Hello all! My name is iliana, I'm 28, and I live in Greece. I'm currently working on my Master research thesis in architectural engineering. I'm also working in our family business where we construct charcoal grills and ovens. We also have a YouTube channel, Grill philosophy, full of grilling and cooking recipes!
Fountain pens (just started exploring!)
Exploring the Japanese culture (i.e. through the language, cinema, literature, music, aesthetics, architecture, etc)
FUN FACT: I have graduated a Music junior high and high School ! But I prefer dancing to the music or song writing as opposed to playing music or singing!
Love receiving things that I can use in my journals and snailmail crafts.
(I often like people depicting in things (compared to nuture or animals), but I don't really like real photography in stationery/postcards.)
stickers and washi tape (both vintage-like and kawaii styles
small cards or ephemera from your country.
pappery things for packaging, i.e. lightweight papper, gift bags, tags etc.
anything Japanese culture/aesthetics related !
Anything One Piece..!! (favorite characters: Luffy !!, Law, Boa Hancock)
Regarding postcards, I almost always prefer non-touristy ones. I also really like people as a theme compared to nature or animals, if you have to choose. But please don't be too picky since I will appreciate any received item.
NO....: jasmine, orange, mint/peppermint, cranberry, licorice... :)
YES!!: green/white teas, herbal tea, hibiscus, apple, raspberry
No food allergies. :D
I like both kawaii and vintage-like aesthetics so please surprise me! :D
I like reading fiction books occasionally and I gravitate towards Japanese literature lately or various classical literature.
-YES!! : Writing style as opposed to plot!! (I rarely judge a book by the plot synopsis as it is almost always misleading for me! The plot is really something I care less about, generally speaking, if I really like the writer.)
Current FAVORITE WRITERS:
Also a huge fan of the Harry Potter book series (and a Ravenclaw). ^.^
--- You can also find my goodreads account linked above!
At the moment, I don't watch movies that much. But I want to resume exploring different directors from all around the world.
FAVORITE DIRECTORS so far are:
FAVORITE DISNEY (and other animated) movies:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
My neighbor Totoro
Hawl's moving castle
and Star Wars...? I don't consider them Disney haha
I appreciate music from various genres and I have been exploring quite a few so far.
Among them are:
Acid Jazz (not regular Jazz, though...!)
Deep/Tech House/Minimal techno
Greek folk music
Japanese traditional music, etc :)
I am currently in a K-pop phase, though, for about a year now.
FUN FACT: I almost never pay attention to the lyrics at first (even in my native language!) and I usually pick songs to listen to that I can dance to (depending on the genre, though).
One Piece !
the Big bang theory
How I met your mother
the Vampire diaries (has sentimental value....)
