Name: You can call me Amelia here, real name available when letter-writing.

Age: 32

Location: Helsinki, Finland

How do you identify?: I used to identify as bisexual, but I've started suspecting I swing rather more to the lesbian end of the spectrum than I've realised, though it can be hard to say just how much more. Female, born so and identifying as such. I'm still more likely to say "girl" than "woman" about myself.

Interests/hobbies: There are ever so many! I love to read, and I adore writing, especially creative writing (mainly prose with occasional dabs at poetry and dreams about writing plays and musicals) but also any other form of putting thoughts and feelings into words. I find the world a terribly interesting place, and am fascinated by a huge amount of things, with a particular interest in history, sciences, and just observing the world and people and thinking about life. I'm quite into languages and travelling. I also love spending time out in the nature, though as I live in the city that most often means parks and small-ish bits of forest. I adore theatre and have been known to travel to other countries to see a particular musical production. I'm a tea addict. I love crocheting, though lately it's often been limited to looking at pretty patterns or starting things I don't finish. I'm also interested in environmental issues, feminism and queer issues. I love animals, but don't have any of my own at the moment.

Favourite books: There are a ton, but some favourites include books by L.M. Montgomery (especially the Emily books), Jane Austen, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Sarah Waters, Terry Pratchett, Gail Carriger, the Harry Potter books, The Count of Monte Cristo, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, the Mary Poppins books, The Secret Garden, the Moomin books (am also starting to read Tove Jansson's works for adults)... I'm probably forgetting many. For a long time I mainly read older lit (especially 19th and very early 20th century), historical novels and fantasy, but lately I've been expanding more to modern literature as well, and I'm looking for new favourites. At the moment I seem to enjoy many kinds of things and can be reading Mansfield Park, Dykes to Watch Out For and some Finnish YA fantasy all in the same day. I also love poetry, and some of my favourites include Christina Rossetti, Emily Dickinson, T.S. Eliot, and some Finnish poets, especially Katri Vala, Kirsi Kunnas and Kaarlo Sarkia.

Favourite films: Frozen, Amélie, Dead Poets Society, F*cking Åmål (also called Show Me Love). I don't watch a lot of films, but these come to my mind first. I also like watching TV series, though I can only handle one or two at a time since I don't like spending that much time watching things on screens. At the moment I love BBC's Sherlock and have just gotten into Dr Who.

Favourite music: My music taste is mostly terribly untrendy and I'm mainly into classical music and musicals. I also enjoy Hayley Westenra, some film soundtracks, Josh Groban and Vienna Teng. My favourite musicals are especially European fare like Elisabeth, Mozart! and Tanz der Vampire, but I also enjoy watching plenty of other things. Spring Awakening, Les Misérables and Disney musicals might count among the musicals English-speakers also know.

What would you like to send/receive?: Mainly letters, though if we have shared interests, be it tea or poetry or whatever, we can sure also send things connected to them from time to time. Also, I've only started using LJ again, so if someone doesn't want new penpals but does want to become LJ friends, that's very welcome if we have some things in common!

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone with some similar interests, especially other bi/lesbian girls/women. Oh, and hopefully someone who's not going to be worked up if I take a while to answer. I'm only getting back to having more than one pen friend, and I don't yet know how it will go, what with having to work and all, so though I want to write letters, I don't want to feel really stressed about it. I'm kind of rambly and more likely to take some time writing a long letter than dash up a short one quickly.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Particularly Europe, but anywhere is fine. As a bonus, I'd love a chance to keep up my French and German through letter-writing.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") Nothing in particular, though if you want to send tea, it's best we have first talked about what I mean by good tea. ;-)

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Just a nice fat letter filled with thoughts, life things and whatever else you want to talk about! I do love it if there's some discussion about things like books, theatre etc. in letters.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Contact either by commenting here or e-mailing amelia.in.garden AT gmail.com. And even if you come across this ad much later and feel like we should get to know each other, feel free to contact me - I'll let you know if I can't take any more penpals at the moment.
[identity profile] ilkimieli.livejournal.com
Name: Niina, but I have a problem with names - I don't see how I'm supposed to identify with a string of letters my parents chose for me without even knowing me yet.

Age: Turned 24 on January 11th.

Location: Kajaani, Finland... from which you may conclude that English isn't my native language and thus I'm prone to making mistakes.

How do you identify?: I'm... queer? Can I just say queer? 'Cause I don't like to further categorize myself because everything is fluid. A year ago I thought I was going to transition but now I'm not so sure. Assigned female at birth, lived as a girl most of my life, but have always felt uncomfortable in that role. When it comes to sexuality, well, I'm married to a man but I tend to think of myself as panromantic and kinda sorta asexual. Not 100 % asexual but somewhat.w

Interests/hobbies A myriad of things!

