About Me

TO ANYONE INTERESTED:

Although I've had a lot of fun creating things and exchanging them, I have decided to stop swapping for a while. I've made this decision, sadly, because of the TERRIBLE postal service Argentina has. Many of the things I have sent have mysteriously "gotten lost" and the same happened to most of the stuff sent to me. Ask in the forum here and you will see that what I'm saying is not a lie: I'm not the first one who has had problems with this. I will, however, send what I already promised I would send out, but, I'm really sorry to say, this is it for me. I'm sick and tired of putting a lot of effort into everything I make and spending A LOT of money on postage for things to get stolen. I really hope I can get back to swapping some day ://

Hi! Thank you for visiting my profile :) My name is Flor and im from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm 23 years old and I was introduced to this website by a friend ((this is really cool!)). I both work and study, and luckily, I enjoy doing both things. I'm majoring in English/Spanish translation and I do database research for a company that makes travel guides.

I've always enjoyed making things myself, and I never knew there was a site like this! I hope to send and receive many things that were made with love :)

I love nature, but sadly there isn't much of it in Buenos Aires :( I really like animals, though they don't always like me, and I love making new friends from all over the world.

One thing that I hate ((well, not really hate, but that really REALLY scares me)) is clowns... I haven't been able to go to a circus show ever since I was a kid and I watched "It", so please, PLEASE, no clowns, hahaha.

Well, that's pretty much all I can think of right now, so if there's anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to ask!

Favorite Music

I always listen to a little bit of everything, depending on my mood and on what I'm doing, but basically a mix of the following is always on my Ipod:

*Sufjan Stevens *Cat Power *Aimee mann *Radiohead *Rosie and Me *Emiliana Torrini *Coldplay *Sigur Ros *Florence and the Machine *Ingrid Michaelson *Travis *Lady GaGa *The Killers

And the list could just go on and on.

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my passions! I always carry a book with me. If I were to make a top five list, I think it'd go something like this:

  1. "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen.
  2. "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte.
  3. "Death on the Nile" by Agatha Christie.
  4. "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.
  5. "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini.

Of course I could list more, but for the sake of space, I'll just stick to five.

Favorite Movies

*Big Fish *Sleepless in Seatle *Pretty Woman *The Fall *Constantine *Amelie *500 Days of Summer *The Invention of Lying *Death at a Funeral *The Devil Wears Prada *Water

Favorite Television

Hhmmm let me see...

*The Big Bang Theory *Friends *The Office *Arrested Development *How I Met Your Mother *Burnt Notice *The New Adventures of Old Christine *The Simpsons *Family Guy

Favorite Crafts

Whatever you choose to make for me, I'll love :) What counts is the intention and the work put into something, not the thing itself :))

Comment: I'm sorry to hear about the bad postal service in your area. But the least you could do is read your messages and get in touch with the people who don't receive the stuff you sent out.

I asked about Flor's outstanding swaps and it looks like @Florcis is having her swaps re-routed and angeled due to her mail frustrations.

Did you ever get the necklace i sent to you? I haven't heard any response from you yet, and i spent so much time on it! I really hope it wasn't one of the things you were talking about that was stolen or lost in the mail! :(

MorgenSter on Nov 29, 2010:

I'm really sad things got the way they did! But enough with sadness right ? My mom is almost here with your gifts !!! I'm super curious I'm going to pick her up! I'm so curious to see pictures of there . Buenos Aires must be amazing! Did you have any luck trying to find a flat?

Hi, You know, I just realized why you seem so familiar...I totally met you on InterPals! Wow, what a small world. :P

Sapphyre on Oct 26, 2010:

Hi! I'm one of your partners for the profile comment swap. We've had several swaps together now, so it's good to get to know you a little better! I like a lot of the shows and movies that you do. I especially love the very gracious bit at the end of your profile, about being happy if the intention was there. That is the perfect way to feel and I wish everyone here felt like that!!!

Hey, thanks for looking through my articles. If you want I could refer you to sing up and join. The amount of money you make depends on how much time you spend on it. The friend that referred me writes online full time and makes an all right income from it, I do a lot of stuff with my time so my income is slower.

I had a writing teacher in school that made us write at least one full notebook page everyday. She gave us tricks to help get the words flowing. Some days it was hard to reach that goal, other days I far surpassed it. Either way it was full and really helpful.
