1/6/22: I now have 100 5 ratings! My favorite types of swaps are: written and stamped postcards, traveling postcards, playing card swaps, birthday cards (February), Christmas cards, and some electronic swaps.
12/30/21: When am I no longer a newbie? I'm loving all the swaps so far and still finding exciting new ones!
11/18/21: I am new on this website as I just got a PO box for the first time. I am excited to get some swaps under my belt!
Hello! My name is Sarah, welcome to my profile!
I am currently in grad school working on my PhD.
I am a vegetarian: I do eat dairy and eggs but I do not eat meat or seafood.
I love tea but I don't drink caffeine.
I volunteer every holiday season with the Angel Card Project (link above). I send out cards to people who were nominated by their loved ones to receive some holiday cheer in the mail! My goal for 2022 is to send cards to the whole list, which would likely mean sending nearly a thousand cards. So, I've started working on them already lol.
Update 12/19/22: I did not meet my goal of sending cards to the entire list, but I did send out 75 cards. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me supplies, it all got used! The goal for next year will be 100 cards!
To that end, I would be more than happy to take off your hands any of the following you are wanting to get rid of:
Greeting cards (Christmas, Hanukah, Solstice, New Years, Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, etc)
Greeting card sized envelopes
Holiday themed postcards
Holiday themed stickers
Holiday themed washi tape
Holiday themed coloring pages, word searches, crossword puzzles, etc
Thanks for reading!
My favorite music lies somewhere between rock and roll and hip hop. Favorite bands include Fun, Evanessence, and Imagine Dragons.
I am also partial to show tunes, my favorite musicals are Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, and many classic Disney movies.
I don't read as much as I would like, but when I do it's generally young adult fiction, romance novels, or comedy.
Although, in a completely different genre, I recently really enjoyed Motherhood by Sheila Heti, a literary novel exploring the decision whether or not to have children.
I love kids' movies, superhero movies, and comedies. Marvel Cinematic Universe is always a winner for me. I think my favorite MCU hero is Peter Quill.
Update: One of my New Years resolutions for 2022 is to watch the entirety of the MCU in release order, so I'll let you know how that goes!
Lately I have been playing a ton of Pokemon Go, I like that it forces me to go outside and has a strong collecting element. Message me for my friend code!
I also play The Sims 4! I’ve been playing the sims since I was a teenager. I love playing fan-created challenges and making up my own.
TV shows I very much enjoy(ed):
Avatar The Last Airbender
Zoey's Infinite Playlist
7 Days Out
I knit, mostly teddy bears for the Mother Bear Project. I sometimes like adult coloring books. Other than that, I'm not very crafty.
I don't currently have any pets but I am an animal lover! Particularly fish and birds.
Playing cards - Themes I collect: candy, cruise ships, dogs, cats, casinos, Disney, countries, fish, birds, states, sea shells, and movies.
Pokemon (my favorite Pokemon is Sableye; message me for my Pokemon Go friend code!)
Fish (the more colorful the better)
