Remember this prompt, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?
Of course I would want to save everything. I don’t want a fire to happen. But if I will be in that situation, I will not be able to save these even if I wanted to.
- My clothes
I don’t have any clothes back home. Everything that I wear is at my current place which I rent. I couldn’t afford buying my own clothes before. I use the old clothes of my sisters. What I have now, I worked hard to buy them.
- My books
I have a few books that I haven’t finished reading and some that I hadn’t started reading.
- My television set
I did not buy my TV and DVD player. They were given to me. As much as I want to save them, the television is just so heavy and the player has lots of wires attached to it.
- My bed and everything on it
I’m just sleeping on a small sofa bed which I lay on the floor every night. I want my bed because I don’t want sharing a bed with others. I only want my pillow beside me.
- My electric fan
My fan got broken before and I was struggling to sleep in hell for a night. Manila’s weather is more or less 30 degrees celsius. That’s too hot!
