About Me

Hi!!!

Emilia here, 27 years old.

I live in Jyväskylä, Finland, with my small cat Mana, whose hobby is to sleep on my neck forgetting she's no longer a tiny kitten, and to walk over everything I put on the table. She's really cute and stubborn and I love her. I'm really into art, books, and video games. I also like folktales/traditions/outfits a lot. If I had the money for it (and covid wasn't a thing), I would love to do archery/horseback riding/martial arts, as those kinds of things interest me a lot.

I love learning languages, but I have a bad memory, so I can only fluently speak Finnish and English right now. I have studied Swedish and German, so you can write simple things in those as well! I read both better than I speak them though, so don't expect fluent answers, haha. I'm also trying to self-learn a bit of Korean since I got my hands on the Talk To Me In Korean books! It's still in very early progress though.

I spent my exchange study in Utrecht in 2016, and I miss the city greatly, so I'm always happy to receive any Dutch teas, foods, etc. Nijntje (Miffy) related things are always welcome :')

NOTICE!!

FOR SWAPPERS OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION: If you're sending anything bigger than a regular letter (or anything edible) from outside the European Union, please fill out a customs form for your shipment stating the contents and value of what's inside! If you don't, it will likely get stuck at the toll station and I'll have to pay to get it moving again. It's happened a few times already.

I'll happily resend things if asked, just let me know! The mail in Finland is slow (currently mail is delivered three days a week), so please contact me before rating if you don't receive your mail for some time. Similarly, mail takes a while to get here a lot of the time, so I tend to wait extra before hassling my partners about resends. I rate things the day I receive them.

My roommate is also a swapper so if you get the same address from both of us, that's not an error :D We were already swapping separately before we moved in, so we keep it like that, rather than a shared account.

Music

I listen to a lot of music from many genres. But my favorites are folk, pop/rock, indie, and soundtracks/musicals. A good music video is very nice, and I like to hear lyrics that make me feel something, whether it's for myself or for a character playlist I'm making, hahah.

Example bands I REALLY like:

CoCo and the Butterfields • Florence + the Machine • Fleet Foxes • Poets of the Fall • Celtic Woman • Fall Out Boy • NAVIBAND • American Authors • Värttinä • Ninja Sex Party • Hozier • Royal Republic

Books

Generally I don't give a crap about "classic must read's", and just go with what I like. I'm open to many genres if it's suggested to me, but usually I mostly read fantasy, such as:

Harry Potter • Lord of the Rings • Legend of Drizzt • The Dark Tower • Discworld • Shades of Magic

Outside of fantasy I like Jane Austen, books about old folk traditions and mythical creatures, lesbian romances, and books about cultures, myths and events around the world. Less so about war, battles don't interest me that much.

If it's a book with a female protagonist that isn't all about loving some random guy she just met and who's so mysterious, it's got a pretty good chance to be good with me. Add magic themes, drama and humor, and you're spot-on. Avoid suggesting love triangles if you can, those are exhausting.

I'm also really into comics, for example

Sandman • Saga • Dragon age comics (and books!) • Moomins • One-book publishments from solo artists • Donald Duck etc.

Crafts

I enjoy anything I can get really hands-on with, so pockets of all kinds are always appreciated, and fun surfaces that i can run my fingers on to feel it. I try to recycle parts of the decorations I receive in my crafts if I can. Recently I've started learning embroidery, and I draw a lot in my free time, both digitally and on paper. I like stickers, colorful and cute, naturalistic or fashionistic pop-culture, for example.

I really like natural color shades, but I'm a fan of all colors, as long as there's a lot of it or it's used in a cool way! I adore paintings made into postcards. I'm especially a fan of Helene Schjerfbeck, Martta Wendelin, and Gustav Klimt's art.

I've recently gotten into ATC's, and found that I love making them! I make a mix of watercolor and paper collabs, and I am happy to receive any kind of cards myself! Fantasy themes and bright autumny colors are my favorites.

TV and other things

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I adore animation and musicals! Anything with a good captivating story outside of just romance is a sure way to catch my attention, and strong song&dance sequences are the best! (think Broadway type music. I saw Lion King on Broadway once and cried like a baby)

Podcasts:

The Adventure Zone (Balance arc, haven't listened to the others yet) • Critical Role • Sickboy • Kaverin Puolesta Kyselen

Cartoons:

Moomins • Krtek (Mole?) • Winnie the Pooh • Ducktales (new and old) • Disney etc. Animated movies • Pippi Långstrump • Gravity falls • X-Men Evolution • Paddington Bear

Anime/manga:

Sailor moon • Pokemon • Azumanga Daioh • D.Gray-man • Yona of the Dawn • Brides' story • Ranma 1/2 • Princess Tutu • Fullmetal Alchemist • Tsubasa: Reservoir chronicle • Card Captor Sakura • All things Ghibli • Pandora Hearts • Made in Abyss • Jujutsu Kaisen

Teas

LIKES:

  • Absolute favorite is Black Vanilla Chai!! I don't mind if you send me multiples, I LOVE these. Same for vanilla rooibos.
  • Black, Oolong, flavored green & sencha, White, yellow, chamomile, chai and other spiced teas
  • Earl gray and the likes of it (=breakfast teas)
  • You can send me christmas tea anytime of the year, I adore the taste.
  • tbh, just surprise me.

DISLIKES:

  • Mint/peppermint, licorice, herbal infusions and super fruity teas.

Likes

  • Video games!! I've loved Kingdom Hearts since I was a kid. Final Fantasy (especially 7,10,12,14 and 15) is also an old favorite. I've also fallen in love with Team Ico games, and Dragon Age is perhaps my most loved game series as of right now, alongside the Legend of Zelda (especially OoT, TP, ST and BotW, but I love them all). Other than these, I am also a fan of Supergiant Games, Ni No Kuni, Pokemon, Prof.Layton, and the Persona series, among many others.)

  • Fantasy/magic

  • My favorite colors are leaf green and orange!
  • Women
  • Snacks & recipes
  • Animals
  • Handcrafts, both making and receiving
  • ATC's
  • Tea
  • Exploring new places and finding new sides of old places
  • Folk traditions/music/stories/foods etc.
  • Cosplay
  • sheep-themed things (my nickname since childhood has been "sheep")

Dislikes

  • Rude people
  • Bugs
  • Babies
  • Bullet journal specific things
  • No allergies, but I dislike ginger, lychee and passion fruit
  • Religious stuff that's meant to convert, but I don't mind you showing your own celebration of things, that's fun and interesting to hear!
  • Homophobic/racist/offensive things.
  • Scary images (especially horror faces)
  • I don't wear makeup unless it's for cosplay. Lip balms and skin/haircare products (for curly hair) etc. are nice though, as is anything that doesn't belong in a "daily makeup routine".

Wishlist

• Tea • Letter paper (they don't sell any here anymore :< it's a proper hunt to find even a single package that isn't just white paper.) • Envelope decorating supplies • Rubber stamps • Ephemera/paper scrap pictures etc. • Embroidery yarn
