When I was young, I once had a necklace that I always wore. It was a necklace given to me by my dad, whom I have never met before. It had a gold chain with Buddha as the pendant, while many people thought it was a Christmas tree. The necklace was something I always wore, whether it was to bed, the shower, or playing sports. As I aged, the necklace began to shrink. In reality, I began to grow and my neck began to grow bigger making my size a bit too big for the necklace. I wore it all the way to my first year of college, before having to take it off. I only took off my necklace four times in my life, and now I no longer wear it. It’s in a safe space, and I always bring it with me when I have big days (exams, tests, interviews, etc.) as a good luck charm.
