In my room, I keep all of my pens, pencils, and other utensils in an enormous “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” cup. It holds a sentimental value to me because I bought (er, my parents bought) it on the first day that the movie came out. I remember it being an event so huge that parents were taking their kids out of school early to go see it.
A few years ago, the bottom of the cup gained a large crack. My mom insisted that I throw it away and find something else to hold my utensils, but I refused to use anything else. To this day it sits on my desk, a reminder of that unforgettable day.
