Sharing the wishes

Greetings! I'm Jenny, a geeky 22 year old heritage student from Sweden who currently studies in Bournemouth, UK. (I live in England, but spend the holidays in Sweden.) This'll be my second year with this community, and I'm awfully excited about it. :) Hopefully I can make many wishes come true this year! Here are my wishes for the year.


1. Bookmooch points. I'm a big fan of Bookmooch, and I try to use it as much as I can, both giving and receiving. If you're a fellow moocher, I'd love some extra Bookmooch points so that I can get even more books when the urge arises. :) My username is jenniology, for the record.

2. Holiday cards. I really love receiving cards for the winter holidays, so if you have some spare cards, feel free to send one my way. Other cultures or "unsusual" holidays are especially fun themes! I'm not offended by religious motifs at all - being a bit of an interfaith fan - and I welcome absolutely any card you'd like to send me. If you have a preference as to whether to send a card to Sweden or England, let me know - I don't mind whichever address you end up using, one will just be slower for me to notice any goodies at.

3. Tea bags. I love black tea, and as part of my 101 goals in 1001 days, I aim to try a different tea each day for at least one month. I only have half the amount necessary yet, so please send me any variety of tea you have on hand! Just make sure it has no lemon or orange in it, as I'm allergic to those. :)

4. Pair of mannequin hands. This is a strange wish! Thing is, I'd like to display my growing collection of rings, rather than put them away in my jewellery box. That's how I started to think that a pair of mannequin hands would be amazingly good for this purpose. So if you happen to stumble across any, please keep me in mind!

5. Rings. Related to the wish above, obviously. :) I'd love some more rings - I'm not fussed about material or colour, to be honest. I have quite large fingers, though. However, I have made an effort to size my fingers recently, and here are the various (US) sizes I'm looking for. If you have any pretty rings in those sizes that you wouldn't mind giving away, I'd be absolutely thrilled!

6. A book in German. Another one of my 101 goals is to read a book in German. However, my German is terribly out of date, and as such, I'd like an easy read. A childrens or young adults book might be worth a shot. :) I'm happy to give anything easy-to-moderate a try.

7. Albums by singers/bands I haven't heard of. I really need to expand my musical horizons, so I'm asking for people to introduce me to bands or singers I haven't listened to before - preferably by lending or giving me an album by them. Obviously you'd have to ask me if I've heard their music before, since you probably don't know my taste in music - go ahead, suggest anything! Surprise me.

8. Sweets. In particular, I'm always looking for Stride Sweet Cinnamon Gum (which I can't find in Europe, alas), and Banana & Cream Creme Savers. :)

9. Gift cards. Being a student, gift vouchers or gift cards make an enormous difference in my life. Particularly helpful are ones for Waitrose, Asda or Boots.

10. Anything from my HintBug wishlist. You can always be sure to make my day brighter by getting me something from my wishlist. It doesn't have to be big or expensive - anything goes.


Thanks for looking. :) If you'd like to contact me, please feel free to e-mail me at sanity dot lost at gmail dot com!

Happy holidays! <3
I sent you some Bookmooch points!

What kind of music do you usually listen to?
Thank you SO much! :)

And I listen to a bit of everything - alternative, rock, instrumental/soundtrack, pop, folk... I'm easy to please like that. :)
Gave you some Bookmooch points!

I can send you some tea bags in different flavors! Would you mind emailing me your address at

I have a CD of a band that hardly anyone has heard of because they're only popular in the Florida area. I live in Massachusetts and nobody I know here has ever heard of them either. I'd love to send it to you. I can burn mine. Send me an LJ PM with your address and I will send the burned copy to you!
Sure, why not! E-mail or PM me your address and I'll do the same. :) What do you celebrate?
Thank you! Someone has already offered to send me a book in German, but I wouldn't mind another one. :)
drop me a pm with your addy and ill drop a card in the mail for ya :)
I could definitely get you some tea :) I don't have any specials, so I'm not sure if you could use them for you 101 in 1001 project. But at least you can drink them ;) Of course they'll come with a christmas card.

As for music, I listen to pretty mainstream bands. My all time favorite band is The Fray. If you haven't heard from them, you should definitely give them a listen (albums: 'The Fray', 'How to Save a Life' and 'Reason EP'.)
Lately I got into Death Cab for Cutie, which is really good, too. Some other talented bands/singers I'd like to recommend are: Tyler Hilton, Travis, Augustana, Laura Marling, Jack's Mannequin, Meese, Sondre Lerche, the Damnwells.
I hope some of those are new to you :) And that you will like them.

Could you please reply to this comment, so that I can find you back later on?
You can check these bands/musicians out on youtube or something, and if you find something you like, I could upload some albums for you. I don't like giving my albums away, since they are one of the most precious things in my life ;-)
Yay! I'm sorry about the belated reply, life has been crazy.

I'd love both tea and music! I haven't heard any of those except for Tyler Hilton and Travis. :)
