Want it, Need it, Gotta Have it!

Do you know how sometimes you see something and just think to yourself "I have to have this."  Well, this happens to me pretty much on a daily basis.  Since today is Friday the 13th and college starts back Monday, I wanted to end it with something cheery (kind of) - a wish list!

I love wish lists.  It gives me something to look forward to buying and if I ever need inspiration to do something, I tell myself if I do ________ then I can get one item off my wish list.  It works miracles, believe me!

Anyways, this is likely going to be an ongoing entry whenever I feel like updating it.  By the way, I am going to try to be better about updating this blog in general.  I need a schedule, or chart, or something.  For all of you who keep blogs, what kind of tips do you have for me to keep me up to date?  I would LOVE to hear your feedback/advice!  

1.  Things Remembered - 2 GB Gunmetal USB Pen - $45.00
What do I love about this item?
Well, for someone who thinks it's important to always have a pen on you, what better way of doing this than to have a pen that breaks apart and becomes a USB drive?  I'm a college student and USB drives are so great to have because they hold a good amount of information and they are small.  However, their size is also a flaw because I can't tell you how many I've lost.  This pen... solves that.  Oh, and also, you can personalize it.

2. Amazon Kindle WiFi - $189
What do I love about this item?
I have debated for months, maybe even years, whether or not I like reading digitally.  I consider myself to be old fashioned in regards to books and think there's nothing greater than flipping through pages of a good novel.  I also used to think that looking at a screen, such as on an E-Reader would give me headaches.  However, I've been reading a lot on my cell phone and, well, no headaches!  Now seeing the convenience of having e-books, especially now that libraries are jumping on board, I think it's time I jumped on board too.  Also, if you check out an e-book from the library directly onto your reader, it automatically gets returned in 21 days, making it impossible to get late fees! yay!
