Hello! I'm a twenty year old girl, living in Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm currently studying Biology in university and hope to be able to work as a scientist in the future.
Hobbies and interests: - I love reading, mostly classics, general fiction, and fantasy. I'm trying to read more nonfiction books about Biology. I'm not a big fan of thrillers and horrors (although I will read some good ones occasionally). - I love collecting stamps and postcards. - I enjoy gardening in my spare time. - I can also knit and crochet. I'm currently learning how to make embroidery. - I love flowers. - My favorite food is cinnamon rolls :D
I will always try to send out swaps on time. If I have to post a swap late (usually because of schoolwork and other school-related events), I will send you a message. If my swap doesn't reach you within a month or two, please leave me a message. I am happy to resend. Mail from my country can sometimes take a long time to arrive.
I became interested in the world of snail mail only recently, and so far I have enjoyed the process of sending and receiving mail. My mother gave me her stamp and postcard collection to continue the hobby. I enjoy looking through her collection every now and then. Snail mail makes me feel like I'm living in a different era. A small escape from the mundane everyday life, I suppose.
I like happy things. Anything to make me laugh or smile :D
Nothing much, really... Not really into those kiddie or reward stickers, though... I don't know what to do with them.
Also, trigger warning! I'm easily triggered by mentions of self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
I'm also not very fond of swimming pools.
I enjoy reading long letters (and I mean LONG letters). They can be about anything: rambling, venting, daydreaming. I'm okay with simple letters that have no decorations. I don't mind if you don't send me any goodies at all. I write letters to make new friends and exchange stories :D
I like any kind of store bought, handmade, or even free / ad postcards, as long as they are interesting :D I don't mind if you send me a postcard naked or in an envelope, but please write me a note on the back of the postcard :)
Ideas on what to write on the back of your postcards: - your favorite plants / animals - a favorite quote from a book that you're currently reading (don't forget to write down the title and the author so I can check it out!) - something about you or your hometown / and country - something about you culture, history, myths, legends - something that I might not know about you, your culture, or the world in general - a fun fact - a funny story - the reason why you chose to send that specific postcard for me :D
Favorite kinds of postcards: - flora / fauna themed - about nature in general - about your hometown / country - about your culture - any kind of art postcard
I'll add to this list when I've come up with some other random facts about me. For some reason, I've come up blank :")
This is just a little idea from me in case you're stuck on what to write.
