Looking forward to a great 2013 made me decide to create a bucketlist for the first time. Besides, having certain goals will inspire me to persevere more and avoid slacking. I don’t know how long it will take me to achieve all of them, but I’ll definitely have them done by the end of the year.
Finally get to be with my husband. Been praying for this for ages. Hopefully all the waiting and processing will pay off soon. I just miss my beau, and closing the distance will be one of the happiest moments ever!
Be a USRN (United States Registered Nurse andUber Sa Rich Na).Haha!! I didn’t study nursing for nothing. Earning for a living while helping others, caring for the weak, and making a difference in people’s lives is probably the best thing any person in a certain profession can experience. Well this goal certainly has sub-goals under it:
Achieve the required IELTS band scores by the Alaska Board of Nursing.
Pass the NCLEX-RN exam.
Land a job. That’s the next goal after the registration. And if I can get a part-time job to earn more, why not?
Learn how to drive. Because my hubby said so. It’s part of the “American life” daw. 😉
Be a good home cook. I’ve made my way to my husband’s heart. Got to work for his stomach too! ^_^ Well I know how to cook, I just wanna master its art.
Support my family, and my brother’s schooling next semester until he graduates. Once I get to work, I want to be able to help them with their finances. It’s about time that my parents li-low with all the hard works and start living their senior years a little more relaxed. I owe everything that I’ve become from them.
Hit the gym. Once everything’s stable, I’m going to enroll in a non-cardio weight-training program and get more muscle mass! I swear I’m not that happy looking at my thin frame in front of the mirror.
Gain weight! Gain weight! And gain more weight! Yun na yon!
Be healthier and avoid hospitalization. I probably am the sickliest nurse alive! I’d been admitted 2 times for the year 2010, twice as well during 2011 (once for a sinus surgery) and once last year (another surgery for my tonsils – you may want to read my whole experience here). So I better do well in taking care of myself if I don’t want to end up stateside broke! 🙂
Have at least $3,000 in our bank account before the year ends. I don’t know if it’s too small or what, but the idea is – there’s a money earned and saved. Our first year together’s gonna be tough, lots of adjustments and starters’ needs, but saving for the future’s still going to be one of our priorities. Taking baby steps for now. Who knows, we’ll already be leaping next year!
And for today’s blog-ender:
“I feel so blessed to have two supportive mothers – my real/biological Mama, and my mom-in-law. “Thank you” will never be enough to pay all the generosity you’ve showed and given me, most especially to my Mama, who has done a lot of sacrifices from the day I was conceived, until now that I’m already a wife. I wish I could fight back the tears whenever you give me pieces of advice especially regarding married life, because I get overly emotional everytime you remind me that I’m already a woman, telling me to be always strong not only for myself but now for my husband too, and that you will never ever get tired of guiding me in life, for as long as you’re still alive. Salamat po. I love you from the deepest chamber of my heart.” ^_^
No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother’s love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star. ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin
