I am a registered nurse but now my butt is planted in an office. I am currently working as patient placement coordinator. It is quite boring but at least I do not feel like skipping work just because I did not want to come to work. I do like this work although I am losing my nursing skills.

I am currently listening to the newest Stephen King novel – 11-22-63 (audiobook) narrated by Craig Wasson. So far, I am in Chapter 6 and its great. I am really liking this audiobook. Love listening instead of reading but I still like the novelty of reading it

how usa tax system works… Setyembre 15, 2008

Filed under: english alphabet,food for the thought,yada yada yada — nixinne @ 5:28 hapon

Our Tax System Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. The seventh would pay $7. The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until on day, the owner threw them a curve. “Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily bee r by $20.” Drinks for the ten now cost just $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share’? They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same percent, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so: The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings). The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings). The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings). The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings). The n inth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings). The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out of the $20,”declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,” but he got $10!” “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got TEN times more than I!” “That’s true!!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!” The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. B ut when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

 And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Bessy Abril 17, 2007

ChicoIt’s my bessy’s birthday today. I just want to wish him a Happy Birthday and a million more years to come. I also wanted to let everybody know how much he made my life easier just by being there to listen.. and helping me with blogging, getting me a laptop when i really needed it the most, lending me a shoulder to cry on whenever i have a heartache, setting up and organizing my gmail, helping my mom fix her computer even though i am seven hundred miles away, discussing my very shallow knowledge of philosophy, by helping me question the abstracts of life and by realizing my potentials…

There are a lot more things that he has done for me that i have not mentioned but am very thankful for…but most of all, i just wanted to thank him for being a very good friend that he is…

 

i will never ever forget that day that he wrote me a note that he considered me one of his best friends. It was a priviledge to be one of them. I will never ever forget him and he will always be in my heart and in my thoughts. I am honored that he chose me to be his “bessy”, i will treasure that till the end of time…

 

I just wish he’ll found the happiness and contentment that he wants, nothing less than he deserves…

 

He is one of a kind, generous, forgiving, patient, loyal, intelligent and a great friend, brother, cousin, nephew, etc to all those people he touched with his mind and heart. He has a heart of gold, a soul of truth and a mind of a true philosopher…

 

To CHICO…May you have a great birthday today and may you have many more years to come. please do not get tired of reading whatever you read everyday, it always makes you sound so smart…he he he! Do not stop blogging because you make a difference in this world with your words of wisdom. Please do not get tired of my nonsense dialogues with you especially if the topic is mike and my son. I thank you for being there for me all this time. I promise to be here for you whenever you need me. I really dont know what i would have done on those times that i came to you so i could cry nonstop because of a love that is lost and all the other things that cannot be described by words. Youre truly a special friend…I missed you so much (since we are several states apart) and do not forget that i love you!!! Take care always…

 

monotonous Abril 13, 2007

Filed under: bored posts,my immortal life,onli pinoy ken rid dis,yada yada yada — nixinne @ 6:12 hapon

Napaka-monotonous naman ng daily routine ko, lalo na pag may pasok sa trabaho. kain, tulog, gising, nood ng abs-cbn soaps, check ng e-mail, bayad ng sangkatambak na bayarin, at pumasok sa trabaho.

 At least hindi monotonous ang trabaho ko sa ER. Second day ko pa lang ng orientation pero binigyan na kaagad ako ng sarili kong assigned room. Juice ko day, buti na lang sanay ako sa mga chest pain emergencies sa cardiac observation unit dahil kung hindi, nanigas na ako sa kaiisip kung ginagawa ko bang mabuti ang trabaho ko. On the other side, at least they trust my judgement and my skills. okay na rin siguro yun.  

Siguro pag nakalipat na kami ng bahay ni Mike (maybe thsi Sunday), medyo magkakaroon ako ng ibang routine. Tagal naman, excited na ako…

Oops, kailangan ko nang bumalik sa higaan. Hindi na siguro ako makakatulog pero at least, maipapahinga ko ang aking katawan bago sumabak sa isa na namang kagila-gilalas na kabanata ng aking buhay sa emergency room! 

 

tula/poem Abril 12, 2007

wow nakakagawa rin pala ako gn tula…walang katuturan pero at least mukhang tula…i found this on one of my august 2003 entry…wala lang…masyado yata akong depressed during those times…

its one in the afternoon.
trying to clean up my messy room.
i look at the frames that surrounds me
and books that marvels me.
in front of the computer i sat all day.
thinking of what to do or what to say.
hard to imagine how life gets going.
without anybody to keep me laughing.
my room is an empty place
and so is my heart with an empty space
