About Me

I'm independent, curious, and creative. Usually, I'm very private and need plenty of time alone to think things through and work on subjects and projects that really interest me. I tend to have a very small cluster of close, trusted friends and don't initiate social activities very often unless I'm really comfortable. I enjoy learning new things and since I consider myself pretty imaginative, I also like coming up with original solutions to problems. When it comes to repetition, I get bored fairly quickly, but then again, who doesn't?

I'm also a super logical person, and I think my best strength is being able to remain calm and cool in almost any situation. Because I'm bothered by unfairness and inconsistency, I'm rarely influenced by other people's opinions, especially if there's some sort of emotional backing to their argument. I speak my mind honestly, if sometimes, a bit bluntly.

Above all, I strive to exceed my own high standards rather than worry about trying to please others, so I'm always competing with myself.

Even my family and closest friends usually don't know how much I care about them because I rarely share my most private feelings. I guess that's because I think showing emotion is just a way of making yourself vulnerable for attack. If I could, I would wear sunglasses all the time. The eyes are the windows to your soul and, truthfully, I don't want anybody looking into my soul.

I easily see both sides of an issue, so I'm great at finding the flaws in other people's arguments. Usually, if I find something I really like, I'll just get up and do it right then. But sometimes my relaxed attitude about deadlines and neatness can make me run late and procrastinate.

I try to find humor in everything, and I can't be offended. So if you don't know what to write on a letter or postcard, just put a joke on there.

Favorite Music

I don't listen to music very much, but I do like "A Thousand Foot Crutch" and "Cute is what we aim for." I guess I'm willing to listen to anything that's good. No screamo though, I can't stand that, or anything of that type.

Favorite Books

This is tough, but, I'll have to say: The Hunger Games series, The Reckoning, Water for Elephants, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

Favorite Movies

I LOVE documentaries! I've seen so many good movies, but my two favorites are Inception and Frequency.

Favorite Television

I don't have TV at my place. But my three favorite tv shows are The X-Files, South Park, and Golden Girls.


I've been officially collecting postcards for a year. I have all kinds of postcards through out my collection, from zombies, to polar bears, so while I love all postcards, my favorite are black and white portraits.

I want to try collecting state postcards, so if you're not from: Colorado, New Mexico, Alabama, California, or Kansas, then please do send a postcard of the state you live in!

Would I prefer a black and white portrait over a state postcard? Yes, but black and white portraits are a lot harder to find, so feel free to just send a state one.

I'm always willing to do a private swap for postcards, so just message me anytime.

Lucky Receiver Of My Mail?

If you received mail from me, know that I have a lot of fun when I write. So try to understand my sense of humor, and please don't take offense (though I don't see that happening... you'll be surprised). Yes, I can be a little eccentric with my writing, but I'll do whatever to make a card/letter/postcard unique.


• Candles
• Postcards
• Letters
• Letters that have drawings on the envelope • Tourist T-shirts (I’m Mens: Small). So like a T-shirt that says the name of the state/city it came from.
• I think one of the bets gifts you can receive is a shirt that’s made JUST for you, like one made on the t-shirt designing web sites, or even hand-made t-shirts that are clearly made with you in mind.
• I absolutely love cards and letters that are very original. So it can be handmade, or a message that’s really crazy, random, or personal (but still understandable). I’ll keep it forever.
• Gummy candy and Chewy candy


•The smell of tobacco
•Cards and letters with general messages like, “Happy (fill in holiday name here), have fun, best wishes, be safe, “ Basically, if you replaced my name with somebody else’s name, and gave them the card, would they believe that it’s theirs?
•Chocolate by itself, something like 3 musketeers is fine, because it’s not JUST chocolate.
•Black Licorice
•Hard candy (with the exception of Jolly Ranchers)

Comment: Thanks so much for the sweet comment! My son is a sophomore this year and I think he enjoys having a life away from us! I don't think he will blog, but that is ok, I know he loves us! Thank you for the lovely suggestion though! I wish you all the best in your collage life and hope you are not too homesick! Hugs! ;)
Response: Aw, thanks, Vicky!

Comment: many thanks for this fine card... but you made me work for it as you did not identify the swap....bad Ozias.. bad..LOL Can you tell I have been training a puppy>? Cheers, Linda
Response: Ah! I'm so sorry Linda! As you can see, I'm a bit new to swap-bot, so I need to start getting in the habit of doing that. My apologies!

Comment: Thanks so much for the Denver card! If you want anymore private PC swaps just let me know, I am always up for them :) Happy Holidays!
Response: Alright! I definitely will! Thanks again!
Comment: You did great on your first swap! I love the card and the pictures. You drew them all yourself? Adorable!
Response: Yeah, I think I must have spent 3 hours on your card, Andrea. I don't like any big white spaces on postcards/letters, so if I end up with some, I fill them in with drawings. I hadn't planned on the whole winter wonderland on the envelope, but it turned out great. I just wish I could of scanned eveything. By the time I was done working on the card and the envelope, I became really attatched to it, and was reluctant to send it, but I wanted somebody else to enjoy it too. I only send things that I would like to receive myself, so I put a lot of effort into my mail. That's why I thought I found paradise when I ran into this site! It makes me very glad to hear you liked it, that's the best part when I send something out. I'm very glad you were my first partner. Oh, and yes, I did the drawings myself. I took two drawing classes in high school, so I know a little bit about it, but I'm no Picasso, haha.

sorry, should have mentioned that was for 'read my profile'.

I can be too blunt too and I also have a small group of close friends. I am also logical and calm in difficult situations, since I am a Registered Nurse it's a good thing. For instance, when my son got suddenl very sick, I was totally calm calling 911, it wasn't until I was sure they were coming that I started to cry acting like a 'regular' mom. I've been wanting to see Inception so I'm glad you liked it.

I enjoyed reading your profile. I almost always end letters and notes with best wishes from Debra. lol I am going to work on being more personal with my sign offs after reading your profile page. I mean it when I say it but after looking at it the way you see it I want to change it. I don't send greeting cards. I like that you write and speak honestly. That is refreshing. I strive for the same way. I also enjoy a lot of quiet time and if I don't get enough I get grumpy. After reading your profile page, I made a wish that I might get to receive one of your postcards. Candles and postcards I like a lot. I no longer enjoy writing letters but enjoy reading them. I haven't read any of the books you listed but I read a lot. I miss the X-files. I enjoyed reading your profile, best wishes, Debra (TexyDeb)

Ha ha ha, gotcha... I think I would like to meet you and just by reading your profile I am going to try harder in my note writing on my postcards to be better at ending them, Deb

Hello! I am one of your partners from the Read my Profile and post a comment swap.

I see you live in Colorado! That's one place I've never been. Do you ever ski? It's been snowing here at my home in Missouri for 24 hours now. We love it when we get snow; especially my son who hasnt had school for the last two days.

I have a small postcard collection that is ever growing. I love crafting all different kinds of things and am always trying something new, because I get bored too easy doing the same thing over and over.

I hope you have a quality day!

I'm Ezgi from Turkey and I'm writing you for "read my profile and post a comment" swap.It was interesting reading your profile (I need to say there were some words I needed to look up though x)) and I couldn't agree more to the statement "showing emotion is just a way of making yourself vulnerable for attack"! I'm also a postcard collector.I've got more or less 600 now,but I always want to receive more! x) B&w potrait cards must be difficult to find.I hope you'll be able to enlarge your collection soon!I've seen the movie Inception recently and it just amazed me!I think it is one of the best movies ever.I used to watch documentaries last year and I really enjoyed "Life".You should watch it if you havent!Anyway,nice to meet you!
