Imma tickin' clock.

Cause every second counts.




Yes, I feel so motivated right now. :) And being awake while on duty at this very hour made me come up with a very great idea. To do my travel bucketlist and What-to-achieve list. (This really sounds great!!!)

This year, I will turn 22. And with this age. I should be really thinking about what I want for myself. 

I thought of things that would make me happy. And travelling was one of them.

I really wanna go places. But wayback, all I have was just my wildest imagination, never the things for transportation. The farthest that I’ve been here in the Philippines was Cebu and Bohol. If it wasn’t for my Mom’s convention, I will never experience that trip. (Good thing,  the magnitude 8.0? earthquake have not yet ruined everything!) That was also the first time that I experience flying on an airplane and because of it, I told myself that I will travel more :) 

After 2 years, last Nov.2013, I, together with my cousins, experienced SINGAPORE! wohooooo! thanks to graduation, I received a wonderful gift from my parents. That made me realize that I really want to be a traveler. I wanna be a “Dora-the-explorer” (perhaps, Benna-the-explorer but that doesn’t sound good! HAHA)

GOAL: Reach at least 5-8 Asian countries before I turn 30 :) 

Now, you do have an idea on where my salary will go. 

I just hope I could really make it, this is the moment to explore, wherein you will say that those experience were the fruits of your labor. Wherein you will not regret that you never enjoyed your being young and single by the time you have your own husband and own family. Right? 

Life is full of hope, fun and excitement. :)

Just think that you can and you will really make it. God is good all the time. NEVER FORGET THAT.




Hello tumblr! long time no, say? :P I think I really need to catch up on you. 

Today, is Ash wednesday, it’s (maybe) the start of Lent season so, let me just reminisce good memories that I’ve collected for the past wonderful months.

September 2013, this was the moment that I was able to pass the board exam. Wohooo, RMT! 

October 2013, I got my PRC license. COOL! 

Late October Early November 2013, I fly?flew? (whut ever!) onto my first major travel as a human being, hello Singapore! 

Yah, I’m with the awesome hernandez cousins. :)

Exactly, November 18, 2013. I got my first ever job! It maybe rough for the first week, but I can now say that I am well adjusted :)

December 3, 2013. Got my first ever pay slip! :”> Since it was my first, I think I’ve spent it all! haha

January 11, 2014. Another family member has been added to the Bautista Fambam since my kuya cousin got married, on which it concludes that we’re officialy 60 in the family. #SixtyAndStillCounting :)

For February? I guess, yeah I’m still single. But who cares? :) February made me realize that being single doesn’t make you a less of a person, but it molds you to be a better one not just to be ready for the person that you’ll be with for the rest of your life but also to benefit yourself with such great rewards.

March 2014. It’s still in the making and I hope I would be able to build good memories that I will keep and I can look back to as I take on my journey in life.

From now on, what matters most, is for me to appreciate what good things God has in store for me, that will let me motivate myself and inspire others. 

I may not be the perfect person for God’s blessings. But I’m thankful he always blesses me.

…when you are capable of working and earning your own salary. There’s no particular age, particular year or any other particulars on when do you begin LIFE. As a woman, you may begin life when you gave birth to a child. For men, you may begin life when you already have your family or we can all begin our lives in those circumstances that we need to begin life, until we all fulfill what we want for our future.

Green Lake (Grüner See) in Styria, Austria, is an amazing place. For half of the year, it’s an underwater village with fish swimming through the branches of trees, a floor covered in grass, benches and bridges.

For the other half, it is over ground. In the frozen winter months the area is almost completely dry and is a favorite site for hikers. As the temperature begins to rise in spring, the ice and snow on the mountaintops begins to melt and runs down into the basin of land below. The waters are at their highest in June when it becomes a mecca for divers keen to explore the rare phenomenon.

In the middle of sleeping, siyempre hindi mawawala yung managinip ka, and yun na nga, isang hindi ko maipaliwanag na panaginip.

