Hiya. I'm Neea, I'm 29 years old and I'm from Finland. I'm currently a part time student of various things related to foreign languages and cultures, 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 neither have the time nor the energy to be as insanely obsessed as I could be 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
If I come off as rude in my profile it's only because some people a) can't fucking read or b) have the intellectual capabilities of a rotten turnip. Possibly both. Hence the Hall Of Shame section, among other things. I promise I'm a well-adjusted individual and perfectly normal and nice in real life, lmao.
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.)
Novels such as Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Maurice by E. M. Forster are my jam. If it has lesbians in it or a happy gay ending, I will read it.
That being said, the heterosexual male perspective on literally anything does not interest me in the slightest and I will not read novels written by or about them.
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 pots 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, ART AND CRAFTS
POSTCARDS, STAMPS ETC
~AESTHETIC~ JUNK (lmao idk what to call this)
RANDOM CUTE STUFF, ANIME ETC
TEA, CANDY ETC
Contemplating the inevitability of death.
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 sour candies and passion fruit and mango flavored things.
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 if it fits the swap, but I will most likely regift them.
Halloween. Pumpkins. Horror.
Those mustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. Same with mason jars, 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 and tote bags 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.
Disney: annoying animal sidekicks, Alice in Wonderland, Big Hero 6, Cars, Chicken Little, Finding Nemo, Frozen, The Incredibles, Inside Out, Jungle Book, Lilo & Stitch, Peter Pan, Wreck-It Ralph... I can't be arsed to list every single thing so please 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.
Most geek stuff, such as Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, MLPFIM, LOTR and so on. Video games. Most superhero things, dystopian novels and scifi things. Transformers and other robot stuff or whatever. Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty and whatever the kids on tumblr watch these days. 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 "Feminism is for everyone!" or "Feminists are cool!" or "Blarhgf blahrgrg the radical notion that women blahblaghfhgd" stickers and such. Actual feminist art and yonic imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women!!). Think second wave. Think Guerrilla Girls, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pussy Riot and all the unladylike screeching hags that men love to hate. I'm an ugly hairy dyke who has no patience for fun & quirky "hobby feminism" that includes and/or coddles men, and my activism reflects that.
Don't fucking send me any god or jesus bullshit or I'll give you a 1 and send you anthrax in an envelope and subscribe you to a daily midget porn/scat fetish newsletter. I don't know if such a thing exists, but I'm prepared to find one just for you. Do not test me.
Homophobes can also heck right off. (ง •̀_•́)ง i will fite u with my tiny lesbian fists
1) I always send my swaps on time, and I mark them as "Sent" on the day I've paid for them and left them in the outgoing mail box. However, there is no actual post office in my town (I pay for and leave my mail in a corner shop which does nearly everything that a post office normally would), so whatever I send will NOT be stamped until a few days later, if even then, or at all! This is 100% out of my control, and if you give me a lousy rating for something as stupid as that, then, uhh. Have fun larping as a petty 9-year-old I guess?
2) On the swaps I host: follow the rules and don't be a dickhole, and you won't be banned. Simple.
My name is Neea. As you can see, it is only four letters long. N, E, E and A. It's even in my swapbot username. 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.
