What Seems to be the Problem? (a sentiment)

Yesterday, I read an article about the DOLE secretary advising unemployed nurses (ahem) to take BPO jobs. I commend her for that. Over the years, the nursing population have seen big growth mainly because it is an in-demand opportunity abroad. It was only last year when the government took notice of how overpopulated we are.
DOH then made something up. The famed RN HEALS program. I would have applied if I was not discouraged by the "backer" system. It works this way: you need to have an aunt (or a mother, or a brother, or a family friend) way up the organizational chart so you would have more chances of being hired. The higher you know you "backer", the more chances of "winning".
I feel really sad about the silence of the Board of Nursing on this unemployment issue. Yes, they are raising the standards of the nursing profession in the country but as far as I know it, I haven't read an article (or watch something on the TV) from them. Well, except the ENTREPRENURSE (which they glorified in the July 2011 NLE) which I have no idea what is.

So, in the end, I am heeding the DOLE secretary's advise. Take a BPO job.
Thank you Ma'am Baldoz.

To The Days (A nostalgic enumeration)

When all else fails and everybody on Earth have turned their back on me, I just close my eyes and think back to the days when:

-I can tell my bestfriend how I feel because he's just a seat away.

-I just walk a few meters and get a glimpse of someone important.

-My biggest problem was how do I get rid of a pimple.

-I spend the night thinking about crazy things to do when the day comes.

-My dreams are several years away and yet they look much more achievable than they are today.

-"I'll wait for you" means I'll wait for someone at the school gate.

-I don't have to text my friends not because I don't have a phone but because they're always with me.

i HATED Muslims

Nine years ago, thousands of souls, dreams and faces perished. Nine years ago, I was shocked to see the news. Nine years ago, I started to hate Muslims.

I never realized that it was wrong to hate Muslims. Just because a group of them did the terrorist attacks doesn't mean that I gave to hate all of them.

I woke up one day thinking about peace, about a world without war, a world where people live as one. A world like a one BIG family. I thought that it won't be possible if this hate stays. I decided to let go of this hatred towards them. I'm glad I did that. I know a few muslims and they're great and friendly. The stigma that 9/11 put on me is already gone.

I wish we could all give peace a chance.

Jesus won't want hate on our hearts. He wants forgiveness in it.

Let's pray for the families of those who perished in the 9/11 attacks.
Have a nice day everyone!

I miss my Wesleyan classmates. Hey guys, where're our pictures from the first semester? I'm pretty sure we had hundreds. All I have now is this picture and those we took on our acquaintance party. Hmmmmm.

Oh, crap. Here I am again. I terribly miss you guys!
