paenq(or Pauliina) is a member from Finland . She has been a member for over 7 years (2609 days).
I'm 32 years old, single, in love with small miracles of life, e.g. morning dew, birds flying in freedom, watching waves, bright colors, old books, profound thoughts, poetry, encounters with strangers. Every postcard is a treasure, a piece of someone's soul. That's why I love the pics and the messages alike.
I'm a theologian (with master's degree in church history), and I'm currently teaching religion (church history, bible studies, ethics & world's religions) to 7th-9th graders. My degree enables me to work as a pastor in the Lutheran Church of Finland as well. My hobbies are portrait drawing, motorcycling, knitting & crochet, classical singing, opera, gym & badminton, and I like to read books dealing with philosophy, medieval history or papacy. I own two Italian greyhounds, a cat and two budgies, so, I love animals! I'm also a dedicated vegetarian.
Oh, and I simply adore Belgian trappist & abbey beers!
Postcards are very welcome! Feel free to write about any specialties of your country or daily life!
Ps. I'm not a big fan of wishlists or "don't send me this & that" concerning postcard themes. I've received hundreds of fabulous cards; every card will be greatly appreciated as long as you like the chosen card yourself. :o)
Pps. After more than 2700 received & lovely postcards I got a card with rude comments on my avatar pic. In case anyone else is wondering; I'm not teasing my dog in any way. The photo is fake, and I just wanted to thank the person who knitted the green hat for the dog. Italian greyhound is a breed that needs clothes during wintertime, at least in Finland. Would you go outside naked when it's -20°C?
Dear friends, please be kind to each other!
