I have a locket that contains a picture of my grandmother and grandfather, who met and married during World War II. When my grandmother was killed in 1995, the family gave me the jewelry to remind me of her. I look at it often because it represents what is important to me: family heritage, a strong marriage, and passing down family stories to my own children. It also reminds me to let go of anger that I have against people; my grandmother and I argued just before she was killed, so I try very hard now not to let the sun go down on my anger. If I have something against someone, I handle it THAT DAY.

I have a small, inexpensive ring that means a great deal to me. As a child and young adult I often frustrated my mother and older sister because every time they gave me jewelry I would lose it. At some point they stopped buying jewelry for me. The little ring is the first piece of jewelry that I bought for myself, and I have kept it for many years. When my first granddaughter, #1, turns sixteen, I will give it to her.

I have a whole collection of bratz and if there was a fire i would probaly grab my bratz. Or if I couldnt grab that then I would grab my jewelry and finger nail polish and just anything I know I couldnt live without. All of the things that I would had grab in a house fire represents me because I can't live without my jewelry and my finger nail polish,like my jewerly is like my BEST FRIEND!. Like I just can't live without it. And for my bratz OMG! like I've had those things like forever. And like they don't even make bratz anymore,so do you not know how much money I could make off of selling them like alot. So those to things would be the first things I would grab in a house fire.(:

Something of mine that majorly symbolizes me is my computer. I am always wanting to learn more and better myself like my computer always wants the newest upgrade or software. It is important to me because of the information I have stored on it. Many of the things I do today I do on the computer whether it's surfing the internet, going on facebook, or just typing up a document. Because so much of my daily life is on the computer, I feel that it is also responsible for parts of my personality. If I ever had to choose between anything I own, I would always choose my computer.

A very important Symbolic object that I have at my house will be my Guitar. My Guitar represents who I am because I love music and it's my Passion. The other reason why the Guitar represents me is because I love playing instruments, I play Guitar, Bass, Piano, and Drums. I can play Guitar for hours and hours and not get tired. I always make new songs and stuff of that matter because I love learning new things on the Guitar. The Guitar represents the person I am because it shows the love I have for music.

I have in my dining room an embroidered table cloth that I bought at an open-air market in Budapest, Hungary when I taught there in 1995. It represents me because it is all the things I love: detail, color, intricacy, and craftsmanship. The woman who did the sewing sold me the piece, so when I see it, I see her, an impoverished Hungarian who sold me her handiwork for very little money. My longing to return to Hungary comes back to me every time I look at those black, red, purple, green, and yellow threads.

My favorite pink bean pillow that I sleep with every night is the thing that represents me, because it's soft and girly just like me. Without it I can't sleep. It's a part of me that I would never want to lose it.

The most important object in my life is my PS3 it is important to me because I send most of my time on it and I use it in order to dodge school work or just waste time. It represents me becuase I have a tendency to be lazy or just relaxed so when I play it I can usually be myself. Some days I just like to relax and play it whenever I am out of school or just tired of doing school work and chores, I find that I can actually think and focus better while relaxing, then when I do at school.

My Radio (music) represents me because, one of my life long dreams is to become a Dance/Instuctor Choreographer. I love to dance. I can play any music and I will automatically start dancing. That's why my radio is one of the things that symoblizes me, for my personality. I play and listen to certain songs that describes my mood thats why my mom can tell if there's something wrong with me at that point of time.

If there was a fire or something like that in my home the only thing I would want out of there would be a box that is under my bed. In the box there are really good memories about the places I have been the things that I have found and memories of my family. Some are good memory’s some are sad memories. There are things in the boxes from when I was a little girl. It has been a long time since I open up the box.

Something that represents me the most is my sterling silver ring with 8 diamonds. Because some of the characteristics it relates to me in a way. Like for instance its beauty,luminosity,and its independence. What I mean by independence is it doesn't need another ring on the hand because its unique all by itself.So that is what is valued with importance.

The item that represents me is my pure 24k diamond necklace because its like a symbol that states that i am bright and that i can do anything. the reason why i chose this is because my mom gave it to me for my birthday when i was 5 and i've had it ever sense.I like it beacause it was the one thing that kept me focus,positive,and ME. If we ever had a fire My necklace would be the first thing that i pick up first because its rare and not alot of people have it because i have got it from my great great great grandmother that died before i was born so thats why it is so special to me.

I have a gold necklace that I always wear. Its very important to me and it reprsents who I am. For the fact that its a gold heart which I say means I have a heart of gold. If you really knew me you would know that. It represents how strong I am, how loving I am and how I love for real. Also I love to heal broken hearts even when my own is broken. If I was to ever lose my necklace I would be so sad. Also because my mother gave it to me so its special.
