Hi! My name is Lauren, I am 29 years old and I'm from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. I'm engaged to the love of my life, Paul - I love spending time with him! I work as a video editor at a TV station. I went to university for an English degree, and attended college for a diploma in Television Broadcasting.
I love to craft and create all sorts of things, including knitting, needlework, things made out of plastic Perler beads, 1" pinback buttons, things made from Japanese Chiyogami paper, and more.
I love video games, especially retro Nintendo games. My favorite games are Super Mario Bros. games, Pac-Man, Katamari Damacy, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, Zelda, Kirby, and any older arcade games. I also love pinball.
I also love music - I play the piano and the guitar. I played the clarinet in my high school symphonic band.
I have been a vegetarian for my entire life and love cooking vegetarian cuisine and foods from around the world.
I also love to travel and hope to travel the world someday! I am learning how to speak Japanese and hope to travel to Japan someday.
I also love to do yoga, work out at the gym, and go for long walks. I love all animals, especially cats!

I love all sorts of things!
I love to collect postcards! My favorites include any card showing your hometown/city/country/area - any scenery, history, traditions, festivals, anything special about where you live! I prefer to receive a card from your home country, written and stamped from there.
I'd also love any kawaii cards from Japan, or any Nintendo-themed video game cards (especially those showing retro game characters).
