01:55 am - letters please

My name is Andrea and I'm interested in a few long distance friends. I prefer letters by mail.

I recently moved from my downtown apartment in Portland to a house in a city forty-five minutes away that is much too big for me. I have a siamese cat and a little house bunny.

Movies: I like classic movies with Bette Davis, Wes Anderson, Lars Von Trier and horror films.

Books: The Sun Also Rises by Hemmingway is my favorite. I like Virginia Woolf, Simone de Beuvoir and Harry Potter. Right now I'm reading Wildwood.

Music: I have a love for Jenny Lewis. Lee Hazelwood, Dolly Parton, Leonard Cohen, and Serge Gainsbourg are some other favorites.

TV: The X FIles, Boardwalk Empire, Twin Peaks, The Fall, The Twilight Zone, It's Always Sunny, Curb Your Enthusiam, Eastbound and Down and Downtown Abbey are my tops.

Interests: Long baths, gin and tonics, smoking in my garden, naps, the ocean, leisure time, history and conspiracy theories. I'm a makeup artist that recently quit her job to focus on school. I'm a senior going for a Psych degree with a minor in Philosophy. I've been learning French and have started playing piano again. I'm twenty-six and have been with my husband for six years.

PEN PALS: I would rather write snail mail letters than email letters because I want to exercise the artistic side of me - also I feel handwritten stuff feels more personal.
So... I would like 2-3 pen pals, age 18 and up to immortal. I don't care about gender but would like to point out I only want to meet friends, I hope for a long-lasting friendship actually... But I won't push if someone only wants to be an acquaintance at best.

I write medium - long letters, write them as soon as I can but life can interfere - just so you know.

Hope you want to be my pen pal?
Current Mood: happyhappy

09:48 am
Name: Gauri
Age: 29
Gender: Female
Location: Australia

I'm a writer looking for other writers, or at least someone who can write a good letter, to write to. I love the idea of allowing a friendship to unfold over time, letter by letter. My ideal penpal is someone who would be interested in sharing thoughts, opinions, and the details of our evolving lives long-term, over a period of years. I realise that this kind of friendship isn't something you can engineer, but I hope that by stating my intentions up-front I'll at least be giving it a good try!

A little about me: I write fiction and poetry, and I'm also a naturopath (i.e. a practitioner of natural medicine). I live with my partner and our two cats, who I'm very fond of. I love young adult fiction, herbal tea, napping outdoors, picnics, the beach, hatha yoga, dancing (though I'm very bad at it), chocolate and cats. I'm dedicated to personal growth and I'm a very introspective person. I'm also a classic introvert.

I don't see much use in listing my favourite books, films or foods, because I personally don't find it all that useful in forming my idea of a person, but if you'd like to know those things, please let me know.

I love to receive long letters, handmade envelopes, mix CDs, stationary and art. I would like snail mail pen pals from any country. Nothing is as exciting as mail love. My only tattoo is an envelope with a heart on my left wrist. I've been writing to pen pals since I was 15, and I can't imagine it not being a part of my life. While I'm in school, it may sometimes take me months to respond to letters (although it’s often less), but I will always get back to you. I'd love to hear from you! My mailbox has been rather empty lately.
