About Me

IMPORTANT: Hi! I am back from Holidays, so I'm slowly rating everyone. If you haven't received a rating or a swap from me, please let me know and I'll remedy that straight away!.

I'm currently a University and TAFE Student studying a double degree at ACU as well as a course in library and information services.

I'm an avid reader and writer (and yet I still have no idea what to say).

I have two gorgeous doggies, they're both very excitable and love going for walks!

When it comes to hobbies, I love to give different things a go, so at the moment I'm very much an amateur cook and baker; I love walking, hiking, cycling and tons of other things, too.

I've learnt a few languages here and there; French (being the one I'm most familiar with), a little Dutch and German. I'm still learning, but if you have any unique sayings in your native tongue (in any other langues than just those mentioned above), I'd love to know!

I'd love to have some more penpals from around the world! So, if you think we'd get along or have some things in common, send me a message!

Favorite Books

My being a bookworm and all means I might have a few favourite books (although it's hard to choose...and they tend to change every couple of months).

  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
  • The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  • Chemistry by Weike Wang

Favorite Television

I love a lot of TV shows! Though I haven't seen a few for a while - I've been more focused on studies. Here are some of my faves:

  • Doctor Who
  • Outlander
  • Orphan Black
  • Jane The Virgin
  • Stranger Things
  • Anne with an 'E'
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  • Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

(and a notable mention would have to be "Round The Twist" which is basically an aussie tv show I watched as a kid and it is ICONIC)

Favorite Music

There are so many types of music I love; here are some of my favourite bands/musicians:

  • Lorde
  • Hozier
  • Meg Mac
  • Paramore
  • The Killers
  • St. Vincent
  • Amy Shark
  • Glass Animals
  • Janelle Monáe
  • The Cranberries
  • Panic! At The Disco
  • Florence + The Machine

(and there are so many others that I just adore, but I'll keep the list this long.)

Note

A lot of the time post to and from Australia does tend to take a while, so allow over a month for a swap of mine to get to you.

However, if you don't receive a swap within that timeframe, message me and I'll resend!

ESG: Friendly Profile Comment - Hi there Jess! I love to travel, and though most of travel has been within the US, I did have the privilege of traveling to Australia in 2013, and it remains at the top of my list as favorite places! I wasn't that far from you -- we flew in to Sydney, stayed in Wollongong and Penrith, and attended a conference at Merroo Christian Center in Korrogong :) Would love, love, love to come back some day!

I wish you all the best in your studies and all things good in the days ahead!

ESG: Quick friendly profile comment Hello! I have many cyber friends in Australia. They are all so awesome, so I guess you are awesome too!

I also like Dr. Who a lot, although honestly I have not watch the most recent episodes. I think my favorite is # 10!
