Ah, back in college I would always pick up those free advertising postcards they have in stores, coffeeshops, etc. I don't know if that counts as collecting. There was no goal to it... or maybe I had one, I just don't remember now. Shouldn't collections have a goal? I have a pile a few inches high of those postcards somewhere. Somewhere. Now all of a sudden I'm a bit concerned and stressed out... maybe I'd thrown it away! Yikes! Oh well.
Anyway, so I've been wanting to start a collection. But what? Let me brainstorm:
1) Starbucks city mugs
2) My photo with celebrities
3) Art by local masters
Okay, scrap those. I don't drink coffee, it'd be too stressful because someone would have to physically drag me to ask for a photo and I can't afford those. Besides, those collections are better suited to my friends who already collect those. ;-p
So it has to be something I really like so I would keep at it. A bit challenging but not impossible. And not too expensive or would take up too much space. Ummm.... I can't come up with anything. I'm boring.
I've really been wanting to start a collection for a long time now. These were the things I seriously considered:
a) Longchamp Le Pliage: My sister gave me one for my birthday last year. The
b) Swatch watches: When did those Ateneo swatch watches come out? I stepped into a swatch store to pick up a couple of those for my sister and that's when the idea of collecting Swatch watches came to me. Well, probably the trigger was nostalgia. Didn't we all wear Swatch when we were younger? (Okay, except for best friend Hannah whose dad would only allow Timex.). The watches are pretty to look at and are functional. However, I stopped wearing watches a long time ago. Maybe I should start wearing watches again. (Ehrm, bagay pa ba sa age and personality ko ang Swatch? ;-p)
** April 1 was Zebra Swatch Day
While I'm deciding what to collect, I will just keep collecting hugs from Rocky and kisses from Marion. Haha, okay, that was cheesy and corny.
Here's one of those free postcards I used to pick up. I really liked the acela ads and this one was one of my favorites:
