Favourite films: Titanic, Shawshank Redemption, Bourne trilogy, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hunger Games, Easy A, Foxfire, Girl Interrupted, Cruel Intentions, The Craft, etc... I also enjoy cheesy sci-fi, stunt-crazy action, Asian horror, sappy romance, girly chick flicks, Disney/Pixar, and science/nature documentaries.

Favourite TV shows: Torchwood, Game of Thrones, Sherlock BBC, Downton Abby, Vampire Diaries, Dexter, The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, Roseanne, The Riches, Dead Like Me, Veronica Mars, Star Trek TOS, and I'm sure there are more that I can't remember.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm hoping for some e-pals, but snail mail would be okay too. Just be warned that I may take a bit longer and my handwriting isn't the greatest due to carpal tunnel! Either way we do it, I'd love to send and receive photography, recipes, little gifts specific to our respective areas, perhaps even bits of writing if you're into that.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Food, hateful or rude messages, and emails/letters in one massive chunk with bad grammar. Decent grammar (doesn't have to be OMG perfect) is a must.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A picture you took, a postcard, a story or poem, a recipe, bits about your life you'd like to share, conversations and friendly debates, advice, etc...

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm in therapy and on medication for ADHD, depression, and anxiety. Make sure to let me know if talking about these things bother you so I will know to leave them out of discussions. =D

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Favorite books: Flint, Starborn, I Am J, several unpublished books that I've had the pleasure to beta read.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.

Basically anything rock; cabaret; industrial; oldies; gypsy; dance. I listen to it all. Even some country, but it's got to be 90's or older for the most part. Classical can be amazing.

What would you like to send/receive?: I would love more email pals, but I also really, really would like to start exhanging snail mail with anyone who is interested.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Honestly, anybody, as long as they are able to respect different mentalities.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any, as long as can you write in English. Sorry!
 
What would be in your dream letter or package?: Letters are enough for me! However, I'm not opposed to eventually exhanging other types of things.

Age: 19

Location: Maryland, USA, but the cities change depending on whether I'm in school or not.

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Female bisexual. Technically, I'm a romantic pansexual, but don't know for sure the actual sexual part.

Interests/hobbies: Reading, writing, music, The Sims (The Sims O_O), baking/cooking, rugby, watching soccer, television, nail polish, bikes, going to lectures, sociology and anthropology, history, etymology and mythology, things that smell nice, this list could continue but I'm stopping here.

Favourite films: Hot Fuzz, Shawn of the Dead, Star Trek, O! Brother Where Art Thou, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Little Miss Sunshine, Spirited Away...This is actually a bit of a hard list because I don't really watch movies/like-like movies. I'm more of a television girl.

Favourite music: Jason Mraz, The Killers, David Bowie, Adele, Shakira, Juanes (I really like Spanish music...I just don't understand what they're saying), Foster the People, Mika, The Ark, Fitz and the Tantrums, Vampire Weekend, Andy Grammer, Maroon 5

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone who speaks English--not in a mean way. I fail at learning languages (I've tried very hard, but it never sticks). Otherwise, I'll be happy to correspond with just about anyone. :)

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I guess the U.S. would be the easiest, but I wouldn't mind people from all over the world. (Especially the U.K.--I go there often. Or, at least I try to.)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I'm fine with anything not alive, dead, perishable, or smells like death

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I nice letter of any length that tells me about your day/week/month and maybe makes recommendations about music, TV, movies, etc. etc. I'm rather lonely here at school and I just want to make some nice friends.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I have shitty handwriting and I curse like a pirate.

Ok, let's get this going. I had set something up with a would be pen pal several months ago, but she has since abandoned LJ. Sad days. Here's hoping this time goes better.

Name: Machelle

Age: Turned 25 in April

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 my Mom is teaching me to quilt...though we may kill each other before it's all over... I also love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have it's own bullet point. Tattoos, I have three and have several more planned.

