Hey all, I'm from Italy, approaching my 40s, HR generalist during the day and paper crafter / letter writer at night. My actual name is Mariagiovanna, I usually go by Giovanna. I have been writing letters since the 1990s. I am a huge lover of vintage/vintage inspired aesthetics but appreciate many others - I mean, we don't have to choose, right? I'm a childfree intersectional feminist who's very interested in social issues. On a spiritual point of view I'm somewhere between NeoPaganism, Core Shamanism and Pastafarianism.
I speak Italian, English and a little Spanish and French, feel free to write me in any of these languages. But I like to learn words and basic sentences in other languages, so feel free to share.
My hobbies are writing, reading, watching tv series, cooking, geocaching, escape rooms and similar activities. I like dogs and ferrets (I've had ferrets for 10+ years). Also, I'm fascinated by bees and jumping spiders.
Some TV shows I've been enjoying lately:
If you want to know some of my interests or will send themed stuff, these are some ideas. Of course don't feel limited.
- Animal behaviour and evolution
- Dark stories and spooky stuff
- Etymology, linguistics and grammar
- Food from all over the world
- Foreign cultures and habits
- Gender studies
- Legends and lore tales
- Paper crafting
- Religious traditions, myths etc (feel free to write about that, no need to send devotional objects and please don't try to convert me :-) )
- Social and gender studies
- Speculative fiction
- Steampunk, dieselpunk, cyberpunk
- Victorian age
Anything with ferrets!
Please don't send me things that are racist, sexist, homo-bi-transphobic, ableist, ageist etc, or anything violent. I don't have fun unless everybody does - and yes, I've been called a party pooper before because of this. Depending on the swap's topic, it's ok to send me fiction or news with such themes - I mean, I do know they exist in the world and don't want to turn my eyes away.
