About Me

Hello there! If you are my swap partner, please double-check that you have spelled my name correctly. I have seen so many different variations and its very disheartening when I receive mail that doesn't even have my actual name spelled correctly. If there are any issues with receiving my mail, please let me know first through a message before you rate me. Mail can get lost!

I have a Hobonichi and a Midori journal that I love creating and writing in with my TWSBI fountain pen, and too many uni-ball one pens. It is all personal and filled with bits and pieces I've gotten in the mail from small businesses, artists, and notes from swaps I have joined. I also like to deco my own polcos and journal spreads in them about my life.

Favorite mail art themes: y2k, clovers, gyaru, clouds, hearts & stars, destination and travel, branded kawaii, konbini snacks, vintage-style, academia, happy mail, books and tea, galaxy space, par avian air mail, postal and mailboxes, rainbows and clouds, strawberry, lavender, cherry blossoms and sakura season, bakery sweets like bread, dango. and turtle melonpan, and delectable drinks like ramune and matcha.

I love seeing all types of different postage stamps used besides just the standard American flag. My favorite postage stamps are of space, Snoopy, and those scratch-n-sniff! I hope they make more of them one day.

Pastel purple is my most favorite color!! Actually I like all pastel colors, like pastel pink/purple/blue/yellow, cornflower blue, mint green, honey yellow, mustard yellow, blush, lavender, periwinkle and Kraft brown colors, but any color or hues will work for me. I also really love darker colors too like black, gray-blue, gray, or dark purple. I love seeing things written in calligraphy style, brush pens, fountain pens, or glittery gel pens.

I tend to reuse/recycle things such as calendars for envelopes, and plastic sleeves to hold paper or stickers in for swaps. I just think it is better for the environment and I am sure there are people out there who appreciate that. 🌱

I am looking for stationery with blue point siamese cats!

Likes

I am currently obsessed with these kinds of paper- plant fiber paper, onion skin paper, vintage bond paper, parchment paper, lokta/mulberry paper, kokle finish paper, Kraft paper, blueprint paper, logarithmic paper, columnar paper, old newspaper, different languages paper, wax paper, engineering paper, ledger paper, grid/graph paper, texture paper, seed paper, cotton paper, washi paper, vellum paper, vintage/old/dated/yellowed/browned receipts and bus tickets.

Anything from Korean artists (cottondanchoo, putsonyeon, Floro Studio, Creamy Village, Pearly Button, Allangmallang, Poetico) or Japanese stationery works for me! My holy grail is the strawberry shortcake x hello kitty stationery set! I can't believe I missed out on it! Earlier Rilakkuma series such as shima shima, the clouds, good night, panda, the gummy, the strawberries, and the bathtub series are my faves. I'm always looking for the bread series too, but honestly I love all the Rilakkuma series.

Tea: My favorites are earl grey, chamomile, oolong, sleepy time tea, lady grey, and English breakfast. I tend to make London Fogs, or Royal Milk tea with boba from Darjeeling tea. I also like trying new tea flavors too, so if there are any you like, do share them with me! But no ginger, turmeric, or nutty flavors please.

Interests

These days when I am not at work, you will find me being a big homebody, listening to throwback songs, reminiscing about my childhood, browsing the internet for cute things, watching videos of people decoing their notebooks or photocards, enjoying my time in nature despite the mosquito bites, reading my books and manhwas, thrifting, traveling around, watching my shows and movies, hanging out with my husband, watching my husband play his video games, visiting my family, attending estate sales, and sometimes going to concerts and music festivals. I also love to travel whether near or far, checking out anything local to that place, trying out different cuisines, and enjoying the different cultures.

Book Genres: romance, thriller, sci-fi, mystery, dark romance, NA, YA, romantasy, and fantasy. I like too many tropes to list. If it sounds interesting to me, I will read it. I like books about adventures, love, ones that deals with Asian cultures, coming of age, LGBTQ+ subjects, spirituality, comedy/humour, taboo subjects, banned books, memoirs, and family. I also really like books that have more than 1 POV in it. A book made up of short stories in them, especially about love is my favorite too. As a high schooler, I used to attend the yearly teen book con in my city. Now as an adult, I have noticed there are many book conventions hosted throughout the states. Maybe I will work up the courage to attend one soon!

Some authors I enjoy are David Levithan, Jescie Hall, Jandy Nelson, Jenny Han, Amy Tan, Colleen Hoover, Sarah J Maas, and Ana Huang. Some of my favorite books are How They Met & Other Stories, The Joy Luck Club, The Fault in Our Stars, The Book Thief, The Sky is Everywhere, Looking for Alaska, We Were Liars, I'll Give You The Sun, A Court of Thorn and Roses, Verity, Hush Hush, Twilight, That Sik Luv, Pachinko. Though I may like fiction books, I also like non-fiction books too. Atlas geographic books that shows you maps of the world, the ones that talk about people's cultures and history, and also their religion as well. I respect people's religions and what they choose to believe in or not believe in. I just find it all very fascinating and interesting.

