Hello there :-)

If you haven't received a swap from me or you are still waiting for a rating, please let me know! I'm doing penpaling for some time and it's not in my intention to confuse, hurt or even betray my penpals! This means: Just contact me and I will correct things, whenever a mistake might happen. I will also re-send the swap at once, if necessary.

I'm also no native english speaker and still improving. (And to be honest: English grammar and I wont be best buddys soon.)

About Me

A little bit about myself...

I'm Maxi, 30 years old and from Saxony (in Germany). So my mothertongue is German and I'm working to improve my English (while on the other hand I'm about to forget everything I've ever learned in French).

I'm single, have one older sister, but no children and I like to be aunt and babysit once in a while. :-) Sadly in my flat are no pets allowed... otherwise I would like to have a cat. (Dogs are cool, too, but cats are far better! XD)

I like to decorate my letters and put some goodies in, but I'm not used to the fat snail mail I can see here in many swaps. It will probably take its time, until I will try this myself... I'm also far more interested in letters, to be honest. The longer the letter, the better. ;.)

Favorite Music

I like Heavy Metal, Pagan, Steampunk und something called Neue Deutsche Härte (and from time to time songs from musicals or Disney). Some favourite singers/bands are:

  • ASP
  • Coppelius
  • Eisbrecher
  • Faun
  • Subway to Sally
  • Saltatio Mortis
  • Oomph!

My song recommendation of the month: "Das letzte Streichholz / The final match" by Oomph!

  • "The count of Monte Christo" (Dumas)
  • "Northanger Abby" (Austen)
  • "Harry Potter 1-7" (Rowling) -> I'm rehearing the audio books right now and it's great! Also I have my own Slytherin-T-shirt. XD
  • Horror short stories, like "The Vampyre" by Polidori
  • the "Sherlock Holmes"-short stories by Doyle
  • "The war of the Flowers" (Williams) ...

And mangas, like: - "Angel Sanctuary" (Yuki) - "Alice in Murderland" (Yuki) - "Pandora Hearts" (Mochizuki) - "The case study of Vanitas" (Mochizuki) - Sailor Moon" (Takeuchi) - "That time I got reincarnated as a slime" (Fuse)

Comment: Ganz vielen Dank für das tolle Tagebuch, Maxi! I bin auch seit meiner Jugend großer Fan von Schreibwaren und vom Tagebuchschreiben/journalling und finde es, genau wie du, toll, eine Auswahl zu haben und jederzeit das aussuchen zu können, welches Inspiration bringt :) Leider, leider kam das Päckchen ganz durchgeweicht bei mir an (heute regnet es hier fürchterlich) und all das hübsche Briefpapier ist ganz durchnässt :( Es ist so schade! Hoffentlich kann ich es noch ein bisschen retten. Hab ganz vielen Dank! :)
Response: Huhu :) Danke für die liebe 5. - Es ist schade, dass alles so durchnässt angekommen ist und ich drücke sehr die Daumen dafür, dass sich vielleicht noch etwas retten lässt!
Comment: Vielen lieben Dank für deinen tollen Brief und den Tee :-) Ich bin gespannt, wie er schmeckt! Das Harry Potter Briefpapier?! So cool! :-) Bis bald ;-)
Response: Huhu ^.^ Viel Spaß beim Genießen und bis bald. Und danke fürs Herz.
Comment: Liebe Maxi! Vielen vielen Dank für diese tolle Post! Ich habe mich sehr gefreut, als ich sie heute aus dem Postfach holte. Dein lieber Brief und all die aufmerksamen Kleinigkeiten haben mich sehr glücklich gemacht! :) ps: meine Lieblingssailorkriegerin ist Sailor Uranus!
Response: Freut mich, wenn es vollauf ins Schwarze getroffen hat! :) Und immer wieder cool, wie Sailor Moon auch nach so vielen Jahren noch Leute verbindet! XD

Response: Hallo Anja, vielen Dank für die lieben Worte und das Herz! :) Es machte mir riesengroßen Spaß den Brief zu schreiben und von dem "Was, wenn..." zu schwärmen. Das machte richtig glücklich! XD
