So may people out there are collectors. I’m one. I’m sure you’re probably one. So what kind of things do you collect? I’m guilty of collecting a lot. I like collecting Zelda figures, animal skulls, Pokemon stuff, notebooks–bottom line: I’m quite the geek. I’ve got a brother who collects Dungeons and Dragons stuff and I know there’s a lot of people out there who collect sports stuff. You could be a bottle cap collector, a card collector, stamps, art, history etc. We all have our favorite things.
As fun as it is to collect, depending on what it is could be frowned up by society–especially if its expensive. Not a lot of people I know understand the geeky stuff and you should see the weird looks I get when I mention to anyone that I collect animal skulls. But, I could flip it around. You’ll never see me collecting sport teams stuff, but I know people who are really into it.
So, here’s to the collectors who like to show off and stare at their collection. To those who are willing to save up a bunch of money just to get the last piece in the set or the latest edition. Here’s to those that collect because they enjoy it, not because they know they can sell it off for more later. You’re not alone out there and don’t be ashamed. That collection of yours is a little peek into you.
