USA, any area.

Is it too late to sign up for a Penpal? I've been ill lately and was trying to decide if I was well enough to do this. Today I decided that it would probably be good for me, and I can manage it as I'm feeling much better. My name is Debbie Handley and I'll fill out the questionnaire tonight, once I hear if there's still time to add me to the list. Thanks in advance.

Name: Andrea
PeaName: aj*smile
Pen Pal #: 144

1 . What is your first name?
Andrea

2. Do you have children? If so please list names if you choose and ages
None!

3. Are there any major events that have happened in your life that have made you who you are?
My father died when I was 27. They don't write books for that group. Children's books exist, as do those for people who are "grown ups" caring for aging parents. But what do you do when you're in your 20's, everyone wants to drag you out to a party to "get your mind off it," and very few people your age have been through such trauma? He won't be at my wedding, won't know my husband and future children or vice versa. I deal with it every day.

4. Do you scrapbook?
Technically! I prefer to make note cards and just jazz up photo albums a bit. I don't actually make pages. I do, however, have most of the same tools. I really like embossing and painting with watercolors.

5. Do you have any other hobbies?
Photography, baking, travel, tennis, and a bit of golf. I also love watching college football -- especially Ohio State and West Virginia.

6. What are some other areas of interest, be particular
Politics and religion -- specifically the history of religion and comparing different world views. I like to think I have an open mind and like learning what makes people tick, why they've made the choices they've made, etc.

7. What is your favorite color and color combination?
Changes all the time! I always like jewel tones: ruby red, purple, midnight blue, etc.

8. Are you religious?
I'm deeply spiritual. I believe in God and believe Jesus Christ lived among men and died for our sins. However, I do not subscribe to a specific denomination, and I do not attend church regularly. I like studying world religions and learning about the best points of them all. I actually feel a special affinity for Native American spirituality and have started learning more about it. I've also studied Old Orders (Amish, German Baptist) and did college coursework on Mary Magdalene and how she's been portrayed in society.

9. Do you mind having an overseas penpal, due to postage?
No! I'd really like an overseas penpal if possible .

10. Do you collect anything?
Beyond photos -- not particularly.

11. What do you do for a living?
I own my own little stationery studio and am a semi-pro photographer. However, I'm actively pursuing a new job. My background is in event management -- specifically within pro sports.

12. Do you like to read? If so name three of your favorite authors?
Yes! I just rarely have time these days. I like non-fiction, travel memoirs, biographies, etc. Anthony Bourdain is a favorite. Fiction-wise, I like Eudora Welty, Richard Russo, and a historic novelist named Elizabeth Chadwick.

13. Favorite food/candy/snack:
Ice cream! My favorite "real food" is Mediterranean -- baked feta, hummus, dolmades, etc.

14. Favorite drink:
Blue Moon right now . . . or a good, cold iced tea in the summer / hot chai in the winter.

15. Are you allergic to anything?
Nope!

16. What do you NOT like?
Hardcore evangelical Christians, ultra-right wing Republicans, and brussels sprouts. (I'm honest.) Basically, if my pen pal likes Sarah Palin, we're going to have a rough go of it!

17. Name at least three things you are interested in.
Travel + learning to be a better artist (photography, watercolors) + current events.

18. Anything else you would like your partner to know about you?
Despite my answer to #16, I'm really a very easy going person. I would really like a pen pal who is also single and going through the ups and downs of dating! It's hard to find kindred spirits in my hometown, as all my friends are married with kids. I'd like to be able to toss ideas back and forth, joke about dates gone wrong, etc.

19. Dreams or wishes.
Good health.

20. Would you like a pal from a certain region?
Not particularly, although, as I mentioned, having a pen pal from abroad would be fun! I've lived in Florida, California, and Ohio and so would also have something in common with those from the East Coast, West Coast, and Midwest. Alaska's intriguing (ha).

21. Age, and would you like a partner in a certain age range?
I'm 32, everyone thinks I look 25, and I sometimes act 80. So, no, age is not so important.

22. Birthday- Month and Day
September 12

23.Pet Peeves
See #16

24.Does offensive lanuage bother you?
Nope.

25.Any topics off limits to you?
Nope

26. Are you a more liberal or conservative thinker and would you prefer a like minded partner or does it matter
I call myself independent, but I probably lean a little liberal. I'm open to all viewpoints, but would prefer not to be paired with a pen pal who is hard-line conservative/libertarian.

27. Pet peeves
That was #23

28.Anything that you wouldn't look for in a penpal?
Nope

29.Anything that you would look for in a pen pal ?
I adore paper. I like finding cool stamps, looking for fun stationery, and doctoring up my letters. So, someone who also likes to get into the "art" of letter writing would be cool!

30.Brief description or anything else you would like to tell your partner.
Just that this is a very sweet opportunity. I'm glad we're doing it and look forward to getting to know a new friend!

