so, I broke the necklace that I always wear… it was probably one of the first necklaces I ever got, it came with this dolphin pendant with my name on a grain of rice and I used to love it… So when I found the chain again in 2011, I thought I’d wear it again for the memories (I’m a sentimentalist) and since then, I’d had it on me nearly every single day. It was my lucky charm, especially being my fiddling tid bit when I was stressed or nervous. but last week, it snapped. the ring it clasped to, broke off. but I couldn’t throw it out (like my mum has been wanting me to for years…) so the other night I started knotting it in random places (and it snapped a couple times more. who knew metal chains could get so brittle? they do.) but I attached a new link as a loop and now its my lucky bracelet. it’s a bit like stars and a chaos of scribbles which have run away….but now I still have my lucky chain, a bit more interesting, a lot more fragile, and still with me for a while longer.
