Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by the wonderful bloggers over at The Broke and The Bookish! Make sure you head over there, check out their blog, give them a follow, and even sign up to do TTT on your blog! This week’s topic is a freebie! We can list any ten things we want, even listing top ten favorite lists. Hah. I initially wasn’t going to make one because my creativity in TTT sucks. However, after reading Josie’s TTT, she gave me the idea to make a list of my collections! We all collect something, some more than others — I’m one of those somes haha. I might become a hoarder one day (eeek!)
Top Ten Things I Collect
(1) Books! Books! Books!
That’s actually just some of my books. I have another bookshelf that isn’t picture here. I also have the random books on my bedside table and my headboard … overall I have around 400 something books. You can check out my (not updated) list of books I own here.
(2) Writing Implements: Pens, Pencils, Crayons, oh my!
Yeah, this is an obsession. I have over 20 different types of pens and I keep buying them. I use a lot of my felt pens for drawing and then regular pens for writing. My mom thinks I’m crazy since I don’t even go to school anymore haha
(3) Post-Its Galore
Isn’t it beautiful?! I love my little collection. I want to get every size haha. My sister actually has a bigger collection than me. That’s her obsession. It’s how my brother-in-law proposed to her! He spelled out Marry Me in post-its and stuck it on the walls of her dream home, with pictures of them all over the wall. AND on each post-it, he wrote out reasons why he loves her (*enter tears*) Is that not the cutest thing ever!! I’ll take some credit, I helped him think of it haha.
(4) I need Bookmarks for all these books!
I’m sure other bookworms collect bookmarks! I love the Book Depository bookmarks and my Up magnetic bookmark. You can’t really see it but I adore my ACOTAR bookmark that’s here 😀
(5) Nerd Alert: I collect School Notes
This isn’t all of them but I kept all my notes from my Nutrition classes from college because I love the subject that much. I look over them when I want a refresher or, you know, just for fun. I keep them organized by professor then lecture and lab haha.
(6) Cards that were given to me
I love making cards and I love getting them. I especially treasure the homemade ones. Cards and their messages get me emotional and I love keeping a stack of them!
(7) Notebooks: Big Ones, Small Ones, Themed Ones, Green Ones!
Continuing with my school obsession, I buy more notebooks than I use. Out of all these notebooks, 6 are used and not even filled. The rest, I haven’t touched. They’re all so pretty, I can’t use them haha.
I literally screamed when I found out Bloomsbury was giving away ToG pins with the pre-order of QoS! I LOVE pins!! They’re mostly on my bag here. I have all kinds, most of which I bought at Hot Topic or my sister gave me. I also got some from a bookstore and one of them says Future Author!
(9) Germophobia is real people. Hand Sanitizers are my saviors
I buy these all the time even though I still have some. I have one attached to my car keys so it’s with me wherever I go. I have hand wipes in my car and I have hand wipe packets. I know, crazy. If you think I’m bad, my sister’s worse.
Here are the posters in my room, not including the many Super Mario stickers I have up on there. I love filling up my walls with them! The Hobbit one might be my favorite but I can’t choose! Wait, no! The Host poster is my favorite haha it’s signed by Max Irons ❤ ❤
I am starting to collect little bottles of paint 😀 It’s going great haha. I also collect movie stubs but that was hard to take a picture of since it’s all over my room and in my notebooks.
So there’s my Top Ten List! I collect a lot of crap and there are even more things I collect but these are the main ones. Do you collect things? Anything in common with me? Let me know below and don’t forget to leave a link to your Top Ten!
