6:58 pm - Looking for a fun snail-mail pal

Name: You can call me Miaulin, Rowana, or MaKaylah. Or anything else, really. :D
Age: 18
Religion: Christian, Baptist to be specific.
Gender: Female
Location: Selma, AL
Occupation: Still a student, also novelist.
Languages Spoken: English, some Khuzdul and Sindarin ;)
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.
Music: A huge variety that includes a lot of movie soundtracks.
Books: anything Tolkien or Charles Dickens. Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, The Name of the Wind, Ranger's Apprentice, Divergent, lots more.
TV: Doctor Who, Fullmetal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic!, Sherlock, Merlin, Covert Affairs, Criminal Minds, White Collar, Spice and Wolf, sometimes Downton Abbey
Movies: pretty much anything by Disney! How to Train Your Dragon, Studio Ghibli, The Last Samurai, The Bourne series, Mission Impossible, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, The Lego Movie, Harry Potter

How many penpals do you have?: unless my Facebook friends from other states count, none yet.
How many pen pals do you want?: As many as actually want to talk to me.
How long are your letters?: As long as you like. I do better replying to things for a while, but once we've gotten to know each other more I can be chatty enough to irritate a little.
Do you hand-write or type?: Either one! My own handwriting can be awful sometimes, so I do understand if you'd rather type.
What age would you like your pen pal to be?: At least around seventeen or eighteen, but I don't care how much older.
Would you like them to be male or female?: either
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 :)

2:13 pm - Looking for a snail mail pen pal. :)


Age: 23
Birthday: 21.11. / Scorpio
Gender: Female
Location: Slovenia
Occupation: Student/Unemployed
Relationship status: Long Term Relationship

Languages spoken: Slovenian, English
Languages somewhat understood: A bit of German, Croatian/Serbian, the rest of Balkan languages.
Languages interested in and willing to learn: Spanish, Japanese, etc.

Interests: Animation of any kind, cartoons and anime, movies and music, history and radical critical analysis of current world system, writing books/fanfiction and reading them, spirituality/magic/taboo/mystery/paranormal, travelling the world and experiencing 'different culinary thingies', researching magical creatures and foreign mites, love to analyse human mind, love to give out little presents and make people happy and content.

Favorite movies: From Bram Stoker's Dracula - The Last Samurai - The Last of the Mohicans - Avatar - Harry Potter - LOTR - Hobbit - Hunger Games - Pompeii - Gladiator - Troy - Schindler's List - Gangs of New York - Titanic - Catch me if you can - Splice - Spirited away (All Studio Ghibli movies) - The girl who leapt trough time - Millennium Actress - ... ... ...

Favorite reading material: Manga or webtoons like: Naruto, Tower of God, Shingeki no Kyojin or better known Attack on Titan, Noblesse... Books and fanfictions on: Harry Potter, Labyrinth, Alien vs. Predator, Child Thief (am a steadfast fan of BROM), Hobbit, LOTR, ... ... ...

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.

Also, we don't have to have everything in common. If you like and accept me you can write me,
I don't mind a good debate and difference in opinion.

Hope you want to be my pen pal?

current mood: happy

I'm looking for penpals again. I'm not looking for someone who will write once, I'm looking for someone who will care. Because I will.

Male, female, not bothered. Age, again, not bothered.

Long letters, birthday and Christmas presents, stationery swaps, postcard swaps... All possible.

Please PM me if interested. I look forward to hearing from you.

8:50 pm - Looking for new pen pals :)

It seems I've lost about a third of my pen pals during this past year or so and because of that I am looking for a few new pen pals.

-Name: Lene
-Age: 28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)
-Location: Odense, Denmark
-Occupation: Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.

-Main interests: penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)

-What genres of music are you into? My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.

-Favorite books: I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living

-Favorite movies: The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.

-Describe your ideal penpal: My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)

-What age do you want them to be? I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)
-What sex do you want them to be? Either
-What country do you want them to be from? Anywhere, really. :)

3:14 pm - Penpals: Engage!

Name: Teresa
Age: 23
Birthday: July 14th
Gender: Female
Location: Warrensburg, Missouri
Occupation: Copy & Print Specialist at Office Depot (spiffy title, huh? xP)
Language: English
Email: tbeeding07@gmail.com

About me: I consider myself to be an average woman with a lot of luck on her side. I am a huge nerd - I cosplay as Princess Peach at a few cons each year, I'm addicted to video games and card games (mainly Super Mario Bros and Yugioh), and I cry during movies like Beauty and the Beast and Return of the Jedi. I'm also a black belt in Taekwondo and an MMA fighter, which is contradictory to everything I just said about myself, I guess lol. I'm originally from Sacramento, California (born and raised there), but I moved to Kansas City about 6 years ago. From there, I moved to Hole-In-Wall, Missouri (aka Warrensburg) to be with the love of my life, and things have been looking up for me ever since ^.^

Music: Oh, a little bit of everything. Mainly I listen to mainstream pop and whatnot, but I always have a soft spot in my heart for blues and jazz.

