My Instagram (may include spoilers)
Hey all, I'm from Italy, approaching my 40s, HR generalist during the day and paper crafter / letter writer at night. I have been writing letters since the 1990s, I started during high school and love making connections this way. I've finally decided to join after stumbling upon this website a few times in a row.
My actual name is Mariagiovanna, I usually go by Giovanna. I'm a childfree intersectional feminist who's very interested in social issues. On a spiritual point of view I'm somewhere between NeoPaganism, Core Shamanism and Pastafarianism. Not a girly girl, you can hardly see me in make up and high heels, but that doesn't mean I don't like pink or kawaii stuff. I love vintage aesthetics but appreciate many others - I mean, we don't have to choose, right?
I speak Italian, English and a little Spanish and French. But I like to learn words and basic sentences in other languages, so feel free to share.
My hobbies are writing, reading, watching tv series, cooking, geocaching, escape rooms and similar activities. I like dogs and ferrets (I have 2 of them!), but actually almost any kind of pet :-) Also, I'm fascinated by bees and jumping spiders.
[February 26th: a swap that I'd sent on December 9th has just arrived. The postal service really is slow but apparently it's starting to catch up and I'm so glad that not everything got lost!]
Some TV shows I've been enjoying lately:
If you want to know some of my interests or will send themed stuff, these are some ideas. Of course don't feel limited.
- Animal behaviour and evolution
- Dark stories
- Etymology, linguistics and grammar
- Food from all over the world
- Foreign cultures and habits
- Gender studies
- Legends and lore tales
- Religious traditions, myths etc (feel free to write about that, no need to send devotional objects and please don't try to convert me :-) )
- Social and gender studies
- Speculative fiction
- Steampunk, dieselpunk, cyberpunk
- Victorian age
Vintage / victorian (inspired) photos
Anything with ferrets!
Please don't send me things that are racist, sexist, homo-bi-transphobic, ableist, ageist etc, or anything violent. I don't have fun unless everybody does - and yes, I've been called a party pooper before because of this. Depending on the swap's topic, it's ok to send me fiction or news with such themes - I mean, I do know they exist in the world and don't want to turn my eyes away.
