Life of a Blogger: Collections

Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by The Novel Heartbeat. You can see the full list of topics HERE.

This week’s theme is collections

It’s probably obvious, but my main collection is books. Unfortunately, most of my books are currently packed up, so I can’t post a picture, but I have HUNDREDS. Before we packed them all up, I had about three bookshelves or so, and I currently have one that is almost full, so yeah, I have a lot of books.

I am also a coffee addict, and I really love coffee cups, so that’s my next collection. Again, some of them are packed up, but these are some of mine. I’ve got several Doctor Who ones, a couple of penguin ones, two Keep Calm ones, and various others. The second picture is the coffee cup cabinet in our kitchen, which is actually missing a few (they’re in the dishwasher).

In addition to books, I’m a big fan of music. I love going to live shows, and I’m almost always listening to music. These are just the CDs I bought while in Scotland for a year and since being home.

My CD Collection

I really enjoy getting to meet bands and musicians so I can tell them how much I love/related to their music. I’ve met several of my favorites. Sometimes I ask them to sign a CD for me. Here are a couple of the ones I have signed.

The Neighbourhood - I Love You

The Neighbourhood actually signed the physical CD, which was silly and great.

I’m kind of an all-kind-of-entertainment person, so I also really love movies and television. I’m just a sucker for a good story. This is the movie cabinet in our house. My family really likes movies. 🙂 I’ve seen most of these.

What about you? What kind of things do you collect?
