I remember my first day in college…I was wearing my blue polo shirt…with my checkerd black and blue pants…my hair was really short …hahahaa…but I was pretty excited when I sat at the back of our class where everybody was looking at me annoyingly…hahaha…

College had been one of the best part of my life…I’ve met 2 wonderful bestfriends…Kuya Ruel Pascua and Karen Alviar…I’ve made really wonderful “barkada”..Ate Cang, Suzzette, Ethelyn, Vicky, Marlon and Arnel…Though we’ve had these close friends I’d still say I love all my college classmates( yup there’s no excemption)..

In college I’ve been introduced to the beauty of life…I’ve grown to fall in love with the beauty of Sigmund Freud’s theories…I’ve come to admire the passion of Florence Nightingale to care for people who needs physical assistance…I’ve loved how Mr. Ever Garcia Jr. talked about the heart and how we can prevent and protect ourselves from CHF…and I’ve been amazed with him taking about how we should care for our schizophrenic patients…I’ve really enjoyed Ma’am Jubilo’s class whenever she would introduce us to certain topics about the ethical values that we should have when we are dealing with a life and death situation…I’ve loved Mrs. Zambranos but I was so helpless in her class whereby we really had a hard time coping with the numerous pharmacologic drugs…their actions, contraindications, computation of drug dosage…and the like…How will I ever forget Mam Magpali’s drawing of the fallopian tube infront of us while she imparts the uniqueness of the female reproductive system….I can still remember how Mrs. Mayo taught us to be strategic with our health teachings…I bet my classmates will never forget those “saguidi-saguidi popo” days with mam Casem…The affiliation days made us realize how lucky we were to be endowed with a bountiful life…mam Wilma made us captain of our ships during our grandsocialization…Those ICU duties made us feel like responsible nurses monitoring the vital signs of our patients accurately, checking on the I and O’s of our patients’…Our ER duties made us realize how every minute counts…I really enjoyed having Mam Estella as my clinical instructor during those days…I’ve really really loved my nursery duty whereby I’ve experienced how it feels like to bathe, change the diaper of the baby and of course how feeding can be extraordinarily hard specially for the premature ones…I can still recall how Ate Ressy and I would sneak in to taste the milk formula for the babies…hahaha….My OR duties with mam Connie Bautista is the hardest…I have to admit craniotomy is one of the most interesting operations that I’ve seen but it was one of the longest as well…DR duties made me cry…everytime that a mother sees her child for the very first time made me shed some tears….Our ortho duties with sir Ireneo made us feel so helpless for our patients…but somehow it was fulfilling seeing them recover after a few weeks……

Somehow I miss college…The glamour, the spot light…and the true to life experiences nourished each and everyone of us…We owe our Alma Mater a lot…From girls to young ladies….From boys to young men…

What we are now is a gift from our Mentors, classmates and friends….
It’s nice to have these wonderful memories….It’s nice to keep in touch with old pals…Dada I really appreciate your calls…Kuya Ruel and She…thanx for your msgs….Karen I really love reading your emails……………………………………..
miss you all!!!
