Hey Nak, I'm about to go into a Cal state for the nursing program, I know that the next 5 years will be hard, but do you have any advice or words of wisdom?

Seek God first and wisdom will follow.

Find a loving community of people who aren’t stupid or self-destructive.

Don’t get discouraged if you fail your exams.  

Develop your own study method that works.

Don’t trip about how your classmates are doing.

Relax often and play League of Legends and World of Warcraft three to six hours daily (it worked for me).

"Reasons" Foreword

Lyrics inspired by- and dedicated to- my patients and to all those ill and afflicted who hold on to the true Hope that begins when life on Earth ends.

I’ve been employed as a Registered Nurse for about six months now and within that span of time I have learned so much.  Most importantly, I am learning about the true nature of Hope: how it is manifested and how it is affects us.  I’ve learned that hope could not be fully understood without having lost what is, sometimes, most important.  After all, what is hope without despair?  What purpose does hope serve without the existence of its very necessity?  I believe the ultimate demonstration of hope is through the sacrifice made by Christ on the cross for the sake of humanity: how the most important being in existence suffered for the purpose of allowing us to see what comes… after.  

I thought I understood what this meant.  Until I met her.  She was my patient.  I was her nurse.  She was dying and I couldn’t cope with that reality.  But instead, she took care of me; because of her faith, she had hope, joy, and gladness.  Though I understood in my mind, I understood not in my heart.  And it was that encounter that made me begin to realize that our hope for the now is our hope for the after.  Hope cannot exist without the future.  But true hope cannot exist without eternity.

"The reason I live is the reason you smile.
Help me to place in perspective the things I’ve forgotten.”
