I am an aspiring social worker, recently started grad school while working full time, love to inline skate, board/card game, dance, read, volunteer and swim.
I frequent the renaissance festival and comic con. I am a three year San Diego Comic Con vet and haven't missed Texas Renaissance Festival/Scarborough Faire/Sherwood Forest Faire since I was a kid.
Did I mention I love cats? As in, I want a small army of them to cuddle all over me every moment of every day? But for the sanity of my partner, I have limited myself to one crazy cat with a big personality - Dr. Rockzo aka Mr. Kitty. Somehow he lost his licensure in his nickname...
Band of Gold by Freda Payne is my favorite song of all time, Lonely Teardrops by Jackie Wilson comes a close second and pretty much anything by Elvis Presley for third. Followed by a lot of Queen, more Motown, throw in some disco and all the hip hop you can find me.
This section, movies, and television are going to look strangely similar... Full of sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery.
I grew up on the Lord of the Rings, murder mysteries, and Charlaine Harris. Never Let Me Go is and has been my favorite novel for some time. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn really spoke to me in my youth and I read every Joan Lowry Nixon book in my middle school library. My love of mystery evolved with Stella Duffy. And currently I enjoy expanding my passion of social work with gender and anthropological studies.
Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice!
My name is Rachel in honor of my dad's, and my favorite movie, Blade Runner. Give me a young Harrison Ford and Sean Young any day. Hence, my other loves of Indiana Jones and Ace Ventura Pet Detective. Laces out!
Love Me If You Dare and The Edukators are two of my favorite foreign films. I don't know if Inglorious Basterds counts as a foreign film, but you can go ahead and add that into my favorites.
The Venture Bros. and Veronica Mars are two of my most favorite shows. I share them with anyone who is willing!
Bears, Beets, and Battlestar Galactica. And Doctor Who. And Firefly. Of course also Star Trek AND Star Wars. Aaaaaand go ahead and throw in some Lost Girl while we are adding to sci-fi mountain.
Can I just say, STRANGER THINGS?! And THE GET DOWN?! Netflix is doing very well with the $10.81 they get from me every month.
New Netflix add that I'm intrigued by - Galavant.
Mail! I've been an avid letter writer/mail sender since I was kid. Several of my family members passed their love of mail to me, whom I still write to. Until I discovered the majestic Internet community of mail lovers, I mostly send mail to friends. I try to get birthday cards out on time! I've only been successful a few times this year though. My partner and I also send out a yearly holiday/New Year photo card. I'm also apart of the Letter Writers Alliance and International Geek Girl Pen Pals.
Collages. I am planning to make a collage with all the used stamps I receive over the next several years from swaps. Plans are also brewing for a postcard wall/installation at our future house.
Discovering the world of envelope making and ATCs.
If you don't receive my swap, please message me and I will resend!
Thank you for rating me! I try to respond to ratings when I am able but still appreciate you if I don't respond :)
If you're planning on putting photos of your swaps on Instagram/Facebook/somewhere else, please don't show or mention my full name or my address and I will do the same for swaps I send :) Thank you!
