My Story

I bet you can make out how awkward I look. I'm not really a good model, that I know too well. Photo by Sarah.

Hello there! Thank you for visiting my blog. I might bore you with my profile. Most people don't find me exciting but I am not going to pretend to be some outgoing, super-friendly girl from the city. I am an introvert from a small town who have long since forgotten that she'd once loved to draw and paint.

Later on, I channeled my frustrations in art to something not that diverse. I came to love reading and writing because that's how I can express my feelings. I also love to take photos, only I don't have the proper equipment to support this interest.. I'm not that good in talking -- that, I am fully aware of. I love to watch movies, drink cappuccino, and spend time with my baby. Yes, I have a boyfriend. What? I'm twenty-something.

This is Prince, by the way. And I'm a woman. I consider myself as one since I am twenty-two anyway and pretty much more mature than other girls my age. Why Prince, you ask? I am not that girly so I don't want to be called Princess, which is my real name. I relate my birth name to a damsel in distress -- something that the fairy tale books usually suggest and something that I never want to become.

I am not new to blogging. I've had several personal blogs during the past years wherein I publish my monologues, personal viewpoints and self expressions. I had been this insecure, immature young lady in those blogs. My posts were marked by the harsh wisps of teenage life. With that said, I still can't promise that I would be more mature in this new blog.

Look, I'm not a model or something. We just shot this photo for fun. :) Photo by my friend Sarah.

I have always felt something different when I reached the age of 20. During my 20th birthday, I felt frightened and anxious because I know that the twenty-something is the age bracket wherein people need to strive their hardest. This is the decade that will determine almost 50 percent of what your career, future family, and success in later life will be like. I know that I need to work my hardest throughout this decade.

I'm not saying that I am not going to work hard when I reach 30 and onward. It's just that the decade of the twenty's is the time when a person is free from most responsibilities, at the peak of his or her independence, at the peak of his or her physical strength and enthusiasm. Those, I need to take advantage of. I want to be successful in life.

I have lots of plans in mind. I want to be an educator and later on a supervisor an ER nurse, an efficient paramedic, a writer, a graphic and website designer, a model mother, a proud wife, a successful business woman, a philanthropist... the list goes on.

I have lots of things that I want to accomplish in life but I'm not really sure if I will be able to achieve all of them in the future. I am only blessed with one lifetime to enjoy and I am determined to make the most of it. I believe that I have a good start for this decade, anyway.

As patterned to Erikson's psychosocial theory, I am fully aware that I haven't fully satisfied my trust and autonomy although I am fully aware that I performed well in the others. As for the intimacy stage, which marks the stage where I am today, I believe that I have already accomplished it. I don't have to worry about it anymore so with one check in the check list, I can focus on seeking and establishing my career now and be as productive as I can be.

My beloved boyfriend. He improved my life a great deal. :)

Currently, I am a registered midwife, a registered nurse, a certified medical transcriptionist, a licensed teacher, and an emergency medical technician - basic. I have also passed the civil service examination. I guess I am lucky. I didn't really study that much in all of them but I still made it. I'm not bragging about anything. Actually, I am remotely satisfied with my performance (mediocre) and with what I have already achieved. There are still so much to pursue.

I am currently enjoying learning. So. Freaking. Much. If only I could be a student forever -- minus the financial constraints, that is. Too bad can't

I have come to realize this one essential ability in order to have a more organized life plan: adapt to change. Embrace it. I was kinda scared going out there in the real world but it wasn't like I have any other choice but to deal with it. I can't be a student forever. So the earlier you adapt to the changes in your life, the earlier you'll make a move and the earlier you'll reach your goal.

Whatever will happen to me from day to day within this 20-something decade of my life, I will write them here, whatever they are. I am equally thrilled and anxious on what will happen to me within this decade. I can only hope for success and contentment.

So for now, I personally welcome you to my ten-year journey towards my dream. Witness my 10-year-strain.
