About Me

I AM LOOKING FOR GERMAN SPEAKING PEN PALS. Anyone? :)

I HAVE SIGNED THE AU PAIR CONTRACT WITH THE FAMILY FROM GERMANY, THUS I WILL NO LONGER HOLD A VALID MAIL ADDRESS STARTING FROM JULY 2014. I HAVE FINALS STARTING IN MAY, SO I GUESS IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF. THANK YOU.

I never flake but can be late for a couple of days or so because of my work and university. I always try to put much effort into things and read people's wishlists/likes. I check my PO Box only twice or thrice a week. Travelling time may vary from 10 days up to a month, so, I beg you, be patient and email me if there are any complications/difficulties or that you are going to be late.

I am open to private swaps and pen pals. I'd love to find a birthday pen pal. Is your b-day on March 11? Message me! Let's be pen pals!
My name is Anna.
I am 19 years of age and come from The Russian Federation. I am single and live on my own 800 kms away from my family.
I am a fourth year student. My major is linguistics. I am going to be a professional in Intercultural Communications whatever that might mean.

Colours&Patterns

Alt Text
I adore the colour navy blue, white, wine-red, gray, yellow. Polka-dot patterns make me happy. Muted colours are the best.

I love working with colours in Photoshop.
I make up lists and then create a JPG cover for them with some art work, fonts and brushes.
I absolutely love using design-seeds.com and colourlovers.com for finding the perfect colour palette for basically anything: clothes,interior design, website design or art works.
I tend to write down the numbers of the colours I love and here are some:
769CAB
E98777
C1D7CF
F4DEC2
F8F407
703E3B
FDF4D5
FFD9CF

What I also find very fascinating about colours is the names that people make up for them on colourlovers.com
These websites have such a weird effect on me, they smooth, ease up, captivate and suggest so many ideas! Oh, the only place that makes me think I am creative enough.

TEA

Alt Text
I absolutely love drinking tea all day long! I don't care if it's caffeine free or not. My ultimate favourites are
*earl grey
*anything with mint
*herbal tea(esp. with thyme)
*milky oolong
*rooibos
*black tea with fruit flavour
*cinnamon
*spicy
*lemon
*Combinations of the above
I am not too picky in terms of tea, though, I don't like green ones that much.

WISHLIST

I'll be happy to receive anything you feel like sending to me. However. I'll leave this wishlist just in case..

*Excessive use of curse words
*Dark themes

They make me itch a lot.

MAIL

Alt Text
Russian Post is not all roses. It may take up to a month to reach people in Americas, Australia and Oceania; two weeks is usually the time for European countries.
I have been in this whole mail thing for over 3 years, and from my own experience, I've learnt, being brutally honest now, people would rather not exchange stuff with Russians,purely(or not.?) due to "The Slowest Post Office" ever, oh. come on, Mail should be worth waiting.
In fact, I dare say, Everything should be worthwhile.