Unlike any other dreams of mine, this one was very clear, I know what happened but I just don’t know how to interpret it. I think I need Leslie at this moment.

——-

This is what happened in my dream.

I have this cousin of mine named Kuya Mac and he asked me to accompany him on his pictorial sessions for his wedding and siya lang. Then, he’s wearing a toga and said “ito ang theme ko, gusto ko kasi wacky yung mga gagamitin sa wedding ko na pictures ko” something like that. ANG WEIRD NG TASTE! HAHA

After his pictorial he asked me, “Saan mo na balak magtrabaho?” and I was jokingly replied “kukuha ako ng HAAD then pupunta ako sa Middle East!” (but in reality that’s one of my options.) Then, he seriously told me, “Alam mo, sa ating lahat na nakapagtapos na, ikaw ang pinakainiingatan ng Lola mo.Kami kasi hindi namin sinunod yung kuya namin, pero ikaw alam naman naming kaya mo!”

THEN,

NAGISING NA AKO!

HUHU, ano kaya ang ibig sabihin noong mga linya na yon? Hindi siya tugma tugma pero may gustong iparating.  HELP.

Happy 1st monthsary sa pagiging RMT ko! (happy monthsary rin sa pagiging Yaya, Tambay, Tagalinis ng bahay na katulad ko, wala pang trabaho eh!) Pero sinadya ko naman talagang ‘wag munang magtrabaho, dahil ang dami pang nakabinbin na dapat gawin at paghandaan bago ako pumasok sa karera. 

Pero, habang ganito na tambay ako, I search for different works. May nakikita pero ewan may feeling na ayaw ko yun, ayaw ko niyan (ang choosy ko lang! but I should instill into my mind na, hindi, dapat hindi ako maging mapili but instead, maging pursigido at masipag dapat ako) at ang hirap hirap! sobra. Napapaisip tuloy ako na baka mamaya, hindi pala talaga ito ang para sa akin. Napapaisip na naman ako mag-aral, napapaisip akong ipagpatuloy ang MED. HUHU

Pag nakikita yung mga posts ng mga kaklase mo, alam na alam mo na yung desisyon nila ay gusto nila. Pero para sakin, para mag desisyon sa sarili ko, ang bigat bigat na responsibilidad. Marahil kasi naiatang ko na sa mga magulang ko ang dapat kong gawin sa buhay, inaasa ko sa kanila ang pag dedesisyon, takot akong tumayo para sa sarili ko with my both feet. PERO KAILANGAN KO NA TALAGA MATUTO. 21 NA AKO AND YET…

After my 5-day planned vacay with my cousins, promise, maghahanap na talaga ako ng work, kahit gaano kaliit yung sweldo, kahit gaano kahirap papasukan ko, makakaipon ako not just money but experience so that I could travel and explore more. HUHU LORD, AGAIN I’M PRAYING THAT YOU’LL LEAD ME TO WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO BE.

P.S. I REALLY MISS MY HIGHSCHOOL AND COLLEGE FRIENDS.

Nakaka-disappoint talaga. Kung iisipin, sobrang ganda ng Pilipinas, ang gaganda ng mga tourist spots at sagana sa kasaysayan. Mayaman ang Pilipinas, kahit sang aspeto, mayaman ang bansa natin, ni ultimo sa basura ilang ilang tonelada na ang nahahakot sa tuwing inaanod ito sa parang ng Manila Bay palang ha. Isa pa, mayaman na rin tayo sa baha. Akalain mo ilang taon palang ang nakalilipas noong Ondoy, hindi na natapos tapos ang mga baha na ito. Pero ang lahat ng ito ay may paraan. Gaano man katagal, masusolusyonan, kung iisipin ito ay problema lamang sa physical na anyo ng ating bansa. Ang hindi ko lang matanggap na kayamanan ng ating bansa, ay yoong mayaman din pala tayo sa mga tiwali, corrupt at mapansamantalang mambabatas. 

