Default I always carry

So yesterday we did a group activity in class, that I really liked. The activity is to search in your body, pocket, purse, for something of significance that I always have on me and what it means.

Examples of things students shared:

tattoo of a date - the date the person entered rehab for good
wedding rings, engament rings, class rings
scars from army/war
tattoo reminding them of deceased parent
pills because of illness
car keys to represent valued freedom
keychains
etc

Mine:
I always wear an open heart necklace my boyfriend got me for our first valentine's. I later got the matching earring for Christmas, but I only wear those on special occasions like anniversaries, Christmas, Birthday etc.

So search your belongings and share that item that is always with you and the meaning that it holds.

Default Re: I always carry

This is what I used to always carry in my wallet:

Una foto de un Santo.
Meaning: Back when I was a tax preparer, one of the sweetest clients (an older Mexican Woman) I've ever had gave me the picture of the saint. She said the picture will always protect me as long as I have it near me. I thought that was such a sweet gesture and kept it with me in my wallet all the time.

When my sister got extremely sick, I gave it to her and told her the same thing. I don't regret giving it to her and I'm glad it's protecting her now. She recovered and is now doing really good--married and all .
Seeing her sick was very hard on me and I don't think I've fully psychologically and emotionally recovered from it. But I'm glad that little saint is keeping her safe.

Then you don't ALWAYS wear it? So you kind of have to come up with something else.


Me, a knife at least %95 percent of the time. I feel a little naked without it/one. For protection, for utility purposes, ect. Never know when your going to need one. At work if i have limes, the plastic butter knife isnt as effective as mine.

I don't carry mine either. It's just the only thing that I can think of that has a lot of sentimental value.


Oooh wait. I also have some scars in the on my legs (the front part of my ankles you can say) that I "always" carry lol. I got those because I was a premature baby (born 4 months early), and had to have tubes connected to me up until I was 2 or 3. The scars stayed...well they're not really scars. I just don't know how else to explain them lol. I'm sure guys get the gist.

Default Re: I always carry

I always have this old video store card that has a pic of me when I first came to orange county which I always look at it to remind me of the old me.

My traveling card just in case I am in Mexico for some reason and I forget my passport.

A card of Santo Toribio Romo which I carry for personal reasons, but to give you the basics, it was given to me by a woman who raised me when my parents were too busy plus its hard to get a Santo Jenaro Sanchez Delgadillo card.

dont be so arrogant. The baby wipe movement is gaining a lot of momentum. I bet someone who invented and marketed a flushable, adult baby wipe that smelled like Polo Sport or Drakar Noir could clean up (no pun intended)

Also, I really enjoyed reading everyone else's items.

I also carry a knife with me 9 times out of 10. My glasses as well, about the only time I take them off is when I wash my face.

And I dont always carry these, but I also thought I was alone in the world on this one, but I prefer baby wipes over TP, especially that thin shit they have @ most establishments that dam near crumbles in your hand. When Im @ home I prefer to jump the shower real quick.

Why you smelling your own ass? Baby powder smell is fine and better to me. I get the HEB brand for a buck. I still use TP, but i incorporate the wipes as well.

You could always just spray your ass with it if it's that important?

I actually read up on adults using baby wipes, since I had never heard of the concept. I read the logic behind it, if you get shit on your finger, you're not just going to wipe it off with tp and call it clean, you'll use something wet, same should apply to your asshole.

Now every time I wipe, I wish I had wipes.

Other than the essentials and things that hold sentimental value:
My mom loved to send cards through the mail. She'd send B-day cards, Easter, Christmas...whatever holiday was coming up, I always knew I'd get one. The last card I got was a Thanksgiving card from her about a year and a half ago, and I still carry it in my purse with me at all times.

Of the six rings that I wear daily, three have lots of meaning. One was my mom's ring, another, my grandmother's and the other my brother bought me for my birthday when I turned 21. The others were bought by friends and I value them also, but the others can never be replaced.

Chill, I just haven't gone to the store, I will get to it, I just read about it last night, and I just remember every time I use the restroom.
