I will be turning 25 on June 21st which is coming up next week! I don't really have anything silly or fun that I want for my birthday other than maybe a big dance party with my best friends or any sort of romantic and fun time spent with my boyfriend :) All that I really want in life is to be able to invest in the people I love and have the means to pursue my goals. I am a daydreamy and whimsical spirited girl but at the same time, I like being very practical. I don't like wasting money and I have never had a credit card. My most important goals each month are focusing on paying off my college loans and my computer payments. Where sentimental and cutesy gifts are very sweet, it means SO much to me when people want to give to me in a way that aids in my personal and career goals. I feel like my friends understand me best and communicate love to me beautifully when they recognize my dreams and encourage me in my goals, whether that is by gifting me some jewelry tools or simply writing me a heartfelt letter, letting me know they believe in me.
I don't think I've ever made a Birthday Wishlist on my blog before, but I thought I would give it a try. Most of the blogger's wishlists that I have seen have had awesome fun girly things on them like new clothes, candles, perfumes, etc. And as much as I do like and want those things, the practical needs in my life are soooo much more important to me.
For my birthday, I just want to know that those around me believe in me. That means the most. Whether I receive presents or not, simply knowing that those around me in real life and the blogging world support me and believe that I can achieve my dreams is what I need most. I can pinch and save to get the supplies I need slowly over time as long as I know I have friends to encourage me as I work hard towards my future. Glamorous things sound fun, but I don't need them, and it is MUCH more important to me that I focus on just paying off my college loans for the next 10 years. My dream is to be out of debt. And my life is lovely now and I don't need much to be happy. Happiness is already here :) And the pursuit of my dreams are the icing on a joyful life.
But hey, if you know someone who is getting rid of their old jewelry making tools, or an old tripod, let me know! Hand me downs are awesome!
These are my practical birthday wishes :) 25 will be a good year.
