DISCLAIMER: I am human and I do make mistakes. If I made a mistake on a swap, or worse, it does not get to you at all, please email me before rating and I will resend no questions asked :) If I will be late in sending a swap I will reach out to you before the swap deadline to let you know!
Hey fellow Swappers! I am Cindy, and I am a 21-year-old female from the USA. I am currently in college/university and I am studying to become a teacher.
I started pen paling when I was 13, and I have loved it ever since! However, now I want to do more snail mail than email so this website seemed perfect for that!
Some things that are very importent to be include my academics, family, friends, my pets, and my sorority. Some things that I love are music, cats, and Disney!
As of recently I am a washi tape enthusiast (my friends often joke saying I have a problem). I have about 200 roles! I also love going to craft shops now, especially hobby lobby where there is usually a sale on most items! I usually always include washi tape samples in my letters to share my love of it! Other than washi tape I also love stationary and tags.
I am not too artsy sadly but I am working on learning how to better decorate my letters and envelopes. I also started making my own envelopes!
Now to relax after studying I often watch pen pal videos such as pen pal with me, tips and tricks, and what my pen pals sent me videos. I also scroll through swap bot a lot now! As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, it is always good to stay busy!
I am looking forward to pen paling with you all and I will stay up to date on these things! So if there's a chance your letter may have a slight delay, I will let you know ASAP! I am also 100% okay with late mail! I understand that things happen! Also, it is fair to mention that my ratings MAY be a bit late because my letters are sent to my home address then are sent to me in a package from my parents to my school so don't worry! I did not forget about you and I apologize!
Lastly, I am not picky about what I get in the mail! I will never dislike it! Have an amazing day and happy pen paling!
I swap because it makes me happy and keeps me busy. As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, it is always important to stay busy so the mean depression and anxiety do not take over!
In July of 2013, I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (a form of anxiety). I have been treated for it ever since. I got off treatment for a while but then things got bad again in November of 2017. In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with Depression and I am treated for that as well.
I want the stigma of mental illness to end, or at least diminish because I am still a normal person. I am in school, I have hobbies, friends, and I go out. I share my story so others can share theirs. Feel free to email me if you want to share your story or just want someone to talk to! Let's get through this together!
I am sadly not very crafty but I have started to make my own envelopes. I want to learn how to make pocket letters and other things I see on YouTube.
I am also learning how to make bookmarks using washi tape and popsicle sticks.
However, I LOVE getting crafts! I recently got a crotcheted heart coaster (shout out to the woman who made it) and it made my day! THose who are crafty give me motivation to become more crafty!
I do not drink tea a lot but I woud love to try tea from around the world! I like little snacks in the mail but my biggest fear is that it would melt.
I do not think i am allergic to anything but to be safe I would like to stay away from mango flavored foods since i may be allergic to that. I had a reaction to a mango when I was younger.
I also love getting little knick knacks such as magnets in my mail because it is so cute! I would do that more if I was not in college and could spend more money on postage and packaging.
For those of you who are interested, I have a pen pal instagram! It is @cindyssnailmail ! Follow my journey with me and I post updates on there like if i have to take a break from pen paling and other things like that.
I put the link in my profile!
I NEVER rate less than a 5! As someone who has been threatened with a low rate (I was dealing with my heath and the death of two friends at the time), I feel it is important to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. We do not know each other's stories. So I would like to ask everyone to consider doing the same! Or consider them resending! I feel like getting something in the mail is always nice, regardless of how long it takes or if we like it or not. But of course, that is just me :)
I would love to get pen pals out of Swap Bot, though I know it is not really for that. However, I would prefer if they are female ages 19-26! I have gotten at least one from here and would love more!
Likes: Washi Samples (I never use them, just admire them. So it is okay if you cannot send a lot) Journal Cards Postcards Tea Cats Stickers Tags Labels Disney (Especially Winnie the Pooh)
Dislikes: Dr. Seuss Lizards Coffee
I want to note I will not rate down if i happen to get these items!
12/20/19 Two of my friends recently passed away and I was diagnosed with depression so I apologize if you did not get "great" swaps from me. I am trying my best! But I am willing to resend now since I am in a better mindset.
02/07/20 I may be taking a break from swapbot starting in March. So after these swaps I am in, chances are I will be logging off for a bit, so I will not be making any swaps at that time either. But I still do not know about that yet. I may change my mind.
02/12/20 College is really kicking my butt and I need to focus! I am sorry that I am taking a break! I enjoy it here but it is needed!
03/05;/20 Looks like I am not taking a break! This just makes me too happy!
03/12/20 Hey everyone! Due to the Corona Virus, my University will be shutting down for about two weeks. I will try to bring at least most of my pen pal stuff with me. But please be aware I do not know how this will affect the mailing system. I hope swaps keep happening and that I can keep up with them, but if not I will let you know and I apologize for the inconvenience.
03/21/20 Well, so due to Corona, school has closed for the rest of the semester and now all classes will be online for the time being. I am really sad about it because I love being at school. Tomorrow I am going to clean out my room, including getting all of my pen pal supplies. So I apologize if anything is late, especially if I accidentally left it at school.
