I WANT!

There are so many things I want.
So, I’m taking a break from the baking to list it. Maybe next year I will check my list and see what I got (this is not a gimme…I remember in 2004/2005 I wrote a list on paper. A year or so later I found it and was happy to note I’d got a lot of the stuff…stuff even included “being able to eat more than just chicken and cucumbers”. It wasn’t all material).

  • Money
  • A job (well, I want the money more than the job but I need a job to get money, right? Also, I need to do more with my time so a job could work)
  • EDIT: A new lens for my camera – 50mm f/1.4 or something so
  • EDIT: A tripod
  • a new phone!!! (man! do i really need one? not really but who cares! I *want*)
  • ASUS eeePC
  • A new laptop! (Well, more than I want a new laptop, I just wish I could upgrade my current laptop. I wish I could put more RAM in it and that the processor could be upgraded. I mean I don’t know how people go about disposing of laptops/computers. I had the dilemma a couple years ago with the Dell that just wouldn’t die but was crawling and I wanted to take a hammer to it…because an old computer…is old but if it’s still working how can I get rid of it? So, if I did get a new laptop, what would I do with my old one? I don’t know. And mine still works…it’s just…you know slow…
  • New tools for the kitchen (mostly scales and thermometers. I’m sure there are other things I need but this would be a start).
  • My own house (yes, I’ve always dreamed of owning my own house and land. Not working doesn’t really help this along. And writing the balance of the payment for hajj is going to seriously deplete my funds…hence money at the top of the list…and the wishlist so that I can get out of my system all the things I want but can’t afford and won’t get).
  • Someone to buy some of my books (I’m weeding through…getting rid of some…figuring out what to do with the others…)
  • Lose weight
  • Stop taking all my pills…ie get better
  • Grow juicy red tomatoes

I know there’s more.
But I’ve forgotten.
Maybe I should’ve made this a page and update it as time goes on.
I’ll think about that. It can always be a page, later…or something, right?
