11/30/15 about my recent 3:

The swapper who has rated me a 3 has done so because I forgot to put my username and the swap title on the postcard... All of the requirements were otherwise met. I spoke with the swap coordinator and she felt it was unwarranted. I have talked to the swapper and she is unwilling in changing her mind. I may now have a 3-my first... HOWEVER. I am still going to be mature about this and hope that everyone reading this understands that I will continue to do my best to send out my best swaps and be a great swapper. We all make mistakes, and even if I find this unfair we are all entitled to our opinions. I am a bit disheartened by this situation but I LOVE to swap, and I am not giving it up because of this.

Several swappers have noted how ridiculous this situation is, and many can agree that this is not a fair reason to give a "3."

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

I just started a new hobby-YOUTUBE! I am just starting out, LINK IS ABOVE!

5-15-15 RIP to my Nigee kid, my furbaby cat of 14 years. May you rest in Paradise. You will always be so loved.

I do hauls, unboxings, taste tests, etc. Having fun with it. Feel free to check it out above ^

4 YEARS OF SWAP AWESOMENESS!!! 3-23-17!!! ^^ I can't believe it's been FOUR years, OMG.

Some of my many many hobbies include gaming, reading, writing, journaling, ATC-ing, drawing, and collecting. I collect everything.

I'm that person who you can send those weird things to-NOT easily offended.

I am NOT religious, but I find Buddhism and Hinduism interesting.

I love jokes and inspirational stuff too when it comes to letters and writing. We all have those bad days.

I can be kind of a geek, I suppose. I enjoy many activities and am not really your average teen. I've been doing LANs and am working on a home gaming environment currently.

I always send, I never flake, and I ALWAYS rate. Non-raters are almost half as bad as flakers. :/

I love all animals and creatures big and small! Even bugs. Yes. BUGS. Don't mind even a little bit. The buddhistic approach without the buddhistic practice.

I have been dating an awesome IT guy named Matt since June 2013 :)

And lastly, I guess I should say that I am here on swap-bot for fun! Finding new penpals perhaps, sending fun mail, and meeting cool people from around the US and beyond (: Come say Hi, I don't bite! ^^

Veganism

🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱

So I went vegan for a month last November [2016]. I kept a journal for that month and documented my feelings/things I noticed. It went very well - I felt great, experienced little to no acne, headaches, or other ailments. My vitals have also become better-my blood pressure has lowered a bit.

I've been eating mostly vegan/plant-based since then. I am not 100 percent vegan - I make some exceptions for vitamins and other things and have not converted my complete life into this way of living.

I am not trying to convert anyone to this lifestyle but if you'd like to talk about it/offer advice - by all means - I'm all ears!

It is now February 2017 and I am trying it again. :)

🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱🌎🏕️🐾⛰️🌱

YOUTUBE! WOOT!

YOUTUBE!

I started a Youtube channel-go check it out if you have some time. I do fun little videos and will be doing gaming soon hopefully!

My channel name is CHRISTAMAGE ^^

A subscribe would be super awesome!

I also have a twitter and instagram dedicated to my youtubing-both are Christamage as well! Feel free to poke around!

Motivate me!

So over the years I've struggled with my weight, due to bad eating habits and being a couch potato that never exercised. Towards the end of high school I decided to make a change, and I'm never looking back.

MY STORY:

At my heaviest I weighed 230 lbs... Even at 5' 11", that was considered obese. I had experienced cycles of binge-eating followed by cutting off food - a terrible cycle. I was at dangerous health risks before entering high school. Gym kicked my butt, and I had dropped down to 200 lbs by [around] sophomore year.

Junior/senior year was when I decided to join a local gym, and I began seriously working hard on my weight. I got down to around 180-190 lbs post-high school.

Entering my freshman year in college, I had so much coursework and stress and I fell back into my old habits. The stress would make me want to eat, and then I would feel guilty about what I was eating and then end up eating more. I was definitely a binge-eater. Still between 180 and 190 lbs, I was overweight.

After leaving a degree that left me feeling overworked, underappreciated, and unsatisfied, I finally found a field of study I really loved. Sure there was still stress and all... But liking what you do makes things a lot better. I had more time to work on my body and health as well, and worked my way down to 170 lbs - a normal BMI!

Now, in 2016, I have reached 160 lbs, with my goal body weight in the near future! My blood pressure has gone down as well as my resting heart rate. I am able to participate in athletic activities I never used to be able to.

I have come so far, and it hasn't been easy. Every day I learn to love my body and become more mindful of my eating. I am working on indulging in foods I love without the guilt - a practice of meditation. I look forward to what the future holds for me, and I refuse to give up That's my story so far :)

Current Projects

Right now I am keeping SUPER BUSY with my internship and retail job... But when I am NOT doing that... I am working on:

-becoming a super amazing IT security specialist!

-experimenting with video editing/Youtube

-journal EVERY day (whatever medium that may be)

-make lots of art! ATCs, tiles, zentangles!

-transform into an optimist (67% complete)

-just have more FUN in life. :D

STUFF I LOVE [wish list ^^]

If it's a package swap, I'm really into...

-Arbonne items

-adult coloring postcards [So far I have Animal Kingdom [Millie Marotta], Tropical World [Millie Marotta], Harry Potter postcards, Animorphia, Tattoo color-in postcards, Tokidoki... I am still after all other coloring for adults postcards! :)

-ANYTHING from Lush Cosmetics

-Kawaii anything. Especially plushies and letter sets!

-Art materials: Copic markers, Prismacolor colored pencils.

-anything PUSHEEN! ^^

-Rick and Morty stuff: comics, T shirts, art...

-Bojack Horseman stuff

-Paperchase brand journals ARE THE BEST.

If the swap has a food theme / option...

-weird-flavored nut butters

-PB2

-pumpkin spice anything

-health bars / meal bars

-anything you can find at Trader Joe's [lol]

-Vegan / plant-based food items, especially CHOCOLATE!

ATCs

I love to draw! ATCs are a great way to use my creativity in a swap-able, share-able way(:

I prefer to hand-draw my ATCs because it is my preferred medium and keeps postage reasonable.

Some of my favorite media when creating ATCs or other art works are:

-Prismacolor colored pencil -mixed media -pencil

I love YOUR ART!!!

Sharing Artwork: For the record, I trade my artwork for FUN. I hope no one on swap-bot does this, but I do not wish to have my artwork sold by others for personal gain. I want this to be a fun and fair experience for everyone. So please only keep my artwork as something I am sharing with you. Do not attempt to sell, steal, or take credit for the things I create.

Comment: Thanks! Weird, I didn't think of this question as about a person too. My inspiration doesn't come from people either. I agree, I hate celebrity glorification, especially ones that are famous for being famous.

Comment: Thank you! Im totally looking into this line. Im always looking for vegan products. Im getting sick of companies one day testing and next day not. Testing is the bottom line for me. Im thinking vegan ..just thinking vegan products would never be tested but never say never, eh?

Comment: I love cinnabons too! I just had to force myself to walk back the cinnabon place in the mall at the food court last week. The sad thing is I had just picked up some fully loaded french fries. :( They were good, hehe!
