About Me

Hey! I’m Abe (or Abraham if you feel like being fancy). I’m a 33 year old queer trans man. I had my first pen pal when I was 4 years old and as email and online messaging took over most communications, I’ve missed seeing something fun in my mailbox!

I live with my partner (Sav) and our pet hamster, Charles Lincoln Neal V (points to you if you know who he’s named after). I studied English/Creative Writing in college and write some poetry myself, but haven’t really settled on a career path just yet. For now I do a lot of dogsitting, landscaping, and other odd jobs.

I’m a pretty crafty person and between my partner and I, we do a little bit of everything. Our apartment is small but we have an entire dresser dedicated to keeping all of our crafty bits and bobs. We both love sculpy and paper crafts. Sav is more into cooking than I am, but recently I’ve been trying out cake decorating!

——-

I mark my swaps sent as soon as they are dropped in the box, which means sometimes it won’t be postmarked until the next day. But if you don’t receive your swap PLEASE message me. I have no problem resending if something gets lost or horribly damaged in the mail. I never want my swap partners to miss out on the happy in their mailbox! Also, because of health and transportation concerns I may be a day late with sending things out now and then. Though I will always try my hardest and will ALWAYS message you if something will be sent late.

——-

If anyone would like to do a private swap or penpal on a consistent basis, shoot me a message! I’m always down for more happy in my mailbox!

I also love a good competition show, like Blown Away, The Great British Baking Show, and such. I also watch a lot of home makeover type shows.

Favorite Music

I’ll listen to anything really from John Prine to Weezer. I enjoy checking out new music often, Though my knowledge of hip-hop or rap isn’t very extensive, my partner has been introducing it to me.

Some of my favorites off the top of my head are: Troye Sivan, BTS, Sleeping at Last, Jon Bellion, Tegan and Sara, Linkin Park, Twenty One Pilots, and Panic at the Disco.
