I had to take a long break, but Im back and ready to rumble!!!
Just a little intro about me, I'm not great at this but I'll try. My name is Colleen, I'm 20 years old, and I live with my boyfriend and little hedgehog in a modest apartment in Arkansas, USA. I have type one diabetes, so each day is a little of a struggle, but it makes me appreciate all my little victories even more! I'd like to think I'm quite open minded and open hearted. I love learning about other cultures, religions, traditions, things of that nature. I prefer to be in a country setting, where you can see the stars and hear the birds like back home with my parents, but for now I live in the city. Exploration is one of my passions! I often find myself wishing to be a born in the Lewis and Clark days. But then I remember Taco Bell didn't exist then and come back to my senses ;) I have two beagles at my parents, Charlie and Sammy. Sammy mostly keeps to himself and stays out of trouble, but Charlie is always in my business...unless he's somewhere getting in trouble! I'm always in search of new pen-pals who are looking for a long term friend! I prefer long letters where real subjects are discussed, not just little notes. Just ask :)
I'm somewhat of a collector..and by collector, I mean getting a little of everything post-related and stacking them in disorganized piles. Those piles include - foreign currency - postage stamps (new or used) - sea shells - postcards - matryoshka - buddhist/zen related items
Some of my favorites are the Harry Potter Series (favorite is an understatement), The Hunger Games series, The Raft, Miss Peregrines Peculiar Children, Poetry of Pablo Neruda, The Bell Jar, Impluse, Crank, Burned, Glass, The Maze Runner series, Deep Blue, and the list goes on. I'm always up for book suggestions!!
Some things I'd love to receive are of course, anything in my collections list, teas, anything hedgehog themed, Japanese things, middle eastern trinkets, and of course anything pretty! :) I also love candy! Preferable chewy, sour things!
Specifically, I LOVE to receive photos that you yourself have taken, or have around the house from various times. Something about them makes me feel connected to the time and the place where they were captured. I just find them to be very personal.
Harry Potter Series, Studio Ghibli films, Hercules, Aladdin, Finding Nemo, The Sword and Stone, The Little Mermaid, anything Disney. Some super hero, such as Captain America and the occasional BatMan. HOT ROD!
I don't really like cats, unless its the animated "kawaii" kind. Simply because I'm terribly allergic :( I'm pretty easy to please other than that!
