In need of KISSpirin

I’m not really a sickly person, I believe I have a strong immunity because since Preparatory I rarely get sick, well except for dysmenorrhea but that is just the body’s reaction in most women.

You see since I was a kid, I never had to go to the clinic or be excused to go home early or even be absent because of sickness. I am freaking healthy kid, which bums me a lot!. Every kid wants to have a school-day vacation, most of my classmates have at least one day where they didn’t attend the class, you could see that in the report card; but sadly mine would be complete in attendance.

Now most would say that’s not a bad thing, just remember I was a kid and staying at home on a school day with your parents out of the house screams FREEDOM. You get to watch television the whole day, eat sweets and drink soda and whatever is in the fridge. And you only have the helper with you so you can actually do anything.

Anyway, although this stubborn body of mine wont budge during my elementary days, in High school it has fairly showed defeat in the form of dysmenorrhea; my number one enemy. This is the only thing that could make me weak, pale, and almost pass out. Now the thing I was craving in elementary, I got it during my High school, and that is to go to the clinic. (weird right?)

Every month I’ll be admitted in the clinic for at least 1-2 hours. I would have a warm compress on my tummy and a mefenamic. Good thing I was able to work my way out of those episodes during my college days, where I only get to sleep 3-4 hours a day and  especially now that I am working. I found out that exercise and physical exertion is a good way to prevent dysmenorrhea.( try it )

Going back,this 2014 is really bumming me out, first the new year cramps and body malaise, then finding out that there’s no such thing as prince charming and now, after moon-bathing I have fever; and its only January 8!.  What more is in store for me!?

So now with a mug of coffee (I love coffee) I gathered my citrus and took a paracetamol. I have a runny nose as well so I look like Rudolfa the red nose egghead, and as much as I would like to stay in bed and snuggle, I opted not to since snuggling with a pillow while your broken is not really therapeutic. I’d rather moon bathe again and bask in the evening cold winds while singing Paminsan Minsan by Richard Reynoso; but since my parents are here I got a mouthful of “what are you doing outside when you’re sick monologue”

nakooo >.<

Ma lovesick ako kailangan ko mag emote with the moon ( Ma I’m lovesick that’s why I have to be sentimental with the moon) hehe jk I didn’t say that, but I’d like to..

So I’m back here in my bed, writing this piece to bore you, listening to my friends story of debauchery in messenger and singing Can’t Take my Eyes off you by The Muse. Hmm maybe later I’ll pop an antihistamine so that I’ll get a shut-eye. hehe durugista? :))

Here’s to getting sick when you don’t want to. Hayyyyyy (sigh):(

Starting Fresh

 

Happy New Year to all of us! three days passed since we flipped our calendar and most of us are still in that hyped up mood. Most are actually eager to write down their resolutions, plans and their “How-to’s” for the coming months.
the how to get loose that holiday weight, how to get that promotion, blah blah hoopla.

Well congrats to the enthusiasm guys, although most are also in their post holiday blues ( bitin? ) and probably dreaming of lounging for several days. I just had to smirk and bit my tongue so I wouldn’t start my “I told you so” finger wave. :p

I guess everyone was just in a rush to have their vacation plans to pull through that they forgot the one most important thing to do… which is to have a vacation”. I.e relax, take a breather, simmer all the stress down to the last inch of your skin, take it slowly and relish life.

Everyone was in a hurry to go out for a night of debauchery, partey and gatherings that we forgot to recharge; Not just physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We need to regroup ourselves, think back on what we need to do and failed to do, what we set loose and what we gained, what we loved and what hurts us.

Did anyone count their blessings? have you said thanks to the people who mattered and helped you change to a better you? Have you done something that your body will thank you for it? Have you thank yourself and gave yourself a pat in the back for making it through 2013?

NO? not even a tiny bit.. eeny minny one?

Well, tomorrows a weekend it’s not too late to get in touch and go back to what matters, before we head out and plan the remaining 362 days of 2014; Cmon! its time to really start aFRESH.

Ending notes of my 2013 journal/planner

Its ALIVE!!

Its Alive!! wahahaha (evil laugh)

 

Yep, I have been planning to bring this site into life, and now I have finally gotten the strength and the right amount of focus to write something worthwhile here and not as a Bucket list blog.

I have been busy writing poems for a whole year, but with 2014 incoming I thought of tracing back to what I really love to do which is tell stories, or ramble aimlessly; I reckon another rambling site full of musings of a 20 something nurse will not hurt anyone right?

With that in mind, I have thought of grouping my stories into just 3 main categories

1. Nurses notes

2. Bucket List

3. Comments/Observations

 

I also got some nice photos as well, been learning the art of photography here ( thanks to youtube 😉 ) So like my header I promise this will be much more personal and each will be given the love and focus it all deserve.

hmm..Guess I covered everything, nothing  else to do other than  start it.

Lets Do it!
