About Me

Hi there! My name is Vivi and I'm 24 years old. My pronouns are she/her/them/their and I am a queer vegan programer artist and an overall a peace loving nerd that likes 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 loved this swap SO. MUCH. I especially love that you sent me art by local queer artists. I've never been to a con, but when I got this swap I that it would be really cool if we had something like Pride Con! That way we get to meet local LGBTQIA+ artists and buy their art. That would be so cool.🌈 I already put the zombie pin on one of my bags. Haha! Super looking forward to using the postcards, too. ALSO, I so loved that thing you made with the letter! If you have more of the yes queer postcard you stuck on the envelope, would love to get one! I'll write to you soon, Vivi!💌😍💖❤🌟🎈

Comment: Such a lovely swap! Beautiful mail art envie and I love the things you chose for me!! The snail/ beaver/ ladybug stickers are sooo stylish- I really dig these. And the little handcrafted embellishments that look like, maybe you made them by sticking little scraps together? They are going to be headers on the planner boxes... they fit right in there. :) Thanks!!
Response: Eep! So glad you enjoyed thus swap. Yes those are handmade embellishments. :D Some of them are stapled together so i hope they lay flat enough in your planner. <3

Comment: HI Vivi! Thanks for the lovely four teas you sent to me. I see you are newer on SwapBot, so I am offering a suggestion. When you send more than one or two teas, you need to add postage, in the form of an extra ounce stamp, so the post office will hand cancel the envelope. Otherwise, it arrives ripped up with the tea spilling out of it. Luckily, all the bags were intact for me. I'm just suggesting this for your future consideration. Best, Amy
Response: Thanks you! :)

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.
