About Parakeetmails

swapbot is my anxiety reliever, so please don't take this amazing experience away from me. I rate generously and I give people second chances, all I ask for in return is for you to do the same. I NEVER flake. Please rate generously. thank you♡

PLEASE READ:

1/2/20

As of 12:33AM today, my mother has passed away peacefully on her bed. Please pray for my family as we are grieving this loss very badly. I wont be delaying my swaps but I will be slowing down on them, especially because I will be spending most of my money on trips to Oregon right now. Thank you for understanding

P.s if you haven't received my swap yet, please message me so I can resend. I'm always willing to resend (that's within reasoning)

note: I am looking for profile based private swaps OR groups. I'm also very interested in journal swaps/artistic drawings etc.

hey! i'm Chana. I currently reside in WA state, this dreary, yet peculiar place I currently call home. I'm 20, a college student in Flight Attendance, all while being a therapist in training, and i've been penpalling & swapping since 2017. as I currently hold 300+ outgoing's and 300+ incoming's (check my instagram on the bottom of my bio for reference), I love to swap postcards, ATC's, stickers & art. I no longer penpal because I don't have the time to sit at my table and write for 2 hours, so I switched over to something much easier, creative and fun, that being Swap-bot back in 2019. I love love love receiving mail! If you could tell by my username, i'm an absolute bird maniac. I love birds, more particularly parrots. I own 3 budgie's, Eli, Gids, & Tikki! but in my overall life i've owned 10 birds! So receiving bird related things make me extra happy.

I have an anxiety disorder, and i'm also a recovering SUI & bulimia - anorexia survivor. So please have patience with me incase I ask you a question, thank you♡

WHAT IVE BEEN TRYING TO COLLECT LATELY...

Strawberry themed mail. Such as cutouts. I also have been heavily trying to collect magazine cutouts or any sort of cutout I can use for journaling!

I severely LOVE food related anything...cutouts...stickers...memo's...

I've also been really interested in receiving & collecting magazine collages, flipbooks, & foreign foods.

Hobbies

I love to journal. I have a big bulky journal filled with everything between pictures, stickers, ATC's, to wax seals, cut-out's and art. I cant seem to ever get old of stickers either. I also like to stuff my envelopes to the brim with goodies. There is something satisfying about sending someone an abundance of goodies, maybe it's the satisfaction knowing it will put a smile on their face :) (most of the time). I'm also a mental health advocate, I know how it feels to feel hopeless so I am always a open hand for those in need.

FOOD

I am particularly a picky eater, but I will eat most things. My favorite is snacks. I get severe munchies at night so I love love love savoury snacks. Sour cream & onion, cheddar, bbq...you get it :) Rye is a favorite treat of mine. I love chips, unique chocolate bars (cool wrappers or unique flavors). I am a very carnivorous person, lol. I DO love mushrooms (strange enough) and I love african seasonings. Orange chicken is so good but I cant eat it due to wheat allergies.

Even though I cant really have wheat, I LOVE carrot cake. I am a die hard fan for cheesecakes, pudding, mousse, yogurt, strawberry shortcakes, banana or chocolate creampies...lemon bars...oh gosh!!! So good.

I'm preferably organic, so if you do send something sweet but its moderately healthy I will definitely eat it! I love unique flavors. I can usually find the most unique ones at Pinoy Asian markets. I love Takoyaki too. Corn nuts, popcorn, ramen, foreign sweets/desserts are a big yes.

ALLERGIES:

I really can't eat wheat. I just had some wheaty snacks & I had severe reactions to it :/ In small portions I may be able to handle it, but overall it's a 50/50 chance if my body reacts badly to it. Rye bread doesn't affect me at all though!

I DONT like sugary things. That goes for candy, sour candy, suckers, candy bars (cheap brands like twix, snickers...etc.) Yes, this even includes caramel, marshmallows & gummy bears. I stay away from sugar so please no overly sugary sweets :)

Please dont send me bacon flavored things (or anything bacon). I dont do shrimp either. Thank youuuu!♡

Pets I own

I have 3 adorable little budgies. Gids, my oldest male, is a clumsy pretty boy who loves to sit by the window and watch cars go by. Eli, my second oldest male, is a fancy schmancy boy, and LOVES to sing. He's my singer boy. Tikki, my youngest female, is super smart and likes to make new birdy friends. She loves to fly and also loves to scream. I also have a dog, shes a border collie named Dèja. Shes 5 years old!

Outside of crafting and journaling, I personally love video games, digital art, and cooking. I'm a total foodie and trying out new food! So far the newest food I've gotten to eat is Calamari!!

my instagram is @ post2ptsd if you need to get in contact with me. You can also check out some of my outgoings on there!

Hi friend!! ❤️❤️❤️

mysmashbooklife on Jan 22, 2020:

This is the first time i am doing an electronic one, so i hope i am doing this right. If not please let me know!

Hi! This message is for the Let’s talk! Food Recipes: Email/Message edition. Sweet recipe: Take a plain bread roll and put some brie or camambert between it. Put it in the oven on 200 degrees and put it in there for 10. Don’t let it smelt to much or it is wasted on you. In the meanwhile take some pinapple and cut it in two halves. Bake some onions (small pieces) Take the bread out of the oven. Put the pineapple on it and the baked onions and it is good to go.

Savoury recipe: Boil some pasta as the packaging says. In the meanwhile cut some: onions, pepper and mushrooms. Bake them for a while. Take the cream cheese out of the fridge. Open the can of tuna and get the oil or water out. Get the pasta out of the water. And mix thema all together and you have a nice dinner.

My absolute favorite: I absoluty love the make my own cream cheese. But the ones they sell at the stores are full of fat. So i make my own. I just take some turkish or other yoghurt. Doesn’t matter which one you use and cream cheese. Also cut some chives in really really small pieces. Now mix 50gr of the cream cheese with 100gr of yogurt. Put the chives in there as well. Mix them together. You got a fresh cream cheese which is much better for you.

I love these variant so much because it is tasting so fresh. We have a lot of stores in the Netherlands were you can buy sandwiches with this type of cream chees. Unfortunately they don’t sell them in trays so i had to figure out to make my own. And i did. It’s my favorite because you can eat it with everything. With chicken, salom, etc. So much choice!

I hope you liked my recipes and i really hope you will try them out!
