Dan Emmanuel R. Ventura, R.N.

That name means only one thing - I've successfully passed the Nurse Licensure Examination on November 29 and 30, 2009 and have the right to carry the RN signature at the back of my name meaning that i'm already a registered nurse.
With all the anxieties and apprehensions that have come my way, I can finally say that I am breathing deeply now without any stress and pressure. I am relieved and can finally sleep peacefully at nights. I thank God that he granted our prayers, and we will not stop praying, for it is for his greater Glory to continue to serve in his name.
Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. Without you, it would have been impossible. Thank you and God Bless!

We’ve gone through a lot more examinations before, and the board exam is just another 500 items. People tend to get nervous, experience sleepless nights, and palpitate when they think of the board exam. It’s just a normal feeling but me, myself also experience this. I get heartaches more often but still manageable.The Caritas Christi is a batch more than capable of bringing bac…

Geeks vs. I.T professionals

Hey it's new year and this will be my first post for this year.

I think we have heard this story over and over again. Geeks here and there, and then come these so-called "IT pros". I'm not an IT pro but surely I'm a geek.

But what do you think? Are geeks any better than I.T pro's or vice versa? In my sense, they equally competent not just because IT pro's have been studying all these different technologies, and geeks don't?]

It's sometimes really annoying when an IT pro stands in front of you and tells you things you already know (if you're a geek) with all his pride and chin up. (Hehe). Not to boast around but I am knowledgeable about PC hardware and software troubleshooting. I'm fixing PC's sometimes for free (sometimes not if I need some cash hehe) and my friends are really satisfied with my work and then comes this one IT guy who says that they are barking at the wrong tree.

I know they have been studying about every single PC thingy b…
