About Me

Hi everyone. My name is Paola. I'm 36 years old and am a cancer. I was born in the year of the monkey.

I'm new to swap-bot. I'm really excited about being here, and hopefully am able to do more complicated swaps than electronic ones and postcard. :)

I am a registered nurse. I was a nurse's aide (CNA) first in 2000. Then I went to school to get my license as a licensed vocational/practical nurse (LVN/LPN) in 2004. After working as an LVN for a few years, I went through a school/work program at the hospital I worked at to get my registration. And in 2010, I was officially an R.N. I've been working in telemetry, step-down/PCU, and psych since 2004. Currently I charge in a psychiatric/rehab facility.

My favorite colors are pink and black. Not delicate pink, lol. Hot pink. Fluorescent pink. Like glow in the dark pink. No baby pink for me. ^.^

I have stuff with those colors and cute, girlie skulls that has bows on them or hearts as eyes. I even have scrubs that were personally made for me with those designs.

I Like animal prints too, but they got to be subtle. Usually they are in the background. (I have scrubs with animal prints on them too)

I've always liked to up-cycle/recycle. I like to organize things and have everything matching. :D The smell of vinyl when opening your pencil pouch and the smell of a brand new eraser erasing your mistakes on paper bring back good memories. I love shopping for school supplies! lol I'm sure you wanted to know that! heehee

I love the smell of sandalwood candles. I got it in my home and that stuff is WONDERFUL!

I like satire, I have a dry wit and am not easily offended.

If you have any questions for me, don't hesitate to ask!

LIKES/LOVES

I'm into paper-crafting. I like making junk journals and the like. I repurpose items and put them to new use in my journals.

Old hardback books (sometimes I take out the old pages and up-cycle the hardback into a new journal)

I love making envelopes. I never realized how much I enjoyed until I tried it for myself! :D

I love decorating envelopes with stickers and washi. I also use markers and pens. I think it makes our snail mail more interesting, don't you think? :D

Notebooks (graph or college ruled)

Notepads

Memo-pads

Pads

Memos

Sticky pads

Sticky flags

Bookmarks

Washi tape of all kinds

Decorated paperclips

Label tags

Recipe cards

Tickets of any kind

Invoices

Music sheets

Stamps (I have the regular block ones and the clear ones too)

Tea packets (the packets make perfect pockets!)

Mini note cards

Mini envelopes

Journal cards

Ephemera (Vintage, new, or regular pieces from everyday life.) I wanted to add here that I'd really like to build up my everyday ephemera by getting more from other countries and in other languages. That would be so awesome!

I love stickers! No. Really. I LOVE STICKERS! Lisa Frank ones. Cute girly skull ones with bows and hearts on them. I love the Sanrio brand. Sanrio-X, cute Korean ones too. I'm not really a stickler (haha) about stickers. As long as they are clean and printed out and cut correctly, I'm happy. :D

I own a lot of kawaii stickers bought from eBay. I know more than likely they (or some of them at least) are fake and are not the actual brand, but they work for me! :D

As long as you don't pass your stickers for the actual thing, then I'll be happy with them too. :D

I love stationary. Paper and envelopes that match to write on, or pretty notecards that are blank inside.

Pets

I love all animals! That includes domesticated fuzzballs (cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats/mice) to wild ones. Even turtles, lizards, snakes, and fish. Ooh! Especially sea turtles! :D

I own two dogs.

Alt text

One is a chihuahua mix named Teo and he is 12 years old. His birthday was just here (02/24). He is a chunky monkey of a dog and used to belong to my momma until her death.

Alt text

My second is a terrier mix named Hercules. I got him as a rescue in a no-kill shelter. He's 6 years old. He'll be 7 in August.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music!

I mostly listen to Christian/Positive music. I love Toby Mac, Capital Kings, Newsboys, Matthew West, Family Force 5, Royal Tailor, The Afters.

I love the oldies too. The Beatles, CCR, The Bee Gees, The Hollies

I love the 80s too! Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pat Benetar, Bobby Brown, Rick Springfield

Favorite Books

The Harry Potter series; The Twilight series; The Host; She Who Remembers;

I love a bunch of fanfiction too from different fandoms (Harry Potter, Supernatural; Inception; Twilight). If you love fanfiction as much as I do, then by all means recommend me your favorites!

Favorite Movies

Inception; Lego Movie; The Muppets (2011); The DaVinci Code; The Monster Squad; Silence of the Lambs; Easy A; Transformers 1-4; Shaun of the Dead; The Labyrinth; The Princess Bride; Vice Versa; Star Wars; Spaceballs; Starman; 50 First Dates; The Wedding Singer;

Disney Movies: Aladdin, Finding Nemo, Beauty and the Beast, the Lion King, Chicken Little, Cars, Cars 2, Big Hero 6, the Little Mermaid, Monsters Inc., Monsters University, Alice in Wonderland (the one with Johnny Depp in it), The Parent Trap (the original 1961 version), The Shaggy Dog, A Goofy Movie

Favorite Television
