Thanks to Miss Stephanie for inspiring this post.

So, every now and then it’s okay to look at things that you wish you had or places you’d like to go or things you liked to do. Making a wishlist can be a great way to set some goals and to keep you motivated. After all, it’s healthy to dream! Curious about some things that I wish I had? I’ll share:

1. Bedding

We’re not talking bed-in-a-bag either. I’m tired of comforters that fall apart after just a few years. No more scratchy sheets! One day, I’m going to have soft sheets, fluffy pillows, and blankets that don’t come in a bag. Really good bedding is always worth it.

2. Adobe Creative Suite

I took some classes in basic design at MU and really enjoyed it. Now I want to build my portfolio by making mock ads/promo materials. If I save up enough, this wish on my list can become a reality after Christmas. We’ll see. Perhaps I’ll get enough time in the Comm. lab to build a nice portfolio.

3. Big Girl Camera

I’m not incredibly skilled in photography, so there’s no need for a pro-level DSLR. In a few more years, maybe I’ll upgrade to something bigger and a bit more powerful. Right now, the Canon PowerShot I have meets my needs.

4. Cottage

Okay, so this is something that isn’t exactly attainable at the moment, but I’d really love to live in a cottage. It’s cute, economical, and so much better than a McMansion in a development somewhere. I’d like one that had lavender and lilacs growing outside…and internet access.

5. Kitty Condo

This is really for Annie’s benefit, seeing if I get the house of my dreams, she should be able to as well.

6. Fresh Flowers

Every now and then, I indulge in a nice bouquet of fresh flowers. It brightens up the house and makes the room feel cheery. It’s a simple pleasure, but one that’s worthwhile.

7. Something from Etsy

Not sure what yet – I fall in love with another item on here every day. Etsy is one of my favorite places to shop and it’s a great place to find unique gifts. I try to do most of my Christmas shopping there.

8. Trip to Ireland

Being an Irish girl by heritage, it would be nice to see where my ancestors came from. Not to mention, the cliffs, the castles, and the green, green, green.

9. Trip to Paris

Ah, Paris. The city of love. The Avenue des Champs-Élysées. The Eiffel Tower. The Moulin Rouge. Montmarte. Versailles. All things I want to see before I get old and feeble.

10. Financial Security

I’m 21 and a student. I don’t expect to be rich. It would be nice for the loans to go away and for me to feel better about money. It’ll come with time. Let’s just hope I get a good job when I graduate :-)

  1. Doesn’t it feel good to have a wishlist?? I love them. I could make one almost every month. Lol. And it feels even better to check stuff off that list too! :)

  2. Wish lists are great…your goals are defined. Keep plugging away and you’ll get exactly where you want to be.
