Happy holidays!

Hello everyone! I forget how many years I've been posting here (three or four?) but I'm always excited to come back and see what wishes I can grant as well as post a wishlist of my own. I'm Nashay. I'm a 28 year old artist who is currently two semesters into an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts degree at Goddard College. I am in love with all things paint and fiber, and lots of other things besides. Onto my list!

Teas. Whether it is in bags or looseleaf, I love tea and have been wanting to try new varieties. 
Tea mug with infuser. Something like this one, for loose-leaf teas.
Yarn. I'm a new-ish knitter and have been wanting to build my stash. I have no fiber allergies and am still experimenting to find out my favorite fiber types. I would really love this blanket kit.
Knitting Needles. Specifically, Knit Picks nickel-plated interchangable circular knitting needles.
Gift Certificates to Dick Blick (art supplies), Knit Picks and Loop (yarn).
Academic Advice. As I mentioned above, I am currently a grad student in the arts. My research interests are truly interdisciplinary; I am researching monologue and storytelling, feminism, sexuality, sexual orientation, gender, and LGBT culture in African American communities. My primary media are painting, printmaking, and mixed media. I'd like to apply for a Fulbright grant someday, as well as get a Ph.D in Africana Studies (I'm most interested in Brown University's program, because of its interdisciplinary nature). But how do I get to those goals from where I am now?
Website Design Help. I have no portfolio website. None of the template based sites I've seen seem quite right. Can you help me design something that would be just right for me, that I could learn to maintain?
My Wishlist. Used is fine, as are Kindle versions of books (if available).
Candy and chocolates from everywhere! Nothing with coconut, dark chocolate, licorice or banana flavoring please.
LGBT pride stuff. Buttons, pins, jewelry, whatever! I'm really proud of the person I am, why not show it?

If you'd like my address, please send me a PM. Thanks everyone and happy holidays to you and yours!
