getting back into it

Name : Nicky
Age : 28. 29 in June.
Location : Illinois
Languages : English, some French, even less Russian.
Occupation : I work backstage in theatre. Logistics person.

About me
I work in the entertainment business, backstage. I've recently emerged from grad school, moved from the east coast, and am in my first post-grad job.

Two cats live with me, and I enjoy homebody stuff like gardening, cooking, and knitting. I also like to go out with friends. I'm trying to be more social, but it's really freaking hard to make friends when you no longer have the constructs of an education system to help you out and tend to be somewhat introverted. I like shenanigans, drawing, painting, late night conversations that range from fart jokes to vaguely intellectual things. I like to travel, and am saving up money to be able to make that a more regular thing. Road-tripping with a tent is currently where it's at. I've been on one, loved it, and am planning my next one for this summer.

Shins, Antlers, Mumford and Sons, Illumineers, Guster, Garbage, Bjorn, Likki Li, St. Vincent, The Ramones, The Doors, classical... I like music :) I play the violin and am "learning" the banjo (it's been awhile. I may need to start over)

The BBC pride and prejudice, Shawn of the dead, Clue... I tend to lean towards comedies and lighter stuff. I also tend to not really watch stuff until it's been out for a long, long time.

TV Shows
I'm not much of a TV show watcher, so if you're interested in talking about television I am probably not your best bet. I enjoy Venture Bros, Archer, the Rome series. On the list to finish watching/catch up on: Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, House of Cards

Like movies, I tend to wait until it's been out for a few seasons and then I'll binge watch it.

Books : I love books! Currently reading the Goldfinch. The Hitchhiker's Guide series, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, a bunch of Neil Gaimen, World War Z, Cloud Atlas, A little bit of James Joyce, the Harry Potter Series, the Hunger Games, most of what Jane Austen wrote, Blankets by Craig Thompson, On Looking by Horowitz (which I thought was O.K), Blink: The power of thinking without thinking, by Gladwell, a bunch of classics... I'm currently chewing through a book a week, though Goldfinch is currently on week 2 (but it's thick).

How many pen pals do you have?
I currently have one penpal. I used to have 3-4, but grad school and life exploded and I fell behind.

How many pen pals do you want?
I would like to ease back in to this. 1-2 more.

How long are your letters?
Depends on what is being said. Shortest is probably a page.

Hand written or typed?
I preferred to make mine handwritten, but I'm determined to not let that prevent me from sending out a letter! So I'll accept (and probably do) either.

How long does it take you to reply?
Not longer than a week, though there's a chance I may go on tour in late July, so writing may become spastic until I get into a rhythm with that (if I do it).

Where do you want your pen pals to be from?
Anywhere! Out of North America would be cool. I would enjoy trying to write in French or Russian, but you'd have to expect some very rusty language from my end (haha).

What age should your pen pal be?
18 or older. Preferably mid twenties - mid thirties, but whatever.

Anything else?
I'm looking for friendship, people who may have common interests (or just one or two common interests), who enjoy writing and sharing thoughts on life. And cats.

wow, this got long...

Name : Ash.
Age : Twenty - Six
Location : Canada
Languages : English, some French, some Spanish.
Occupation : Hospitality.

About me : Well, I'm a free spirited girl always looking for an adventure. Most people that meet me say I'm brutally honest, and funny. I love making people laugh as well. I'm a dog and cat owner, they're my world. I am a huge animal lover. I have a passion for traveling and learning about cultures and religions. I also like to call myself a mini activist, I enjoy voicing my opinions on certain subjects (although I won't force it on you) I'm mature and old enough to agree to disagree without hard feelings, which means I also love protesting. A couple of words to describe me would be Reckless, Honest, Curious, Wild. I have two sisters, one who I no longer knowledge because of serious problems, and yes it does kill me a little. The other sister is also my world. I've also started living a healthy lifestyle this year, getting some weight off and generally just being happier with myself and life is important to me, so if you're on that sort of journey I think we could have some things to talk about. I'm a hockey fan, my home team being the Senators but I do have other favorite players on different teams as well. I love festivals and food, I have an unhealthy obsession with Nike or Supra sneakers. I love being creative, I could write fan fiction or a short story or do some creative journaling. I just recently transformed my bedroom into a Bollywood/Hindi inspired room, that was my major project. I love tattoos, but totally not down with piercings since I'm scared of needles, sounds odd right? aha. Read on..

Music : EVERYTHING! I can jam to just about every kind of music. I'm on a huge House and Country kick right now, sounds odd again right? Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Johnny Cash, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry. Avicii, Krewella, Ellie Goulding, Armin Van Buuren, Imagine Dragos, Alesso, Zedd, Diplo, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris. I love old school hip hop and Pop, Lorde, Tegean and Sara, Rihanna, Natalia Kills, The Vamps, Robin Thicke, Danny  Fernandez, Fefe Dobson. I also love 80's hair bands such as Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Guns n Roses. I even love Bollywood hits as well and Traditional Native American Pow wow drumming. Also Selena Quintanilla always has a place on my playlist.

