- What My Possessions Say About Me
My Books/My Beloved Library Card
I love reading mystery, fantasy, adventure, paranormal and action books. For some reason though, I'm more comfortable reading children's books compared to young adult's/adult's books. Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway), I am a dreamer, a lover of stories and adventure. They can also symbolize my want of knowledge, particularly in biology, physics and chemistry. On a side note, I've recently just finished reading Ender's Game. 'Twas awesome.
We all love music, don't we? There are genres, artists and bands we adore and others that don't actually suit our tastes. Well, I've never met anyone who hates music in general. Anyway, my guitar can symbolize my (more than the usual person's) love for music and my drive and willingness to learn new things just because I want to.
My Box of Tea
I connect tea with relaxation and calm, something that people say I usually am. A friend once told me that if there was an earthquake, I'd probably be the only person in my class not screaming my head off while ducking for cover. Of course, I won't actually be all calm if there ever was going to be a cataclysmic catastrophe taking place, but yeah, I'd probably be one of the people least panicked.
The Water in My Water Bottle
I don't like overreaction. I mean, it's okay when people overreact to things in a good way but there are times when overreaction causes problems. I don't like fights. I don't like it when I have to deal with people who seem to be ready to chop off someone else's head off. It just disturbs me. Like how the water in my bottle is disturbed when I shake it and roll it around. The water sets down after a while and just like that, I value peace and tranquility. Um... I'm probably not making sense right now.
My Family and Friends
Well, for a lot of people, the family can influence a person the most. I'm one of those people. I am who I am today because of my dad, my mom, my little sister and little brothers. We see and acknowledge each others' strengths and try to help each other improve when we see weaknesses. We squabble and fight and disagree at times but we become better people afterwards. The same thing goes for my friends. I may not actually have many, but I think it's the quality that counts.
