I will be finishing up the swaps I have in progress and taking a short break from swap-bot for two reasons. I have a lot if things going on in my life in the next few weeks that require almost all my time, and I've been having issues with my mailman/ post office and just want to find a solution to that and follow up on any sent swaps that never rated me to make sure they were received before I join more swaps. The rest of my swaps I'm currently in will be taken to the large post office by my new job to bypass my known problems. I live with my boyfriend of over four years in Florida (with entirely too many pets). I'm new to swapbot but have been swapping at another favorite site of mine, Postcrossing, for a while now. I also love writing long letters to my pen pals and am always looking for more. I love all candy except nuts and raisins. I'm not in college this semester but I'm a double major student of Biology and Foreign Languages- Biology because I love all plants, animals, and nature, and Foreign Languages because I love to travel and want to learn as many as I can (although I only am fluent in English and Spanish at the moment, I also speak a little Italian and Swahili). I love anything that shows me your culture or anything typical of where you live. Depending on your outlook on life, I'm either a very interesting person or a big hippie weirdo. Since I have so many interests and am a very positive person, I'm easy to please and will probably love whatever you sent me as long as it was chosen with thought.
I really love any and all music, especially anything with pounding bass or really strong vocals. I like any artist with a great, powerful voice, especially Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, etc. And for the bass I like Drake, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Usher, Miguel, Pitbull, and a lot more. But I also like country music, rock, classical, reggaeton, bachata and any other Spanish music, reggae (Bob Marley is my favorite of all time), and most other music.
My favorite author is Paulo Coelho and I love all his books but The Alchemist most of all. I've recently read and loved The Time Traveler's Wife, Anthem, Shutter Island, Chocolat, and many more that I can't think of at the moment. I could also reread Harry Potter infinitely. I also loved the Hunger Games series, The Secret Life of Bees, The Help... that's all I can think of right now.
My boyfriend and I love to watch The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Key and Peele, Broad City, South Park, Family Guy, The League, House, Friends, Orange is the New Black, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, etc.
Since I love to write letters I also love stationery, washi tape, postcards, paper, stickers- anything like that! I keep a Project Life scrapbook so i would be grateful for any cute cards, alphabet stickers (especially 3D) and ephemera to stick in that. I'm new to atcs and all those other crafts but was already a pretty good artist so I'm not terrible at them. I also like anything nature, plant, or animals related- seeds, botanical and zoological prints, little bits of nature. Since I love to travel I'd be happy to see where you come from and what's special about your life and your culture. I like anything mysterious (abandoned building, ruins and ancient cultures) and I love anything witchy or related to pagan religions because I'm a pagan.
My garden (it's BIG and I start a lot of unusual flowers and veggies under lights in the house so lots of work), I would love to grow cut flowers for a living someday and especially love zinnias, dahlias, and anything fairytale or cottage looking (foxgloves, canterbury bells). I love getting seeds! Including those from your own plants and garden. My other hobbies are too numerous to list but they include my pets, Post crossing, writing letters and pen pals, travel and adventure, Netflix, drawing, cooking, reading, horseback riding once in a blue moon when I get a chance, and my loving, petulant boyfriend, who luckily is willing to put up with a weirdo like me because he's one too.
I love: chocolate, Gummi candy, anything fruity, tea, stationery and paper stuff, your culture and any languages you might know, postcards and souvenirs I can put on my desk, all types of people- tell me anything, no judgement, and I will not be offended by funny offensive slogans or artful nudity. I would LOVE to receive things typical to other cultures, yours or from somewhere you've traveled, but am especially interested in: Anything about ancient Egypt or any ancient culture, Anything related to Mayan or Aztec culture, Anything related to Cuba for my Cuban boyfriend, Anything related to Native American, especially the tribes that inhabited your area, Anything Jamaican or related to Bob Marley and the Rastafarian weed/pot culture there, Anything African. MY FAVORITE THKNGS TO RECIEVE AND BIGGEST WISHES: I can't find airmail labels here so I'll love you forever if you send me some. Or anything with a mail/ air mail theme, really. I also would LOVE to receive stamps (especially vintage or unusual) and washi tape including samples, something yummy, project life cards, high quality atcs, and postcards!
I hate: whole nuts (love peanut butter) and coffee... I think that's it. I am really easy to please.
Although I haven't been on here VERY long, everyone has been absolutely lovely so far and very generous and honest. I hope things will continue that way, and for my part, I won't say how important honesty is to me or that I will never flake because that's exactly what flakes seem to write on their profiles. But I will tell you that: 1. Many pagans (myself included) believe that everything that you put into the world will come back to you threefold, positive or negative. 2. Ratings speak volumes. For this reason, please CONTACT ME! if you feel your swap should have arrived by now. That way I can track it down if it was sent at the post office and be proactive about making up for possible lost mail sent through the mailbox. I'd rather resend a "lost" swap and have you receive both of them than make you wait several weeks to make sure a swap is lost before replacing it (in the case of mailbox mail, again... Anything large and higher cost is sent tracked at the post office and we'll track it down together). I will also do my best as time allows to track packages and send messages to people who may forget to rate to make sure my partners have received my swaps expediently. Whew, done with all the non-fun technical stuff! Happy swapping!
Any japanese or MT tape really, anything with technical sketches of plants, animals, or anything (like the MT encyclopedia tapes), anything with space or the planets, animals, plants and flowers, insects, travel, mail, any shaped tape, lace, vintage, really any interesting patterns or phrases, neon colors, some samples of what you think are interesting tapes for someone who has a pretty good-sized collection.
Happy to receive blank cards in envelope swaps, but otherwise I prefer them sent naked and stamped and just a little mail-worn. I especially love map cards, unusual and exotic animals (like the monkeys that sit in the hot springs in Japan), a beautiful view, something indicative of your area and culture with a message about it from you on the back, non tourist cards to send out (impossible to find here), shaped cards, cards with a cutout. Whatever you think is an awesome postcard! But if you send it blank please don't be offended if I send it out after a few months of looking at it in my postcard box... it means I thought it was too beautiful for just me and my boyfriend to see and had to share it :)
