- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. 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 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.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. 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.
Here, in no particular order:
1: More legal time on the computer. By legal I mean, that no one is going to get huffy if I don't get off the computer after one hour. So I sneak around like a ninja!
2: Visits from my lovely intarwebz buddies :( Pandaa~ *grins*
3: An ability to bloody concentrate on my schoolwork.
4: A room that is always neat and clean. *dreamy sigh*
5: A cute, sweet girlfriend.
6: Manga or anime. Preferably of the awesome kind.
7: Violin lessons.
8: Books about different cultures, languages and the stories of...well, practically every country on this globe.
9: Old things. Old clocks, old books, old religious items, old toys, old frames, old cards...you get the point. Things you could find by accident on a market, or a small antiquary.
10: Pen people! Cards! Writings!
It's pretty sad that I've only one person to tag, huh? XD G.! U r tag'd.
In other news, I got a flyer from the Uni in Leiden today. It's to let people know they're holding a translating contest. And...it's awesome. I now know a few sentences in Veps, which is spoken by around 10.000 people in Finland. Anyway, I'm going to ask if someone in my class wants to come, because going to Leiden and translating shit for hours on end alone isn't very attractive.
Hnn, if someone's coming, though..that'd be awesome.
