Your "Dream Come True" thread Now, to be perfectly straight with you all: I honestly don't consider myself very materialistic (or at least, I didn't used to be). As a matter of fact, I seriously thought for a long time about joining the church--maybe the Franciscans (pun not intended)--and about taking the vows. I honestly admire both nuns and monks (whether Catholic or Buddhist) immensely. Still after 8 years of a lot of self-imposed denial, getting kicked around a lot, and not really having what I need even just to survive financially; I think I've pretty much had it with poverty all together. I still don't really want anything extravagant, mind you--I just don't want to own things that break down constantly; or have to put up with situations that are insufficient for basic comfort. Frankly, I'm tired of worrying about stupid, stupid crap, when I could be working on important projects. I want to be helpful--and to make sacrifices where necessary--but I'm absolutely done with being abused. So, suffice it to say: poverty--you're on notice! And lately: all I can ever seem to think about is actually nesting, in a sense; and to get past the mundane inadequacies of my life. Anyway, I just had this notion somehow: of posting some pictures of what I actually want (to literally visualize my dreams); and naturally, I encourage all of you to do the same. I consider it therapeutic, and psychologically purging; if not flagrantly crazy. "But I can dream at least, can't I?" Here then is a thread, maybe for your own personal rainbows & unicorns (if that's anyone's thing). I'll go first. I WOULD LIKE... To live here: To drive this car: To wear this suit: And maybe--if I'm able to get married some day also--I think I'd like to wear a tuxedo like this: Incidentally, of late I find that I keep getting trapped at home on Saturdays (since we've been sharing a vehicle at the Ziegler's since December ); and so, I usually end up somehow watching WE network programs with my mother and sisters (if this thread is any indication). That is why, in conclusion, I'd just like to point out an observation I've made of wedding gowns on television... Ahem: they never seem to have sleeves. And I happen to like sleeves. So dammit--in my personal unicorn world of happiness--they'll be sleeves on MY bride! I like this old dress. I'm just say'in. Happy daydreaming folks.
