Me: I'm in my mid-40's. I'm happily single and live alone. Recently graduated from nursing school and now work as an RN. I was mom to a wonderful kitty cat for 16 years but she died this past summer (July 2017). I'm still really sad about it so I'm sorry in advance if I write you and talk about it. I try hard to not be a downer.
Now that I'm done with school, I have more time for fun stuff. My main hobbies are pen palling, reading, and writing in my journal. I've been pen palling for over 15 years and write to ladies all over the world. Love to read and pre-college was averaging between 65 and 70 books per year.
I am interested in a great many subjects and activities. I find that my hobbies and interests tend to change from year to year as I discover new things, and rediscover old ones. See my Likes/Dislikes section for specifics.
My Swaps: I try my best to send something you will like based on your profile and what I have in my stash. I'm not perfect. If you don't think I lived up to my end of the bargain based on the rules of our swap, please message me and I'll try to make it right. If you don't get any package at all, again, please message me and I will be happy to resend. Thank You!
When You E-Mail Me: Please put Swap-bot in the subject line of any emails sent to me. This will ensure that my filter captures the email and puts it in the correct folder. Otherwise, it may end up in Spam. Thank You!
FRIENDSHIP BOOKS AND SHEETS
I enjoy making and swapping these, however I AM A LOW VOLUME SWAPPER. Please DO NOT SEND EXTRA unless you have contacted me and I have told you I can take more than the swap requirement. I do not want piles of these sitting here for months. It is rude and unfair to the owners of the books/sheets. I do not mind Homers at all. It is OK to send me more than one in a swap. However, I consider Homers to count in the required swap total. If the requirement is 3, don't send me 3 plus a Homer.
I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm being picky, but I have had a serious issue with oversends since I started to do Friendship books again. If this continues, I will stop participating in them.
I read a nice mix of fiction and non-fiction. Anything that catches my eye, really. Some books I especially like:
I love horror (not unseemly gore), post-apocalyptic, mystery/suspense, an occasional action/thriller, comedies and comedy hybrids (i.e. comedy/drama, comedy/romance, etc.). Some of my favorites, both current and past:
I love tea!
Any brand is good but my favorite is Republic of Tea.
My favorite types of flavors (but I'm always happy to try something new):
Rooibos and rooibos blends tend to give me some digestional issues. I would appreciate avoidance of sending me this type of tea.
I am Allergic to Coffee!! (That's coffee, NOT caffeine. I can drink caffeine just fine.) Please do not send me any food or beverage item which contains coffee!
I'm probably the only person who doesn't collect anything. Yeah, I'm weird. lol But here are general lists of things I like and don't like, in no particular order.
Coffee, and items that feature coffee. (I'm allergic, see Food and Beverages section)
Sports anything. I don't play or watch any sport.
For now, Please avoid sending me anything with hearts on it or romantic/Valentine's theme. I have somehow ended up with a plethora of heart infested stickers and stationary items despite my abhorrence of Valentine's Day. When I manage to destash on these I'll remove this bullet.
I don't collect or trade Postcards, Stamps, or any type of Art Cards. Please don't send them to me.
I DO NOT CRAFT. Please do not send me crafting supplies. I'm on Swap-Bot to trade mostly paper, flat items to enhance my pen pal hobby. Anything flat and decorative is ok. I have no use for anything else and no one to pass it on to.
Religious themed mail or items. I'm an Atheist. I believe everyone has the right to believe in whatever rocks their world. I would never try to convince you that your belief system is wrong. Please don't try to convert me, convince me that empirical based science is wrong, or imply that I don't have moral or ethical beliefs because I don't belong to your brand of belief system. Thank You.
Change in ourselves and in the world in which we live may not take place in a hurry: it will take time. But if we don't make an effort nothing will happen at all. Change will not take place because of decisions taken by governments or the UN. Real change will take place when individuals transform themselves guided by the values that lie at the core of all human ethical systems, scientific findings, and common sense.
