Haven’t things changed? It’s not the same anymore. Either that, or am at a point where it’s not all holiday, jingles, decorations, gifts and christmas’y things at least for now, okay maybe it’s because it’s 21/12/2012 (which was supposed to be the end of the world according to the Mayans. Or we interpreted them wrongly, maybe what they meant was that they run out of paper to make calendars…lol). I’ll be working through the festive season, of course except for the public holiday. All the same, this is culture shock for me.
I miss the sleeping in’s, eating breakfast at lunch and lunch at 4, sleeping late, watching christmas’y movies and cartoons (kind of brings to life the Christmas spirit), not decorating and shopping around for stuff. Somehow at this time you could get away with putting anything in the shopping cart and dad wouldn’t go like “and what do you need that for?” or “is that really necessary”… gone are the days, now am all grown up. There are chances I could re-live that if we do shopping on Christmas Eve since I’ll be at home *whoop whoop*. That was the life of the festive season, now it’s like nothing is really happeeeening *cue dragged voice*. It’s just the usual.
If I had my way this Christmas, this is what I would ask for or get. Of course some I will get, some will remain a wish for now, others I’ll save for and try buy next year after saving a bit more for thee cause. Others, oh well, I’ll continue wishing and working harder to get.
Samsung Galaxy S3 or even a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. I’ve had my current E63 for the last many years, to an extent my baby sister is actually complaining. Oh my! I need a change of gadget, and this is the one am ogling for at the moment. If only…
Some nice woolen coats since our weather is proving to be quite shifty. I figured my wardrobe is more inclined to summer and spring. Oh wait, do we even have these seasons in the tropics? I meant to say the hot weather. While every morning it’s freezing, not anything close to winter but cold all the same. So, a few of these would do me good and help keep the doctor away. Seeing as my sinuses go bonkers every morning, it could be because I don’t know how to dress the cold weather.
Miss sleeping beauty could do with an annoying alarm clock. I don’t know why I’ve never gotten one all this years and the way I go on and on about sleep and snoozing. I’ve always used my phone because of how simple it is to snooze, I don’t even have to open my eyes. Just remove the annoying buzzy thing (that’s when your cell phone is demoted to just a thing) from under the pillow, press snooze or stop, and continue with the not so beautiful sleep now. Now that I want to get another cell, it can’t afford to be under the pillow…lol
wishes are made of this. But the bed side clock, maybe it will actually make me wake up…I think.
Who has a bed side alarm clock? Is it any different?
A stereo / music system/ home theatre. I don’t know what to call it, but it’s of late that I have been talking about it. Been comfortable with a T.V and DVD player but now I’m thinking, I would want me one.
I would actually want a much bigger house. Been thinking about it the last couple of months. I think it’s gotten to that time now where I need to have an extra room for when family and friends come over to visit. Or where I can actually call a couple of friends over for dinner, without wondering where the 5th person will seat or if one of them has claustrophobia, you know people and their issues *I’m thoughtful of you* so a really spacious house will do right. Plus, I want a big kitchen to exercise my culinary ummmm, okay not me, the boyfriend, he cooks way better than I do. So the more space, the less I interfere, like when I see him pouring the spice on the food and am like O_O isn’t that too much, then it turns our just perfect … smh!
Those are just a few of the things on my wish list, I could go on and on and on, but you get the drift. However, Christmas is not all about material things, it’s about spending time with your loved ones and appreciating those precious moments. Of course it’s also a little about gifting them and seeing the smile on their faces, oh I live for such! Since am a last-minute person, am still trying to figure out what to get who.
Do you believe in giving or gifting during Christmas?
Make a difference, make someone smile this Christmas. After all, that’s what festive seasons are about right? Keep safe and look out for each other. God bless y’all abundantly!
