i have a very maladaptive, impractical, time consuming, money grubbing, gross, stupid, inexplicable habit.
i collect everything that i like.
as of right now i collect:
- stuffed animals
- body spray
- disney tsum tsums
- jelly shoes
- disney ufufys
- grippy socks
- vintage panties
- floral arrangements
- paper copies of epic poems
- wide legged pants
- and to an extent pets
i’m sure that that’s not even the whole list.
this is an awful habit that i realized i had as i left the disney store with a bag of disney ufufys and decided that that would be my newest obsession. this habit is especially insidious as i don’t even realize that i collect these things until i have an impractical amount of the items i so dearly love. and once i love them can’t get rid of them.
am i a hoarder?
i just like so many things and can’t resist things i like so much.
one thing i’d like to comment on is how saying you collect something is looked upon so much more positively than admitting you have a hoarding problem. what’s up with that? the only difference i see between those at home museums and the houses on hoarders is that the people on hoarders don’t put up as many shelves.
i’m just gonna call myself a maximalist and live in peace with my mountains of stuff.
