NCLEX passer!

WOOHOOO! I made it! Had my Nursing Pinning on May 17, graduated from college on May 20. And officially passed the NCLEX, soon to be a Registered Nurse. At 20 years old, this are my proud accomplishments. Call me conceited, but all the struggles I've been through and conquered I think I have the right to be proud. All the hard work and discipline! All the temptations I defeated! God is good! I'm announcing it to myself and to whoever is reading this blog. I don't really care if I got readers or not but thanks and really I appreciate the time for those who take a moment and check out this blog. I haven't been posting some worthy posts as I've said I've been very busy and I haven't been inspired in awhile. But I'll keep on writing. Maybe not now lol as soon as I get inspired. Everything is looking good right now. Life is good! It's amazing how depressed I was before and now I look at everything positively. I credit it to the people and friends I never thought I would ever have again. And to this wonderful dude who I think really made me a changed person.

A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my bestfriend AYA in the Philippines! I miss you so much! We'll see each other again soon! Love you! GAROOPY forever!

Special shoutout to Zee, creator of the blog Music and more... thank you for still reading this blog! You're awesome! Enjoy your last week of school!

Playing right now: Walk On by U2

A special person sent this to me and it just made my day and got me going and persevering and so I'll end this post with this quote:

"Today remind yourself that nothing is too good to be true. Your great hopes can be realized. Your most wonderful dreams can come true. All that you really need, you can have. An incredible goodness is operating on your behalf. If you are living a paltry life, resolve to stop it today. Expect great things to happen. Confidently receive God's abundant blessings. Do not think of lack. Instead think prosperity, abundance, the best of everything. God wants to give you, his child, every good thing. Don't hinder his generosity."

A Tragic Loss

Clarence Clemons
January 11, 1942 - June 18, 2011

I'm speechless. I just read today The Boss's reaction to his stroke last week.  He was hopeful. Then when I checked my e-mail again later tonight saw the headline that Clemons has died. What a loss. You will be missed Mr. Clemons. May you rest in heavenly peace. Thanks for the music, your beautiful saxophone and your fans will miss you...hope you're rocking in heaven!

The Rolling Stones hint at anniversary tour

NEW YORK (Q104.3) 24 May 2011 - The Rolling Stones played their first-ever gig at London's Marquee Club on July 12, 1962, and Keith Richards says they might celebrate their upcoming 50th anniversary in a big way.

While promoting Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Richards revealed he and the boys have discussed releasing a new album and going on a world tour next year.

"Something's blowing in the wind," Richards told USA Today. "The idea's there. We kind of know we should do it, but nobody's put their finger on the moment yet. This is what we have to ask each other: Do we want to go out in a blaze of glory? We can, if Mick and Charlie (Watts) feel like I do, that we can still turn people on. We don't have to prove nothing anymore. I just love playing, and I miss the crowd."

Rolling Stones tours have always attracted huge crowds. Until recently, their Bigger Bang trek was the highest-grossing tour of all time, grossing $558 million. The record was recently broken by U2's 360 tour, which is still going on and is expected to gross $700 million.


Lost Bob Dylan interview reveals heroin addiction and suicidal thoughts

Happy 70th birthday to Bob Dylan!!!
May 24, 2011

NEW YORK (Q104.3) 23 May 2011 - A previously unheard interview with Bob Dylan appears to confirm longstanding rumors the music legend once battled a heroin addiction, and reveals the rocker once felt so low he considered suicide.
Tapes of the folk-rocker talking to his music critic friend Robert Shelton during a plane journey in the 1960s have been obtained by Britain's BBC and during the chat, the "Blowin' in the Wind" hitmaker is heard talking about his brush with drugs.

Dylan purportedly tells Shelton, "I kicked a heroin habit in New York City. I got very, very strung out for a while, I mean really, very strung out. And I kicked the habit. I had about a $25-a-day habit and I kicked it."

The two-hour long interview, which was recorded on Dylan's private plane during a 1966 journey from Lincoln, Nebraska to Denver, Colorado, also reveals the star's thoughts on death, with the musician suggesting he once considered killing himself.

Dylan, who turns 70 tomorrow, is heard saying, "Death to me is nothing... death to me means nothing as long as I can die fast. Many times I've known I could have been able to die fast, and I could have easily gone over and done it. I'll admit to having this suicidal thing... but I came through this time...
"I take it (music) less seriously than anybody. I know that it's not going to help me into heaven one little bit, man. It's not going to get me out of the fiery furnace. It's certainly not going to extend my life any and it's not going to make me happy...

