So I didn’t intend to post today but while cleaning out one of my drawers, I came across some random stuff which I thought would make for a pretty interesting blog post.
Here’s some of the more peculiar and cooler stuff that I found:
My high school tie
Idk, I guess my sentimental self never wanted to part with this. But now, five years out of high school, maybe it’s time I did.
My grade 11 sports day tshirt
For our high school sports day, each class was a different ‘house’ and each house was a country. We’d make banners and tshirts representing our house. In grade 11 my class was New Zealand. Here’s a pic of my personalised golfer:
An album containing photos of my 13th birthday 🎈
I couldn’t help but laugh as I looked back at my brace face self smiling awkwardly into the camera.
A couple of magazines I bought in high school for the sole reason that One Direction was on the cover and inside were their posters. Yes, I went through a directioner phase! #SorryNotSorry
You know those generic, computer-generated baby books we all have? The ones where they just alter a few things like your weight and your parents’ names and voilá, you have a baby book dedicated to you and you’re thrilled until you grow up a few years and realise it’s not all that special ‘coz practically everyone has them? Yup those ones.
But my parents also created another book for me in which they recorded my personal milestones. Turns out my first word was ‘ma’ and at 9 months I got my first tooth.
A Disney princess sticker book
I have no idea when or where I even got this from but they’re so cute! I especially love the Snow White ones (duh!).
Farewell and birthday letters/cards from primary school friends
These are always fun to re-read, a wave of nostalgia overcoming me with each letter I unfold.
Not just any rope, I got this one from a magician named Arthur when my local library hosted a magic show. He was looking for an assitant to perform a trick and little me was the lucky girl dressed in pink whom he called up. The trick was having to hold both ends of a piece of rope and tying a knot without letting go of either end. He let me keep the rope as a souvenir afterwards.
Surgical gloves and a mask
I’m pretty sure I got this from a podiatrist who gave it to me just for fun. Tbh this reminds me of high school bio lab experiments, back when holding a scalpel between your gloved fingers and dissecting an animal heart made you feel like a potential scientist. I guess if law doesn’t work out maybe I can dabble in science or the medical field…
Whenever I’m cleaning my room I think of this pic:
That’s why what should have been a 20 minute cleaning sesh turned into an hour🙈.
That’s it for today. Until next time,
