I'm a simple girl, with simple mind. I consider myself as a happy and optimistic person, I also love to share my happy thoughts with others, and I tend to keep the negative feelings to myself. I'm a shy person, I dont usually start a conversation with others. I always carry a smile on my face. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve myself, physically or mentally. It's just like sharks, you'll sink when you stop swimming.
I used to be a mad scientist who worked VERY long hours in lab studying tiny bacteria. I was working on bacterial genetics, not really cutting-edge science haha. I enjoyed my work alot, but later I realised that I need a time-off from this busy life, and learn to cherish my family and the lives around me. So now, I'm just doing some freelance teaching, writing up my thesis, and thinking who I want to be and what I want to do from now on.
I am a resposible swapper and I try to send out my mail before the deadline. I will click the "sent" button once the package is out of my hand (i.e. in the post box or in post office) but I cannot control the date they collet the mail and send it to the main post outlet in another area, so dont be surprise if the post mark is one or two days late.
If I cant make it for the deadline, I ALWAYS inform my partners first becoz I dont want to give them a bad impression. Likewise, if you r late in sending your mail, or you havent receive my mail, or you dont like what I sent, pls communicate with me before you rate. I've seen many scary comments in other swappers' profiles, and that's the last thing I want to see in mine. I think SB is a great place to make friends and have fun, let's not turn it into a living hell ;-)
