Things I want right now.

– To finish my Masters with straight HDs.

-To get a PhD at a fancy school (fully funded, obviously)

-To get five articles published in academic journals

-To get an awesome job that I love that pays well where I was rapidly promoted, yet where I could wear jeans to work on Fridays, if not more regularly.  Or maybe where I could wear yoga pants.  That would be ok too.

-To replace my good camera that got stolen

-To go to Lebanon and Turkey and places around there at the end of this year to holiday, even though I am currently both broke and in debt.  Or to India!

-To work overseas again

-To either become Prime Minister of Australia, or an ambassador to somewhere, or to be someone important multilaterially (not in the enemy of the state kind of way, obviously).

-To write three books that are hugely successful, and then to turn down an offer to write a fourth  because I don’t think I could maintain the creative integrity and I just needed some ‘me’ time, especially after working on the film adaptations.  I would explain this to Oprah and she would nod understandingly and then give me a free car.

-To never work again, yet still have enough money to go on jaunts to Paris to buy macarons or to Bali to eat nasi campur on a whim or to spend a large part of my day posting feminist rants in the comments sections of mainstream newspaper websites just for kicks.

-To eat a good curry for dinner.

Well, there’s only one of these that I can do today.  Better stick the rest on that to do list.

    I have a Nikon D40 + 2 lenses (I don’t have them with me and I know NOTHING about photography, but I think they’re 18-55 and 55-200 or something of the sort???). It has only been used once.

    If you want it, drop me a line and we can figure out details of $ etc. I’d be happy to do a cheapish deal for you 🙂

      Hey thanks for the offer! That’s really generous! However I really need to replace mine with a Canon, because two of my lenses didn’t get stolen and they are Canon mounts and one of them is a really excellent lens. Plus I don’t really have money together yet to do that lol.

      But thank you so much for the really kind offer!! 🙂
