A Token of My Past

I grew up in the 90s. In fact, most of my fond memories was when during this era. I was at that stage when I wasn’t a kid anymore but not quite an adult yet. My parents thought I was old enough to go along with my friends without a chaperone but not old enough on some chores and responsibilities. Ahh.. I loved that transition. Fun times, fun times!

As a reminder of the fun times I had, I decided to get something from the 90s. I was looking through a bunch of old pictures when I noticed the wrist watch that I was wearing on some of them. It was a Benetton watch with a blue strap, with a white bezel and a sailboat design on the background of the dial. It was my favorite timepiece. I have worn it all the time. I could not remember what happened to it. I wish I have taken good care of it.

I got this from ebay for a reasonable price because I think Benetton doesn’t make them anymore. I was quite disappointed that I didn’t get the same watch I used to have.  I guess I will have to settle for this.  The seller said she’s getting rid of some stuff that she doesn’t need anymore and this watch is one of them. I asked a little history of the item. She said it has been tucked away in a cabinet since she bought it about 20 years ago – never worn it. I guess her trash is now my treasure.

Thank You!

I know, I haven’t updated this blog for quite some time now. Creativity and inspiration have left me for a while. But now I’m back … I think … I hope. You, my readers, have fueled my passion and desire to write again. Oh how much I have missed it. I hope I can keep up.

I would like to thank those who have read my ramblings and gave me the thumbs up by liking the posts and leaving your kind comments. Words cannot express my appreciation for your gesture. I am truly grateful. Thank you very much!
