Moving Up

“There’s a trick to the 'graceful exit.' It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.”

― Ellen Goodman

Telemetry Forever

i just feel sad. today, my original unit has been formally closed for operation. even though i was transferred to the coronary care unit, it is just sad to know that your original home is not there anymore.

to this, i would like to thank my unit for accepting me. for being kind to me for the past one year and three months that we were together. i never had a code blue or an icu transfer. you have led me to the people that i needed the most both professionally and as a person. you gave me the kindest preceptor and introduced me to my Besties. i was given the lessons of patience, of time management, of self-denial, of knowing when to fight and of knowing when to believe in the beauty of life.

thank you, Telemetry. you have forever changed me...

Of Sore Muscles and Goals

as i write this post, my muscles are sore from the first day of my swimming lessons. yay! it was fun. and challenging especially if my lack of coordination is being rubbed in my face. well, i may be too hard on myself. tomorrow is my second day and hopefully, i'll be less conscious of my body.

cheers for new adventures and for finally deciding to work on my goals.

and so i gave up. officially, i gave up on continuing school. for now, it is the best idea as i am focused on being better at work and setting my eyes on my ultimate goal.

it is hard as i realize that i have failed my professors after showing them what i can do. they had so much faith in me but the laziness in me took control.

however, i am trying to change that now. wish me luck.

we are now at the last part of the year and it feels that there is more for me to do and to accomplish. but then, i am so lazy i could not even
