About Me

☛☛☛ If you didn't get a swap from me, please message me first and let me know! I'll be happy to send you a replacement immediately! ☚☚☚

Addicted to stationery and that's why I love snail mail!

Varied interests in literature, art, mythology, history, old Hollywood, movies and baseball. Pretty open-minded and just taking life one day at a time.

Favorite Books

Big fan of Ray Bradbury, W. Somerset Maugham, Banana Yoshimoto and Margaret Atwood. I mostly like to read science-fiction and classics. I also love poetry especially ones written by Adrienne Rich, Sara Teasdale and Pablo Neruda.

I collect quotes and put them in my quote journal. Anything I read that I like, I write in there. I also have a separate journal for lyrics.

Favorite Movies

Old Hollywood is on top of my list. I adore the era. James Stewart, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Jack Lemmon, Myrna Loy... love them!

Some modern films I love are: The Painted Veil, Gattaca, Inception, Kate&Leopold, Another Earth, Stranger Than Fiction, Moon, You've Got Mail... to name a few!