"I'm not the kind of cat that's going to cut off an ear if I can't do something. I'm the kind of cat that would just commit suicide. I'd shoot myself in the brain if things got bad. I'd jump from a window... man, I would shoot myself. You know I can think about death, man, openly."

The recording was made while Shelton was working on Dylan's biography, No Direction Home, which first came out in 1986. The tapes were uncovered during research for a revised edition which was recently published to mark the star's upcoming birthday.

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Slams 'Glee' Creator: 'F*** That Guy'

While many chart-topping musicians have lent their time and talent to 'Glee,' Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl won't be one of them.

The rocker told The Hollywood Reporter that despite the show's success, he won't succumb to the pressure to have his music performed by any of Lima, Ohio's show choirs.

When Kings of Leon declined to have their hit 'Use Somebody' featured on the show, 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy announced, "F**k you, Kings of Leon. They're self-centered a**holes, and they missed the big picture."

Grohl says of Murphy's reaction, "The 'Glee' guy, what a f**king jerk," adding that he supports his fellow musicians who have declined offers to have their music showcased on the FOX hit.

After being approached by Murphy for the show, Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill said that while he had never seen an episode of the show, "We turn stuff down constantly."

"[Murphy] is so offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f**king show... f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do 'Glee,'" says Grohl.

"I watched 10 minutes. It's not my thing."

by Sarah Crow of PopEater

GOD I love this man! He couldn't have said it any better! Finally, someone who's making sense about all this pop culture going on. Tell 'em. TELL 'EM! I'm glad I've never seen any minute of that show! Why people love it I just don't understand...JUST LISTEN TO THE ORIGINALS PEOPLE! Smh!

With A Smile

Lift your head, baby, don't be scared
Of the things that could go wrong along the way
You'll get by with a smile
You can't win at everything but you can try.
Baby, you don't have to worry
'Coz there ain't no need to hurry
No one ever said that there's an easy way
When they're closing all their doors
And they don't want you anymore
This sounds funny but I'll say it anyway.

Girl I'll stay through the bad times
Even if I have to fetch you everyday
I'll get by if you smile
You can never be too happy in this life.

In a world where everybody
Hates a happy ending story
It's a wonder love can make the world go round
And don't let it bring you down
And turn your face into a frown
You'll get along with a little prayer and a song.
Let me hear you sing it
Lift your head, baby, don't be scared
Of the things that could go wrong along the way
You'll get by with a smile
Now it's time to kiss away those tears goodbye

By Eraserheads

For all the people out there who's feeling down and'll get by. Just keep smiling. Everything happens for a reason. This is a song with a very positive message to all those who feels like all hope is gone. We'll all get by with a smile. I would also like to dedicate this song to Barbara. I don't know if you'll ever read this but I read your last post in your blog. I've been very busy. Although we don't really know each other that much, you've been a big help for my blog. You may not like the song when you hear it but you may like the message. This is my only way of consoling you. =)

Pride and The Flame

Better days ahead

Reached out to feel each grain
A lifetime running through his hands
The scorching heat left our heart
The workings of a proud brown man
But nowhere could you see
Dark eyes look away

The pride and the flame

Reached out to feel the warmth
Time running through his hands
The scorching heat gave life
The heart of the proud brown man
And he says to his child
Who still couldn't stand

Win RUSH tickets

The Canadian rock band Rush known for their hits such as Limelight, The Spirit of Radio, 2112, Tom Sawyer, Freewill and so on is coming to New York's Madison Square Garden this April 10 for their Time Machine tour where they'll play Moving Pictures in its entirety.

Want to get free tickets? I just got the solution for you. Listent to Q104.3 during the tune-in times below. The chance to win is for the whole weekend but since Friday and Saturday is over there's still a chance today Sunday. Be the caller 25 at 888-872-1043 when Geddy and Alex tell you.

Plus: one Q104.3 Workforce member will get upgraded to the front row!

Tune-In Times

Sunday: 10am, 11am, 1pm, 4pm, 6pm, 8pm

This is the last day to win. My advice is be patient. When they say 10am it usually takes about 30-40minutes of the band to tell you when to call. It's worth it. Give it a try. I've won tickets before and Madison Square Garden is a great venue. I'm trying to score tickets but since I've won tickets before it might take me awhile to win again as I think they have a rule or something to win once you already won in the past 3 months or was it 6 months. Oh well. And oh yeah, it's also best to become a member. I recommend it.

It's worth a try. By the way, anyone can listen online not just the radio for more convenience. For more info, visit

Good luck for those who would want to try and win! =)
