Nurses Talk - Monthsary is the first special occasion you’ll ever experience in having a relationship, since there’s no weeksary, daysary, hoursary, and of course, there’s no secondsary. Do you still remember your first boyfriend/girlfriend? Seems like the days run just too slow before your most awaited first ever monthsary arrives. Excited and exhausted at the same time? You probably can’t stop thinking what would happen. Practicing what you’re going to do? Hmmn, sounds funny.
Well, monthsaries might not be given much attention, especially by those who are busy. Some may think of it as just a pretty simple occasion to be celebrated, and that, it doesn’t have any significant to a relationship at all. But, on the other hand, monthsary is still a quite important factor to be dealt with in having a love life.
Monthsaries come before any anniversary. Every single activity that you’ve done together with your loved one within those rolling days of your relationship is still worth remembering and celebrating, isn’t it? The rolling months emphasizes that your relationship is growing. It would also be so flattering if your partner would be able to remember the date when you committed yourself to one another; this is particular with the girls. They like to be remembered always. That is, if possible, the guy should think about nothing other than the girl. In short, girls are selfish. Selfish in a way that, they want to be the center of attraction of their guy in every single second that passes by. And in connection to this, girls would feel so sweet if her guy would remember their monthsary. It’s not necessary to buy any stuff, a simple but meaningful greetings will do.

Young teenagers probably won’t get this matter. All that matters for them right now is companionship. Having someone to hang out with is enough for them. Knowing the person more is not so important, what’s important is that they have the same interests. Some are not able to reach even a week together. It’s like; they’re not even giving attention to the idea if they’re really in love or what. So, we suppose, they’re not really into celebrating monthsaries at this point in time right? Maybe someday they’ll do.
            But above these all, it's still up to the couple if they would agree to celebrate their monthsaries or not. Some that already achieve their anniversary aren't celebrating their monthsaries anymore. Occasions really don't matter that much, what's important is the feelings that you have for each other.

Nurses Talk -Tattoo care is one important thing to consider when you are having some artworks on you body.  Many have suffered skin problems and health issues due to they don’t know how to take care their skin with ink on it.  It is not really difficult to take care your Tattooed skin, it is only a matter of discipline and proper hygienic procedures should be done to maintain your skin healthy and of course to keep that artwork stays forever.

Here are the most important things that you should put your mind before deciding to have a tattoo:

·         Before you get your skin tattooed you better have a good sleep and make sure you have a good meal before heading to the tattoo artist.  The reason why you have to do this is because it will take time for the artist to do some artworks on your skin so if you are hungry and the tattoo artist is busy then you have to hold that hunger or the design will be ruin.  Furthermore it is very tiring and stressful being on that chair waiting for the tattoo artist to finish his job.

·          You should not drink alcohol or take some aspirin before you going to the tattoo artist.  Alcohol and aspirin can cause thinning of your blood and of course you bleed more during the process.  

·         If you just got a new tattoo on your skin, it is still in the process of healing so you should avoid hot tubs, swimming pools and you must not soak in bathubs. It is advisable that you wait for your skin to get healed and your tattoo will become clearer and crisp.  Fresh tattooed skin is susceptible to infection and public pools and water are easy sources of bacteria.  Another thing soaking your tattooed skin can cause the scab to come off too soon, which can also hurt your new tattoo.

·         If you have a very long session you better bring someone to drive you home, it is natural that you get dizzy  and tired by the long period of lying and easing the pain from the process. 
One more thing if you have allergies or any history to skin problems or health issues, you better consult your doctor first.  If negative, make sure you are not allergic to latex, petroleum products because you will be smelling all these stuff during the tattoo session.

Taking Care of a Healing Tattoo

·         You should not pick at the scab on your new tattoo

·         You can shower with your tattoo.  But do not soak it too long, wash it gently with a mild, natural soap using just your fingertips. Rinse quickly and make sure when you dry off to pat (not brush/scrape) the tattooed area.
·         When you put ointment on it make sure it has no lanolin or petroleum jelly contents on your ointment, as these stuff can clog your pores and often contributed to the ink healing out.
·         You should put sunscreen on it, because it can cause skin irritation.
·         Always cover it with soft clothing and do not expose it to sunlight. Sunburn can destroy the colors of your tattoos.
Good luck and I hope you will have a wonderful tattoo on your body!

