Bonjour, je suis Irène! Vous pouvez me tutoyer. はじめまして！アイリンといいます。Привет, я Ирина! Можно на "ты":) Вітаю! ✌️
I love math and do some calculus every day, sketch in watercolor, enjoy black coffee sans sugar and once volunteered at the Olympic Games. I used to live in my beloved Ukraine, and now I reside in beautiful British Columbia in Canada.
I am a polymath and a serial career changer. The most recent change has been from translation into computer programming. Fun facts: I was one of the Russian translators of Magic the Gathering🎴 and now I am an open source contributor!
My recent fascination is Brene Brown and her books and talks. I'm also into mindfulness and have an interest for Buddhism.
I am really curious about you! Please, tell me about yourself and your interests! What do you do for living? What book or movie would you recommend? If you're not a writer - draw me an owl! I love owls very much, and I would be thrilled to meet an owl from your country XD
I welcome any kind of cards - ad cards, hand-made, folded cards, religious cards, greeting cards, in envelopes, without envelopes... ❤️❤️❤️
If you embrace the sport of finding The Perfect Card, here are several specific things I especially like, in alphabetical order:
❤️ Akira Kurosawa (photos, stills from films, film posters, paintings — anything, I am a big fan)
❤️ Cinema, especially silent era
❤️ Old-timer and retro cars
❤️ Olympic Games
❤️ Studio Ghibli and especially Isao Takahata
❤️ Unusual cards (like jigsaw-puzzle-cards, cards with musical records, weirdly shaped cards, interesting ad cards, weird historical cards etc.)
❤️ Vintage (pre-1950s) city-views (reprints inclusive)
I always appreciate beautiful stamps!
P.S. Generally I'm not interested in direct swaps currently, but if you're looking for a pen-pal (postcards or letters) — let me know ;)
Thank you very much!
