One of the things I have collected for many years now is the badges you get at conferences. There was a time when I went to three or four conferences or more per year. I started more than ten years ago keeping the badges. Don’t ask me why I do not know why I did. I had them in a box for a long time and just kept adding the badges to the box. Then one day I just stuck them on the shelving bracket in my office. Again, no clue as to why. But I did, and they have been there ever since. I suspect now it is less of a collection and more of a habit to keep the badge and stick each one with the others. I do know I also kept a few where they misspelled my last name, that is a common occurrence but one I do note when it happens.
There are badges hanging on the other side of my office shelves as well.
Anyway back to the collection of collection photos from my life. I have two more collections that I have not shared yet; those are coming. I have slowly worked through all the collections I have managed to collect over my 30 year IT career, and before that as well. Collections can be great connections to things that once impacted or were of value. They can also be clutter. You have to find value in what you collect, or the cluttered word comes often.
Anyone can join the Photo Challenge. Take a picture (less than seven days old) and share it!