Nurses Talk -  Networking business is one of the hot issues in the Philippines, so many eager young people race each other to join this kind of business that promise you with this phrase - "We make you Rich!".   Business stuff is not new in the Philippines, when the country suffered more from poverty and when the prices of the common commodities rising so fast everyone thinks business.  That is why many Filipinos are trying to engage business in any way as long they could get a penny from it.  When Networking Businesses hit the country let's say 10 years ago, almost the entire country embraced it.  The promise of getting rich quicker was the motivational factor by most Filipinos at that time. I remembered my brother borrowed some money from me so that he could join the Forever Living Networking Business  luckily my mother convinced him to not continue his desire.  He could be one of those who were fooled by the promise of the Business and now regretting the loss of their investment.

So here is my question can Networking Business make you Rich?
I joined so many Networking businesses some of these businesses are online and some are the popular ones in the Philippines, but until now I am not rich but I gained some profits to sustain my daily needs.  My point is I strived so hard to get that promise but what ever I do; it will only earn me some pennies and not the income most Networkers promise me.  What went wrong?  I am no genius but I know about business, I studied it.  Networking Business is not a bad business but it is a business with no guarantees and if it has, its lifespan is limited for a number of years only.  Many Networkers were brainwashed by the trainings and seminars of their company.  So if you are there listening to their brainwashing programs sooner or later you will become a robot too, you will work hard to get your own downlines so that you can pay the money you've borrowed from joining that forsaken business. But the reality is you are not working for yourself, you are working for your uplines. In a networking business you must get two downlines (left and right) just one pair and then you will help your downline to get their own pairing too because every pairing you will earn something and that's the flow.  So, if you have so many pairings from your account that's how your profit grows.  If there is no more pairing happening on your account the next thing you do is to convince your downlines to maintain the purchasing of products so that you can get a commission from it.  So, if they don't patronize the company's product anymore --- your Cash flow stops!  Even if you are the first of that networking business with thousands of downlines still it is not a guarantee, because if nobody is patronizing your product anymore, it is 100% sure you get 0.  No wonder your uplines joined competing networking businesses behind your back. Well, anyways every company has its own networking strategies but what I am sharing you is the most common flow in every networking business.  So in order for you to get rich is to have a river of downlines and a witty mouth to keep telling them to buy the products.  

Now let’s talk about weakness of the Networking Businesses that eventually will bring you to the path of not getting rich at all.

  1. There is no more big fish to catch
Networking Business is trying to make short cuts on the culture of business enterprise, they never think about the flow of supply and demand in relation to their recruitment for downlines.  Hundreds of Networkers have recruited already all those people who can afford and witty, what’s left are those who can’t talk, jobless and poor personality skills.  So, let's say you have successfully recruited your clients next is ask your self, do they the skills you have in recruiting for their own?  To be able to become a successful businessman it requires dedication and skills, so you need to train them to talk like you and to have a focus towards the business like you.  Do you think they have the dedication? Will  you encourage  them to quit their jobs and focus on the networking business?  Think about it.

  1. Expensive Capital Investment
They said that networking business has the cheapest Investment?  If that is the case then why when you are inviting someone to join the business they keep saying," I can't afford, it's too expensive?"

  1. Expensive Product
They said that the product is cheaper than the ones in the department stores? That is definitely wrong; try to buy a vitamin capsule with the same content of that from networking business to a local pharmacy store you will know the difference.
  1. No Proper Product Marketing
They said that their products are good, said who? The ones who are telling you about the products are the brochures and that networker who is trying to recruit you.  Imagine, a networker who is not a doctor convinces you to buy his medicinal soap and food supplements would you believe him?

I experienced being recruited by a kid he introduced to me different kinds of food supplements. So, why would I listen to him? In the first place I could not trust the person who is not a health expert then talks a lot about about health stuff.

Another thing it has no media ads about the product such as tv and radio ads, so how will your potential clients know about the product and how can they trust the product? 

  1. Lack Professionalism
Business and professionalism goes together and work together.  If you are selling something you will entice the customer to the effectiveness of your product and services and not to deceive them by the promise of getting rich, because if that’s the case we are good as liars in our own company.  That is why they keep giving trainings more on the flow of the Networking and not more on the product effectiveness.

