so, about this whole wishing thing. she always make wishes on 11:11, finding dandelions to make wishes on makes her very happy, birthday candles are the perfect excuse for them, and fallen eyelashes gives her one more chance to make that wish come true. of course, not all of the wishes she's ever made came true (she never did get to meet j.k. rowling..) and she doubts many of them ever will. but no matter how far-fetched they may seem to other people, she believed at the time that they were perfectly worth wishing for. heck, she killed a whole dandelion for that wish. and she's not one to kill anything without a perfectly logical excuse. but lately, she's been wishing for the exact same thing everytime it turns 11:11, whenever she catches a fallen eyelash, and if she happens to find a dandelion in the grass. and this time, her wish is perfectly logical...
the sun had finally risen on the morning of the new year and as i wake up, i find myself in a completely different position than i had fallen asleep in. not surprising. i was still groggy from staying up so late the night before (considering it was new year's eve) and don't really feel like getting out of bed. but then, instinctively, i look over at the clock to check the time. suddenly, I'M WIDE AWAKE. and what time was it, you ask? 11:11. so, of course, i make my wish. the same wish i've been making for the past...oh, i don't even remember. but i've been making this wish for quite a while now. could this be the ultimate sign? will my wish finally come true this year? it's a definite possibility. signs like these pretty much get my hopes up. so, i'm ready for a let down if it comes. but, i mean, come on. waking up on the first day of the new year at exactly 11:11 and making a wish that i've wanted to come true for the looooongest time right when i get up? can you say perfect timing?
