Silly Superstitions

*Side Note:

Blogger didn't seem to post any of my scheduled posts this week, so I am posting each one daily until we are caught up! Sorry for confusion, I only just realised!

Silly Superstitions
We all have the little things in our daily routine which we need to do in order to feel normal. Take cigarettes, they have factors that can make a person addicted to them, leading them to thinking they can't do anything else until they have had a cigarette.
For me, the cigarette is gemstones- crazy huh?
My obsession with gem stones started when I was a little girl, purchasing what I thought was just a purple stone with my parents at the Aquarium when I was three. It turned out to be Amethyst and from the age of 7 I didn't let it leave my side. Obsessed was an understatement. I took it around with me in my pocket when I would always feel on edge/nervous or if something really exciting was going to happen. As I got older I stopped carrying it around with me as I didn't think I needed it as much, yet I would still do things such as sleep with the stone under my pillow, or make a wish holding it in the morning of an exam.
I came to realise around 5 months ago my piece of amethyst disappeared, and I don't have a clue where it would be. Its really baffled me as today (29th January) I have an audition for my dream university, and I was going to carry the amethyst with me, or even wish on it before I leave, but as I can't do that, now what do I do?
I can see how people would think that this completely strange, but putting it into context, switch out the amethyst for something you consistently go to- is this your silly superstition?
