Name: Michelle
Age: 44

How do you identify: Oh so many answers... one of which is lesbian.
Interests/Hobbies: Writing, playing piano, hiking, movies, spending time with friends

I am looking for a pen pal interested in old fashioned snail mail. We can discuss anything from the far left to the far right and everything in between. I grew up going to church and continued growing my faith through college. While still actively serving in music ministry I came out as a lesbian. I continued to attend church though my membership was technically revoked. I eventually stopped dating altogether because I couldn't reconcile my faith with my feelings. That was about 14 years ago. Over the past year I've come to believe I can no longer deny that I am both a lesbian and a Christian. Granted, all this is just one aspect of my Craxy Life (aka crazy life). Some of my other labels include introvert, adult ADD, goofy, socially awkward in large crowds, and deep thinker... oh, I also have Swyer's Syndrome which you've probably never heard of.

If you are interested in a pen pal, send an email to: mharper at hgellc dot com
We can decide from there if we are interested in sending snail mail and exchange addresses. Your location in the world is not important as I am happy to send mail anywhere.

Name: Katja

Age: 25

Location: Tampere, Finland (In Northern Europe, Scandinavia.)

How do you identify?: At the moment, I identify as non-binary. It's a pretty recent realization and I'm not sure what it means regarding my sexual identity, yet.

Interests/hobbies: I read a lot of fiction and also some books on society, gender studies, queer studies, literary history and literary theory. I play classical music and sing in a feminist choir. I'm very much into Postcrossing, which is sending postcards to strangers around the world, but I also really like receving mail from people I actually know. I'm interested in literature, gender studies, queer studies, queer theory, Ireland and many other things. I'm in some fandoms, e.g. Harry Potter, BBC Sherlock and Lord of the Rings. I drink a lot of tea and use most of my little amount of extra money on books and tea.

Favourite books: The Harry Potter series (I'm a huge fan!), Oscar Wilde's work (especially his plays), Emma Donoghue's novels, Sarah Water's novels, Donna Tartt's The Secret History, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. James Joyce's The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Of course the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wilslava Szymborska's poems. Stephen Fry's novels, especially Making History. For Finnish writers: Pirkko Saisio and Johanna Sinisalo are my favourites. Recently, I have been reading and enjoying Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun, J.K. Rowling's A Casual Vacancy, Tove Janssons' Moomin stories and Jonas Gardell's Torka aldrig tårar utan handskar -series (about people with AIDS in Sweden in the 80s). I'm very interested in hearing about your favourite books and authors!

Favourite films: I have seen a lot fewer films than read books... The Man in the Iron Mask is one of my all-time favourites. Wilde, where Stephen Fry plays Oscar Wilde is phenomenal. V for Vendetta, Apollo 13 and The Lord of the Rings movies. I'm quite excited about the Hunger Games movies.

Favourite music: I'm not sure if I have a genre I prefer over all others. Recently I have been listening to Disco Enseble, Gossip, Gogol Bordello, Clann Zú and System of a Down.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters and postcards! Snail mail, preferably. I can also send (and wouldn't mind receving) samples of tea or candy.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, really. I'd love to talk to people outside the gender binary, but seriosly, if anyone answers my introduction, I'll be thrilled!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any country.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: No, I can't really think of anything, besides the obvious ones, like hate mail or very unkind messages, or sexual content without any negotation about it.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Well, possibly both a postcard and a letter, filled with your thoughts about literature, music, art, gender, your life and anything you wish to tell me. Perhaps also a bag or a few spoonfuls of your favourite tea for me to sample while reading what you have written.

Anything else you'd like to add?: If you are shy about giving me your home address, we can also exchange emails first! Or I can give you my address first, or we can become FB-friends or anything that makes you comfortable. If you are not into writing long letters, postcardfriends are highly appriciated, too! Contact me here or on my email (sinipiika@outlook.com). Oh, and my journal here is only in Finnish, so although I'd love to read your entries, mine won't make much sense to you if you don't speak Finnish.

