About April...

I am 32 years old and live near Flint, Michigan where I work as a high school English teacher. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2006 where I studied literature, history, archeology and Russian. I completed my M.A. in English Literature at the University of Michigan in 2013 and am very happy to be done with school! I am married and have no children, but do have three cats. I like to try new things and have had many hobbies over the years including polo and fencing. What I like to do most right now is travel when I can and make French and Austrian pastries. I also like to go to concerts and see plays and want to eventually see all of Shakespeare's plays preformed live. Currently, I have seen 21 of them and plan to see more this year.

Reading the messages is half the fun of getting postcards! I would enjoy hearing about anything you would like to share including fun facts about yourself or the area you live in. I would also like it if you could write a sentence or two in your language with an English translation.

I love most kinds of postcards, but I don't like Anne Geddes type children pictures or free advertisement cards unless they are not in English and are visually interesting and then I like them very much.

I would be particularly excited to get the following types of cards:
-I am a big fan of the TV show The Highlander and would love a postcard of the famous bookstore in Paris called Shakespeare and Company that was shown in the series. This would really make my day!
-Cheburashka or Gena! The lovable Russian cartoon characters
-Single view tourist cards
-UNESCO Heritage sites
-Pictures of people in native dress
-Unique cultural objects
-Scandinavia and the world
-Art and illustrations including anime
-Anything funny, interesting, unusual, or unexpected! The surprise is what is so much fun!
