Hello! My name is Emi! I am 31 years old, I turn 32 in July. 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. :)
