*wide grins*

 Well, well... Haven't been here for quite sometime... Time for updates: =3

 First of... I resigned from my job as a customer service representative (about 2 weeks ago). Nah, it was not that bad a was actually an advantage in my POV. And no, I didn't resign because it was that bad... actually, it was a bit ... but then again... it was not hell. It did help pay a few bills here and there. I am thankful that I was able to get that job (with all that is happening in our economy these days... it is a blessing). The reason for my resignation was that I am determined to continue my profession as a nurse. So, in order for me to do that... I have to take another exam to be able to practice it in US of A (specifically... California). I am currently reviewing for the said exam... and here I am (hoping and praying) that I would pass that exam with flying colors... Perseverance don't fail me now. lolz  =3
Second, As I said awhile ago...I am currently reviewing for the exam. I know I can do it... *crosses pawfingers* I would prepare to the best of my abilities in a short amount of time (My exam is in mid - October... shudders). 
Third, I am doing my first ever commission ^^ ... They were supposed to be finished last June but then again... RL got me by my tail. I am gonna get these done before I leave hehehe... I would be in my happy place ( Los Altos, CA) by September 20... yay! 
Oh, btw... a friend of mine has this awesome scene shot and would like to know the details of that "show" (The What, Where, Why, When, Who and How of the said picture). I am gonna post the pic here ^^ in case somefur knows the details of the show... please tell me. And if possible, where can I find the said show.  I would appreciate the help ^^ thank you very much in advance:
That is all for now... Take care and stay safe!

Ice Breaker...

Hehe, Haven't updated this journal since February 2009.
Alright, here goes:

As per my major, learning new things (and maybe get back to them old things as well) is, for me, considered a duty to a this course, continuous education is very important. I am still reading a few notes here and there from time to time...I am also preparing myself to take another major exam (I feel that I seem to forget what I had read before...that they are not enough so to speak). My job occupies most of my time...almost every damn minute. And if one is observant with my current postage...I seem to be taking more time now than that of before. I don't draw much...well, I still do but I can't say they are post worthy XD I am having a good time still with my job but who knows how long this would last. I can't stay there forever and ignore my actual course, can I?

I took a small commission from a friend to occupy my time and in order to refresh my drawing/sketching skillz...(if I ever had one rofl)...or force me to make time for drawing at least (trades don't seem to work on making time since they tend to be just taps on my shoulder instead of whips, which I need). I don't get commissions that much so I am quite happy that someone DID ACTUALLY commish me. I had one before but we had a discussion that didn't go out that well so meh. Oh well, at least now I have one. Lolz...and I trust him ^^  Would not mind if I have a few more...I need them bucks.

Alright, time to break the drama...sort of. XD I do believe in having a good time when one is in his work area / zone...And I don't see anything wrong customizing it to your liking to enjoy working or at least have a nice workplace XD My "furriness" gets me that I edited my "phone" and added a few things to my station. A friend even gave me a cute name tag...with a BEAR on it  (those with eyes that go round and round) XD And surprising enough...most coworkers (team mates) are not that alarmed on seeing animal related things...well, they were asking a few questions though but not that big of a deal. And one even saw a sketch of mine lying on my desk that is semi suggestive (I was drawing while waiting for a call or so)...she was even interested (maybe cause she is also inclined with that doesn't bother her that much.)
Okay...a few examples of what I am talking about:


That is all for now...I'll be back to add a few more...
TC guys!


Sigh of Relief...*grins*

Brief Background:

I graduated last April 2008 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. After a few weeks, I left town to visit my relatives and few good friends in the US of A, particularly in have my vacation there at the same time. There was an unexpected extension of my stay in CA...I thought we would stay for 2 months but then it was prolonged progressively. The extension was not a problem at all since we were given maximum of 6 months (we only stayed there for 5 months). Needless to say that  I was not able to take the June Nursing Board Examination (Local...for 2008). My visit was alright, i to visit a few relatives and a few good friends as well...and not to mention meet an online buddy live and in furson ^^ (That's you Mr. Nievelion hehehe).
Anyway, I got back to the Philippines early October...started to review to get back on my feet. After a few weeks...I took the November Nursing Board Examination (Local...for 2008). I was not 100% sure about my answers but I had the feeling most of them are good enough.
January came...I cannot wait for the results of the board exam (specially the "not doing anything" part) So, I took a shot in finding me a job. I got rejected twice (long story) but then third time's the charm right? so i took another risk that same day (January 12, 2009)...I passed. Woof! What a feeling.

Alright, so now I just finished my basic and my product training for my work. I work as a call center agent (customer service representative) for a health insurance company based in USA (not mentioning it here unless asked *grins*). Anyway, I just graduated there last Saturday, February 21 of '09. I am happy ^^ On with them calls! hehe
That is not the good part just yet. I forgot to say the result of the nursing board exam. Well, the result came out last Friday, February 20 of '09 (out of 88, 649 board takers...only 39,455 passed). Guess what...I FAILED!!! o_O'...wait, that's not it...I PASSED!!! yeah...that's it...I PASSED the Nursing Board Examinations last November of '08. I can now officially place the R.N. (Registered Nurse) after my name. ^^ Oath taking would be in the first week of April. I can't wait. =3 I now have a job AND passed the Board God...seriously! He made it all happen. *sighs with relief* I plan on taking Psychiatric nursing after passing the NCLEX exam. I need to refresh my memory and what nots though. hehe baby (dog) had her own bundle of cute puppies. 5 more to add to the family.
Birthdate: February 14, 2009 - I know...Valentines day XD  ...and all guys. ^^

So far so good! hehe
That is all for now ^^ hope to hear from you guys soon =3
Take care and God Bless! Stay safe and Enjoy! yay!

