So if I admit that I need to compartmentalize different parts of my life, does that make me some sort of case study for psychology? Actually, if you ask some of my long-time followers (cough Dale cough); it makes me a flip-flopper -- and I guess I can admit that they'd be right.
When I started on Twitter, I had multiple accounts because I kept my collecting separate from the rest of my life. It's not a "shame" thing -- it's merely because the majority of my friends could care less about the cards and memorabilia that I've accumulated. On the other hand, many of the people who follow me to talk cards and about the hobby, couldn't care less about the hockey game I'm watching or the food truck serving lunch outside of my office.
So if you want to follow me for collecting, @edthecollector is back. If you want to follow the rest of my ordinary life, @heyyoeddie is still there. Follow one, follow both, unfollow at will -- the choice is yours; because if you need to compartmentalize too, who am I to judge?