Favourite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. Anything by Amy Tan. I like pretty much all of Kim Harrison's and Laurell K. Hamilton's stuff. Gone with the Wind and Scarlett. I just bought Full Dark No Stars by Steven King, and the Game of Thrones. I'm in the middle of an amazing biography on Cleopatra by someone Schiff...I think. Love it. Also, I have the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks next to my laptop. I read just about everything and almost always have at least one book within reaching distance, even if it's just on my phone...Because let's be for real. Smart phones that double as e-readers? Best Thing EVER.

Favourite films: Oh. This is going to be all sort of trouble I can tell. Well, to start out, I love and collect almost any Disney movie from my childhood. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast, I was beside myself when it was re released this year. Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia! My non animated movies favorites consist of several trilogies : LOTR, Matrix, the Rush Hours. I also 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 and Dean Martin. And who doesn't love a good comedy or romcom? Sister Act. Two Weeks Notice. Last Holiday. The Holiday. Pretty much anything Sandra Bullock or Queen Latifah have done. This is getting ridiculous. Lets just say I love movies and leave it at that. I will quickly say that Supernatural and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows, and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men...'nough said. Oh! And don't forget musicals! Never could! Producers. Wicked. Cats. Rent. those are my favorites.

Favourite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything. No really. Lol. I used to qualify that with the statement that I didn't listen to rap, but my bf has decided that as a ginger, and the only white best friend she has ever had that I need some swag lessons...which are failing spectacularly, in case you were curious. So now I own and like a couple cds by Nikki Minaj, Drake, Chris Brown, and some other people that I just can't remember. Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals, I lump this in here because I have listened to more soundtracks than plays I have actually seen live, but I love them all. Fabulous stuff, this music that sings to our souls.

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

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Pretty much anyone 19+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Oh anywhere would be exciting.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I opposed to pretty much any food stuff. It tends not to make it to its destinations. I only know this because I sent a few care packages home from England when I spent a semester in the UK, and some of the candy didn't make it home. So, that means someone in Customs on the UK or US side grabbed a snack, bloody thieves. Just sayin'.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A letter that makes me smile and is full of heart felt words and empty of judgments.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Yup. Can anyone tell me why Youtube doesn't have a repeat button? Seriously. It would make my life sooooo much easier...no lie. Also, I should apologize for the ellipsis in advance...lol.

Anything else you’d like to add?:
Yeah, I'm looking for someone who is open-minded, awesome, has similar interests (or totally different ones), someone who likes to keep in touch and not just do this for a one time thing, one who wants to get to know me more, share inside jokes/stories, someone who would like to exchange little gifts, someone fun who doesn't always have to send a letter, it can be a postcard or a picture, someone who can get creative and making the whole penpal experience even more fun than it is. Someone like you :)

This is me :)

[identity profile] wanderlustmind.livejournal.com
Name: Katherine

Age: 22

Location: USA.

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Lesbianish genderqueer

Interests/hobbies: I love to travel. I do a lot of “unconventional” things (like living out of my car, working often, mostly “unstable” jobs...and nothing illegal, in case those quotations look shady) so I can afford to do so. I haven’t considered myself a gamer since the 360/Wii/PS3 came out, but I do love video games. Reading is mandatory! I usually carry at least one book with me everywhere. In my purse right now: Shadow’s Edge by Brent Weeks, and A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, and A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Writing is sort of hit/miss nowadays. Cats, also. They’re the best :)

Favourite books: Anything with words in it. Pictures are nice but optional.

Favourite films: Horror movies are the best! So are documentaries. Anime.

Favourite music: There are things I listen to out of every genre. I usually have a few bands that I obsess over at any given time, though they constantly change and/or repeat. Currently bouncing around my head are La Dispute, Rabbit Junk, Ludo, Rise Against, and Patent Pending.

[I really suck at picking favorites. I hate doing it; “favorites” always change with my mood.]

