As I was walking to class, I saw all of the cars parked by my neighborhood (it is the only area around VCU where you don’t have to pay for parking. Oh God now you know.)
I saw all the cars, with its different colors and shape but serve the same purpose. On top of that, many people have the same cars and models and colors. So what makes them different?
Then, I glanced/peeked through their car window (I was being a nosy little bastard.) I could immediately tell they all have different personalities. This one car had Starbucks cup in their cup holder. The other car had VCU, RVA, Rams stickers plastered on every inch of their car. Then the other car had some kind of stuffed animal and I wasn’t sure what kind of animal it was. Heck, I wasn’t even sure if that actually a stuffed animal.
Anyway, I realized that even though you may have the same car as your neighbor or your roommate’s girlfriend, you are the only one who could make your car yours. Your car is whatever you make it to be.
So you know your car is special for you. You know it has lasted after all these years. But the question is, “What makes your car yours?”
Your could describe your car as a beast. Fiery. Feisty. Hot.
Or you wished your car could travel back in time for you to see the actual color of T-Rex.
Or maybe you are an environmentalist or a marine biologist, and you wished your car has a submarine mode that will let you communicate with all the sea creatures.
Or maybe you wished or actually an astronaut and want to explore the outer space even further.
Whatever your car might be, they all have helped you achieve many great things that you’ve accomplished by now. It’s not merely something that gets you from point A to B. It’s your companion and sidekick. It’s whatever you want it to be.
P.S. No dragons, dinosaurs, and sea creatures were harmed in the making of this drawing.
