UPDATE 9/22/2020: I am FAR behind on rating swaps - I haven't actually had the chance to open any of them. I will be going through my mail today and tomorrow and will be rating you guys as I go along! I'm so sorry for the delay. Thank you all for your understanding and patience!

UPDATED 9/9/2020

Hi everyone, and welcome to my profile. My name is Katie, I'm 26 years old (born August 5th), and I live in GA, USA. My profile is quite long and extensive, and I try my best to update it as often as necessary. I'm going to try to be more open and transparent about certain topics - I hope that it will allow for clearer communication and understanding between myself and others, especially during these difficult and trying times. Now more than ever, we need to be here for each other.

Thank you for stopping by. Much love to you.

Warning: mention about mental health/dark topics ahead.

PSA: My mental health has been wavering and I'm trying my best to stay afloat - as I know that everybody has been as of late. September and the rest of the year is also a little more difficult for me, as my dad passed on 9/10/2017 and I'm just not in a good mindset this time of year. By no means am I using my mental health as a crutch or an excuse, but merely as an explanation to the fact that I'm slow with rating swaps I've received and even slower with pen pal replies.

I had a list of those who are pending pen pal replies but I removed it because 1. I couldn't find everyone's usernames to put on the list or there's pen pals of mine that aren't on Swap-Bot and 2. it honestly made me even more anxious to see the list lol. I'm not the best pen pal because of my lack of prompt/speedy replies and this is part of why I stopped doing pen palling to begin with... it makes me feel super guilty to not be able to reply to everyone. However, I am working on sending you guys postcards/lil notes while you wait on me to reply so your mailbox is a little happier.

For those who are waiting for me to send your letter, I want you to know that your patience and understanding mean more to me than you know and more than I could say.

I appreciate every single one of you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mom and I have both had COVID-19 in April 2020 - what a crazy experience! I'm sure a lot of people have questions and may be afraid to ask them, but please, ask away! I'll answer whatever I can to the best of my ability! I would love to be able to educate the public/community about the virus and its effects, so feel free to ask anything!

I do want to reiterate that I no longer have symptoms and am safe to send mail! Also, according to several sources, there is no evidence to show that COVID-19 is spread through mail/packages - however, your best bet is to spray what you can with disinfectant and wash your hands after handling your mail! After it's put in the mail box, only lord knows where it goes and who's touched it.

Please continue to stay safe, wash your hands, and take care of yourselves - physically, mentally, and emotionally! I love you guys!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NOTE: If you have any issues with my swap whatsoever, PLEASE message me so we can resolve it before you rate down! Sometimes USPS can lose mail, especially nowadays. If the mail you receive from me doesn't meet your expectations, please talk things out with me first.

I'm 26 years old but I'm a big kid at heart! I've always been a huge geek, even when I was younger. I love Japanese culture, and am a big fan of anime, manga, and just about anything kawaii. I also really like Hello Kitty, most Sanrio characters, and just anything cute!

As of recently, I've started collecting ATCs! I have a special binder and card sleeves to go in them to collect them. ;v; I've started making them as well and I've really enjoyed it!

I don't watch a lot of television or movies, but I really enjoy watching YouTube videos (Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, etc).

I love all kinds of music, but country, rap, and metal/rock are my least favorite genres.

My favorite holidays are Christmas and Valentine's Day! I adore galaxies/space themed goodies, and rainbow themed items!

I absolutely love plants (especially succulents), but I ADORE flowers, especially in pinks and whites but I love all colors! Roses are my all-time favorite flower. Mom and I are actually planning to start a little garden with herbs and stuff! I don't have much of a green thumb but I hope I can change that! I'm currently trying to grow a carrot from the tip of another one so we'll see what happens. (Update on Mr. Carrot as of 6/18: He's starting to wilt! ;A; I'm trying to revive him as best as I can but I think it's a lost cause. Can't say I didn't try! If anyone has any suggestions/recommendations, I would love them!)

