Gender: Female

Location: London, UK

Languages: English and (crappy) Spanish

Occupation: Student

About Me: This is always hard! I'm an 18 year-old student in her last year of school and not planning on going to university. I write stories, play piano and look after rescue hamsters in my spare time, amongst other things. 16th / 17th / 18th century European history is my jam. (That sounds awful. XD)

Movies: Pirates of the Caribbean, Shaun of the Dead, Let the Right One In, The Simpsons Movie, Beowulf

Books: Legend Trilogy, The Witcher Series, Birds of Prey Trilogy, Frankenstein, Lord of the Flies. I tend to put my energy into writing over reading, though when I do read a book, I really enjoy it.

Music: Elvenking, Avantasia, Nightwish, Korpiklaani, D, A(ACE), Woodkid, Cradle of Filth, Phoenix Rising, Eluveitie, Ensiferum, Alestorm. I generally listen to folk and power metal, though I also enjoy rock, soundtracks and the occasional group, like Pendulum or Mystery Skulls.

How many pen pals do you have? One at the moment

How many do you want? As many as want to speak to me. :)

Do you want email pals? I don't check my emails that often, but if anyone would prefer that, then sure!

Do you want snail-mail penpals? Yes please

How long are your letters? That completely depends. I usually cover two sheets in fairly small handwriting, but it'll probably change depending on how long a letter I'm replying to.

How long does it take you to reply to a letter? Within the week

Do you prefer male or female? Either

Age? No preference

Where would you prefer them from? Anywhere. It would be fun to have a European or Asian penpal, but I honestly don't mind.

What are you looking for in a pen pal? Anyone fun! I love learning about foreign cultures and meeting new people who I can share a common bond with. I'd love to have a Spanish-speaking penpal who I can write to and practise the language with, but honestly, I'm open to anyone. Feel free to reply or send a message! ^^)/

Angry all the time...

The song "Angry all the time" By Tim McGraw used to have, such a different meaning for me...then say it did this used to spark a feeling of, that's how it's going to end..because some where I picked up that I was just this ball of hate, for no particular reason other than I could be...
As I've done all this thinking, and coming to realization lately... how I feel the need to fight automatically, and to prove my self, stand my ground, and not appear's about seeming weak.. it's about being easily over taken, and vulnerable... I couldn't ever show that.. it was like a invitation to getting my ass handed to me. Be it emotionally or physically.. whatever...
But......I wasn't just angry all the time for no reason.. I was scared.. I was terrified of what happened if I relaxed or let go of any of that fear...and anger was the best defense I kept me from kept me in the ring with him...instead of so beneath him like I felt...
I didn't realize how important it was going to be..that my mate did not want me beneath him but beside him...I didn't think much of it when he first made it a statement, that he was strong about....even with my submissive behavior..I brushed it off as something to be respected but nothing that struck me...but it is so much important that I thought it would be......
I know why, but I don't know when... being girly or feeling girly things bothered me so much... I know when I started acknowledging girly moments and trying to be okay with them... but there's this period in between that... I worked, worked at submerging these girly feelings and things that made me think I looked girly..I had the stupidest, high school girl "girly" moment... yesterday.. during sex. cliche like hell... It had a long though process that originally did not start off on the department of being girly. A couple cuming at the same time.. I've heard that this can be a big deal to some couples.. and I never understood why.... So it started the thought process of.. maybe it's the physical.. not like 'physical connection' but response.. because I never expect the response I get, when that occurs between heightens, intensifies, and leaves me breathless...I don't know if that's shared between male/female..but maybe that's why I feel it made me feel so girly to recognize this and think about moved my thoughts to the emotional/mental side of the, self had conversation.... Part of my brain wanted to immediately get defensive and snarl it's just sex, and it was a fantastic orgasm, appreciate it for it is..was..but I's not just sex...I don't know that I am capable of just 'sex', something always attaches emotionally to him during intimacy, and brings it beyond sex; even during a quickie.. which ugh that seems girly and sentimental too...and...this war of that's okay and no that's not okay occurs...

