A dream is a wish your heart makes

My heart aches a little about a cel so I’m going to write in this blog. There’s this cel that I’ve been helplessly staring at the past few months. No it’s not that great of a cel but it “speaks” to me and just laughs everytime I look at it. Since a couple of things came up, is coming up etc… I made a command decision to really go after this cel so I took the plunge and offered an almost ridiculous amount of money for it. Well ridiculous for me, although I’ve offered to some before it wasn’t like this one. This cel tortured the heck out of me. And don’t be worried it’s not an RS or Beta member so I don’t think or I hope I’m not offending people here… But the cel tortured me and I guess still continue to do so.

Needless to say this afternoon I finally got a reply… Time difference sometimes suck and all the holidays too. LOL… When you can’t sleep and you run over to your e-mail everytime it did that “beep” thingy. *sigh* I can understand why this person would not let go of the cel… It is a very beautiful cel and probably speaks to the person too. To be honest I already knew the person was going to say no, there are just some cels that are priceless. I can name quite a few in my own gallery that I would find hard letting go of. I just thought I’d try and try HARD and beat the annoying voice in my head that chants, “it’s only plastic”. Plus I have a very BAD HABIT. When I don’t get what I want, I tend to go and buy other things, that just take me further from my goals. Well all hope is not lost… I sensed a non-definiteness in their answer, unfortunately my hope of finding a sequence is nil as I think it’s an A1-End cel. *sigh* I should probably take that cel off as my wallpaper… *chuckles* For now at least… Maybe next year will be a better year. There’s a couple I am eyeing at the moment too and they look pretty good, with my dream cel a definite “no” at least it gives me a bit more freedom to consider other things. My dream cel will just be a wish… FOR NOW. *contemplates of getting bigger guns to make it fall down*

*sigh* But you know that really would’ve made my Christmas perfect. But ah oh well… At least I got good presents this Christmas. Thanks to my Santa. ^__^ Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry Christmas! I hope you''ll eventually get your dream! ^_^

And oh, don''t I know about the spending the money on other things when you don''t get the one you actually wanted!!! ~_^

Thanks Leah! It''s a little of a bummer to be posting this just hours before XMAS ah but I just had to get it out so I can enjoy the midnight dinner.

Oh so it''s not just me who goes in a buying tissy eh? It''s like a bucketful of ice cream after a broken heart... It''s ummm not good so this time I''ll try to be smart. ^__^

Good luck on resisting, because giving in would take away money from something else that could pop up any day. One of the fun (and occasionally painful) things about this hobby is that you never know what is going to turn up. It''s not like video games or figures, etc. where you know when something is going to be released months in advance.

Offers...I hate making unsolicited offers, because you never know if they''ll piss the person off. However for something that truly interests you, you''ll never know unless you try. At least this person will remember you in the future now, if they ever change their mind.

Merry Christmas!

Yep I''m going to need all that luck. XD

Making an offer is quite hard, but this was a person I''ve dealt with before so they were very nice. On the few occasions I''ve made offers the people were very courteous... Of course I don''t make offers lightly. I usually think I have only one shot if I make an offer so the offer better be a good one, plus if a cel is that good it should have a good offer too. ^__^*** Just my opinion tho.

Happy holidays!

*hugs* I''m so sorry it didn''t work out for you this time. But, at least you know you didn''t just let that cel pass you buy without trying for it. That counts for something, right? Plus, if the person who owns it decides to sell it, they know you are interested now. Maybe they will contact you. Second chances really do happen in this hobby. I hope you are able to add that cel to your gallery one day! *hugs*

Thanks Tex-chan! Well we can''t win them all and I feel better now that it''s not hanging over my head and this blog thing really helped out. Poor friend of mine got most of the grunt after my initial "shock". LOL! Kind of happy too since now brown bag lunches for me for now. XD *hugs back* But yes someday it will or something better will grace this gallery.

Never give up on those dreams. It''s what makes this hobby so worthwhile. ^_^ Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
