About Me

Hi!!!

Emilia here, 26 years old.

I live in Jyväskylä, Finland, with my small cat Mana, whose hobby is to sleep on my neck forgetting she's no longer a tiny kitten, and to 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've been too busy to focus on them, and so I can only fluently speak Finnish and English. I have however studied Swedish and German, so you can write simple things in those languages to me as well! I read both better than I speak them though, so don't expect skillful fluent answers, haha.

🚨 **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. Our mail doesn't move on weekends, and for some reason, Tuesdays. I can't keep track of all the outgoing mail after I send it, so just let me know if something hasn't arrived and I'll be happy to resend if possible.

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 from many genres. The only thing I don't really like that much is rap and really slow 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
  • NAVIBAND
  • American Authors
  • Värttinä
  • Panic! At the Disco
  • Ninja Sex Party
  • Hozier

Etc etc.

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.

I'm mostly into fantasy series like

• Harry Potter • Lord of the Rings • Legend of Drizzt • The Dark Tower • Discworld • Shades of Magic

etc.

Outside of fantasy I like books such as Pride & Prejudice, books about old folk traditions and mythical creatures, lesbian romances, and books about real things and events around the world. Less so about war. If it's a woman written book with a female lead that isn't all about loving some random guy she just met and who's so m y s t e r i o u s, it's got a pretty good chance to be good with me. Add magic themes and you're extremely good.

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 • Brides' story

etc.

Western comics I like a lot:

• Sandman • Saga • Dragon age comics • Moomins • One-book publishments from solo artists

• I learned to read with the Donald Duck comics, as most Finnish kids my age did. • 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 pockets of all kinds are always appreciated. I'm really into stickers, all kinds of colorful, fun and cute, or naturalistic like plants and forest animals etc. In postcards, I prefer drawn things rather than photographs, especially with animals and people!

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! Fantasy and magic themes are also always good, as well as paintings made into postcards and other art pieces like that. I'm especially a fan of Helene Schjerfbeck and Gustav Klimt's art.

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, and catchy fast chorus-filled song&dance sequences are the best! (Broadway type music.) 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

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

I enjoy cartoons a lot, especially the following, but also anything from the 1990's to the early 2000's.

• Moomins • Sailor Moon • Krtek (or Mole, idk what the show is called in English) • Winnie the Pooh • Ducktales • Disney etc. Animated movies • Pippi Långstrump • Pokémon • Gravity falls • X-Men Evolution • Paddington Bear

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 absolutely adore elves and tieflings)
  • Fantasy and magic
  • Animals
  • Puns and really dumb funny jokes
  • Collecting silly little stuff that I'm never going to use but it makes me smile
  • Cool postcards (any kind that's not an ad or a boring black&white scenery)
  • Colorful things
  • Memes
  • Folklore; stories, outfits, songs and rhymes, etc.
  • 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 would be great, but other kinds are welcome too!)
  • Stickers
  • Rhubarb, berries, sweet and sour, vanilla, melon, spicy things, honey, etc.

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
  • Oolong
  • Flavored green & sencha
  • White
  • yellow
  • chamomile (but i have a TON already)
  • chai and other spiced
  • tbh, just surprise me. I'm open for loose teas etc, as long as it's fresh and cleanly packaged.

DISLIKES:

  • Mint/peppermint
  • licorice
  • unflavored teas
  • herbal infusions

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 or something I already mentioned liking.
  • No allergies, but I strongly dislike ginger, lychee and passion fruit
  • Religious stuff that's meant to convert, but I don't mind you showing your own celebration of things, that's fun and interesting to hear!
  • Homophobic/racist/offensive things.
  • Scary images (especially horror faces, my nightmares and imagination is very face-focused and I will rememeber them for years)
