About Me

Hi there! My name is Selena, and I'm a independent filmmaker and professional camera assistant in the film industry. On my time off (when I have it haha) I am obsessed with getting back into my hobbies, travelling, camping, roadtripping, anything that will get me out into the world!

I'm a lover of films, books, shows, theatre, video games, board games, journalling, letter writing, collage art, scrapbooking, and writing amongst other things!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of my work (12-18 hours a day, sometimes working 6 or 7 day weeks for 1-8 months at a time depending on the film/series) I am unable to do swaps on a regular basis.

HOWEVER if I join a swap I will definitely send it before the deadline — if I'm joining a swap that means I have the time to do it. So if you don’t get your letter/package from me PLEASE MESSAGE ME FIRST before rating and I will make plans to resend/send compensation.

Favorite Books

I really need to take a good look at my library and make a list of books that I have, but I find that I enjoy most well written books that I can learn something from that isn't discriminatory towards any group or preaching a religion. However, 9 times out of 10 I will choose a stand-alone book over a series, I need an ending that is within reach! Series that go on forever bother me because no matter what I need the security of a conclusion. I will not say no to a series, but I am more weary of them (especially if they go over a trilogy and the series isn't completely out yet!)

Guilty loves? Mystery/Crime/Thriller. Commitment loves? Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Slowly getting into? Non-Fiction life stories and/or city tales. Picky but I love the format? Graphic Novels! My ultimate I-don't-care-I'll-enjoy-it-somehow? INTERACTIVE BOOKS!

You can also check out my goodreads account for my recent reads! I haven't put up my entire collection on there yet though.

My No-No's

Don't have many! I don't have any allergies, and there isn't much that I wouldn't appreciate. However, I must state that I will not accept anything that:

  • is discriminatory against a group or a person based on race/sex/orientation/religion/diet.
  • is preaching any religion
  • is graphic pornography. Artistic nudity is OK.

I also have some things that I won't necessarily be bothered if I get, but I would just prefer not to since I won't put them to any use (they'll get given away/donated)

  • Earrings or jewellery in general that isn’t necklaces, my ears aren’t pierced and I don’t wear rings / bracelets.
  • 3D/Puffy stickers
  • Loose Glitter
  • Sports things/theme
  • Wedding stuff/theme
  • Baby stuff/theme

Comment: Thank you. I looked at this book on Amazon the day before I got your letter! reminds me of Neil Gaimon, or Bron. Will have to add it to the list.
Response: What a coincidence! I haven't finished it yet but I'm really liking it so far :) Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors for sure so it's nice reading something similar.

Comment: Thanks a lot for your card!
Response: No problem :)
Comment: Selena, thank you for the 20's postcard. I love the way they used to dress then. My home is more like a gift shop right now. I have to start downsizing soon. Just don't know where to start. Collecting will just creep up on you and then you will say "Where did all this come from?" Shirley
Response: No worries, I’m so glad you liked it! Haha, understandable. Best of luck throughout the new year! Take care :)

Response: Stanley Park is amazing, I take it for granted a lot to have such a dense forest in a city. Hope you get to visit sometime!

bblue rated for Surprise Me ~ CANADA on Jan 4, 2018
Comment: This was really great! It was so much fun to open the envelope contraption you made (with the one envelope for a letter and the other for "goodies".) I will have to try and make one of those at some point.
Response: I’m glad it worked out and that you liked it! It was my first time trying that technique, I found the inspiration for it on Pinterest originally.
