Life of a Blogger: Most Prized Possession

Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi from Novel Heartbeat, where we talk about what we do when we're not reading.

This week's topic:
Most prized possession

I've never really been the kind of person to have a 'prized possession'. I have the obvious things that I don't want people to touch: my phone, purse, kindle, even my games consoles, but after thinking about this I realised that there is something that I just will not lend out to anybody:

(picture's not too great, sorry)
This is my film library, which is still not big enough. I'm way more reluctant to let people borrow my DVDs than my books because books can handle quite a bit of wear and tear. DVDs are a lot more fragile than that (anything in disc format is). One big long scratch on it and you might as well throw it away. Buh-bye.

I think i's been established before that I am obsessed with buying DVDs, but if I manage to get a special edition with a shit ton of extras and special features, nuh-uh, you're not taking it away from me because I don't even trust my own flesh and blood with these babies. No way no how.

Do you have a prized possession?

When she's not doing responsible things, reading, or blogging, she can be found watching movies or TV, playing video games, slowly going deaf from listening to really loud music, or making bad jokes on Twitter. She loves Muppets, shoes, and plushies and is always on the lookout for the next best polish in the perfect shade of blue. She hopes to be a Gothic/vampire author in the future and bring her own brand of vampire to life (no, they don't sparkle).

  1. DVDs are definitely more fragile than books. I have a couple in my collection, too (mostly horror, some rom-com). My most prized possession would have to be my journals. Lol. They're nothing fancy. Just different kinds of notebooks but they're invaluable to me just the same. I store them in a box with a lock.

  2. It looks lovely! There's something satisfying about them being nice and orderly like that :D

  3. I was thinking the same thing as the first comment-DVDs are so incredibly fragile. I definitely understand your hesitance of lending them out. Spill coffee on a book? Still pretty usable. Spill coffee on DVDs? Ha. I'm not sure if I have prized possessions either...I guess I would pick my memory box, which has all sorts of stuff from my family over the years.