Nakakadismayang isipin na ang mga taong ito ay gumagastos ng milyon milyon hindi lang para sa mga maling proyekto, kung hindi sa mga pansariling proyektong sila mismo ang nakikinabang. PI namang malaman mo, na itong si Napoles may bathtub na pera, samantalang yung ibang tao walang matirhan, walang makain at higit sa lahat sa panahon ng kalamidad silang tunay na nahihirapan, silang tunay na naaargabyado.

Hay, ayaw ko nang i-stress yung sarili ko dito, ito ay pawang opinyon lamang pero Lord, kayo na ang bahala sa mga taong to, makarma nawa po sila. Amen. 

I-eenjoy ko nalang po ang mga magagandang tanawin ng ating bansa.




I really don’t know how to start this blog, but these past days, hindi naiiwasang pagusapan ang tungkol sa LOVE. 

Btw, I’m Mari Benna H. Bautista, RMT (yes! haha), 21 years of age. And proud to be an ‘NBSB’. haha

Pero sa buhay ko, napapaisip din ako eh, bakit kaya hindi pa ako nagkaka boyfriend man lang? Ano kaya ang mali saken? Meron ba o sila yung may mali? Joke. :P

Since I passed the boards, after the people have congratulate me, they will eventually ask, "may boyfriend ka na ba?" hindi ko alam kung bakit pero ang lagi kong sinasagot, "wala nga po e!" parang galit lang haha. Hindi iisang tao ang nagtanong niyan sakin. Kailangan ba pagpumasa ka na, mag boyfriend na agad? haha pero sabi naman ng mga magulang ko, pwede na daw, ayaw daw naman nila ako tumandang dalaga. (Dapat lang pwede na talaga! joke! haha) Babae rin naman ako, and through the years, lagi nalang crush, minsan yung pagkakaroon ko ng crush with certain person, iniisip ko na agad na siya yung para saken e, eh ni hindi pa ako nililigawan nun ha, hindi nga niya/nila alam na crush ko sila e, may time pa na yung ‘crush’ feelings nagiging love, pero dumadating naman ako sa point na hindi dapat, kasi nga… kasi nga… 

Sa totoo lang mas mahirap maging babae pagdating sa LOVE, ang daming efforts, kailangan mong maging presentable, mas maarte sa lalaki, maganda, sexy at kung ano ano pa.. (aminin niyo guys, totoo naman diba bibihira na ata ang lalaking tumitingin sa inner part rather than the outer part?) tulad ko, kung siguro hugis coke ang katawan ko, yung makinis ang balat ko, maputi, at maganda ng husto, baka grade 6 palang ako nagka boyfriend na ako. Aamin ako, kahit nag kaka crush ako, dati super duper man hater ako, intimidaing nga ata ako eh, at tsaka ‘ate’ ang tingin nila saken, huhu kaya feel ko naging reason din yun e, boyish pa! Pero iba na ngayon, pusong babae na rin ako, may damdamin, nagmamahal, nasasaktan, di nga lang nila alam..may sweetness rin naman ako. HAHAHA

Sa ngayon, hinihiling ko na after magka work, makahanap na ako ng isang lalaki na makakatuwang ko sa buhay. Naniniwala naman ako, darating ang taong yan. Meron akong pinapantasya ngayon e, kaso mukha namang malabo haha.. hayaan ko nalang na maging close friend ko siya tutal, mas masaya naman yun e. Naniniwala ako sa LOVE, at higit sa lahat sa LOVE NI GOD, kaya alam kong at the right time, ibibigay niya saken ang tamang tao na aking mamahalin at magmamahal sakin forever. I’ll just have to wait patiently and enjoy every SINGLE moment :) at siyempre set and know my priorities. Malay mo iba pala ang calling ni God para saken, we just have to believe in the POWER OF LOVE. :))
