My first ever wish list

I love making lists. At work I prepare a “to-do list” (a trait I got from Viv) which I check diligently. Once work is over, I move on to my moleskine notebook where my shopping lists, birthday lists and errand lists reside. You know you really love lists when your first blog entry begins with a list. The only list I’ve never really been a fan of is the ever popular wish list. Just the thought of a wedding registry (wish list nonetheless) makes me cringe – how do you know what people can/cannot afford? Do you think your relationship with the purchaser is worth a set of cutlery or a simple retro toaster?

Maybe I think too much and the only way to avoid hating anything is to try it for myself. Since I’ve never been one to ask for things (my family can attest) I came up with a wish list noting the few “wishes” I’d like to achieve in the next few years. Realistically the list is in order of what I think is more likely to happen first. launched

This will most likely change in time. But for now, I think it's enough goals (wishes) for one life time don't you?
