My name is Vera and I am 21 years old. I live in the US and am currently in college studying Mechanical Engineering with a minor in math. I work at an engineering firm where I design and build lasers. I love to be creative (I knit, sew, and bake) and I am learning to play the guitar. I'm pretty easy going so I'm sure I'll like whatever you send to me :)
Note: I send my mail using my campus post office, so if the post mark is a few days off, it is because they are sometimes very slow. They have been up to a week delayed so please be patient! I will not flake so do not worry about that!
Things I love:
deep jewel tones like blue, purple and green
quick drying nail polish (not black or really dark colors)
stuff that is hand-made
fishing and fishing related things
beach things (sail boats/ seashells)
cute little boxes or jars
cute school supplies (pencils/ pens/ notebooks)
cute salt and pepper shakers
my favorite number is 3
cinnamon scented things
small hair accessories (not giant bows)
planets and stars
old things with a story behind them
different shaped hole punches
knitting supplies (yarn/ needles)
sewing supplies (fabric/ thread/ patterns)
baking supplies (cupcake paper/ baking tools)
Cheesy romantic books (Nicholas Sparks)
TV ("Dexter" / "Raising Hope" / the Food Network)
good recipes that people have already tried
flip flops (size 8 US)
simple rings (size 5 or 6), bracelets, and necklaces
earrings (I have three piercings in each earlobe)
mechanical gadgets with moving gears
things made from recycled parts of something entirely different (like, bags made from juice boxes)
warm, fuzzy socks (I wear size 8 US shoes)
guitar accessories (picks/ straps/ sheet music)
Things I don't like:
sea food (fish/ shrimp/ crabs/ etc.)
onions (I HATE them)
things that are dark and creepy
dark nail polish
chunky, plasticy jewelry
toe socks (the ones that are like feet gloves)
I am really bummed that I have to add this section, but it has gotten to the point of being necessary.
I always take the time to prepare fun packages for others, and it is really disappointing when I get nothing in return.
I never give low ratings just for a package being late because I know that life in unpredictable sometimes. Basically, if I receive something of quality, you will receive a 5. So please don't decide not to send something just because you think that it won't be worth the rating.
I was flaked on for my very first swap (a Dexter themed swap that I was really looking forward to). I waited for 2 months before I finally accepted that I was not going to get something.
I was also flaked on a significant others swap. This one I was the most upset about because the package was for my boyfriend and he was really excited to receive something. We waited for a month before I finally had to tell him that nothing was coming.
If I never receive a postcard or a keychain, I won't be too upset. But, when I don't receive larger swaps it makes me really disappointed. Especially since I am usually looking forward to them for weeks.
Please don't flake on me (or anyone else). It really ruins the whole website when people are not reliable.
