About Me

Hello! My name is Sam, and I am a 22-year-old from Pennsylvania, USA. I am nonbinary and use they/them pronouns.

My favorite color is orange! Green, yellow, and blue are tied for second :) I love plants and gardening- I might just send you some seeds! Stickers are one of my favorite things to send and receive. For ephemera, I like cute, vintage, colorful, and/or natural aesthetics.

I like the look of cottagecore, dark academia, bright colors in minimalism, and pastels.

I am a university student in school to become a librarian. I graduated with an English Literature and Gender and Women's Studies minor in 2020.

I love to send letters and used to penpal weekly in elementary into middle school until my penpal moved and we lost touch. I hope that I can use this space to connect with people and learn more about the world and myself through the process!

I like to think deeply about topics as well as ask and answer questions. Reading books (memoir, fiction, and graphic novels) watching movies (horror, comedy, and animation) and crafting (knitting, crochet, and sewing) are things I use to keep busy when not working at the library in my area.

Some topics I like to talk about and think about are literature and words, nature and gardening, activism and feminism, art and how it affects the world, daily life such as thoughts, feelings, and dreams. But I am also open to talking and learning about things I don't have experience with or have not listed here. Being exactly like me is not a requirement I would look for in a friend nor a penpal.

I practice calligraphy, create blackout poetry, and do collages as a hobby. I would love to share these things with a penpal and there is no obligation to send the same or similar back. I would love to make a penpal small gifts of art or poetry.

But overall, I really want to exchange thoughtful letters over time with someone and become friends. I believe that it is the people in our lives that make the world a beautiful place worth living in.

Favorite Music

I like music with quirky lyrics and an upbeat feel. I listened to Y2K country, pop music, and classic/soft rock growing up. I like dance, folk, and indie music, too.

Right now I am listening to these artists:

Willow Smith COIN Fever Dolls Kyd the Band Lady Gaga Bastille BANNERS Cave Town CashCash Capital Cities Sia St. Lucia Super Fruit Vance Joy The Wombats

...and more!

I'd love to learn new artists and songs that are important to you!

Favorite Books

Books are so important to me- I have based my career around reading and sharing them!

Some of my favorites: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer Matilda by Ronald Dahl Sissy by Jacob Tobia The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green The Witches are Coming and Shrill by Lindy West

Favorite Television

I watch TV with my family mostly. But have watched more since getting Netflix and Hulu.

I love cartoons like: The Amazing World of Gumball Spongebob Over the Garden Wall Steven Universe Pinky Malinky Disenchanted

Some live-action TV shows I have watched and enjoyed are: A Series of Unfortunate Events Will and Grace Anne with an E Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt The Repair Shop Insatiable The Haunting of Hill House Great British Baking Show The Good Place The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Nailed it! Queer Eye Pose Orange is the New Black Atypical

Favorite Crafts

I often: Knit Collage Crochet Garden Sew Doodle Caligraphy/handlettering

I also like but don't do as often: cross stitch modeling with clay paint / draw

Favorite Movies

I often watch scary movies and prefer psychological or paranormal horror. I dislike gore very much. On the flip side, I like a good slice of life comedy or drama.

Some movies I have enjoyed are: Coraline To All The Boys I've Loved Before Sinister The Half of It The Theory of Everything Flushed Away I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House Cargo Room A Secret Love Wild Wild Country Insidious

Food

My food allergies include mango and kiwi, and berry-flavored foods so please don't send these!

My favorite teas include black teas and green teas. I don't really like dessert flavored teas, but I would be willing to try anything green, herbal, etc. that isn't in my favorites. I'd love to try something new!

In Case of Emergency...

If my swap to you doesn't arrive, comes damaged, or is wrong in any way - please contact me so that I can make it right! I always send on time, and I always want to make sure that I uphold my end of the swap. Things happen beyond out control when our mail is put into the hands of the postal services, but I am willing to work out a solution to any unfortunate mishap! :) Thank you!
