About Me

Updated 4th October, 2010.

Have been quite absent lately. Sorry. I'm behind on everything, not only here on swap-bot. Packed up for my move with my boyfriend only to find out that the landlord had decided not to let me move with him ONE day before I would do so. Nice? Not. So now I'm unpacking into my parents' again and quite bummed and pissed, honestly. That made my anxiety and depression trigger again so I am now trying to take everything easy but never mind, if I owe you a swap, be sure you will get it. Sorry for being absent!

This year I will be working less hours, seems like the financial crises is affecting private English classes too. This means, less money, so I will have to cut out my swaps.

I'm often absent during the weekends as I usually spend those at my boyfriend's place. So please bear with me, I may take a bit longer to reply than usual. Thanks!

what I pledged

Please notice that I send from Spain. This may mean you get my package a bit later than usual if you are overseas. Some packages I have sent have arrived in 1 week, others in 1 month. Nothing I can do about that. Thanks for understanding.

I AM NOT A FLAKER. PLEASE MESSAGE ME IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED SOMETHING BEFORE YOU RATE, I WILL GLADLY RESEND. THE SAME APPLIES FOR TAGS AND GAMES.

ALSO, I ALWAYS RATE AS SOON AS I RECEIVE. PLEASE BE FAIR AND RATE TOO!

I'm 27, Spanish, an English teacher. I love nature, collecting stuff, reading all kinds of books, watching movies, listening to music...

I live with my family in the North-East of Spain. We have quite a few pets: 2 dogs, 4 fishes, 3 birds... I absolutelly LOVE animals! Also I have a wonderful boyfriend, we've been together for ages.

I am not the typical girl. I hate going shopping just because (but I love to do it at my own rhythm -fast- and with a good friend), gossiping, and romantic movies in general (unless the movie has a good script). And you probably will have a hard time to see me with high heels, skirts or make up (unless it's black make up!).

My favourite colours are green and purple. I also like yellow,red and orange. LOL, I like most colours! And the combination of purple and yellow makes me go all smiley! Not one that I really dislike as I think they all have their meaning...

I am fascinated by everything oriental and specially Japanese. I am a big fan of anime, manga, geishas, kawaii and Nintendo for the geek in me!!!... ^.^

I LOVE everything handmade! ATCs, bookmarks, altered journals, pendants, jewelry, dotees... I just love the unique feeling in each one of them!

My sizes: T-shirt - S, Socks - European 35 - 36, Panties - S, Rings - 5 or 6 (depending on what finger I wear them on).

Favorite Music

Depeche Mode are my favourite band. I simply love all their albums. But my tastes are quite eclectic really. I like eighties pop, rock, hard rock, classical music, balads... I only dislike country and hip hop, and hardcore techno!

Some of my favourite groups and singers: DEPECHE MODE, Queen, Moby, Nightwish, Pet Shop Boys, Iron Maiden, Madonna, HIM, ABBA, Björk, Duran Duran, Mika and many others. I listen to different things depending on my mood.

Favorite Books

This can be a long list...

  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (she's my big inspiration).

  • Heroes and Villains by Angela Carter.

  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

  • Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. I adore Jasper!

  • The Lord of the Rings by J. R. Tolkien. Simply epic. I love it!

I also like comics, chic-lit (M. Keyes is so funny!), historic novels... I read anything I get my hands on, basically!

Let's watch something...

I love watching anime, nature and science docummentaries and watching my boyfriend play video games (weird, I know).

Some of my favourite TV series are:

  • House MD

  • Lost

  • Heroes

  • The Big Bang Theory

  • The IT Crowd

  • Dexter

And some of my favourite movies are:

  • Totoro, Spirited Away or any other Miyazaki movies.

  • Amelie.

  • Bringing up baby.

  • Blade Runner.

  • Aliens.

  • Any by Monty Python.

I like...

  • ATCs.

  • Personalized things.

  • Purples and greens.

  • Handmade things.

  • Second hand.

  • Etsy.

  • Kawaii.

  • Owls.

  • Squirrels.

  • Japanese candy or crafts.

  • Frogs.

  • Geeky things.

  • Retro.

  • Altered journals.

  • My dog.

  • Sylvia Plath.

  • Nintendo.

  • Harry Potter & Twilight.

  • Reading and bookmarks.

I don't like...

  • Badly treated things.

  • ATCs that are only a picture or sticker on cardboard.

  • Barbies, baby blue, pastel pink or girly things in general.

  • Things that smell of smoke.

  • Animal tested products.

About my swaps.

I like to send long before the deadline whenever it's possible.

Also, I'm usually open to private swaps, so don't be shy and PM me. =)

I am going back and tracking the origins and destinations of my swaps. WE did a mermaid ATC swap back in '10. If you don't mind, could you share your city in Spain? Thanks so much.
