It all started about 9 years ago during my freshman year of college. I was on the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) for BYU and every year they have a get together with all the officers. One of the perks of the conference was that we swapped school stuff, basically anything with a school name on it to keep for ourselves.
Some kid had a Colorado State shot glass and I knew my roommates boyfriend collected them so I traded him something for it. But my greed got the better of me and instead of actually passing it on to him I began my own collection (I know it's kinda random considering the strongest thing I'd ever put in these is Diet Coke).
After that whenever I went on vacation I found myself a shotglass and on rare occasions my family have picked me a up a few. My talented hubs made me this kickin' display for Valentines Day a few years back.
I have shot glasses from Finland, Italy, Germany, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Disneyland, Seattle, La Push, Vegas, Star Trek, Dodgers, Survivor (I believe it was season 2--I haven't watched it since), Hollywood, Washington DC, Idaho, Utah, Hawaii Hard Rock Cafe, Colorado, Niagara Falls, Busch Gardens and a few other places.
My other collection is postcards. I've been collecting those since I was 6ish.
Do you collect anything?
