Musical Interests

I love listening to almost all types of music. I have an eclectic music collection and I enjoy discoverying new genres of music to listen to or new artists. I think it is so fun and cool to discover a new genre, band or vocalist that I have never heard of before. I like country, rap, hip-hop, classical, jazz, blues, bluegrass, metal, punk, ska and the list just goes on. I like knowing other peoples playlists, what they are currently into and their all time favorites. So I will put and example of music that I do not enjoy. There is a piano composition called 4:33 where the pianist plays nothing for 4 minutes and 33 seconds. I do not know what the composer was thinking but maybe they wanted people to react to the silence and the pianist not playing. I do not like this style of music. I have played various instruments since I was 5 years old. Piano, flute, oboe and cello are all instruments I learned to play in the past. Currently I am learning to play the viola and guitar. I hope with the viola is to have a classical training and then branch into learning how to fiddle the viola.

Not Into, No Thank You

I am not a fan of real domestic cats. I say real domestic to mean the living animal that people keep as pets. I just have never liked them very much. I am okay with fictional cats and big cats (lions, panthers etc). Such as the cats from the musical Cats. I actually really like them. As well as the Thunder Cats (I like both versions 1985 and 2011). So, real pet cats NO, animated and fictional cats YES, big cats yes:)

Thumbs Up

I am a little reluctant to put something on this list: #1-I truly like most things, so unless it is stated on my "Dislikes" I would enjoy it. #2-I do not want to stifle anyone's creative process in producing their swap. I also want my swap partner to have fun creating. So the list below is only some things that I like slightly more than other things. If you gave me something off of this list I would be just as happy! #3-I like variety and would hate to only receive things on this list :)

That being said below is a list of things I enjoy a little more than average: *hedgehogs *bison/buffalo *comic books *manga and anime *boardgames *narwhals *beetles and scarabs *skulls (real, cartoon and Dia de los Muertos) *All Saints Day and Dia de los Muertos Celebrations *matadoras/toreras *tribal, ethnic and cultural art *things written in Sanskrit, Arabic, Hebrew, Kanji, Kana, Mayan, Egyptian (basically languages not using the Latin Alphabet) *frogs *turtles *honey bees, bumble bees and yellow jackets *enjoy journaling *pen palling *letter writing

What I Like to Read

I am not a fan of the romance genre. While I will read from almost any genre the following I tend to read more often: thrillers, suspense, mystery, paranormal, fantasy, alternative history and science fiction. I also like to read "How To" books.

About Me

Greetings, I enjoy snail mail. In general I normally decorate my envelopes and write medium to long letters. But I am very okay with receiving any type of snail mail. I also like telling personal stories in my letters (in hopefully an entertaining manner). I like receiving postcards from all over the world. I have been crafting since I was a little girl. But I still consider myself an amateur crafter. I enjoy learning new things and having new experiences. I also enjoy music playlists, books to be read lists, currently watching on tv lists, best movies lists and collecting food and drink recipes. I enjoy cooking and hosting dinner parties and cocktail parties. Enjoy sewing clothes and quilts. Have been wanting to learn to knit socks. I am into tabletop games: board games, RPGs, card games, video games etc. I am a comic book/manga lady. Some comics/manga that I really enjoy: Wonder Woman, Dragon Ball, Fables, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Squirrel Girl, Lady Snowblood. I enjoy photography and I consider myself an amateur. I enjoy both color and black and white and like instant photography like Polaroid. I enjoy being in nature and nature based activities such as swimming in the ocean and lakes, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, park exploration, letterboxing, scavenger hunts. I enjoy the following sports: baseball (Go Atlanta Braves!!!), hockey, rugby (I like Fiji and New Zealand), jai-alai, UFC and water polo. I currently am learning how to keep a planted freshwater aquarium. I enjoy puzzles: such as logic, math, jigsaw and cryptograms. I also like doing extreme dot to dots (the kind that have at least 400 dots).

Beverages

I am really into drinking tea. I enjoy all types of tea, black, green, herbal, fruit, flower, fermented, white, red, yellow, chai, matcha and this list could go on and on! I like both hot and iced tea. It doe not matter to me if the tea is in bags or loose or compressed. I enjoy finding a tea that I normally cannot get such as one I find on my travels to different places or a blend from a local tea shop. I enjoy cider both hot and cold and sweet and hard. I especially enjoy ciders produced by local small businesses. Another drink I enjoy is ginger beer. So much better than ginger ale! I love carbonated water both with and without flavors. I love finding a new flavored carbonated water! I am not a fan of straight coffee but like coffee flavored drinks like frappes and lattes and macchiatos that are mainly not coffee:) I also enjoy studying maps, both old and new, fiction and non-fiction.

Things I Use

Below is a list of things that I use in my everyday life to create snail mail, happy mail, mail art, journals and crafts. *washi tape *stationery paper with fun, beautiful, or unique graphics (in general I usually like unlined paper and 8.5 by 11 inches (A4) *pages from travel, outdoors, fashion magazines *pages from comic books and manga or the funny pages from the newspaper, children's books, sheet music, *photographs (of pretty much any and all things both color and black and white) *seed packets *dried leaves and flowers *stickers *markers for coloring and hand lettering, pencils (both wood and mechanical .7 or .9 lead), colored pencils *envelopes of all sizes and colors both decorated and plain *used postage stamps *old fashion keys *maps

Comment: Thank you so much for this amazing letter!! I feel like writing my name in stickers may have depleted your sticker stash of letters lol. Both letters were so fun to read, but the first one I was questioning if the cat was a real one or a stuffed hahahaha If you ever want to try a craft swap with me to build your confidence, let me know :) :) :)
