A True Balancing Act
Card collecting from the eyes of a teenager
 
entry Oct 6 2007, 11:55 PM
Hey guys its Chris aka trot2millah. I'm just sitting here, playing Halo 3 with my friend and working to get some trades done at 9:30 at night. So a little about me first: I'm a Sophmore in high school, all advanced classes, and planning on trying out for the baseball team in the spring. I collected cards a lot around 2000-2001. Unfortunately, being a kid then, the majority of my money was spent on those "100 cards good players" sets being sold for $5 at any Target or Walmart. I got back into the hobby when I stumbled upon a Ken Griffey Sr. game used, my only game used after all that money wasted. And just like that, I was hooked again. So here I am, writing on my computer. This blog will focus on the difficulties of being a teenager and an avid card collector. I tell ya, it's not easy. With loads of homework, doing social stuff, I wonder how I find time to be on here so much. And, until I get a job, virtually no money for singles or boxes. Over the next couple of months, I'm going to try to buy a box (birthday is coming up), and expand my collection. So thanks for the read, and look for more posts!
