About Me

Everyone, my apartment complex has gotten a brand new posty, and my mail has been located on the ground in the parking lot, and twice I’ve had neighbors deliver my mail to my door because they got it in their mailbox. For this reason, I may not receive my swaps. Outgoing mail hasn’t been a problem so far. If you don’t receive a rating from me, please message me and we can work something out.

Hi everyone, I'm Colleen.

I'm in my mid 20s, a wife, a step-mom, and an aunt from central Arkansas. I enjoy swimming, and used to swim about a mile every day. Now I’ve “joined the circus”.... not really but I am on a journey to become an aerialist! My apparatus of choice is the aerial sling, but I’ve been experimenting with Lyra as well.

I am now a dispatcher and part time student. Sort of...I'm not rushing myself on school at the moment. I don’t have much of an idea as far as my long term career goes. I thought I wanted to teach, so I started subbing...thank goodness I learned I didn’t like it before I got a whole degree!

I really enjoy being outdoors and in the sun. Summer is my favorite season. The sun on my skin and the occasional summer thunderstorm is lovely and great way for me to relax and feel completely in the moment. I'd be a beach bum if I could!

I love houseplants!

I have type one diabetes and am on an insulin pump, so some days are harder than others. But so far my diabetes journey has been pretty smooth.

I'm an avid reader and am always looking for book recommendations.

I’m dying to travel the world, Japan, Jeju island, yunnan province, Dublin, Greece, Israel. You name it, I wanna visit it!

Collections

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 - bookmarks - washi - Japanese themed items - Chinese themed items - anything about Haenyeo

Favorite Books

Harry Potter- JK Rowling

Winter Garden- Kristen Hannah

Shanghai Girls- Lisa See

China Doll- Lisa See

Snowflower and the Secret Fan- Lisa See

I will read just about anything but those are my favorites.

Wishlist

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.

Comment: 💙Thank you so much for not only coordinating such a fun & unique swap, but also sharing about a very personal pastime of your family! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the various prey, family “tools” of the trade, and canine companions you’ve had since childhood! My sincere condolences go out to you for the very recent loss of your Zadie. 😞 However, your letter sounds as though the joy of her and her mother will be continuing on in a new litter soon! How exciting! 😁 All in all, I’m thrilled to have “met” such a cool fellow outdoors woman here on the bot! You’re amazing! 🤩 I plan to write back soon and pick-yur-brain for a tasty rabbit recipe or two! 😋
Response: I hope you like fried foods then 😉😉😉

Comment: Thank you so much for the cute note!! I like the quote, the cute "hi" cactus and all the llamas!! It's crazy how similar our names were!! I've never been to Arkansas, but I'll put it on my list. I love nature and all the parks would be wonderful!!

Comment: Thank you so much! I have not picked an era to collect in my cup and saucer sets. I just go with "pretties." If it speaks to me, it's mine. LOL! Have a great day! Hugs, Diane

Comment: Hello fellow AC player! Thanks so much for your questions. New Horizons is my first Animal Crossing game and I'm still playing just about everyday. Not as much as I was in the beginning but I find it a very relaxing way to have a bit of an escape from the day. And I love decorating for the new seasons!

Quick and Easy Profile Hello #1

Hello, Today will be a beautiful 91 degrees in Merced California.

I've had my coffee, did some needed office work before my weekend starts. I plan on spending it on the lake in my new kayak.

How will you be spending your Saturday? I hope its filled with blue skies, cool breeze and something you enjoy. We enjoy nature and being in the middle of an empty lake.

Enjoy the little things! Elina - Neenarneenar
