“It’s 11:11, make a wish!”

Brianna and Caitlyn are both really into the idea of making wishes at 11:11, no matter if it’s morning or night. I, on the other hand, am not.

I know that probably sounds surprising, especially since I have big, almost-impossible dreams. I try my best to think like a rational human being, but that doesn’t stop my heart from doing what it wants, you know? I think there will always be a bit of a dreamer in me.

But that doesn’t change the way that I feel about 11:11. Honestly, I think the idea is kind of stupid. A certain time of day isn’t going to magically do anything for me.

When we were in high school, Brianna once told me what she would wish about. She told me that at that magical time, every day, she’d wish for the same thing. Nothing ever came out of it. But she could have just told me what she did to get on my nerves, because she knew if the odds were to ever happen in her favor, that I would have been super annoyed.

I don’t really see the point in wishing for something like that. It’s like asking to win the lottery—chances are pretty slim, if you ask me.

I’m not trying to persuade anyone into not wishing at 11:11. Personally, I think if someone wants something, they’ll do it, regardless of what they’re told. It’s just my preference to not wish upon a time.

…wait a minute! Is that what that saying is supposed to mean? Consider myself mind blown.

But anyways, just because I don’t make wishes at 11:11, doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in making wishes. I think setting a time to it is kind of like a reminder for big dreamers, but I don’t think that the time of day changes the chances of your outcome. I just think it gives some people purpose to do so.

I wish on my own time.

Prompt: Do you wish for anything at 11:11? If so, what is it?
