Last Saturday, I had difficulty of swallowing, checking my dear tonsils in the mirror, dang! Severely swollen and look so red. Actually, I’m quite blessed enough not to see white coats around it, because that would mean there's PUS. Yay! Super gross! I know!
Sunday morning, I felt so exhausted. Checked my temperature. Oh la la! It’s 38C. I slept and chewing acetaminophen whole day. I had difficulty of sleeping and woke up early morning around 2am. I felt so hot, checked my temperature again. I AM LITERALLY HOT! It was 38.9C! my lips were so dry and I can feel my breath more effective than a heater. My Uni had 11-7 shift, so I'm home alone. I’m really thankful my Mum insisted to stay in our house to take care of me. (we live in a different house but in the same compound though).
Monday morning, we went to hospital for EENT check up. I would recommend you guys to go to physician’s clinic and not just in the Emergency Room because doctor’s who attend in ER are residents, not to belittle their ability but it is always better to consult an EXPERT.
So there I was, sitting at the doctor’s weird clinic. It was like I’m Hogwarts’ astronomy classroom. Yeap! I can see stars all over his clinic.To my surprise, the diagnosis was not just tonsillitis but PHARYNGITIS! Part of my throat behind the soft palate is inflamed. Antibiotics were prescribed for a week. (Expensive, yay!)
The next day, Tuesday, although I still have fever I forced my self to go to class. One, because staying at home makes me feel more ill. Second, we had a very good lecturer in Psychiatric Nursing. It’ll be a big lost on my part to miss his class. Surprised once again, it wasn’t only me who skipped class on Monday in fact, healthy I am. I was able to skip only a day. MORE THAN ¾ in the class were not feeling well. Most of the symptoms that my classmates experienced were fever, cough and colds. H1N1? Okay, here’s the theory. Someone from the class was infected by the virus yet did not consult a physician. Anyway, gradually we are getting better. ALL is WELL that ENDS WELL. Ayt! : )
Here’s a photo of healthy me! (using my friend's handy) The aftermath of my story is that I religiously take my Vitamins. I also do a little stretching and flexing those muscles every morning.
Yep, I was in the elevator in that photo using my friend’s handy. Would you believe I was trapped in the elevator TWICE this morning! How untimely, we had an exam and yes! I was late!
P.S. Finally, I was able to distinguish what’s my target grade for every exam. And for 2 consecutive examinations, I failed to meet my goal! Darn, it is only now that I realize the importance of 4 points! *disappointed*

I just find it weird because I always post the lyrics of the song as my status in Facebook way before Micheal Jackson died. @.@
I badly want to post the video sarah and otep made (with my photos in it) about poverty but dang! multiply won't allow me : l anyway, you can view the video by visiting Sarah Baldonado's multiply site.
Photo taken along the busy street near San Pedro Cathedral. Most street kids that I see have furious eyes but this trio is different.
For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .
As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
A Summer's Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man's Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya' Know
'Cause They Got Nowhere
That's Why I Want You To
I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change
I've Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It's Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They're Not
A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody's Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya' See
Cause They Got No Place
That's Why I'm Starting With
I confess that I haven't tried studying for review class' exam. No, not once! But still i pass. Now, I'm bothered. Will luck still be on my side during the actual board? So, it's too late for me to study for tomorrow's exam, it's late and my eyes are shunting by themselves. Henceforth, studying starts on Monday. Whether I'm depress with my cases or not. I must start studying na!

