About Me

09/24/2023: I just got back (well, a few days ago) from my last trip of the summer. I spent almost a week in Virginia so you can imagine, I had a lot of swap stuff to catch up on when I returned. As of now, I am caught up on swaps (nothing was overdue but just yknow, swaps that had been assigned partners while I was gone, etc), messages, and ratings. If you have not been rated yet, it is because I have not received the swap yet. I hope everyone had an amazing summer and was able to do some traveling of your own!!! :)

Please, if you do not receive something after a reasonable amount of time, please let me know! I am always happy to do a re-send and it makes me sad to be rated down because of a problem that I didn't know existed. Thank you!

I'm a ska kid that refuses to grow up.

I love going to shows (in and out of state). Nothing makes me happier than being able to somehow incorporate a road trip and a ska show.

I play a lot of video games. I'm a huge Nintendo fan with my favorite video game franchise being Fire Emblem. I also love Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon.

I also have a PS5, a Steam account, and am an avid Pokemon Go player.

Currently binge watching: One Piece and Hunter x Hunter

Favorite Books

The Warriors Series by Erin Hunter is my all time favorite book series. If you have not read it, you need to put it on your "must read" list!!!

I am also a big Harry Potter fan

Favorite authors include Jodi Picoult and Meg Cabot

I also really enjoy historical fiction, stories about anthropomorphic animals, true crime, anything on WW2/the Holocaust, and memoirs/autobiographical stories.

Favorite Movies

Kevin Smith is my favorite director and Clerks is my favorite View Askew movie.

I really enjoy Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the Hunger Games.

I am a huge fan of the MCU.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking and bead weaving are the two biggies. I make my own greeting cards/Christmas cards.

I also dabble in other crafts...making wreaths, photo frames, etc.

Next on the list is learning how to crochet as well as learning how to make Terrariums (I saw some Pokemon ones at comic con last year and simply fell in love with them)

Collections

-Postcards
-Rubber duckies
-Lego minifigs
-POP! Funko
-Amiibos
-Enamel Pins

Postcard Preferences

I sign up for a lot of postcard swaps so thought it might be a good idea to list some of my preferences:

-Map cards
-Recipe cards
-Anything weather related (specifically lightning and tornadoes)
-Stadium cards
-Handmade cards
-Water related (waterfalls, bridges over rivers, etc.)
-Revere Beach/Revere, MA vintage cards (this is a very specific item in my collection as I grew up in Revere and collect all old Revere postcards. I have 70+ right now that I have found at various antique malls, etc.)

Likes

I do not expect extra goodies in the swaps I receive but I know that some like to include them so I thought I would list some likes/preferences:

-Postcards are always welcome! See my postcard preferences above but really, I'm happy with any postcards that you want to send.

-Washi tape. I am obsessed with washi. I use it a lot when I make cards.

-I will always accept cardstock of any kind. Especially patterned cardstock. I make a lot on my Cricut and love to have a good supply of cardstock to choose from :)

-Anything Kawaii/anime related will be very well received. This includes stickers, stationary, etc. Just anything. Some current obsessions are Gudetama, Aggretsuko, Bananya, My Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter, One Punch Man, One Piece, Demon Slayer...

-Enamel Pins are a new favorite of mine. If you can match a pin to my interest, I would for sure love it :)

-Address Labels! Someone sent me some recently and I never realized how nice it is to have this little convenience so I will never be sad about receiving address labels...

-These are items that are a little bigger but just in case I join a swap that requires a gift, etc. - I am always very happy with lego minifigures, amiibos, Funko POP figures, and cozy/fuzzy or cute socks. If you do plan to send a minifig, amiibo, or POP, please message me to make sure I don't already have it :)

I've been signing up for sock swaps when I see them so I thought I'd put some likes specific to socks: My size is 4-10 or 9-11 and I love anything except for toe socks. I am particularly fond of cozy/fuzzy socks but really, I love anything as long as it is cute. Ankle, knee high, crew...I love it all!

I'll add more to this list as I think of more. :)

Dislikes

-Religious items

-Tea samples. I don't drink tea :)

-Food. I don't sign up for food swaps and will not consume anything sent to me in the mail. I'm probably being weird about it lol but I will just toss it...it creeps me out...

-Beauty products. I barely ever wear makeup, I don't use lotion, I use Bath n Body works soap only so any other soap will get re-gifted, I don't wear perfume... Save the beauty products for someone who will truly appreciate them :)

-Die Cuts. It's not so much that I dislike them but I have a TON of them and I make almost everything on my Cricut now so I have no use for store bought die cuts. Unless they are related to one of my interests listed above (i.e. Harry Potter, Pokemon, etc). Otherwise, please save them for someone who will appreciate them :)

I will add more as I think of it :)
