1:(the no-brainer) Books
I'm not really sure what books, exactly. I really am fine with borrowing novels from the library most of the time. And I can never think of specific books I want off the top of my head, but when I'm shopping I come across so many books I can't afford! Sometimes they're novels, sometimes they're cookbooks/craftbooks/other adorable non-fiction. I'd also like some really pretty-bound classics like the books above!
Clothes that make me look like a lady (aka Kate Middleton). Cute, flowery skirts and dresses encouraged.
3. An Engagement Ring
All strings attached, of course. That would be lovely. (no I'm not seriously longing for marriage within the next year. I literally have no option to anyway! But it's never too early to think about it!;)
4. A Harp
|See, it doesn't have to be completely gold. I'll take a wooden one just fine!|
5. A Kitten
Who cares about allergies?? I'll just keep a tissue to my nose the whole time. It is completely worth it for a little gray fluffy like this sweetie.
6. A (looong) trip to Europe
This means enough time to see every castle, cafe, museum and manor of interest in the continent. This means England, France, Belgium, Austria (VIENNA), the Netherlands, and Germany. And doing this with my European friends, of course.
7. College Tuition
Out of state tuition prices ain't cheap, guys. I'm not an ethnic/racial minority, I'm not living in poverty, and I don't have any diseases, so scholarships are harder to come by and win. In fact, I've been focusing so much of my life on paying for college right now, I'm surprised I've come up with other gift ideas (or blog posts for that matter). Most of these ideas are unreasonable and I know it; it's just that whenever I think of actually opening something on Christmas, I keep on thinking that I already have all I need and more in stuff, and that I'm going to be in deep, deep debt a few years from now. And it's depressing and frustrating. I'll figure out a way to afford it, even if that means I'm paying off student loans 20 years from now. But this Christmas, I'd really like the peace of mind that I can pay for college a little sooner than that.
Now that I've succeeded in sounding like a self-centered, spoiled whiner, I'd like to know: what are you wishing for this Christmas? Is there anything like kittens, harps, and trips to Europe that you know aren't happening anytime soon but still want anyway? And do you know any good scholarships I can fill out? :P
