About Me

Greetings all!

I just finished my first 50 swaps! I have learned I have a few preferences. Please write on postcards. I appreciate everything I receive, but prefer more than just a quote. I am not overly fond of plastic washi or tourist cards (unless the swap calls for that).

My name is Tammy and I live in Knoxville, TN. I am a graduate student studying plant molecular genetics with a focus on bioconfinement. I work with ensuring that the use of genetically modified organisms will not harm ecosystems after release.

I am a long time snail mail lover but new to swap bot. I adore getting mail, but really love knowing I'm sending happiness more! I hope to make new connections through these swaps.

My hobbies include reading scientific articles, postcrossing, gardening, playing Magic: the Gathering, playing board games, making art, and now swapbot!

Things I like!
*Herbal tea, hot chocolate, and coffee
*Basically any candy, please no gelatin
*Succulents and other plants
*Weird/Strange Items
*Cute flower pots
*Something you found outside (check that you aren't moving insects!)
*Trinkets for my office

Favorite postcards
*Animals (hedgehogs, wolves, red pandas, and snakes are my favorites!)
*Anything science related
*Any art, especially from local artists
*Succulents and carnivorous plants
*Vintage art
*Totoro and friends
*Star wars and other sci fi!
*The strangest cards you have found

Favorite Music:
Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, 10 years, Halestorm, Motionless in White, Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Three Days Grace, Bullet for my Valentine, Melanie Martinez, etc

Favorite books:
American Gods, Handmaid's Tale, Red Rising

Favorite podcasts:
Stuff to Blow Your Mind, How Stuff Works, Stuff Your Mom Never Told You

Favorite Movies:
anything Marvel/DC, LotR, Star Wars, studio Ghibli, V for Vendetta, Watchman

Favorite Television:
Criminal Minds, Handmaid's Tale, Black Mirror, Jessica Jones, Game of Thrones, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note, Attack on Titan, Bleach, Blue Exorcist, Deadman Wonderland

Favorite crafts:
watercolor, sewing, altering M:tG cards, wood burning, shirt making, etc. I'll try any craft once!

I am vegetarian, so please take that into account when picking edible surprises (no gelatin)!
Please no "religious" symbols, but obscenity is fine!

Ideas for topics in postcards:
What is your favorite recipe?
What is your favorite place to go or memory What is something interesting about your culture?
Were you told any cool stories as a child?
What is your favorite band/book/show and why What are you looking forward to?
What are you afraid of?
What is your job?
What are your hobbies?
What is the strangest thing you did or saw recently?
If you could write one law and pass it what would it be?
What do you wish you'd learned earlier?
What is your favorite pet story?

I always be sure to send my things as soon as possible after partners are assigned, but in the event that you are waiting on a swap from me for awhile please just email me! I will try my hardest to make it right. No one wants bad ratings!

Have a wonderful day!

You owe b&w PCs for weeks 32 & 36. Please send them out to your partner. It isn't fair they didn't receive from you.
