Today is my nineteenth birthday and the year anniversary of when I inherited my earrings. It’s safe to say that this has been the best year of my life and I attribute a lot of that to the fact that I have these earrings with me, day in and day out. In any situation where something could have gone wrong, it ended up going right.
I’m living a very normal life for a nineteen-year-old, like I haven’t turned magic or anything over the course of the year, but I definitely think that my earrings, which have now disguised themselves as shell earrings instead of cross earrings (apparently the design changes every year) are helping me live a better life than the average person. No complaints on my end. It’s nice living a normal life but with some sort of mystical force helping me.
My first year of university was absolutely awesome as well. I am top of my class, having received High Distinctions in every subject because every exam went perfectly. It’s funny how things just happen to work out for me now. The pre-earrings me would’ve gotten into the exam and been faced with all the questions that I didn’t know the answer to, but now that I have these earrings literally by my side, nothing can go wrong or stop me.
One bad part about having these incredibly magic earrings is that I’ve started to pity people who just have to have standard earrings. Melbourne is such a trendy part of the country, I’m always impressed when I see someone with a unique sense of fashion. I couldn’t imagine wearing earrings that did nothing other than look pretty. Earrings are so much more than that. They are the light that guides us in the right direction. If I’m unsure about anything I let my earrings take over and I trust the judgements my earrings make. In an entire year, my earrings haven’t led me astray once.
Thank you great-great-great-something Grandma. I’m sorry you experienced such a terrible fate, but thank you for everything
