So I started thinking about it. And I really just don't want anything.
I've had this problem in previous years. I would say it started when I got to be about 16 or so. I feel like when you're older you just don't want as many things. Or maybe that's just me.
Well, it's not that I don't want anything, it's just that, these days, if I want something, I just buy it. Well, if it's something I think I'll really use, and as long as I can afford it. Like, a few weeks ago, I decided it was time for me to get my own blow dryer, instead of just using the cheap ones my mom gets at the drugstore. So I ordered one off Amazon for about $30. I guess I could've asked for it for Christmas, but I had the money, and I didn't want to wait.
Also, I do want things, lots of things, but they're just not things my parents can get for me on Black Friday. Por ejemplo, I want to know that I'll get a job someday, preferably one with a decent salary and a healthcare plan. I want to get into grad school. Does Best Buy sell UNC acceptance letters yet? I want to find a decent guy, but I'm pretty sure my mom couldn't pick one up at Target (pun intended. Heh heh).

I could also just ask my parents for money, so that I wouldn't spend so much time working. But I have this weird attitude towards work/money, which is that I feel like if I have the time and opportunity to make money, then I should take it, even if that means I have less free time. I mean, honestly, I don't need to work as many hours a week as I do. I probably only spend half of what I make. But when I think about cutting down my hours so that I make just what I need to spend, I think, "no, I can save this money." Save it for what? I don't know. For something.
Well, anyway, I'll keep thinking about what I want for Christmas. Is Taylor Swift putting out a new CD soon? That would be cool. Oh, and I have thought of a few things so far: A gift card to jamba juice. New black flats. A blue UF shirt (All the ones I have are white and get dirty easily, especially on game day). And....that's it.
What are you guys asking for? And anyone have some tips on how I can get more time?
PS. Lots of serious posts lately, right? I don't know what's up with me and all this seriousness. I actually had an idea for a funny post for today, and then I got that Christmas email, which got me thinking about all of this. Oh well...maybe tomorrow
PPS. I just realized this is such a cliche, being like "waaah all the things I want are not sold in stores." But it's true!!!
PPPS. Did you know Rebecca Black has a new song? Listen here. We'll discuss later.
