Let me know if you don't get your swap. My mail carrier doesn't come every day, and I don't live in a great part of town, and I've had mail/packages stolen. I will resend!

Prefer black tea, but drink coffee as well. Prefer unflavored teas and coffee. Love rose and hibiscus teas, blended herbals but not Chai blends, love love love Chai but they give me migraines, same for ginger teas, like them but they don't agree with me
Like a good latte, if it's really good, plain, if it's Starbucks, it has to be vanilla to cover the burned taste
I am not religious and while I respect your religious beliefs, I have no patience for evangelism. Please refrain.
No Disney please, I have philosophical issues with their business practices. I don't even watch star wars shows now etc because of disney.
I'm sensitive to scented stuff, sometimes it's fine, sometimes it gives me a migraine.
Love stickers, have appreciation for the goth aesthetic but it's not for me, same for Sanrio

Books. I read a lot. Switched to ebooks in 2000 after a move and hurt my back moving book boxes.
Mostly read scifi, fantasy, and mystery, but I really will read just about anything including the back of the shampoo bottle
Favorite book, The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley (my favorite since I was 12 years old) I read it once a year at least
Another book I read once a year is Dune, by Frank Herbert. I enjoy the themes, and even more so now, what the dangers of a charismatic leader can present, even with good intentions.
I'll read just about anything, although some horror I can't handle. I'm able to immerse myself into a book and it can get too real
Not a big fan of rape, either. Had to stop reading GoT and Outlander series because of this.
I've been banned from non-religious swaps because of this?
I figured I'd make it easier to see if this is important to you. I'm not pagan, not a witch, nor a practitioner of Shinto (for example) (although Yu'pik traditions share some similarities with Shinto), just not religious.
Note that I respect your beliefs, we all have different outlooks and backgrounds, but some here seem to lack tolerance.
I may have a problem. I love washi. All kinds of washi.
I have lots of washi, but I'm always excited when I see a new sample or roll or bit.
My best girl
