My name is Laure, I am a caregiver, working in a nursing home specialized for people with Alzheimer and other senile dementias. And I love my job ! If you work in a social/ medical field, I’d like to know what made you choose this path and what you like/hate about it !
I live in Marseille, south of France, with my rescued dog, Lucky, a 8 years old English setter (his estimated birthday is 12 march 2015) . I’m originally from Switzerland and I absolutely love cows (of course I love all animals as well).
I love sending / receiving postcards and letters since forever ! I am on Postcrossing of course, and the limitations there are so frustrating ! I want to send more and receive more mail !
My dad recently passed away (cancer, I’m 100% ok talking about it if it’s something you’d like to discuss) and was a huge postcard collector, so now I have way too many postcards waiting to be sent all over the world and I absolutely can’t restrain myself from buying every postcards I see so the collection is growing ! I need to send everything !
When I don’t work, I spend my time walking my dog and exploring the world with him, he loves to hunt butterflies (don’t worry he never catches any) and he’s the best at cuddles and being dumb cute. I adopted him in September 2021 so he was already almost 7 years old and i have no idea what was his life before his rescue. But it must haven’t been lots of fun.
If you have or used to have a pet, please tell me everything about it ! I love stories of connection between humans and animals so much.
Animals, especially cows and dogs, but I love them all really (not a big fan of birds tho, except howls and little birds such as robin) (PS: I do not count farm birds as birds, so yes I love chickens, peacocks, turkey, pigeons and all these !)
Botanical, I love plants as well, not only flowers but everything from trees to vegetables, favorite flowers are edelweiss and pansy
Calligraphy, I like looking at your beautiful writings, but I’m bad at it lol
Death, ok that sounds weird, but I’m interested in it’s representation through the years and cultures
English Setters, of course my favorite dog breed !
Fall is my favorite season, so anything related
Green and Blue (and everything in between) are my favorite colors, I also like purple and silver
History, true historical events or totally fictional tales, I love both !
Insects, especially butterflies, but I kinda like them all (in pictures and drawings ! I’m scared to death of real life centipedes)
Just postcards, my first snail mail love
Kamchatka (random but I needed a k and this place is so beautifully stunning)
Letter paper, latest stationary addiction, but I love a beautiful letter paper and it’s not that easy to find (especially with assorted envelopes)
Medical stuff, anatomy, human and animal, especially comparative anatomy
Nature, especially mountain and sea
Old things, whatever how old, from prehistoric to yesterday
Polaroids and analog photography
Questions ! Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything, I’m really open minded and will be glad to answer !
Russian things, I’ve been studying Russian for a while now and start understanding and being able to read easy sentences, I love all former Soviet countries as well and hope to go visit some days (I know it may sound weird due to current events, but I’ve had this interest ever since I was a child, no idea why)
Stickers, I’m addicted to stickers omg, this is a serious addiction problem, I also like washi tapes
Taxidermy and other bizarre things you could find in a Cabinet of curiosity
Tea, I love tea ! My favorites ’green and blue tea, but I drink black and white tea as well and love herbal infusions ! Nothing too artificial tho, and I have a irrational disgust for rooibos
Utopies, I wish the world was a safe space for everyone
Veggies, I’m mostly an herbivore, I only hunt mushrooms and always bring zucchinis and eggplants when I’m invited to a BBQ
let me know if you have any problem with my swaps, I will be glad to resent to you and will never rate anything other than 5 without discussing it first with the person. Please do the same.
Post service in France is SO SLOW even a snail would be more fast ! And we have so many strikes and protest all the time here (especially February / March / April / May 2023, …), let’s just be patient !
