This morning’s exercise on metaphors was actually a lot of fun, and was helpful in showing me how to be more analytical. As we went around the room and found different objects on blank sheets of paper, we were asked by our tutors to think of a metaphor for the objects in front of us. It was interesting to see how differently people saw each object and the interpretation that they had as individuals.

In the afternoon when we were asked to think of a metaphor of ourselves based on an object, I really struggles to come up with something good. Once I was more frustrated with myself than I should have been, it really just clicked. I love crystals, all types of crystals. I wear them as jewellery, used them for healing, as have them in my home as decor.

Watch the video below to see why a crystal is a metaphor for me:
