Life of a Blogger #3: Collections
Life of a Blogger is a weekly
meme hosted by Jessi at Novel Heartbeat. Each week she will choose a subject (scheduled in advance)
and all participating bloggers will talk about that part of their life. The topics will be non-bookish and it will give me a chance to talk about me and my life so that you can get to know me better on a more personal level.
This post usually comes out on Thursday but I’ve chosen to do it on Monday instead. I will be catching up on the older posts of this meme soon every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month on “Catch up Wednesday’s: Life of a Blogger”.
Last week’s topic was: Embarrassing Things
This is actually a pretty fun topic in my opinion. I chose to go with the 3 main collections that are in my life but also, easily accessible (I didn’t feel like running around everywhere in my whole house). I’m proud to show what’s mine and I look forward to seeing what other people have. I was going to talk about makeup, nail stuff, jewellery and vacation memories but that may be a little much in one shot. I’ll just hope that a post subject with those specific topics (I sent a suggestion for a beauty stuff topic) comes up in the future!
My bookshelf of amazingness, haha. It’s double stacked and it’s actually alphabetical behind the first row. My addiction got so overwhelming that I just started placing them wherever they fit! I have about 160 books on here and I’ve read maybe 1/4. Needless to say, I’m on a book buying ban it’s been about a year and a half now because I’m trying to get through my hundreds of physical books I own and the 200+ I have on my Kindle (free one’s I recently got, bad me!).
New books I got recently (meaning in the past year, lol). Half I bought on Chapters and half were given to me by my best friend Kelsey <3. These have yet to make their way into my bookshelf because I’ve run out of room. I’m buying a bigger bookshelf very soon and hope to place them ALL alphabetically!
These are my video games! There’s a bunch missing (Wii stuff mainly) but as you can obviously see; I love Xbox! If you’ve read my last Feature and Follow post about Guilty Pleasures… I love Xbox much more than any other console and out of the about 70 games here; there’s only 11 Playstation games. My husband and I love to get the newest games but we’ve been on a video game buying ban (maybe we both have a problem then…) for about a year. We are forcing ourselves to play the games we own because we kinda had a problem with buying new games and never opening them, ha that’s horrible.
Movies and Blu-rays, I stopped buying them a few years ago because everything is on Netflix now or cable. Plus, I have other perfectly healthy obsessions to spend my money on instead!
I also have a big CD “shelf” from when my husband and I used to buy them all the time but ya, that stopped a good 6 years ago now because there was no point any more. So, here’s the main things I collect and I hope you enjoyed this post.
*Update: After noticing how many things people were writing that they collected… I realized, I may have a problem. I also collect: Penguins!!!, shoes, Asian decorations, purses, clothes and as mentioned above^: jewellery, makeup, nail stuff…
What are some of the things you collect?
