#TheSW30 Day 12: Your proudest accomplishment

Day-12Hi! I am on day 12 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Your proudest accomplishment.

I am 27 years old by now and my proudest accomplishment was when I graduated Valedictorian in High School and Cum Laude in the Bachelor of Science of Nursing.

I have been accepted as well in the Master of Hospital Administration (MHA) program of the University of the Philippines Manila. But I was not able to finish my degree and I just had 34 units from the said program, because I failed Epidemiology and got a grade of 5.00. I was devastated but I know UP teaches their students as well on how to be resilient, though some times they might fail their students too. I have been blessed to have attended the MHA program of the university. I am blessed with the colleagues and the professors that I have met.

For God’s glory, I won’t back down. I know I have a wonderful future ahead of me because I have a great God. I am a depression fighter. Carry on Jaea! 🙂

#TheSW30 Day 11: Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date


Hi! I am on day 11 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date.

Well, I have been in to a lot of dates already, with my ex boyfriends and some of my friends; but my worst date was when I had to go to the movies with my ex boyfriend to watch a film which I have forgotten already. I was asleep the entire movie for I was so tired from duty and since my fourth ex boyfriend was a nursing student as well that time, we had difficulty blending in our schedule because he belongs in the other section. He also has duties as well in the hospital. Finding time is one of the most difficult part of being in a relationship especially when the both of you are busy with school requirements and family engagements. We were legal by the way, both of our families know that my fourth ex and I are in a relationship.

So, to compensate with the relationship that my ex and I had, most of our quality time spent together was at their house. His father would cook our food or his grandmother would buy food from the outside so we can eat while studying for the upcoming exams. We study exclusively together at their house. I helped him pass most of the exams by teaching him pharmacology and microbiology. We were on our third year that time.

Nonetheless, my funniest date was when I was invited by a friend to attend a valentine date at a church where I have been involved for three years as part of the music ministry from 2011 to 2013. That was the time when my fourth ex boyfriend broke up with me, year 2011. I was depressed during the college week and I was a fourth year graduating nursing student that time, filled with loads of requirements that needs to be passed. But I still went to the valentine date entitled “Keep Falling In Love”. My valentine date that time was a lot younger than me because there was a draw-lots of hearts and my other pair of heart was with a young boy named Matt. I really enjoyed that night. I found new friends, Christian friends.

I realized that when we give our heart’s broken pieces to the LORD, He is faithful to mend it all again. He will give us a new heart and a renewed right spirit within. Jesus can love us more than we could ever imagine. He knows how being rejected felt like and He knows what is inside of our hearts and minds even if we have not articulated them yet. He knows the past, the present and the future.