  • Gardening! I started a gardening school last autumn, but due to my mental health issues (clinical depression, borderline personality disorder, anxiety disorder) I had to give it up.

  • Interior decorating! Once upon a time I wanted to turn it into a career, but really, I'm not good enough at it to even consider it.

  • Professional organizing! I'm just getting started on that career. I blog about it, and I'm currently overjoyed that my website is the fourth in Google when you Google my name!

  • Cats. I and my husband have one. A black boy called Hiili ("coal" in English).

  • Dogs. We have one, too. A Siberian husky girl called Voltti ("volt" or "somersault" in English).

  • The Internet. Obviously. I have blogs (yes, plural; I have an interior decorating blog, a plant blog, a Tumblr blog, a professional organizing blog...

  • Astrophysics and astrobiology. I'm terribly at physics and biology, especially physics, but I find it interesting.

  • Playing Skyrim and The Sims 4 (on Xbox 360 and PC, respectively). That's our hobby, really: we sit on the sofa, I spend time online and my husband plays Skyrim, and then we switch. (My husband plays a lot more games but I haven't gotten interested in, say, Lara Croft games.)

  • Reading. I'm currently reading about Feng Shui to incorporate that into my professional organizing business. Because the more I learn, the better I can serve my clients.

Favourite books: I've read a huge amount of books (learned to read at the age of four, so that's twenty years of reading for me) and it's always super difficult for me to choose a favorite. But The Lord of the Rings has stuck with me the longest, plus the Potter series, and everything by Jodi Picoult. I'm a writer myself, and I try my best to read as many different kinds of books as possible.

Favourite films: I'm not too into movies. But I've loved The Lord of the Rings, American History X, Fight Club, Klass, Zero Day, and a bunch of documentaries. What's that one in which ducklings jump from the tree? That scene is ADORABLE. I want to rewatch it.

Favourite music: My Last.fm will tell you more.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, mostly, since I'm kinda poor and can't afford to send packages overseas. At least not too often.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who thinks we might have something in common. I'm not too into the whole "you must be between x and y years old" thing because I don't think age is all that matters in a friendship.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: No preference. As long as your English is understandable, I think we're good to go.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything's cool. Except liquorice.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Umm. I would like a letter talking about what's up in your life, with a bunch of random observations of the world and yourself, plus something that would be easy for me to reply to. Like direct questions.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I tend to be SUPER awkward at first, so... I'm sorry if I end up scaring you. XD Also, this Journal is only in Finnish so if you're looking to friend me, you'd better learn Finnish. ;)

[identity profile] inbminor.livejournal.com
Name: Alice, legally - a thousand other things, informally. Most often, lately, it's been spaceman or simply E [for Eric, if it matters].

Age: Twenty.

Location: United States. New Jersey, to be specific.

How do you identify?: This will be a mouthful - homoromantic asexual genderqueer. I am a girl who prefers male pronouns [I am also partial to being referred to as 'dude' and 'bro'], but I'm not and never will be FTM. I like girls. That's about it.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, editing, drawing, roleplaying, playing w0w sometimes, studying astronomy - I work at a planetarium. I'm also partial to psychology and sociology, and languages; I'm currently learning Japanese. With editing, I'm the editor-in-chief of my college's student newspaper.

Favourite books: Anything by Poppy Z. Brite, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' [Wilde], 'After Dark,' 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' [Murakami]; there is a tonne more that I cannot remember for the life of me right now. Uh.. the current book that I'm re-reading is 'The Way of Shadows,' by Brent Weeks. I have a hard time putting it down when I need to.

Favourite films: Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, How to Train Your Dragon, Breakfast on Pluto, The Royal Tenenbaums, Watching the Detectives, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Johns, But I'm a Cheerleader!, Mysterious Skin, Let The Right One In.

Favourite music: Oh, god. Basically - Radiohead, Andrew Bird, deadman, Merry, The Decemberists, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Mars Volta, deadmau5, Caviar, Paganini, Blockhead, and Gorillaz are some of my favourites. I also love Flight of the Conchords. However, the list goes on for ages and ages.. I'll listen to just about anything. I have a very eclectic library.

What would you like to send/receive?: Snail mail, e-mail, anything. Handwritten letters make me the happiest, however.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Everyone!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere! Bear in mind that my primary language is English, and while I'm going to be in Japanese III in the fall, I am nowhere near fluent enough to have confidence in my letter-writing skills. If anyone wants to help me, though.. :'D

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Uhh.. y'know, illegal stuff, dead things, etc. The usual. I'm allergic to coconut, in case we wind up sending each other care packages.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Long letters, drawings, mix CDs, little trinkets, uhh.. candy?? idk, man. Rainbows and giraffes and awesome things.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Stuff and things. I'm painfully awkward. It's nothing against you, if I'm shy for a long time. I really, really like giraffes. I also really like owls and crows. I adore This American Life. I'm interested in BDSM and kind-of-sort-of looking for a Dom. I am very good at doing what I'm told. I don't really like anime, but Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my most favourite things in this universe. I have the worst sleeping habits ever. I can be pedantic and a bit of a jerk. My boss is my best friend. Elliot Smith makes me cry.