Films/TV Shows: Hah, umm...there's a lot in this category. While I don't watch a lot of TV, I'm currently addicted to the Olympics. Some of my favorite shows are Sherlock, Big Bang Theory, and Family Guy. As for movies, that list is so vast that it would take years to write. But my top 3 favorite movies are Star Wars, The Blues Brothers, and Ghostbusters.

Books: Hands down, my favorite series of all time is Sherlock Holmes. I've read every single Sherlock Holmes book I have found to purchase, and am constantly on the hunt for more. However, I've taken a break from it *le gasp* to star a new series - the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. The unfortunately short TV series "Legend of the Seeker" was based off Sword of Truth - if you haven't seen or heard of Legend of the Seeker, I HIGHGLY recommend it to you.

PenPal Information:

How many do you have? I used to have a handful, but currently I only have 1 active one.

How many do you want? As many as my budget will allow - I like sending small gift packages and such along with my letters sometimes. It gives penpalism (now a word) more awesome.

E-mail or snail mail? Snail Mail, please.

How long are your letters? At least 2 pages - sometimes I've gotten up to 15 pages. I'm a long-winded writer, so any letter you get from me will be huge, don't worry.

How long does it take you to reply to a letter? Since I literally live next door to a post office, I can usually reply the same day or receiving your letter.

Handwritten or typed? Handwritten, always.

Gender preference: Any, but females seem to have more to say xP

Age preference: I don't really have one, but for the sake of discussion let's go 18+

Where? Anywhere, especially overseas!

What are you looking for in a penpal? Similar interests, someone to talk to and share the little gems in life with, and someone to send mail to. God knows the USPS needs customers :D

~*Email or comment if you want to be fwends!*~

current mood: accomplished

I put anything that sounds decent there but all are questionable until watched. I love anything gypsy, love incense, candles, tarot, the moon, tea. I used to study Paganism and even though I am no longer, it still has a place in my heart. I plan to make "faerie" houses to place into the woods when they're clean, not that I believe in them... seems like it'd be fun. I can be a tad unusual.

3:07 pm - Intro.

I just recently abandoned a LiveJournal I had for over ten years in order to get a fresh start. I'm trying to pursue more of my interests more actively, and I'm hoping to use my new LJ as a way of doing so: blogging every day, chronicling my progress, and being active in communities.

I used to penpal, but life and crippling attention-deficit got in the way. I'm 29 years old and married, have a nice apartment and what would be considered a decent job, and yet I still feel restless (though not unhappy). I work in academia, Special Education in particular, though I'm beginning to have doubts about being a teacher (I want to work with youth, but I don't know if a traditional classroom is where I want to be. It could just be that after six years in the field, I'm ready to explore other options).

I live in Massachusetts, about 30 miles outside of Boston, and don't get into the city nearly as often as I'd like.

I like to write, when I can sustain the attention for long enough. Mostly poetry - I love poetry in form, sestinas and sonnets are my favorites - and flash fiction vignettes. I read, though I tend to go through phases when I'm either not reading at all or blazing through books. I will read basically anything, though Terry Pratchett is probably my favorite author. I adore the Harry Potter books, and loved Stephen King's The Dark Tower series until the end made me hurl my book across the room. I <3 Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, and Jhumpa Lahiri. Right now I'm reading Game of Thrones.

I cook, crochet, and do paper crafts -- right now I'm just starting to get into making "junk books;" I just finished one for Margaret Atwood's "you fit into me" and am doing one for William Carlos William's "Red Wheelbarrow." I'm on Fiverr.com, and the service I offer is anonymous, handmade "feel-good" cards - I always send stickers or quote cards or decorative magnets or bags of tea, as well.

I'm a feminist, pro-choice, and vocally GLBTQ supportive, but generally non-political. I am a theist (Christian), though my religion as such does not play a huge part in my life - I believe the heart of Christianity is love and tolerance, not judgment or discrimination, and though I am not an "active" or vocal Christian, I try to live my life according to those edicts.

I am a ridiculous fangirl, my biggest fandoms at the moment being Harry Potter (I have stuck with Harry until the very end), Doctor Who, and BBC's Sherlock (I am in love with Benedict Cumberbatch). I love going to conventions, though I rarely get to; the last one I attended was a multifandomn slash con in Boston - oh, yeah, I am a big slash fan.

I'd like a penpal who shares at least a few of my interests, and I would like them to be over 21, but beyond that, I am pretty open.
