My name is Amanda and I live in Atlanta, but I'm originally from Chicago. I moved to Chattanooga, TN, when I was 11, and spent 10 years trying to find a way out.
I left swap-bot for awhile but I want to get back into it! Yay.
I'm a huge fan of autosport, but only the classy kinds like Formula 1 and Le Mans. If I won the lottery, I'd go on a Grand Prix World Tour in which I will eat my way through every country...oh yeah, and watch races. I also like hockey, and I love the Montreal Canadiens. I love international hockey too, especially Teams Russia, Finland, and Canada. When you're watching hockey with them all combined, it's so hard to just go with one country haha.
I am very much into tea but I don't really do tea bags anymore so that kind of prevents me from a lot of swaps on here, wah. I love my loose leaf.
Other things I like: knitting, baking and cooking, chocolate, shiny silver objects, cocktail recipes (for some reason I like to have them...and not use them) There is not much I don't like, other than red onions but I don't think anyone will be sending me those. I don't really have a least favorite color either...maybe orange on occasion annoys me, but that's about it. I have found a way to be laid back about just about anything.
I used to swap things way back when I was 16, but I ended up unloading everything on whoever was kind enough to accept, and stayed out of it. I was kind of missing it. So, I'm excited to be here and get started with things for sure!
And now since I have been sending stuff: please let me know if you haven't gotten something from me. I mark stuff as sent as soon as I return from mailing it, and wouldn't just mark as sent and pretend it was sent. If you live outside the US, and it's been 2-3 weeks since I sent something, let me know, and I will gladly resend it.
I love electronic music more than anything in the world, but I listen to other stuff. Remixes of pop songs are my guilty pleasure. Favorites: Daft Punk, Danger, The Faint, Calvin Harris, A-Trak, Simian Mobile Disco, Felix Cartal, Designer Drugs, Justice, Dragonette, Tiga, David Guetta, The Bloody Beetroots, Crookers
Movies I've rated 5 stars on Netflix because otherwise this section would never end. I'm taking a Film history class and therefore I am kind of obsessive about movies.

Likes, basically things I like to get, I guess. I love anything relating to: pandas, cupcakes, tea, raspberry, pocky, Italy, Finland, Formula 1, penguins, chocolate
Stuff I don't like: doesn't exist. If you send me something I don't like, I will still find a way to enjoy it in destruction! Kidding :P
