About Me

I'm a nerd from Finland. I've lived near or in Tampere most of my life but now I live near the capital in Vantaa. I'm a software developer and I love my job.

I'm a Kundalini Yoga teacher and spirituality is a very important part of my life. My spiritual name in the Kundalini tradition is Nam Dhyan Kaur which means "the one who meditates on the God's name".

I like see to myself as a very open person who doesn't take anything too seriously. I'm not easily offended and I appreciate dark humour. I have a husband and two cats. I'm an introvert and quite shy but I have learned to deal with it. Luckily I can work mostly from home. I also love board games, computer games (when I have the time), Pokemon Go, cooking and eating. I try to exercise regularly and I like to read.


  • Small, cute and pretty, possibly dangling earrings.
  • Address labels with my address.
  • Cruelty-free cosmetics (also bath & body). I love Lush! I don't use make up daily but I like it on special occasions.
  • Items related to any religion, especially Sikhism.
  • Things related to Eastern Orthodox Christianity for my husband.
  • Anything related to cats. In pictures I like adult cats better than kittens.
  • Cute socks (size European 38)
  • T-shirts (size M)
  • Clothing and items that are pretty and mostly white, I use them when I teach yoga and I like to wear white other times too
  • Estonian Kalev-chocolate, all dark flavours that don't contain milk, especially grapefruit
  • Tea (more info below)
  • Vegan treats
  • Vegan everything
  • Anything about nerd/geek interests

This is not a complete list of what I would enjoy to receive. :)

Please don't send

  • Anything with animal products (meat, milk, egg, gelatin, leather, fur, feathers, wool) because I'm vegan. I tolerate honey and other insect additives. If the label says "may contain traces of milk" or something similar, that's okay by me. :)
  • Cosmetics tested on animals (and those that contain animal products, for example, milk or lanolin).
  • Baby style cute items (Kawaii is fine), touristy postcards (unless they show something I especially like)
  • Most Disney (Princesses are okay ^_^)
  • Cards or items for holidays we don't celebrate here (for example, July 4th).
  • Alcohol related things since my alcohol use is minimal. I like to drink low-alcohol (0.5%) beer and cider, though. :)
  • I can't use tampons because I have an IUD.
  • Purple is my least favorite color.
  • I don't drink coffee but my husband does

Random things I like

Bridges, subway/road maps, cats, mandalas, fractals, yoga, color white, orange, red, green, robots, computers, technology, sci-fi themes, propaganda, conspiracy theories, real time strategy games, simulation games, elephants, hummingbirds, zombies, cooking, baking, computers, board games, politically incorrect.

I love different languages and cultures. I'm especially interested in Scotland, Singapore, China and Germany. My husband is interested in anything related to Russia and Eastern Europe.


I always try my best to make swaps nice and fit the profile of the receiver (excluding some specific swaps) but sometimes I make mistakes and don't read the description carefully enough or don't understand it correctly. (I can be quite scatterbrained sometimes!) If something I send doesn't fill the requirements of the swap, pm me and I'll send you something as extra. Also contact me if you don't receive anything.

I have a long haired cat who likes to sleep on my desk, so I can't avoid having a few cat hairs in the swaps I send. I'm sorry about that. :/

I sometimes have to send some of my swaps in Economy because the postage is very high for heavy items. Economy letter can take a bit over than a month to arrive to USA. I hope you understand.

Favorite Television

I love to watch TV series! I watch many cartoon and comedy series like Family Guy, South Park and American Dad. I've watched too many British and Finnish comedy series to mention them. :)

My favourite drama series are Breaking Bad, The Wire, Halt and Catch Fire, House MD, Stranger Things and Silicon Valley (I'm not sure whether to count it as a comedy or drama series :P).

I mostly like drama and scifi movies.


I like many kinds of teas: green, black, mate, herbal... I really like these brands: Yogi, Pukka, Shoti Maa, Celestial Seasonings, Clipper, Stash.

Tea favorites that I haven't found locally:

  • Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Kids (Sweet Grape)
  • Yogi Tea Soothing Caramel Bedtime
  • Yogi Tea Cinnamon Vanilla Healthy Skin
  • Yogi Tea Green Tea Goji Berry
  • Yogi Tea Green Tea Kombucha
  • Yogi Tea Green Tea Muscle Recovery
  • Yogi Tea Green Tea Triple Echinacea
  • Yogi Tea Honey Lavender Stress Relief
  • Yogi Tea Joint Comfort
  • Yogi Tea Kava Stress Relief
  • Yogi Tea Skin Detox
  • Yogi Tea Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut
  • Yogi Tea Woman's Moon Cycle

I would love to do a private swap if you can send me teas from my wishlist.

Tea flavors I don't really like: peach, berries (except strawberry or cherry), apple, Christmas spices, pear, Yellow Label, English Breakfast, rooibos.

Favorite Books

I love to read old scifi from the 50's and 60's. Newer scifi and other novels occasionally too. Recently I've read many books from Robert Heinlein. I also love to read nonfiction about anything that interests me. :) I have a self-help addiction!

You're right. Tatort is a TV series. But there's one cinema in Braunschweig that shows the TV transmission (the first broadcast) on the cinema screen. And it's better to watch it with other people on the cinema screen than alone at home on the small TV screen.
