Things I Always Have With Me

Or at least, almost always. These things are in general somewhere around if I’m there, and not having them often makes me nervous. Of course I’m not including the logic stuff such as an ID and money.

1. My Rings

I have three rings I wear daily. As soon as I put them on, I know I’m supposed to be awake. How could I possibly start my day without them? That’s near to imossible. One of them I’ve been wearing for about 5 years now – which for a young person as me is really much.

2. Earrings

I so love earrings. They’re the easiest way to change an outfit. If you know where to look they’re not even expensive. I feel like they are like a framework for my face, and I like the way they feel. When I’m in public and not wearing earrings, either I really really forgot, or I feel very bad. There is no other option. I’ve got a nice little collection by now, so I can always vary. That’s so nice.

3. Water

Preferably 1,5 l. I always carry water around, unless I go out (then I assume we’ll go somewhere you can buy drinks). Water is my thing. While other people in my class keep bying coke or that kind of thing, I’m drinking my water. It just feels a lot safer. What if you get thirsty? Imagine! It’s such a horrific idea that I always need my bottle. Give me my bottle and I feel safe.

4. Chewing gum

Imagine having bad breath – ew. I don’t want to be one of the people about whom the others say her breath smells, but she doesn’t realize. And I like mint. It helps to get the taste of food get away. Sometimes it’s really annoying to keep on ‘tasting’ the food you’ve had. I’m kind of an addict by now, but hey, I could be addicted to drugs as well, so I don’t think this is too bad.

5. Tissues

You never know when you catch a cold or spill something or whatever. These little packs of tissues are everywhere in my bags. Just in case.

 

What are you always carrying around and for what reason?

Distincting vagueness

Get up.

Go to a nearby lake, or sea, or puddle.

Watch it.

Stretch out your hand.

Touch the water.

Put your hand in the water.

Try to hold it.

It will escape.

Try better.

Squeeze it.

Cherish it.

Claw.

Take a deep breath.

Is it worth it?

Is it worth trying?

Or is it in vain? Useless? To no avail?

Answers.

If only you knew whether you’re wasting your time or not.

It would definitely be interesting to know for sure.

Perhaps you could give up in time.

There’s also a chance though, that it isn’t useless at all.

But you can’t be sure.

So get up.

Go to a nearby oracle.

Sacrifice something, offer it to the possibly existing gods.

Ask for the truth: yes, no, delete as appropriate.

Clearness, goddamnit.

Distinctness.

Would make things easier.

So get up.

Go to a nearby lake, sea, or puddle.

Stare at it.

Stretch out your hand.

Not to the water – to the person.

 

Ask.
