It was my second semester in nursing; the timer beeps after I put yellow pin on the heart of the cadaver I’m working when our professor in Anatomy suddenly called my attention and asks me this question.

“Since it’s your last item the question is, are you afraid to die Ms. Durana?” I responded, “As an ordinary human being, no sir.”

This article is full of dulls and wrong grammars as I expected from my last. I admit I don’t write well, what I need to do is to express everything, the least thing I communicate. So I’m giving a warn before I get started, I do not intend to hurt feelings nor disagree with other beliefs in this article. I have lots to argue but this is just some.

I see death as an event in human life that some person is afraid of. The only thing they’re escaping. The only thing they’re waiting. People are always people, not too much but too lack instead.

Seeing light that will lead you to the door of heaven. Final judgment they called no remaining choices. Are you in or rejected? Sinful ones

Face it or not, escape or meet it half way the end will be the same. Either you are in hell or welcome to heaven. Will you do things that will make you happy or remarkable or things that will satisfy your own self?

It’s like you get a death pardon two minutes late after or you got a good advice that you didn’t take. Stunning yet full of sarcasm, beautiful somehow ironic.

And here are my chosen things my bucket list two years ago:

Top 1: Believe in new beliefs

Meeting new people with high risk mental capacity, it is really good talking to them. Learning new things, knowing what word should be. If I could be a Pragmatist the world will be afraid of me. Thank you law students and to my argue buddy.

Top 2: Revolution for the country

Physically not an activist but mentally yes, for our poor country the only thing needed is a revolution. Wouldn’t it be nice if the new generation is the new leaders? Or the worst thing there will be a rise for the new government officials who are not solicitors.

Top 3: Establish a name

Everyone wants it. I don’t want my name to be as it, dreaming to be a medical doctor to help people bio areas is my goal. Or if not, this M.D brought me to purse a masters degree and Phd in several fields as well as to take law to be a public attorney. But they say, “there is no money for me” they way I think.

Top 4: Find a man that will break my silence

I do not prefer to search the good thing he came. Realizing I was in wrong course drained the juices in my brain. As I reach in my second year all I want to finish this and take up Pre-Med. No offense but my course is really boring, no new learning it’s just a repetition of whole thing. Thanks to my argue buddy my brain didn’t stop working, my medical vocabulary is still updated and lastly, we never stop argue for something around us.

Top 5: Climb and run with him for the rest of my life   

This is the last thing I want to do if I’m already dying. Climb in Mt. Pulag with the man that I will cherish forever and watch the sea of clouds until he realize I stop breathing.


Again, I gave a warning this is just a bucket list. Things you want to do to fulfill your life. Lists that would help you to learn, accept and move forward in life. Teaching not to regret but face the current situation.


Love and Loss


This is a subject requirement made by one of my classmate. I felt I was reading a novel made by one of the famous authors.

I have always loved the stars.

I watch them when I am lonely, I smile at them, talk to them and write about them. Weird as it seems but their wonder is that they are not only for scientists, but for all of us. Filling the night sky with their sparkling beauty.

I still remember it vividly, when our Earth Science teacher told us that “looking at the star is like looking at the past.” Many objects are millions of light years distant, meaning that what we see in the sky is from the distant past.

I wonder if I could turn back the time by just looking at the stars. But looking at them also smashes my heart into smithereens. Rewinding all of the unbearable memories, all of the screaming, the shouting, the fight, all of the confusion, a 7-year-old-me and the never ending silent cry.

I haven’t seen…

Where should I have been born?


What if you’ll have a chance to change something in your life, something that will make a big difference or something that will change your life and people around you? What would it be? If you would ask probably the place where I was born, I’m not saying that I don’t like where I am right now but just another “what if’s” that maybe could happen, maybe not, something I’m sure not just me but also you have thought of, maybe over a cup of coffee, while watching cables History or Discovery channel, or listening to your favorite international singer, funny but true, yes correct me if I’m wrong you also thought it right?

Me, I probably waPraguent to be born at Prague, “the crown of the world”, home of most of the best architectural gems and the greatest artists behind the; a place where nature and people live in resonance; a laidback atmosphere that every day is like a throwback; a modern city that has a preserved beauty that many people from around the world no matter what age, gender or religion still can appreciate; a place where you can took a picture then post it frameless with no filter on Instagram or Facebook. As a photographer, Prague is like a Mecca for me the city that I love to live at maybe a place to get married, a place to start a family and finish my goals in life. Prague the most picturesque and romantic place I’ve ever wanted to be, the packed streets of Old Town along with the New Town they called, the suburbs, castles, mountains, churches even the forests. Its breathtaking sceneries where I could be at in every weekend walking with my bag pack and camera taking photos. Sooner or later I will be there, with someone that I want to be with too for the rest of my life, be part of the neighbor who will appreciate and create memories with the city that I was hoping I have been born.

Keep your head up! Let the world hear you!