What would you like to send/receive?: Email? I don’t really like my handwriting enough to send written stuff, but at the same time I’ve always wanted a reason to use a stationary set. So basically I’m up for anything.

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

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere. Please. I speak, read, and write Spanish, but just barely. I would love to practice though :]

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. “food/candy with nuts”) [insert serial killer joke here]

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A book or a mix tape/CD.

Anything else you’d like to add?: To be honest, I’m probably going to be horrible at this. I’m very boring and uninteresting and my friends usually keep me around for occasional quips and mild amusement, and mostly for listening. But I travel a bunch if you’re interested in hearing about that, or collect postcards like I do. :D

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone in the same age range from me 15-18. I want to be pen pals with someone who wants to keep a regular, fun and educative (does that even make sense lol) correspondence.

I've honestly been researching a lot about religions in India so I would love to discuss that. I'm EXTREMELY liberal. I'm a pro choice black feminist. I'm OBSESSED with Hello Kitty and fashion. I'm really sensitive and weird. I can crochet. I'm trying to learn the guitar but I'm lazy as hell. I'm also a vegetarian. I hope to meet some awesomesauce folk. Anybody who's into politics (Anarchism, Communism, Socialism things of that nature and societal stuff) should definitely come talk to me :D because I'm really into that stuff and would love to learn more. I'm also a very vulgar and TMI person lol. This post was really off, sowwy <3

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: Cyrus (I go by Cy)

Age: 22

Location: Newmarket, NH

How do you identify?: Panromantic demisexual with an aesthetic preference for the male body. Also, pre-transitioned trans dude. I call myself a gay man for the simplicity. Also taken.

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!

Name: Elizabeth

> Age: 25

> Location: Milwaukee, WI, USA

> How do you identify?: Lesbian

> Interests/hobbies: Reading, writing poetry, listening to music and playing guitar, watching movies, letterboxing (like Geocaching but without the GPS), knitting/crocheting, traveling, studying literature, history, languages, and more.

> Favourite books: I have so many, but here are a few: "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett, "Book of Hours" by Rilke, anything by Linda Pastan, the Stieg Larsson books, Geraldine Brooks' "People of the Book," "The Never-Ending Story," Radclyffe's medical dramas, and most recently, a lot of noir detective fiction.

> Favourite films: La Belle et la Bete, Star Wars, Devil Wears Prada (because I think Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway are both pretty attractive), Firefly series, Farscape series, + so many more.

> Favourite music: pretty much anything depending on what mood I'm in.  Lately I've been listening to a lot of classical music featuring cellos (a phase, I'm sure) but I've been mixing in some modern rock and alternative, folk-rock, moldy oldies, and some lite R&B/HipHop.  I'm pretty much all over the charts on this one.

> What would you like to send/receive?: snail mail's good. Mix cds are always fun. Pictures, bookswaps, these are all good.  Interesting articles.  Poems you like.  Funny ads you see in magazines.  Whatever.  :)

> Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: people I find interesting. Probably would prefer to stick to the queer female. 20-35, I'd think for starters.

> What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any.  I've been studying Hebrew and Greek, so if anyone wants to practice their English with me and let me practice my Greek or Hebrew with them (and are very very brave, as I am not fluent), that'd be cool too.

> Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"). Nothing illegal or sexual, please. 

> What would be in your dream letter or package?: I haven't thought about it that much, I guess. Thoughts, funny stories, just your basic "get to know you" kind of stuff.  Random bits of interesting things (I sometimes send photos I've taken or poems/articles I find interesting or funny).

> Anything else you'd like to add?: I don't think so. If you're interested, let me know.

