hi there!

PLEASE READ THIS PSA: So, due to the COVID-19, I have REALLY had to decrease my visits to the post office. I have asthma, and the people I live with are immunocompromised and one is 74.

Having said that, during the past 2 weeks, Ive noticed that i have been collecting a TON of swaps into a box in the back of my car (I keep thinking, “well, i have just 2 more swaps available to send tomorrow, so ill venture out then,” lol)

So during this pandemic, if i mark a package “sent,” it means that i have completed it, and its READY for mailing (trip to post office), that way i can remember which ones i have completed and which ones I haven’t. Therefore, i’m hereby APOLOGIZING to ANYONE who has not received older swaps from me yet— I am NOT FAKING ON YOU. ❤️

I love SwapBot SOOOOOOO much and the people i get to connect with is the best part of my day. I’ll be copying and pasting this into any messages i get about (hopefully slightly) late swaps just so you dont have to go to my profile to understand. ❤️ THANK YOU FOR READING THIS ❤️

Aaaand now we will continue with our regularly scheduled profile...:


I joined SwapBot with a goal: I LOVE to receive international swaps!!!!!!!!!!!! (and a full mailbox ;)

  • It helps with my anxiety.

  • I especially want to get postcards and anything else from around the world.... I will do private swaps with anyone who wants things from the US.

  • RECENTLY I began collecting my name, hand-drawn by anyone: “Hilary” OR “Harley” (Hilary is my real name, Harley my long-time nickname, or even my dog, “Gunner.” :)

  • I am obsessed with my doggo— Gunner is a Chisenji, (a chihuahua mixed with a basenji).

about me

  • I Just came home from galavanting in California, and Florida.
  • Now i live near Baltimore:Maryland, Alexandria:Virginia, and Washington:D.C. (known as the “DMV”).

  • I like to travel. I'm a 20-something female who loves the city... and the beach... and art... and music.

  • I believe in sharing kindness and i love mail.
  • I've never eaten meat before.
  • I'm in college for a liberal arts degree.
  • love adventures. I want to go everywhere.

  • I battled a fierce addiction to heroin and now i am in recovery with almost three successful years of sobriety. I am still trying to "find myself," whoever that may be. :)

about art

  • I grew up in an artsy family.
  • I have JUST started collecting stamps!!
  • i like glitter.
  • I like drawing, doodling and zentangle, usually with nice fine-tip pens or paint markers. *I want ideas for what to make with my 3D pen (its new to me)
    • Junk journaling
    • ive lived 1000 different lives. I like unique, obscure, even offensive or taboo related stuff. Just as much as i want wholesome stuff, i want trashy stuff, too. bring it on. :)

things i like

  • things from other countries or states
  • old movie stars
  • anything animal print
  • stamps (my new hobby! Teach me the ways, lol!)

  • BIG cats, like tigers, panthers, or wildcats
  • the beach
  • did i mention anything VINTAGE (and i mean ANYTHING?
  • bubblegum and candy, mint chocolate
  • fireball whiskey 👍 love it :)
  • bright colors
  • old sheet music (parents are musicians)
  • when my name is illustrated in a cool way (“Harley” or “Hilary” or “Gunner”)
  • tye-dye anything
  • New York City (was born there)
  • short stories
  • office supplies
  • homemade bracelets (ill cherish them forever!)
  • ATCs— here’s the deal: if you send me one, i will send one back! This is my new obsession. I seek to collect/send as many as i can.
  • small plastic animal figurines (Dinos, etc)
  • wooden figurines from Kenya/Africa
  • stickers
  • dinosaurs and llamas

I listen to these podcasts daily. Its an addiction, lol.

  • The Adam and Dr. Drew show (basically Loveline)
  • The Adam Corolla Show
  • This American Life (NPR) with Ira Glass

things i dislike

  • religious or bible-themed things, only because i have my own faith and maybe it is different than yours, but no better (UPDATE: Actually these days, i am seeking for anything religious because i want to hear and consider ALL views, so keep it coming if it’s something you think i should hear)
  • Donald Trump and MAGA (yuck)
  • tea - i don't drink it
  • country music
  • fast food - i dont eat it
  • super-unhealthy things like twinkies or little debbie
  • all bugs, even cute ones
  • gold jewelry

please don't send me

  • cosmetics
  • coupons
  • tea (i dont drink it)
  • anime
  • hello kitty
  • dollar tree items (i live near one and probably have it already :)

    but really, i'm thankful for anything

    and will re-swap anything I can't use!! :)

THANK YOU. Your friend, Harley (er, Hilary. Er, THIS GAL!) :D

Comment: Been waiting for over a month and you never rated me nor replied. It says my package reached you weeks ago. Please send my items and I will re-rate you.
beachchicken rated for Wishlist Swap on Jul 1, 2020
Comment: It has been one month since the deadline to send this swap and I have received nothing. June 1st was the deadline and it shows you mailed it out on June 3rd. I see your message on your profile about being late but I never got any communication from you about anything. I will change to a 3 when I receive this swap.

Comment: This recipe sounds really yummy, and I'll definitely be making it! I know where Ellicott City is. My grandma was from Baltimore, and we went to Storybrook Forest there sometimes when I was wee.

Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful bday stuff, but most of all thank you for the wonderful letter in my birthday card - it made me cry with happy tears. Last couple of bdays have been hard ones. You were just so kind! Thank you

StarburstOwl rated for TGIF Weekend Notecard #195 on Jun 6, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the card! I really enjoyed reading about your weekend. You just mentioning Warped Tour brought back so many good memories lol. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the great card!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE your swapbot name! Now I know why I couldn't have that one! I have serious bouts of wanderlust. I also have a strong yearning to purchase a street bike and ride all around the country. Any time it is warm and i hear the sounds of traffic and the blub-blub-blub or a motorcycle, I just close my eyes and say a prayer for strength and patience!

Comment: Hi Hilary! Thank you for the great postcard from Ellicot City. I haven’t been to EC in a good while. I have quite a few friends that live in DMV so I usually go through there and Baltimore when visiting friends not the East Coast.

Hello! Did you read my message about the swap you hosted? I had never receive anything from my partner and her profile is really doubtful! I would appreciate an answer... Thank you.

LavenderSprinkles on Jul 2, 2020:

Hey did you send my swap and can you please rate me?

LavenderSprinkles on Jun 26, 2020:

Hey. I hope you are well. Any update on the direct swap and the one you hosted I sent?

LavenderSprinkles on Jun 10, 2020:

Hey! Was everything ok on the direct swap and your other swap I sent you?

Barbara on Mar 16, 2020:

Hi Jen, Thank you for reading my profile and sending the beautiful miraculous medal of Our Blessed Mother Mary. It is very nice and I will wear it and feel her blessings!

PukeFacedFreak on Feb 29, 2020:

I barely just began writing on the back of a print out since I returned to swap not this year. I'd say "I don't know why I didn't think of this before" but I honestly think it's because I didn't have a printer of my own. But I'm so happy I thought about it! Just one more awesome achievement made by my happy brain.

Thank you for the PC from DC, Hilary. It was really nice of you to send it along. It definitely has a place in my collection!!! The cherry blossoms are awesome; wish I had seen them the time I spent a week in DC. Maybe another time! Thanks again.