Now, I have shared you everything about the networking business so before you join you must re-think it over and over again.  I met three teens who were planning to join the business they joined all their savings to invest for the Networking business.  I told them everything I learned, I did not tell them not to invest but I was just telling them the weaknesses of the said business.  They are all nursing students, I asked them if you want to get rich, you better quit your nursing and start working on it.  I told them doing networking business as sidelines will bring you nothing, luckily they re-think their plans and now they are selling bags on facebook and to their classrooms.  They have utilized their savings in putting up a small buy and sale business and guess what? It works!  They never quit nursing, they never talk about getting rich, they never talk about downlines or uplines, but at their young age they know how to talk about the quality of their products because they love what they are selling.   That is business! To get rich is just a goal in every business, but the love of doing business is the path to obtain that goal and there is no shortcuts but only enjoyment of doing it.

Nurses Tour- Balicasag Island is one of the small islands in Bohol, Philippines.  The island is only 1.5 acre it is famous for its marine sanctuary, many tourists love to dive in Balicasag Island  because of its rich  marine life beneath the island.  Balicasag Island is a 30-45 minute boat ride from Alona Beach, Panglao Island in Bohol, Philippines.  Getting there  from Bohol will only cost you less than US$10 and trip will only take 20 minutes.  When we planned our tour in Balicasag I never hesitated to join, because I know we will not going to spend much from it.  There is a wonderful Balicasag Resort which will cost you $300 per night, and that is too much for regular folks like us, so we decided to stay in a small house where we spent our 3-day tour in Balicasag and that solved our problem for accommodation.  In Balicasag Island you can find small huts for rent which are owned by the locales and it cost you as small as $30 dollars per night only, plus you can cook your own food or they can cook for you. Is that great?  One thing for sure if you are in Balicasag Island always bring with you camera for the awesome scenic views that will cross your path and Snorkeling set, because it is not only the white sand you will love there but the corals and hundreds of colorful fish..Wow!

 Balicasag is a quick 30 minute boat ride from Alona Beach on Panglao Island. A small island with a rocky coast and strong currents during the winter months, it is one of the top snorkeling and scuba diving locations in the Visayan Islands. Currently there is only one resort on the island which has its own restaraunt. Although we did not stay over night we did enjoy a nice breakfast along the beach and a couple hours of snorkeling and shell collecting along the coral strewn beach.

 Right off the beach a few dozen meters is a steep shelf which is an excellent site for snorkeling. I think the fish were as curious of us as we were of them. Unfortunately, the water was a little choppy that day, but the water was still clear and you could see a whole new world just a few feet underneath us.

 Make your Summer enjoy with natures Beauty at Balicasag Island in Bohol Philippines.

