This Newsletter’s Discussion!

In life, every good adventurer has an object they seemingly can’t live without! From Eleven’s Eggo Waffles (Stranger Things), Lyra’s Compass (The Golden Compass), and Hermione Granger’s time turner (Harry Potter) to Amelia Earhart’s classic Lockheed Electra, we want to know what your signature item is! Has it been with you for years? Why does it give you confidence? We want to know the story about you and your symbol! To submit an answer to this question, simply fill out the information below, and we will have it approved and posted in no time!


MMGagne: “I have this small atom necklace that I wear with me all the time! It gives me huge levels of confidence, and even when things get a little complex, it remains a constant in my life- a reminder that I am still me no matter what!”

Somebody_once_told_me: “Haha I’m a glasses wear-er so I have a very special pair of glasses I only use on stressful occasions- I love how shiny they are and how I only get to use them every once and a while.”

Dihydrogen Monoxide: “Lol it’s not much but I have this pair of lucky constellation socks that seriously make me s happy. Whenever I have a huge presentation or test at school, I wear them and it makes me feel so much better”.

StarWarsIsLife: “I once won $100 from a scratch of ticket! I kept the quarter I used to scratch it off and it remains my lucky coin to this dayyy! I even got a hole punched in it, and I sometimes wear it around my neck!!!!”

[Entire bee movie script]: “Yoooo I can get behind this. My mom gave me this necklace with a turtle on it when I was 5. Turtles always seem super calm under pressure, so I wore it the first time I went to a huge amusement part and rode a big roller coaster. After that, it worked as my good luck charm! Never fear, turtles are here!”
