Edit: Oh wow! Thanks to whoever got me a subscription! <3 That was pretty awesome of you! Thank you so so so much!
Seeing everyone do this made me kinda want to fill it out... >.> Even if most my wishes are things that could never possibly happen... but buh... It never hurts to wish, right?
HE BASICS: write a Christmas/Holiday wish list. It can be any 10 wishes you'd like to have granted, no matter what they are. Possible or seemingly impossible. People look and grant the wishes if they can. It's not about "OMFG PRESENTS", it's about making someone else's holiday a little brighter by giving. Personally, I get more out of giving than receiving sometimes. It's just a good feeling to give.
** Make a post in your journal. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
** If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. In this case, you can always just note someone on dA.
** Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your journal, so that others can join in and participate to spread the holiday joy!
** Surf around your friend list to see who has posted their list (Also check out the forum [link]
). And now here's the important part:
** If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
** You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
NOW LET'S SEE IT!
1.) Win the Lottery. Seriously, I'll need to moolah for school. Loans are going to kick me in the butt when I'm FINALLY done, and I'd love to not have a job while I'm in school. ;.;
2.) Somehow go to Comic-Con. Seriously, I think it's the one convention I would quit all other conventions to go to. Just once.
3.) Disney Classics on DVD. X3 Har... I needs to get CRACKIN!
4.) STAR TREK STUUUUUUUUUFF.... o.0 Uniforms, props, anything.
5.) I'd freakin love to be able to meet Quinto, Pine, Pitt, and like a bajillion other actors that I love to death..... XD;
6.) Runnin out of idea's here... There really isn't much I want, I guess to get accepted into UNT so I can get my loan?
7.) Uuuuh... a trip to Scotland, or Ireland... or Europe in general.
8.) A chainmail shirt (It's the make or break item for me to do Link... XD; and the one thing I wouldn't mind NOT having to make, haha)
9.) For it to be a white Christmas... but with the weather like it's been here in texas... not likely. :C
10.) I wish to have a safe and fun New Years and Ikkicon and have a blasty blast with my friends. <3
Yup... that's it. XD; Like I said, most are just wishes that I'd like to happen sometime before I die
It made me feel good that I had to start thinking really hard after the first few... really means that there isn't much I wish for. I honestly have a lot already. The best friend in the world, a great place to live, and loving family and awesome friends. The only other thing I could truely ask for would be for money to get me the rest of the way through school.
Well Merry Christmas to all! And hopefully some of your Christmas wishes will come true!
