Time check, it’s 12:53am here in England. I know that I’m supposed to be sleeping, as usual, my sleeping time is around 2am (even when I’m in the Philippines). I know, I should change this sleeping attitude. But most of the time, ideas enter my mind during this hour. Anyway. . . Since the pandemic … Continue reading How Much Will It Cost Me To Be A Nurse In UK?
It has been six (6) months since I arrived here in the UK. All things are going well, so far, despite the Covid-19 virus, the lockdown, and other things that affiliated to the pandemic. I know that there are more nurses who are aiming of coming here in the UK and other foreign countries. I … Continue reading I Gave Up on Working Abroad… Almost!
I am from the Philippines and English is not our primary language, it is Tagalog or Filipino. English is the second spoken language here in the Philippines. About 63% of Filipinos speak English. However, most of us avoid talking to people in English, for example, talking to a foreigner. Some of us would smile and … Continue reading IELTS: It is just English, isn’t it?
Hi! I’m Leann Zyra Advincula Tardo, 34 years old, from Cotobato City, and a registered nurse for 12 years. Currently, I am unemployed because I have a pending employment in the UK.

On my previous post the other month, I suddenly decided to do a 30-day social media detox. Yes, I quit from all of my social media accounts. By doing so, what did I gain? What did I realize? And what was the feeling? I will answer everything in a few. But first, what were my … Continue reading The 30-Day Social Media Detox: WHAT I GAINED?
I am on the 19th day of social media detox (30-day challenge). Eleven (11) days left to search for the meaning of my life, the purpose of my life. (just kidding). I quit social media for the meantime because it consumed most of my hours to a never-ending scrolling. Most of the things I saw … Continue reading 30-DAY SOCMED DETOX: HABIT NUMBER 1
I have been working 8 to 16 hours a day for 5 days for 10 years and yet my bank account is empty. At some point in my life, that bank account had a value. It was not much, but enough to make myself believe that I have savings. A savings, that in truth, is … Continue reading DEBT: I Earn More Than I Need, Yet My Bank Account is Empty
I was on Facebook since 2008, Twitter since 2012, Instagram in 2013, Snapchat in 2018 and Tiktok early this year. And I will quit on all of them for 30 days. This might sound insane in an era where social media became part of people’s daily lives. So, what did I take to make this … Continue reading Quitting Social Media for 30 Days
Some people accepted challenges, especially on social media. Posting old photos, glow up photos, body transformations from pre-workout to post-workout and other challenges that the society can think of. During this quarantine period, a lot of things come into my mind to make myself more productive, organize things, etc. A few weeks ago, I took … Continue reading Self-Experiment: 30-day Challenges
Hi. I’m Leann, I’m 34 and unemployed. I have been unemployed for two (2) months now. I was a nurse in a government-owned hospital here in my city. A year ago, I tried my luck in having employment abroad. One agency in Metro Manila posted that certain hospitals in the UK are hiring overseas nurses. … Continue reading PHRN to UKRN: A Journey Interrupted
