About Me

NOTE: Due to some glitch or something my entire profile was erased. I'm rewriting everything from what I can recollect but obviously I don't remember all the Forum Tags I had made a list of since 2019 (both outgoing and incoming) so I'm sorry about that. But if any of my current partners have a screenshot of my profile, it would be really helpful to fill in the gaps on my profile.

please throw in any wine corks/cork sheet or square in your mail to me if you have them lying around

So I've always been in love with the idea of snailmail. I've sent plenty of them while I was at boarding school and I guess it's something that just stuck with me. Sometime back as I was contemplating about getting back into letter writing I came across a YouTube video which directed me here. SO HERE I AM!!!

I'm a Tibetan, living in India. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in Psychology and I'm not sure what trouble I've signed myself up for.

I love learning about different cultures and ethnicities, hence have found a special affinity for languages as well. I'm trying to learn how to speak in Korean and read/write in Tibetan. I have always been someone who likes planning and preparing for simple things and they may not always be visible but they exist. So Jan 2019 I began a bullet journal. I'm taking it slow and sticking to rapid logging. Now in 2021 I have a very basic planner log and separate journal for long form writing.

You can jump to the ABC section to know what to write or send me.

I am also open to personal swaps (containing what I'm looking for-mentioned below). Drop me a message if you are interested.

I am looking for

  • Cheap fountain pen for practice (calligraphy/italic font nib)
  • (pre-loved/new) rubber stamps & clear stamps ( vintage themed, botanical themed, retro and grunge)
  • Anything vintage & botanical themed(book pages, stickers, diagrams, ephemera, maps, music sheets, illustrations etc)
  • Rubber pieces from a sheet (for stamp carving) any size will do
  • Die cuts [botanical (like flower with stems, branches) and birds)

NOTE:

  • I'm keeping a track of outgoing mail which is pretty slow to some countries but rather quick to others. Mostly >2 months: USA, Belgium, Australia,

Favorite Books

Comment: Thank you for all the likes and nice comments on my photos! The Norwegian Fjord horse that you commented on was magnificent and so gentle. Had to laugh with your comment about the seed pods on the lupine plant looking like tarantula legs! They totally do now that I look at that photo!
