So , today I decided to decorate my apartment.It's almost Christmas.
It was fun!
Did you know that most tree lights have music coming out of them , even if it's tinny?
I didn't *chuckle* , but it definitely was a CI moment.I was like searching for the radio remote..was thinking I had left the radio open *LOL*
Did you know that if you hit 2 decoration balls together they clink very softly.
I did knew , I was told of it , but never HEARD of it.not until today.YAY!
Did you know that most of my christmas stuff had some sort of song?
I just got aware of that fact.
After I sat , looking at the tree..I got aware of one sad fact..I don't have any pictures to take you.My cell phone camera is pretty crappy.
So , I decided to do my wishlist.And I compared my differences.Every year , I'd have , a long list.Year after year. I'd want a lot of things that I didn't have.
This year seems so different.only 4 or 5 things are on my list.and most are things that WILL make my life easier. Like some door alerting stuff , as when I'm in my apartment , I have CI off to relax after college.Like the FM system.Or the rechargeables.Or like a good replacement camera for the stolen one.
It is a short list.
But year after year , I always hope I would have them.This year, I do know I won't have them.Not unless I do it myself.
But I wish , there was some christmas magic, to find some unknown pressies under the tree, just for having some of the magic.
I need that magic.But everyone says that I'm an adult now and have to behave accordingly.And adults don't have magic.
So I'm looking and looking.When someone sees me looking at these things , I always say , they're not for me.For a friend.Lie.But , I don't want for once to say that I need or want these things, as when I told them I was always admonished.
So , I just go along , try to find myself.But sometimes a little magic help is appreciated.and needed.
Sorry if this post is a little upper or downer, you choose.
Or maybe I read a bit too much Harry Potter books and fanfiction.But it's a proud addiction of me.Fantasy and sci-fi books enthrall me , bring me to other worlds , that my problems simply don't exist.
But my secret wish is this.To wake up in Christmas , and find presents under the tree.And they will be just *what* I need and want.And even that , to find that happiness , like a child , is just invaluable.
