Heya! My name is Lea, I’m a 26 year old Librarian from Richmond, VA.
I love books, reading, writing, and my job at the library! I have a ton of varied interests, including but not limited to:
My style is a combination of cottagecore meets witchy/gothy pagan punk. Big Baba Yaga energy!!
My apartment number is a little confusing in the swap-bot font: It's the letter "i" and the number 13!
Lo-fi chillhop beats to relax/study to, Folk, Filk!, Punk, Metal, Alt; All time favorites include Sleep Token, Lord Huron, Protest the Hero, The Wonder Years, The Oh Hellos, Ice Nine Kills, Poor Man's Poison, and The Devil Makes Three
- Anne of Green Gables
- A Psalm for the Wild-Built
- The Tea Dragon Society
- The Long Way To a Small, Angry Planet
- North American Lake Monsters
- Sci Fi Anthologies
I try to read over 100 books each year - check out my Goodreads! I tend to read a lot of YA/Middlegrade since that is the age group I work with.
My birthday is in October, I love the fall, and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I appreciate Halloween and fall-themed stuff year-round.
- I don't really like paisley
- I don't like dolls... they creep me out!
- Not a fan of kid/reward/teacher stickers, unless it's specific to my likes
- No planner items, please! I don't really use them
- No rose scents or flavours
- No skincare products (except from Lush, I have sensitive skin and that's the only brand that doesn't make me break out)
- Not a big fan of plain chamomile teas (which is funny because I have a chamomile tattoo)
My favorite holidays to celebrate are the Wheel of the Year! I especially love seasonal crafting, celebrating the turning of the seasons, and feeling in tune with nature.
I love celebrating Halloween too! And we celebrate a combo of Yule and secular Christmas in our house, which leads to a whole lot of cozy winter celebrations.
I also love weird and wacky holidays, they make me laugh! Sometimes we even plan library programs around weird holidays which is always a lot of fun. Did you know "National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day" is August 8?
I like pretty much all tea and coffee, though I am much more of a tea drinker than a coffee drinker.
I love both tea bags and loose leaf teas, and I am always happy to receive either! Flavored black tea and green teas are my all time favorites!
Please don't send anything with dairy mixed in because I am very allergic!!
I'm very allergic to dairy, and I am not a fan of rose scented or flavoured things. Sorry! I like it in theory, but it's just not my thing (it gives me a headache).
I keep a (mostly) vegan diet, but I'm not terribly strict about it.
Re: other people's allergies, I have a VERY fluffy Australian Shepard named Austin! I try my very best to keep his hair out of my swaps but he is a furry beast... apologies in advance if he sends you a little fluff as an extra.
I am so sorry to everyone that received a late swap from me or who was missing mail. I've reached out to everyone to see what I can do to make it right!
I was struggling a lot with my mental health in the fall of 2021 and decided to take a break from swapping after sending out my final batch of mail, but it seems that some things never got to folks, and since I was offline, I didn't know that they were MIA. I have done everything I can do to make up these swaps, but folks are either offline or have declined my offers to resend.
