With Christmas coming up and my initiation of gift shopping, I thought about what I want this year. I don't usually have things I want, but this year, I actually want too much! I guess it's just things in general that I want to be able to earn eventually:
A new camera lens. My poor lens has never been the same on my Rebel T2i. It's really discouraging me from wanting to take more photos and improve my skill with its handling if the camera can't focus! I hope it's just the lens and not the actual camera with the problem...
A Kindle. Amazon has apparently released the new Kindle and it looks pretty cool. I really like reading but books are so darn expensive these days that a Kindle just makes more sense. I could read on the MRT, the bus, while waiting...all in my purse. Sounds nice!
Wacom Tablet. Wacom makes the best tablets and I want to learn how to use one! I remember I almost bought one for myself when I had saved up enough but then had to use the money for something else. Bummer.
New Phone. Okay, as much as I love my True Blue, I think it's time for me to upgrade. I've never had a "cool" phone, or even a current one, really. I've always had hand-me-downs, or whatever free phone they gave out. Blackberry, I'm looking at you!
Lynda.com subscription. Okay, with my Wacom tablet, I will need to learn how to use all the various products like Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. Especially since I can't afford to go back to school to learn all this!
Those are my main things...as always, I also want a new bag, shoes, dress, etc. Typical girl, aren't I?
I guess a lot of it stems from being abroad now...I usually wouldn't crave a Kindle or new lense so much except for the fact that I'm often in mid-transit.
Actually, for this Christmas, I would love to be in California with my family. I'd love to be cooking delicious dinners, baking yummy cookies and cakes, eating gluttonous meals, drinking peppermint mochas, seeing my friends, playing with my dogs in the leaves, wearing colorful scarves, and throwing an ugly sweater holiday party. I'd like to be somewhere cooler than 80 degrees Farenheit!
Anyways, I shouldn't complain, I'm in Singapore, living a different life, with different friends, different climate and different travel opportunities. Life is good and I'm thankful for that.
But I still miss California Christmases! =)
