About Me

I am a recent college graduate, living in a super cute studio in downtown Lincoln, NE. I walk to work, bike when the weather is good, and shop locally as much as possible. During the week, I teach English to adults and on the weekend, I tend bar at the country-est ballroom in the midwest.

I'm updating my profile after being away from SwapBot for about a year and a half - lots of change! I am no longer a vegetarian; I have been learning to cook meat and I love it!

Favorite Music

Janelle Monae, Deals gone bad, Donovan, Beck, Atmosphere, Digable Planets, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, LCD Soundsystem, Dan Reeder, Animal Collective, Passion Pit, Tom Waits, Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown, Reggie Watts, Ani DiFranco, Matt Wilson, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Otis Redding, Joni Mitchell, The Brecker Brothers, The Blow, Dirty Projectors, Alabama Shakes

Things that make me smile

Sleep, music, decorating my apartment, coffee, learning to cook new things, hanging out with my friends, delicious alcoholic beverages :)

Favorite Crafts

Here's my confession: I'm not a crafty person. I've never had the knack to create tangible objects that are aesthetically pleasing. I promise to avoid crafty swaps that are beyond my scope and abilities. :)

Stuff I like

I would love to receive postcards, especially ones with quotes or portraits. I like notebook and writing materials. My favorite colors are blue and green. I'm a hippie at heart, and I love tye dye, earthy things, and birkenstocks! :)

Two of my favorite foods are bananas and peanut butter. I like herbal teas and dried fruit.

My decorating style is a hodge-podge of artwork handed down to me by my family, but my favorite stuff is African themed. I like mohawks and tattoos, piercings and such, though I would never wear them myself. The more unique, oddball, or random an object, the better!

Comment: Thank you for the unusual b&w PC. :) I think Thailand is my favorite so far; I fell in love with the beaches and a hot, exotic dj/fire spinner. 'Grats on your 6-mo, too!

Comment: Most of the time I taught English, Math and social studies, but also did science ,art, health. It was a self contained class. Sometimes you would walk in the door and before I put the coffeee down something would be happening that needed attention. I liked it as I was never bored. Thanks for the card.

Comment: I love the card, and I can't wait for the rest of the Walking Dead season. AMC is doing a marathon soon of the show so far. I have read the comics and what I like is the show is just different enough from the comics to keep you guessing what will happen to this or that person.

Hi Elektra, I received a postcard from you (vintage Bambi) but there is no name of the swap on it, so I have no idea where to rate!

jilleebee on Apr 26, 2011:

Hi there! Just to let you know that your card for the Any Postcard Swap is on its way to you - hope it gets there quickly. Have a happy day!! :)

Welcome to swap-bot! Your profile is kind of short, but I love your "Things that make me smile" section. Things like that really help you get a sense of a person!

Over time, if you add to your profile, it will help for profile-related swaps, but it's quite nice, just as it is! (RMP&LaNC Swap)

OnyxsMom on Mar 15, 2011:

Hi from NC. Sounds like you are a talent young lady! I am new at this swapbot also. I have to admit since there is an age difference between us, I cannot relate to the music, but it sounds like good choices. It sounds like you are a smart young lady and we can never have enough friends. Have a great day!

Swap- Read my profile and write a comment.

Hiya, I always wanted to play the saxophone cus it seemed kinda cool. But my mom wanted me to learn the flute (don't really know why!). Hope you enjoy swapbot!

Hi! I'm one of your partners from the "Read my profile and write a comment" swap :) And cool, I get to be your first comment ever!

I love your "things that make me smile" list. Other than the vacuuming, I'm with you 100%. Even better is when the things on the list can be combined... for example, a cold beer with friends, followed by dinner and music, and a nice long sleep after that :P

Have a great week!! Emika

JWJW2 on Mar 15, 2011:

I'm all about loving the things that make you smile. Great list (I'm adopting it). :) Love your music list as well.
