Wishing on a Plane


Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now

It is really interesting that some people (that includes me) only think of their wish list when holiday season is fast approaching. I find it so difficult and stressful to make a wish list, most especially if you’re being forced to make one.

Yesterday, one of my best friends wouldn’t stop convincing me to give her my wish list because she needed to get me her Christmas gift as soon as possible. I don’t celebrate Christmas and she knows that.

You might be wondering why I don’t celebrate it. I know it’s the most beautiful time of the year, but I grew up with a family who doesn’t observe this special event. My family’s religion does not believe in it. Nevertheless, we have so much respect in people who do.

Despite not celebrating, we liked the part where people exchange gifts during Christmas season. It’s probably not fair to my friends because they always give me something when I barely give them anything on this day. πŸ˜€

So when my best friend asked me for my wish list, I just said I wanted glitter pens. I couldn’t think of anything I really want, and I think being a minimalist greatly affects my wants these days. My materialistic tendencies still come back every now and then, but it’s not as intense as it was years ago.

Typically, this is what would always be on my wish list.

A vintage classic type writer.

I love this whole set-up.: 17:

An old camera, or a Polaroid camera.

Cameras! I want that Fuji Polaroid (the pastel one) SOOOOOO BAAAADDDD!!! please I WANT:

A Diana F+ Camera.

It was a great rags-to-riches story, set in the early 60s - an all-plastic camera by Lomography, the Diana, found her way into the market, marketed as a novelty item. It wasn't long before she took the photography world by storm, winning people over with her twisted, haphazard effects, ranging from multiple exposures to light leaks.: OH MY GOODNESS IF SOMETHING HAD TO BE NAMED AFTER ME THIS WOULD HE IT // pink diana camera flash leopard:

A dream catcher especially made for me.

Exclusive original air "dream catcher can DIY hang festival lamp decoration window bar and restaurant Coffee hall birthday gift for Valentine's Day gift graduation gift: Wedding Dreamcatcher/Dreamcatcher Mobile by TheBigSkyPlace on Etsy, $105.00: Dreamcatcher moblie:

My own library.

In honor of #NationalLibraryWeek, we are giving away this amazing, handmade Little Free Library!:

Chokers, lace dresses, vintage boots and so many things.

Apparently. these are just images I adore and often look at on my free time. These are things I wish I could have, but I realized it may be too much to have them. It is too materialistic. There’s nothing wrong about loving physical things, but as they say, too much of something is also not great. Plus, none of these things matter when at the end of the day, you’re alone and longing for someone.

Right now, when I think about creating a wish list, I think more of the things that I cannot touch or hold.

I think of what I cannot see.

I think of what I cannot hear or feel.

I think of someone —

someone I barely see every day;

someone I don’t hear often;

someone I cannot feel with my own hands.

Winter months is tough, you know? But I’m hoping and I’m optimistic that it won’t be too tough this time. I am pretty sure some of you, especially those in long distance relationships, also wish the same.

You wish to be with the people you love. You wish to spend winter nights with someone special. You wish to be together, even for a short period of time.

You wish for that plane to come and land soon.

Or you wish to be on that plane that will fly or lead you home.

What would you wish for if you had one chance?
So airplane, airplane, sorry I’m late
I’m on my way so don’t close that gate
If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight
And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night


Winter Wishes

  2. Great post as always. ❀ and yah, since November I’ve been trying to write a wish list but I couldn’t think of what I really wanted. And then as Christmas is getting nearer, all I wish is to spend a day with him already. Even just for a day if 2 is too much to ask for.
