This is an Eclectic Holiday post. It is they day to list three wishes for the coming year, so here I am all ready to place my order :-) I guess I won't wish for the obvious things, like my family's health and safety. I mean, that is a given, right? I thought maybe I'd take this time to try and be a little more creative or something...
More like a magic Genie situation than a prayer, if you see what I am saying.
1. I wish I could get by with less sleep. I need more time! And I want it without that inconvenient exhausted feeling that comes the next day when I try to get it by just ignoring the conventions of "bed time".
2. I wish I could advance in my field without spending a great deal of time and money getting a Masters degree to do work that I already do. I don't want to devalue librarianship, but so much of it can be learned on the job. I'd love to get paid for the work I do, in spite of only having a Bachelors.
3. I wish I could fly. I've always wished it and I'm not giving up on the dream now!
I've always liked the saying - If wishes were horses, then beggers would ride. Sure these things are probably not going to happen in 2010...but dreaming is free and so is wishing. What are your three wishes?