Movies : Any brat pack movies. The breakfast Clue, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Farris Beullers day off, Heathers, The Outsiders. Dirty Dancing, The Bodyguard, Roadhouse, Footloose, Top Gun, Scareface, Goodfellas, The Godfather Trilogy, A Bronx Tail, My Cousin Vinny, Married to the Mob The Rocky Balboa series, Pulp Fiction, Clueless, Lords of Dogtown, Training day (or any movie Denzel is in) also any Mark Wahlberg movie and Vin Diesel Movie. The Town, Hunger Games, Mud, The Help, Captain Phillips.

TV Shows : Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Vikings, Rookie Blue, The Sopranos (I can watch it over and over again) North woods law, Ultimate Survival Alaska, Buying Alaska, Alaska State Troopers, Deadliest Catch, Alaska, The last Frontier, Flying wild Alaska (I'm in LOVE with Alaska) Yukon Gold, Yukon Men (In love with the Yukon also) Pretty much anything on Discovery Channel, Anything on the Food Network as well. Hockey, Manchester United Soccer, Big Bang Theory, Chicago Fire. American Horror Story, Pitbulls and Parolees, Animal Cops and anything on Nat Geo.

Books : Starting the Divergent series right now, but generally I like autobiographies, way to many to name though, I usually read two books a month. I've read the hunger games series, the Mortal Instruments series as well.
How many pen pals do you have? Zero right now.

How many pen pals do you want? : Maybe one or two until i get back into it, I have been without a penpal for a couple years.

How long are your letters? : Usually it depends how much I have to say in that particular letter, usually at least two pages.

Hand written or typed? : Sometimes both, and usually decorated or on cute paper.

How long does it take you to reply? No longer then a week or two.

Where do you want your pen pals to be from? : I would love someone from Alaska, the Yukon or Hawaii, or outside of North America, I have yet to have a penpal that wasn't from the US so I think that would be awesome. :)

What age should your pen pal be? Probably over Eighteen.

Anything else? : Not really. Just keep in mind that I'd like my penpal to be someone who has some things in common with me, someone who is not a religious extremist either please. Just be open minded. If you're interested leave a comment. :)

23/F/Indonesia looking for Anyone from Anywhere with Skype

Name: Christine
Age: 23
Location: Indonesia (Southeast Asia)
Occupation : Sales, but really want to have a new job.
Language: English, Indonesian, broken Japanese

About Me:

I have had my depressing days and can be bitter at times, but I am always trying to compensate that with being goofy and sarcastic. And I found that chatting with people helps me lift my mood due to its instant gratification and effectiveness in distracting me from the routine.

I work in the morning and try to get by until I can go home and get bored at home instead. I am looking for Skype buddies to textchat with at work and talk about funny stuff I find on the internet, the small number of movies I watch, and the silly-routine happenings. I'd say I am a great conversational partner and will put effort to keep the conversation going.

I already have some great skype buddies but I can always use some more! I do not care however old you are, or whatever you do, as long as you want to talk to me I will talk to you. It's 1 AM here as I am typing this and my brain is pretty tired at the moment, this intro may not be the best of all but if you have any questions, just ask away!

Current movies I have watched:
- Five Centimeters per Second (didn't like it).
- The Imposter (amazeballs).
- Dear Zachary (so depressing).
- How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (didn't think the title matches its plot, but well it was just OK).

TV Shows:
- South Park (have always loved it, and still loving it).

Top Three Books in order:
- Fifty Shames of Earl Grey (the parody of FIfty Shades of Gray) - Believe me when I say I have high standards!
- John Dies At The End by David Wong
- Dad is Fat by Jim Caffigan

Ready for this again :)

Name: Nikita, Niki, Kita
Age: 24
Gender: I'm a lady :)
Location: Oklahoma, Central US
Occupation: Stay At Home Mom
Language: English

About Me: I am pretty outgoing most the time, but I can have some random bouts of shyness. I like to eat candy, but try really hard not too.. It's my drug of choice. I have two kids and a husband, so I talk about them a lot as well. I also have a big family and tend to talk about them sometimes. I like to watch movies and read at the same time which irritates my husband but I am good at multitasking haha. I tend to drink way too much ice tea and not enough water. I love strawberry shakes and chocolate. They are the keys to my affection :) I am head over heels in love with my kids and love being a mom. I am about to celebrate five lovely years with my amazing husband. I love music!! It's becoming a big part of my daily routine. Paramore, Hillsong, The Red Jumpsuit Aparatus, Manafest, and OneRepublic are some of my faves. I am always adding to my playlist on YouTube. I also love books!! I tend to read more than I should and hope that my husband and kids don't fault me for it. I just can't help my love for books. I have a habit of sticking to the same type of books but I am willing to read something if it's a good book. Television and I have a serious relationship!! I watch a ton of shows and cant keep up with most of them, but I just can't help myself! I also tend to watch a lot of older shows on Netflix and Hulu.
