NOTE - I live in the dystopian nightmare that is the ''United'' Kingdom. Between Brexit and coronavirus, mail is sometimes going at a normal pace and sometimes taking forever. We're NOT OKAY, please SEND HELP. Just...er...don't send it through the mail because it may not get here until we're all dead.
Emma, 31, from Scotland.
I live with my partner and 2 cats (Esme and Igor) and enjoy wild swimming, weight lifting, yoga, singing, reading, upcycling/some craft type things, cooking/baking, pen-palling, gardening and wandering in the woods. I have some mental health issues so a lot of my life is focused around trying to keep myself on an even keel and trying to find new ways to navigate the bumps life throws up. That said, I'm a mostly positive (if sarcastic) person. I try to live Tabitha Brown's phrase of - ''have a good day, but honey - if you can't? Don't you dare go messing up anybody elses'' - as much as I can without being a doormat.
I collect view postcards - at the moment there are view cards of some specific US states/places I'm looking for - so if you can help me out with ;
-Mount Shasta, House on the Rock, Africatown (or other freedom towns), Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, N Carolina, N Dakota, S Carolina (I also collect rare countries so if you or someone you know may want to swap from somewhere exciting for a postcard from Scotland) let me know!
In terms of swapping, I'm happy to swap with newbies on a they-send-first (and I send once I receive) basis. I'm open to private swaps in general :)
I always try to tailor the swap as much as I can, even in senders choice swaps. I want to make people happy with my swaps.
I rate as soon as I receive and have time to soak in the swap - if I haven't rated you yet, it's because I haven't received the swap.

R - Rats, recipes.
S - Socks, Studio Ghibli, Scrabble, Smashbooking, Schitts Creek, the Scottish Highlands, sunflowers, seeds for my garden, skincare, stimming stuff - the kind of things advertised for those with autism to stim with - (I find they're often great for anxiety), snacks we don't have here in the UK.

U - Urban legends, unsolved mysteries.

Y - Yoga and anything that would look nice / be useful in an at home yoga-area.
Z - Zines.
I'm allergic to calamine.
Liquorice - eugh.
I don't want religious stuff - especially not stuff aimed at converting / saving me. An exception would be zines because I collect zines on any subject, regardless of my feeling on the subject.
I do not want propaganda / stuff about hard right OR hard left ideologies.
I have a fear of whales (especially killer whales) and I'm not so keen on dolphins. The whale part is the main thing, though. I can handle cartoon whales but real photos/videos/sounds from whales, especially killer whales, make me feel sick and panicky.
AMAZON - boycott Amazon! Make sure Jeff Bezos is the first against the wall when the revolution comes. I'd rather never be sent anything from Amazon because every time another £/$ is put into that piece of human garbage's pocket, a kitten somewhere in the world dies (not to mention an Amazon worker passes out from fatigue).
It's amazing to me that I have to say this, but I've seen people swapping GOLLYWOGS on this site - I don't want anything with a gollywog on it. Unbelievable.
I absolutely hate drag / Ru Paul type stuff. Just as I don't want anything gollywog because they're disgusting caricatures of black people, I don't want anything to do with men parodying / mocking women (or anything involving a dominant group mocking/belittling/wearing an oppressed group as a costume).
