About Me

Broke college Student. Lover of all things sea related, but can't keep a fish alive for anything. Obsessive. Worrier. Christmas card addict. Firm believer that you're never too old to blow bubbles in your chocolate milk.

I'm a music addict who'll listen to just about anything, but loves swing, slinky jazz, blues, and oldies best. I've moved an average of every two years since I was born. I wouldn't take any of it back.

I love Winnie the Pooh and Dr. Suess and classic Disney (it's just not what it used to be, let's face it). I love books, and writing stories and letters and connecting with people I might never meet were it not through the mail. I have social anxiety disorder, which has been pretty bad in the past (though I'm getting past it now), and it's been things like hearing from penpals that have helped get me through.

I like the strange places life takes you and the people you meet on the way.

I think when you overcome a problem and realize you've made it through, it's your duty to pass that on to someone else who needs it.

I am owned by one cat, named Kitty. She's smooshy, hairy and is a complete glutton for attention. I think she may be trying to kill me - she likes to sleep on my face.

I'm studying to be a master herbalist through the School of Natural Health out of Utah and plan to start into a nutrition program next year.

I'm not sure where I'm going or what I'm going to do, but lately I'm obsessing with the psychology and sociology books in the mother lady's library, so I shall probably study psychology at some point!

Currently September 9, 2010

Hey, guys, I know I've been awful at keeping up with rating swaps and the like! I'm still here and alive, I swear! Life has just been unusually stressful as of late. I'm getting active again on swapbot, however, even if it's only in the e-swaps. (my ability to keep up with postage costs is getting a little iffy XP )

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  • Old movies, like Casablanca and the Big Sleep (I'm a Bogart/Bacall fan)

  • all things classic and vintage

  • classic Disney, like Robin Hood and Winnie the Pooh

  • Dr. Suess

  • Yoga and health foods

  • Star Trek

  • Kitties!

  • KEYCHAINS! :3

  • Buttons (or pins.... XD whichever you prefer to call them.... I always call them buttons for some reason....!)

  • Bruce Campbell

  • Lists!

  • The blues

  • Mix CDs

  • Handbags

  • Anime/Manga/Kawaii goodness!

  • charms and charm bracelets

  • lockets

  • scarves

Dislikes

  • Olives (I'm pretty easy going.... XD )

Swapping

SWAPPING LOVE

KEYCHAINS! I love keychains! I never buy them from the stores because they always seem mundane and boring when it's somewhere local, but getting them from a pal is the best thing in the world! I am a tea drinker, but I only drink herbal teas, no black or white teas and no mixes of the two!

Postcards, letters, journals, stickers, christmas cards - holy crap, my cat is attacking my shoe o.O no wonder it's covered in cat hair - photos, buttons - and by buttons, I mean those fun pins that have sayings on them, like "I know you are, but what am I?" and "It's been lovely, but I have to SCREAM now."

STUFF I SWAP/CAN SWAP

Homemade postcards, Christmas cards, buttons (again, I mean pins... I should just start saying THAT instead of buttons -.-'')... I tend to pick up stuff for swaps as I go. I love swapping lists and letters, too!

I love Maggie Shayne's Twilight series, S. Meyer's Twilight series, crappy teen novels. I LOVE the Harlequin Flipside series intensely.

Hello! I don't want to pester you or anything, just wanted to say that I hope you got the letter I sent you from the Penpal Letter Tag on the forums. (It was in a handmade envelope made out of sheet music.) If not, please let me know and I'll resend. :)