They say the 3rd times the charm. I have had penpals twice before; but one abandoned LJ and the other has been super busy, so…here we go

Name: Machelle

Age: 27 - it was a painful reality check to realize after this year I would be closer to 30 than 20…sigh…wrinkles are eminent…

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify? (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old TV shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then; I can crochet, knit, sew, and make bead jewelry. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have its own bullet point.

Favorite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. I love to read and the listing is crazy long, so here are a few that are in my “To Read” or “Reread” pile: Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; Perks of Being a Wallflower; Pride & Prejudice; Lover At Last; Prince of Thorns; Game of Thrones; Born in Fire; House of Leaves; City of Bones; Cinder; the Replacements; Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea; I, Robot; Odd Brother; Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; Wicked; White Queen. You can imagine my bedside table…lol. I read just about everything; and the invention of smart phones and tablets have saved me considerable money in chiropractor bills…lol.

Favorite films: Well, to start out, I collect lots of Disney or animated movies from when I was younger. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast; and then the list goes to Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia, so on and so forth…

My non animated movies favorites include: Noises OFF! <--best movie ever... Avengers; Skyfall; Iron Man 3; the Fast & Furious series; Last Holiday; Red Eye; Batman trilogy; LOTRs; Matrix movies; the Rush Hours; Sister Act; all Star Trek movies, old and new; Two Weeks Notice; The Holiday; Secret Garden; Little Princess; Murder by Death; Clue; Ten Inch Hero; Ocean's 11…the list continues

I love old school movies: Gidget; any Doris Day movie; Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda; White Christmas; Movies with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Cary Grant, or Rock Hudson; All of the Three Stooges episodes

I will quickly say that Sherlock and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows; and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men. So other TV shows I like: Charmed; Buffy; Angel; Fraiser; House; Law & Order, all variations; the Good Wife; Lost Girl (omg!); Glee; Chicago Fire; Switched at Birth; NCIS; Supernatural; Smallville; Xena; Hercules; Will & Grace; Reba; Sons of Anarchy; White Collar; Bones, Dick Van Dyke show, I Love Lucy, the Monkeys, Bewitched…la la la

Favorite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything, no really…Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals. Soundtracks. Also note that I need new music from the following: Florence & the Machine, Drake, Adele, Bullet for my Valentine, and the last one escapes me…but if you are in touch with any of these people, or their agents, please let them know of my need for new CDs ASAP. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

What would you like to send/receive? Emails. Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from? Pretty much anyone 18+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Oh anywhere would be exciting as long as you speak English; unless you also speak French because I'm trying to learn...lol.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I am opposed to pretty much any food stuff.

What would be in your dream letter or package? The getting of a letter or email just makes me smile; so consistent responses would be awesome. I’m not talking about every day, though we can do that if we go the digital route; but I would like to keep this going for a while. I miss the daily, weekly, or monthly doses of happiness I get just from knowing someone took the time to reach out to me.

Anything else you'd like to add?: On my last post I had a random rant here about Youtube not having a repeat button; but that has since been fixed by someone who is unknown to me, but to whom I am forever indebted. If you type the word repeat inside the URL like this --> www."repeat"youtube.com/url without the " " it should repeat the video for you! Genius, huh?

Also, I'm a ginger. I thought I would give you fair warning in case you were worried about your soul.

[identity profile] serpents-eye.livejournal.com

Name: Catherine

Age: 19

Location: Florida/USA

How do you identify?: I'm a cis-gendered female who identifies as Panromantic/borderline asexual (grey ace). I tend to lean toward being polyamorous, but can be monogamous.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, baking, cooking, drawing, painting, cycling, hiking, community living, roller skating, canoeing, kayaking, free thought, puzzles, and probably a lot more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

Favorite books: Flint, Starborn, I Am J, several unpublished books that I've had the pleasure to beta read. I can't really remember the names of many books I liked enough to make the favorites list. Mostly I like fantasy, sometimes sci-fi, an occasional western or romance.

