About Me

PLEASE READ: *If you're sending me a postcard, I would really appreciate putting your state/country on there somewhere. I like to organize my postcards by area. Thank you!

I am a recently graduated college student in California, U.S. studying Fashion Design. I currently work as a seamstress and one day hope to become a costume designer for film and T.V. I have two dogs, one Shiba Inu and one Chihuahua.

I can be a really shy person and I find it harder to go outside my friend zone sometimes, but I do like to try new things and put myself out there to make new friends!

You can always get me talking if you mention your favorite video games or TV series! Or maybe the newest book you've read or place you've traveled to!

Fun Fact: I have never been on a plane because I have an intense, irrational fear of crashing and being in the air. My ultimate goal to to have the courage to fly to Japan.

HOBBIES: - Postcrossing - Kawaii journaling - Disney pin, pressed pennies, stamp and Pokemon card collecting - Sewing - Reading - Playing video games

Swap Note

I go to work close to a post office, so usually after work I will go and drop off any outgoing mail. However, since I get off of work later in the evening, I typically get to my post office 30 minutes before closing. Keep this in mind when receiving things from me! I will mark as sent as soon as I drop swaps off, but they may not begin processing until the next day.

Also, please message me if you feel like my swap got lost in the mail or you haven't received it. I know I am new, but I would rather resend due to lost mail rather than get a low rating that prevents me from participating in more swaps in the future!

Thank you!

Personal Likes

Video Games - I love RPG, adventure, simulation, and visual novel games! I've been playing since my first Game Boy Advanced at 6 years old. I mostly have Nintendo systems, although I do have a PSvita. If you want to add me on the 3DS or Switch, just ask for my friend code! You can find some of my favorite games down below!

Fairies - I've been obsessed with fairies after reading so many fairy tale books over the years. Some of my favorites are Tithe and the Iron Fey series. As a costume designer (in training) I love to visualize what fairies might wear.

Reading - I'm an avid reader when I'm not busy with school. I mostly gravitate towards young adult/fantasy novels but I want to branch out to other types of fiction. Some of my favorite books are also listed down below.

Shiba Inus - This dog breed has captured my heart. I got my first Shiba at age 10 and I knew I would always want this type of dog in my life. Oddly enough I named him Shiba. He's very typical for his breed: loud howling, stubborn personality, and fierce protector.

Anime - I've been watching anime almost all my life, starting with Pokemon and Sailor Moon. I try to keep up with current seasons and I at least try to watch one new anime per season. If you want to know what types of anime I watch you can check out my anime list: https://myanimelist.net/animelist/kgomez101

Stationary - I recently started getting into collecting kawaii stickers and washi tape. I mainly use them in a daily journal I have, and I would love to trade and exchange them with people all around the world! I love decorating my journal and I love decorating snail mail as well.

Sewing - This is a big part of my major (obviously) but I just love the process of creating things. I am most satisfied when I've finished a costume and I can look back at all the hard work I've done. It is definitely a frustrating hobby but it's rewarding.

Tea - Chamomile, Jasmine, and Rose teas are my favorite. I would love to try teas from around the world.

Disney/Pin Trading - I love going to Disneyland and as cliche as it is, I truly believe it's a magical and happy place. One day I want to be an annual passholder at Disneyland and visit Tokyo Disney one day! My favorite Disney movies/characters include Star Wars, The Little Mermaid, Aurora, Mulan, Toy Story, Goofy, Monsters INC,WALL-E, The Incredibles and more!

Museums/Art Exhibits: I always love visiting my local museums. I love everything to paintings, sculptures, textiles, cultural exhibits, fossils, historical and modern art, basically everything!

Comment: I got your letter today. Looks like it took over 3 weeks. The postal system is not very reliable anymore. Your HK stationary is adorable. I think I have seen Celeste advertised on the Switch game store. I’m playing ACNH every day for a year + LOL! Thank you for the cute extras. I think Shine girls kawaii stuff is adorable. I recently got a planner sticker pad from Michaels craft store of that artist. She also sells through Etsy. Take Care!

Comment: Thank you for the card! I feel exactly the same way about Sleeping Beauty. The first few scenes are just art, IMHO. Congratulations on finishing your hoodie, that's amazing! :-) I hope you're doing well and staying safe!

One of my favorite quotes: ''A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you expect it to be. '' which to me means being less critical, more open minded, and finding the beauty in things- even if they aren't done the way i would have done them. :) -just jada profile quote swap #7

Have a fabulous day! I am not too far away, in Bakersfield! Loving our weather, dreading the summer heat. Spring is wonderful though. -=EO

There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

(I also possess this flaw...i say flaw because there are few people in this world who I have found who can love me back as deeply )
