x-posted like crazy. >.>


Interests: I'm a gamer girl/epic nerd. XD I play World of Warcraft, Magic: The Gathering, Dungeon and Dragons (working on my own campaign), the Silent Hill series (PS2) and any other survival horror I can get my hands on. I write, mostly short stories. I'm working on a story based on my characters from World of Warcraft and a Steampunk-esque story that might get turned into a D&D campaign in the future. I sing. :) (I've never been told to be quiet because I sounded bad, but because I was singing too much. LOL!) I use a lot of 1337 speak as well as speak in it. I do a podcast with my husband & my best guy friend on World of Warcraft. I have an unhealthy obsession with zombies and witches. As well as anime. I've dabbled in photography, but I don't have a great camera, so I just oggle at other people's work. I scrapbook. And I read like a fiend. A book a week if I’m lucky! XD

Music: When I say I listen to just about everything, I really do listen to just about everything. I do NOT like foreign music as much as I enjoy American/English singers. (I like to be able to sing along with them easily.) Japanese is about the only foreign music I personally enjoy. I was forced in high school and college to sing Italian, but it was pretty, so I didn't suffer much. :) What's on my current playlist? Dead by April, Seether, Boa, MC Chris, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Snow Patrol, Ten Years, Theory of a Deadman, Jason Mraz, Summergale (WoW parodies <3), Adele, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Bleach Beginning and Ending Songs, Three Days Grace, Katy Perry, Journey, Bad Religion, Paramore, Glee, Theory of a Deadman, Gavin DeGraw, Flyleaf, Stone Sour, Finger Eleven, Missy Higgins, Panic! at the Disco, Anarbor, Trapt, Tool, 30 Seconds to Mars, Sara Bareilles, James Taylor, P!nk, Linkin Park, Christina Perri, Kelly Clarkson… and so many others!

“Some people believe in God, I believe in music. Some people pray, I turn up the radio…” – 30 Seconds to Mars – Closer to the Edge (video)

Books: Orly? I have to write it all? :P The ones I'm about to list are off the top of my head, but they certainly are NOT the only favorites I have. :) The Infernal Devices Trilogy & The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, Harry Potter series, Buffy/Angel series, Invisible Monsters, Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman, Cobra Event by Richard Preston, 1984 by George Orwell, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, But I Was a Teenage Fairy, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, The Mayfair Trilogy by Anne Rice, The Resident Evil series by S.D. Perry, Waking Up Screaming by H. P. Lovecraft (especially The Shadow over Innsmouth and Herbert West -- Reanimator), anything by Victoria Holt, The Hitchhikers series by Douglas Adams, The Lincoln Rhymes & Katheryn Dance series by Jeffery Deaver, Stranger in a Strange Land by Heinlein, the many World of Warcraft books, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, the Drizzt series by R.A. Salvatore… and so many others!

TV: I don't watch TV enough to catch series while they are showing in their appropriate times BUT! I do have many box sets of series I do enjoy: Veronica Mars, Firefly, CSI, CSI: NY, Supernatural, Charmed, Bones, Dexter, House, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Gilmore Girls, Glee, The Walking Dead, the Star Trek series, The Dresden Files! :)

Movies: Also, like books, I'm a movie buff, these are a lot of my all-time favorites but not ALL of them. :) Momento, Steel Magnolias, Center Stage, Donnie Darko, The Matrix series, The Harry Potter series, The Little Mermaid, Mulan, Spirited Away, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Underworld and Underworld: Evolutions, Silent Hill & Silent Hill: Revelations, The Birdcage, the Resident Evil series, The Fast and the Furious and TFATF: Tokyo Drift, Constantine, RENT, Clerks and Clerks 2, Usual Suspects, Bolt, Zach and Miri Make A Porno, Juno, Phantom of the Opera, Serenity, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Evil Dead series, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny, Look Who's Talking series (I have a girl-boner for John Travolta), Warm Bodies, Sister Act 2, Casper... Name some and I'm sure I've seen it. :)

About Me: Just a little, because the letters are where the depth goes. I live in the South. I grew up in Arkansas, where I spent most of my time growing up. December ‘09 I moved to Alabama to live with my boyfriend and his son. We married in November ’11. I'm a recluse, but once you get past the "prologue" of my life, you can NOT get me to shut up. :) I'm OCD and I have too many interests for any healthy person. Music makes or breaks my day. I'm very intelligent and can act like a my 9 year old "step-son" in the blink of an eye. I'm a gamer girl geek. I am certainly not your average American girl that I can promise you.


Penpal Info

How many penpals do you have? None... yet. *hopeful* XD
How many do you want? As many as I can find that don't mind writing to a nerd. :)
Do you want email pals? Not particularly. But I take what I can get. :D
Do you want snailmail penpals? YES!, omg. XD
How long are your letters? Depends on the content I'm including. Could be a couple of sentences or a couple of pages.
Do you hand-write or type? Handwritten unless I found a really pretty font I want to show off, but that's a rarity.
How long does it take you to reply to a letter? Immediately to a week, depending on how busy I get at work.
Would you like your penpal to be male or female? I have no gender preference.
Age: No preference, again. There are 14 year olds that are more mature than 30 year olds I know. :)
Where would you like them to be from? I'm from the South. I have only lived in the South (for now). I have had long distance friends from England and Ireland, but anywhere as long as they like to write. :)
