es•cap•ism ( i-ska-piz-em) n. The tendency to escape from daily reality or routine by indulging in daydreaming, fantasy, or entertainment.

Nursing and care-giving; this are to date, the hottest school curriculum being offered. And why is that? --Because countries across the globe are in need of them; countries capable of giving them a higher salary, a bigger opportunity, a rich, old, senile, paralytic Canadian’s crap on their hands. I have nothing against them; being under a terrible system, I couldn’t blame nursing hopefuls why most of them want to leave this struggling country. It’s so surprising that even doctors already practicing their profession enroll on these courses.

What’s wrong with you guys?! Don’t give me answers like, “napapaka-praktikal lang ako” or “wala na kasing magyayari sa Pilipinas eh”. BULLSHIT! That’s the problem with our citizens. We are not as proud as Americans are to their country. We aren’t as patriotic, as supportive, as they are to America. I saw Americans crying as their anthem was being played. I could even bet all of my money that not half of us have our national anthem memorized. I would even sell my soul to the devil if a quarter of those people know the title of the anthem! Bayang magiliw? Ang mamatay ng dahi sayo? What’s wrong with us?! Let’s not look at country pride alone. Colonial Mentality. How many of us prefer imported goods over local? McDonalds whoops Jollibee’s big ass. Converse outsells Advan 1000 to 1. Let’s save the world form cavities with Colgate not B-E-A-M means smile. It’s always like that. We are killing our own industries. Yes, we know that local product are substandard compared to the products produced by the monster companies, but the less we patronize their stuff, the worse their product would be.

During the 60’s, our country was at its peak, its Golden Age. This was the time when everything was abundant, Philippines was placed next to Japan as the fastest growing country in the east. We were the envy of the elephant-strong Thailand, Malaysia and its sky scrapers and Hong Kong that was just selling chickens. Countries overseas send scholars here to learn our agricultural secrets, the real gold mine. This is where we should focus in order to be back on track again not in billiards, neither in basketball.

Change should begin within. There should be a radical change to make this happen but before all of that, we should first learn to embrace our nationality. This means no more American Dreams, no more kids who answer “my dream is to go abroad” in slum books, and yes, forget the dream of snow. If making NOYPI our new national anthem just to make it easier for us to memorize it, then let it be!

It has start somewhere
It has to start sometime
What better place than here
What better time than NOW!

magiging defensive na pala ako...

wala naman akong thing against nursing and i don't look at it as a lowly profession. in fact madami akong kamag-anak na nurse na nasa ibang bansa na. sinasabi ko lang na madami pang ibang paraan para umasenso. madami kasing kumukuha ng nursing just to go abroad. sila yung tinutukoy ko. ok? malinaw? comprendi?!?!?!?
