Hello, I'm Claire, a California girl, born and raised. I'm from San Jose, however, I currently attend San Diego State University and I am studying to become a speech therapist.
I just turned 20 which is crazy to me because now I have to adjust to no longer being a teenager! I think I will feel like I am 18 forever.
I have a long-term boyfriend who I have been with for four years and we are currently doing long distance while I finish school. I am excited to be a member of this community and share my love for mail and new friends!
Since I am new to this community I welcome constructive criticism and helpful suggestions! If I make any mistakes or do anything to offend you it will never ever be on purpose, please feel free to contact me.
I like a lot of things so typing it into words is quite a struggle for me! I love food: mac n cheese, pizookies, Doritos, taco bell, chick fil a, piroshki's (you can look it up😉), and practically anything with cheese on it.
Although I am a city girl I do love visiting nature on camping trips (especially national parks), flowers, and succulents...especially cacti, aloe, and other desert plants. I love sloths, cats, dogs, and animals in general. There is not an animal I do not love. I am not afraid of bugs.
My favorite color is lilac purple but my room is decorated mainly white with touches of pink. I love any color if is pastel because I think pastel is SO CUTE!
I also love to DIY whatever I can and have picked up anything from macrame to building a bed out of IKEA shelves. I used to paint/sew/knit/crochet/etc. a lot more when I was younger but im learning more creative adult outlets now. I LOVE adult coloring books.
I bullet journal when I have the time, and I love how I can incorporate art into it. I collect pens/highlighters/stationary for my bullet journal and also for personal projects.
I watch a lot of youtube but I am especially into true crime and mystery. This includes unsolved cases, conspiracy theories, missing persons, ghosts, and other creepy/interesting stuff. While I don't watch a lot of actual HORROR movies (I prefer thriller and suspense) like macabre themes.
I collect pressed pennies, rocks/minerals, coins, stickers, stationery stuff, and letters. I always felt like I collected journals as well because of how often I bought them and how little I used them, haha.
ANY religious work is welcome! I myself am a Christian but I love to hear about other cultures, religions and histories so please don't hesitate when it comes to your faith.
★Artist Trading Cards★
I just recently started making ATC's. I have been crafting/painting my whole life and I cant believe I didn't know these existed! I love the idea of putting an artistic vision into one tiny little space.
I have only really experimented with collage and painting so far but as I make more I am excited to branch out :)
There is nothing that I HATE, and even if I'm not a fan I will appreciate your thought and hard work. However, I'm not into anime, zombies, kpop, neon, country/cowboy, or guns/shooting. I would also rather not receive anything extremely political unless you feel really compelled to share.
★Stuff I like to watch/loved watching★
Friends, The Office, Grey's anatomy, Haunting of Hill House, Stranger Things, Criminal Minds, Black Mirror, Jane The Virgin, Great British Baking Show, New Girl, Breaking Bad, The Good Place, Veronica Mars, Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings
I have included some of my social media accounts in case you would like to learn a little more about me.

★Me when I get your letter:★
If you don't know who this is, it's the man from Blue's Clues who sings "we just got a letter" :)
