Note: I don't register postcards I do not receive because it's part of the dynamics of sending snail mail, and it is against Postcrossing's rule.
Hi, my name is Dina. I'm a clinical psychologist and lecturer in a Psychology Department in a university in Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm currently pursuing my PhD, doing research in Indonesia and in the Netherlands, so if you have any experiences or advice to give to me regarding pursuing higher education, please share it with me! My research topic is Expressive Writing, a psychological intervention to alleviate stress and negative emotions.
I love any living thing in a postcard, like humans, children, animals or trees/plants. Any black and white photography or art related themed postcard would be great. I prefer single view than multi-view postcards, preferably without any writing on the front page/picture page. You can also send postcards that make you feel happy and tell me the reason.
I drink tea every day, so if you have a great tea in your country, I'd appreciate it if you can send me a sample (like a tea bag) in your post with an unwritten/blank postcard and a note, and I'll send back postcard and tea or any small things fit inside an envelope if you include your address.
I think it is nice to consider any postcrosser's preference and checking out their received and favorite wall before picking out a postcard to send. I do it all the time, and I think others should try to do the same courtesy.
Please write down the date and your Postcrossing username on the postcard, thank you.
Life is too short. Make your mark. Write something. Start with postcards :-)
