I have two very good examples on acting on impulse today.
This morning at around 10:30, my friend Rochel asked me if I was still interested in enrolling for the Korean language course at the UP Department of Linguistics. I said I’ve decided on it already, whether she was coming with me or not. So she said let’s do it. And then we crammed. I had work at 1pm. Took a quick bath, met at Ministop Espana and asked each other: any idea how to go to UP Diliman? Haha. We rode a cab since there was no way I wanted to be late for work. The time was 11:30. In the event that the cashier had lunch break at 12 noon and we didn’t make it, I would have left her there to settle the fees haha. But we did make it at 11:55 am. And we were officially enrolled. Classes start at May 18. Daebak!
I’ve been to UP Diliman thrice: the first was when my sister took the UPCAT, second when I applied for it, and the third was when I participated in a Fun Run. Yes the last one was not a joke but I did finish the 5k run/walkathon in one piece. I had absolutely no idea on how to get around the area. We left the cashier and rode a UP Ikot jeep again on impulse, and went down after 30 seconds hahaha! We then rode a jeep en route MRT, and when we reached Philcoa (I think), we decided again to ride an FX instead since it was a very hot afternoon. In the midst of waiting for an FX, we saw a big air conditioned bus going to Quiapo not knowing exactly its route and ran towards it for protection from the harsh UV rays. It proved to be a good idea. I was at the hospital at exactly 1pm.
I’ve been planning to take the HAAD-RN (Health Authority of Abu Dhabi) licensure exam for registered nurses, but never had the courage to register since recent exam passers have significantly dropped. Just a few seconds ago, I was chatting with friends on Facebook and the next minute, I was entering my credit card info to pay for the exam. Absolutely no idea how I ended up in Pearson Vue in a matter of seconds. Will not tell when I will be taking the exam. That was a quick $95.
Maybe, subconsciously, I wanted to be busy since I was done with my masters. So now I have to study Korean and Med Surg at the same time. Hurray.
