October 2017: Yikes. How do I make up for my past swapping fails? Where do I even begin? Do I contact folks? Do I RAK or angel for the next er, few years? Someone let me know :/

Swapped years ago. Last time was on here, was 6 years ago (2008). 0_0

And I own that I flaked like whoa. deep breath No excuses (partially because I don't remember what happened to made me drop off swapping earth, but mostly because there is no excuse great enough to just ditch). And I'm trying to make up for those. All of them have been contacted (by Jan 6, 2014, but I forgot to put the date on some of the repsonses to the ratings), some have responded, several were mailed January 16, 2014 and January 17, 2014.

.February 26, 2014,
Bad week last week. Stress from finances, my forgetting to take my fluoxetine, can't go to clinic until May so will run out anyway, and feb 22, 2002 was when my dad died, so every year, I try to forget how bad it gets for me and mom, but this year especially was bad.
I'll send out swaps I owe by Saturday. Please, Please, Please rate me a 3. I've disappointed myself and, pretty sure, this community. And I'm embarrassed and guilty about it, so it's kinda triggery at the moment.

Hope everyone's February was better than mine.

.January 31, 2014. I got my old job at Netflix back! Because my boss was (therefore IS) legit the best boss EVER, and never wanted to lay me off to begin with, but it made sense budget-wise. And now I have an opportunity to do my exact old job for 1.50 more an hour! I AM STOKED! This was my first week back, and it's like I took an 8 month vacation LOL. And luckily I didn't forget all that much! Woot!


My name is Bonster (well, Bonnie, but I go by Bonster and have since college when I got the nickname). I'm 32, and I live in Oklahoma. I live with my momma, who had a stroke in 09. It's currently sometimes a rough ride (like when mom got arrested last year... ikr, she's 62 and it's like she's a rebellious teen lol), but I'm in a pretty good emotional place at the moment.

I'm not flat-out diagnosed as having Depression, but I do take the generic form of Prozac every day, the max level a general practitioner can prescribe. It keeps me on an even keel, and honestly, if anyone ever feels like talking about their own issues, I'm a good listener, and I know how important it is sometimes just to vent. So feel free to message me if you need.

I have two dogs, 5 year old Marly (a mutt) and 4 year old Blueberry (a jack russell). I love them ridiculous amounts. They're my babies.


I mostly spend time on the internet. I'm involved in land comms on livejournal. Land communities are simply places for fans of something to gather and do challenges (puzzles, graphics, writing, et cetera) and earn points for a team, but to mostly have fun. I participate in hogwarts is home (RAH RAH RAVENCLAW), beacon hills (YAY TEEN WOLF), and Universe The (multi-fandom, and I'm team AIR).

I'm bisexual (after years of going 'oh no, i have to choose one way', and dealing with internalized biphobia. I'm about a 4/4.5 on the Kinsey scale, as I do prefer women, but the amount of celeb boy crushes so overweighed fully identifying as lesbian lol), feminist (the gender binary rather irritates me as i think as a human you can like/gravitate toward whatever you want as long as you don't hurt/harm someone non-consensually, whether it's traditional or non-traditional), pro-choice, and I have no religion, but I'm spiritual in the way that I think the universe and life is, at heart, balanced/works at balancing.

Comment: This was one of my 1st swaps. I was super excited for it and packaged mine up and ran up to the post office. I waited a long time for my package to arrive. I even sent a PM. I still haven't heard or seen a thing. Guess I won't do private swaps. Deadline was FEB, this is MARCH 19 --- about 1 month. I really hope it doesn't mess up my score also!
Comment: Will change when I receive.
Comment: Thanks for the great Indiana postcards.
