I’m going to talk about a piece of calligraphy that means a lot to me.
It was quite a few years ago, when I was a senior in high school. At the time I was preparing for my university entrance exam, feeling worried and nervous all the time.
In order to feel better I went to a place called ABC, the first university of my country, to buy some lucky souvenirs. The place is situated in the centre of our capital, its architecture typical of the feudal times, looking very distinct from the modern buildings in its surroundings.
At the entrance I noticed people in traditional clothing offering calligraphy service. I briefly told one of them what I needed and he soon produced a piece of calligraphy that roughly translates to “success in exams”. I happily paid the fee, took a walk around the complex and then went home.
I don’t know whether my lucky calligraphy worked, but I got a very good result and was accepted to my dream university. Till this day, I still have the piece of writing hung in my living room.
