It all started with “One Step at a Time” to just simply “danielJr”..

Thank you so much (you people!!) for being my virtual buddies through the entire season. I can’t believe its been 4 years already! which, by the way, qualifies me as a Senior blogger  🙂

-End of Season One-

note: I am not ending this blog. In fact, I will be continuing with my rants and posts with a new url. I feel that starting season two in a new url will help me come up with a lot of fresh new ideas and experiences to share 🙂

Im looking forward to my fifth, sixth, seventh year and so on with my new url..



just a thought :)

It is sad to know that some irate and in demand relatives of patients who dont even happen to be toxic are nurses themselves.. Please don’t act like that for honestly, you are just leaving a bad impression to the employed nurses (yes, thats us) . Please don’t “project” too hard as if you know every single thing that we do because yes, we may both have the same foundation and its a given but it’s a pitty that you might want to review the ethical foundation of our field. thank you 😛


please tick the one that suits you.

( ) a nurse from abroad, who is just overly – over the top about the ideal practice..

( ) a nurse who works from another hospital who is too itchy to let us know that you are also a working RN..

( ) or an unemployed RN who is slowly turning into a bitter gourd..

( ) or worse, a student nurse but already have the balls to bitch with a registered nurse. Oh come on.


The bottom line is, let’s act as a professional. 🙂

note: I am sorry for being too blunt (again). I am not stereotyping. I am more of reminding. There’s no harm in acting nice, were colleagues. Thank You.

An Open Confession.

I grew up listening to different genres of music. I can honestly say that I have a diverse range of taste and ear for songs. I listen to and sing pop, ballad, r&b.. I am a big fan of rock, hip hop,soul, blues and underground music as well. When I was in high school I became interested in listening to Spanish and to the music of other countries as well. Diverse indeed.

Come 2009, a pile of catchy songs caught my attention. I listen to a few, though I couldn’t understand a single word, there was something in the melody that made me want to listen to it over and over again.. I eventually opened myself to the world of kpop, Its not just a trend, not just a thing of today, but it is slowly becoming a popular culture with a captivating taste of new and innovative firsts in music.. Very pop but strongly unconventional.

Before, I usually just have a playlist according to the genre.. However, due to the recent change in my listening habit, I divided my playlist into two.. Two major playlist, one for General Music/English with its sub playlist for the genres and the other one well, for Korean.. Honestly, It was not an intentional move for me but I had to do it due to the rapidly increasing number of kpop songs on my player.. LOL


Please do not assume that I am a super die hard fan like a kpop cosplayer or something. Though I dont have anything against them, I’d like to define myself as someone who just deeply appreciates Korean pop culture. 🙂

Let’s Wrap Up 2010. High!! High!!

30 Dec

Stayed single almost the whole year?
– YES. Its not that bad. Really. Technically, I am a member of the so called SMP but It’s not a big deal.. Moreover, I am indeed a member of SMP, also known as Samahan ng Malulutong ang Pera. Getting rich and successful will always be my primary goal for now.. Besides, I have a very unconventional time table when it comes to my plans and goals.. Very unconventional, but definitely cool. Oh-10 is not a love year for me indeed 🙂

Were involved in something you’ll never forget?
– I encountered several meaningful incident particularly with my work.. It’s not easy, being a nurse. Many of you may find my repetitive statement about my profession very bleak, but it’s the truth. The good thing about it is that I love my job, so no matter how I get tired or whatever I feel.. I never came close to quiting or settling in a job out of the medical field. I experienced delivering a new born, seeing the beginning of a new life.. Titrating levophed, dopamine and dobutamine in order to prolong someones life. Declared Code blue and peformed CPR or even made a relative sign a do not resuscitate waiver, with all due respect with their decision. Its hard, but it also made me a lot stronger.

Did something you regret?
– I did some minor mistakes that I honestly cant even remember. I dont usually regret a decision in order for me to be able to move on easily 😉

2010: All about YOU

Did you change at all this year?

– It was never my intention to change but my nature of work served as a contributing factor. The volunteers and my workmates call me Sir, it has been my distinct mark.. When I work, I act very professional. However, they are also very well aware of my funny side 🙂

Did you own a car?
– We have a car but I dont drive. Well, thats one thing that Im planning to have time to learn on 2011.

Did you go on any vacations?
– Baguio.. I go there every year, but with different companions, 00 to 08 – with my family.. 09 – with my friends.. 10 – with my workmates.. I hope next year, I’ll be able to have a vacation in korea.. I am very fascinated with hallyu and their pop culture 🙂

Would you change anything about yourself now?
– There will always be a room for change.

– I always dye my hair, either brown or red-brown.

Yeah. I am. obvious naman diba. My post for oct 26 was not published. Promise, andaming unexpected happenings.. my laptop got a virus and until today, hindi ko pa din sya na papareformat. What a lame excuse pero ganun talaga e. Im hoping to return here soon with a LOT of stories to share. Yea, I’m inconsistent but at least Im just having a hard time with time management due to my chaotic, funny-roller coaster ride schedule. Its better than having a lot of time to blog but with nothing to rant. hehe. Ill be back. haha thats a promise. ( Ang ironic naman ng pagkaka-promise) LOL =))
