I’m proud of myself for going beyond the first “dishes sitting piled in the sink like always” image that popped into my head for this theme and actually choosing a dish that has some meaning to it.
This mug came from my parents house, it was always my favorite mug when I younger, and I took it when I left for college. I’ve always seen it as a sort of metaphor for my own personality. It’s pretty and girly with roses on it, but it has a few flaws here and there and it leans to one side, can’t even stand up straight. This became appropriate when I found out that I have one leg shorter than the other by just a bit.
Since coming to college, it has been damaged even more, and now has a hairline crack down the side that ever so slightly drips, so it isn’t as functional as it was previously. Still, I like to keep it around as a reminder that we all have a few flaws here and there.
