What do you want?

We all say we know. We don't. We pretend we know. We don't. What is it we really want? Everyone gives some bullshit answer...

"I want happiness"

"I want money."

"I want love."

This is such bullshit. Of course everyone wants happiness...because what other option is there?

I am more interested in what everyone really wants. It takes some thinking but I know I can figure out at least a few things I want.

Why am I thinking about this? Well I guess I just feel like if I don't pay attention to what I want, then no one else will. How is someone supposed to give you what you want, whether it be a sweet nothing or a new car...if you yourself have no friggen clue?

What I want...

I want a pair of jeans that fit so perfect no one else in the world would be able to wear them.

I want to feel like I am an angel to those in my life.

I want to be held...tight.

I want some kissing fish to put on the shelf.

I want a mini cooper.

I want children....someday.

I want my hair to behave 365 days a year.

I want a vespa.

I want to wake up in the morning looking radiant and beautiful.

I want to never get cramps again.

I want a chocolate river in my backyard like Willy Wonka.

I want my mother to retire.

I want my future (still not written and have no idea what it's about) book to be a success.

I want a cute unique home...no cookie cutter house for me.

I want my Great grandparents to live long enough to be Great Great Grandparents.

I want new black boots.

I want a pair of orange juicy sweats.

I want to move out.

I want sparkly things.

I want a puppy.

I want to have pictures taken.

I want to play dress up.

I want every single one of my Amazon wish list items (695 items)

I want to feel like I make people in my life feel good about themselves.

I want to always feel good about myself.

I want to go to Greece.

I want to win the lotto.

I want to win something.

I want the BF to get all that he deserves. Conde Nast needs to call him.

I want to have a Chanel purse.


What is it you all want? I love hearing so do tell in the comments section. :)

Happy Monday...well not too bad for a Monday anyway

Hi, ##NAME##, I was hunting for Can I make a supercar stuff when I found your blog. I reckon that's pretty cool. It takes effort to do what you've done. Keep it coming. John ##LINK##.
