Three Wishes and Celebrity Dinner Party

DSC_0204This is a random picture of Chester for this post, but I always feel like I have to post a picture.  OCD, what can I say?

Anyway, a follower, who goes by suzie81, suggested a few fun and interesting post ideas that I’d like to tackle.

The first suggestion was, “what would you do with 3 wishes?”

Well, I will list these out for you 🙂 Here it goes:

  1. I wish I was fluent in Korean.  So many barriers in my life would be solved by this one thing.  I’ve tried and tried over the years to learn it, but of course it’s very difficult for adult learners to become fluent in a language, which is why children are so incredible.  If given the opportunity, please teach your children ages infant to five a second language!  That’s when the brain is still experiencing a large amount of plasticity and the neurons are yet to be pruned.  Prime language learning time!  This was my major, so I find this stuff very, very interesting. I could write a lot more, but I’ll spare you.
  2. I wish to have no debt, or at least enough money to get out of debt.  This is a selfish wish, but I wish, like most people, to have a lot of money.  Let’s be honest, money may not provide happiness, but it sure as heck can lead to it.  Debt is a major source of unhappiness and I will be buried in student loans until I’m 40.  Yay to the US federal loan program for allowing me to get so easily in debt 🙂
  3. I wish that everyone in the world would know the meaning of acceptance, not just tolerance.  I’d say world peace, but that’s super cliche and pageanty.  In my mind, the concept of world peace stems from acceptance of everyone from all cultures, ethnic backgrounds, religions, basically any walk of life.  I wish this because I feel that this is nearly impossible right now for us humans to do by ourselves.

Suzie81 also suggested that I write about the “ultimate celebrity dinner party: who would I invite and why?”  

Now, I had to think about this. I don’t typically follow celebrities because I realize that they are just regular people who happened to make it big.

Here’s my guest list:

  1. Norman Reedus, AKA Darryl from the Walking Dead. He’s my one true celebrity crush.  I shall not say more.
  2. Zooey Deschanel. I think she’s cute, funny and has the best sense of style. I think we could be good friends 🙂
  3. Jackson Galaxy. Not sure he’s really considered a celebrity, but he’s the cat behaviorist from My Cat from Hell. I think he’s awesome and I appreciate what he does to save cat-family relationships.
  4. Chris Hemsworth AKA Thor. He shall come, but under one condition: no shirt.
  5. Henry Cavill AKA Superman. See #4.
  6. Everyone from The Office. I will forever and always be indebted to these people for making me laugh for half an hour every Thursday for 9 years.

Alright, so that’s my celebrity dinner party list.  I know all of these suggestions are pretty superficial, but I’m not huge into meeting celebrities.

I’m actually lmao thinking about this in actuality.  Please, just take a moment to think about this and you’ll probably be thinking how hilarious it would look too.  Hahaha!

Thanks for the suggestion suzie81 🙂

Hope everyone had fun with this because I did.  Feel free to suggest any wishes or celebrities that come to your mind 😛

  1. I enjoyed this post. Thank you and thanks for Suzie81 for suggesting this. I really liked your point of acceptance and not just tolerance, I always say this to people.

  2. If OCD means we get more photos of Chester that’s fine by me 🙂 And arrrgh to student debt. Even here it is so easy to get in to student debt but so hard to shake off. I was lucky to do my study at a time when it was completely free and we were given a student allowance as well.

      1. its good now but my keyboard has messed up keys and the monitor is detached so i hold it up with a skateboard.

  3. Ha ha to funny but why am i not on that guest list .okay that would just be a selfish wish.
    keep smiling. And nothing selfish about making a wish or 2 for you out of the 3 still one for every one else. They should be happy and accept it or else tolerate 😀

  4. My Heart jumps into my throat every time I see Chester. He looks so much like my Tigger who is now over the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for giving your Chester such a good life!!
    Love,
    Amy

      1. Actually, Tigger has since returned as a feral cat, who responds to TT as a name, and he, just like Tigger, is now glue to my heart. Same mannerisms. Same energy. Same behaviors. Same trot. TT even is part tabby and his back’s markings are exactly as Tigger’s. Tigger had a very unusual pattern where his “privates” are. TT same exact pattern. When I look at Chester that is what Tigger looked like. He was a brown tabby. Now TT, has white on him. I’m planning on writing a story about TT on my blog soon. I will let you know when I do. Make sure you grab a tissue. 🙂 All my Love to you, Amy PS I like you am obsessed with cats. Felines. So mysterious, so ultimately cool. 😀 PSS Please excuse the lack of wishes. I really even haven’ thought of having wishes. Perhaps I shall and let you know. (((HUGS)))

  5. What a great post! I am totally with you on wishes #2 and #3. As far as #3 is concerned, can you believe I had an ex (a very long time ago) who said to me that when he states he loves someone, it really means that he has learned how to tolerate them? Boy, if he treats someone he supposedly loves that way, imagine how he treats people he doesn’t like! Thank God I ditched that idiot when I did. As for #2, I have a ton of student loans that I am still paying off, even though I graduated well over a decade ago. As far as #1 is concerned, I’m already teaching my son my native language (Romanian) and hope to add French and German to that list as the years go on. My stepson (who’s 14 years old) told me that he thinks my son is getting confused by hearing both English and Romanian spoken on a daily basis and that it might be delaying his speech development. Well, I dispelled that notion very quickly and even found these really great articles to support my statement http://www.multilingualliving.com/2010/04/23/bilingualism-cause-language-delay/

    Keep working on your Koren, and you’ll get it, even though you’re an adult it’s so very different from English to boot!

    As for your celebrity guest list, “The Office” has to be one of favorite shows of all time.

    1. The ex boyfriend sounds like an idiot and how could anyone say that to the person they are dating? Terrible. As far as teaching your children multiple languages, it is absolutely false that they will have any delays in speech or language development. I actually have a BA in speech language pathology, so I know a bit about this 🙂 There’s actually a number of studies proving that individuals who are multilingual have higher IQ’s. Definitely keep up the great work in teaching your son your native language. It’s important now and he’ll appreciate it so much when he’s older 🙂

      PS The Office is my all time favorite show 🙂

  6. I work in an affluent area of Sydney (Australia) and am surrounded by people with lots of money. I feel that a great deal of them are not as happy as people assume. You mentioned you wish people knew the meaning of acceptance. People need to accept themselves firstly, and I think that that’s the hardest thing in the world. I was diagnosed with depression as a child/early teen, and acceptance of myself has been the main thing I have struggled with. But when people accept themselves, first and foremost, they can then accept others for who they are. We are who and what we are. I really enjoy your blog, Megan. Student debt sucks, and I wish I was fluent in Japanese 🙂
