Jan 31, 2020: Regarding swaps!

This may come off as petty on my behalf, and I apologise, but it's personal to me.
Before you send a swap, please double check that my name is spelled correctly. It's demoralizing to see my name misspelled and brings back unpleasant memories.
I realize it may not be a serious offense to many, but it causes conflicting emotions and puts me in a bad headspace. Thank you for understanding ♡

Jan 6, 2020; Classes started again!

With classes in full swing, I visit the Post Office every Friday after clinical to collect mail, so my ratings get done Friday night. (•◡•)

Jan 1, 2020; I wish you all the best for the start of the new decade!

Synopsis

Hey, there. I'm Adriana and still finding my footing in life. I'm 25, and I'm a renown book hoarder and animal lover.

I live in the beautifully temperamental state of Florida, where it goes from blazing hot to pouring rain in .03 seconds.

I'm currently a nursing student (after many changes in career and educational paths). Took me quite the ride to finally figure out where I wanted to go in life. However, the ultimate fantasy is to live in the mountains, dedicating my life to rescuing and taking care of animals in need, while filling the walls of my home with books and art.

I'm the proud fur-mom of a pit-bull and two kitties. These goofballs are a handful, but I love them more than words can honestly describe, and I can't imagine a life without the rambunctious trio.

If I'm not being a lazy potato, I'm out hiking with my pup, writing to one of my pen-pals, re-watching one of my favorite movies, reading a book, or doing some form of craft.

Books

I love books, and I love hoarding them.

I don't have a solitary favorite book. If I attempted to mention favorite books, I could write for hours. As a general rule, fantasy novels, Beauty and the Beast retellings, or anything that stands out in a significant way can be automatically considered one of my favorite books.

I've read numerous books, and there are only a handful that I haven't loved dearly.

Books I Recommend:

The Oddfits by Tiffany Tsao

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Note: I realize I'm a textbook definition of a bibliophile, and a go to gift would be a bookmark, but I'm well stocked, so I have no need for more ♥

Music

I have an eclectic taste in music, and the genres I listen to are vast. I don't necessarily have any go-to artists, since my musical favorites change like the phases of the moon.

If you're curious and would like a glimpse, these are my current Top 5 songs as of January 2020:

• Fool by Cavetown

• Nights by Frank Ocean

• Bubble Tea by Dark Cat

• Callaita by Bad Bunny

• Boasty ft. Edris Elba by Wiley, Sean Paul, Stefflon Don

Shows

If it weren't for Hulu and Netflix I'd be so far behind on shows.

Shows that I keep up with and/or adore are:

• Avatar: The Last Airbender

• The Handmaid's Tale

• Hilda

• Steven Universe

• Bob's Burgers

• Attack on Titan

• Rick and Morty

• The Witcher

• One Punch Man

• Brooklyn Nine Nine

• The Boys

I feel like I may be forgetting a few, but those are what came to the top of my head.

Movies

I'm unashamed to admit that I absolutely adore animated films, and will probably continue to adore them until the Earth is no more.

A condensed list of films I've thoroughly enjoyed and consider my favorites:

♦  Mulan

♦  Howl's Moving Castle

♦  Underworld Series

♦  Insidious Series

♦  Spirited Away

♦  Pride & Prejudice

♦  Aristocats

♦  Amélie

♦  Harry Potter Series

♦  Shrek

Random Facts

♥ My favorite numbers are 5, 9, and 12.

♥ Bats are my favorite animal.

♥ Halloween is my favorite holiday.

♥ I'm bilingual.

♥ I've hiked to the top of a volcano.

♥ I'm afraid of spiders, and opaque water.

♥ ENFP. But I consider myself an ambivert.

♥ I have 8 tattoos.

Gift Ideas

I enjoy and would always appreciate more:

•Postcards: Artistic. Animals. Literary. Nature. etc.

• Stationery: Washi tape. Handmade envelopes. Decorated paper. etc.

• Random: Maps. Artistic prints. etc.

• Anything strange and/or unique.

(By no means is this a restrictive list; it's just to help anyone who may be at a loss on ideas ♥)

I'm not too fond of, or already have enough:

• Tea

• Bookmarks

Comment: I live a few miles from a dairy and I've taken their tour twice. I admit to getting teary eyed when it comes to visiting the calves, so I feel you! They have the best chocolate milk in the world, and it's such a joy to sip some while visiting all the animals.
