About Me

Hello! I'm fairly new to Swap-Bot (joined in 2020). I love writing letters and getting things in the mail other than bills. I live in Australia and enjoy reading, creative writing, drawing and gardening. I'm vegan. I love animals, even the creepy crawly ones. I like horror movies and 80s fashion.

I love reading zines, though I have only recently made my first one. I've also been experimenting a little bit with decorating envelopes with stamps.

Update: May 2021- I've been super busy with uni lately, and had some annoying health issues, so I'm afraid I've been a bit slack about responding to thank people for ratings (sorry), though I have still been getting swaps out on time and I try to rate swaps as they arrive. Postage between Australia and some other countries still seems to be slow (I've had postcards take more than a month to reach me), though it seems to have improved since last year.

Likes/Interests- Animals (dogs, cats, spiders, that weird lizard that shoots blood out of its eyes...) gardening Movies - horror, the odd rom-com, 80s movies zombies vampires bats 80s fashion K-Pop- I'm new to this, but I love BTS and Blackpink

Chocolate Weird earrings (some of my favourites that I have include a pair made from human teeth and some shaped like miniature toasters). Wire wrapped jewellery plushies two headed cats sci fi fantasy novels cryptids Moomins Harry Potter Soviet memorabilia tea Aussie hip hop Skepticism Creative writing

Dislikes- Misogyny, homophobia and racism Right wing politics Animal cruelty Depictions of dead animals or stuff about hunting Pseudoscience Mariah Carey (just her music, not her as a person) Coca Cola

Tea- I'm not a fan of chamomile, fennel or liquorice teas (I HATE liquorice), but I love any black tea, green tea, chai, herbal or fruity teas. I can't have dairy.

Favorite Books

Jane Austen (Persuasion is my favourite). Fantasy- Ursula Le Guin, The Hobbit Kurt Vonnegut Sci fi JM Redmann Romance- Molly Harper, Stacia Kane, contemporary rom coms, some historical. Agatha Christie Terry Pratchett Douglas Adams

Favorite Television

The Magicians, Farscape, She Ra, Xena Warrior Princess, My LIttle Pony Friendship is Magic, How to Get Away With Murder, Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, The Expanse, Altered Carbon, Star Trek Voyager, Preacher, The 100, No Offense, Elementary, Offspring, K-Drama (Hotel Del Luna, It's Okay To Not Be Okay, Sweet Home, Mystic Pop Up Bar...)

Favorite Movies

The Descent, Practical Magic, Triangle, Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Hocus Pocus, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2016, Moon, Bladerunner, Always Be My Maybe, One for the Money, Wonder Woman, The Fast and the Furious series, Ghost in the Shell.

Postcards

LIKES: Cards with animals, spiders, pictures of places (landscapes, buildings), K-Pop, Star Wars, Moomin, Soviet cards, vintage cards (even better if they've been written on), rainbows, bright colours. Home made is cool.

DISLIKES: Anything religious, ad cards

Stickers

I'm currently obsessed with Scratch and Sniff stickers. Also, anything with rainbows, sparkly stuff, animals, plants, mushrooms, fairies, goblins unicorns, My Little Pony, K-Pop, Star Wars. My favourite colour is purple.

Stamps

I recently started collecting stamps. I like used stamps from around the world, but especially from Russia, and any with pictures of birds, insects, animals, Moomins and cartoon characters.
