Do you collect something?

The closest thing would be Metro/subway tokens and farecards from places I've lived/visited around the world.   (i.e., DC, NYC, Frankfurt, Rome, Boston, etc...)

 

The Tokyo transit system is insane, because it looks like a giant bowl of spaghetti.   And any little random stop on the far-off periphery, you emerge, expect to find a peaceful suburban area, only to find that it's just as crowded and dense as the city core, with shops, arcades, restaurants, electronic stores and pachinko parlors galore.

Not really. I guess I can say games, but it's more that I just never sell them...so I've built up a decent collection over the years that continues to grow with the PS5 now. But I'm not specifically buying games for collection purposes...then again if I had more of a disposable income, I probably would do that.

I buy a lot of books - thrillers, crime novels, adventure stories, biographies, World War II true stories..... a decent range of genres.  I'm not reading them as quickly as I would like, but I will get there.

 

Blurays - currently have around 330 so far, and plenty more to get 😂

 

Graphic Novels - I don't have a huge number, but there are enough to fill a shelf.

 

And CDs - I'm one of the dinosaurs who still prefers to buy music on disc rather than streaming it.

More people need to read books. In recent years I’ve been reading books on Winston Churchill, Stalin, JFK assassination and it has really helped improve my attention span. 
 

Not just history, but novels by acclaimed writers like Ernest Hemingway and Stephen King. 
 

You definitely need patience to sit thru some books.

Wow, from all the people here, I'm super glad to hear those words from you! I'm into some books too (and I read a good deal of stuff from here and there also) and really helps a lot, as improved a lot of many other skills. Thanks for sharing. :)

I’m starting to collect whiskey bottles. My girlfriend has bought me a couple of little whiskey sets with the mini bottles of all different kinds of whiskey for birthdays/Christmas etc because I love it. I want to eventually have a couple of shelves full of all different kinds and sizes of bottles.

 

I used to collect funko pops but it became a bit too expensive of a habit.

 

I collect fridge magnets from any place I visit and have people bring me one back from wherever they go lol.

 

My girlfriend collects rare coins, specifically 50p coins.

I love to collect Video games. Especially: PlayStation games. I want to own every PS2 game from the PAL region one day. But this is going to be hard, but I'm doing my best!

And I'm collecting Harley Quinn Funko Pops. Only 2 are missing, but I'm waiting for a good offer, cause they old ones are so expensive 😅
