Looking for penpals

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.

Back from Hiatus

I don't think I ever did anything with this community yet.

Hi, I've been a member for a while and I just moved to Georgia. What do I need to do to update addresses and actually start writing letters? I honestly haven't logged into livejournal in MONTHS and since I have a new baby, I have mommy brain. Someone help?

I love seeing new places and doing things randomly, one day I hope to travel to France..this is a huge dream for me. I use to pen pal but due to work and my mother's illnesses I stopped doing so much pen palling and crafting. I am slowly starting to get back into both.

Name: Maria

Email: lalayulia@yahoo.co.uk

Age: 27

Gender: female

Nationality: Finnish

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

Occupation: uni graduate/lazy bum/occasional sales assistant

Languages Spoken: English, Finnish, Swedish (Languages spoken fluently, that is. I like to think that I can also speak French and German, having studied both, but to be honest that's being a bit too optimistic...)

Religion: Atheist

Relationship Status: Taken

About Me: I am a Finnish girl living in New Zealand with my Kiwi boyfriend. I spent a few years travelling in Europe avoiding having to write my thesis (a.k.a. avoiding having to write my thesis), finally finished my thesis and, instead of doing something useful, relocated to Australia. After a year there I moved to Auckland, met my boyfriend and decided it was time to settle down. So now, since I actually have a permanent address, I can finally start penpalling again!

Main Interests:

General: Literature, History, Travelling, Food (I've been a vegetarian for 12 years), Music, Fashion, Animals, drinking tea, hanging out with my boyfriend who really is the most wonderful man that ever walked the earth [and I should know, I've done my fair share of research!(And to be honest, had come to the conclusion there was no such thing as "a wonderful man" before I met him)], sitting at home not doing very much at all, wondering whether I should start looking for a job soon, deciding that I'll start looking for a job first thing tomorrow, ignoring the whole idea of looking for a job and going to the pub instead

Music: The Smiths (!!!!), David Bowie, Kent, Håkan Hellström, Radiohead, Joy Division, Bob Dylan, Pixies, The Beatles, random Swedish stuff, 60's rock, 70's glam rock, 80's British alternative, some punk/new wave, 90's brit pop, some recent alternative/indie stuff (currently obsessively listening to Arcade Fire, Broken Bells, Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens) and so much more!

Books: I graduated in English literature so there's too many favourites to mention here, but The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and Catch-22 by Joseph Heller are definitely in my top 5. I also love reading non-fiction books, especially science or history.

Pen Pal Information:

How many pen pals do you have?: Haven't been able to write to anyone for a few years due to my vagabond ways but look forward to starting over, I've been penpalling for over 15 years

How many do you want?: 5-20

Do you want email pals?: No thanks, I prefer snail mail

Do you want snail-mail pen pals?: Yep

How long does it take you to reply to a letter?: It depends, sometimes I reply as soon as I get a letter, sometimes it can take me up to a month, but I do always write back eventually.

What gender would you like your pen pal to be? Doesn't matter

Age?: over 18

Long letters? I love long letter pals but it's not a requirement. I like to talk about everything, thoughts, feelings, the past, the future, what I'm currently reading and listening to, what's happening in my everyday life, what's happening in the world, pretty much whatever happens to be on my mind, sometimes that will be a lot, sometimes a little less, but I do tend to write more than a few pages.

Where would you like them to be from? Wherever.

If you'd like to write with me, drop me a line at lalayulia @ yahoo.co.uk and I'll send you my address!

Oh and I guess I should mention that I was in a relationship with another girl for 6 years (though always classed myself as straight with one exception) and will no doubt talk about it in my letters from time to time, so if you have a problem with same-sex relationships, it's probably not a good idea to write with me

Name: Rachel, or Rae if you prefer
Age: 19
Birthday: February 29th
Gender: Female
Orientation: Straight
Location: Seattle, WA for school, Portland, OR is home
Occupation: Student
Languages Spoken: English, beginner's French, beginner's Spanish
Relationship status: Committed

Interests: Reading, writing, shopping, getting dressed up for no reason, working out, nail polish, cooking, photography, travel, cars, coloring.

Music: Depending on my mood, I really will listen to just about anything. Rock, alternative, country, rap, hip hop, trance, ambient, classical. Lately I've been listening to a lot of folksy sounding artists like The Weepies (they're the seed for one of my Pandora stations; and yes, I'm very cool, lol). I love listening to The Dubliners, BRIER, and Mutefish because they all remind me of traveling in Ireland last summer, which was an amazing experience. Sampling list from my iPod: Breaking Benjamin, John Mayer, Rooney, Simon & Garfunkel, OneRepublic, MGMT, HIM, Hall & Oates, William Orbit, Sufjan Stevens, Rascal Flatts, Alice in Chains, Ludovico Einaudi...etc. I think you get the idea =) I love finding new music, making mix CDs, sharing music, finding out what other people's favorite music is, and all that good stuff.

Movies: I'm not, however, much of a movie person in that I have favorites. I like pretty much every movie I've ever seen, besides I Am Legend. The movie version freaked me out, but I did really like the book. Anyway, a few good movies off the top of my head: The Boondock Saints, The Little Mermaid, Amelie, Better Off Dead, Fern Gully (childhood favorite), Pulp Fiction, Indiana Jones.

TV: I love Psych, Supernatural, South Park, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Doctor Who (though I admit, I stopped watching after David Tennant left). I watch Bones and Lie to Me with my family.

Reading: I love to read and I also love my book collection. I just finished reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi for one of my classes. It's a graphic novel about the author's experiences growing up in Iran before/during/after the Iran-Iraq War. It did challenge a few of my preconceived notions about what life during that period would have been like. I've also read both of Khaled Hosseini's works and I really enjoyed them. It's definitely an interesting culture to read about. I would love to talk with anyone who enjoys reading, and maybe would like to send books back and forth. I have some ambitious reading plans for the summer =) A short list: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, perhaps followed by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? Also Choke by Chuck Palahniuk and maybe Ulysses by James Joyce if I don't get scared off by the sheer mass of it. I could go on about books for ages. I am an English major, after all! =)

Pen Pal Info
How many penpals do you have? None
How many do you want? Maybe 5 or so. I would like to get to know lots of people!
Do you want email pals? Sure!
Do you want snail-mail penpals? Yes.
How long are your letters? I've written decently long letters in the past.
How long does it take you to reply to a letter? I usually write back as soon as I receive it, though that may change if I have a ton of reading to do in a certain day or something. It shouldn't be more than a few days though.
Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Either! Both! =)
Age: How about 17-30? Outside that range, I'm not sure how much we'd have in common.
What are you looking for in a pen pal? I'm looking for someone who is interesting, who I can share my ideas with and who can basically be my letter-friend =) Someone genuine.
Where would you like them to be from? Anywhere. Preferably Europe, US, or Australia.