Skipping totally another direction...
WE had this conversation about discouraged...and defeat.... I did know what i was getting into when I made these decisions.. that in the long run these decisions would be best..and it would be a few hard months, vs possible a few hard I could have surgery be down a year and so concerned with what I wasn't doing.. though I am thinking it's going ot be harder than I originally thought...
especially this holiday... So many things I feel like I can't take care of.. Kind of also reminds me how much of a horrible person I was at time...making sure things got taken care of, and things I've done to make sure they did get taken of.
I've made sure that, I have none of that guilt on me, while he & I Have been together and that I changed that part of my life... because I didn't want that being a skeleton in our closet, or something between us, or something that would be guilt in general... it was for a long time..but... I also did what I had to...or what I felt I had make sure that things were taken care of doesn't matter now...because i'ts not occurring.. I'm not...that's not part of my life anymore...
Things like that, make me feel not good enough..but...he tells me 'my past is my past, as long as it's my past'... it makes me bitterly think that, yeah your past is your past, until someone finds out something that really rubs against them the wrong way about your past, then it becomes a window to the past from the future you sit..and that can be a dark sky on that horizon....

Ever think about how many songs you know, that hold something to your memory and heart..that if not for a person you care about, you'd never pay that song any mind..
I had 'leather" by Tori Amos, stuck in my head yesterday... I would have never listened to Tori Amos.. except I heard it so many times, I started singing along..then I started listening to the lyrics, then I started finding little things that caught me... I occasionally think about that concept when a song comes up that catches me off guard, when someone sings it around me... anyone...maybe it's just a product of stereotyping too much.
"I love you , but I'll leave you, I don't want you , but I need you"

Calm I have decided, I don't think suits me...I'm not sure if I like how it feels or not yet.. sometimes I enjoy it..sometimes it feels right and it feels incredible..and then sometimes I feel like I want to claw out of my skin and that somethings wrong that it's not right..but I realize that...Im safe and that there's nothing to worry for..and I maybe just...maybe Just don't know what to do with myself, I think that's the whole of it..some times I don't know what to do with how I am i am feeling... Breaking really hard... changing how you respond to things is difficult as well.

Name: Myra

Age/Birthday: 22 / 22 Oct 1992

Location: Singapore

Language Spoken: English

About me:This is always the toughest part. I'd say I'm a simple kind of person? An 'anything goes' kind of person. I'm easily amused (that's a good thing right?!). I love writing letters and I adore cats. Pokka green tea is the best drink ever. Currently majoring in Sociology. And wondering how am I already 22.

Hobbies/Interests: I'll elaborate more below but mainly reading books/manga, scrapbooking, watching anime, writing letters and collecting little trinkets.

Music: Kpop. Lots of it actually (there's too many to list). IJPOP (mainly boybands from JE) and jpop rock bands like Flumpool. All Time Low, McFly, Imagine Dragons, One Direction (yes, I know), Big Time Rush, and some old stuff like Backstreet Boys/N'Sync. Basically I listen to bits and pieces of everything.

Books: It's impossible to express my love for crime thriller novels. I read anything that captures my attention. I've not been reading much lately and would appreciate recommendations! (And I love reading horror mangas!)

TV Shows: Doctor Who, Merlin, Castle, Hannibal, Sherlock Holmes, Big Bang Theory, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Modern Family. Lately, I've been watching old Power Ranger series (Mighty Morphin ftw!). About to get started on Game of Thrones (and I have people telling me not to get emotionally attached to it). (Korean TV Shows: Running Man, We Got Married, Weekly Idol and etc)

Anime: D.Gray Man, Ghost Hunt, Fairy Tail, Bleach, Free!, Attack on Titan, Kuroshitsuji and there's others but I'm just listing off what's at the top of my mind.

How many penpals do you have: None at the moment since I lost touch with most of them :(

How many do you want: The more the merrier, yessssssssss.

