About Ricarda...

Hello everybody from all over the world! :D I'm a scientist from Germany. Nice to meet you. If you want to know what kind of person I am, imagine this nerdy woman sitting on the couch with her laptop, a cup of tea and a stash of chocolate. Maybe I'm doing something math-y. Maybe I'm reading a book (that's likely to be fantasy, romance, or advanced math, not that there's much of a difference) or listening to music (from medieval, folk, classical and baroque music over rock and metal to ambient electronica - I will listen to really anything). Maybe I'm playing music. Maybe I'm playing online chess. If I'm not at the computer, I'm probably painting. I love my watercolors! I do mainly botanical illustrations, fantasy art and some illustrations for my own writing project. (I also create self-made postcards when I get the impression the recipient will be interested.)

I'm very interested in:

- minerals and rocks (<3)
- mathematics
- geology
- computers / informatics
- anything science (please NOT these "women in science" illustration cards, though: they're great, but I have the whole set!)
- sundials (<3 I'm obsessed)
- other old technical devices (navigational and astronomical purposes, but also others)
- astronomy
- old maps and star charts
- chess (<3 I've been playing in a club since I was a child, tournaments and all)
- other games of strategy
- fountain pens (I collect them)
- libraries, old books
- begonias
- figure skating and ice dance (my all-time favorite skater is Yuzuru Hanyu but I like everybody.)
- soccer
- music (I play the piano, the clarinet, the celtic harp, and the zither. I appreciate typical / traditional instruments from all cultures)
- manga
- fantasy (mermaids, elves, fairies, dragons, mages, ... - I'm also fine with occult and "darker" stuff)
- tarot, runes, divination, magic
- fairy-tales, folk tales, mythology
- traditional clothes
- papercuts / silhouette art, shadow theater
- art by contemporary local artists
- Mo Dao Zu Shi / The Untamed / Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation (all versions/adaptations!) and other MXTX novels
- Baldur's Gate 3: I love Astarion
- political propaganda, political satire, military history (no worries; my interest is purely historical)
- something you like, maybe one of your hobbies (tell me about it!)
- any card in my favorites; I have not received those yet
- selfmade cards - always the best (<3 <3 <3 I appreciate the work that goes into your own photos, collages or drawings!)

Of course I'll love any card you want to send me! :) Thank you! I appreciate pretty stamps. If you're sending in an envelope and it's no extra postage in your place, I'd also enjoy a tea bag - but only if that's no extra trouble. The most important thing is the message, anyway! Tell me something about you, your life, and what you're interested in! :)
