Hello, my dears. I'm Niko, but I often go by the diminutive form of Kolya. Very nice to meet you.
I just graduated from college with a Bachelor's in English and am still struggling a little bit settling into a job. I spend most of my time job hunting, writing, editing, and volunteering.
I suppose if I had to describe myself, I would say I fit mostly into the gothic-romantic subculture. I enjoy reading anything and everything I can get my hands on, creating my own stationary, night-time gardening, throwing fancy dress dinner parties, frequenting industrial nightclubs, and fiction writing.
I very much look forward to getting to know this site better, and sending out lots of fun little things to all you lovely people. Thanks for reading.

I usually rate as soon as I receive a swap and try to give the benefit of the doubt. If you haven't been rated yet, it is because I haven't received anything. I'll always send a message before rating a 1 or a 3 so if anything went wrong, it can be resolved.
Please also send me a message if you haven't received anything from me. I make sure to send everything out on time, but the postal service is run by humans after all. I will be happy to resend anything if it gets lost. :)
It saddens me that I have to add this section, and I hope not to come off as bitchy, but please (please!) do not send me things related to Roma, Native American, African or any other marginalized or oppressed (by white people) culture if you are ignorant of it. There is absolutely no shame in not knowing about a culture, but please don't send me something, for example, that is a stereotype of Romani people under the label "g--sy" (which is a racial slur) or knockoffs of Native American art made by non-Native American people. It is insulting, disrespectful and will not leave us on good standing. I don't say this to scare anyone or to be mean, it's just a matter of respect and basic decency which I believe all people and cultures are owed. Thank you for reading, and if you have any questions on this, I will be happy to answer them.
Here is a picture of a cat in a dinosaur costume to make this section less negative.
