Hello. My name's Ari. I am excited to be apart of the swap-bot project. I am an avid reader, cooker, and postcard-collector. Looking forward to swapping with people from all types of cultures, traditions and mind-sets.
I have just began my first year at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. It's a super non-traditional school and I am really excited for all that it will offer to me. =) I soon hope to be a health coach under the teachings of a physiology and health major. Any packages you are sending will go directly to my campus. Thanks.
P.S. I restrict dairy, meat and eggs from my diet. Please keep that in mind for any swaps we do together. Thank you!
P.P.S. Love surprises and prefer things to be original versus popular.
Anything musical related..
I Capture the Castle
Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Girl with a Pearl Earring
So B. It
The Blue Plate Special
How to Say Goodbye in Robot
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Say Goodbye, Gracie
The Glass Castle
Just to name a few...I love mostly all I read. And like memoirs too.
Phantom of the Opera
Pursuit of Happyness
A Little Princess
The Secret Garden
At home, we do not have TV and so we catch the latest through youtube.
Collecting postcards (see my postcrossing for ideas)
Cooking/Baking---this is a must some days when the cafeteria food is just not up to par
Organizing family events and vacations
Reaching my goals
I really prefer non-touristy postcards unless...
*You recommend visiting there
*It is some sort of marketplace whether that be food or "flea"
*It's just must be known to the world
*The scenery is life-changing
Other postcards I enjoy:
*Odd or out-of-the-box
Any postcard you enjoy will do. I'm sure I'll enjoy it as well.
Feel free to also look at my postcrossing for some ideas..
This list is really like the "ink on the paper". It is something to be read and considered as you sort of get the vibe of me, dissect my photo and just go with your gut feelings. Part of the fun of all this is seeing me through your own eyes.
Not much black
"Odd" Kitchen Objects/Gadgets--Prefer it to be something I cannot necessarily buy myself.
Cultural T-Shirts (size small)
Ingredients (as long as vegan and completely safely packaged)
Unique/Unusual Teas--Loose or Bagged
Documentaries/Independent Films--especially pertaining to food systems
Your local newspaper
Hayao Miyazaki Things
"Unique" Playing Cards
No cosmetics or perfumes- bars of soap are OK if each ingredient actually exists in nature and is "real"/"all-naturally" vegan and herbal
No shampoos or body-washes
No candles--except I am looking for something to make my dorm room smell really nice that is not like febreze, but something actually real...
Stamps--why are they always increasing? =O
Snacks--especially to dip my tea into!
2013 Mini Calendars
Please ask before sending anything you are unsure of.
Smoke free. No nudity or anything "inappropriate."
