About Me

I'm a 28 year old that's brand new to swapping. I'm currently going through a divorce and am currently battling depression and anxiety. I know I'll get through it all though -- I'm currently taking time to re-explore the things that I enjoy and that make me happy. I'm trying to stay positive and have found that a happy, positive attitude has worked some magic on how I feel.

As a child, I wanted to be an artist and I still enjoy drawing and want to re-explore jewlery making (i LOVE earrings!). I lived in Europe when I was young and caught the travel bug at an early age. I have a long list of all the places that I want to visit and things that I want to do when I get there. I love postcards and letters telling me about cities and countries that I haven't been to.

I enjoy reading, trying new foods, the contentment from a warm cup of tea, breakfast at all hours of the day, road trips, starry nights and spending time just hanging out with the friends that have become like family.

I have a lynx-point siamese cat that I adopted when she was a kitten. She's super affectionate and a total lap-cat.

I recently learned about introversion and discovered that I am a textbook introvert. That knowledge has changed the way that I see my life and has helped me to accept myself for who I am. :)

Favorite Books

I'm currently rebuilding my bookshelf by repurchasing my favorite books:

  • The Harry Potter series
  • The Poisonwood Bible
  • The Secret Garden
  • My Side of the Mountain
  • True Spirit
  • Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I generally enjoy travel stories, biographies and science-ish fiction. I especially love inspirational stories. I'm planning on reading the Game of Thrones series if I can get my hands on them.

Favorite Movies

I have a LOT of favorite movies but I'll include the ones that I've watched the most:

  • Mamma Mia
  • Trainspotting
  • Sweet Home Alabama
  • Love Actually
  • Empire Records
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
  • Chocolat
  • Harry Potter
  • Newsies
  • Swing Kids

I'm a huge theater nerd and would spend all my money on going to broadway and off-broadway shows if I could.

TV shows: - Doctor Who - Doc Martin - The IT Crowd - Misfits - How I Met Your Mother - Glee - Walking Dead - True Blood - 2 Broke Girls - Modern Family - Ocean Girl - New Girl - Smash - The Nanny - Game of Throne - White Collar

Favorite Music

I like a lot of different types of music but I'm currently into...

  • Mumford & Sons
  • Passenger
  • The Lumineers
  • Lady Gaga
  • Lily Allen
  • Florence & The Machine
  • Fun.
  • Jack Johnson
  • Adele
  • P!nk
  • Ed Sheeran

Likes

I'm going to preface this by saying that I got into swap-bot because I love getting mail and meeting new people. I'm only listing my likes because it's been asked of me, but I'm easy to please and appreciate the effort.

Likes: - blue, green, pink and purple - animals of all kinds - peter pan - fairies - sparrows - lush cosmetics - cute cartoony stickers - coffee/tea/hot cocoa - chocolate of all sorts but especially with nuts - japanese culture - travelling - woodsy-items (pinecones, feathers, etc) - anime - italian culture - bells - wind chimes - candles - anything beach-themed - 80s cartoons - motivational quotes - anything that promotes happiness, positivity or serenity - incense - postcards (travel and artsy, especially) - charms - sunshine - plants and flowers - stars - scarves - dangly earrings and unique necklaces - all things studio ghibli

Dislikes: - stuffed animals (like them but no room for them) - raisins

A note about religion and religious items: I was raised Roman Catholic but am currently exploring the various religions to figure out if it's for me. That being said, i don't mind receiving religious items. In fact, if you included some information about your religion and what you love/dislike about it, I'd love that. :)

Comment: I have tried to contact you and you never read my message. The Coordinator also tried to contact you. You marked this sent quite a long time ago, but, I'm pretty sure you never did because it never showed up. Will happily re-rate if it ever shows up.

Comment: Considering I've contacted you a few different ways and times with no response I'm thinking I'm not getting anything. Sigh. Will very happily rerate if I get anything.

I hope that you are okay. I know how hard depression can be when it gets its teeth into you.

arianneroxa on Feb 16, 2014:

Hi there, just checking in as I was one of your partners for "Interest me in a new book No. 9". I haven't yet received this swap from you, and notice that it's still listed on your dash as unsent, even though the send-by date was over a week ago.

Artistic on Jan 31, 2014:

So glad you had a good birthday! Let me know if you want to private swap on the peretti book.
