About Irina...

Postcrossing is an enjoyable pastime and not the place for negativity of any kind. And it's about regular people, not their governments, politicians or generals. I really hope you think so too.
I'm against the war. It really hurts me. As a kindness, please, don't rub it in.
My name is Irina, I'm 36, live in Saint-Petersburg. I studied Culturology at university, but work in a company selling sanitary ware, plumbing and other bathroom/kitchen items - things happen this way, you know. I love reading, nature and music (incl. playing the piano). I do like to learn something new! I'm interested in languages, psychology, space, video and board games, needlework (e.g. cross-stitching) and much more. I'm also a big fan of biathlon.

Please, don't leave your card blank! Write your favorite book/song/movie, your mood at the moment, your pet, your view from the window, weather - anything! - or draw something :) I wait for not only a card itself, but also your message.
