#MicroblogMonday – Collections

Over the years, I’ve collected many things.

When I was in elementary school I collected stickers. I had tons of them! And still have a few. Garfield anyone?

In elementary school and junior high, I collected pins and stored them on my curtains. I had some from when I watched a space shuttle land in the ’80s and some that were my grandmother’s after she passed away. I wonder if I still have some tucked away at my dad’s house somewhere.

In junior high and high school I collected movie ticket stubs. I’d write who I saw the movie with on the stub.

I also had tons of Native American and wolf stuff during high school. I even went to a few pow wows.

I collected business cards and match books for a while. I had no criteria for them, I just collected what I came across.

During my junior year of high school frogs became my thing. They still are, but I don’t have nearly as much frog items as I used. I still have some cards, stickers, stuffed toys, dust collectors, etc. Paxlet now has my froggy bank and loves it.

While in Finland I started collecting my used contact lenses in a small jar. I would tell myself that someday I would turn it into an art piece titled “lost vision” or something like that. I should just toss the whole thing.

But the thing that I seem to collect the most and continually is bruises. At this moment I have some “pretty” ones on my right upper thigh from walking into the corner of the bathroom door frame.

What do you collect?
