About Me

Hello! My name is Emi! I am 32 years old. I'm hoping to make some good friends who share some of the same interests as me.

I do not have many friends at the moment because years ago I turned my life around for the better so ended up burning long term bridges. I dont drink, do drugs, or smoke. I am a recovering addict so I prefer not to be around those activities but I do not mind having friends that drink on occasion. I have been drug free for almost 8 years and smoke free for 3 years. Right now I am looking to become healthier and more positive! My husband and I want to try to have kids soon so I am trying to get to a healthy weight before I get pregnant!

My main interests right now are Bible study, eating healthy, spending time in the outdoors, reading lots of books, sewing, crafting, sending snail mail, snuggling with my cats, and starting my online business. I also love to play board games, and table top RPG games. I’m getting into living history more these days and would love to do it more often. I am very interested in Japanese culture and enjoy a lot of things from Japan. My husband and I are hoping to visit Japan someday in the near future! I hope to learn Japanese fluently someday.

Right now we have dreams of having our own homestead so we are working towards that goal! I spend hours on YouTube watching videos related to homesteading and skills I can utilize once we have our own place! Currently I am very interested in learning how to can food! Someday I hope to own alpacas because I love them soooo much!

As far as penpals go, I'm interested in doing many different types of swaps since I'm interested in so many different things. I'm open to letter writing, snail mail, craft swaps, postcards, etc. I can do long term or one time swaps. I am on the search for a few long term pen pals from other countries. I have never had a long term pen pal. I consider myself a Believer in Yeshua as Messiah (Jesus Christ) and so I would love some penpals that share the same faith as me, but I dont mind at all having penpals who are of a different faith. :)


Bible study, crafting, baking, upcycling, reading, volunteering, thrift shopping, DIY projects, helping others, spending time with family and friends, playing and snuggling with my cats, camping, hiking, collecting natural elements for crafts, video games, watching tv shows, bonfires, road trips, gardening, shopping at the farmers market, learning about different cultures, being out in nature, bento boxes, living history, board games, D&D, going to museums, model trains, traveling, sewing, cosplay, painting, drawing.

Favorites & Dislikes

LOVES: I love Japanese mascots! I especially love to learn about the different mascots from each town and region! I love Rilakkuma and Little Twin Stars!

I collect bookmarks and postcards. I also really love Alpacassos, which are alpaca plushies, but I only have two right now!

My favorite colors are pastels; light blue, light pink, light purple, mint green. I love natural colors as well... Deep forest greens, light and dark browns, beige, tans, and colors of flowers.

My favorite animals are otters, alpacas, cats, and owls.

My favorite foods are pizza, nachos, salad, veggies, quinoa, soup, ramen, sushi, curry, Mac n cheese, strawberries, bananas, oatmeal.

DISLIKES: I'm not a fan of dark styles, unless it's nature themed. Also dislike monochrome, or anything without loads of color. I hate anything black licorice flavored. I don't like mean people or internet trolls. I don't like prejudiced or judgmental people!

TEA SWAPS: I love almost every flavour of tea... except for anything with licorice! So if you are ever doing a tea swap with me, just know I do not like the licorice flavour. Anything else is fair game! ^_^

Favorite Crafts

I really love anything creative and hand made. I love trying new crafts. Please share your favorite crafts with me!

I also love trashy junky stuff! I love recycling stuff to use to make crafts!

Favorite Media

I love to read! I love lots of genres but my favorites are fantasy, mystery, historical fiction, historical romance, romance, classics, and biographies. I read a lot of Christian fiction. I also read a lot of devotionals.