I found my old jot down notebook yesterday and found something I wrote 3 years ago.
It's frightening to act,
But if you want to get a life,
It is getting down and dirty in our review class and just to understand why our reviewer is speaking Greek, I promise to lessen the number of hours I spend with Facebook applications. I think I'm close to dying if that's the case. @_@ Idiot, I know! For goodness sake why do these games have opioid ingredients? Soooo Addictive!!!
I was hooked to Street Racing, Yoville, Vampire Wars, Mafia Wars, Fashion Wars and all the wars. (yeah, corny!) Holla back Ladies and Gents, here are the games that really made me an addict.
1...2...3...ahhhhh! how cute! probably that's your first reaction when you created your pet and saw it for the first time playing her skipping rope or ball. What makes this addictive? I don't know exactly either. Maybe because we can visit our friends house and drop some love or maybe because it's waste/stool/sh*t can turn into golden coins! How can that possibly happen? The man behind pet society is better than Einstein. Out of this world! :X
Another playfish application, Restaurant City People! My friends kept on talking about this game and felt like i'm the only one left not playing. So I tried and before i knew it..wooow, i'm addicted. This game is so fun because you can hire your friends as the chef, waiter or if your sarcastic...the cleaner of you restaurant. Must mention, you can name your our Restau! Mine's The Talon and yeap, it's taken from Smallville lah~.
And tan ta da dannnnn.... lastly which i'm currently so into. FARMTOWN baby. This game teaches you to be patient because you have to wait for 2-4 days (depends on the seed used) for your plants to grow. NoPe, you can't buy fertilizers in the market so there's no fast forward. My ultimate dream is to buy a mansion, but my schedule is getting harsh up until the end of this year so I've gotta shake it of be contented with white farm house. It looks like in smallville anyways, so no problemo amigos.
In relation to farming...here's a very interesting photo my Uni took. It says "pepper or chili". Hmm.. my Uni has pretty good taste.
To enhance my lame attempt to stop FB application addiction. I'm trying to persuade myself to agree with Julian Smith. Ever heard of "25 things I hate about Facebook."? or how 'bout happyslip's "Facebook Fever!"?

Mag 20 taong gulang na ako ngayon taon. Noong nasa elementaya pa ako, ang buong akala ko ay ang mga taong nasa edad na 20 pataas ay mga kapitapitagan na, yung tipong nakakaunawa na sa bagay bagay at magaling magadala ng buhay. Napagtanto ko na labis ang aking paghanga sa mga nakakatanda noon. Marmi akong akala na kaya nilang gawin, subalit. . ..
Ambisyoso kaming nasa gitna, dala dala pa kasi nami ang mga pangarap na aming binuo noong musmos pa lamang kami. Yoon kasi ang sa tingin namin ang magbibigay ng tunay na kaligayahan kapag natupad. Subalit, sa mga panahong ganito din kung saan dumarating na sa aming kamalayan na harapin ang totoong mundo. Dati rati ay naiinis ako sa patalastas sa telebisyon, “welcome to the real world graduates”. Ano daw? Ano nga ba ang pinagsasabi ng gumawa ng patalastas na iyon eh iisa lamang naman ang mundong ginagalawan natin. Ngayon, dahan dahan kong naiintindihan...Yung totoong mundo pala na tinutukoy ay hindi yung tulad ng kay
Kaya naman, sa panahong ito, hinaharap naming ang problema na kung saan kami patutungo. Kung ano ang gusto naming maging o kung ano ang dapat naming maging. Katulad ng problema ni Clark Kent bago sya naging Superman. Masakit sa ulong humanap ng paraan kung paano maglalakbay sa dalawang daan sa iisang pagkakataon o kung sa bandang dulo ba ay mag-aabot din ang mga daan. Hindi naman kasi simple ang mga bagay bagay ngayon. Maraming tao kaming nakakasalamuha na kailangan makitungo. Tulad ng mga taong nakakataas sa amin na kung minsan ay sa halip na tulungan kaming matuto ay pinapakalandakan pang magaling sila at tinatapak tapakan ang aming bilib sa sarili. Sabagay, may mas alam nga naman sila at kaya nilang gawin kaming katawa tawa. Naisip ko, na kapag ako’y tumanda at lumagay sa posisyon na kung saan sila ngayon, ay hindi ako tutulad sa kanila. Ngunit hindi ako nakaksigurado kung matutupad ko ang pangakong iyan. Nakakawili din naman kasi kung ikaw ang tinitingala, inaalala ko nalang ang tao na dati’y malapit sa akin. Wika pa niya, “…because I have the power” kasabay ang malakas na tawa. Ayokong maging katulad niya na parang halimaw na natutuwa sa konting kapangyarihan na taglay.
Kung hindi ka sumasang-ayon sa iyong mababasa, aba'y sa korte ka maghabla at kapag na patunayan na ako ang hangal...binibigyan kita ng karapatang batukan ako at nang matauhan.
Nabitin ka ba? hanggang sa susunod! ADIOS! *^^*
