About Me

UPDATE: TAKING A BREAK FROM SB TO FOCUS ON MY PhD, I SHALL BE BACK END OF 2022. If you don't receive my mail, please DM on Instagram

OR

EMAIL: [email protected]

NOTE: Due to some glitch or something my entire profile was erased. I'm rewriting everything from what I can recollect but obviously I don't remember all the Forum Tags I had made a list of since 2019 (both outgoing and incoming) so I'm sorry about that. But if any of my current partners have a screenshot of my profile, it would be really helpful to fill in the gaps on my profile.

So I've always been in love with the idea of snailmail. I've sent plenty of them while I was at boarding school and I guess it's something that just stuck with me. Sometime back as I was contemplating about getting back into letter writing I came across a YouTube video which directed me here. SO HERE I AM!!!

I'm a Tibetan, living in India. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in Psychology and I'm not sure what trouble I've signed myself up for.

I love learning about different cultures and ethnicities, hence have found a special affinity for languages as well. I'm trying to learn how to speak in Korean and read/write in Tibetan. I have always been someone who likes planning and preparing for simple things and they may not always be visible but they exist. So Jan 2019 I began a bullet journal. I'm taking it slow and sticking to rapid logging. Now in 2021 I have a very basic planner log and separate journal for long form writing.

You can jump to the ABC section to know what to write or send me.

I am also open to personal swaps (containing what I'm looking for-mentioned below). Drop me a message if you are interested.

I am looking for

  • (pre-loved/new) rubber stamps & clear stamps ( vintage themed, botanical themed, retro and grunge)
  • Anything botanical themed(pressed flowers/leaves, stickers, diagrams, ephemera, illustrations etc)
  • Rubber pieces from a sheet (for stamp carving) any size will do
  • botanical diecuts (like flower with stems) branches and birds

NOTE:

  • I'm keeping a track of outgoing mail which is pretty slow to some countries but rather quick to others. Mostly >2 months: USA, Belgium, Australia,

Favorite Books

I've been trying to diversify my reading since 2020,hence trying other genres of books than what I naturally lean towards,which are

  • Crime/thriller/mystery
  • Sci-fi /fantasy

Edibles

  • Chocolates (prefer dark between 50%-75% cocoa) I am willing to try everything but please don't send anything with marshmallow, gummy bears, raisins, white chocolate

Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I liked the different varieties you included and the envelope flipbook was nicely put together. I will keep the stamps on the mail in my stamp album. So nice. It made my day. 🍀
Response: Looks like mail is now moving slightly faster between some countries. I tried my best to include things different from the first time but I couldn't recollect everything I sent previously. Glad to hear it has made your day. Its worth it in the end.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely , stickers and die cuts! Your envelope had split open on one side so I’m not sure if anything was lost. There was no note from you…..everything was fine though!!
Response: Oh my! I'm considering everything remained intact except for my note which slipped out. I'm glad it arrived though and even more grateful you remembered it was me 😊

Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I love every bit you included. They will be used in my journals. It was a smart idea to turn the envelope itself into a flipbook. I felt happy today 😊
Response: You know how relieved I am that it arrived safely. I myself discovered the envie flip book through a swap partner and I loved it so much that I decided to incorporate it myself. Glad that mails are moving between our countries and knowing you're happy brings a smile on my face.

Thank you for the fun book pages for Global Swap Tag! I’m glad I wrote this tag down because your envelope had split open and there was no note from you. I’m also glad it still arrived! All the book pages are here. 😊
