Also I need to learn French for study abroad next year, so someone should teach me via mail. :P

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! I'd love to learn about people's experiences around the world.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Naked pictures.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Something actually interesting.

Name: Jackie... or Red. I go by Red on the internet a lot.

Age: 22

Location: Massachusetts, USA

How do you identify?: Bisexual woman... well, really I'm more gender indifferent, which I guess is what "pansexual" is, but I don't like the word. It's a personal choice.

What would you like to send/receive?: Just e-mail and IM right now

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

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere, as long as you can speak English, because the only other language I can speak is Bad, Broken Spanish. And I shan't embarrass myself to native Spanish speakers with my terrible Spanish-language skills.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not taking physical mail right now, thanks. It's a privacy thing. : )

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Oh, anything. I'm just looking for new people to talk to, really. I like making new friends. \o/

Anything else you'd like to add?: I have a very subversive sense of humor so please take anything I have to say with a grain of salt. /o\

Name: Skye on the internet, and Paige in real life. You can call me Fluffy Floo-Floo if you want, as long as I know you're talking to me.

Age:
14 (Am I the only kid here? ._.)

Location:
Massachusetts, US

How do you identify?:
Bisexual, Biologically female, and I'm not sure what my gender is called. It's fluid - sometimes really girlish and sometimes really boyish.

Interests/hobbies:
Drawing, painting (occasionally), writing, photography, Animated Music Videos, fursuiting, swimming, sleeping, and eating C:

Favourite books:
The Sight, Fell, Stuck, The Supernaturals, I Am a Strange Loop, the His Dark Materials trilogy, the Artemis Fowl series, Never Cry Wolf, the Bleach manga, and the Soul Eater manga.

Favourite films:
Transformers, Avatar, The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp, Bolt, The Other Hyourinmaru, Balto, Balto 2, Felidae, All Dogs Go To Heaven, Happy Feet, Roadside Romeo, Mean Girls, The Proposal, Iron Man, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Wars <3 (The last three are the best, imo), and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Favourite music:
Anything that isn't Country or Jazz. My favourite bands include Linkin Park, 3OH!3, Avril Lavigne, Hollywood Undead, Lady GaGa, Lights, Owl City, Pendulum, Red, Rihanna, Yellowcard, Ke$ha, and various other bands.

What would you like to send/receive?:
Anything! I can send mix CD's (as long as I can actually find any blank ones in my house! We're pretty messy..), I can send little finger- or hand-puppets I make, or necklaces or feathers or rocks... Well, anything I think. Unless it's illegal or something.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
Anyone, I guess.. As long as it's mostly if not all in English. It's the only language I'm fluent in.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
I would prefer the United States, but any country is fine. I'm taking French in school, so I might be able to write on some level in it, but I would prefer to write in English. Just so I know what I'm saying, anyway.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
No dead things, please. I mean I'm all for bones and skulls, but fake ones are my favourite ;_; Also I think food would be hard to send through the mail, especially things that can be crushed or go bad. But that's about it ^^

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
A nice letter, especially with direct questions (those are easier for me to answer), maybe some little trinkets or something.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
My letters always turn out to be really short. I can usually get up to three pages, but getting past that is the hard part for me. It's just my style of writing, I'm very short and to the point. Maybe it's from how I speak, I don't know. I'm not very good at being serious unless it's a serious topic that I'm passionate about. (Gay marriage, animal rights, etc..)

Picture (optional):
It's kind of crappy, but eh. I never like pictures of me anyways. OH OH And my camera's date lies. This was taken... Some time last year. Well.. After September and before April. I think.
