Remember yesterday, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?
I overpack, and I hoard. There are a lot of things inside our room that I think I need, and I actually do not. I am sure that if my room was on fire and I could only take five items, I would regret not being able to take several others.
My Favorite Book
I am a bookworm, and I often drown myself in books. I have a pile of books that I am yet to read. I cannot really decide which one is my favorite, and I do not even know if I have a specific favorite (maybe all of them are my favorite). I would love to save them all from the fire, if I could. If I were to choose which one I would save from the fire, I would probably grab the one that has touched me the most, the one that I feel very akin to, the one that made me feel like I am part of the world, the one that welcomed me with open arms—The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan. This book made me feel like a child again, and the best part is, this is where all the characters from his previous Greek and Roman series convene; this is a convention of all my favorite demigods.
My Fandom Trinkets
I am a fanboy, a huge fanboy. I buy a lot of fandom trinkets from all my fandoms; I have hoodies, shirts, pendants, journals, pins, posters, and many other things. For me, they are a representation of my passionate love for literature and other forms of arts. It would be a shame if I lose them in a fire.
My Old Planners and Journals
These are my old notebooks and planners where I write significant events and things that happen to me on a daily basis, as well as prompts for writing, and other unpublished works. These are representations of my memory, my sentiments, and my thoughts. From time to time, I look back to them and read them, fill myself with nostalgia and even melancholy. Losing them is like losing a part of me, a part of me that I would never want to let go.
My rucksack is the latest bag I bought for myself. Like I said, I overpack, and this bag helps me with that. Aside from that reason, this bag also is, by far, the most aesthetic bag I have (at least for my standards). It meets both beauty and functionality that one could ask for in a bag.
I have four pairs of eyeglasses, each of different frame style, color, and design. I wear a pair every day, and I carry one in my bag just in case I forget to wear one before leaving home. The reason I have four, actually, is more of vanity—I would like my eyeglasses to match what I wear. If the other three pairs burn with my room, it would be a great inconvenience for me to only have one pair, lest I forget them before leaving, and I would have to survive the day being technically blind (I have myopic astigmatism). My concern is more of my vision more than my vanity.
