Since Christmas just left us, and my birthday is in a couple months, I have been thinking a bit about gifts. I have not technically gotten a Christmas gift yet (my parents do not think it is as important anymore. All I wanted was access to their American Express for Amazon.com purchases and a jigsaw puzzle. Since I already have access to their credit cards for such purposes, all they had to do was go to Wal-Mart and get me a jigsaw puzzle. But no).
My sixteenth birthday is coming up soon, and as I reflected upon attending my friend’s sixteenth last week, the only reason I would ever have a sweet-sixteen party is because of the gifts. However, I was only joking then. Honestly, I do not need gifts, really. My parents do not really limit what I am allowed to buy, and buy clothes, food, books, and all other necessities (or not) for me.
Even though there is still a month and a half to go, I have decided what I want my parents, at least, to do. I want them to donate money to charity. I have been thinking about it, and I do not see the point in getting them to spend an extra thirty or forty dollars on something a) I would be getting anyway, or b) is not really necessary.
The only decision left for me to make is to decide to which charity my money will go. I am not sure, so any input is welcome. Also, I am wondering what Adrika got for her birthday (We got you the iTunes giftcard, but I kind of forgot what your parents gave. Did anyone else give you anything?).
On my TED adventures (which, by the way, stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design), I encountered the cuuuuutest (yes, it requires that many “u”s) thing ever. Watch it. It is so sweet. :)