Favorite films: The Dark Knight (and pretty much any other Batman movie I can get my hands on). The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum. Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve, Oceans Thirteen. Limitless. Underworld (all of them to date). Treasure Planet. How to Train Your Dragon. Happily N'Ever After. The Crow (and sequels). The Talented Mr Ripley. Catch Me if You Can. Big Eden. Tipping the Velvet. X-Men (sequels). Equilibrium. Captain America. Lucky Number Slevin. The Saint. Blood and Chocolate. Shelter. Maurice.

Favorite TV: Dexter, Sherlock,

Favorite music: Basshunter, Evanescence, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Coldplay, Owl City, etc. I also listen to classical music sometimes, but given that I only really listen to it while writing or painting, I don't really know what artists. I just turn on a classical station, or a movie soundtrack, and then paint/write.

What would you like to send/receive?: Emails.

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

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone. I mostly read and write in English however. While I can read German passably well, and write it a little bit, I'm not to sure how well I would be understood, so it's probably best to keep correspondence in English. If you want to attempt correspondence in German, then by all means, but you have been forewarned.
Those are the only two languages that I speak at all.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Viruses. Seeing as it's an electronic form of communication, I don't see much else that someone could send that I couldn't just delete if I didn't like it.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Interesting conversation about common interests, or about being queer. Things that make me laugh. Or just somebody's thoughts and feelings about life in general.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Wherever, whenever.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? That which might get me arrested?

What would be in your dream letter or package? Taxidermy, an awesome letter, a hand-crafted piece of jewelry utilizing found objects, a map of a town I've never been to, or basically anything. I get excited to get mail. Period. End of subject.

Anything else you'd like to add? I have a cat; her name is Booker.

This is at a work function two days ago, and no, I don't wear glasses. They were photobooth props...?

Age: 19 (20 in less than three months)

Location: London (home avec mes parents) and Durham, UK (uni)

How do you identify?: Bisexual female (I don't really like labelling my 'orientation'- I love who I love, y'know? So bisexual is, I guess, the closest.)

Interests/hobbies: Reading and writing, poetry, music, archaeology, ancient history, vintage clothes shopping, travelling, road trips, languages, photography, modern art, film, blogging, tumblr, stand-up comedy. I play drums, bass, piano, harmonica, and acoustic guitar. I write a style/culture/music blog over at blogger.com. I love going to gigs and festivals with my friends and family. I'm studying archaeology and ancient history but I don't really know what I want to do with my life.

Favourite books: Anything by William S. Burroughs, especially Junky. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The Paradise Trail by Duncan Campbell. DonDon by Nick Taussig. Anything by Oscar Wilde. Bright Shiny Morning. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I live and breathe books.

Favourite films: Ocean's 11, Fired Up, the original Star Wars trilogy, Sherlock Holmes, Road Trip, A Hard Days Night.

Favourite music: Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Queen, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Poison, Mr. Big, Duff McKagan's Loaded, The Beatles, Rush, The Rolling Stones. Recently, I've been really into Arcade Fire and One Republic. I like anything with a good beat that I can dance or headbang to. Classic rock will always be my first love. Music is, hands down, the most important thing in my life.

What would you like to send/receive?: Long letters via snail mail. Interesting pictures you've taken or found. American food or things you can only buy in America (I'd send the English equivalent). Mixtapes/CDs. Poems and short stories.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A mixtape, some American/Australian/canadian chocolate, and a long handwritten letter :)

Anything else you'd like to add?: I did this once before but nothing ever really came of it so lets have another go :) I love NCIS: LA and Supernatural and pretty much anything Eric Christian Olsen's ever been in. I'm a sucker for guys with long hair and butch girls. I spend most of my life acting like a complete child. One day, I want to move to New York and join a band and travel the world. Or maybe be tour manager for Foo Fighters. I know everything there is to know about Bon Jovi. I love when a band or a song unites the whole audience and everyone's singing and everyone has this amazing connection. And the way a musician or a band can make 10,000 people shut up and listen with just one note. It's the most incredible feeling.

