I'm proud of myself.
Last night when I stopped reviewing I found myself at page 208
of the thickest book I've attempted to read from cover to cover in my whole life. It's the book I'm reading for the NCLEX exam: Elsevier: Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN by Linda Silvestri.
the magical book: a must read for my fellow NCLEX reviwers
It does have 1264 pages
but atleast there's just about another thousand more pages to go right and roughly 57 chapters
more to read. Not bad. I'm doing good with my studying but I surely can do better. Slacker pa din ako as compared to some. I'm just not the studying type kahit dati pa ako yung tipong nakikinig ng maigi sa klase at hindi nag-aaral. I would only study for big exams like midterms, periodicals
and such. Pero here I am facing the biggest exam ever sa buhay ko that would either make or break my career at eto ako't nagsusumikap mag-aral. My batchmates back in the Philippines kung hindi bum eh nagwwork na mostly sa call center while waiting for the result of the local board exams. Sometimes naiinggit ako kasi sila may work na while ako still reviewing (by myself). It's as if feeling ko napag iwanan ako and sila they're having a blast and having the grandest time of their lives sa Pinas. But come to think of it, isn't that every BSN grad's dream is to go to the states and be able to work here? Well eto na ko! Walang kahirap hirap na nakarating sa Amerika. People would always tell me how lucky I am, lucky that I'm an immigrant with all its perks. Sure maswerte ako but I still think maswerte din ang mga taong nasa Pilipinas. Being here and being there has its ups and downs. It's a matter of perspective and it can be lonely here sometimes. But atleast I can already see my goal's end and just a wee bit more push would get me past the finish line. I could already taste the sweetness of victory
Malapit na kong maging RN!
