About Me

IMPORTANT: Hi! If you have messaged me on swap-bot lately, I will get back to you! I just have a lot of messages and sometimes the messages I mean to reply to quickly get lost amongst all the others.

I am slowly making my way through rating everyone! If I haven't rated you yet, I either have yet to receive your swap or it's in my "to be rated section of mail" (as I get a lot of mail, outside of swap-bot as well; and I do have my studies too)...so, please be patient with me.

I'm currently a University and TAFE Student studying a double degree at ACU as well as a course in library and information services.

I'm an avid reader and writer (and yet I still have no idea what to say).

I have two gorgeous doggies, they're both very excitable and love going for walks!

When it comes to hobbies, I love to give different things a go, so at the moment I'm very much an amateur cook and baker; I love walking, hiking, cycling and tons of other things, too.

I've learnt a few languages here and there; French (being the one I'm most familiar with), a little Dutch and German. I'm still learning, but if you have any unique sayings in your native tongue (in any other langues than just those mentioned above), I'd love to know!

I'd love to have some more penpals from around the world! So, if you think we'd get along or have some things in common, send me a message!

Favourite Books

My being a bookworm and all means I might have a few favourite books (although it's hard to choose...and they tend to change every couple of months).

  • Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
  • The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf
  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  • When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
  • Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
  • Chemistry by Weike Wang

Favourite TV Shows

I love a lot of TV shows! Though I haven't seen a few for a while - I've been more focused on studies. Here are some of my faves:

  • Doctor Who
  • Outlander
  • Sailor Moon
  • Orphan Black
  • Jane The Virgin
  • Stranger Things
  • Anne with an 'E'
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  • The Umbrella Academy
  • Charmed (the original version)
  • The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
  • She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
  • Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

(and a notable mention would have to be "Round The Twist" which is basically an aussie tv show I watched as a kid and it is ICONIC)

Favourite Music

There are so many types of music I love; here are some of my favourite bands/musicians:

  • Lorde
  • Hozier
  • Meg Mac
  • Paramore
  • The Killers
  • St. Vincent
  • Amy Shark
  • King Princess
  • Glass Animals
  • Janelle MonΓ‘e
  • The Cranberries
  • Panic! At The Disco
  • Florence + The Machine

(and there are so many others that I just adore, but I'll keep the list this long.)

Note

A lot of the time post to and from Australia does tend to take a while, so allow over a month for a swap of mine to get to you.

However, if you don't receive a swap within that timeframe, message me and I'll resend.

Postcards

I thought I might add a postcard section!

I tend to love any postcards I receive, so send any you have my way.

However, I do tend to love these types of postcards if you wanted to send something specific:

  • artsy, vintage, painting, etc
  • doctor who, space-themed
  • snugglepot and cuddle pie (aussie classic literature or any classic (kids) literature from any country)
  • botanical, plants, food, etc
  • virginia woolf, sylvia plath, classic female writers
  • bookish themed (eg, covers, characters, etc)
  • dogs, puppies, cows, foxes, owls, wallabies, wombats, kangaroos, dolphins, bats, etc.
  • recipe themed (I don't eat meat, so I would prefer recipes without meat, however I would never rate down if you were to send me a recipe with meat in it)
  • puzzles
  • forest, wilderness, nature
  • seasonal postcards: halloween, christmas, easter, autumn, etc

But honestly, I do love any postcards I receive! So, send whatever you prefer, I don't mind!

Favourite Films

I don't know if I necessarily have "favourite" movies, but here are some that I really love:

  • Studio Ghibli Films
  • MirrorMask
  • The Incredibles
  • Lilo & Stitch
  • Captain Marvel
  • Hidden Figures
  • Moana
  • Treasure Planet
  • The Matrix
  • George of the Jungle

There are a few others that I can't think of at the moment, but those are just some of the movies I love!

2019 Profile Hello #8

We have a lot in common in terms of TV shows. I loved the last season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I just finished watching Lucifer. I'm debating whether or not to start the new Charmed series.
