Hiya. I'm Neea, I'm 29 years old and I'm from Finland. I currently work part time as an after school club leader for 7-8 year olds, and I live in a small town near Helsinki with my 8-year-old Shetland Sheepdog. His name is Waldo and he's the cutest and floofiest in all the land and I love him lots. ♡♡♡
My hobbies are drawing and painting, all kinds of crafts (from cardmaking and snail mail letters and postcards to woodworking and pottery), reading, writing, enjoying nature, traveling abroad and learning about different cultures and learning languages. I'm currently learning Latvian, Estonian and Korean, and I speak a handful of other languages (some more, some less). I'm also a long time kpop fan (one of the sensible ones, because I don't have the time nor the energy to be insanely obsessed lol).
I'm currently in the process of writing a prehistoric lesbian fantasy novel, and at this rate it will be approximately five hundred years before it's finished, because I tend to procrastinate by drawing maps and people and landscapes from the story... :D
I'm an information sponge so I read mostly non-fiction. I like to read about various topics, and lately I've read biographies of contemporary and historical women and female viewpoints of historical events. I also read a lot of DIY books, even if I'm not particularly interested in making the thing myself. I just like to know how things work. (Which is also why I watch youtube tutorials about the strangest of things, just to know how things are made.)
My favourite novels... I never know how to answer this question. I must say I do love Jane Austen a lot. There's just something about Pride And Prejudice that makes me want to read it over and over and over again. (The Keira Knightley movie and the 1995 mini series are also fab.)
The last book I read was Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda and it was so cute that I wanted to cry, omg.
Maurice by E. M. Forster is also great. Basically any gay romance with a happy ending will do. Feel free to recommend me some. :P
I like making things that I can use. I made a ton of wooden spoons and other kitchen tools in a women's woodworking class, and all kinds of jars and things in a pottery class a few years ago. I always like to try new things, even if I don't end up loving it. Lately I've been thinking about trying paper making and then using that home made paper in various crafts.
I always make birthday and holiday cards myself, and often my gifts to others are also something I've made myself. Sometimes it's something I made in woodworking class, sometimes it's paintings or fan art of their favourite characters.
Recently I've started practicing digital art on a drawing tablet, and I'm slowly getting used to it. It definitely has its advantages compared to traditional art!
I'm interested in learning embroidery and other needle-and-thread things (so far I only know how to fix minor things, like replacing missing buttons, sewing patches on clothes and the like). Maybe I'll finally learn how to knit one day.
Just like in my "Favourite crafts" above, I like things that I can use. Craft supplies are always welcome, as are bags of tea and candy and anything that has a purpose other than being a decorative item that collects dust while sitting in a shelf.
I love pastel colours (especially violet, pink, mint and blue), glitter and anything holo. :D
I would like to receive things related to the following:
SNAIL MAIL AND ART STUFF
~AESTHETIC~ JUNK (lmao idk)
RANDOM CUTE STUFF
TEA, CANDY ETC
People who don't spell check their shit, especially when they're writing and/or typing names and addresses on international mail. ಠ_ಠ
I have no allergies, but I don't eat dairy and I really dislike passion fruit flavored things and sour candies.
I don't dig handmade things that look like they came straight out of a "all in one" craft kit.
Bullet journal stuff. For something that's supposed to be ~creative~ and ~unique~ and ~inspiring~ or whatever it's really just mind numbingly repetitive, formulaic and boring. It's like everyone watched the same five bullet journal spread tutorials on youtube and then repeated them ad nauseam. You can send me weekday/month/calendar stickers and other bullet journal-y things, but I will most likely regift them.
Yellow, orange and green unless they're pastel.
Halloween. Pumpkins. Horror.
Those mustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. Same with mason jars, pineapples, cupcakes, flamingoes, unicorns, mermaids, sloths, llamas, alpacas and owls these days to be honest. They're everywhere and I'm so tired of seeing them, my eyes are exhausted.
That one god damn squiggly lettering thing that everyone and their mum uses in their bullet journals and inspirational quote posters.
Anything that has some dumb English or French text all over it for no reason. "Inspiring" or "quirky" quotes, random words, even just a bunch of city names or whatever (you know the shirts that just say PARIS LONDON TOKYO NEW YORK on them? yep. those -_-). Not a fan. Especially if they're written in that one god damn squiggly font. Hnnnnhhhhhhhhhh.
Religious things make me uncomfortable. While I don't mind angel and goddess imagery (I like the concept of guardian angels and such), please do not say "god bless you" or "you're in my prayers" or talk about "god's will" to me or anything of the sorts.
Disney: Cars, Frozen, annoying animal sidekicks, Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Jungle Book, Chicken Little, The Incredibles, Lilo & Stitch, Inside Out, Finding Nemo... I can't be arsed to list every single thing so assume that if what you have in mind is not included in my "Things I like" section, it probably belongs here.
MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me.
Game of Thrones. Doctor Who. My Little Pony unless it's the original 80s MLP. Tolkien. Video games. Most superhero things, dystopian novels and scifi things. Transformers and other robot stuff or whatever (unless it's NGE). Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty and whatever the kids on tumblr watch these days. Nerd/geek culture in general, like jesus christ I absolutely do not give a flipping heck. Also: sports, cars and other vehicles (with the exception of badass women on motorcycles, this I very much do like). The general concept of men.
I'm a feminist but I have no use for embarrassing "Smash the patriarchy!! [picture of a fist with manicured nails]" or "Feminists are cool!" or "Blarhgf blahrgrg the radical notion that women blahblaghfhgd" stickers and such. Actual feminist art and vulva imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women). Think Guerrilla Girls and Georgia O'Keeffe.
Homophobes can also heck right off. (ง •̀_•́)ง i will fite u with my tiny lesbian fists
I've seen people complain about this "issue" to people they've rated 1 or 3 so here's my 0,02€ on it:
I always mail things on time and I click "Sent" on the day I've brought the mail to the post office and paid for it. However, where I live, anything I send won't get stamped until 1-3 days after I've paid for the postage, depending on the day I've mailed it. Mail is delivered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and not much happens outside those days. All outgoing mail is sent to a mail sorting center which is where they will get stamped - when, I have no way of knowing. Some of them don't even get stamped at all (for example, Christmas mail rush doesn't leave much time to stamp every single little thing that goes through their conveyor belt).
Also, timezones. Those are a thing.
So if you're going to be petty about stamp dates and sent dates not matching... hmm, maybe reconsider.
My name is Neea. As you can see, it is only four letters long. N, E, E and A. One would think that'd be an easy name for any literate person to write and/or type correctly, yet somehow I have received swaps addressed to the following variations of my name:
I am none of these things. My last name has also been... hmm... modified on more than one occasion, and the delivery of one such envelope was delayed because of this confusion.
Every time you butcher my name, [your deity of choice] kills a kitten.
Please, think of the kittens.
