UPDATE 07/2023: Hello Everyone! After a little hiatus from Swapbot, I am finally getting back into it and doing swaps whenever time allows! I have also added some updates to my profile to reflect my current preferences. Looking forward to swapping again and having my mailbox full of happy mail =)
Hello! Welcome to my page! My name is Manpreet from Canada. I am a nursing school student, and Swapbot is one of my hobbies that I enjoy doing whenever I have some extra time. I love crafting, painting, digital art, reading, and collecting postcards. I played competitive frisbee (ultimate) for a few years but had to stop due to the pandemic. I enjoy spending time with my blue-nosed pitbull, Denzel, and have one furry angel in heaven, named Diesel (profile pic). I started my Swapbot account to collect postcards, which I have been collecting for 12+ years now! I first started collecting through a school program, as well as Facebook groups, but have now progressed to using sites like Swapbot and Postcrossing! I have come across so many lovely people here, and it is so exciting that we are all able to come together to share our love for snail mail!
Listening to music is one of my favourite pastimes! Finding new songs and curating new Spotify playlists has become one of my obsessions! I usually listen to a variety of different genres of music, but my all-time favourites would have to be: • Rap • R&B • Punjabi • Bollywood music •
In terms of artists that I enjoy listening to, there are so many. To name a few:
• Jhene Aiko
• Big Sean
• Cardi B
• Taylor Swift
• Summer Walker
• J Cole
If you are ever in need of a writing prompt on a postcard or letter, recommend me some songs you think I would like. Or, just let me know what you have currently been listening to!
Reading is one of my favourite hobbies! I am an avid reader, and spend a lot of time on Goodreads looking for books to add to my TBR! My favourite genres of books are as follows:
• Dark Romance
• Young Adult
• New Adult
• Psychological Thrillers
I am ALWAYS looking for book recommendations! If you can add your favourite book on a postcard or note that would be awesome! If not, feel free to even send me a message with some books you think I would enjoy - I love talking books!
I will be the first to admit that I prefer TV series compared to movies, but nonetheless, I have a list of some movies that I have really enjoyed!
I am a massive Disney fan, so here are some of my favourite Disney and/or animated films:
• Cinderella (1950)
• Coco (2017)
• Inside Out (2015)
• Up (2009)
• Cruella (2021)
• Frozen (2013)
My favourite live actions movies:
• Mean Girls (2004)
• A Cinderella Story (2004)
• Clueless (1995)
• The Parent Trap (1998)
• The Home Alone series
I absolutely LOVE binge watching Netflix, so here are a few of my favourite series:
• Gossip Girl (my #1 fav)
• The Office
• The Society
• Brooklyn Nine-Nine
• Schitts Creek
• Jane the Virgin
• The Mindy Project
• The Fosters
My interests and things that I enjoy swapping are:
• Washi tapes
I am always looking for "postcard penpals" and direct swaps - so if you are interested please reach out to me!
I am a huge collector of postcards! If you need inspiration on what to send me here is a list:
• Disney, Universal Studios, Pixar, Warner Bros Studios
• Postcrossing Meet-up cards
• Map cards (especially illustrated)
• Starbucks or anything coffee/beverage related
• Animals (flamingos, monkeys, dolphins, cows, pigs)
• Dogs (especially pitbulls)
• City views (especially night views)
• Healthcare related (medicine, nursing, science, etc.)
• Illustration postcards (kawaii, cartoons, animation)
• Botanical (anything floral-themed)
• Castles (and other famous buildings and historical monuments
• Beaches, sunsets, sunrises, promenades
• Vintage, linen, retro, diners
• Neon Signs
• Food and dessert
• Make-up, beauty, models
• Magazines (Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, etc)
• Fairs and festivals (food, amusement attractions, roller coasters, etc.)
• National Parks
• Music (vinyl records, album covers, my fave singers, etc.)
• Travel posters
• Gems and crystals
• Books (bibliophile postcard box)
• Mail-related (post office, mailman, mailboxes)
• Cars (especially old cars and Corvettes)
• Maxi Cards
• Postal love (Greetings from...)
If you don't have these themes in your stash - not a worry. Send me anything you love, and I'll love it just as much.
My favourite colours are pink and green, but here are my favourite shades in general:
• Pink (pastel, mauve, dusty rose)
• Purple (lilac, lavender)
• Yellow (muted tones, khaki)
• Green (mint green, pistachio)
• Blue (periwinkle, turquoise, baby blue)
I am honestly not super picky, and I appreciate anything that you will send me! However, please try and refrain from free/ad cards, handmade (unless swaps allow it), as well as anything vulgar and related to violence.
I put a lot of heart and effort into all of my swaps. I rate all my swaps on the day that I receive them - no exceptions. I would love for you all to please do the same. If you have not received a swap from me well after the swap deadline, reach out to me and I am more than willing to resend!! I will never give a low rating until I have contacted you and tried to mediate the situation - please do the same.
Just to clear any confusion regarding cancellation dates on letters - I mark my items sent after I have placed them in the mailbox.
Since the pandemic, I have noticed that postal services are more slow here in Canada. Please be patient! I am always on time to send.
Thank you and Happy Swapping!!