Do you want e-mail penpal: Please feel free to inbox me for my e-mail address! c:

Snail Mail penpals: YES PLEASE.

How long are your letters: If I'm using those cute little paper thingies, then it'd be pretty long about (about 5-6 pages). But my letters can get pretty rambly...

How long does it take for you to reply to a letter: If I'm ridiculously busy, then I'll probably reply a week after I receive the letter. But I try not to hold it off for too long.

Male or female penpal: Anything's cool with me.

Age: Preferably 18 and above.

What are you looking for in a penpal: I think it'll be fine as long as we have stuff to talk about. A penpal that I can talk about anything and everything with.

Location of penpal: Anywhere is fine!

34 female in Arizona.

Name Kismet

Location Phoenix Arizona.

In a relationship with my girlfriend for 3 plus years. (I consider her my wife)

Stay at home wife.

No kids, but we plan to have them in a couple years

I have Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, and I am on the Autistic spectrum. I will admit I don't have the best grammar and my writing can be all over the place when I am having an emotional day. I have social anxiety too, so pen pals are a great way for me to know more people.

I am pansexual, and wife and I am are in an open relationship.

I love Lady Gaga (ok obsessed, she is a comfort of mine). I like watching History channel, and TLC. My fave books are usually Hobbit, Harry Potter, and books by Ken Follett, and Judy Blume.

I would like snail mail pen pal. I have one already that I met on this journal and she is awesome. So maybe just one or two more pen pals would be awesome.

I am kinda interested in a foreign pen pal. I only can speak and write English (which I wish I could learn more, because more knowledge is always better)

Someone around my age preferable (mid 20's or higher)

If you’re interested, please send me an e-mail or a message on here.

ben howard


Heia, Hola, Hello, Anneyong~ (just to prove that I can use google)

Name: Keisha

Age: 24

Birthday: 5th Jan

Gender: Female

Location: Currently in Norway, but it changes a lot.

Languages Spoken: English and Norwegian. If my life depended on it, I could probably ask for food and a backhug in Spanish and Korean.

Religion: None.

Relationship status: Single.

About me: Gosh, what does one say about oneself? I'm pretty much a bit of a social anti-social person who enjoyes baking, traveling and reading a lot. Got a bit of a obsessive personality (not in the creepy stalker/serial killer way, but in the sense that I can get very hung up on things very quickly and passionalty) and a cat. I want to live in a lot of different countries, drink a lot of wine and eat a lot fo great food in brilliant company.

Hobbies/Interests: Travel (is there anything better?), reading, listening to some brilliant turnes, wasting my life away by watching kdrama... I also adore learning languages and I'm currently trying to learn Korean and Spanish. Too bad I have no self disiplin... I love football and F1, too. By the way, can drinking tea be considered a hobby?

Music: There's a lot. And it changes all the time. But I do enjoy Ben Howard an awful lot, as well as Tom Odell, Gabrielle Aplin, 10cm, PeterPan complex, Standing Egg, a bunch of Norwegian artists and as of the past few months; Kpop (mostly YG stuff, but I'm pretty much all over the board with a bit of Eddy Kim, Parc Jae Jung, JYJ, GOT7 and so on). But yeah, a lot of singer/songwriter stuff and indie for the most part.

Books: I read quite a bit when I find time for it, but most of the time, I don't though. But even if I've had a hard time finding good books lately, here are some of my all time faves: The Harry Potter series (especially book 3), A Tale for the Time Being, Kaninene synger i mørket, Martin The Warrior, anything by Haruki Murakami, the Jo Nesbø books about Harry Hole...

Movies: Disturbia, Breakfast At Tiffany's and Billy Ellot (a bit of an odd mix, isn't it?).

