Saturday 9: How's It Gonna Be

All the best from the Winter's family to yours!
See You next year...



Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Good News, Another Challenge!

Just this week, I was informed with something I considered a good news! Well, it's actually going to happen soon and I'm just counting the days left, and that is my so-called duty rotation. At least, it would be a wish being granted before the year 2010 ends.

I know this will be another great challenge for me and another series of adjustment to take.
I am keeping my fingers crossed and I hope I'd be guided in this path.

Sunday Stealing: The Ninja Meme: Part One


Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named CV Rick blog named Ninja Writer. It's 50 questions so we will do it in two parts. He stated that he grabbed it from Wry Catcher. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

I've Decided!

I thought of not doing this, but I've finally decided that I should send cards (at least) to a person who gave me the courage to be strong, and who taught me that life is not at all a bed of roses. I am greatly indebted with the way I've been molded to who I am now. If not because of the trials encountered with the person, I may not have been able to know the true meaning of acceptance and defeat.

Things may have turned out unexpectedly, but I've learned lessons the hard way!;)

Wednesday Wickedness: Jennifer Aniston

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Jennifer Aniston. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. “A relationship isn't going to make me survive. It's the cherry on top.”
What part of your life do you consider “the cherry on the top”? **family moments!*

2. “I almost resent the whole fashion thing. Good God- never wearing the same thing twice and all of those things. It's a pain in the ass.”
How much does fashion impact your life? **just a so so.. ;)

3. “I've gone for each type: the rough guy; the nerdy, sweet, lovable guy; and the slick guy. I don't really have a type. Men in general are a good thing.”
What’s your type? **Sweet and lovable perhaps.

4. “Once you figure out who you are and what you love about yourself, I think it all kinda falls into place.”
Do you still learn new things about yourself? **Yes.

5. “The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.”
Have you ever had your heart broken? If yes, how did you get over it? **Yes and I'm still trying to win back the friendship with a certain deadline though.

6. “There are no regrets in life, just lessons.”
What is the most recent “life lesson” that you have figured out? **That I need to let things happen as they are, and I should not worry much!

7. “Really try to follow what it is that you want to do and what your heart is telling you to do.”
Have you ever went against what your heart told you to do? **Yes.

8. “The ultimate is finding a place where you have no inhibitions, nothing to hide, where you can learn with one another.”
Do you have any inhibitions when you are in love with someone? **Uh huh.

9. “Life can be dramatic and funny all in the same day!”
What is something that happened recently in your life that you found extremely funny? **Can't think of a very recent one right now.

10. “The first time I kissed Brad my knees went weak - I literally lost my breath!”
Have you ever kissed someone and your knees went weak? **Not just yet hahaha!

My 2010

In a few more days, the year 2010 is about to end. As of this writing, I still keep on recalling how my 2010 has been. Well, it's never getting worst or it has never been that better though. I could still feel that I haven't achieved much this year, except for the fact that I got frequent family dates which I found so memorable all the time.

Generally, the year 2010 is just like any other in my entire life. There are some big events though that we're happening, however, it is during this year that I've been given some great challenges that I should say, have influenced me to be how I am now. This year I should say is very unforgettable! It is during this time in my entire life that I've been exposed to an environment which I really had a hard time in adjusting. I always feel like I'm a neophyte. I have great good colleagues and there's no doubt about it. However, I just got this very feeling of being deprived. I feel like I've been ripped off with some rights = the very reason that every moment spent in there is always a 'trying moment'. Well, it's never too late though. I tried to become submissive NOW to every concern I'm tasked to accomplish, if that's the only thing to find my heart at peace in there.

This year, I'm becoming less of a party-goer. I think I've outgrown that already. Friendships do remain and I still find time to bond with them. However, I am missing my Pedia family so much this year! *sighs*

When it comes to family matters, I'm glad we got to bond now frequently. Thanks to my Dad, a then disciplinarian-turned-a-very-cool-dad, who makes every effort to unite us all, along with my mom.

As the year ends, I only want to savor the good memories spent. For next year and to all the coming years, my major major wish is to have a 'peace of mind' in everything! I wanna live life like there's no tomorrow while doing the things I love to do, and of course with the people I love in my whole life.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

2011: A New Uniform Year For Us

It's almost been two years since we've been using our white uniform. We are told that the uniform we've been using will be good for two years. Oh my, how fast time flies! And next year? We'll be changing our uniforms again, and that would mean, another amount to be deducted from our pockets. Oh how I really wish nursing scrubs would be our next preferred uniform!

By the way, I've really wanted to have scrubs as our nurse uniform. I can't forget the time when I was obliged to instantly report for work and since I haven't laundered my uniform yet, I was told I could use my scrubs. And guess what? I felt really comfortable on it. It's hassle-free and you won't get afraid getting dirty on it. Even if I had gone busier at that time, I just felt so comfortable because of the scrubs I was wearing.

For now, I am still keeping my fingers crossed hoping that my hopes will be addressed upon. I mean, working with nursing scrubs could be easier plus the fact that it won't cost much owning pairs of it. I knew there are cheap scrubs out there.

Well, it's Christmas anyway and I hope this Christmas wish will be granted.