 Name: Jazzi

Age: 19 and 1/2

Location: Indiana

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything with animal products:  I'm vegan

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Tea bags, lovely stories about someone's life, colorful photographs or paintings, small perfume samples, and genuine affection

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm very shy at first.  Please don't let that scare you off.

Picture: Yay, belly dancing!

Name: Caroline


Location: Home is Plymouth in the UK, term time is Bristol.

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Names are odd. I'm female. I like being female. I like people. I do not mind what shell they are in.

Interests/hobbies: I'm reading English Literature at university, so, reading. Music takes up too much of my money. Gigs - I like the feeling that everyone is there for the same reason. My horse, Jacob, he is my bestest BFG. I play the drums mostly, I have other musical skills. I like drinking coffee and watching people. I like cooking mostly because I like feeding people - not in a creepy way.

Favourite books: I love a lot of books but The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky is my favourite.

Favourite films:
The Nightmare Before Christmas since I was five. I like peculiar films. I like pretentious arty films. I like world cinema.

Favourite music: I would have to say that Muse are my favourite band - I've seen them 54 times so far - but I'm not that person with a favourite band who only listens to that band. I have more CDs than I can fit in my room, I have a loft full of vinyl and my iPod is full. The rest of my musical loving is on a plateau of wonder - Radiohead, The Smiths, The Beatles, Placebo, Chem, Alkaline Trio and the list goes on and on.

What would you like to send/receive?: I love post! I mean proper post that is delivered by the postman post, so letters. I like surprises, nice ones.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone and everyone.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: All of them.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts")
Hells no, post me anything.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Some kind of mix CD made with me in mind, an interesting newspaper clipping, perhaps a book that is worth a read and I'd like for it to smell nice.

Anything else you'd like to add?:

I don't often hang out with inflatable condoms but when in Amsterdam...

I'm kinda bored, so I figured I'd run through this again :D I'm really not big on letter-writing, since I'm kind of swamped with schoolwork and I'm really bad about sending things out in a timely manner (seriously, the only way we get rent in on time is because we send it in online XD), so I'm mainly just looking for email buddies and/or LJ friends :)

 Name: Kara

Age: 19

Location: Issaquah, Washington, the United States of America, North America, Earth, The Milky Way Galaxy, The Universe.

How do you identify?: Well, I'm a girl in a girl's body, which is nice. However, the sexuality bit is a little . . . unclear, at the moment.

Interests/hobbies: I love books. Love them love them love them. I travel with a suitcase full of books. If I'm not reading, I'm baking, though some of my inventions don't really turn out that well. I try! Other than that, it's mostly video games and comic books, as well as loud, tacky music. I also hunt around the internet for random information, and occasionally I pull out my flute, though my neighbors rarely thank me for that last one. 

Favourite books: Just about everything by Neil Gaimen and Terry Pratchett, with Good Omens being a particular favorite. Ooh, and all of Georgette Heyer's books! Matilda, The Elegance of Hedgehogs, the Bruno & Boots series (I always wanted to be a plucky Canadian schoolboy), most Christopher Moore books, 

Favourite films: Hm. A little trickier, since I actually can't sit through really awkward movies. With the way movies are going these days, you can see my problem. I did enjoy Sunshine Cleaning, Stranger than Fiction, Snatch, the Die Hard series, Shaun of the Dead, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and, more recently, Inception.

Favourite music: With my new music kick I have going I’ll listen to anything. It really depends on my mood what I listen to. All around favorite is Something Corporate though. I have a lot of 80s and 90s song on my iPod.

What would you like to send/receive?: Email works, but if you're willing to try and decipher my handwriting, I'd love to exchange snail mail.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: No preference at all, though my only languages other than English are Japanese and French; the first, I speak better than I read, and the second, I'm just learning.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! I love hearing about new places!

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Um, mm, er. Small animals? Bones of the innocent? I mean, keep it clean and murder free, and I'm good.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A decent letter (possibly with pictures included), maybe with some interesting music, or hideously tacky jewelry. We could make a game of it!

Anything else you'd like to add?: This journal is pretty new. I mean, there'll be stuff eventually, but not for another couple of days. Or weeks. I have yet to decide. But anyway, I'm here, I'd love to talk and come up with ridiculous gifts, just say the word!
