About Me

20-something years old, female, living in southern France (bouncing back and forth between Pau and Marseille)... willing to write anywhere in the world, in French, English, or Italian. :)

I'm agnostic, open-minded, and on an eternal quest to learn more about the universe and other people.

I love dancing with abandon, seeing live concerts, and reading books, blogs, newspapers, and magazines.

I'm as likely to stay up all night partying as I am to stay up all night discussing and comparing worldviews.

Women's issues are extremely important to me.

I have two female domestic rats named Tegan and Sara - they're intelligent and amazing!

Write to learn more! : )

Peace

  • Earl Grey tea
  • cigarette accessories (especially cigarette cases and reusable lighters!)

Also, my partner Quentin and our group of friends are involved with professional BMXing, so anything related to BMX (stickers, mags, clothes, posters, videos, etc.) would make my loved ones extremely happy! :) Thanks so much!

I don't love

  • Coupons, because I live in France and they don't work here. Ever.
  • Racism, sexism, homophobia... any form of bigotry.
  • Impersonal or hasty letters... don't be afraid to tell me about yourself, or, if that's not your thing, then make something up! ;)

My Partner

I'm currently living with and loving my fantastic boyfriend, Quentin. =) Some swaps include treats for loved ones, so here's some info about him:

  • He's 21 years old and he's working on a degree in Mechanical and Energetic Engineering.
  • The only sport that he plays or watches is freestyle BMX (Bicycle Motorcross). Basically, this involves hopping on a miniature bike and doing crazy tricks like back flips in a skatepark or on random obstacles... it's fascinating to see! Anything related to BMX or BMX brands would be greatly appreciated! (Magazine, video, poster, etc.)
  • He loves classic rock, from the 60s-80s. His favorite artists are The Doors / Jim Morrison, Pink Floyd / Syd Barrett, The Who, and Led Zeppelin. Posters, pins, keychains, or other memorabilia of these groups would be amazing!
  • His favorite colors are dark neutrals like black and brown (typical frenchie!)
  • He wears size 45 (US 11-11.5) for socks and shoes
  • He wears size L for T-shirts and shirts
  • Speaking of t-shirts, if you somehow manage to find one featuring one of his favorite groups, I think he might die of happiness. Impossible to find in France, even in vintage shops! Otherwise, he likes brands like Quikslver, Billabong, DC, etc.
  • He loves sugary treats and candies. Any and all of them. =)
  • He smokes cigarettes (rolled and packaged)
  • The only video game system he has is handheld (Nintendo DS)
  • He loves Sudoku! =)
  • He doesn't like football (soccer) or American football. He also doesn't like cars or motorcycles.

Woo... that was more mind-racking than I thought! ;)

Favorite Visual Artists

Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalì, Helmut Newton

Art Supplies

Disclaimer: Unlike most of the talented people on this network, I am not one for making crafts. I don't knit, sew, crochet or scrapbook. I would LOVE to receive anything that you have made yourself, but I do not have any use for raw crafting materials.

I do, on the other hand, enjoy sketching, painting, and working with oil pastels and artist markers! So, brushes, paints, pencils, charcoal, pastels, erasers, or anything like that would always be welcome. =)

Thanks so much for understanding! =)

Swaps

I have never failed to send out a package or letter, and I don't plan on it! If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and we will certainly figure something out!

Also, please keep in mind that I am in France, and if you are outside of Europe, it may take more than the normal 2 weeks to be delivered to you.

That being said, I will make every effort to send out all of my swaps in a timely manner and with lots of love and care! ^ ^

Comment: Hey! Your package was fantastic! First off, I really enjoyed your poem/letter because I have a therapist and it is funny how we'll spill our guts to complete strangers with trust and no remorse... I loved how interactive the photo magazine ,. I'm gonna surf around on the web one of these days and see if I can steal a listen of one of the djs on that bar handout. For sure we should figure out another private swap to do sometime :)

Hey Kitty,

so, how about the "Introduce your country" swap? Have you sent it in the meantime? I really hope, you have done it, because your partner also wants to receive something!

Kind regards,

Fever
