I'm 30 and I live in the Finger Lakes region of New York state in the northeast United States. My avatar is me & Brainy Smurf in Times Square when I went there on vacation in April 2012. (I do not live in or near New York City!)
I've been Postcrossing since March 2006 and now my mom (freckles5148), my sister (jeanco1975) and my niece (Mikayla) and one of my cousins have all started Postcrossing as well.
I work at Cornell University taking care of research animals including rats, mice, cats and dogs. I even adopted four beagles from work named Dakota, Phoenix, Lady and Lexie. They are my kids!
I was born & raised on a farm and currently have 4 cats, 5 dogs, 4 rabbits, 14 goats, 2 cows and I adopted a donkey (Cracker Jack) and an Arabian horse (Tesla) also from Cornell. I guess it's a good thing I like animals! ;-D
My hobbies include:
-reading (favorite series include Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride by James Patterson, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Tiger's Curse series by Colleen Houck, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and more)
-Watching TV/movies (current fav. TV shows include Survivor, Grey's Anatomy, Spartacus, Revenge, Revolution, Once Upon A Time, True Blood, Dancing With The Stars and Vampire Diaries)
-Riding either of my two motorcycles (2012 CanAm Spyder & 2000 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 with sidecar)
-Coloring with crayons (yeah I'm just a big kid!)
I'm not picky about what kind of postcards I get. I like a variety so I'll be happy with anything and everything! Some of my favorites include:
*M.C. Escher (or similar)
*Baseball (or other sports & the Olypmics)
*Entertainment themed (movies, TV, singers, etc.)
*Tractors (especially John Deere as I have a 1934 John Deere AR tractor that I "claimed" as mine when I was 3)
*I recently updated my "favorites" gallery so now any cards I've favorited are cards I don't have. Maybe you have one of them you could send? Just let me know if you send me something that's a favorite so I can remove it.*
But I truly am happy with anything. I register cards usually the day I receive them or the day after and will upload a photo within a week (depending on the day of the week I receive your card).
If you send a card to me and it gets close to the 60 day expiration time, feel free to send me a message with the ID and I'll be more than happy to register it so that you can get another address to send a card to. I've recently received some cards that traveled 30+ days to get to me so wait until around the 45th day of traveling before sending me a message.
I'm sorry but I am no longer able to do direct/private swaps due to postage rate increases here in the US.
