I posted it. 🙂


(Nix, NIx’s friend, Dan, Me, Fifi, Effy, Darren, Erica, Kathleen)

(Anne, Anne)

Anne went to our house in Bataan for the first time. She’s also the first one I invited to stay in our house for vacation. I had so much fun while she stayed there. We had mani – pedi. We watched DVDs all night and we even decorated our Christmas tree. We went to Ukay Ukay and bought clothes. It’s also my first time to shopped there.

NOVEMBER

(Eva, Henrico, Gerald, Hazel, Angelica, Julie, Me, Ruth, Mary Anne, Brenty)

This is our group. We called ourselves MOCTAH-kada. This was our first bonding last year. We ate with our bare hands in Eastwood. We window – shopped and just fooled around. 🙂

DECEMBER

This MOST UNFORGETTABLE of all!!! THE HIGHLIGHT OF ALL MY HIGHLIGHTS LAST YEAR. Tantananan!!!!!

That’s me and my crush, LUCKY. It’s our first picture together. And I am so happy. Actually, I don’t remember that I have a picture with him. I’m drunk at that time. So I am surprised to see that we have our very own portrait. I like him soo much. Really. And I’m looking forward to have more pictures with him. Hahaha.

That’s all. ‘Til next time. 🙂
