yay! I guess time flies really quick huh? in less than 3 weeks I'll be celebrating my 23rd Birthday and I still feel like I'm only 19 lol Well today was my first day as a NURSE. Maybe some would think it's not a big deal but for me? Hell yeah! it wasn't easy to go this far... at least not for me. Going to school 20 years of your life? then after that 2 years of struggling to get my license to practice what I went to college for then after that non stop applying for a job and finally landed one! I pushed myself to be patient, patient enough to wait, fail, try again, struggle... be positive and stay positive in anything that comes across my way...

For some of my batch mates, it was quick, some still struggling, others lost faith, some still waiting and there are those I have most my respect, the "Non-quitters" this are the people who failed but never quit. I have my out-most respect for them because no matter how hopeless the situation is, they look for something to hold on to and tell themselves, "I worked hard for it, struggled, felt horrible, got depressed, but I deserve that feeling! the feeling of success, the unexplainable happiness, the rush, the feeling that you're the happiest person in the world the excited feeling to tell your parents or loved ones: This is what we worked hard for, now I am going to share it with you. I hope I made you proud." (Trust me, you want to experience that feeling).

I am just very thankful I had a good trainer earlier, she was very very nice and patient to me... It made me feel 10x better and felt more confident by her being on my side and guiding me... she was always there to answer my questions and make me feel at ease.

I also respect those hardworking CNAs... without them helping us, our job would be miserable...

Well i don't have a lot more to say.. but I hope everything goes well for my whole nursing career and all those new nurses like me.
