"Last online: June 25, 2013" untill yesterday oh wow. o_____O My getting-back-to-business-09/12 didn't go too well since life happened to happen RIGHT at that time and not in a very good way. Now I need some inspiration and a way to be more active in the arts and crafts I've enjoyed so much, and Swap-bot is the perfect place for that. Trying to start in a very slow and small scale way (NOTE TO SELF GAHH) again.(Jan.15.2017)
I've been quite absent form Swap-bot for about a year, but now it feels like getting back to business. :) (september 2012)
i pledge to rate and recycle packages/ packing materials.
i tend to be the swapper who sends on the very deadline day, and sometimes i've been a couple of days late (i try to PM my partners about it on time). But I'm not a flaker and not planning on becoming one; I'm just often a bit slow with my stuff. this applies to maaany things in my life, not just swaps and mail; time management is not my forte and i've always been the deadline girl.
the hearts are weird. please don't send me "extras" just in the hope of a heart; i try to give hearts by the feeling i get from the swap itself. If you genuinely want to send me something extra, it's fine (i love ephemera and knick-knacks he), but you shouldn't feel offended if i don't give a heart anyway. I think leaving a comment is a better way of telling what you think about the swap. so hearts, for me, ARE the extras, not FOR the extras.
I've been swapping (mainly decos) for years and i'm also in postcrossing and sendsomething.net.
I'm 33 years old multicellular organism from Finland.
I study biomedical laboratory science, only part time at the moment though, since my long-term partner, the clinical depression, is acting out again and I'm trying to get it back in control.
I used to work in an after-school club for 1st and 2nd graders, so my days consisted of lots of noise, stress, dumb jokes and messing around. I dig kids but I won't be having any of my own; the role of a part-time educator suits me better. ;)
intersectional feminist. pro-choice. agnostic.
I'm open-minded, sarcastic and laugh at stupid jokes. puns, SELF-irony and oh those good ol' poo and fart jokes.. I'm not easily offended and enjoy many things some might find a bit obscene or bizarre (but also respect the beliefs and views of others, so don't worry).
plus i'm a dork for often not using capital letters as i write on computer. too lazy for that, sorry.
i love nature and all kinds of animals. i have an especially soft spot for insects, molluscs and other creepy crawlies!
I have Madagascar hissing cockroaches and I used to have 5 african land snails as pets, they were adorable and interesting, believe me. I've also had a praying mantis, indian stick insects and field crickets. i'd LOVE to have a giant millipede one day. i'm dreaming of an aquarium with apple snails. and triops!
two kitties from local animal rescue shelter live with me too.

@Lawless in ODD little monster stuffie - I sent a PM to her on Oct 16, 2010 and left a 1 rating a week later. ("She has marked sent on Aug 7th, but I never received anything. She's been online last time Aug 9th, so no answer to my PM. I'll re-rate if I ever receive anything.") Now, Nov. 9, she has deleted her whole profile.. oh well.
