Good morning!

It’s almost 5am(PH time), I had a very peaceful night shift(yaaaaaas!!!) and now I’m sleepy already. Huuu~ but as much as I want to sleep, I can’t coz I don’t want my mascara or eyeliner to smudge and cover my eyes, like 🐼, and I still have to attend our training in Makati at 9AM!! πŸ™ˆ zzz

There are times in my life that I want to be consistently productive and motivated whenever I go to work, hehe apart from always watching kdrama series or listening to k-music esp. if there’s heavy traffic, so I listen to inspirational or educational podcasts on Spotify or TED talks on Youtube just like yesterday.

Another “I-stumbled-on-YT-worth-sharing post”:

This is so trueeeee!!!! Huuuuu >< it’s not that we can’t make time to learn but it’s really because of our emotional baggage as our barriers.

If you still haven’t watched this video, you may click this link 20 HOURS !!!!!

Thanks for this Mr. Josh Kaufman! Hope I can succeed too (one language/skill at a time for 20 hours – at least 45 mins *100% focus* per day) ~ cheers to all learning junkies!!!

Always be grateful 🌷

Love,

Nj

I’m late again for 15 mins. πŸ˜… Arrived at 1:45PM in class, run fast as “we” can because we have a quiz before our class starts (buti na lang may nakasabay talaga ako na late rin, forgot her name huu pero tiga Antipolo siya|Hi, girl|, and sobrang coincidence lang na nakatabi ko siya sa pila ng jeep pa-pasig kahit iba na mga sinakyan ko para di ma-late, sabay lang talaga kami dumating sa bababaan namin(DepEd)!! Tas sabi niya, dumating na yung mga jeep pagkaalis ko raw sa pilaaaaa.. as in wowww grabe!!! Nainip kasi ako, ang tagal dumating ng jeep kaya nag-shuttle na lang ako, tapos sakay ng isa pang jeep. Mabilis sana ako makakarating pero yung timing talaga ng universe pag nagmamadali ka.. pupunuin pa yung shuttle at medyo trapik as always haist!!)

Nonetheless, we still made it! Thank you Lord!

β—‡

Today’s activities:

  • We handed over our 1st homework (#writingHangeul101)
  • Started our 1st ever quiz (15 items)
  • Learned new Korean words and phrases and rules in writing consonants
  • Noraebang time!!!! Tbh, I don’t want to volunteer and be the bibo kid again in class this time, but the universe made a way, “lahat ng naka-black shirt, kayo ang black team”. Saktong naka-black na naman po ako mumsh!! ~ Our teachers didn’t forced all those who wear black to join, but my new seatmates a.k.a latecomers na nasa front row pa (actually, sila pala yung laging nasa likod namin pag sa class), they pursuaded me to volunteer!! Thankfully, I enjoyed our game where we must fill in the blanks the song with correct lyrics, then if we got the right answer, the other team will sing the song for us. Out of 4 questions, I made 3 correct guesses!! “Think (When I saw you), Face (Ddu ddu ddu ddu), Red (Red flavor)” – Everyone had fun that they forgot to announce who won the game, but I think our team won coz we didn’t sing much 🀣 *thanks to my new seatmates and dongsaengs who cheered for me when I volunteered (again) ^^ “Go, Joy! Kaya mo yan” and “Go, Ate Joy”😊 #simplejoys

Spent less than 15 mins on Facebook today after a week of not checking it. Ugh. It’s aura draining most esp if you read posts related to politics and shaming people and my God. Wahh wrong move!! Not because that I don’t care about it, I care and it hurts, but I don’t want to meddle in between things I have no control of. Thinking about regrets of voting him will not bring any positivity in my life today. So I will let it Go and let God.

On the brighter side, one good takeaway after browsing my newsfeed is reading some graduation posts and board exam success stories of my ‘FB’ friends (congrats!!!) wherein they were really grateful to God for the ups and downs of their life and etc. God sees whenever you struggle / fail / pass, and conquer your battles. With God everything is possible. God will complete what He had begun. God will give you victory. He is indeed! 😊

β˜†

As much as I want to have a throwback story post and share how God has always been amazing in my life, student life, because it’s still June haha, our INLE month (June 2-3 2013 waaah five years ago!!!), I’ll do it on my own na lang. πŸ˜‰

β˜†

Let’s go back to work ~

Try to be more productive and aggressive towards your dream.

