I’ve held onto this for over a decade. You can see the wear in the tag and hopefully not the weird stains that mottle the fabric. I received this as a high school graduation present from an underclassman. It’s so soft and fun to play with as I watched t.v. or lounged around with my roommates in college. If anything, I’ve held onto this for so long because of its sentimental value. When I look at it, I think of college and the times I spent with my friends.
Since graduating, I’ve lugged it back to my parent’s house and finally into my new home with my husband. However, I haven’t really used it since college graduation. It’s with good reason. It just looks kind of gross with its weird stains from events I have a hazy recollection of.
Although it holds a lot of emotional value, my yellow star pillow has to go. It doesn’t even feel right to donate this to anyone. This one is just going in the trash.
