What do you see in the shadow? I see a ballerina striking a pose.

It's been raining cats and dogs over here the whole day. We brought our son to the doctor because he was complaining of a tummy ache. He hasn't been feeling good for few days now. Anyhow, the doctor did not give him any meds, she just told us that this kind of condition, you just have to wait till it's course is done. She told us to just keep him hydrated which we are doing already. I hope that you are having a nice weather on your side of the world.

This is the school where I graduated both my undergraduate and graduate degree. This is also the place where I work for five years before I migrated here in the States. Divine Word College of Legazpi is just one of the many schools that is being run/manage by SVD (Societas Virbi Divini) priests or Society of Divine Word. It's a Catholic school and a private one, I was able to attend this school because I got lucky to be admitted in their student assistance scholarship. Part of our tuition fee is free (21 units) and we have to pay for our miscellaneous fees.
But anyhow, when I visited it after several years of being away, the school looked different because it was newly painted. As a catholic school, every student is required to take 6 Theology subjects. The thing that I will never forget about Theology class is the way one of my professor abbreviate's Christ, Christian, or Christmas. He always wrote Xt for Christ, X-tian for Christian, and X-mas for Christmas. For me it was ok then because I can write it quickly when taking down notes but for some, they find it wrong to use X in exchange of Chri. What do you think? Do you write X-mas instead of writing Christmas?

If I am a nurse and I am single, I would prefer assignment of a travel nurse. You can do your job and travel as well, isn't that awesome? There are travel nursing companies like On Assignment that can help you find a job in any place that you want around the States. On Assignment is one of the leading travel nurse companies that really strive their best to find you the best job that would fit your needs. So if you want a life changing job being a travel nurse, you can trust them in finding you a good one.
It must be nice to be presented with an array of selection of travel rn jobs and then choose the one that you really want to go to and work. Over here in America, job opportunity is endless especially if you are in the medical related field of work. The demand for the job is high so you will never run out of job opportunity to apply to. Then, companies like On Assignment makes it easier for job seekers to find the right job that they want by providing them information and extra hands to look for a the right assignment.
How I wish that this kind of system is available in my home country, so that the skilled workers there don't have to leave the country and serve other people. right now, there are so many Filipinos that work overseas because the job opportunities in the Philippines is very scarce. It is also advantageous, salary-wise, because the salary you get in working 8 hours a day in the Philippines is very small compared to the hourly rate here in the States or in other country. I remember my monthly salary working in school back then is very small compared to what I earn working a home here. It stinks but its the reality!

We went at Petco's during our recent trip to Highland Hills in Wheeling WV. Pet stores are one alternative for the zoo to visit. During winter time, we see to it that the kids can still enjoy things by visiting establishments such as Cabela's and pet stores.
Mr. Burrito wants to have a guinea pig pet but we told him that when he is older enough to take care of it, he can have one.

After our happy moments with Santa, we decided to go to Cabela's as it was very close at the venue of the event. We first enjoyed the different kinds of fish and other water creatures that are are locally available in West Virginia.
I love this Longnose Gar as he was very still in the water. He seem not to care of what other fish were doing.
More photos coming up as we explore the huge place of Cabela's. During Winter where outdoor activities for the kids are very limited, Cabela's is a nice place to go.

When we were still living overseas, we often get the question of where we are from Virginia. We would always tell them that we are f...
