About Me

Update: I do not deliberately send out swaps late; however, on 7/15, I got home from work and found my Guinea pig passed away in her cage. I came home to find both of my cats meowing/crying at the living room windows (loud enough for me to hear them in the parking lot). I ran upstairs to my apartment and found her. This caused me to drop a swap in the mail on Tuesday night when it should have been dropped in the mail on Monday which hurt someone's feelings (which in turn hurt my feelings). I just didn't have it in me to go on the site for a couple of days. It is now 7/21 and as of yesterday, I finally removed her cage (with the help of my boyfriend because I was still too sad to do it myself). Perhaps I just need a thicker skin for swapping. Perhaps the loss of a guinea pig should not have affected me as deeply as it had and I should have been able to just go about my business. I am aware that I am extremely emotional which can be difficult to deal with I guess. Anyway, my point to this is that we should treat each other with kindness and empathy always because 99% of what people do is not deliberate.

Ok, on to the profile...

I'm a ska kid that refuses to grow up.

I love going to shows (in and out of state). Nothing makes me happier than being able to somehow incorporate a road trip and a ska show. My next road trip is coming up in July when I drive to NJ for the weekend to see the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

I play a lot of video games. Nintendo is knocking it out of the park lately and I am counting the days until the new Fire Emblem game is released but there are probably half a dozen games on my list to buy this year. I will need a second job soon if these companies keep announcing games at this rate!

I also have a PS4, a Steam account, and am an avid Pokemon Go player.

Currently binge watching: One Piece and Hunter x Hunter

Favorite Books

The Warriors Series by Erin Hunter is my all time favorite book series. If you have not read it, you need to put it on your "must read" list!!!

I am also a big Harry Potter fan

Favorite authors include Jodi Picoult and Meg Cabot

I also really enjoy historical fiction, stories about anthropomorphic animals, true crime, anything on WW2/the Holocaust, and memoirs/autobiographical stories.

Favorite Movies

Kevin Smith is my favorite director and Clerks is my favorite View Askew movie.

I really enjoy Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the Hunger Games.

I am a huge fan of the MCU.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking and bead weaving are the two biggies. I make my own greeting cards/Christmas cards.

I also dabble in other crafts...making wreaths, photo frames, etc.

Next on the list is learning how to crochet as well as learning how to make Terrariums (I saw some Pokemon ones at comic con this past year and simply fell in love with them)

Collections

-Postcards
-Rubber duckies
-Lego minifigs
-POP! Funko
-Amiibos
-Enamel Pins

Postcard Preferences

I sign up for a lot of postcard swaps so thought it might be a good idea to list some of my preferences:

-Map cards
-Recipe cards
-Anything weather related (specifically lightning and tornadoes)
-Stadium cards
-Handmade cards
-Water related (waterfalls, bridges over rivers, etc.)
-Revere Beach/Revere, MA vintage cards (this is a very specific item in my collection as I grew up in Revere and collect all old Revere postcards. I have 70+ right now that I have found at various antique malls, etc.)

Favorite Vacation Spots

I love to travel! I don't do it as often as I like but I do have a few favorite spots:

-Gatlinburg, TN and the Great Smoky Mountains
-Las Vegas, NV
-Austin, TX

I would love postcards from my favorite places!!!

Likes

I do not expect extra goodies in the swaps I receive but I know that some like to include them so I thought I would list some likes/preferences:

-Postcards are always welcome! See my postcard preferences above but really, I'm happy with any postcards that you want to send.

-Washi tape. I am obsessed with washi. I use it a lot when I make cards.

-Anything Kawaii/anime related will be very well received. This includes stickers, stationary, etc. Just anything. Some current obsessions are Gudetama, Aggretsuko (I hope everyone watched season 2!!!!!), Bananya, My Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter...

-Enamel Pins are a new favorite of mine. If you can match a pin to my interest, I would for sure love it :)

I'll add more to this list as I think of more. Please, if it is not on this list, do not send it (unless we are partners in a swap that calls for something not on the list). I think it's really kind that everyone is so generous and includes extras in their swaps but I recently cleaned out my craft supplies, stickers, etc. and I do not want to build up the clutter again. I do not need extras to give hearts - I will give hearts a lot if you take the time to write a note on your postcard, if you match something to my interests, etc. Thank you! :)

Comment: Thank you. This was sent 2 days late. Be sure to notify your partners in the future. I could have rated a 3, but chose not to this time.
Response: You are correct that I dropped this in the dropbox of my apartment building on Tuesday night when it should have been shipped out on Monday. I apologize, I came home from work Monday and found my Guinea pig passed away in her cage so I was not thinking clearly. I rushed to get the swap in the mail but did not spend any length of time on the site for a few days because I just didn't have it in me. I asked my boyfriend to come over on Tuesday night to remove her from the cage (I just...couldn't) and before then, I didnt really do much of anything. That was the only swap I had that hadn't been sent out yet and I completely forgot the due date was monday until I logged onto the site Tuesday night to make sure I didnt have any swaps due... hopefully, you understand that I did not deliberately send out a swap late to be hurtful :(
