About Me

~VERY IMPORTANT~

Hey guys I will be moving out of my current address on Dec 21st. So if you are swapping with me please make sure that the mail can reach me by that day! If not, please message me and I will message you my other address.

I will not join any international swap other than the ones I am currently in as of Nov 10th. Electronic swaps are on the exception list as well. I will be rejoining you guys next year. ;-)

I am planning to send my last US only swap on Dec 11th (so sad that I have to miss the Christmas swaps :-(( ), I am supposing that domestic mails are arriving within two weeks. Swap hosts and fellow swappers please contact me if you think that does not work.

Hey I'm Jess from Taiwan and my Chinese name is 芝嘉(Chih-Chia). You're welcomed to write my name in Chinese if you know Chinese. It'll also be alright for you to just write my English name. I study Biomedical Engineering at Hong Kong. However, I am currently at St. Louis, MO for the exchange semester at the Washington University in St. Louis

I enjoy traveling, in 2016 I visited the UK, Ireland, Italy and Morocco during the summer vacation. In 2017, I was in Japan for a study trip and Singapore for my internship. Those were really great times and I would definitely like to go back again!

I have been a Postcrosser for 3 years. Sending and receiving postcards and stamps are my biggest hobbies so far haha:-D

I also enjoy watching Youtube videos. My favorites one to watch are Hikakin from Japan and the SNL sketches from the States.

~Also Important~

One thing I do need to point out (and apologize) is that I usually rate other swappers slightly later. See, when the swap is with multiple users, I like to rate when I have gotten stuff from everyone. So I prefer rating all at once. I do make sure I rate everyone though. All the cards and stuff that I received and not rated are kept together to remind me that I have not rated them yet. I shall manage to rate within two weeks of receiving. If you need me to rate you ASAP, please notify me and I will do that for you.

Happy Swapping ;-)

Favorite Music

Mostly English songs although I live in a Chinese-speaking country. Recently I simply listen to the popular songs on Spotify. I don't really like the hip-hop nowadays though but I do appreciate the older ones.

I also listen to some Korean music, and some Chinese songs as well. The newer one that I enjoy the most is RongHao Li.

Other than that below are some of my favorite artists that came to my mind:

The xx / Jess Glynne / Oasis / Gorillaz / Damon Albarn / Blur / Nirvana / RHCP / Disclosure / Clean Bandit / LANY / Eminem / HONNE / Green Day / Kygo / Ed Sheeran / Radiohead / Linkin Park / Pearl Jam / Temple of The Dog / Three Days Grace / The Used / Limp Bizkit / Coldplay / Justin Bieber (Only the newer songs though, I hate songs like 'Baby' and 'Boyfriend')

Yes, if you know these artists, you will understand that the stuff I like are quite random XD

Postcards I Like...

  • Holiday cards, especially ones that are special in your country!
  • Birthday cards around January!!! Y^w^Y
  • For my Japanese friends, I would love to receive Gotochi cards or Mailbox cards from the place/nearest post office you are staying!
  • For friends in the US, if you happened to have large letter cards (thank you Hyshu for telling me its name!) like the ones in this link from your town/city/state. It would be awesome if you can send them to me :-D
  • Hedgehog/ Cute animals.
  • Posters/people.
  • Nature (my partner loves the sea!)
  • Your city/country/town view.
  • Watercolor/ illustrations.
  • Old postcards/ vintage postcards/ black&white cards
  • If there is any cartoon/fictional character that was made from and well-known in your country, and you happened to have a card for it, do feel free to send them too! I am curious about these characters from around the world.
  • Just learn about Lantern Press postcards and I love them as well!
  • Rainbow/LGBT pride themed postcards

Favorite Movies

I love animated movies! Below are some of my favorites...

  • Big Hero 6 (I have had special memory with it so I am obsessed with Baymax)
  • Wall-E
  • Moana
  • Despicable Me
  • Minions
  • The Boss Baby
  • Wreck It Ralph
  • Secret Life of Pets
  • Sing
  • Zootopia
  • Detective Conan movies!!!

