About Me

UPDATE 9/1/2023 (September 1st, 2023) My dad recently got out of knee replacement surgery, and I rely on him to drive me to the post office. I'm unable to drive due to my anxiety and mental health issues and that impacts my ability to drive. I do apologize for any delays with international mail, and I apologize for the inconvenience that comes along with it. He won't be able to drive for several weeks, so I would need to ask a family friend to drive me to the post office to drop off international mail, or your mail will be delayed by one week until my dad recovers. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

UPDATE 9/12/2023 (September 12th, 2023) My dad is recovering and improving extremely well! He's able to drive, and that means I'll be able to send out international mail again! (WOO-HOO!)

4/1/2024 UPDATE (BREAKING NEWS): On March 26th, 2024, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. It's taken a mental toll on me because it's devastating to know she's battling a severe illness. I'll continue to send mail and send it on time as usual. I'll be accompanying her to as many doctor's appointments. I would also like to spend time with her as she's fighting this disease, but everyone's mail will be sent on time. If an issue arises, I'll communicate it with you. Thank you for understanding.

5/4/2024 UPDATE: My mother got diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, and she'll need chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation to treat her breast cancer. I apologize for any delays when it comes to mail. Happy/Swap mail will continue to be sent on time, but if something interferes or an issue arises, I'll communicate with my partner. Thanks for your understanding.

24-year-old clinical psychology college student! BPD and OCD friendly! Nice to meet you all, it's been a pleasure being on this platform. I've been struggling with mental health issues specifically depression related, and it can be hard for me to function at times. I do see a clinician for these issues, and it's something I'm working on, so thank you for your patience. I run out of stamps quite quickly, but I make sure to always have enough/backups!

POSTCARDS: PLEASE DO NOT SEND POSTCARDS WITH NUDITY. I can’t stress that enough. I would rather NOT have that delivered to my mailbox and it’s not appreciated. It’s very inappropriate and disrespectful towards me and the postal workers. I like postcards from around the world, I will accept anything handmade because I understand people love to craft and share it with others! It'll also be fun to see other people's creations! I do like Disney postcards or anything cartoony.

Favorite Music

My favorite musicians include: * Hozier * Taylor Swift * Florence and the Machines * Halsey * Melanie Martinez * Billie Eilish * La Oreja de Van Gogh * Jesse y Joy * Becky G * Dove Cameron * Madison Beer * Gracie Abrams * Olivia Rodrigo * Marina and the Diamonds * Sabrina Carpenter * Björk * Vance Joy * GLASS ANIMALS ♡ * Mitski! * Fletcher * BØRNS *Nessa Barett * Tate McRae * Nina Nesbitt * Noah Kahan * Gracie Abrams *boygenius * Renee Rapp

Favorite Television

*Superstore *Supergirl *Chicago PD *Chicago Fire *Law and Order SVU *Schitt’s Creek *Skins UK *2 Broke Girls (yeah :P) *Disenchament * FBI * Dickinson

BY THE WAY! Any Law and Order SVU fans, Rollins will always be my favorite! Olivia is great as well! I've been watching Law and Order SVU since I was 17, and I continue to watch it! I was very disappointed when Rollins left the show, but she's an amazing character with an interesting background! I also love Fin (he's so funny!) and Elliot (from the older series)! I prefer the seasons between the early 2000s (cause I grew up in the 2000s and it's very nostalgic) to 2018? Before Kat showed up because she was my least favorite character. I sometimes watch the newer episodes to unwind but yes! Law and Order SVU is so great!

P.S. Love any episode that will focus on Amanda (Rollins). She's very empathetic, and she's such a believable character! The whole series is written with organic dialogue! Consequently, there are episodes that are too heartbreaking and disturbing to watch.

DO NOT SEND

The Office, Friends, Harry Potter (never been a fan) anything witchy, frogs, toads, creepy insects, hateful/angry sayings, violent stickers (no no for me!) and I’d prefer not to have anything political. Please do NOT send anything with Ouija or Tarot cards. I don't appreciate anything like that. NO REWARD/TEACHER STICKERS. No memo pad sheets or notepad sheets since I don't have a use for them. Thank you.

Favorite Movies

• Coraline • Ferris Bueller's Day Off •Zootopia • Spirited Away • The Secret World of Arriety • Ponyo • Good Will Hunting • Radio • Read it and Weep• Finding Forrester• Patch Adams • Ladybird• Carrie (2013, yeah :P) • The Lovely Bones• Juno •Midnight in Paris• Riding in Cars with Boys (ALSO Personally, John Hughes movies are my cup of tea) Timothee Chalamet is adorable, and I'm trying to get more into his movies as well!

Wish List

Shark stickers (Or anything with sharks), lamb stickers, or lamb ephemera/ sheep ephemera. Jaws theme (got into sharks and Jaws in the summer of 2023). Fairy ephemera or stickers (currently writing a project that involves fairies, and I've also LOVED fairies since I was a kid!) I also don't mind emoji stickers since I use them in my journal! I will gladly accept religious items since I do practice the Catholic faith! ❤️ In need of St. Patrick's Day stickers! I think anything from Ireland is gorgeous and I'm so entranced with the Irish culture.

Comment: Thank you for the sweet postcard of the fairy. I love it & will find a use for it in the future. As you may know, Go Ask Alice is now listed as a work of fiction because the “editor” Beatrice Sparks lied about the diary, saying it was with the publishing company, who denied that. Also, there are some references to places in the wrong state, no mention of her birthday on her b day, etc. the consensus seems to be that because she was once a girl’s counselor, she used many of their stories as the basis for the “diary.” Also, there a lot of references to “Heavenly Father,” which is a distinctly Mormon reference to God. My opinion is that there was a diary, but the girl didn’t die. Some of those entries are definitely written by a teenager ¬ created by a Mormon adult. I’ like to read it& try to pick out the real & make up parts. You could probably find it used on Amazon for a couple bucks.

Comment: Thank you for the fairy postcard. I absolutely do believe in fairies. I get a fairy ring by my front door occasionally. I have little fairy doors around my house by the baseboards in case any want to visit
