The Burning House

A while back I stumbled across this website called "the Burning House" which has the following description:
If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question. 
I think this is such a fascinating question and it's really interesting to browse through the website and see what people choose to take with them in case they had to. Some people have a ridiculous amount of stuff they want to bring with them (I probably wouldn't bring nail polish with me, but that's none of my business) while others only pick a few bits.
The stuff that I ideally would get with me out is way larger than what I've chosen to bring in this post. If my house was actually on fire I'd probably either grab everything I could get my hands on or just get out without anything. But what I chose when making this post is:

A box of memories in which I've collected all kinds of small stuff during the years.
A mask that I bought on a trip to Venice with my family many years ago.
My camera (which I took the picture with) and my lenses.
My favourite toy, Kiara, from when I was a child.
External hard drive where I have all my pictures and other important stuff on. 
A photo album with old pictures from the time where you'd actually get them developed.
A Pandora bracelet which I wore every single day in primary school.
(Also I'd like to bring my computer, which also has a lot of pictures and memories on it)

At least these are some of my stuff that really mean something to me. Some of the stuff I could obviously live without - it' pretty easy to get a new passport - but it's more the story and meaning behind the object.

If you were in this situation, what do you think you'd bring?
