About Me

Hi there.

My name's Cass and I live in Australia. No, we don't all ride kangaroos :P When I grow up, I want to be interesting.

I'm interested in lots of things, including video games (I play DS, PSP and PS3 titles), books, reading, writing, zines, sleeping, watching movies, reading and buying even more books, comedy and mail, of course!

I adore stationery, magazines, books, envelopes and all of that sort of thing. Swap bot sounded amazing because I love recieving mail and sending it :)

Looking forward to finding people to swap with and write letters to. My mailbox is lonely and you should make it feel loved (hahaha, that's my way of asking for penpals :))

Favorite Books

Mystery Man, Brideshead Revisited, jPod and Tuesdays with Morrie are some of my faves. Again, reccomendations for books always welcome. I adore the following authors:

  • Colin Bateman
  • Douglass Coupland
  • Karin Slaughter
  • Jeffrey Deaver
  • Matthew Reilly
  • Eoin Colfer
  • Lee Child

I also love reading zines :) Hopefully I'll soon have some of my own to trade and send out :D

Favorite Music

I listen to a range of genres. Here are some artists I listen to:

  • KISS
  • Cee Lo Green
  • Kaki King
  • Amy Winehouse
  • instrumental piano
  • Rufus Wainwright -Good Charlotte
  • Kisschasy
  • The Getaway Plan
  • Adele

I've also fallen in love with Hans Zimmer's compositions for film.

Favorite Television

The Mentalist is the only show I watch religiously.

I also love: - 30 Rock -Arrested Development - American Dad - Angry Boys

Favorite Crafts

I don't really do a lot of craft as such (for a textiles assignment, I broke the sewing machine a number of times :@) but would love to learn to sew and knit in future :)

Wishlist

-zines - letters -penpals - anything in French - anything Irish

Comment: Hi Cassandra. Thanks for the occupy card. Kind of "freudian" that the post office placed this white strip across the bottom of your card - the white strip with the orange machine coding - covering up your message. Fortunately those peel off easily. Your futures sounds perfect to me! Thanks and season's greetings to you!

Comment: Thanks for your note and your answers. You didn't say which province you're in but I guess it must be one of the more northerly ones. Of course we have winter now, so your summer weather sounds nice to me.

Comment: Dear Cassandra, Thank you for my card! I wonder... is it the same in Australia, do most students with modest to nonexistent means (ie. anything but extremely wealthy) need to incur debt to go to university in Australia? That is pretty much the case here in the U.S. Pretty much everyone that I know has student loan debt. With prices as they are, it is nearly impossible to work full-time and afford tuition without loans, I hope all is well with you, mm

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful letter you sent me. Do you still see the Buddah statue every day? Does your Mom still think all your "snail mail" is crazy? I hope you keep swapping and have more great experiences here on Swap-Bot!!

I think I will join the others and hope you will fill out your profile a little more. :o) That said, Australia is a place I've always wanted to visit. Much because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 80's series Return To Eden :o) Happy swapping! I hope you will like it here! Big hugs from Renate in Norway :o)
