Hi guys! So, first off, some logistics: I officially decided to skip Day 10 due to the fact that its prompt didn’t seem very August-related (Citrus-inspired craft? Really?). And the post yesterday about TUT was not only the first TV Tuesday post but also fulfilled the August – Day 9 prompt of the must-watch fall TV show, even though it doesn’t say “August – Day 9” in the title. Hence, we are all caught up now with Day 11! And the prompt for today is:

11. What’s on your Back-To-School Wishlist?

So, a little background information: I’ve had my black basic backpack since I was a senior in high school. The straps are starting to tear, the weight distribution leaves dents in my shoulders (and an ache in my back), and while it does have room for my laptop and some textbooks, it’s also prone to get very wet in the rain (and if you live in Texas like I do, having a wet laptop is never a good thing).

So, this particular backpack by HotStyle is number one on my wishlist for a multitude of reasons: it’s waterproof, lightweight, and still roomy enough for my multitude of school essentials. It may be a little price-y for a backpack, but considering what it’ll be used for, I’d consider it a good investment.


Now, I’m not the biggest fan of pink. Never have been, never will be. I’ve always considered pink to be an okay color, but not something that I would willingly strive for like other people would. This kind of pink, though, is adorable. And considering that this particular case is on Amazon for less than $10 is a steal.

Why not a keyboard case though? Well those are good too, except I already have a keyboard. So, this would be the perfect little add-on for my new iPad Air 2!


Don’t get me wrong: books like The Carpenter and tomorrow’s read (which I’m really excited to share with you guys) are fantastic, but I really, really want to read a book like this, one reason because I’ve read Eat, Pray, Love by the same author before and it was awesome. The other reason is because when I made the decision to start this blog, it wasn’t an easy decision. It’s no secret that very few people get to live off of their creativity, and if I want to be one of those people, I need to learn how to stop living with my fears.

I’m not going to go into a whole sermon about living my dreams and working to get to that point because that’s not the point of this whole post, however, I do want to ask one huge favor of you guys. I know I probably shouldn’t ask this because you guys have already done so much just by reading this, but I want to ask you guys one thing: ask yourself ‘if you weren’t concerned with money, what would you want to do?’ Just ask yourself that question. For me, that answer is writing, and I’m going to try my hardest to keep doing what I want to do and not worry about money.

What about you? What’s on your wishlist?
