02:53 pm - Friendship Books, Label Bags, Friendship Sheets, Goodie Bags, etc etc etc
Hello my friends!  My name is Stephanie and I am looking to pass on some Friendship Book, Sheets, Label Bags, etc, to someone who actively uses and passes them.  I have swapped many of these via Swap-Bot, which is also a fun way to swap.

I have am also interesting in pen palling, if anyone is also interested in a letter swap!  I am a vegan and spend a lot of time outdoors.  I also have a cat named Myrtle whom I spend a lot of time with on a regular basis.  I like to write and travel, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy working in a hotel due to the travel discounts.  I am 32 years of age and was born on Mothers Day (May 12) in 1985.  I have a huge vinyl collection.  I also spend a lot of time in libraries and bookstores.  I am a bourbon and red wine drinker.

I am only looking for penpals that are female and over the age of 21.

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.

Languages Spoken: English
Looking for: Somebody to talk to, a friend, anything, really.
E-mail Address: I can be reached at rangerflynnrider@yahoo.com
Do you want new livejournal friends?: I don't mind, though there's nothing in my journal yet.

Hobbies/Interests: Writing, reading, fandom-ing. I play the violin rather poorly at present but intend to improve. Art, cooking, drawing...really, I'm interested in most things even if they aren't my actual hobbies.

What age would you like your pen pal to be?: At least around seventeen or eighteen, but I don't care how much older.

Where would you like them to be from: It doesn't matter to me :D

Other: I can be a bit odd for the first couple of replies, and would prefer to be written first- otherwise I'll never work up the nerve to write- and I also like to send small gifts to my friends, usually crocheted hats or scarves, or drawings if you wouldn't object to my doing so.

Mostly I've just been a bit lonely and would love to have letters in the mailbox for once :)

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.
