Hi there,

I'm on the lookout for a few e-mail pals who can put up with my ramblings (aka e-mails) & who can share theirs in return;-). I would prefer someone who can write e-mails containing more than a few lines, at least once a week. Sorry, but I don't see any point being "e-mail pals" and exchanging a one/two line e-mail in months. I'm open to hearing from anyone...errrr hmmm I can't promise that I won't be biased towards females - blame it on biology.

I spend a lot of time reading fiction-mysteries/thrillers (oh yeah, I love my cheap thrills), but isn't limited to any specific authors. I dig around the internet (especially amazon) and if something catches my fancy, I end up reading it & if happen to like the stuff, I will just get the authors entire collection. I also love travelling to new places. Sounds interesting, huh???

If you still want to brave it out exchanging e-mails with me do e-mail me at

Thanks for making it till this far.

Birthday: March 5th

Gender: Female

Relationship status: Single

About me: I'm a 20 year old pansexual, bi-racial, paraplegic. I only vaguely know what I want to do with my life, but I figure there's time? Or at least that's what I tell myself. I read a lot (my personal best is 2 books in 5 hours) and I'm currently writing a book. I may be addicted to tumblr and I have a tendency to fall in love with fictional characters as easy as I breathe. It's terrible, really.

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, tumblr, music, laughing, singing, cupcakes, food, being lazy (does that count? it should totally count), sleeping, paint-by-numbers, spoken word, swearing, sarcasm, dancers on YouTube.

Music: Adele, Beyoncé, Bring Me The Horizon, Demi Lovato, Drake, Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes, Jay Z, Lights, Lil Wayne, Mayday Parade, Nicki Minaj, *Nsync, Panic At the Disco, The Piano Guys, Tchaikovsky, The Temptations, Travie McCoy, Tyga, Vitamin String Quartet, 2Cellos (+ more).

Books: [My Ultimate Favorites, in no order] Go Ask Alice, Speak, Thirteen Reasons Why, Because I Am Furniture, The Diary of A Young Girl, Identical, B (although, this is more a spoken word piece turned book. still, it's good stuff), How They Met, and Other Stories, The Lovers Dictionary: A Novel, Promise Not to Tell, Island of Lost Girls, Lolita, A Child Called "It", Bridge to Terabithia, Keeping You a Secret, My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, Vanishing Acts, The Pact: A Love Story, Plain Truth (pretty much everything from Jodi Picoult, seriously.

How many penpals do you have?: As of right now, none. But I've done this before.

How many do you want?: One of each would be cool.

Do you want email penpals?: Yes (for out of the country friends. Or ones in the country, too.)

Do you want snail mail penpals?: Yes. (I'm just running low on stamps, right now. You'll have to be a little flexible with me if I can't reply as quickly as I want, or if I have to reply via email or something. God, I hope that doesn't sound too bad?) I do have a TON of cards though, that I can send. Seriously. Tons.

How long are your letters?: 2 pages usually. Maybe more, maybe less.

How long does it take you to reply to a letter?: I usually reply the same day I get them, but like I said, I'm running a little low on stamps and with the wheelchair thing, I don't know how quickly I can get them again.

Would you like your penpal to be male or female?: I've never had a male penpal, but I'm willing to try, I suppose, even though I prefer female.

Age of penpal: 18+

What are you looking for in a penpal?: Someone to listen, someone who asks questions, someone who cares, someone who wants to know who I am/what I'm about. Someone who can be a little sassy/sarcastic, because I know I am. Someone who doesn't mind swearing -- I can cut it down some, but I might slip up. I'm just used to it.

Where would you like your penpal to be from?: Anywhere! (But if you are out of the country, I would prefer it if you used the email option. Please and thank you. :)

I'm not on here all that much, really, so if you see something you like and want to talk to me, please email me at and let me know you saw my post on here. I hope you all have a wonderful day/night!

P.S. I don't really know if you're interested but my tumblr is: (although I am a bit NSFW sometimes. You know, lady parts. gay sex. Very much homo intended. We could set something up through there, too, if you wanted.)

Hello All!

Name: Allison (You can call me Allie if you like.)
Sex: Female
Age: 24
Location: West Virginia, USA
Languages: English and French
Email: Comment on this post and I'll send it to you in a PM. :)

General: I am a graduate student at Marshall University; I am a Master of Arts candidate in Music Performance and a Master of Arts in Teaching candidate in Music Education. Music is pretty much my life, as you can probably tell. ;) I am a flutist and a violinist, although unfortunately I don't get to play violin much anymore. I am also very fond of research and academia in general, and have actually considered adding an MA in Music History as well. I love school and being on a college campus, and I love the exchange of ideas.

So just in case you don't already think I'm enough of a dork, let me tell you about my hobbies, lol. I love to read and I dabble in graphic design (you can see some of my stuff at coven_icons). I play World of Warcraft, but it is the only video game I've ever played and I don't really play much anymore because all of my friends who played have stopped. I also really enjoy spending time just talking with my friends, and engaging in real communication. I love to write letters as well, but I haven't had a penpal in a long time. I have a really wide variety of other interests as well - everything from archeology to genealogy research to ghost hunting to jewelry making. I always say that if you can't find at least one or two things that we have in common, you're probably a difficult person. ;)

Music: Nearly anything Classical, although my favorite composers are Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Britten, and Devienne. I also really like Broadway, Folk, some Indie, and a few different types of ethnic music.

Books: My favorite books of all time are Jane Eyre and The Lord of the Rings. I love most anything written in the Victorian era, although for some reason I've never been able to finish anything written by Jane Austin (go figure, huh?). Other books on my notable mention list include Lolita, A Little Princess, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Historian, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Queen of the Damned, the Harry Potter series, A Tale of Two Cities, and Maggie Shayne's Wings in the Night series (a guilty pleasure).

Movies: All of the film adaptations of the above-mentioned books, anything Disney, particularly classic Disney Princess, Elf, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Mummy, Les Miserables (and most other movie-musicals), Legally Blonde, Shrek, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and The Count of Monte Cristo.

(I've probably left out quite a few movies and books, but I'm sure you get the picture.)

Penpal Info
How many penpals do you want? As many as want to write!
Snail mail or email? Either, although I prefer snail mail. I have also had some penpals where we actually wrote to each other through a special friend filter on Livejournal.
How long are your letters? At least 2 pages. It kind of depends on how much the penpal writes too.
How long does it take you to reply? Less than a week, unless there's some special circumstance.
Where would you like them to be from? Anywhere, so long as they're in English or French.
Age Preference? Between 18 and 35.
Gender? Either.

What are you looking for? I would really like to develop a very close friendship with someone, the kind of friendship where you tell them everything and are each other's closest confidant. But ordinary friendship is nice too, lol.

If you think we'd get along swimmingly, comment here and I'll message you my address or email address!
