Yes, it’s that time of the year again. It’s cold and dark outside, you have to wear triple layers of clothing in order not to freeze to death, there’s a scent of hot chocolate and Glühwein everywhere and you start receiving letters from all over the world that people have been nice and sweet.
And of course I also have been nice and sweet this year:
I graduated as a journalist this year, so I did my homework and studied hard.
I published several articles on news sites when I did my internship.
That’s impressive, no?
I took my blogging to the next level by actually try and write a blogpost
now and then.
I am currently studying to become a History and English teacher. And I still do my homework every night.
Sooo, I made a bit of a whishlist for this Christmas…. Santa put on your reading glasses:
I really, really REALLY want some books from my whishlist! Since I am a bookblogger, I obviously need books to write about.
And since my to read list is ever growing, Christmas is a the occasion to scratch some off:
First of all: I’ve been wanting to read ‘Is it Just Me?’ by Miranda Hart ever since I saw the series Call the Midwife. I adore that woman! She’s so funny and real.
The second book I’d like to scratch of of my wishlist is ‘The Last Concubine’ by Lesley Dower. I am trying to expand my HF to Japan and China and I think this novel is the perfect way to do it.
But I can’t neglect English history of course, so maybe the novel ‘To The Tower Born’ by Robin Maxwell is a nice read as well.
I also like some of my favorite series on DVD. Eg Peaky Blinders. Cillian Murphy’s eyes alone are enough to buy the DVD’s, but there’s even a brilliant storyline, so that’s a win-win.
Polaroid pictures are always on my whishlist. They’re so expensive… Maybe Santa is feeling generous this year.
I graduated after all so….
I’ve been wanting a typewriter for so long… But they are so expensive 😦 So maybe Santa will bring me one this year. Preferable this blue one.
And last but not least: ANYTHING THE LUSH SHOP HAS TO OFFER. And I think this one is quite obvious…
But most of all, I would like you to give people some common sense. Just enough so they can think about what they’re doing to this world and to other people ( and so they’ll stop blocking the entrance on the train or tram. I’d very much appreciate that.)
So Santa, I guess you have your choice of gifts to put under my Christmas tree 🙂 In order, I promise I’ll be a sweet girl in 2015 as well.
