I am a University student, I am in my fourth year of a HBA in History with an Indigenous Learning add on.
Three years ago I learned a smidgen of Punjabi (Gurmukti script if you are interested). I don't understand it at all but it would be fun to receive a post card written in Punjabi if someone who writes it catches my addy.
There is no where in the world I would rather be than Canada, but I love to learn about new places!
After over a year of postcrossing I think I have come to decide that I would prefer not to receive postcards in envelopes. Whenever posisble please don't put your cards in envelopes. I scrapbook my cards and feel compelled to include the envelope no matter how oversized it is, this interrupts the flow of my scrapbook. PLUS, I like to see the card stamped and inked from it's travels and all beat up and handled!
Thanks a bunch!
My apology regarding the postcard wall: I totally LOVE the wall and seeing my own cards up there, so I am sure you do too. I want to put what I receive there for everyone to see but getting those cards onto the computer and downloaded onto the website is far far too involved a project for me to do while I am focusing on school. I am sorry your cards haven't made it up there. Perhaps when I have more time to dedicate to this fabtastic hobby I can do that too. For now, I will just have to send and receive!
The last thing I want to say is that please give postcards a chance to make it through the mail. Some countries have terrible postal service, although Canadian postal service is generally swift, postcards just seem to take a long time. I am patient enough to let the postal service and postcrossing do their magic, I am not over concerned about the length of time it takes to receive or send. Please be courteous in the same way and refrain from emailing me to find out if I received your postcard. I always register postcards the day I receive it, emailing me will not make it arrive any sooner. If you can't refrain from sending me emails asking if your postcards arrive, do no expect a reply. If I got it I will register it, if I don't get it, oh well. There is not a pile of postcards sitting in my office that I steeple my fingers over and laugh nefariously about how people are waiting to hear that I got them.
