First things first: you can send me any postcard. 💌 I love all kinds of cards and snail mail in general, so feel free to send me anything. Handmade, folded, seasonal and ad/free cards are welcome, too! Birthday cards in August/September would be lovely surprises. 🎉
My name is Janita. I’m a 27-year-old radiographer. ☢️ I work in a large hospital with many different modalities of medical imaging. My significant other works as a research engineer researching biogas. We live in Mikkeli, a small town on the shore of Lake Saimaa, the fourth largest natural freshwater lake in Europe. In my freetime, I volunteer at an animal shelter. 🐾 I take care of the cats and quarantine animals there, and it’s very rewarding. At home we have three degus: Hemmo, Kaapo and Mauno. They’re 2-year-old brothers, and they bring so much joy to our life. 🐹 They love sleeping on top of each other, running on their wheel and chewing on everything and anything.
I love colours, especially deep turquoise. I enjoy gazing at the night sky – it makes me feel small and meaningful at the same time. I enjoy rainy weather and inhaling fresh air filled with nature’s scents. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie who could probably live on a rollercoaster! My dearest hobby and passion is writing prose and poetry. In addition, I find joy in reading (my favourite writer is Stephen King), knitting, drinking tea, listening to podcasts (true crime) and music (especially oldies goldies, such as Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Roger Hodgson), singing, and picking mushrooms. I play Dungeons & Dragons in two fantastic campaigns, as a gnome rogue and as a dwarf ranger. Like most Finns, I’m interested in ice hockey. I find mazes, labyrinths and mysteries fascinating, and I like street art. I adore C-3PO from Star Wars, and droids and robots in general. I’m part of the LGBTQA+ community and passionate about human rights and social equality. I love the Eurovision Song Contest and the way it connects people.
I’m a language geek. 📖 Feel free to write to me in English, auf Deutsch, på svenska/dansk/norsk, eesti keeles or suomeksi! I enjoy traveling, too. 🌍 I lived in Denmark for a few months as an exchange student, and most of my childhood summers I spent in Estonia, because my mother is from there. My boyfriend and I have a mission: we are trying to attend as many Worldcons as we possibly can! Our first was Helsinki in 2017, and in 2019 we were in Dublin. In 2020 we were planning on traveling all the way to New Zealand, but unfortunately COVID-19 had other plans and we ended up attending the event from the comfort of our home.
Thank you! ❤️
P.S. I scan all the cards I receive, as I love to show them in a “traveled” state! ✨
P.P.S. Liebe deutsche Postcrossers! 🇩🇪 In einigen Monaten werden wir nach Deutschland umziehen, weil mein Mann einen neuen Job in Stuttgart gefunden hat. Vielleicht könnten Sie uns etwas über Baden-Württemberg oder das Leben in Deutschland erzählen? 🤗 Vielen Dank!
