About Me

As you can probably see, I've been on hiatus for all of 2019! I've been busy with life and only sending mail to penpals.

If I'm joining a swap that means I have the time to do it, so if you don’t get your letter/package from me, PLEASE MESSAGE ME FIRST before rating and I will make plans to resend/send compensation. I will try and message you first to check up on the mail I’ve sent, but due to the nature of my work (12-18 hours a day, 5-6 days a week) I don’t always have the time afterwards to keep track of that kind of thing, so please bear that in mind.


Hi there! My name is Selena, and I'm a independent filmmaker and professional camera assistant in the film industry. On my time off (when I have it haha) I am obsessed with getting back into my hobbies, travelling, camping, roadtripping, anything that will get me out into the world!

I'm a lover of films, books, shows, theatre, video games, board games, journalling, letter writing, collage art, scrapbooking, and writing amongst other things!

Favorite Books

I really need to take a good look at my library and make a list of books that I have, but I find that I enjoy most well written books that I can learn something from that isn't discriminatory towards any group or preaching a religion. However, 9 times out of 10 I will choose a stand-alone book over a series, I need an ending that is within reach! Series that go on forever bother me because no matter what I need the security of a conclusion. I will not say no to a series, but I am more weary of them (especially if they go over a trilogy and the series isn't completely out yet!)

Guilty loves? Mystery/Crime/Thriller. Commitment loves? Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Slowly getting into? Non-Fiction life stories and/or city tales. Picky but I love the format? Graphic Novels! My ultimate I-don't-care-I'll-enjoy-it-somehow? INTERACTIVE BOOKS!

You can also check out my goodreads account for my recent reads! I haven't put up my entire collection on there yet though.

My No-No's

Don't have many! I don't have any allergies, and there isn't much that I wouldn't appreciate. However, I must state that I will not accept anything that:

  • is discriminatory against a group or a person based on race/sex/orientation/religion/diet.
  • is preaching any religion
  • is graphic pornography. Artistic nudity is OK.

I also have some things that I won't necessarily be bothered if I get, but I would just prefer not to since I won't put them to any use (they'll get given away/donated)

  • Earrings or jewellery in general that isn't necklaces, my ears aren't pierced and I don't wear rings / bracelets.
  • 3D/Puffy stickers
  • Loose Glitter
  • Sports things/theme
  • Wedding stuff/theme
  • Baby stuff/theme

waldfee rated for amaZINE #1 - fairy tales on Aug 7, 2018
Comment: Very cool to write about all that background information on the fairy tale. I didn't know about it at all and I totally agree: it makes me like the story and H.C. Andersen even better <3 Thanks a lot!
Response: I’m very glad you liked it! A lot of people (just like myself not too long ago) don’t know about it and it makes the story that much more impactful and interesting! ♥