Television: Anything PBS, NOVA, Nature, Jeopardy, Let's Make A Deal, Cosmos, The Amazing Race, the Big Bang Theory, Korean dramas, Sherlock, Fallout, A Gentleman in Moscow, Abbott Elementary, Forrest Gump, You’ve Got Mail, Notting Hill, Shrek, Love Between Fairy and Devil, certain anime shows, Soul Eater, Durarara, Nana, Attack On Titan, No.6, Free!, Kimi Ni Todoke, Honey and Clover, Super Lovers, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Gangnam Beauty, Because This Is My First Life, Nevertheless, Descendants of the Sun, Flower Boy Ramen Shop, Glass Slippers. I rewatch The Office, Friends, Boys Over Flowers (2009), the Twilight series, High School Musical movies, Fated To Love You (2008), My Lucky Star (2007), Hanazakarino Kimitachihe (2006), Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!, and Kamisama Kiss for nostalgic reasons. My husband loves anything zombies, horror, and post-apocalyptic related shows/movies and games so I may have seen it without really wanting to, lol. As long as it isn't playing while I'm by myself!

Music: Rihanna, J. Cole, Frank Ocean, SZA, Lorde, The NBHD, Beyonce, Usher, Lana Del Rey, H.E.R., Coldplay, Passion Pit, Cascada, Cage The Elephant, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death Grips, Cigarettes After Sex, Foo Fighters, BigBang, 2NE1, Epik High, Super Junior, SHINee, Taemin, Kai, B2ST/Beast, Lee Hyori, SNSD (Girl's Generation), Wonder Girls, NewJeans, Le Sserafim. Kpop, Japanese city pop, R&B, pop, alternative, rock.

I wouldn't consider myself a big foodie, but I do love trying and tasting new food! My favorites are any noodle dishes with broth, fried chicken, pork dishes, duck, ramen, rice bowls, wonton, dim sum, banh bot loc, bun bo hue, bun rieu, pate chaud, canh bun, banh mi, poke, sushi, lox, Korean bbq, hot pot. I am a big fan of teas and milk teas with boba. My go to order usually include matcha lattes, taro smoothie, ube, brown sugar, royal milk tea, or oolong milk tea. Honestly, anything with matcha or comes with boba has my name written all over it!

If anyone is reading my profile and would like to get become pen pals, please don't hesitate to message me and talk to me! I enjoy reading letters and postcards I get, and learning about the writer through the medium of writing. I believe it is cathartic to just write and connect the old-fashioned way.

Dislikes

People's and pet's hair in my mail and on the envelope 0.0 Spelling my name and the address incorrectly I have no use for scrap paper(unless they pertain to my likes I mentioned above), page markers/tabs, sticky notes (only if the design or how they look pertain to my likes), or tattoos. I would prefer not to receive anything holiday theme (unless the swap I join specifically is for that or is a blind swap, but feel free to decorate the envelope however you choose cause I know some people get inspired by the holidays/in a festive mood and I don't want to hinder your creativity! I just would like to not receive anything holiday theme like St.Patties, Thanksgiving, Halloween, or Christmas (very minimal is ok like Christmas stamps) because I feel like I am only limited to use them when those times come around. Easter (if it's pastel), Valentine's/hearts or seasonal autumn/fall things though is totally fine so that's the only exception! So for washi samples and stickers, I would prefer to receive those that pertains to my like, please. No words/quotes/days of the week, polka dots washi tape unless the swap specify for so, and no planner/teacher/reward/kids/sports/functional/emoji stickers either. I do not want to receive poor quality or dollar store washi tapes (you can tell by the feel and quality), or glitter washi tape either. And I really don't like it when the washi samples are not wrapped neatly, which makes it hard to use and unroll. Please make sure that these stickers and washi tape are sticky on the back/not running out of life. I like to decorate my mail with things I receive through swaps, and I have gotten some things that just don’t work right.

Please nothing with Keep Calm sayings, makeup-related themes, your hair or any pet's hair on mail, mustaches, emojis, animal prints, monsters, insects, anime or Pokemon things (I watch some but don't collect), snakes, spiders, beetles, rats, broken anything, scary/horror/gore/haunting/death, nude, religious related stuff (except Buddhism) or drug themed anything.

PLEASE NOTE: If you send me anything that may smell of cigarette smoke, or very heavy/musky smell of something such as mold or cleaning solutions, please air it out first or I might have to throw it away if its too strong for me.

Comment: I love books with darker and taboo themes! Although I haven't gotten around to reading A Court of Thorns and Roses yet, I bought it due to the buzz surrounding it. I'm not entirely sure if I'll ever get to it, to be honest. Fantasy isn't my go-to genre, mainly because of the extensive world-building. I only just discovered the My Fault series, and I recently read Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. It delves into a taboo subject, exploring the complicated relationship between biological siblings amidst trauma. While I haven't read Pachinko, I did watch the show on Apple TV. It's quite emotional, touching upon themes of discrimination and more. I initially started with the TV show because I'm not a huge historical fiction fan, but I might give the book a chance someday. I also read Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas. It didn't quite live up to my expectations. Thank you for the lovely extra stickers. They are adorable! If you're interested in being book or regular pen pals, I'm totally up for it! ❤️
