I placed all the items from my room that are dearest to me into a small, 12x12x12 box. This is the list of those items, in alphabetical order.

  • The Bachelor by Patrick Wolf.
    • Not my favourite album of his, but its still very close to my heart. Also commemorates my first live show and my favourite, currently active musician.
  • The Complete Illustrated Lewis Carroll Wordsworth Editions.
    • Received this for my 16th birthday. Haven't put it down since. (I've been an Alice fan since I was in 4th grade, though.)
  • Greatest Hits by Simon and Garfunkle.
  • The Great Escape by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.
    • One of my first books and the one I've had with me the longest.

Equipment

  • Hand-held Telescope - To replace my non-functional (read: toy) one.
  • Cellphone Pocketwatch - Came up with the idea one night and had to look on-line to see if such a thing existed. I haven't been able to find one, but a user named "moomintroll" (what are the odds) did (and the day after my birthday too)! He/she describes my idea very well: link
  • Stilts - In the event of a flood.
  • Wooden Pipe - More for show then actual use/Herbal.
  • Small, portable musical instrument - Such as a harmonica, ocarina, jaw harp, or even a blade of grass.
  • Pocket-Sized Note Book with graph paper and hand-made cover and binding to jot notes and drawings in.
  • Pocket-Seized Dictionary preferably one that was printed before 1980, if at all possible. If the cover isn't suitable, I'll tear it out and hand-make a new one for it.
