a little bit of this, a little bit of that

Just a little {honest} contemplation...
I like.
  • I like when someone calls {not just a text} just to say hi. 
  • I like when my great grandparents tell me they love me because they don't tell anyone else.
  • I like when my hair does exactly what I want it to.
  • I like a good pair of jeans. 
  • I like REAL friends... not fake ones. 
  • I like movies. 
  • I like books. 
  • I like knowing that the feelings I have towards someone (friend or other) are reciprocated. 
  • I like knowing I have no control even though I wish I did. 
  • I like carbs. Lots and LOTS of carbs. 
  • I like my love handles. {K, that's a lie but if I say it enough.. maybe one day I will believe it}
  • I like knowing I have a God that loves me no matter what.
  • I like a beautiful soul. They are hard to come by. 
  • I like wine.
  • I like my dogs.
  • I like my blog. 
  • I like my readers and comment leavers. 
  • I like a lot more things that would make this list entirely too long.

 I want.
  • I want to drink from mason jars more. 
  • I want to have a dog in my life until I am no longer here.
  • I want to take a photography class. Or two, or three.
  • I want to be successful. But not 'society's' definition of successful... My own definition.
  • I want a BIG German Shepard. 
  • I want to travel as much as possible. 
  • I want to help in a third world country. 
  • I want to help in my country. 
  • I want to adopt. 
  • I want to do so many things it hurts...
  • I want to laugh more than I cry. 
  • I want to have clear skin. 
  • I want to give more than I receive. 
  • I want to be a good example of Christ. 
  • I want to make good grades but at the same time never study. 
  • I want twin boys {eventually}. Carter and Zane. 
  • I want love. All around me, feel good, can't stop smiling, kiss everyone, hug all, and harm no one kind of love. 
Now friends... 
It's your turn. 
Or just tell me one little thing.
I wanna hear anything you have to say. 
It can be from the deepest desire, 
to the silliest of likes, 
or just a random fact you want to share.  
Let me hear it! 
You might even surprise yourself with what you have to say...

I said on my post but I'll say here:
TRUST ME, you weren't the only one! I'm hanging in there, but it may take me a couple weeks to completely recover!

I want to do this post as my own but right now I'm still working on finals shenanigans. SO I'll give you a preview:

I like the feeling of freshly shaved legs in my bed!

I want to make a positive impact on just ONE person before I die.

You're fabulous :D

I love reading your cute blog! I've never commented, though.

I want to: finish college strong (I start my senior year in Jan.), make homemade greeting cards for a living, and never get sick of coffee or Diet Coke. My deepest desire is to travel to each place on my practically never-ending list of places I'd like to see.

Hope you have a great week! Halfway to the weekend :)

vintch said...

love this list! i can relate to so, so many of them--chiefly "i like dogs." however, mine would have to be replaced with "i like dogs so much that sometimes i feel like my heart is going to explode when i see one."

:) love this post!
