blame it on the sun, the whiskey or whatever, but for quite some time i've been pondering the question:how often do you really appreciate your collection, or do you appreciate it at all?
more often than not i find myself losing interest in a topic once i've completed a diorama or even midway. yet i "enjoy" owning it. there are times, now specifically, when other hobbies take the lead and i rest assured that my collection is just a room away.
still i don't bother checking up if "everything is alright" for weeks.
matter of fact i find myself thinking of reducing the living space in the distant future in order to reduce working hours as well, since i found out that my raging tinnitus gets less the more I reduce stress at work.
but less work equals in less money so in the end i'd sell my house in order to make up for it.
as much as i like my fallout diorama for example, playing it is a far more
intense experience as recreating it with figures.
don't get me wrong. the power armor figures are insane and i am very happy how my 3d printed customs turned out. still the 1/6 hobby occupies a lot of space and i'm not sure i can provide said space forever.
this is however not a goodbye to the hobby in the next few years, yet i feel as if i don't appreciate the things i got right now as much as i should.
this might be read a lot more serious than it is intended to be, still i'd like to hear your opinion on the matter.
