I used to collect a lot of things, but then I lost everything in Hurricane Andrew, and found it hard to start up "collecting things" again. I used to collect tigers when I was younger- anything that I could get my hands on, that was tiger-related (white tigers with blue eyes were my favorite). It's funny to think back on, because I don't particularly like tigers at all now. I can't think of a single object I own now that is tiger-shaped or has a tiger on it. I also collected pigs at one point, and still do to a certain extent. Fairies were another one of my collecting favorites, but I'd like to think that I was collecting them way before they caught on with the rest of the world. It seems like I had been collecting them for years, and then overnight, so was everyone else. I lose interest in things if they become popular "with everyone". Right now I don't have a collection of anything, but I think it might be fun to start collecting bee-related objects and things. I'm also thinking I'd love to start a collection of antique photographs- I come across so many stray old photos in flea markets.

Yes, I am a collector of a lot of things, haha. Since childhood, I've been collecting mostly girl stuff such as dolls, teenage pocket books (Sweet Valley High, if you're from my generation, you can definitely relate to me!), stationeries, keychains, figurines, audio cds, vcds/dvds, letters from friends, bracelets, earrings and other accessories, and colorful post-its or papers. Other stuff include Archie comic books, teen magazines and other fictional/non-fictional books. The most unique collection that I have are paper bags (from stores where I bought shoes, clothes, etc.) and the container of McDonald's french fries. I used it as a stationery before, weird much? Haha. But now, I do not collect anything anymore except for the stuff I've already had before.
