When I was in high school there was an ex-rental video store in the town where the school was, so when I had a free period I would go down and started buying some of the ex-rental videos. They came in huge plastic boxes compared to standard videos. I also started buying videos from the supermarket we went to when they opened up a section of the store that sold low price videos. At the time I thought I had bought tons, looking at them now I don’t know why I came to that conclusion. Maybe there’s 20 or so videos in my room.
You should see my DVDs.
I have 4 tall piles of DVDs. Probably easily 100. They take up soo much space, just like my books. When DVDs came out I remember thinking “I don’t see myself buying many of them. I like videos”. Pfft! That lasted long. I now even own 2 BluRay movies as well. I even have some movies on video and DVD. Shame is that nobody wants to buy videos these days, so there’s no chance in selling them. Some charity shops don’t take them anymore. And I don’t want to throw them in the bin.
Some shows like “Charmed”, I watched on TV and taped them. Then one day I decided I should buy them on DVD. So I bought all the seasons on DVD. Have I watched them? Not really. And “Xena”, I had a few tapes with my favourite episodes on them. I decided to buy that on DVD, again I haven’t really used them. It’s just money sitting there, wasted. Sometimes I will buy a DVD and it will sit in the sellophane for years. And when it comes time for me to finally sit down and watch it, the thing has been on TV about 3 times. Again, wasted money.
My room is so full of stuff like DVDs, Books, cassette tapes, magazines, CDs. They take up so much space, it’s ridiculous.
So D is for DVDs. And the excessive amount of them that I have.
