How Could I Not Remember

I just had a rough night in class. We had a chapter quiz and I was frustrated because I had 2 questions answered that I am not sure of. Oh gosh, I thought I was ready! I think too hard....not in the class...I think too hard on blogging!!


I went through my jewelry box this morning, and found my degree ring. It's been awhile since I saw and wear this ring. The last time I wore the ring, was when I left the Philippines...ahhmm..probably 4 years ago.

How could I not remember, this ring is very sentimental to me because it was one of my graduation presents(the biggest) from my parents. This is the second of the best rings I have in my life next to my wedding/engagement ring.
For me professional ring signifies respect. And that's one of the things I've earned when I was in the Philippines. I miss to wear this ring. Someday when I finish my degree in Nursing, I am planning to convert this into two in one professional ring. :) (ambisyosa) lol!
I've been going to school since 2007 (on/off from scratch) here in the US. Way to go! I am almost done with my AA degree. My degree in the Philippines is like zero equivalent here in the US. In my opinion. That is why I am trying my best and encourage myself to go back to school. Even though my mind is glued already on blog hopping/blogging. Thanks hon, I love that you've been so patient with me at all times. You know how much crazy I am.


  1. wow gosh di ako binigyan ng parents ko nyan =( actually first time ko lang nakita yang degree ring sa dahil may ikaw lol.. Nwei, same here, zero equilavent ang degree natapos ko sa pinas dito =( but still no plan of getting back to a japanese school lol.. enjoy ko muna ang pagiging housewifey lol.. goodluck sis, sana maging RN ka na rin dyan, 2 yrs lang yata (not sure though)

  2. Ay nah sweet Dhemz goodluck kaayo sa imo. My hubby is a second courser too sa nursing and i am pushing him to take the board exam. I have read that the federal government will need 25,000 nurses in the next three years. Unta maging full pledge RN ka na rin.

  3. nice.. your parents gave you a ring for graduation.. =D

  4. Goodluck tsang, im sure someday not for long you will finishe your nursing and land a well paid job here.

    You are one lucky gurl coz your banana sent you to school. Ako wala na pag asa ani, padayon na jd sa pagtaya ang mga kautukan. Mao bitaw nga mas ganahan balik pinas atleast didto maka apply pako balik. I have no plans of applying for teaching job dri kapoy ko maestra. Magpaka ulirang asawa/nanay/maid in other words TIG.... heheheeh

  10. Dhemz, yes - I can empathize with you regarding school. I remember those days when I was in school - frustration will take over you but don't give up. You will feel like things are not going your way along the road but definitely you will see the earned success you have worked for. Don't forget to have fun too :)

  11. maayo pa ka naa kay prof ring, i admire you for that kay kugihan man ka mao to ila ka nilang gihatagan gift; mahal ka nila kaayo :-); goodluck sa imong pag eskwela; unta maging RN ka na in the near future, dhemz; padayon ug patience ra gyud then ma realize nimo man na diay ka sa pag schooling.

    your parents and your husband must be proud of you! go girl! =)

  16. After you have reviewed thoroughly your review lessons, pray to the Holy Spirit that He will give you a spirit of wisdom, knowledge and understanding and surrender your tests to Him. He will remind you of the lessons you have studied. Our graduation ring is really very precious and full of wonderful memories. Too bad that the US did not recognize your degree here in the Philippines. It is to your credit that you are pursuing your studies there. The Lord will guide you in your worthy endeavor. Your studies and your family should command a higher priority from you than blogging. Thanks for the enjoyable post. God bless you always. BTW, I will be praying for your success in your schooling there.

  21. Hello Dhemz. It's been one of my dream to have a professional ring. I've finished my degree in business management in a small college in our town but as you've said, it's nothing here in the US. I have plans to go school and pursue my dream to become a civil engineer but I am doubtful kasi it is super expensive. I don't know how to drive and that's also one of the hindrances. I have a job right now, a full-time job but I only earn a minimum wage. Hindi talaga enough kasi I need to send money to my family twice a month. Haaayyyyy. I hope I can come up a fix decision as soon as possible before I will reach the age of 30.

    Buti payo, mayroong prof. ring. I admire you dhemz for being so persistent to go to school. take care always, ok?

  22. I gave myself a college ring sis hehehe, nakatago rin lang din.. Love your graduation pic!

    Ako nga may degree rin na di naman magagamit dyan sa Tate hehehe buti ka pa malapit na matapos, gusto ko rin sana magenroll pagbalik namin kaso si john tatapusin nya daw yung bachelor's nya kaya give way na lang ang sistah mong bakla hehehe.. Maybe pag uugod ugod na ako pwede na lol..
