If you feel disgusted writing to me, writing to a Russian — I guess that's OK, I too am disgusted with what my country stands for right now. I do not support this war and try to do what I can to change things.
My name is Daria, I'm 29 and I live in Moscow, Russia.
🇪🇬 I majored in Arabic language and also speak a bit of German. I work as a manager in a big boring corporation.
🧵 In my free time I enjoy needle felting, knitting, embroidering and crocheting hats for my friends' cats — that's the only thing I know how to crochet :) I've got a sewing machine but haven't yet learned how to sew anything. Instead I watch sewing videos on YouTube. It totally counts, right?
🎁 My favorite activity in the world is wrapping presents :)
🎲 Every Friday I go out to play board games with my friends (recommendations are welcome). My favorite games so far are "Wavelength", "Stay away!" and "We're doomed".
🌱 I am vegetarian. This year I've set myself a challenge to "cook through" a whole vegetarian cookbook. If you know any good vegetarian or vegan recipes, maybe you could recommend me one?
Other things I enjoy:
- book covers;
- Grumpy Cat and Pusheen;
- Pikachu and Pokémon in general;
- ALL birds and animals but especially OPOSSUMS, raccoons and capybaras (I am totally OBSESSED with opossums. I've never seen one - there is not a single one in Russia, not even as an exotic pet, so I follow like a million opossum accounts on instagram. They are THE CUTEST);
- handmade cards (no cards made out of packaging, please);
- cute dogs and puppies! ❤️❤️❤️ A card with a picture of a rough collie would make my day! They are my favorite, but I love all dogs so, so much.
If you have a picture of your dog printed postcard-style (on good sturdy card paper that will survive a long trip), feel free to send it to me!
(well, all pets are welcome actually)
