The Nitty Gritty

Old photo from high school, but still pretty definitive of me as a person

Greetings, my name is Téa (tay-uh) and I'm a student studying International Relations. Though my primary focus is politics, I'm also really interested in different cultures. I dream of traveling the world and being able to speak at least half a dozen languages. ^_~

I haven't frequented SB for a while and I'll probably only make rare appearances here and there. Looking forward to swapping with some of you guys when/if I get the chance!


Miniatures, mushrooms, woodland creatures, wolves, turtles, elephants, minimalist, cherry blossom, lotus, clouds, kawaii, inanimate objects with faces, matryoshka dolls, gingerbread men, cool erasers, books, handmade items.

I love when the package that the swap is sent in is nicely decorated. Bonus points!

Wishful Thinking

  • foreign fashion/beauty magazines
  • nylon magazine
  • foreign candies/snacks
  • tim tams
  • japanese kit kat
  • alfajores
  • opi and essie nail polish
  • swimmer (Japanese brand)
  • artbox (Korean brand)
  • cute bookmarks
  • item from etsy faves

Books I Want preferably paperback
* The Book Thief
* The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber
* Choke
* To Say Nothing of the Dog
* A Thousand Splendid Suns
* The Israel Lobby
* Animal Farm
* The Giver
* Joyland
* The Gone Away World
* Angelmaker
* The Name of the Wind
* Alanna the First Adventure
* The Princess Bride
* Infinite Jest
* Ready Player One
* Bossypants
* Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me?

I'm also open to all kinds of books that you'd like to share with me! Though I'm admittedly not a big fan of romance novels... >:P

Stuff for my parents!
* healthy foods
* healthy recipes
* organic foods
* things that keep her warm
* burgundy lipstick
* piggies
* postage stamps
* troll dolls
* miniature cars, bicycles, motorcyles
* beanies
* 49ers, Giants, and Warriors!
* Felix the Cat
* Chinese/Japanese dragons


I really like foods with faces, and other inanimate objects with faces. For animals, I love it when they're drawn really tiny (think tiny pandas, bunnies, and hamsters).

Characters I love: tiny cafe, yogurt kun, milkuma, smile pocket, purin, hannari tofu, onsen manju, capsule children, milk kun, kinokoron, nyan nyan nyanko, sweet coron, chocopanda, beer chan, panzac village, etc! I'd probably also love any similar characters.

The above mentioned characters are just an idea of what I like... I don't expect them for swaps since they're relatively harder to find than most other characters. I like the older kawaii stuff that is considered rare now, but I still like a lot of the newer ones.

Dislikes/Things I Don't Need

Dolls, clowns, candles, craft supplies, anime, dollar store & walmart items, avon & mary kay items, American cartoon characters, disney, diddl, baby infinite, kamo platypus, kutusita nyanko, pictures of real animals, generic kawaii, plain bento boxes, tea towels, the smell of smoke on things.

Kawaii characters I like BUT have too much of so please don't send
* hello kitty
* sanrio (unless it's an older character)
* rilakkuma
* kerori
* usacolle
* natto chan
* sea paradise
* kawaii brands from korea or china (except Artbox)