And these are some movies that I like aside from animations...

  • The Last Word
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 1 + 2
  • Her
  • Mommy (Xavier Dolan)
  • Table 19
  • Anomalisa
  • Malefecient

That is all that have came to my mind for now... Please feel free to recommend me some movies like you like, I do like most stuff except scary movies.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of shows... the following are some that I do watch...

  • Modern Family
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Transparent (Still binge watching... this one is great!)
  • 2 Broke Girls

I used to watch Grey's Anatomy but stopped at the 2nd or 3rd season.

Things I would like to Receive

Below are some things that I would like to receive:

  • Washi Tapes
  • Postcards (If you are sending me blank ones, I would like those that are illustrated/ designed/ vintage/ B&W)
  • Postage Stamps (Both used or new)
  • Puzzles (Especially Sudoku puzzles)
  • Stickers (All are welcome, but I am especially looking for those that are rectangle so I can use them to hide the barcodes on the postcards while sending.)
  • Other stuff that you would like to share ;-)

If you are swapping Washi tape samples with me, please send some thin ones (≤0.25 inch) if you have them. I find them incredibly useful in decorating the side of postcards! So an ideal washi tape swap for five sample would probably have 2 thin tapes and three regular ones for me. :-)

Thank you so much for sharing with me!!!

Characters I Like

I like cute stuff, and I like cartoon characters! Below are some characters that I especially like:

  • Baymax!
  • Snoopy
  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Disney tsum tsum characters
  • Maruko Chan
  • Gudetama
  • Stitch

Comment: I think Cavallini cards are great. I don't see too many of them, and while I have a few, I find them hard to part with... they are just so nice. I just let some go and make other people happy!!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. Michaels is one of my favorite stores, so much so that when I was in grad school I actually worked there for 2.5 years, and now that I've got a "real" job miss it dearly.

Profile hello #6. Hello and greetings from Arlington, Virginia. My name is Luna and I’m your partner. I saw that you travel quite a lot and that you’ve been to Italy. I’m going there in January and I’m so excited. Mostly for the food hehehe. Hope all is well and have a marvelous day :)

pineandbramble on Oct 24, 2017:

hello fellow swap partner (hello profile swap) how neat to read that you have done so much traveling this past year. which was your favorite adventure, and why? we are adventure-enthusiasts as well, and try to take 2-3 "big" trips each year, with our three children (who are ten, seven and two..) traveling with them is always slightly chaotic, but it's neat to see them take-in the beauty of other places. we also take a lot of little trips here and there throughout the year, to places that are off-the beaten track, but not so far away. this summer we spent a week on a litle island off the coast of maine, enjoying nature & reading lots of books + swimming in the sea (there was a beach filled with sea glass and shards of old pottery that washed up, so we collected quite a few pieces)..we also spent a week at the sea in new jersey, in a lovely 100 year old cottage with crooked floors and candle mounts on the walls, for when there was no electricity. another weekend we went to an indoor water-park, and we have a trip to salem in a few weeks, to have a witchy-adventure soaking in the history of the salem witch trials. not sure what our big trip will be come winter, but i have a few ideas! we homeschool, so each trip is also a learning experience.

im a post-crossing nerd too, and have been a member for almost a year. i absolutely love postcards from all over the world. if you ever want to exchange, do let me know!

hope your days' filled with love & light -- tracy

Profile Hello #5.

Hello Jess! Nice to read your profile. The movie "Secret life of pets" I have also seen in the cinema and I really laughed to much about it. The people who wrote it must have animals themselves, it was really realistic and funny. Minions are also a blast. Good luck on your study. Please: could you rate me quickly? Greeting from Holland, Cindy ♥

jaimierandolph on Oct 17, 2017:

Hello from Livingston, Texas this cool morning! I'm sitting outside on the patio of the hotel by the pool and it's about 66 degrees here this morning! It is so nice and cool! I hope that your having a wonderful Tuesday morning as well! Hugs- Jaimie Profile Hello #5