Cheer up, buttercup!

925 – Health card β­

Yey! Thank you Lord! + Regularization sooooon ~

I received my 1st ever HMO card yesterday night, though I really didn’t expect to have this early, like it’s only been 4 months hehe and I knew that the management told us before that I can have this after a year… But lo and behold, I got a health card already hehe. Thank you! 😊

β˜†β˜†β˜†

I’m not looking forward to get sick just because I got a hmo card. Actually, I think I’m at my best health condition so far, esp. since I started to control my food intake, prioritize exercise and sleep, drink more water, and drink ginger-turmeric tea(yep, tita as always haha). So honestly, I don’t know if I can really use this hehe (let’s see)

β˜†β˜†

Ayunnn wala lang, it’s just really nice to receive this benefit ha na mapapathrowback ka na lang rin..(ayan nagkwento na..) as a staff nurse before, kami yung nagtatanong sa mga patients, “may health card po?”, then if meron, kami yung magtatawag para mag-validate and etc.. Tas minsan dami mo ng ginagawa (patient care and all-around-nurse) tas ma-stress ka pa sa mga hmo card issues ng mga patients mo, tas kaw pa yung kukulitin ng mga agents nila habang nagccharting ka. Pero, ok rin ung mga ibang health card providers na may pa-teddy bear sa mga patients nila (awww), tas pag malaki ang macocover ng card sa hospital bills ni patient.. alam mo na.. may pakain – pa-cake/pizza/pancit si patient samin bago mag-discharge hehe. ** aww memoriessss + simple perks and joys of being a staff nurse (charot)

β˜†

Thanks again, AMCI!! β™‘

* I hope that all companies may start/continue to provide health card & benefits to their employees…

β˜†

Hi, Philippines!

Make your health your priority

Always be grateful 🌷

D-2 of Hangul Class ~

Arrived just on time *yey*

Had our lessons about:

  • Give thanks song in Korean ver.
  • Double vowels
  • Basic hangul words, how to read and write them
  • Seoul

__ Well, during our class (tbh) I kinda felt like I’m in an intermediate class already because my classmates are really goood in hangul!!!???

They can repeat and catch every new words that our teacher is saying..

While,

Me: wait.. teacher-nim could you repeat it? Huhhhhh.. whaaaattttt… and so on..(speaks shyly on my own)

But also me, the pa-bibo side of me, or talagang #braver2018year me, I joined the quiz bee for fun and asked my seatmates to join too, they were hesitant at first but they joined too. Hehe thank you!

I was chosen to be in the “black team” coz the color of our shirt/dress were the same, obviously. We’re three in the group, a guy (our leader) and a girl, which I don’t know their names hehe. Good thing, basic questions lang yung napunta samin like:

  • The capital of S. Korea – Seoul
  • Money in Korea – K. Won
  • Prime minister and President**
  • Traditional costume – Hanbok
  • Most popular wave in S.Korea – Halyu
  • National flower – mugunghwa
  • Traditional house – Hanok (gave this answer to the other team, my seatmates – then the teachers said I’m the traydor in my team hahaha lol)

Etc.

I thought my seatmates won the quiz bee, because yep, they’re good too, but unexpectedly, our group won 😊 *close fight, actually* nonetheless, we all got a prize for our participation hihi ☺

Collagen facial mask 🎁

It’s been a happy day to learn and gain new mutuals even though it rained really hard on my way home – that I was so soaked as in!! (Flashback to my basang sisiw moments during HS/college days – same – mapapakanta ka na lang ng I can make it through the rain ni Mariah while walking in the rain 🀣)

I still went home cheerfully coz I learned something new today, plus deep down my inner core, I’m proud of myself for pursuing to learn this language despite the shizzzy weather in Ph (sobrant init sa tanghali tas biglang lakas ng ulan sa hapon TT)

Thank you Lord for today! 😚😚😚😚

Always be grateful 🌷