 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!

hello :)

Name: kelsey

Age: 19

Location: midwest booo.

How do you identify?: a very confused female :D

Interests/hobbies: oh boy so many interests and hobbies. WELL. I'm a huge history nerd so I geek out by watching a ton of the history channel and i'm proud to say over 90% of my books are historical/political in nature if not social science in general. I also love fashion, art (i'm a studio art minor, I adore painting and photography), traveling & trying new foods, rock n roll, vintage photos, reading, playing video games to an extent: I like call of duty, ace attorney, pokemon, and the sims but I don't get sucked into them. I like walking around cities, hanging out, having fun convos, and lots of other things.

Favourite books:

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...

Name: (legal in one month's time) Katerick Alixan. But you can call me Alix

Age: 24

Location: Southern California

How do you identify?: basically? A gay man in a chick body. or, if you're into labels, genderqueer transmasculine pansexual, but that is just such a mouthful. and I'm taken :3

Interests/hobbies: Writing, Reading, torturing fictional characters... But anyway, I have a lot of interests, but I also don'tget to delve into some of them as often as I'd like. I am a TOTAL language geek, and I currently am almost trilingual (english, spanish, German), but I'd like to learn about 10 more, including Finnish and Lithuanian. Yeah. I know. I'm crazy. I also love psychology and poking around inside what makes the mind tick, because crazy characters make for interesting characters. I love music, both my parents are opera singers and my dad sings on movie soundtracks, so music is always an important thing. I like a lot of computer stuff and video games as well. Oh and Roleplaying. I roleplay online, via IM, in 1 on 1 situations, I'm also up for email RPing, and if you live near me, D&D is fine too :D

Favourite books: Oh dear jesus. where to begin. I love books that are strange. I confess that since becoming a full time student on the quarter system, I have had very little time to actually READ anything, and I'm in the middle of about six books. But I really like fantasy novels, like the Night Watch series by Sergei Lukyanenko, and I'm also a fan of Warren Ellis, James Patterson, Dean Koontz, etc. I know there's a scad of books that I NEED to read, such as anything by Gaiman and Pratchett, but I just haven't yet, please don't kill me lol.

Favourite films: My mom used to be a film studies teacher, so um. almost anything. Except for really stupid movies like Jackass or movies that look to be entirely about fart jokes. My favorite genres are fantasy, psychological thriller, drama, and action movies. I fucking love action movies, especially stupid ones that are just there for the sake of LET'S LOOK AT EXPLOSIONS.

Favourite music: I prefer foreign music to American music, and my favorite genres are rock, metal, industrial and "other" since I have some strange shit in my ipod. My favorite band is a German band called OOMPH! who are listed as Rammstein's inspirations. I also like VNV Nation, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Van Canto(a capella metal, how can you NOT like that), Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Icon of Coil, Letzte Instanz, Kaizer's Orchestra.... and of course I've got a soft spot for the stuff I listened to when I was growing up like Eve 6, Crazytown, *NSYNC, old No Doubt, etc. I also have a bit of guilty pleasures, like Banghra music, and Limp Bizkit, and old seventies German pop music, or those old dance hits from the 90s that were played around the 8th grade dance.

What would you like to send/receive?: Mostly emails or IMs, I have no time to write and will frequently forget that I have mail I need to send.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: pretty much anyone? I really like to talk to other people who are somewhere around the same area as me in the gender spectrum, just because I haven't found many people to talk to about it, but outside of that? just people who share my interests.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: anywhere. If it's somewhere that English isn't the main language, I'd like to learn others, but right now German would probably be the best foreign language to send me. Or Finnish if you can translate it in the email because damn y'all's language is hard xD

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: angryness, bad spam, trolling etc.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I'd just like to make some new friends, if I can do that? I'd be happy.

Anything else you'd like to add?: mmm.... I won't be online that often, but I'll always try to respond within a day or two to your emails!
