I don’t have anything in particular to post about, but I want to blog because I have a feeling if I don’t now I won’t really have anything to blog if I waited for a good idea to come anyway.
Anyway! I meant to do a proper shopping list for things I need or want to get for myself but I always seem to forget to, so I might as well do this on my blog, where hopefully a comment or two will remind me I need or want to get those things, so I won’t spend on unnecessary things in order to get things I’m going to put in the list.
Alright, enough rambling. This list is for my new room, which I’ve mentioned in passing in some post previously.
The Need/Want List
because the current one is disintegrating with every sleep I do on it. I’m eyeing this platform thing where you lump your mattress on it and there are two shelves which you can arrange around the platform in a few combinations, depends on whether you buy a queen-sized or a super single mattress. It costs RM600 (plus minus USD$250). 😦 But I could sleep with my favourite books beside me, imagine that!
The current one I have still works fine, no termites eating it or anything, thank goodness, but if I’m going to move into a new room I should do it with all things new, right… 😳 Anyway I deserve it because I never got a present for my graduation! Macau didn’t count, that was a… rite of passage! Anyway, I didn’t have the time of my life there, so that’s not a proper present. So yes, if I say I need a new wardrobe, then I do!
to dump all my junk, namely my collection of posh paper bags, postcards and bookmarks. I’m not a hoarder, I just have… interesting choices for the kind of hobby that requires collecting. 😳
This is the raison d’être of my wanting to move into a new room, because my current room is too small to fit a bookshelf in. 😦 Otherwise, I’m perfectly fine with a small space for a bedroom! I’m already planning to get a Billy bookcase from Ikea this week, but most likely a Kilby bookcase ‘cos it’s cheaper. But the Billy bookcase is white and I love white…
5. Writing table & chair
This is not entirely necessary as my computer is downstairs in the living room, so I really don’t need one. But since this room is bigger I should fill it up, right?? 😛 Anyway, I can always get this later if I chance upon a good bargain.
6. Armchair/Two-seater couch
Now, this is really not necessary since I can flop onto my new bed and read, but like I said, all that space! It’s really sort of my little dream to have a special spot in the house where I like to read, and I’d love to have an armchair in my room as that special spot.
The only piece of furniture I have in the new room right now is a carpet which is more like faux grass – it kinda resembles a patch of grass! It’s very soft on the feet, but I expect it’ll be very hard to clean. 😕
Well, even though this is what I want for Christmas, I won’t be getting them all by then because it’s impossible to buy my dream bedroom furniture with the amount of money I have right now. I haven’t even started Christmas shopping! (Oh, I’m not Christian, in case you’re wondering, I just subscribe to the commercialism of it!) Anyway, I plan to move into my new room with the requisite furniture before Chinese New Year, since we Chinese believe in new beginnings then. 🙂
(Sigh, what’s all that talk in the previous post about not navel-gazing too much?? Oh well, I did also say I don’t want to struggle… so I stopped fighting against my natural desire to talk about myself. )
What about you, what do you want for Christmas? Be as imaginative and materialistic as you can be!