TV Shows: I just recently got back into watching TV shows, actually! Well, Korean television that is. Kdrama is so addictive it's beyond me how I'm even writing this right now and not watching. Some of my fave shows are: We Got Married, Missing You (I'm still sobbing), Secret Garden, Emergency Couple, Running Man, Mix & Match (ah, the heartbreak!), The Moon That Embraces The Sun, Rooftop Prince... actually, there are too many to name. As for non-Korean... I hold Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls and The O.C very dear to my heart. This was my teenage years~~ I've also been very fond of Doctor Who, Merlin and Sherlock Holms. And I watch those dorky sports animes. :3

How many penpals do you have?: A few, but life keeps coming in the way, so letters are often far and inbetween.

How many do you want?: No restriction, really.

Do you want email penpals?: Yes, my inbox does get lonely at times. It needs love, too.

Do you want snail mail penpals?: I do indeed!

How long are your letters?: Um... I think they're probably around 4 pages on average?

How long does it take you to reply to a letter?: It depends on what's happening in my life, but as of right now, I have so much spare time on my hand that I want to cry and then I comfort myself with dramas.

Would you like your penpal to be male or female?: Doesn't matter to me.

Age of penpal: 18+

What are you looking for in a penpal?: Usually you find something to share and talk about regardless, but of course it would be fun to write with someone who has similar interests. So as long as they are willing to share a bit of their life with me, I'll welcom them with blank pages (or something profound like that).

Where would you like your penpal to be from?: No ristrictions! Most of my pen pals are from the States and England though, so it would be nice to write to someone who lives somewhere else. But it would be foolish of me to give up writing to an amazing person just because they came form the US/UK! So Anywhere~

I also have tumblr. Whether or not it will tell you who I am, I don't know. It might make you think that I made a mistake when typing my age. That it should be a 1 instead of a 2. But I have not.

I live with my boyfriend who I have been with for 4 and a half years, and my 2 guinea pigs :) Im a huge animal lover (except from spiders as I have arachnophobia) , I have a dog but she lives with my parents. Can't wait to get more pets when I buy a house. Im very much a autumn/winter person.

I really want to get another pen pal who I have a lot in common with and who likes to keep in contact

Im a bit of a geek, love science stuff, sci-fi, loot crate etc. i love all kinds of films from horrors to chick flicks and romance. I watch a lot of programs too! I started running a few months ago but due to moving I haven't been able to keep it up, but want to continue it once I get myself sorted!

Music: I love most kinds of music. My ipod is full of all kinds, favourites being Coldplay, Oasis, Jimmy Eat World, Ellie Goulding, The Saturdays, Little Mix, Bon Jovi, Sweet, Status Quo.... the list is pretty endless. I also love the good old 90s dance music as thats my era :)

My favourite films would probably be The Notebook, My Sisters Keeper, Alice in Wonderland (the disney animated version), Inception, Hide & Seek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lion King, Anchorman, Role Models, The american pies....again the list is endless

Video Games: The Sims, Minecraft, Little Big Planet, Mario Kart, Skyrim, Pokemon (for ds) are the main ones. I play a few others too.

Just to name a few :P

Pen pal Info:
Do you want email pals? I'd prefer snail mail, but I wouldn't mind emailing if I found the right person
Do you want snail mail pals? Yes! I miss snail mailing people! I normally only have 2-3 penpals at any time because I think its better to get to know them rather than having loads that you lose track of :)
How long are your mails? It can depend, I normally try and do at least a page of A4 but it can be more :)
Reply time? I will always reply within 3-5 days of receiving the letter :) obv depending on where the person is from it may take a couple of week between our letters but I'm happy with that :)
Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Female
Where would you like them to be from? I don't mind. I think it would be cool to talk to someone from US or Australia but I'm not fussy tbh!
Age preference? Someone roughly my age, so 22-26 I think
What are you looking for in a pen pal? I'd love to find someone who is roughly my age and has a lot of common with me so we have lots to talk about! Someone who is not just gonna send a couple of letters and not be bothered anymore, I want a long term friend for life! :) ideally they won't have too many other pen pals themselves - just because I think you get to know a pen pal better if you arent talking to like 20 others at the same time. I love having a pen pal and I had a really good friendship with the ones I had as a teenager, so I guess I'm looking for the same sort of thing. I just want a new friend really! :)
