Continuing the tradition from last year, I’ve written my latest unreasonable Christmas list. My wants have diminished a bit since last year…no jets or private submarines on the list this year 🙂 As before, if there are any benevolent billionaires or uber-millionaires out there who would like to make a poor kid’s dreams come true, feel free!
#1 – All of our debts paid off – $62,000: Honestly, I can’t think of anything that I want more than this right now. With my wife unemployed and almost all of my net income going to debt repayment, this tops the list! I accept PayPal.
#2 – A Job Making >$80,000/yr: This is the median income for someone with my experience in the Internet marketing industry (5 yrs, worked with Fortune 500 companies). It would be nice to finally work for a company that actually pays me what my knowledge and experience are worth.
#3 – My Dream Home – $1,950,000: Yes, I do have expensive taste, but this house is absolutely awesome. Follow the link and click on the Property Tour button to see why!
#4 – Audi R8 V10 R-Tronic w/ Options – $165,000: This car is one of the finest automobiles in the world. 520hp, 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. This is my dream car.
#5 – An Honorary Doctorate Degree: One of my goals in life is to become a professor of religion at Brigham Young University. It is a subject that fascinates me. Unfortunately, I did a year of college and absolutely hated it. The pace was vastly too slow for me, and there was an unreasonable amount of busy work. So, the only way I will ever be a professor anywhere is if a college grants me an honorary PhD (or perhaps a DD, Doctor of Divinity?). Pretty please with a cherry on top…
#6 – Samsung 55″ LED LCD TV Model # UN55B8500 – $4,000: This TV is cutting edge, and has one of the most beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen. I love movies, so this would be my dream TV…at least until someone manufactures a TV with 4k resolution…
#7 – Ultrasone Edition 9 Headphones – $1,400: I’m something of an audiophile, and these headphones are supposedly the best in the world. Cheaper than box seats to some events…
I’m sure this list could go on and on, but I’ll cap it here. Truth be told, if I could just have #1 and #2, I’m sure I could get the rest myself within 3-4 years. While money doesn’t buy happiness, it does help to relieve stress and frees up the time needed to do more of the things that do bring true happiness.
Anywho, Merry Christmas, and if Santa or some wealthy benefactor deigns to grant one of my Christmas wishes, I’ll be one happy camper!
