About Me

Updated 8/18/17:

I'll be doing a layaway at Walmart so I most likely won't have my new computer until mid-December. I most likely will start hosting swaps and games in January. I hope you understand.

Updated 8/14/17:

I just found out today that my computer is beyond repair. So I will be purchasing a new computer but I'm not sure how quickly that will happen. In the meantime I will not be hosting any swaps or hosting any games because this tablet I'm using now is not reliable. I hope everyone understands.

Updated 7/9/17:

I am taking a summer break (July and August) from snail mail swaps due to the summer heat. I will return to hosting and joining snail mail swaps in September when the weather cools down. I am making a few exceptions but for the most part this rule applies. I hope everyone understands.

I am a founder in the following groups. If you are interested in any of these groups, please send a request to join. Thank you!
