Hi there. I'm Gabby.
I found out snail mail and pen palling was actually really popular recently, and have decided to gain some courage to step into the community.
Sending decorative letters, and maybe making someone laugh a time or to along the way is what I aim to do.
Aside that, I'm just a shy nerd! If you're interested in doing a one on one swap/becoming long term pen pals, just bump me, I don't mind.
I have to take a short break from Swapping as it's crunch time to move, and I don't technically have an address at the moment, lol. I'll be back in November!
✰ I figure skate!
✰ It's been my sport for the last 3 years. I'm more savvy with foot work & edges than jumps or spins.
✰ My all time favorite skaters are Yuzuru Hanyu(JPN), Yuna Kim(KOR), and Jason Brown(USA).
✰ I do digital art in my down time.
✰ My current tablet is a Wacom Bamboo (I can't remember the manufacturing number, but it's from 2012)
✰ I like making book marks, icons, and illustrating when I have the capacity/attention span to.
✰ I've always had a habit of doodling on notebooks too.
✰ To be quite honest, I didn't know what ATCs were before I came to swap-bot. I love the idea, and have a ton of copics collecting dust on one of my shelves... so I'm excited to enter this medium of art!
✰ I write! (Not as well as I would like to, but it's something I have always enjoyed.)
✰ Fiction and poetry are my fortes.
✰ I'm currently working on a novel. One day, I'd like to be a fully published author. My current inspirations are Holly Black, Leigh Bardugo, and Cornelia Funke.
✰ I've been a huge gamer my entire life.
✰ Some of my favorite games are: The Legend of Zelda, Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, Kingdom Hearts, and Moonlighter.
Good reads that have always stuck with me and some new favorites! I'm an avid reader, and am always looking forward to suggestions.

I'm a generally open minded person. There isn't too much that I will turn down or away from, but I do have a few small requests, if you don't mind.
✰ Please refrain from anything political.
✰ Please, please please... no glitter. Please. I beg you. No glitter.
