Museum of Me: Untitled

Note/Sketch Book

Black and white marble. Indescribable scent. Tastes like air. Smooth surface. Sounds like WHOOSH when I flick the pages. My book is important to me because I write about sad times, I draw in it a lot when I’m bored or gloomy. I like to reflect after school in this specific book. 

My Bracelet

Blue, white and silver with a cross. Smells like metal. Feels rough against my finger tips. It tastes like blood. When I shake it, it goes JINGLE JINGLE. My bracelet is important to me because my Mum made it for me as a communion present. I wear it every day, I never take it off, and I like to fidget with it when I’m stressed, anxious, or bored. It is also three years old. 

Jiggly Puff

Pastel pink with teal blue eyes and a sphere. Smells like cupcakes. Feels as soft as a pillow. She tastes like fabric. Sounds very soothing once you put pressure on it. Jiggly Puff is important to me because I received it as a gift in Queensland from my parents at Build-a-Bear and I use it as a giant stress ball.
