About me

My name is Lindsey (pronouns are she/her), I'm 22 years old!

  • I'm studying to become a social worker, I am currently attending university to obtain my masters of social work (MSW) degree. I love talking about anything & everything social work - so feel free to ask questions or talk about things related to social work with me.

  • I've been sending happy mail via swap-bot for over four years now. It brings me lots of joy to receive mail from friends across the country and the world!

"It is very heartening to know that even when we get it wrong (i.e. being human) we can make it right with authenticity and kindness" - Irvin D. Yalom

Fun facts:

  • I’ve been getting into crochet a bit lately, I’m still in the very beginner stages though.

  • I love caring for house plants! I am nowhere near an expert, I would say that I am still in the newbie category when it comes to caring for plants. I have come to own quite the collection though, especially throughout the last few years.

  • I love writing to penpals, check out my Instagram (linked above) if you'd like to see some of the mail-art I create for them and some SB happy mail!

  • I love attending concerts & adore live music, the first show I ever attended was when I was only thirteen, it started a trend.

  • During my undergrad, I worked on campus at the library I worked there all 4 years (plus most summers in between) and I LOVED it! Libraries will always hold a special place in my heart.


Favorite movies & TV shows:

  • Pride and Prejudice (2005 version)
  • The Shawshank Redemption
  • The Kings Speech
  • The Wedding Singer
  • Love, Rosie
  • Seinfeld (my #1 show always!)
  • Everybody Loves Raymond
  • Home Improvement
  • Heartstopper (on netflix)
  • Ted Lasso (the best tv series I've seen in a LONG time!)

Favorite music:

  • U2 (I've been a huge fan of theirs since I was a kid!)
  • Harry Styles
  • The Beatles
  • Coldplay
  • The Killers

I have many other favorites and listen to a pretty wide range of artists within my favorite genres. 1980's new wave/rock/alternative rock will always have a special place in my heart.

  • tiny plain paper bits
  • horror/gory/gross anything
  • strong smells/smoke smells
  • glitter/confetti in envelopes

Other info:

  • I will try my best to add personal touches to my swaps, whether it’s something mentioned from your profile or a common interest or a cute sticker or two on your PC. I’m thankful for anything I receive through swap-bot.

  • I mark sent after I drop mail into the big blue postal boxes or put it in my mailbox in the morning.

  • If you happen to not receive a swap from me, be sure to message me and I will always be willing to resend!

  • I always send on time and make sure it has correct postage, but please understand that sometimes mail can get lost!

  • Be sure to let me know if there are any issues, and I will work hard to resolve them. I hope you'll do the same for me.

  • I will always be open to adjusting ratings if you message me and are willing to work things out. I know life gets in the way sometimes and no one is perfect, just please be open to talking about what happened and I will be happy to adjust my rating if I feel that is the right thing to do!

  • This site is above everything else supposed to spread joy and kindness through the act of sending physical mail, I want my account (especially) to be treating people with the same kindness I would also like to receive!

THANK YOU for taking the time to read my profile; happy swapping!

Comment: Thank you for the cheery card and cute swap cards! Hope you aren't getting clobbered with snow - so early this year!!
Response: Yay! Glad you enjoyed the card & swap cards!! We haven't had an insane amount of snow luckily, but in my opinion any amount of snow this early in the season is not great lol. I think we had around 4-6 inches a few days ago! But later this week it will be temps in the mid-40's so all of it will be gone soon enough!
