I'm a zinester. I've been writing zines since I was in high school.
I've been a bookseller for twelve years. Currently I'm a YA/Children's, Comics, and SF/F buyer.
I'm an aro/ace INFJ Neuroatypical Ravenclaw Nerdfighter XD
I love stationery and currently use three separate journals/planners (for work, gaming, daily journaling) as well as several notebooks (for zines.)
I play D&D and am currently GM-ing in an all-girl group.
I have two cats, Ollie (a calico) and Enjin (all black) - both are rescue cats.
Note: I've been on a long swap hiatus, and am excited to start swapping again now :)
I'm currently obsessed with Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen and Everybody's Talking About Jamie. (Other favourite musicals: RENT, Wicked, and Avenue Q)
I love Joy Division and The Smiths and Sarah Records' groups like Heavenly, St Christopher and The Field Mice. I love The Softies and Belle and Sebastian and Camera Obscura and Kings of Convenience. I also love Bikini Kill and Julie Ruin and Sleater-Kinney and Cibo Matto and Rancid and The Clash. Oh, and Tegan & Sara and She & Him.
Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Armstrong, and Charles Mingus. And Tsuji Ayano, and Bump of Chicken and One Ok Rock and Androp and Spitz and Suga Shikao.
And then there's Arashi. (They're a Japanese idol group, for those who don't know.) There is little I wouldn't do for Arashi.

PLEASE remember to indicate which swap your card/package is from. I've received a lot of postcards with no swap name. Sometimes I receive swaps without the swapper's name! I can't rate these swaps as I have no idea who they're from and/or which swap they're from.
I try to rate always, but if you think your swap should have reached me and I haven't rated you, please contact me. I'm on a lot of postcard swaps, and sometimes a card or two slip through without me noticing. Usually I wait a long time before rating a "1", because I know that mail could take longer than usual to arrive. I try to contact people first before giving them a "1", and appreciate it when swap partners do the same.
**mail from Malaysia can take very long to arrive.
When it comes to postcards, I like everything. I try to collect a large variety of postcards - from as many different countries, and as many different subjects. I PREFER STORE-BOUGHT POSTCARDS to handmade or ad postcards, and I prefer weathered postcards to those in envelops.