I was browsing through youtube and came across with this movie entitled, "Junkers Come Here". I don't even know if this was the original title but that's what it said. It was really nice...I found it very interesting and not to mention Junkers is an adorable dog. At first I thought it was another typical dog adventure but then as the story unfolds...well, better watch it than hear it from me. hehe

For the Doggies out there =3

"oh well"


Well, so much for my previous journal. ^^'

Anyway, I went to San Francisco zoo today (got pushed around like a pinball from one place to another). The trip was not that much to talk about since it was a bit disappointing. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the said trip but heck...a lot of the zoo's featured presentations were Closed or canceled. There were few animals in there and they seem sad (cause most of them are alone). I felt uneasy so I headed home (did plan to stay at Ocean Beach but it was getting late). Got lost for a little while but I got to the train in time for departure. I plan on going to Fisherman's wharf next to see what changed over the years (don't know when but here's hoping.)

Oh, Kung Fu Panda Rawks! Saw the movie and I want to see it again...if possible. Topped a few movies on my list. Animation...Story...even those cliched kung fu jokes. I won't go into details so I won't spoil the story for those who weren't able to see it yet. lolz

take care y'all...laterz!


Gift for a good friend...a comic strip

First off...Greetings!
Belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all ^^

It is good to be back! hmm...well, I was out of town for two and a half weeks (went to my proivince for Christmas vacation). Though it was a little bit uncomfortable since not all of the family members (including close relatives) made it there. And that the place was under, no televisions, no radios, no furnitures and no computers! though they have electricity...that is as close as we can get. Furthermore, the computer shops are farther than I can imagine. Wow, the only entertainment we had was our discussions and stories plus the beach, of course...the weather made sure that we had least it was a bit cooperative on some occasions. I was able to do my take home assignments from school and most of the necessary paperworks that I needed to take care of are still under management.

Christmas was not that exciting for me last year and same goes for New Year...We just ate and ate...slept...talked a little bit...then ate again. What an acivity...there was no excitement anymore, unlike the previous holidays that we had. Maybe because my parents are not there...nope, they are occupied. Oh well...past is past, hopefully, This year would be a lot better than last year. 3 months to go till I graduate...YAY! Uhh, I was not able to watch the Golden Compass as I have said but still...I was able to watch a few movies that I wasn't able to watch before such as Barnyard, Iron man, A series of Street Fighter II and TMNT (Japanese version) hehe...still good.

Right...Last December, Kale Shadowwalker (a good friend) celebrated his birthday...and I found out that it was a little bit off already. I asked him what he wants as a gift...he then said that if I really wanted to, I can draw Kale and Gruff hugging. XD o'course I agreed though since I was going out of town, I won't be able to colour it and probably it would end up as a sketch. But then again, I thought that this is rather late and it would be a nice Christmas gift for him as well so I did a small comic for him. Moreover, Mr. Kyle T. encouraged me to sketch something come this short break (by whipping me...oh, uhhh...lolz, Thank you sir V. ^^). Okay, I was not able to do a lot of sketches but still, doing a comic is much more harder than I thought.

This would be my first comic...uhhh, well...first to be posted here. I am still trying to grasp the basics (ended up as a practice for me as well). Special Thanks to Mr. Ryuu Majin for assisting me in the making of this comic. And I looked at how awesome artists design their layouts...thanks, got a little bit of idea. ^^ A lot of fun, it sure is...and I ma do this again if I have an extensive "free time" at hand. Oh, and I would really appreciate any help in doing comic strips. Comments, suggestions and Critics are welcome.

Hugz can be DANGEROUS! lmao...

ROFL...the introduction seems a bit too long for a short comic strip...*chuckles and grins*

*blinks, chuckles then grins* lolz...just an update of my page ^^

Here is something I whipped out in between classes and after duty, which, by the way, are VERY unstable! (Last week, my shift was from 2 pm - 10 pm then it shifted this week, 10 pm - 6 am) ouch! Though at least the staff there are really very nice and accomodating. and yay! I made it to 4th year second semester...a very hard journey that would be prosperous after next year...hope I can make it all the way! ^^

Anyway, This is an art trade with an awesome artist and a very good buddy of mine, Mr. Dan The Bear ^^ lolz, I really hope he likes it...XD The theme he requested was Dan and Gruff swimming underwater (the red speedos was his decision as well ^^) I am not good in BG's though I will polish that as time pass by.

Deviant Art:

oh, and yeah...Dan said not to post this on FA for awhile and await his part of the trade, in the meantime...I'd post it here and on DA... ^^

Laterz guyz and stay safe y'all!

Okay...another test...lolz, and my goodness...never thought I'd have an Otter for a spirit guardian...I tried the test three times and The Otter appeared twice while The Wolf appeared once...wonder what that means... XP Anyway, got this again from Mr. Balt0 ^^'

The What is Your Spirit Animal Test

Your Score: The Otter

Here's your results! Your spirit animal has a Nobility ranking of 11 out of 18.

Your spirit animal is the otter. Playful, curious and fun animals, they are truly the start of what can be considered a noble creature. Otters are good at figuring things out, and make great friends. You are lucky to have one as a spirit animal. Otters are fairly rare as spirit animals.

***Wondering how this animal was chosen for you? These questions were carefully thought out to see how important you hold certain virtues such as: humanism, self-knowledge, rationalism, the love of freedom and other somewhat Hellenic ideals. Some of the questions were very subtle. Your score was then matched with an animal of corresponding nobility. However, you shouldn't think this was a right/wrong sort of test, but more of an idealistic values test. It's ok to not hold these values, you'll just get an animal spirit of lower stature if you do!***

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 59% on Nobility
