My most valuable possession is probably my vinyl collection.
I got my first record at 6, it was 'My Generation' by The Who.
I thought receiving a record was weird, while everyone was receiving CD's and my grandpa told me "It is old, but when you get older collecting these will be an obsession".
Decade later, I have an addiction for buying vinyl records. I have like twenty four. Most of them I found at flea markets, and some are handed down from family members, online auctions or I bought them in Ottawa. My favorites are The Velvet Underground (The Velvet Underground & Nico), Jefferson Airplane (Surrealistic Pillow), Tigers Jaw (Charmer). The least I have ever spent was probably $2 and it was Blink 182 (Dude Ranch). The most I have ever spent was probably $78 and it was a first pressing of Led Zeppelin (Houses Of The Holy). The latest I have bought was Lana Del Rey (Ultraviolence) and it was $45.. So I guess you could say I have an obsession..
I'm actually gonna see The Who, next year and you don't know how excited I am. They are my first music obsession, there is something about Townshends playing that I really like. I do wish my grandfather was here, since he was the one to introduce me to them.
The who seems like it'd be an extraordinary concert for you, hope you have lots of fun!
Collecting vinyl is always something I wanted to do. Just the idea of vinyl seems so foreign yet amazing! In all honesty I'm a bit jealous of your grand collection! All those artists you listed off are certainly some of my favourites!
I've always wanted to collect vinyl, but I'm never really got around to it. Eventually. There's definitely something amazing about it. It's very intriguing, that's all I can say.
My most valuable possession is my first teddy bear I owned.
It is my most valuable possession because my dad bought it for me in the hospital when I was first born. It doesn't seem like much when you look at its cute tie, orangish pink dark fur and the stain on it's back but it's the only actual object I could keep forever that my dad bought me. We weren't really well off as a family and I never get to see my dad as much anymore considering I am now adopted from my grandparents but that bear is important to me because even though my dad might have not went with supper that night when he bought it for me it's special because he probably didn't go with supper since he couldn't afford extra things for him self either. It was important to me up till I was three and up till now.
This is a very touching story, my eyes are sweating now. :')
my most valuable possession is either my cross and pendant that was my great grandmothers or it would be my first buck knife that i got from my uncle. both have sentimental value and they hold good memories for me and that is why they are my most valuable possessions.
My most valuable possession has to be my guitar. It is a Fender acoustic. I got it back when I was in foster care for Christmas about 3 or 4 years ago. It's the first guitar I could ever call mine and it brings so many memories back, good and bad, whether they are sitting around a fire playing and singing with my family, hanging around friends, or sitting in the halls my friend and playing here at school. It's my baby. I love that whenever I'm bored I can pick it up and just have fun and it helps me let some emotions go out the window. I don't have to be extremely good at playing, I just have to have fun. And I don't play for anyone, but myself.
I own a guitar and I can certainly say that owning a guitar is great. All those things you listed off are pretty relatable and I can't help but think about how much I should get back into playing guitar now.
It's definitely one of my favorite things to do when I have nothing else to do. Just being able to pick up a inanimate object, play a few things, it's like magic. It's captivating, honestly.
Everyone on here has sentimental stories, meanwhile my most valuable possession is my computer. But it's my way to communicate, to explore! It's something that puts laughter into my life, and gives me things to think over. Whether that be music, movies, or another's perspective.
I agree very much! Technology is wonderful and I honestly don't know if I can go two days without my iPod!
Internet in general has changed my life in such a more positive way, it opened my mind to social justice and inspired me to do so much more with my life.
Of course, my tablet or phone is also one my my valuable possessions because it does let me communicate with people. But nowadays, some people do let it technology consume them and don't go anywhere except another room in their house. I find a phone call is better than a text in the first place. But technology is wonderful in general and I can relate to that.
My most valuable possession would be my electronic keyboard. I remember me and my brother got it as a gift when I was six, and it was only 50 dollars yet it was an amazing well working keyboard. It was the first big toy I ever gotten and it is the keyboard that first introduced me to to piano. It's the keyboard that has been through 3 houses, made tips at a restaurant, and passed grade 4 exam. While it's not amazing and relatively small, I still keep it in my room happy for it helping me with my accomplishments.
One of these days, I'm going to get around to getting a keyboard and learn how to play. It's definitely on my bucket list.
You know the drill!
