In 2010 I joined Swap-bot under the name cthululu. I was keeping up with my swaps until a difficult personal event prevented me from doing so, and as a result I flaked on multiple people. After things had calmed down, I was too embarrassed and overwhelmed to come back and fix things. Well, two years later, here I am, ready to do just that. Several people have been extremely generous and gave me a second chance, and for that I thank them. There are two 1s left that I will send out as soon as I hear back from the users who haven't logged on in quite some time. I possible they will be resolved immediately.
IF I HAVE FLAKED ON YOU IN THE PAST OR OWE YOU A RATING UNDER THE ACCOUNT CTHULULU, PLEASE PM ME SO I CAN MAKE IT UP TO YOU. YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO CHANGE THE RATINGS, JUST LET ME MAKE THINGS RIGHT.
I rate the second I touch a computer after your swap has arrived to me.
I know my ratings aren't the best right now, but I assure you I DO NOT FLAKE. If you haven't received a swap from me for whatever reason, PLEASE let me know and I will gladly resend. I am going to get into the habit of taking pictures of my swaps for proof.
I use a highly accurate kitchen scale to weigh my swaps and use the "Calculate Postage" section of the USPS website to figure out how much postage is needed on what I send out. However, we all know the system can be screwy, so IF YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA POSTAGE ON A SWAP I SEND TO YOU: please let me know. I will make it up to you.
I am a mother, an Appalachian transplant living on the coast of Maine, a traveler, a recovering wanderer. I'm a collector of stories and a great listener.
I was once my own worst enemy. I'm in a different place now, one that lets me breathe and grow. The birth of my beautiful daughter has helped me with this. Reaching out to others has, too.
My favorite books ever are "Breakfast of Champions" by Kurt Vonnegut and "White Oleander" by Janet Fitch.
Sadly, I don't read as much as I used to due to college sort of burning me out of it.
My favorite show ever is Parks and Recreation, I'm a HUGE Ron Swanson fan. I also enjoy watching Workaholics and Archer with my SO. I've also been watching Doctor Who lately.

My baby was born on Valentine's Day 2012. Her name is pronounced "Bry-za", the i sounding like the one in Brian.
Did I mention I love ferrets?
I have 3 fur babies named Nola, Doc & Liam. Liam is the one above sleeping like he partied too hard.
I'm a child of chaos.
