I am a robot for a day.

Waw. My last blog was on the 21st. Ehem. Another week had passed again. Haaay. In few days, August will be here. I am excited. Why? IDK.
I am under a 24-hour holter monitoring now. A lot of cables are attached on my chest and tummy area. I've got a lapel-like thing on my belt. I've been suffering with this gadget that makes me feel like a robot since yesterday noon. It feels so irritating because of the 500-meter tapes used to make it fixed to my body. Err. Good thing it's already 4:35AM. Ilang oras na lang isa-suffer ko!
Too bad because I wasn't able to fully monitor my heartbeat yesterday. I couldn't differentiate a simple heart beat from a palpitation anymore. Haha. It seemed like my heart beat was the same all throughout the day. The nurse handed me a diary booklet yesterday when I was in the hospital for me to record all the activities that would make a different sensation (like palpitation, chest pain, etc). Uhm, I felt good the whole day yesterday anyway. I think I don't have to force myself to feel something I really don't feel, right? :D
I've been having these exams since the 21st when I had my first checkup using my Maxicare card in Marikina Valley Medical Center. My doctor was Dr. Socrates Grecia. He's like Hayden Kho. But of course, Hayden is way better than my doctor. :P What I hated about him was he gave me a lot of medicines to take. Wasted more than 500 pesos for those medicines that I never liked to take. They're still here inside my bag. Complete. Err.
I requested for CBC, thyroid check and ECG. All the results were normal except for the ECG result. Based on the paper, I had a left posterior hemiblock
and right atrial enlargement
. It made me panic that's why I consulted to a cardiologist. He asked me to have another set of exams which included the Chest X-ray, 2-D Echo and this Holter Monitoring. The Chest X-Ray result was normal. Even if I had to repeat the x-ray twice because my lungs were too big for the tube that the doctor-slash-nurse had put on the machine. Hehe. I still have to wait for the results of the 2-D Echo and Holter. I hope it goes well. Yesterday, I knew I have cardiac arrhythmia
. Then I remembered Diether Ocampo. If I wasn't mistaken, that was the diagnosis of the doctors after he had seizure. I want this fixed. I don't want to feel more stressed and depressed. x_x
Last Sunday, I went to Megamall and Greenhills to accompany my dad and mom in buying tokens for his Indonesian guests. Then I bought two books in Powerbooks Megamall. Paulo Coelho's The Zahir
and Bob Ong's Kapitan Sino
. Yey. I got another 430-peso utang with my mom. :)) But it's okay. I've been craving for these books for a long time already. I have work and salary. And I had already finished reading Paulo Coelho's Brida
. So why won't I make myself happy? :] I'm loving reading books.♥
I already finished reading Kapitan Sino
in Monday morning while I was waiting for the sunrise. The story was fine. It was about a simple electronics repairman who became a superhero to his community. It wasn't very funny like his other books but it'd make you laugh. But the good thing about Bob Ong's books is that it makes us learn about reality by simply being on the reality. No sugarcoating.
I still haven't started reading The Zahir
. I'm planning to start reading it on Saturday when it's not queuing at work. :D
Yea. I met my boyfriend yesterday.♥
I left home at past 6PM with Acey. Supposed to be, we were going to meet at 4PM, but I overslept. Haha. I went straight to Antipolo after I got out from bed (HAHAHA) and went to this very big SM City Taytay. Our malling was very
tiring that I almost got my holter broken while I was pressing the button every now and then. Haha. Kiddin'. I didn't press the button even once. I'm dead. X_O But yea, the mall was really small. I think this mall was constructed for those who don't usually see malls in the city. HAHA. :o But it was all good because I was with him. He looked different. He had a new haircut which made him look more gwapo
. Haha. That's how much I missed him... :D Maybe this was a post celebration of our 7th monthsary. We didn't meet on that day. Hehe. Haaay. He was on leave yesterday that's why we were able to meet. Will he be willing to go on leave every week just to see me? :P Hahaha.
Last Monday, June 2009 Nursing Board Exam results were released. I knew this from my workmates. That was the first thing I did when I came to the office. Haha. Good thing it wasn't queuing. Hehe. I scanned the list and checked on the names of my friends who had the exam. Then I saw She's name. Bartolo, Sherry Marie Gongora. Yeahba! I'm so proud of her. :] I remember she told me before that she didn't want anybody else to know that she already took the exam so no one would know if ever she failed. She was sooo pessimistic. Well, I have always believed in her powers. I know she could do it even before I saw her name on the list. Hmm, hmm, hmm. You know what, I once wanted to be a nurse. When I was in second year college. I thought of shifting from Computer Science to Nursing. Buti na lang hindi ko tinuloy. I knew I would never have a better future there. HAHA. Anwyay, congratulations Sherry, and to all the other new registered nurses out there! Cheers for you, guys! ^^
Was last week a recruitment week? I received three text messages from 3 different companies recruiting me. One of those companies was the SM Investments that I'd been waiting for to contact me since March. IDK. I applied for an IT-related position there. Hmm. Well, I hope I ain't wasting all the opportunities coming for the sake of having a good record
at eTelecare -- the first path I chose
If you only know how much I wanted to resign. This is not my dream job. This is not the career I planned to pursue. But it's here. It was my decision. Do I have to regret? Or should I just enjoy the job of being plastic
to effin' Americans and the salary I'm getting? I don't want to stay here longer. Contract ends on the last week of November. Still have ample time to think about my life
. All I want is to be a web designer/developer. Haaay. Life seems to be so complicated. What you want is not what you always get. But I know it has a purpose. Maybe God just wants me to learn things. That sleeping is not a thing to be taken for granted. Remember, when I was still not working in a call center, I always stayed up late even if I didn't have anything important to do. Maybe He just wants me to realize how important it is to sleep at night. Hahaha. Funny. God really has his own unique way of making us learn. Cool, God! Kaya mahal kita eh.♥
Pero since nandito na to, I have to adjust, to adapt myself to the situation that I chose to be in. I'll get more used to it. Soon. Time will come.
Call center agents are always stereotyped. Tsk, tsk. But I think being in the bandwagon is WAY BETTER than just staying at home, doing nothing with no money for shopping. :P
Don't do whatever you like. Instead, like whatever you do.
Makes sense, right?
I want to have a new contact lens.
On Sunday, my teammates and I will be having a bonding session somewhere in Ortigas after shift. Wala lang. Just to unwind. Since it's sweldo on Friday, let's waste money for relieving all the stress and pressure that our field of work has been causing us. Hahaha. :))
BTW, I got my new schedule for the next month. Well, it's the same schedule, 10PM-7AM. I just got new offs, Sunday and Wednesday this time. I think this will be better. Hindi bitin. Unlike my schedule this last three weeks, Sunday and Tuesday. Bitin.
I also want to get my hair curled. I already had consent from my family, boyfriend and friends. From myself? Still thinking. Hehe.
Have you heard the news yesterday about the fake flu vaccines? Gahd. The news said those 300-peso worth vaccines distributed to the clinics were possibly fake. My mom, dad and I had flu vaccines last June 13th in the office. It costed me 960 pesos for the three of us. Then that's fake? C'mon!!! I hate Jennifer Sandoval. Super.
If you only know how much I want to go back to college...
When can this laptop be formatted? I need a 120-GB disk drive for file storage. I don't want to lose all my files. Haay. I miss Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Sooo much. :'(
Gotta end this up. I'm really thinking about this holter monitoring. Am I doing the right thing? Hahaha! Whatever.
Ba-bye. It's 5:34AM. :D
When you encounter something, don't stop searching.