I love watching/listening to ASMR - if you don't know what this is, please look it up! It's very relaxing and soothing. Some channels are a bit... weirder than others, but I promise there are several awesome content creators out there. I definitely suggest Gentle Whispering ASMR, Tingting ASMR, The White Rabbit ASMR, Ephemeral Rift, and WhispersRed ASMR to start, they're all incredibly talented and their content is diverse so there's something for everyone!

I'm into all sorts of kawaii things, and I really, really like Hello Kitty (the 'classic' version, the fuzzy version... she's just really cute lol) and most Sanrio characters. I also LOVE Tokidoki, especially Unicornos and Mermicornos! I would love to be able to collect more figures of either of those. ;v;

I love wearing makeup, but unfortunately, I sweat so bad that I can't really wear it often. ;; I do love watching different beauty gurus and makeup reviewers! I really want the Conspiracy palette (I'm huge into Shane Dawson's conspiracy YouTube videos, please check it out if you haven't) but unfortunately it's sold out and very expensive. ;_; Definitely a wish list item lol.

I am most definitely faith based (I believe in God and Jesus) but I am not one to push this onto you if you aren't, or if you aren't comfortable with religion/religious topics. Please tell me beforehand or have this information in your profile so I don't accidentally make you uncomfortable! With this said, I'm very open to learn about other religions/walks of life (my best friend is a beginner Wiccan/Pagan), so please don't be afraid to talk about this kind of stuff with me! Though I may not understand at first, I love to learn new things so I can understand them better - I've actually researched a bit into pagan religion/practices and find it very interesting, so any more information on that would be awesome for my best friend and myself. ;v;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm open to receiving anything - I'm so blessed to be able to participate in SB so anything makes me happy! Even a simple 'hello' card makes me smile! Please don't be upset if I don't give you a heart - I love every single piece of mail I receive, no matter what it is!

I will not rate down simply for being late on sending your swap. Believe me, I totally understand that life happens and there are much more important things that go on around us than mailing something! Also, USPS can be really wonky so something may get lost, damaged, etc. I will always message you before rating down, because I want to give others the benefit of the doubt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My favorite color(s): Pastel pink; rainbow.

My favorite food: Chinese food; Taco Bell; Panda Express.

My favorite hobby: Anything art/craft related!

My favorite animal(s): Pandas and dogs, but I love all animals tbh.

Collects: Cute/kawaii stickers and stationery (!!!!); cute anime figures; Sailor Moon items; shoujo manga/manga with pretty art; unicorn/mermaid decor; Russian nesting dolls; plushes; journals/notebooks; Sailor Moon items (but especially Sailor Moon herself, Chibi Moon or Sailor Mercury items); plants - especially succulents!; postage stamps (particularly Japanese/Asian ones but I love any!); Hatsune Miku items.

Hobbies: Drawing; painting (acrylics, watercolors, oils); crafting (and I'm always looking for something new to try); watching YouTube; listening to music; playing video games (especially Animal Crossing: New Horizons which I adore); playing board games with my folks; playing PC games (Guild Wars 2, Minecraft, etc); reading.

Other likes: Kitschy, vintage items (especially Christmas and Valentine's Day things).

Dislikes: Raisins; dates; rings (can't wear them due to my job); bracelets (except for elastic ones); dark colors; spooky/scary things - there are a few exceptions to this but I don't like to be 'scared'; insects EXCEPT for caterpillars, butterflies, lady bugs, and lunar moths; mint in any form (peppermint, mint candy, minty teas/coffees, etc.); non-fiction/self-help books; satanic/anti-religious items of ANY kind (I do not agree with the practice of Satanism but I'm not one to judge for your religious beliefs so this will not stop me from swapping with you/being your pen pal friend); licorice of ANY kind.

I'll add more to this bio as I think of things, lol.

If you have any questions about me or are unsure of anything, please message me anytime!

Comment: Thank you so much! I love everything you sent. However, it rained this weekend and the swap got wet since there was no protection on the envelope or the letter set/sheets. Please keep that in mind for the future. Otherwise really love everything you sent.
