I am currently pregnant, so my mental energy is tied up in that! But I love getting fun mail :)
I love to read, knit, and dance (though dancing is kind of out of the question right now, the pregnancy has really messed up my center of gravity!)
My husband and I aim for a pretty minimalist lifestyle, so not much in the way of decorative stuff laying around, and I really prefer to surround myself with only what is useful, and not much more.
I work in risk management, so I am a numbers nerd who works with spreadsheets all day. I really love it. I feel like every day I get to do something that really impacts the success of my company. And I love that feeling.
I am a relentlessly positive person, and have very little room in my life for whining and complaining. I don't see the point. It doesn't fix anything and it's a downer.
I love to read, though my job has kept me crazy busy for the past few years, so I don't read as much as I used to. I expect the combination of job plus babies will have an even greater impact. That said, I do love mysteries - especially ones set in exotic places I would like to visit some day.
I also read lots of career planning self improvement type books. Yes, I know they are hokey, and I don't take them too seriously, but it keeps me pumped up and focused on improving myself and looking for great opportunities.
I work full time and am pregnant, so it takes me a while to answer letters. I do eventually write back, but babies and work come first, you know?
I type my longer letters, so if you prefer pen pals who hand-write, I'm just telling you now, I'm not your girl. :)
Also, please don't send me friendship books, I'm not in that scene and wouldn't have anywhere to send them on to!
I'm pretty much monogamous with knitting. I can crochet, and will bust it out on occasion, I know my way around a sewing machine or a spinning wheel... but when it comes right down to it, I prefer to knit.
