Hello there :-)

If you haven't received a swap from me or you are still waiting for a rating, please let me know! It's not in my intention to confuse, hurt or even betray my penpals! So just contact me and I will correct things, whenever a mistake might happen. I will also re-send the swap at once, if necessary.

In return, please do me the same favour and let me know if there are any problems on your side, like a delay in the send-date or lockdown or such things. I'm mostly rating generously, as long, as I can see you put some effort in your swap (for example: I love decorated envelopes XD). And even if this sometimes lack: Swapping is just a hobby and for fun and life can be too busy from time to time, so don't worry. The most important thing for both sides is to have fun.

About Me

A little bit about myself...

I'm Maxi, 32 years old and from Germany. So my mothertongue is German and I'm working to improve my English (while on the other hand I'm about to forget everything I've ever learned in French).

I'm single, have one older sister, but no children and I like to be aunt and babysit once in a while. :-)

I like to decorate my letters and put some goodies in and I'm also far more interested in letters, to be honest. The longer the letter, the better. ;-) I'm also okay with sticker flakes and the cutest or most beautiful always come to some extra box, where I put all the stuff I use for decorating my diary. g - Thanks to the second lockdown and the lack of other spare time activities I might started to get addiccted to stationary, stickers, Washi tapes and such things.

Favorite Music

I like Heavy Metal, Pagan, Steampunk und something called Neue Deutsche Härte (and from time to time songs from musicals or Disney). Some favourite singers/bands are:

  • ASP
  • Coppelius
  • Eisbrecher
  • Faun
  • Subway to Sally
  • Saltatio Mortis
  • Oomph!

My song recommendation of the month: "Loki" by Saltatio Mortis

Favorite Books

That's a lot! I'm a bookworm and love fiction, history novels, classics, murder mystery, thriller... almost anything, aside these typical "How to imprive your life"-books about how to be more hapy, more active, sleep better and so on and aside from love stories. Here is a short list of the latest highlights I've read:

  • "Das Salz der Erde" (Wolf) -> German novel/history
  • "Psychopathinnen" (Benecke) -> German book/crime
  • "Johnathan Strange & Mr Norell" (Clark)
  • "Osten Ard"-Saga (Tad Williams)
  • "Lord of the Rings" (Tolkien)
  • "Paradise Lost" (Milton)
  • "David Copperfield" (Dickens)
  • Oliver Twist" (Dickens)
  • "The count of Monte Christo" (Dumas)
  • "Northanger Abby" (Austen)
  • "Harry Potter 1-7" (Rowling)
  • Horror short stories, like "The Vampyre" by Polidori
  • the "Sherlock Holmes"-short stories by Doyle
  • "The war of the Flowers" (Williams) ...

I also love mangas! I read comics from time to time, too, but I always prefer mangas over it. My favourites are: - "Angel Sanctuary" (Yuki) - "Shaman King" (Takei) - "Pandora Hearts" (Mochizuki) - "The case study of Vanitas" (Mochizuki) - Sailor Moon" (Takeuchi -> It's the best!) - "That time I got reincarnated as a slime" (Fuse)

Favorite Movies

  • Disney-movies (especially the 90s movies like Mulan, The hunchback of Notre Dame, The Lion king, Aladin, but also others that are not as famous as these ones, like The fox and the hound, Brother Bear...)
  • How to train your dragon
  • Marvel (The Avengers, Spiderman, Guardians of the Galaxy, ...)
  • Harry Potter 1-8
  • The Prestige
  • Memoirs of a Geisha
  • Alice in Wonderland (Burton)
  • Detective Pikachu

Favorite Television

  • American Horror Story
  • Sherlock (BBC)
  • Game of Thrones

And cartoons and animes as well:

  • scarfs
  • jewellery
  • Webtoons
  • sightseeing tours

  • fruit tea (I drink it from time to time, too, especially as ice tea during the summer, but nonetheless prefer other tea over it.)
  • coffee (Never!)
  • plums
  • cherries
  • marzipan
  • sushi

  • summer (too hot)

  • always being surrounded by people

  • intolerance

  • frogs

  • toads

Good to know for swaps

I'm an easy-going person and even when I don't get exactly what I like, I will still give you a heart, when I can see you tried your best in a swap. Things I don't like, I will reuse in other swaps and I don't have any allergies you need to keep in mind.

I also don't care if you send whole sticker sheets or sheets you cut in half or single stickers. I like them all. I prefer PCs to be send naked (without an envelope), but I'm fine with one also. Only some highlights would be...

... Harry Potter: I like many characters, such as Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore, Malfoy and Snape. In terms of houses it highly depends an my daily mood: On good days I'm according to tests in Ravenclaw, but on cynic ones in Sliytherin.

... tea: I got a lot of chamomille tea lately, so I would prefer to have a break from it, because it will take some time to use it up. ^^°

... TV/book/movie-characters in general: I like Sherlock and Moriaty, Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto, Dipper and Bill, Steven universe and his mother Rose/pink diamond (but Spinell and White are cool, too), Aang and Zuko, Conan Edogawa, Luz and Amity and Eda, Spiderman and Loki, Batman and the Joker, Vanitas, Oz and Gil and many more. My favourite pokémon are bulbasaur, psyduck, Mew, Mewtwo and wooloo (yeah, I've been grown up with the first generation g).

Comment: Wow, mail is really slow! I think I'll just be grateful it's arriving, though. :) It's funny that you wrote about zombies - I randomly turned on a TV show today called "Zombie House Flipping" - haha! No real zombies in the show, but since I usually avoid zombies (they creep me out too much!!), its an interesting coincidence! Thanks for sharing!!
Comment: Thanks so much for sharing the story of Annelise Midiel! I think I've heard it before, and I actually don't' think I've seen the movie, but I did hear about the movie. That poor girl!

Comment: Thank you so much for the great swap. I loved learning a little bit about you and I love the notepapers, stickers, pc, and book pages. And I am boiling water now for the tea you sent! Aloha
Response: Oh wow, this swap went really fast to you! XD I'm glad it arrived safely and have a wonderful week. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the happy mail! It was nice to get something fun in the mail that was not a bill. Also, after reading over the books you have read, I think I am going to checkout Spy and Family. It looked like an interesting magna series to get into. Take care and keep on reading!
Response: Hello ^-^ Oh yes, spy x family is a cute story without too much hurt or tragic parts, but still some action and lots of comedy. Sometimes it's just nice to enjoy something harmless. XD Thanks for the heart.
