Comment: Thank you so-so much for the swap, I received it! :) I'm glad to know that the postal service is returning back to South Korea... actually I really hope the borders will be open by April, I have a ticket booked there!! *.*
Comment: Well, as something finally arrived I am rating you a 5. I did get two teas and some nice stickers and a note. Thank you for sending something to me. Do not forget to also send something to the coordinator of this swap. She is due too for a angelling for me.
Response: I'm glad that you were able to get something! The coordinator has been great and I'm glad she could angel for me when I was unable to mail anything because of Korea's posting situation. I have something ready to send to her as soon as it is possible to mail it from Korea, ^^ I hope you have a good day!
Comment: You know, I still haven't gotten around to reading Uglies, and it's been on my list forever. I think this is the kick in the pants I needed! I do love a good dystopia, maybe because it wasn't a big trend in YA when I was a teen (The Giver is all I remember being around!).
Comment: Hi Hello Meredith! Thank you for your incredible email! I'm so happy to know you became close with your High School Librarians too (I was much the same)! Gah, just everything sounds so lovely, like a rave at the library, how freaking incredible!! I hope you have an awesome week! Stay safe xx
Response: Haha, thanks! I hope you have a great day!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun happy mail! I loved everything you included - especially the aliens post card <3 I'm excited to try the tea as I don't think I drank any tea when I visited Seoul. Thank you again :)
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad that it finally got there! Enjoy it! ^^
Comment: I apologise for not rating immediately, the days just go by so quickly (and yet it feels like such a long year, what is time?). Thank you so much for answering the prompt, I really liked your answer! I hope you have an awesome day, Meredith!
Response: Haha, yeah this year has been crazy. I'm glad you liked it! Have a great day too!
Comment: greetings, Meredith ~
i am sorry about the mail delays - must be frustrating, but thankful email still works. i love your bountiful vacation meal - so much work went into that ... what a treat! i like videos from Adrienne Hill - it put Busan on the map for me > thrilled that you enjoy it in S.Korea, too!
Response: Thanks for your kind words. It has been stressful trying to mail things these days. Oh, cool, I'll have to check her out.
Comment: Hey! I finally recieved your PC a few days ago! Its adorable, thank you! I'm so jealous that you live in Korea! I'd love to visit one day. COVID19 has been spreading again over in the UK, and my area might be going into a local lockdwon soon. Ive just moved into univeristy so im really worried!
Im also quite scared of catching it as I am unable to wear a mask due to my asthma !
I hope you're staying safe! Have a lovely day :) x
Response: Yay! You got it! I hope you are able to visit someday- it's a great country to travel around in. Oh, no, I pray that you stay safe. There has been an increase in cases in Korea, but Busan doesn't have so many and the government has handled it well.
Comment: What a lovely swap! I love the bookmark you made. It's perfect for me! I am excited to try the teas, too. I may brew the peach paradise tonight before bed while I break in my awesome new bookmark ;) Thank you so much for all of the fun goodies!
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked it! It was my first time trying to make something like that with Korean calligraphy- so I'm glad it worked out!
Comment: Thank you for the tea and postcard! I adore them both. Also envy you for the easy access to such cute and lovely designs. *wistful sigh*
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you like it! Yes- Korea definitely has some cute stuff- and a lot of stationary stores! But right now I can't really mail things out to most countries. :( Oh, I just got your thank you post card! I love all the stamps and stickers on the back! Thank you for sending something extra back!
Comment: Liked reading your answers. Welcome to swap bot. Yes the smell of books, I can relate to that one. I think that an outdoor reading area is a great idea. Maybe you could suggest that to your local library. Happy reading ,
Response: Thank you! Yes, that would be nice, I have a language barrier where I live though. I'm just lucky that there is 1 English library in my whole city.
Comment: Yay! The postcard arrived! Huzzah. I know we were wondering how long it was going to take. Thank you for your patience and open communication. It's a very cool image of Gamcheon Culture Village. =)
Response: Yay! It got there! Yeah, sending mail because of covid by boat is so slow. You're welcome- I'm glad you like it.
Comment: WOw! I just received your letter, today is 8-8-20, you sent it off 5-14-20!!! I sure do appreciate the teas! they have to be worth it!SO glad it it made it!! The stickers are cool and unique!!Thanks again!!!
Response: Wow! Yeah- unfortunately with covid most of my mail is taking like at least 3 months to reach people, because the only option is to send it by boat. But I'm glad you finally got it! Enjoy the tea!
Comment: meredith, i finally received you mail swap from april! geez, it took 3 months. thank you for sending osulloc tea! i really want to try that tea brand since a long time ago and im so happy i finally got the chance :D Also thank you for stating the expiry dates, i really appreciate it <3
Response: Wow- it took so long sending it by boat! I hope mailing will go back to a more normal situation soon. Yay! I hope you like it! Osulloc is my absolute favorite Korean brand!
Comment: Thanks for your letter and the goodies. and thanks for the Korean.
We are slowly starting up here too. Maine didn't fair too badly. We are a bunch of casual social-isolationists in the best of times.
Response: 천만에요! (You're Welcome!) That's good that things aren't too bad there.
Comment: I received the letter through email a little while ago due to overseas postal problems due to the pandemic. She sent me a message a couple weeks ago saying she sent the letter through a few weeks ago, I can't wait to try the teas!
Response: I hope the teas get to you safely, quickly, and you enjoy them! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Yay! Your cat postcard arrived today! I wish these postcards could talk and tell us about the adventures in their travels. The kitty on the postcard reminds me of my grand kitty. Thank you for brightening my day. :) Take care!
Response: You're welcome! Yes, that would be so cool! I'm glad that you like it!
Comment: Thank you so much. That bookmark is so incredibly beautiful. Thank you! You recommendation sounds right up my alley. I’ll have to check it out. Thank you for the goodies too. Everything is beautiful. I love your style
