About Parakeetmails

swapbot is my anxiety reliever, so please don't take this amazing experience away from me. I rate generously and I give people second chances, all I ask for in return is for you to do the same. I NEVER flake. Please rate generously. thank you♡

P.s if you haven't received my swap yet, please message me so I can resend. I'm always willing to resend (that's within reasoning)

PLEASE READ:

3/17/2020

I HAVE A NEW TEMPORARY ADDRESS. I will be away vacationing & any mail that I've sent out, or any mail that gets returned to me, I wont be able to check because I'll be somewhere else for a few months. On the bright side, I can still receive mail and send out mail! But due to coronavirus concerns, I'm going to lay back on joining many swaps because currently, Vancouver & parts of Oregon are issuing mail restrictions, making it impossible for big parcels to be received. Its horrible, yes, I know!!

ALSO, I'm looking for PRIVATE profile based swaps, journal swaps, zines, drawing prompts, & photo swaps!!!! Please shoot me a message if you're interested!

A boring description about me, Chana, aka Parakeetmails

hey! i'm Chana. I currently reside in WA state, this dreary, yet peculiar place I currently call home. I'm 20, a college student -- well, not anymore, ah hell, does any 20-something-year-old ever know what they want to do with their life? Most likely not, unless you've got the brains and super determined!

I've been penpalling & swapping since 2017, so I mean, theres that! I currently hold 300+ outgoing's and 300+ incoming's (check my instagram for reference), I love to swap journals, ATC's, photography, zines, stickers & art. I no longer penpal because I don't have the time to sit at my table and write for 2 hours, so I switched over to something much easier, creative and fun, that being Swap-bot back in 2019. I love love love receiving mail! If you could tell by my username, i'm an absolute bird maniac. I love birds, more particularly parrots. I own 3 budgie's, Eli, Gids, & Tikki! but in my overall life i've owned 10 birds! So receiving bird related things make me extra happy.

I have an anxiety disorder, and i'm also a recovering SUI & bulimia - anorexia survivor. So please have patience with me. Like seriously. Angry, mad, and mean people give me severe anxiety. Thanks in advance ;_;

Pantone's ♡

Soap (sweet/fruity/food scents) ♡

Cute teabags / sweet tea

Address labels ♡

Neon art & kawaii art

Really fancy ATC's (double the points if its bird related!!) ☆

And last but not least, my favorite colour is creamsicle orange, and pastel pink. I love kawaii themed things too! ☆

WHAT IVE BEEN TRYING TO COLLECT LATELY...

Really interested in receiving & collecting magazine collages, flipbooks, zines, journals, drawing prompts, & foreign foods

Magazine cutouts...

Zines...polaroid/printed photos (that you took)...

I severely LOVE food related anything...cutouts...stickers...memo's...

Hobbies

I love to journal. I have a big bulky journal filled with everything between pictures, stickers, ATC's, to wax seals, cut-out's and art. I cant seem to ever get old of artwork, either.

I'm also a mental health advocate, I know how it feels to feel hopeless so I am always a open hand for those in need.

FOOD

I am particularly a picky eater, but I will eat most things. My favorite is snacks. I get severe munchies at night so I love love love savoury snacks. Sour cream & onion, cheddar, bbq...you get it :) Rye is a favorite treat of mine. I love chips, unique chocolate bars (cool wrappers or unique flavors).

My second favorite food is SEAFOOD. Yessss...I'm talking like sushi, sashimi, calamari, takoyaki, crab rangoons, octopus...yummy :)

Even though I cant really have wheat, I LOVE carrot cake. I am a die hard fan for cheesecakes, pudding, mousse, yogurt, strawberry shortcakes, banana or chocolate creampies...lemon bars...oh gosh!!! So good.

I'm preferably organic, so if you do send something sweet but its moderately healthy I will definitely eat it! I love unique flavors. I can usually find the most unique ones at Pinoy Asian markets. I love Takoyaki too. Corn nuts, popcorn, ramen, foreign sweets/desserts are a big yes.

ALLERGIES:

I really can't eat wheat. I just had some wheaty snacks & I had severe reactions to it :/ In small portions I may be able to handle it, but overall it's a 50/50 chance if my body reacts badly to it. Rye bread doesn't affect me at all though!

I DONT like sugary things. That goes for candy, sour candy, suckers, candy bars (cheap brands like twix, snickers...etc.) Yes, this even includes caramel, marshmallows & gummy bears. I stay away from sugar so please no overly sugary sweets :)

Please dont send me bacon flavored things (or anything bacon). I dont do shrimp either. Thank youuuu!♡

Pets I own

I have 3 adorable little budgies. Gids, my oldest male, is a clumsy pretty boy who loves to sit by the window and watch cars go by. Eli, my second oldest male, is a fancy schmancy boy, and LOVES to sing. He's my singer boy. Tikki, my youngest female, is super smart and likes to make new birdy friends. She loves to fly and also loves to scream. I also have a dog, shes a border collie named Dèja. Shes 5 years old!

Outside of crafting and journaling, I personally love video games, digital art, and cooking. I'm a total foodie and trying out new food! So far the newest food I've gotten to eat is Calamari!!

my instagram is @ post2ptsd if you need to get in contact with me. You can also check out some of my outgoings on there!

Comment: Fun to read your responses Chana! I am the complete opposite of you when it comes to seasons - you said that you like to be out when it's hot and humid - that's the time when I love to be indoors with AC - give me a crisp fall day with cool weather and some cool breezes. And, interesting - you said you used to know Hebrew; I speak it fluently. What a coincidence!
Response: Thank you so much! LOL alot of people find it odd that I love the hot & humid weather so much. And wow! Out of all the languages out there, we both have something in common with one. Thanks for the rating and hope you're having a good week ♡

Comment: Chana, I loved your answers and you sound like such a sweet gal. It's not real often at all that I will give a heart for an e-mail swap but you deserve this one. Thanks for going into details and for having such a great personality (I can tell that by your writing!) (HUGS)
Response: Awe thank you so much! I had fun writing your answers, and happy to hear you enjoyed them just as much as I typed them, lol 😁
