First off, I am very excited that there is a topic like this on craftster, because it seems like I would have nothing in common with the people on all those penpal sites. I don't think I've ever had a steady pen pal since grade school, which is a shame. I have some great stationary I need to use, and I'm trying to teach myself calligraphy.
Okay. I'm 24 and currently on break from school at ASU, working at getting a degree in Special Education (yes, I plan on teaching!). I have a cool husband who likes all the same music, movies, and comics as me and enjoys collecting toys and creating custom action figures. I am often enlisted in seaching countless Walmarts and Toys R Us's to find a particular figure, but I've grown to love toys almost as much as he (Marvel Legends, Star Wars, Simpsons, stuff like that).
We have a great little 2-year-old girl who never has enough space in our apartment to run around in. I've seen Finding Nemo about a million times because of her.
I love crafty stuff (stating the obvious, sorry). I attend local S 'n B meetings when I can, crochet, and learning to sew from my aunt-in-law. I love to cook and have a goal to try a new recipe a week. Setting goals is fun now thanks to http://www.43things.com.
I live in Phoenix, AZ and have been here my entire life. ugh.
Here's some shows and movies I like: Trailer Park Boys, The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Da Ali G Show, Pete and Pete, Mr. Show, The Awful Truth, Punch Drunk Love, The Big Lebowski, lots others.
As far as music goes, I'll just name a few bands I've been listening to a lot lately : Mountain Goats, Junior Boys, Manitoba/Caribou, new Ben Folds and Decemberists.
Reading is a wonderful escape for me, and lately it's been more graphic novels than books. I just finished one called Persepolis, an autobiographical story about a girl growing up in late 70s revolutionary Iran. Good read!
Hopefully this will give everyone a good idea!