Name: Kailey (Kay)

Age: 17

Location: Colorado, US

How do you identify?: lesbian/female

Interests/hobbies: lately, i've been working on a photography business (portrait photography, senior pictures for twelfth graders currently) (have a deviantart link!), and i write (it's ...very natural and beautiful to me, i don't think i'll ever be able to stop writing even if i want to or how much it drives me crazy) -- and read, quite a lot. i'm also getting into cooking (vegetarian/vegan style) and ...hm. i don't know, is jumping around on the outskirts of different fandoms a hobby? or playing with my ten cats? xD

Favourite books: Enchantment by Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite books of all time -- i love his writing style and most of his other books, including the Ender's Game/Shadow series. I've also really liked Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto and After Dark by Haruki Murakami. um, other authors i like include F. Scott Fitzgerald, H.G. Wells, Tamora Pierce, Alice Hoffman, Kurt Vonnegut... this gives a pretty good idea of the kind of books i like, though i'm always open to recs ♥ /reads a lot.

Favourite films: Hayao Miyazaki films, Miracle, R.E.N.T., Slumdog Millionaire, ...i'm not very good at remembering films i've enjoyed, but i tend to like indie & foreign films that leave an impression -- like Caramel or the Japanese film 46 Billion Years of Love (46億年の恋). more recently, i adored Inception (i like that kind of adrenaline rush -- the Oceans Eleven type strategy solving WILL THEY MAKE IT AND OH THEY ARE CLEVER! rush -- rather than a horror movie type of rush.) I also enjoyed the first half of Fight Club? /dies. And tv-wise, i love Scrubs, have watched all of Friends, am developing a strange crush on House, and ...watch design shows and cooking shows all the time with my family.

Favourite music: the best place to look is probably my last.fm. (currently 'good time' by leroy is stuck in my head/trying to become my theme song xD) i like all different types of english music (cobra starship, tegan & sara, lykke li, shakira, metric, jason mraz, stars, dragonette, the beatles, marilyn manson, eminem, loreena mckennitt, placebo, sam sparro, MIKA, modest mouse, bush, beck, tricky, marina & the diamonds, m.i.a., matt nathanson, etc etc/all genres), jrock (miyavi, alice nine, gazette, kirito, etc), kpop (epik high, big bang, dbsk, super junior, after school) and other genres like classical music, celtic music ...i'm open to just about everything and i love it when people share new music with me. (: I REALLY WANT TO LEARN MORE FOREIGN MUSIC, i've been exploring spanish bands, but i'm curious about others as well!

What would you like to send/receive?: i'd like to start with emails (PM me and i'll give you my email!), i'm more comfortable getting to know someone before i give out my address, but i'm a huge fan of handwritten letters. they're so personal and special and really give you a sense of who the person is. so eventually, handwritten notes/long letters and photographs/trinkets would be lovely o:

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: i'm fine with anyone! i can only speak english fluently and i would love to speak to people who know spanish - i'm not even at conversational level (i took spanish for about a year and a half; i can read it reasonably well but have trouble responding/building proper sentences :/) but i'd like to learn more/just really admire the language. also, i do tend to get along with older friends, better, but i'm open to meeting anyone.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: any country is fine! i like learning about different cultures, so variety is nice o:

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") since i'm asking for emails to start with, nothing that i can think of!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: my dream package would be a stack of letters from different days of the week, along with little doodles or sticky notes, things that have meaning or make you smile, and little trinkets - like, the fortune from a fortune cookie or the leaf you found on the ground that caught your eye. I DON'T KNOW, I'M DORKY OKAY. 8|

Anything else you'd like to add?: i'm currently recovering from a serious chronic illness (CFIDS), so i'm not always sure how quickly i'll respond to emails, but i think that's part of the beauty of penpals - the letter stays and waits for you to answer it, unlike talking to someone in person or over instant messaging. and letters are personal in a different way o: also, i'm re-posting this (with a few alterations), and i want to apologize to the previous people who contacted me; i was going through a huge amount of personal struggles/changes in my life and wasn't able to keep up contact. things are settled down a bit more now (and i've recovered from my illness a bit more) so i have more energy for this (:
