Update: I have amended the last paragraph since publication.
At the end of the month, nearly, I will be nineteen. (And, to be honest, I am slightly freaking out. Next year I will be twenty! TWENTY!) In a departure from the slightly intense posts of late, I thought that I would share my birthday wishlist. Generally speaking, these are things that would be useful to me in terms of career. However, this post is frivolous; it’s not like I’m requesting the lot, or think I’m entitled to it.
I love jotters. And I have a notebook with me at all times, because if I don’t write it down, it doesn’t exist. A moleskine notebook-large, ruled, hard back-is a dream piece of stationery. (Adding my initials to a bottom corner would also be wonderful.) And.. it’s blue!
Books are my life. If I could not read, I don’t know where I would be now… I love books, that’s the only thing to it. I would love to read Do I Make Myself Clear? By Sir Harold Evans. I have a list of books that I really would like to read if anyone is interested…
I would also love a newspaper subscription. (But the thing is, I can’t choose on one paper-it seems a form of favouritism.)
Sometimes I’m tired of the way I look; the slouchy bags, the dresses, the geeky shoes. Lets change that! I love these shoes from ASOS; they look comfortable, exactly what I need for walking round all day.
It would be more professional to hand over at events.
After interviewing Sir Harold Evans, I have recognised the need for a decent Dictaphone. My iPhone can’t pick everything up, and the audio quality was not great. A cheap, portable dictaphone would be a wonderful asset.
Pretty self explanatory, this one..
The thing is; I love Twitter, I love Instagram. I adore receiving letters from pen pals. I also look forward to seeing my classmates twice a week. I just wish that I had somebody that I could go out with-on outings, not in *that* way-like how college use to be, when I saw people daily.
What would you like for your birthday?
