About Me

UPDATE: June 2023 I kind of put everything to one side for a few weeks while finishing off my uni assessment for the term, so I am a bit behind in rating swaps. I'm going to try and get caught up this week, and sort out my study to make sure I haven't missed any, and have replied to all my penpals. My apologies for the delay. I really do appreciate all the letters people send me.

Hello! I have always loved writing letters and getting things in the mail other than bills, which is why I joined Swapbot in 2020. I live in Australia and enjoy reading, creative writing, drawing and gardening. I'm vegan and neurodivergent. I love animals, even the creepy crawly ones. I like horror movies and 80s fashion.

ART- I love reading zines, though I have only made a couple so far. I have been enjoying making some ATCs. So far I mostly hand draw them but I want to practice some other techniques. I started an art journal in 2021 and am learning some mixed media techniques (got a gelli plate, having some fun!). I appreciate handmade paper, stamps and ephemera I could use for my journal. I'm also learning to use watercolours, so anything related to that would also be great.I also do a bit of embroidery. I'm not very good at it, but it keeps my hands busy.

Likes/Interests- Animals (dogs, cats, spiders, that weird lizard that shoots blood out of its eyes...) gardening Movies - horror, the odd rom-com, 80s movies zombies vampires bats 80s fashion K-Pop- I'm new to this, but I love BTS and Blackpink folk punk ska Cloth patches/badges- I sew them onto my jacket. Chocolate Weird earrings (some of my favourites that I have include a pair made from human teeth and some shaped like miniature toasters). Wire wrapped jewellery plushies two headed cats sci fi fantasy novels cryptids Moomins Harry Potter Soviet memorabilia tea Aussie hip hop Skepticism Creative writing

Dislikes- Misogyny, homophobia and racism Right wing politics Animal cruelty Depictions of dead animals or stuff about hunting Pseudoscience Mariah Carey (just her music, not her as a person) Coca Cola

Tea- I'm not a fan of chamomile, fennel or liquorice teas (I HATE liquorice), but I love any black tea, green tea, chai, herbal or fruity teas. I can't have dairy.

Favorite Books

Jane Austen (Persuasion is my favourite). Fantasy- Ursula Le Guin, The Hobbit Kurt Vonnegut Sci fi JM Redmann Romance- Molly Harper, Stacia Kane, contemporary rom coms, some historical. Agatha Christie Terry Pratchett Douglas Adams

Favorite Television

The Magicians, Farscape, She Ra, Owl House, Xena Warrior Princess, My LIttle Pony Friendship is Magic, How to Get Away With Murder, Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, The Expanse, Altered Carbon, Star Trek Voyager, Preacher, The 100, No Offense, Elementary, Offspring, Justified, The Good Place, Brooklyn 99, K-Drama (Hotel Del Luna, It's Okay To Not Be Okay, Sweet Home, Sweet Home, Start Up, Mystic Pop Up Bar...)

Favorite Movies

The Descent, Practical Magic, Triangle, Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Hocus Pocus, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2016, Moon, Bladerunner, Always Be My Maybe, One for the Money, Wonder Woman, The Fast and the Furious series, Ghost in the Shell.

Postcards

LIKES: Cards with animals, spiders, pictures of places (landscapes, buildings), K-Pop, Star Wars, Moomin, Soviet cards, vintage cards (even better if they've been written on), rainbows, bright colours. Lenticular cards. Home made is cool.

DISLIKES: Anything religious, ad cards

Stickers

Scratch and Sniff stickers.Anything with rainbows, sparkly stuff, animals, plants, mushrooms, fairies, goblins unicorns, My Little Pony, K-Pop, Star Wars, cryptids, zombies, Neurodiversity pride stuff. My favourite colour is purple.

Stamps

I recently started collecting stamps. I like used stamps from around the world, but especially from Russia, and any with pictures of birds, insects, animals, Moomins and cartoon characters.

Comment: Thanks for the list. I bought M3GAN a few months back when Redbox had a sale on used DVDs. I haven't watched it yet. lol I'm bad that way. It's probably a good thing I bought it rather than rented it. I think the thing I find the scariest is M3GAN reminds me of the Olsen twins.

Comment: Thank you for the amazing stickers ! Is it possible to have only one favorite dinosaure ?? I guess my all time favorites would be the Pachycephalosaurus cause they have a funny head, and the Compsognathus because they're so small, but I love them all really ! And yes, chickens are just tiny dinosaurs ! (Your drawings are just amazing !) I really loved your letter but I'm so bad at penpaling I can't promise you anything ! I will try to answer some day tho ! Have a wonderful day and stay hydrated !
Response: You're welcome. :)
