Hello! I'm a nineteen 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. I love collecting stamps, postcards, and anything vintage. I also enjoy reading and gardening in my spare time.
I'm a total newbie on swapbot, so I'm still figuring out the mechanics. I have been sending letters and postcards for a while now, so I can say I know more or less about the workings of the snailmail world. I will, of course, 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 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.
Dos: Send me a long letter about you, your culture, or anything you want to tell me.
Donts: Send me short letters :(
I prefer not to talk about religion, discrimination, and or other offensive topics (when we get to know each other better, I may be open to discussing it, though).
I like any kind of store bought/handmade postcards. No free/ad postcards. I don't mind if you send it to me naked or in and envelope, but please write me a note on the back of the postcard :)
Favorite kinds of postcards: - about your city or country - with photos of nature - about your culture - any kind of art postcard
Dos: Please write a note on the back of the postcards. Tell me something about you or your city and country. Tell me something about you culture, history, myths, legends. I love learning about different cultures. Tell me something that I might not know about you, your culture, or the world in general.
Don'ts: Please don't send me anything related to religion, discrimination, and or other offensive topics.
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 :")
Extra: Not something that I collect, but I enjoy receiving tea. I don't have any allergies and I'd love to try many different kinds of tea.
Stickers and washi are also welcome. Anything I can use in my journal is very welcome ;)
This is just a little idea from me in case you're stuck on what to write.
