About Me

Hi!!!

Emilia here, 25 years old and a complete nerd.

Find me crying over my thesis work in your local library. No, I live in Jyväskylä, Finland, with my small cat Mana, whose hobby is to sleep on me and walk over everything I put on the table. She's really cute and stubborn and I love her.

I'm really into art, books, and video games. I also like languages and folktales/traditions/outfits a lot.

While I love learning languages, I'm currently too busy to focus on them, and so I can only fluently speak Finnish and English. I have however studied Swedish and German, and began self-studying Korean, so you can write simple things in those languages to me as well! (Really simple things in the case of Korean, haha)

I appreciate funny things and stuff that tastes good, or with crafts, colorful cute things and things i can get really hands-on into.

🚨 **NOTICE** 🚨

I send my swaps on time and mark them as "Sent" on the day I've paid for them and left them in the out-going mailbox. However, due to my country having few actual post offices, I pay for and leave my mail in a corner shop which does everything that a post office does - except stamping. So, whatever I send will NOT be stamped until a few days later, or at all. This is 100% out of my control, so don't give me a bad rating for that, Please. Really. Honestly.

The mail in Finland is very slow, so please contact me before rating if you don't receive your mail for some time.

Also, I try to ask for pretty stamps when I bring a letter in, but usually they just take the letter once I pay, and stick something on it behind the counter and drop it to the box before I can see it, so if you get that ugly text sticker instead, I'm sorry ;;v;;

My Etsy wishlist is linked at the top of the page, so you can get some ideas from there for what sort of things I like!

Favorite Music

I listen to a lot of music in a big mess that is one single playlist of my entire life, so don't even ask me to make sense of that.

The only thing I don't really like that much is Finnish rap, and maybe some american country songs. Otherwise I'm pretty good with all music. But my favorites are folk, pop/rock, indie, and soundtracks/musicals.

Example bands I REALLY like:

  • CoCo and the Butterfields
  • Florence + the Machine
  • Samuli Putro
  • Poets of the Fall
  • Celtic Woman
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Jamala
  • NAVIBAND
  • American Authors

Favorite Books

I collect books, but I read really slowly, so I have about half a bookshelf of unread books that I haven't gotten to yet. Generally I don't give a shit about "classic must read's", and just go with what I like, but I have to admit I end up liking some classics too. Shrug.

I'm mostly into fantasy series like

• Harry Potter • Lord of the Rings • Legend of Drizzt • The Dark Tower • Terry Pratchett's books • Shades of Magic

etc.

Outside of fantasy I like books such as Pride & Prejudice, books about old folk traditions, lesbian romances, and books about real things and events. I don't know, I suddenly cannot come up with anything but fantasy.

I'm also really into comics, both western and manga.

Manga I like a lot:

• Fullmetal Alchemist • Ranma • Yona of the Dawn • D.Gray-man

etc.

Western comics I like a lot:

• Sandman • Saga • various other one-book publishments • Donald duck is something I literally grew up on, so definitely that. • I casually like the X-men and Spiderman comics but I don't follow the plot in order or know much about them all, I just am interested in the characters.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy anything I can get really hands-on with, so that kind of stuff is always fun! I'm really into stickers too, all kinds of colorful, fun and cute, or naturalistic like plants and forest animals etc.

I draw a lot, both digitally and on paper, so any drawing-related things are more than welcome, as well as things to decorate notebooks, letters and calendars with. I really like natural color shades, but overall I'm a fan of all colors, as long as there's a lot of it! Splashes of color are very cool. Anything that involves women or comics or games is an instant like from me!

Favorite Movies

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I adore animation and musicals! Anything with a good captivating story outside of just romance is a sure way to catch my attention! Not super into stories focused around romance, unless it leaves the men out of the equation completely, haha.

Podcasts!! I listen to some fun podcasts like

• Potterless • The Adventure Zone • Critical Role

etc.

I would be more than happy to see something related to them as well!

Things I like in general

  • Video games!! (Kingdom Hearts, Team Ico games, Final Fantasy, Dragon Age, Persona, Zelda etc.)
  • Board and card games, like D&D and Magic the gathering (I main the green/red/white combinations)
  • Animals
  • Puns and really dumb jokes
  • Collecting fun old stuff that I'm never going to use
  • Cool postcards (any kind that's not an ad or a boring black&white picture)
  • Colorful things
  • Memes
  • Folklore and stuff about your hometown/area/people
  • W O M E N
  • Glitter, beads, pretty rocks etc etc.
  • Licorice (EXCEPT in tea, that's not to my liking.)
  • Fridge magnets (something related to your region, preferably! Can be pop culture stuff from your area too, or otherwise fun things you relate to your home area)

I'm more than happy to receive lesbian/other lgbt merch made by women, but less happy to receive queer merch made by men, no matter how cute it looks.


For teas:

LIKES: Black, Flavored green, White, yellow, chamomile, chai and other spiced ones, surprise me. I'm open for loose teas etc, as long as it's fresh and cleanly packaged/not suspicious looking.

DISLIKES: Mint/peppermint, licorice, plain green, herbal infusions, plain rooibos (interesting flavors are good! I don't hate rooibos either, I've just drank it so much I grew tired of the taste)

Things I DON'T like

  • Rude people
  • Elitism over things people send
  • Bugs
  • Babies
  • Stuff focused on men unless it's fanworks of fictional characters
  • No allergies, but I strongly dislike ginger, lychee and passion fruit
  • Strongly religious stuff
  • Homophobic stuff
  • Scary images (especially faces, those will haunt my nightmares for years NO THANK YOU)
  • Non-edible things that have a strong smell (like scented candles etc, mild smell of like fragrance on paper is fine, use your own judgement, I won't be mad even if it's a miss)
