About: Well, I'm kind of an awkward mess at times. An organized chaos if you will. I'm six feet tall, tattooed, and very uncoordinated. I'm a walking pharmacy due to several psych disorders, but honestly, going through my life like I have has made me a better person and my issues just make me a bit more quirky! I love to be creative and I love to write long letters and really connect with people. I love long drives, sitting down for a good episode of a crime drama, getting coffee, using my typewriters, collecting, playing with my tortoise (yes, playing with him. He lives in my bedroom.), and finding new things to do. I love stationary and anything to do with mail! I also must admit, I adore Hello Kitty and anything cute and/or Japanese! I'm an odd one, that's for sure, but I'm a good person! Also, I enjoy sending little things in my letters. :)

Anything else you'd like to add? I'm an art therapy major, minoring in women's studies. I have one more semester of college, which is insane. I'm a perfectionist, and I care a lot about my studies. I don't really feel bound by any one location. I could see myself living in many places. I appear quiet and shy if you don't know me, but I'm really not. I'm introverted, observant and logical. I love curiosity. I often enjoy solitude. I've been through a lot with my family, and am very independent. Sometimes I might take a while to write back, because I get busy with school. But I’ll always write back. I feel most drawn to other outsiders and artists. I've been writing to pen pals since I was 15, and I can't imagine a life where I didn't look forward to letters in the mailbox.
Nothing is as exciting as mail love.
