About Me

UPDATE: I will be inactive for quite a while due to thesis. If you need any resends, etc. feel free to email me at [email protected] Thanks.

Hello! I'm Ar-Em.

I am mainly an animation student juggling thesis and internship / tea > coffee / I love cats and I currently have a lucky (yet terribly antisocial) calico named Vircci / I adore anything vintage or floral / As much as I find bananas cute, I don't really eat much of them / I'm currently trying to get into a zero-waste lifestyle; I think I'm failing badly / I'm a bit scared of heights / I currently have 3 succulents and organic mint

Favorite Music

I am quite eclectic when it comes music genres. I do like indie folk and a bit of indie rock the most, but I'm open to listen and to discover other genres, musicians and songs, e.g. I just discovered K-pop a few days ago and I am now rather fond of BTS.

Favorite Books

For non-fiction, I mostly read self-help and inspirational books. For fictional, I tend to go for YA but really, as long as it has an interesting premise, I am willing to read it.

If you would like to know specifics on the books I like, please head over to my Book Wish List, which I update regularly based on the books I find: http://a.co/1JNSSgf

Favorite Movies

In general, I love watching horror and psychological thriller films. Strangely though, whenever I'm asked to give a specific title, I notice that I go for films that are light-hearted and aesthetically pleasing, like ''Ruby Sparks,'' ''The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'' and ''Spirited Away.''

Favorite Television

I love Halloween-inspired or gothic series, such as ''Hannibal,'' ''Gravity Falls'' and ''Over The Garden Wall,'' but I am open to other genres (again, I am rather eclectic when it comes to genres).

Currently I am following ''Stranger Things,'' ''Game of Thrones,'' ''RWBY,'' ''Rick and Morty,'' ''Steven Universe,'' ''Voltron'' (I am still not updated though) and ''Little Witch Academia.'' I also plan to rewatch previous DC animated series, specifically surrounding Batman, Teen Titans and Justice League.

  • decorative paper
  • dream catchers
  • dried flowers

You can also send me dried catnip/catmint or cat toys for Vircci. She'd love that.

Before you rate me...

Please do note that the Philippine post office is notorious for being terribly slow; it is an actual ''snail'' mail. It may take weeks, even months before the package reaches you. To make up for it though, I am willing to give you an electronic swap to your liking, to make the wait a bit more bearable.

For electronic swaps, if I end up sending it late or if you feel that what I sent didn't meet the swap requirements, I deeply apologize for the inconvenience and if there's anything I can do to make up for it, please do tell me.

I was updating my swaps from the last 6 months and realized that I never received a board from you for the last minute gift ideas. Can you please resend it? I don't like to give out 1's especially on older swaps

arembanas on Jan 21, 2018:

@bstrong Hi! If I haven't rated you, it simply means I haven't received anything yet. Feel free to resend (I was planning to wait until February before messaging you).

bstrong on Jan 21, 2018:

Would be great if you could rate me for the Christmas card swap that I sent to you on November 12 and for the Quotecard Postcard Swap that I sent to you on November 21. Thank you in advance.
