Verbalizing of thoughts

posted by Aya Empeo at 03:44 0 comments Links to this post
There are certain things I have learned from my past relationship and one of them is verbalizing your thoughts and anger about your ex or even your friend. One of the best way to release your anger is to verbalize your feelings to a trusted friend, the one who is willing to listen. But releasing your anger and hatred about someone on a social network is a big NO. Yes, I admit I was once like that. I also bombarded my facebook, twitter and plurk and even my multiply account about people I hate, how I hate them. Especially when my ex-boyfriend broke up with me, I filled my social networks with hatred status about him, etc. But because of this experience I learned something from it. I learned that it's wrong to tell the people in FB or other social networking sites about how bad this guy, etc, and having a pleasure that people will know how bad he is. Where in fact you're the one who's the bad guy because you're ruining one's reputation to other people. Am I right? NANDA (North American Nursing Diagnosis Association) said Encourage verbalization of feelings, you know it's better to tell your best friend or even your parents how you feel about certain person and I'm sure after that you'll be feeling better and of course FORGIVE that person who made your life miserable.

One of the wonderful events God has made for us. God really surprises us in mysterious ways :)

Sorry for the messy photo because I don't have the right lens but still it's better to have a remembrance than nothing right?

Who should decide your future? You or your parents?

I have finished the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing last April 2010 and passed the Nursing Licensure Exam last July 2010. But deep inside me I never like BSN, I never dreamed to be a nurse. So now, you'll want to ask me why did I take nursing? I was forced by my parents to take this course. Yes, I' am one of the High school graduates of year 2006 who was forced to study BSN by their parents because nursing boomed and was in demand by that year. And another reason is that my mom was having a projection, she wants me to pursue her dream, yes it was her dream. Anyway, I finished BSN without any problems bu tI don't have any job today like the other bum RNs.

I remembered last five years ago, they promised me that they will allow me to take any course I like after I finish BSN. So I planned to take Medicine. I really want to be a doctor or a tour guide, and I' am serious with the tour guide thing. And because as time goes by, I enjoyed the duty as a nurse so I decided to take a course related to the course I have finished. By this month I'm going to take NMAT, an entrance exam for med students and do my best.

My parents are both police officers, and now my father is retired and wants me to be a police nurse. He wants that one of his child will follow his footsteps. And he wants me, his one and only daughter. I cried while he was telling this to me. I don't want to be a police, I don't even want to be a nurse. I'm not the only kid he has, he has two other sons. Why not ask them and they are guys, they are fitted to that course or job or whatsoever. I have enough following your dreams. I want to follow mine. I want to be successful because of my dream not following my parents'.

May God help me and guide me. I will give myself a deadline until December 2011, and if I don't pass, I mean have the grade that I should have. I'll continue the job that is related with my course.

New PC!

posted by Aya Empeo at 10:21 0 comments Links to this post
I just want to share my happiness for having a new PC set. Yes, we have a new set of PC and it took us eight hours fixing it, from 5pm to 1am. It was a family bonding and I had fun although my father shouts at us because he was a bit "atat" about everything. Anyway, I'm really happy about this new set and Windows 7 and we also installed wifi here at home :D That's all. Need to go I'm actually watching NBA Finals Game 3. Go Dallas Mavericks!

I ♥ Portraits

posted by Aya Empeo at 12:37 0 comments Links to this post
I fell in love with Photography when I was 16 years old, that time I was already a nature lover and a "Dora Explorer". Photography helped me to preserve and keep the memories I have from my journeys. I was still using a film camera by that time, just an ordinary film camera until my mom bought our first ever digital camera, a Sony P32. I enjoyed using that camera because you can easily erase the unwanted photos. And then two years after, I realized that I need to upgrade my camera into a Digital single-lens reflex camera or famously known as DSLR. After 3 years, I have my own DSLR. Anyway, that time I want to be a landscape photographer but as time flies I fell in love with Macro and Portrait Photography. Until now, I'm still in the process of practicing. Here are some of my works.

Non Portraits


Hope to have lots of shoot to come.

Beach Escapade

posted by Aya Empeo at 13:56 0 comments Links to this post
Last May 21, 2011, me and my friends went to Laiya, San Juan, Batangas to relax and enjoy the summer. Laiya was popular with its cheap and affordable accomodations and the sand there is white but not as fine and white as Boracay has.

It took us 3 hours from Metro Manila to get there. We stayed at Casa Remo and we rent a room that can accomodate 8-10 people and cost around 6,000php.

There were lots of activities you can enjoy there like snorkeling, banana boat, jet ski, boat ride and many more. We did snorkeling because most of my friends haven't tried snorkeling, we enjoyed floating in the water and watching fishes swimming around the corals. The snorkeling cost us 1,500php because the boat rental was 1,000 which can carry 9 persons and above and we rented
five snorkeling equipments, 100php per gear.
The beach.

So if you want to relax and want a cheap accommodation with white sand beach, try Laiya, its worth it.

I was busy studying for an exam. I'm sorry for not updating the site. So here, starting this June, I'll try to update the blog as often as I can. I also cleaned my links, removed some links that are not active anymore and links that remove me as their link. What else? Oh yes, I changed my blog layout, too lazy to make one so I borrowed one at blogskins.com.

Anyway, time flies so fast. I've been bum for one year and I can't never believe that I have survived! I need to find a job asap and earn some money. That's all. Need to blog hop and meet some new friends.
