At various points in my life, I have collected things that are supposed to be thrown away or left as it is. When I was about nine years old, a friend and I collected sea shells. We had boxes of them but I could no longer remember where we placed them. I just hope we put them back into the sea shore. During my highschool days, I tried collecting stamps, then shifted to stationeries until college. I had rare stationeries like from the movie Cassablanca and Romeo and Juliet. But when I went to Japan after graduation, I don’t know what had become of them. I had a box full of my precious stationeries and losing them still makes me sad. Just a few years ago, I started collecting cardboard displays and boxes of sweets from Japan. I still have loads of them in my cabinet at home in the Philippines. I still don’t know what I’ll be collecting next but maybe more of those cool paper bags?
