About Me

Hi, I'm Kirsty. 26 years old and living in Auckland, New Zealand though originally from Greymouth (moving from a small town to New Zealand's biggest city).

I work as a travel consultant/customer service person for a bus company.

I love sending and getting stuff in the mail, one of the things that makes me really happy is going to the post office and finding my PO Box has actual mail in it. And I also like handing over things at the post office to send near and far.

My interests/likes include books, reading, writing, music (most kinds), cooking, cats, zines, collecting random things, mail, food, video games, comics/graphic novels, manga/anime and more I will add when I can think of it.

I'm interested in pen pals, swapping zines and other small paper things and also doing package/private swaps. I'm starting to get into ATCs and mail art so if anyone wants to swap/give some pointers to a newbie just PM me.

I'm looking forward to being active in this community.

Favorite Music

As far as genres of music go I like most things with a preference for rock, indie, pop-punk, ska, emo, acoustic, singer-songwriter stuff and punk. I also like some pop, nerdcore hip hop, country, metal and classical.

Favorite Books

I like humourous books that make me laugh, books about animals (especially cats!), music, travel, LGBTQ fiction and non-fiction, biographies... I'm starting to get into fantasy a bit. I like reading a lot of young adult/teen fiction and kids books. I'll give most books a try though not a huge fan of horror or crime (though I do like the crime novels if they are quirky)

Favorite Television

In no particular order:

How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Glee, Ugly Betty, Friends, The Simpsons Highlander, Family Guy, The Venture Bros, That 70's Show, Futurama, Flight of the Conchords, Scrubs, The Young Ones, Father Ted, The I.T Crowd, Doctor Who, Death Note, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad, Love Hina, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Full Metal Panic..

Things I collect/like

-Cats

-Dragons

-Tigers (and other 'big cats')

-Music notes

-Zines

-Chocolate

-Candy (especially sour candy)

-Books

-Graphic novels/comics/manga (in English) (I'm not a big superhero comic fan though if it is an interesting story I'd enjoy it most likely)

-Bookmarks

-Favourite colour: blue

-Letterwriting paper/sets/notecards

-Stickers

-Supplies for zine making, letter writing, ATCs and mail art

-mix cds/tapes

-Letters

-Postcards

-Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch)

-Rubber stamps

Though I'm not fussy, I like most things that are created/given from the heart.. even if that sounds cheesy.

Note

If you haven't received anything from me (lost in the mail) or if what I have sent isn't to swap requirements please let me know and I'll resend.

Comment: Thanks for your list in zine form (I must learn how to make zines one of these days!). And especially thanks for the On a Sugar High zine which I haven't finished but am enjoying -- I love knowing about your life off in Auckland and it makes me even more want to learn to make zines.

Comment: We have very similar tastes! The Shadow in the North and The Name of the Star have been on my wish list for a while and I love Fairest and The New Deadwardians (but I am a little behind).

Comment: You sound like a person who will keep writing -- there are times in our lives when other stuff takes over, but the writing won't go away -- keep on enjoying the flow of words whether computer or long hand and stay with Nanowrmo -- it's excellent discipline.

Hi Kirsty. I just wanted to check in with you. I haven't received your 1st Quarter Reading Log yet. I'll wait a few more days to hear from you before I rate you. Thanks!

ImzadiRose on Jul 17, 2013:

Wanted to check to see if you have received my 2nd Quarter Reading Log yet? I sent it out on the 1st. I also sent you a message letting you know it was going out then so you could keep an eye out for it.
