Greetings from the heart of the Blue Ridge! This part of the Appalachian Mountains is home to some of the oldest mountains in the world. I'm lucky to live on top of one of those mountains. I work as a librarian at a public library and I live with my partners, two cats, a black lab/hound dog, and lots and lots of books.
**I am fine with any card you send.**
If you're like me and enjoy picking just the right card from your collection for another Postcrosser, I collect these: https://i.imgur.com/dCxrZ3t.png
My favorites are cards I have actually received. My Flickr album has cards available for trade: https://flickr.com/photos/145562190@N02/albums
It's okay to send me oversize postcards, shape cards, metered postage, cards in envelopes, ad cards, Zazzle/Touchnote cards, homemade cards, a part of a food container, etc. Have fun decorating and writing on your card!
I also like receiving the card in your "postcards to send" box that has been there forever. If you don't know a single person who would want it, now you do! Send it to me please. ^_^
However! **I am fine with any card you send.**
I decided to make my profile more about me and less about the cards I want. XD
I am a third-generation librarian and I've been working in libraries since I was 15 years old. I have a degree in English and a degree in library and information science.
I co-wrote a book. I'm the second author. https://www.amazon.com/dp/0764348418
I started a web store with my girlfriend where we sell tie-dye clothing, jewelry, and postcards: https://www.twofoldtiedye.com
I stream video games on Twitch. http://twitch.tv/chieflyill
We have an Instagram just for animal photos: @casablacksburg
I sometimes write secrets on my postcards, or things that bother or worry me. I find catharsis in unburdening my heart to strangers.
Please write on the card you send! I like reading messages from Postcrossers around the world. Don't know what to write? Here are some suggestions:
■ Do you have pets? If not, what kind of pet would you like to have?
■ What book are you reading right now? What is your favorite?
■ Do you make any crafts (sewing, knitting, scrapbook)?
■ What are you studying in school? What is your favorite class?
■ If you could spend a week visiting any place on Earth, where would you go? What would you do?
■ Where is your favorite place to go for a walk where you live?
■ If you have a Steam ID or Nintendo ID, share it and let's be friends.
You can talk politics to me. This is not the America we can be and I'm working towards a better country and future for everyone, not just an elite few.
Stay safe out there in quarantine! Stay inside, save lives.
**I probably will spell your name wrong when thanking you for your postcard. I apologize in advance!**
**USPS is very slow right now due to a deliberate attempt by the President to sabotage mail-in ballots before the November presidential election.**
