Wednesday Randomness: Top 10 Things I Want But Don’t Need

I’m still pretty under the weather, but I said I was going to blog this week, so darn it, I’m gonna. 🙂 I don’t know that I can come up with ten things, to be honest, but I’ll give it a wack.

I don’t NEED it, but man I want it. And love it. 🙂

Never enough washi…Yeah I have a problem.

Yes, yes, YES! 🙂

Another trip to the UK and Ireland. I mean, I’d argue that I need it but apparently I won’t die withough it…whatever.

And that’s it from Sick!Jess because my brain is seriously offline. But tell me what you want that you don’t necessarily need. Then, make sure to head over to Bron’s blog to see what she came up with for this Top 10.

Wednesday Randomness – Top 10 Fairytales

This post actually isn’t going to be a Top 10 from me. I love fairytales…mostly the more recent Disney-fied versions because the originals are gruesome. LOL But it is the night before the blog post is going live, it’s been a hellish day, and I’m fighting a migraine. So, I’m going to share my favorite fairytale and go to bed.

Wednesday Randomness: Top Ten – Road Trip Essentials

1 – Money. No brainer, right? For gas, snacks, drinks, any fun things you want.

2 – Sunglasses. A huge must for me.

3 – Mountain Dew. I have caffeine needs, okay? I like coffee just fine but I’d be stopping at every rest area and gas station along the way if I drank that much coffee.

4 – Google Maps. (or any map – app or physical) So I make it to my destination.

5 – Snacks. I go for the crunchy, salty goodness, every time.

6 – Music. I rely heavily on my Spotify app during road trips. Gotta have my playlists!

7 – A fully functional spare tire (and the knowledge to remove the flat and put the spare on LOL)

8 – Hand sanitizer. Because do NOT trust that a roadside rest area will have any, my friends.

9 – Car charger for phone. Because, well, Google Maps and Spotify won’t do me much good without the charger.

10 – Company. Not that I haven’t taken road trips on my own, but when I’m on my own, I’m usually talking to somone on the phone (hands-free of course!) I love my “me time” but on a road trip? Need some company and conversation.

Wednesday Randomness – Top 10: Disney Movies

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another Top 10. This month is all about Disney movies.

I’m sure my list will be vastly different than others. It was difficult to choose, to be honest. In the end, I picked the ten Disney movies that have special meaning to me – for various reasons. 🙂

In no particular order…

  

And a couple honorable mentions, because I have no shortage of love for Disney movies…

Wednesday Randomness: Top 10 Gifts for Writers

I can only speak for myself of course, but I’m gonna share my writerly wish list. Some of these will be very general and some specific.

In no particular order:

Books – Fiction books, books on craft, books on self-publishing and promotion… Doesn’t matter. I will take ALL THE BOOKS. 🙂

Notebooks – I’ve never met a notebook I didn’t like. Well, that’s not true. But regardless of how much or little I like a particular notebook, it will never be wasted. I have them and use them everywhere and can always use more.

Pens – I have a problem with pens. I have so many and will always always get more. From simple ball point pens to fancy fountain pens…I want them all. And when I find a pen that writes well…I stock the F up. In a big way.

Comfy seating – So, I don’t have an office – comes with having a houseful of kids and family. So I want this

to be able to write in bed without my back paying me back for days afterwards.

Booze – Wine, cider…I’m not pick. And this…I honestly want this just for the name/bottle, but I do like a good splash of whiskey. 

New computer – While my trusty MacBook is trudging along, I would love a new computer, right now.

The last three? Not gonna lie – come straight from my Etsy wishlist.

Wednesday Randomness: Top 10 Things I Believe to be True

Happy Novemember!

We have a top ten today. Top 10 Things I Believe to be True.

10 – It’s never too late to change.

9 – And change is necessary. (Even though it will be hated and resisted)

8 – You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.

7 – Miracles happen.

6 – You are drawn to the people meant to be in your life.

5 – It’s okay to ask for help.

4 – The relationships I have – with my husband, my children, my other family, my friends – are worth putting the time and effort into. They are worth fighting for…every single day.

3 – There is more good than not in the world – even if the good is more quiet/hidden than it should be.

2 – In the face of questionable or horrific action, being silent is as bad as or sometimes worse than making excuses for that behavior.
