When we were kids, we wanted every school accessory to have our favorite cartoon characters or superheroes on it. Those juvenile status symbols motivated our willingness to go to school and study. But as we grew up, we realized that those things started to embarrass us rather than making us happy.

My mom never let me go to college without packing something for lunch. But finding cartoon characters on my college lunch boxes stopped me from taking them out of my bag. Having a great lunch prepared by your lovely mom won't be hindered anymore by childish lunch boxes.
