2019 Collecting Hopes
1) Get things organized - Currently my collection is in 3,200 count boxes and I would like to move it to binders. Once we get some Christmas debt paid off here at CCHQ, we are looking to buy another one of those storage cube things for our bedroom. Once we get that, I'm planning on putting binders in that cube as our bookcase is currently full. Doing this will help me accomplish another goal ...
2) Keep things organized - When I get new cards be it online, card show, card shop, retail, or otherwise, they currently sit in the corner of the bedroom until I get the energy to get the boxes out my five-year olds closet and sort everything. Binders and keeping the binders stored in the bedroom on the aforementioned storage cube will help with this.
3) Video reviews - This is something I've been considering for a while. I know Oscar over at ATTBATT does video reviews now for cards he gets in the mail. While the text articles will always be king here, I think it's the time to potentially add some video elements in. I'm not sure what these will be yet and I need to figure out filming time, editing time, etc.
Aside from those three things, I can't really think of any other big things I want to accomplish in 2019. Going into 2019, expect more fun articles including the continuation of the "Around the Horn" series and the "Wacky Wrestling VHS Boxes" series. There's also the annual community yard sales in mid-May and the early 2019 baseball cards coming out at the end of the month.
Personally, here at CCHQ, we closed 2018 with three of the four people in the house (with the exception of the 1-year old) all sick at pretty much the same time, which was just the capper to an awful last quarter of the year. My wife had nearly the full-blown flu with a near 103 degree fever, I had some sort of stomach and intestinal virus which caused me not to be able to eat anything for 4-5 days, and my 5-year old had strep throat and a double ear infection. While everyone now is feeling better, my wife is still getting over her illness though, we're hoping that 2019 is better than 2018.
