want: (now & forever)

27 April 2010

  • a puppy (sorry kitties, but it’s true)
  • people to not mess up the apartment listing ads on craiglists with a whole slew of misrepresented and just WRONG ads.  (West Rogers Park is NOT Boystown.)
  • my apartment to magically be packed up when the time comes
  • an eleventy-million dollar shopping spree to ModCloth.com
  • to be able to support myself with my writing and design work/skills
  • a membership to Shedd (and about 50 other places in Chicago)
  • to be able to sit and focus and write this story that’s been playing in my head for the last week
  • just to spend dedicated time writing!
  • a bike.  a pretty one.
  • to remember to include my cell phone bill in my monthly budget

Just a small list for today… Some of it lines up with my Life List… which I just created for the first time ever.  Weird.

I’ve never really been one to want a Life List.   I always felt like it would evolve into a “things I never did” list or a “I feel lame” list.  I realize that these lists, like my life, are not set in stone.  And thus, I really shouldn’t worry about it.

So I’m just throwing all of this stuff out to the universe.  Hoping that maybe the universe will play nice, and who knows… I’ll get a sweet bike to ride to my amazing writing/editing/design job, then back home to my killer apartment with my Lovely roommate.  So yeah, sending all this out to the universe.  We’ll see what happens from there.

  • This is basically my exact “want” list too! I guess my main addition is a house way out in the country, surrounded by nature, away from cities and all the turmoil that goes with that. And then I can settle down and write…

      Oh, I don’t know if I could do the house in the country… at least not for my main abode. I do love that idea though. I get the appeal of it… but yeah, I need the life & movement of the city.

  • I too have a bucket list.

    However everything on mine is unattainable.

    • Erini

      I thought about making a crazy one… just to see if maybe, just maybe, I can accomplish at least one of them.

  • Lists are awesome! (coming from a self-proclaimed list lover) It’s good to know what you want because they you’ll recognize it when it comes 🙂

      I love lists too! So it’s surprising I waited this long to do a life list… 🙂

  • Even though at age 32, I probably am too old for the clothes, I hate you a little for sharing ModCloth.com. 🙂 (And by hate, I mean it in the nicest sense.)

    • Erini

      hahaha… Mod Cloth is an evil evil place. They make me want to spend all of my moneys. Maybe I’ll treat myself for my birthday…

    @Queen of Quirky: 32 is not too ripe an age to wear cute clothes! I am going on 31 and plan to wear teh cute clothes until I can’t. I hope someone will be polite and tell me when they no longer look good.
