My emblem for visibility is a pair of glasses.

I have used glasses since I was seven years old. I distinctively remember the first time my eyes failed me. 259 more words

My emblem is trying to make the perfect homemade apple pie. A multitude of things could go wrong. The pie could burn, the top could sag, the crust could be too flaky, etc. 50 more words
