Hi! I'm Anna, and my favorite hobby is traveling (sending mail is a close second!). I've been sending mail to pen pals and using postcrossing for years and thought I'd try something new! I live in Boston, and have for a few years now. I love dogs and nature and sunrises, and I'm excited to see what comes and goes from my mailbox in the next few months! I always find it so hard to explain/describe myself in these, but I'm a laid back person at heart who has oodles of anxiety (lots of late nights crafting to distract myself!). I grew up in central NJ on a small farm and have one younger sibling. In the last year I drove from Boston to Tennessee to see the eclipse (Aug 2017) and to Juneau from Boston (Mar-Apr 2018) which took a whole month, and was maybe the most incredible month of my life (my cousin drove with me and we went to 8 national parks and 9 (major) cities, through 16 states and 2 provinces. (follow me on instagram if you want! @acollins394 ) Another key piece of my personality is that I love plants-they're everywhere in my room and in every room of my apartment (there's only two rooms with no plants that aren't bedrooms and they're both bathrooms).
I don't have as much time to read as I used to, but I grew up loving Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings type of books. Now I still read mostly fiction but less fantasy-some of my favorite books I've read recently are The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, We Are Okay by Nina LaCour, and Love Letters to the World by Meia Geddes.
I've loved a lot of shows that aren't currently on TV! Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Fringe, and Avatar to name a few. Some of my favorites that are airing right now include Bob's Burgers, Elementary, Brooklyn 99, Jane the Virgin (though I am woefully behind on episodes), and Jessica Jones!
General: I like plants and colorful patterns-I particularly like flowers/flower patterns. I don't really enjoy orange in general, or neon colors! I also REALLY don't like glitter, unfortunately
Tea: I prefer herbal teas but enjoy some fruity teas as well! I don't enjoy mint/peppermint at all, so please don't send those
Stickers: I don't really like 3D stickers, sorry! I like pretty much all other stickers-I have two boxes full of them!
Washi: I prefer true washi tape (paper based) and not decorative tape, but I don't mind getting some decorative tape every once in a while! I really love flower and plant washi tape, but don't have much use for tapes that are planner/bullet journal oriented (i.e. ones that say the days of the week on them, or to do, etc)
