Born, raised, and still living in The Bahamas. I plan to move in 2-3 years. Canada is my top choice, and the UK is in second place.
I went to university in Nova Scotia and loved it. I studied economics. I enjoy learning and would stay in school forever if it was feasible.
I spend a lot of time reading and writing. I write short stories, flash fiction, and I'm currently working on my first (to-be-published) novel. I'm in love with words.
I'm a bucket full of quirks. My sense of humour is ridiculous. I like it dry, dark, sarcastic, real, and highly hilarious. I don't like cheesy funny, and I'm not into standup comedy. Louis CK and Bill Burr are the exceptions. I like pretty much everything on WaldoPancake (UK friends, send me things from there for hearts!) and KnockKnockStuff.com.
Multipotentialite. Interested in lots of things. My work history is quite eclectic. Operations manager (ticketing company), yearbook editor (university), career assistant (university career development centre), youth worker, accounts manager (freight-forwarding company), administrator (non-profit). Add that to a truckload of volunteering, and you have my crazy resume.
Apple green is my favourite colour. I buy almost anything I see that's apple green. Love it! My bags, glasses, Pandora bracelet charms, cellphone case, water bottle... All apple green. :D
I love black tea (flavoured and unflavoured). I LOVE things with owls, elephants, and turtles. Other than those, I'm not fond of animals.
The packages that make me happiest have a mix of things I like, and are not just 5 bags of tea if it's a 5-item profile-based swap. I like variety. :)
I use a family post office box which is checked every Thursday. I usually collect my mail from the pile by Friday, but sometimes it doesn't happen until family dinner on Sundays.
I rate as soon as I receive packages, right in the middle of all the excitement. :)
If you are sending anything larger than a letter envelope, please include a little typed invoice outlining what you have sent with $1 or less as the value for each thing. Customs duties here are brutal! Doing that will help me as I will have to pay less to receive the awesomeness you have sent.
I ALWAYS send! Snail mail from The Bahamas is not the speediest. Please be patient! If you have not received your package from me in 2 weeks (5 weeks for UK, 6 weeks for Australia), please let me know. I want you to receive your package and love it. :)
If you do not receive an electronic swap by the deadline, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I have found that, unfortunately, people just wait to rate a one; if I don't contact to ask about the rating, they don't contact me to say they did not receive. There is no way for me to know you didn't receive something if you don't tell me. Please communicate!
I have been having major issues with the local post office. They have been losing packages (incoming and outgoing), sending them late (maybe after they find them?), and taking a long time to get notices to me about packages I need to collect. I can't tell you how many times I received packages months later stamped MISSENT TO BERMUDA or MISSENT TO BARBADOS which is ridiculous. If I owe you a package that you have not yet received, it may be on the way, but it may also be lost. If it has been 4+ weeks, PLEASE send me a message. I will resend as soon as I possibly can. I apologize for this ridiculous inconvenience and will do my best to make up for it.

I absolutely love finding new artists/bands, and I tend to like indie artists far better than mainstream ones getting all the airplay.
The Lovely Bones (Alice Sebold); Lullabies for Little Criminals (Heather O'Neill); A Piece of Cake (Cupcake Brown); Shoot Me (Lesley Crewe); The House at Riverton (Kate Morton); The Book of Negroes (also know as Someone Knows My Name, Lawrence Hill); The Night Circus (Erin Morgernstern); To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee)

I'm really not hard to please, especially when it's obvious that you read my profile and did your best to make me smile.
I know some people are all about the hearts, so if you want to be sure you'll get one, here are some items that guarantee it:
I finally decided to look into the whole zentangle thing that everyone loves. Now THAT is art I can handle. I have focus and can follow instructions, so maybe I'd be good at it? Haha.
If you're into zentangling and have any tips (the best supplies, where to find low prices, best pattern books, etc.), please let me know! And if you have any extras you'd like to pass on, I'd dance dance dance!
Yes, please! I'd love to do private swaps for:
