SHIPPING INFO

Please don't send your letters as registered mail and/or with tracking code! All of those letters will go to post office instead of my home, and my nearest post office is super far away and I never visit there. Those letters also get lost and/or destroyed more easily, so even if I would go to the post office, they would just tell me the letter has got lost and they don't have it.

I send all my swaps on time. I usually wrap all my letters and packages to plastic, because Finnish post is slow and careless and destroys a lot of packages or even lose them completely.

So please wait patiently, it can take even 4-6 weeks until you get my package. Also, if you collect stamps, please message me before I send a package to you so I can try not to put plastic/tape on stamps.

ABOUT ME

Alt text

I’m Lilja, 26 years old girl from Finland. Currently I'm living with my boyfriend and our two rescue dogs (3 years old girl and boy) in Vantaa, near Helsinki, which is the capital of Finland. My name is Lily in English, so you can call me Lilja or Lily, which do you prefer more.

I’m very girly girl when it comes to my style and look. I love wearing dresses, skirts and shorts with tights. I also love ”cat eyes” make up and it fits well with my glasses. I also love everything kawaii and cute stuff when it comes to stationery and other penpal/postcrossing/swapping stuff.

If I had to describe myself, I would say I’m shy and quiet first, but when you get to know me, I can be the one who is always talking. I’m very good listener and very trustful and loyal friend. My friends often come to me with their problems and I’m always there for them, giving advices and solving their problems. I also love animals very much and would like to get more pets in the future.

I have complited military service, I was in army July 2014 to March 2015. In Finland military service is mandatory to men and optional to women. Men can also choose non-military service, which means working for a year without getting paid. I applied to special job, multimedia conscript. That was like journalist, photographer, graphic designer and webmaster all together. Then I was also a social media agent, which gives tips, answer to questions and helps new conscripts before and during their service. Of course I also had normal military training, like shooting, marching, living in the woods and sleeping in tents. It was the best time of my life!

I'm studying religion studies in university. When I graduate, I will be Master of Arts. I have also written a book, which was published in August 2015. The book is about Finnish Youtubers and I was only hired to write it, so it was not my own idea. I’m still dreaming about writing and publishing my own poem and short story collections some day. As you may already guess, my dream job is an author and journalist.

Wow that is really interesting!! I haven't mastered the cat eye look yet. Philosophy! Interesting! My flatmate last year majored in that, he LOVED it! Religious studies is cool too. I learnt a bit about the Japanese religions a few years ago in a paper I did. It was really interesting!

Hi there, this is a comment for the EASY: Profile Comment #5 swap. I also have the same question as @sakura 15, does everyone have to complete military service in Finland?

I got my university undergraduate degree in Creative Writing. One of my favorite exercises was to go to a cafe and write the dialog someone nearby is saying, word for word, including any filler words like, um, uh, like, etc. It helps you really get an ear for dialog and sometimes helps inspire a new idea! Have an awesome day!