Nurses Talk - There are many couples in these world preffered to have sex anytime and anywhere and forgetting the sanctity of sex. Making sex as part of their daily leisures. And all these happened because of Contraceptives, believing that AIDS can be avoided or controlled if all people who are making love or making lust can have it safely with contraceptives. Condom is one of the well-known conctraceptives, is it safe? Let's find out!
Experts tend to avoid the term 'safe sex' to refer to sex using the condom, because they acknowledge that it does not give 100per cent protection against the various sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
'Safer sex' is now the preferred term.
A Cochrane Review on health care concluded that, with consistent use, condoms are about 80 per cent effective in reducing the risk of HIV infection.
The June 2004 Bulletin of the World Health Organisation noted that with consistent use of the condom, the risk of contracting gonorrhoea was reduced by about 62per cent, and that for chlamydia infection, by only about 26per cent.
Such limited extent of risk reduction is far from being acceptable.
The effectiveness of the condom can be further compromised by the fact that condom breakage and slippage are not uncommon.
A study published in the May 2006 issue of the British Medical Journal revealed that condom slippage was experienced by up to 33per cent of the teens who had used these; and condom breakage, by up to 25 per cent.
Studies have also shown that teenagers are relatively poor users of contraceptives.
There are many reasons why some teens engage in risky sexual behaviour. These include factors such as peer pressure, negative influence of some mass media, poor self-esteem, and poor parent-child relationships.
These should be considered in the design of any sexuality programme that is aimed at our young. It is our duty to provide them with the correct information, so that they can make the right decisions for themselves.-Dr John Hui Keem Peng
"For people who are sexually active, condoms remain our best solution to reducing risks of acquiring sexually transmitted infections (if uninfected) or transmitting these infections (if infected). Despite some inconsistencies in the evidence, studies show that condoms are an effective physical barrier against passage of even the smallest sexually transmitted pathogens," wrote Markus Steiner and Willard Cates of Family Health International.
A recent meta-analysis revealed that condoms really decrease the risk of gonorrhea and chlamydia in both men and women, but also of the genital herpes and human papillomavirus infection, if correctly employed.Many are concerned that the condom use boosts unsafe sexual behavior, but a recent review has not confirmed this."Like any prevention tool (such as seat belts or airbags) condoms are not 100% effective," wrote the authors.Still, people should know that the condom fulfills its mission integrated in the ABC strategy: abstinence, being faithful to one partner, and condom use.Still, "a more comprehensive approach is needed. Condoms cannot be the definitive answer to sexually transmitted infection, because they provide insufficient protection against many common diseases. Intercourse generally involves skin to skin contact in the external genital area not covered by a condom. The main problem with condoms is that average people, particularly teenagers and young adults, do not use them consistently, regardless of knowledge or education," said Stephen Genuis from the University of Alberta. "Numerous large studies where concerted efforts to promote use of condoms has consistently failed to control rates of sexually transmitted infection -- even in countries with advanced sex education programs like Canada, Sweden, and Switzerland."Recent researches proved that changes in sexual behavior (less partners and casual sex, and less appeal to sex workers), rather than condom use, dropped the rate of STDs in countries like Thailand and Cambodia. About 70 % of the STDs around the world occur in teenagers and young adults. "Yet innumerable adolescents saturated with condom focused sex education end up contracting sexually transmitted infections. Although factual information should be included in any discussion of sexually transmitted infections, narrow condom focused initiatives should be replaced with comprehensive evidence-based programs," said Genuis.
So there you have it, best information to answer your question about the condoms. I suggest that you keep you virginity and have your sex when you have your honeymoon. Its very wonderful to have sex to a person you really love and truly respected.

Nurses Talk - Here is a shitty blog on how to end up a good relationship, but i suggest do not do it if you do not have the balls. And you still have the great feelings better not to it. But what about you are almost dead in feelings and believe on nothing anymore. Here is how:
  • First step: You better see you girlfriend or boyfriend in person, and tell your partner about you are breaking up with her or him for real. Doing this is appropriate, than expressing your decision on the phone or text messages, that would surely hurt the person more. 
  • Second Step: You better be strong when you think the relationship is already shaky.  Expect that worst scenarios could possibly come and you better have strength to face it. Plan a few points to cover so that your girlfriend or boyfriend understands everything you are trying to communicate.  It is also effective to take notes if you think it will add assistance to remember, but never read the notes during the actual break up.
  • Third Step: When you do say the words of breaking him or her make it sure in a private place so that your partner is free to cry or let go their emotions. Having a quite place is effective it will give a chance for your partner to express her or his anger without embarrassment. A break up is a hard thing even when both parties want it. There's no reason to make it harder by ending the relationship in a public place.
  • Fourth Step: Better that you keep communicating on everything to your partner regarding the reasons of breaking up, your  partner has the full rights to know.  Stay away from cliches that don't help the process. It is appropriate and healthy to tell the truth out of respect to your soon to be ex-girlfriend. This will help her learn from the relationship and to move on from it.
  • Fifth Step : You better answer all questions your partner will ask from you, this is will give her understanding, which then would give her acceptance. If there aren't particularly hard feelings, you both might want to set up rules about a future friendship. If there are hard feelings,better settle things out, because if not unsettled feelings can cause trouble in your future relationships. Any items left at each other's homes should be accounted for as well as any items owned jointly.
When we are into great relationship breaking up is a stupid idea.  When you think that breaking up is only solution then before doing it, try to evaluate everything first if it is really worth.  Because it is very very sad to think of hurting someone and ourselves too.  Better we seek for positive things before giving up.
