I Collect Things

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 878 People

    Pebbles. Notes from friends.

    The occasional well-looked over feather. And my personal favorite, paper stars. I have around 30 paper stars and counting. Sometimes I collect pressed four leaf clovers (I have an aptitude for hunting them down) and small pressed flowers :) pretty, meaningful things :)

    When I enjoy something,

    I always feel like I must get something to remind me of that memory at a later date. But because of this I always have the urge to get more money so I can get more and more and more.

    When I was younger I was awesome at winning pogs. I had such a sweet collection. I also had doubles and triples. However I would trade or give them away. I just thought of that when I seen this group. I don't have any of them now though. Oh well.
