I work as a archivist and records manager for a university. My academic background is in history and library science, but I'm also interested in biology and genetics.
Born in Treaty 2 territory, raised in Treaty 1 territory and the traditional homeland of the Metis Nation, lived in Treaty 6 (1796) and the traditional ancestral and unceded territories of the O-ga-xpa, Osage, Choctaw and Chitimacha Indian Tribes, and am currently living in Treaty 5 territory.
I prefer any cards except ad-cards.
If you're from the UK, I would LOVE the Royal Mail Commemorate, Respect Remember stamps that are coming out in May, (https://www.cwgc.org/learn/news-and-events/news/2020/04/27/15/10/special-commemorative-stamp-series-features-cwgc-sites)
I like historic areas and monuments and cool nature shots.
I'm very interested in WW2 and WW1, so cards of military monuments, etc. would be great! I also love watching Star Trek (especially DS9 and Enterprise), M*A*S*H, West Wing, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Stargate (especially Atlantis), and WW2 movies.
I enjoy reading, especially military history and some science fiction/fantasy--Anne McCaffrey, Harry Turtledove, G.R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan and J.R.R. Tolkien are among my favourites. I also enjoy cross-stitching and Toastmasters.
I also like animals, especially baby ones. I had a big black cat at home, rescued from a shelter. Unfortunately he was put to sleep on March 29, 2018. I'm a huge fan of animal shelters/rescues.
I've visited the United States, France and Belgium. I lived in the US for 6 years, in Arkansas and Louisiana. I'd love to travel more, but until I win the lottery I'll have to do it through postcards!
I'm sorry, but I don't register cards that I haven't gotten..
I have horrendous handwriting. I do try to make all my cards legible, but I don't always succeed. I've tried and tried to improve it. Maybe I should have been a doctor instead?
After hearing from people worldwide....it seems that the stereotype of doctors having bad handwriting is universal! I wonder where it got started?
