About Me

It's a pleasure to meet you. My name is Vivi and my pronouns are she/her. I am a queer vegan programer artist and an overall a peace loving nerd that loves sci fi. Hahah!

I have been pen paling for a few years now but have mostly been active on facebook pen pal groups. However, I am looking to do more swapping so I am quite excited to be here on swap bot.

Some things I enjoy are tea, photography, stationery, walks in nature, and playing my ukulele. Recently, I have been learning Swedish and I really love it! I live with my partner and husky in the rainy city of Seattle, WA in the United States.

Being a vegan and this is a very import part of my life as I care deeply about animals, the environment, sustainability, health, and living a life of peace and love.

I love to read, journal, plan, pen pal, listen to podcasts, and program. Currently, I am a University Student in my city and I am working hard on getting a degree in computer science and I hope to make video games in the forests of Scandinavia one day.

Favorite Books

I love anything sci fi! Some of my favorite books are The Dispossessed, Stranger in the Strange Land, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, The Three Body Problem, Snow Crash, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy , Ready Player One, and omg I could go on for days.

Some other books I like are the Harry Potter series, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass, The Little Prince, His Dark Materials, and Coraline.

I am also really into comic books! Anything by Moebius is great and I am currently in love with Saga.

Favorite Movies

Of course I love many of the movies made from my favorite books. I would say some of my favorite films that aren't from my fav books are Blade Runner 2049, anything by Studio Ghibli, Delicatessen, Paprika, The Shape of Water, and Akira.

Favorite Television

I love Dr. Who, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, High Maintenance, Black Mirror, Stranger Things, The Office, Arrested Development, X- Files, American Gods, and Ru Paul's Drag Race.

Favorite Crafts

I love painting, journaling, soap carving, stamp carving, sculpting, and photography.

Likes

  • Anything stationery related
  • Washi
  • Tea (No preference! I like all teas.)
  • Something in another language
  • Maps
  • Vegan sweets and treats
  • Stickers
  • Anything Magical
  • My favorite colors: Black, blue, and anything pastel.

I would dislike receiving

  • teacher reward stickers
  • anything hate related (e.g. Anti LGBT+, racist, sexist, ect.)
  • leather
  • silk
  • wool
  • foods or drinks that are not vegan

Swapping

I normally send out my swaps early. Please PM me if you have not received a swap from me on time before you rate. I will never flake. Sending and creating mail is one of my favorite things to do. I worry a lot about my swaps and if they make it to their destination safely.

If I do a swap with you I would love any feedback you have to give. :D It helps me improve my swaps!

Also, I am not stingy with my hearts when it comes to rating. I try to spread positivity in the world and hearts for me is just another way of doing that. Normally if I don't give a heart it is because I received a swap that felt very transactional and was lacking feeling or effort.

Comment: I'm guessing - "something orange" (bird playing card), "something harvest related" (apple band-aids), "blank recipe card" and "tea bag", plus extras? Thank you so much! The tea especially looks like exactly something I'd love to try.

Profile quote #7

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.

"Society teaches us that having feelings and crying is bad and wrong. Well, that's baloney because grief isn't wrong. There's such a thing as good grief. Just ask Charlie Brown." — Michael Scott, The Office
