Many people have a hobby of collecting different things. I am suggesting a few things you can start collecting and build up a hobby collection for yourself. A hobby helps you connect with similar minded people, make new friends, pass away your time, learn new things and have fun at the same time.
Postage stamp collecting or philately is the most popular hobby in the world. Some people have become millionaires after selling their stamp collections. You can start stamp collecting by asking your family members and friends for the stamps they receive in their mail on the envelopes. You can visit your local post office. Many post offices have philately sections too. You can connect with different collectors on the web via different social networks. You can also purchase stamps on ebay and such sites. Some collect stamps only on a specific theme. Example there are people who collect only olympic stamps. Start today. Similarly, coin and currency note collecting or numismatics is a very popular hobby. In fact some people collect both coins and stamps. These hobbies will help you to learn about new countries and cultures.

British pensioner George Hansworth had discovered an example of the famous British Guiana Penny Magenta stamp in his childhood stamp collection.
Only one other example is known to exist and it is valued at $5m. It's held in a bank vault in Philadelphia, USA.
A second example was discovered in the 1920's only to be purchased and subsequently burnt by the owner of the existing stamp to ensure his example remained unique.
George's example had been verified as genuine and was due to be auctioned in London later this year.
A delighted George is interviewed by the British News 24 TV channel... but with disastrous consequences.
