    Those Star wars cards are worth a lot by now I bet.

    I didn't collect anything. I liked to make things and my sister alway made fun of that fact...she called me "Make & Do" after a craft book we had. That didn't stop me, though, it just made me hate her :D

    myself just me

    I collected stickers and I had albums with Sailor Moon, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Lion King and many many more.
    And I used to enjoy drawing and painting, when I grew up I became too self-conscious and self-critical to continue.

    I liked stickers and sticker books, collecting marbles, pogs, barbies, polly pockets, I liked to read about ghost stories and true hauntings, vampires and all that horror stuff. I like to play in the woods by my house all day. Go biking and try to get lost in town. Spice girl picture collecting. Sleepovers. Going to 'Wheelies' the rollerskating rink by my house. Watching the "TGIF" lineup of shows on tv on friday nights. Trying to get to the middle of the jawbreaker.

    I really loved to run around as a kid, play flag football, red light green light (anyone remember that?), bike riding, play with insects and lizards, FISHING man i loved fishing, go on field trips, and of course hide and seek. I also liked to go and have little adventures with my cousin and brother when we were at my grannys house in Lafalt,LA.

    I collected rocks, postcards, business cards, stickers, marbles, and pogs. I still collect postcards and business cards and a few stickers.

    I went around putting hair wraps in all the neighbourhood and school girls' hair and I charged $1 for each wrap. I also made bracelets, and had a craft workshop with my girlfriends. We had craft fairs and sold a bunch of stuff to raise money for the church as well as at my school.

    I sang in the choir at school and was one of the first female altar servers at my church.

    I volunteered to lead horse trails, to feed and attend to horses at a ranch near my house. I was in Girl Guides and did a bunch of camping and took on a whole slew of hobbies required to earn my badges.

    I started this neighbourhood club where we would hold candy tosses and obstacle course type games for the younger kids. I also organized an "Are You Afraid of the Dark" type group where we met at my house every Friday to have a campfire in my backyard to tell scary stories to each other and eat junk food.

    I went to acting, drama camps and workshops and practiced what I learned with the friends that I had.

    On top of it all, I played 13 years total of soccer, 9 years of hockey, 2 years of volleyball, 5 years of running track, and 4 years of competitive badminton, 7 years of piano lessons.

    Yeah, I am always juggling my many hobbies and talents. It keeps life fun and it's worth it to do everything you can in your childhood.

    Our roller rink was called Roller World and it was within walking distance of my house. I liked to do the hokey pokey. :D I was also big into skateboarding, we had several halfpipes in the neighborhood. We played churchyard football 3 or 4 times a week, tackle only, touch football is for pussies.

    this reminds me of an article i read on carl jung. he had some weird compulsive habits as a child that influenced him to research extensively the collective unconscious.

    i played make-believe and dress up, wrote stories, climbed trees, went hiking, made jewelry, painted, rode horses, sang my heart out, danced, played soccer... then i discovered drugs.
    then i discovered mushrooms and started all over again.
