HAPPY LOVE MONTH!!!
Time is running so fast! How am I gonna tell you all the experiences I had after January 10? Hmm.. I 'm sorry for not updating. I really have no time to blog. Anyway, just wanna thank you for still visiting my blog, tagging and leaving a comment. They are all appreciated.
NO DATE on Valentine's Day?
February 14 is a Monday and it's a school day. Haha! At first, I don't feel like celebrating the V-day coz you know, I don't have a special someone. Yeah, yeah I know, I have a lot of friends whom I can celebrate it with, that's why our class planned something. Instead of doing the usual gift-giving during christmas, we will apply it this Valentine's. We agreed to give the one we picked from the drawlots, any kind of flower, chocolate and a card. Minimum budget is P50.00. Para yung mga walang significant other, hindi malungkot ang Valentine's Day niya. After class, since we are scheduled half-day, we will go straight to Gateway Mall and watch a movie. At least, we will not feel dateless. I'm just really glad I have friends like them.
1ST-EVER HOSPITAL DUTY
At last, I already had my first hospital duty.
Date - January 26
Time in - 5:45 AM
Venue - UERM Hospital
Time out - 12:00 PM
I was able to do bedbath and bedmaking (changing of linens, and pillow cases) to my 2 old patients. I feel fulfilled in a way coz I was able to help them satisfy their hygienic needs. I also had fun talking and mingling with my patient's family. They were all nice to me. I admit I'm afraid of "masusungit" patients. Luckily, the patients that were assigned to me were all nice and understanding.
Date - January 18-20
Venue - Bagong Nayon, Antipolo City
Objectives: To experience living in an actual community where we are not used to, to be able to interact with the people and to promote health.
It was fun and also fulfilling living there for 3 days and 2 nights, although it was really hard. We were 17 in the group (4 boys and the rest girls), we stayed in a small house with 2 rooms. We were asked to bring our own sleeping bag since there were no beds. We cooked our own food, limited to fish and vegetables only, we went to the market just to buy fish and vegetables. In terms of taking a bath, we had to go outside and pay P3.00 just to have a pail of water. Water conservation is really important in living in a community, lalo nang walang tubig dun, binibili pa! Hirap ng buhay dun, pero para sa mga pamilya dun, simple na yun, wala na silang hinihingi pa. (we got to interview some families living there) swerte nalang kung makakain din sila ng baboy o chicken. I just realized how lucky I am that I didn't get to experience the hard way of living.
