About Me

***** Notice: I got blind-sided with the flu and spent several days bed bound - in and out of consciousness - recovering from it. Consequentually I'm uberly behind on several swaps which I plan to start catching up on today and hope to have them all finished and sent out before Saturday when the post closes. Please forgive my failure to send on time and have a little patience with me. As for the Poetry Day swap I was hosting I'll figure out how to handle that ASAP and contact those who were involved to get it all sorted and settled. I am very sorry to everyone affected by this and hope to have it all cleared up before the end of this weekend. Feel free to message me if you have specific questions/responses." Thanks for your consideration -- Alyss

Hello,

My name is Alyss and I love receiving and sending mail. Ergo my penchant for swapping. I'm also horrible at writing about me stuff for profiles. So instead I've looked around at other's profiles on here and pilfered things I found nifty to add to mine. *** Please remember imitation is a form of flattery and don't be offended if you find a profile section you pioneered here***

Things I enjoy:

listening to music/ reading/ chocolate/ traveling or daydreaming about traveling or writing out elaborate itineraries for the places I'd like to travel/ watching scary movies/ playing facebook games (in fact I'm quite addicted to them)/ baked goods (another addiction)/ dancing in my head/ writing/ having written/ making new e-friends/ singing (albeit horribly)

A-Z of Things I Like

A

  • Alice In Wonderland
  • A Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Ampersands
  • Art markers

B

  • Blue (especially dark blue/midnight blue)
  • Books and bookmarks

I'm not so fond of...

Pink (the color; i actually love P!nk the musician)

Super girly stuff

Religious stuff (nothing against it religious persons but I'm Buddhist not Christian)

I have asthma and allergies so anything with a cigarette smoke smell tends to make me feel icky.

Licorice

My Current Goals/Aspirations

  • Learn how to put cute little pictures on my swap-bot profile like other have

  • Increase my eco-friendliness in my everyday lifestyle (i.e. use fewer resources, cause less environmental damage)

  • Finish my Master's degree and work a little while before starting on a PhD or decide I've had enough with academia

  • Try ATC making. Although I have to admit I've never been a visual artist and the concept really intimidates me. I've seen so many really amazing ones around the web and would love to get into swapping them eventually

  • Start an Etsy store that focuses on Upcycled items.

  • Marry Leonardo DiCaprio (even if only in a dream)

Comment: I don't give threes for late swaps when people let me know they are going to be late but you didn't -- and poems on a CD, while interesting, are not what the swap called for. Being a visual person who like to keep a file of poems to go back to read, I find the CD disappointing.

Comment: Your email was late. I should rate you a 3, but I don't want to tarnish your rating over an email swap. When you know you are going to be late, please let your partners know. You did mention on your profile that you had the flu, but you didn't provide any dates, so we have no idea when you had the flu or how that would affect our swaps.

Hi AlyssD,

Just checking in about the zombie story swap I sent you and wanted to see if it has arrived yet? Sometimes post from Canada can take a while, but I just want you to know that it IS on it's way if it hasn't already arrived! Cheers and hope you're having a great weekend!
