Last year I posted my Christmas List on here, which was full of basically really expensive, inappropriate requests. I think I was hoping my family would stumble across it and be inspired to buy me a new MacBook Pro, but it never happened.
This year I am doing it again, and I guess being a little more realistic about the things I want. I’m breaking it down to Fantasy Gifts (the gifts I want but know I’ll probably never get), Realistic Gifts (the gifts that I think would be appropriate given my lifestyle, hobbies, and infatuations), and Please Don’t Give Me These Gifts (gifts that I know would be better received by other people…I’m not ungrateful, it’s the thought that counts, but think of this as a tool to help).
15” MacBook Pro – $1,500
I’m nearing graduation, so I think if I don’t get this for Christmas I’ll ask for it for my graduation. I’m positive that I won’t get it for graduation either, so I’ll end up spending my own money on it sometime next summer, probably. My current 15” MacBook Pro will be 3 years old in May, and though I love it, I think it’s time.
Planet Ticket to and from Italy – $900
I have this thing where I only fly across the Atlantic every other year. I was hoping to stop that trend this year but didn’t have the time since I was working full time over the summer. Hopefully, in 2010, I’ll make it back home to Italy and make more life-changing memories.
Meet & Greet Lady Gaga Monster Ball Tickets
These aren’t unreasonably priced considering you get front row seats, her Heartbeats headphones, catering, and a meet & greet photo op. However, I’m not about to drop half a grand on anything unless it’s a down payment on a new car, house, or student loan. However, of all of the gifts in my fantasy section of this list, this one would probably make me cry the most upon opening.
