I'm Neon. I used to be on this site a lot, but haven't done a swap in ages. It's been on my mind, so hello again, July 2020!
I'm 38, definitely and '80s/'90s kid, and I live just outside of Portland, OR, with my fiance. I'm queer as fuck, non-binary (they/them or he/him pronouns for me please!), sober, and ready for the world to be less of a dumpster fire.
I like the sun, fresh air, going for walks and jogs in my neighborhood, weird snacks, traveling (especially Tokyo or any Disney parks), adventures, bright-ass clown vomit rainbow fashion, journaling, Disney, listening to loud music, singing, learning languages, crocheting, UV resin, cross-stitching, making tiny things, making weird things, watercolor, making zines, and rainbows. Someday I will learn to sew.
My favorite characters are KIRBY (I have a giant rainbow Kirby tattoo), Oswald (Disney rabbit), anyone from Steven Universe, PreCure (A la Mode and Twinkle are my favorite seasons), and Yoshi (from Mario). I also just love Disney in general!! I go to the parks as often as I can, which isn't very often, and Tokyo Disney Resort is my favorite! I also love Sanrio and my favorite characters are Hangyodon, Keroppi, Strawberry King, and Wish Me Mell.
I love bunnies and frogs! Like, really a lot!
I am outspoken and what some people would probably call an "SJW", but I call "being a decent human being." I don't like positivity culture and I believe it's toxic. It's fine to be optimistic or non-violent, but it's also important to face the realities of 2020 - things are fucking hard and it's okay to not be okay or to be sad or to be angry.
I love cute things, but I like dark things as well. I guess I have two different sides to me. The cute side is my super rainbow side that likes bunnies and idol cartoons and the dark side is my punk/emo side that likes weird dead things in jars and creepy clowns.
I love Tokyo - it feels like a weird home away from home. I take a lot of inspiration from J-fashion, specifically decora, pop kei, and to a lesser extent, fairy kei (I love it on others, but I'm more into neons and brights than pastels). I also love GIANT NECKLACES, especially with some kind of food charm or plushie hanging off of them.
I love having pen pals and although sometimes I go months without writing, I will get back eventually, I promise!! I enjoy pen pals for the letters, not just for swapping stuff. I like to have friends across the country and world and hear about other people's lives. I especially love to have other queer pen pals, or also pen pals with other folks that have ADHD!
I also love art that you made, whatever it is. I used to have a "tiny art wall" that was a lot of SB art, but I've moved and can't put much on the walls in my new place :( I still have a little place where I keep treasures from people though!
It's hard to explain myself succinctly, LOL. You can look at my Instagram and probably get a better of idea of what kind of weirdo I am there.
Also, I just want to add I did flake on 2 swaps many years ago- one I eventually completed and the other I did not (hence the two 1s, and one of the 3s). As someone suggested in the rating, it was just more than I could handle at the time, but I learned a lesson about not taking on too many big swaps when my life is busy!
The other 3 was complete crap and I did the swap perfectly as described, years later I still don't know what went wrong there...maybe it got eaten up in the mail or something? We will never know...
I mostly just listen to the same music I've liked since the '00s/'90s.
I like stuff that's loud - pop-punk, riot grrl, grunge, post-punk, emo...not metal so much though.
I also like J-pop and K-pop, but not really enough that I know any artists or anything. I put it on Spotify sometimes.
I also love Disney music, of course, but it usually makes me cry because I don't know when I'll be able to get back to a Disney park again!! :'(
I don't have a ton of time to read these days, and with all the shit in the world, my focus is...unreliable. I read in the bath sometimes. I like queer YA fiction the best, dystopian is good although a little close to home sometimes these days...
I also am going through a phase where I LOVE reading obnoxious business books, I don't even know, your guess is as good as mine as to why, LOL, but I've been reading Russell Brunson's Dotcom Secrets series and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. WHY?!
Queer stuff, documentaries, Studio Ghibli, cute things, Disney, cheesy Hallmark type stuff. Mostly things that are feel-good because the world is feel-bad.
I just watched the new Baby-Sitters Club and it was AMAZING! I watch a lot of anime, documentary shows, and teen dramas. I like Sabrina, Riverdale, Patriot Act, Umbrella Academy, Great British Bake-Off, Pose POSE POSE POSE POSE, Hollywood...IDK, whatever is on Netflix, I guess!
I also love Steven Universe.
I also watch a fair amount of YouTube. I like travel and food channels, mostly.
Crocheting doilies, journaling, making tiny things, UV resin, cross-stitch, watercolor, gluing things to things, pretending I know how to sew.