1 . What is your first name? Tania

2. Do you have children? No, none of my own. I do have lots of children in my life; 11 yr old cousin I adore, plus numerous friends kids. Love kids and always happy to hear about them.

3. Are there any major events that have happened in your life that have made you who you are? I have a disability - in a wheelchair. It wasn't due to poor health or anything life threating in most cases (a few exceptions we won't go in to now); I just tended to have legs that broke alot. I spent a good amount of my early life in hospital. Between that and being an 'only' for 12 yrs., I have always been kinda 'old' for my age.

4. Do you scrapbook? Yes, lots love it.

5. Do you have any other hobbies? card making, reading, karaoke

6. What are some other areas of interest, be particular: I love politics, religion/spirituality, ethics, hockey, Grey's, HGTV, Food Network, American Idol, movies. I like other sports, too, but more around playoff time, and when there is a good 'issue'/'story' to debate - i.e. steroid use in baseball, the Farve saga, etc. I don't like drama in my own life but it's fun to read about.

7. What is your favorite color and color combination? green,with purple, and blue, with orange.

8. Are you religious? Spiritual. I attend a Christian church. I don't agree with them on everything by a long shot (pro choice and pro same sex marriage rights)

9. Do you mind having an overseas penpal, due to postage?Prefer North America

10. Do you collect anything? bookmarks, fun (like, with designs and stuff on 'em, not just the plain boring orangish colour of standard ones) pencils, santas and snowmen

11. What do you do for a living? I am an unemployed chid and youth care worker (hence cycworker) who does a great deal of volunteering

12. Do you like to read? If so name three of your favorite authors? Love it... Sophie Kinsella, Margaret Atwood, Ann Tyler. But I am more about the type of book than the author. I don't like mysteries or thrillers/espionage, etc... No Jonathan Kellerman, Dean Koontz etc., for me. Tend to switch back and forth between a more 'serious' book and a lighter one. And I also like non fiction - esp on political issues or child and youth care related issues. But really, if it's not a mystery and it's not violent, I'll give it a try.

13. Favorite food/candy/snack: food:depends on my mood.... homemade burger and fries, homemade spaghetti my mom makes, and her lasagne come to mind. I don't do well with onions, mushrooms, peppers,or chunks of tomato so I like to make my own sauce. Generally I am a plain eater, meat and potatoes, limited fruit and veggie repetoire. I get enough, but there are only a few I like -strawberries, raspberries, apples, oranges, carrots, broccoli, corn. Candyther than soft caramels, I don't like candy - I like CHOCOLATE. MILK chocolate. Kit Kat, Aero, Coffee Crisp, PLAIN Hershey bars, anything with no nuts, fruit or raisins will make me happy. Love pb M&Ms, plain M&Ms, Hershey kisses, that kind of stuff. Snack: Ice cream.

14. Favorite drink: Non alcoholic: Coke or Pepsi. Alcoholic: Rum and Coke, Kahlua and milk, a mudslide or a paralyzer

15. Are you allergic to anything? latex and some meds for sure. Possibly bananas now, too. It's correlated to the latex issue. Haven't been allowed to have them since July and I am missing them terribly.

16. What do you NOT like? rap music, onion flavored anything, ketchup chips, pickles, most vegetables, lavender scent, nuts, violence, gross out/potty humor, loud noises and crowds, esp. being around alot of drunk and disorderly types. I would not be one for New Year's Eve at Times' Square or Mardi Gras.

17. Name at least three things you are interested in. Children/education, scrapbooking and cardmaking/stamping, photography, hockey, faith, pop culture, politics, travel

18. Anything else you would like your partner to know about you? That I can be serious but I have a fun side. That I can be scatterbrained but respond well to gentle nudging. What I lack in frequency of communication I will make up for in length of letters. I like to write long letters.

19. Dreams or wishes.

1) To be a godmother, but I think I best not hold my breath on that one. Failing that, I hope to have close relationships with future neieces and nephews if I am blessed with them, as well as with the child my cousin is now pregnant with.

2)To serve God by serving others, and if possible earn a bit of $$ at it, but not so much it messes up my living situation (I am in a rent geared to income scenario where if I make over X amt they will evict me, and accessible housing is near impossible to find. I don't want to lose this place).

3)To be a good role model to others, esp. those younger than me, and leave this world a little better than when I came into it.

4)To travel. There are many places I want to see, both in North America and in Europe. I prefer cruising; it's easiest with the chair. But I have to see Mt. Rushmore at some point, which won't involve a cruise.

20. Would you like a pal from a certain region? No

21. Age, and would you like a partner in a certain age range? I'm 38 - almost 39. It would be nice to have someone age 25-50.

22. Birthday- Month and Day October 28

23.Pet Peeves Rude people, people who are good at complaining and not so good at contributing, people who treat childen poorly, the word 'kid' - a kid is a baby goat. If you refer to your child as a baby goat, they are far more apt to behave like one. I'm a huge believer in the Pygmalion effect - people will live up or down to what we expect of them.

24.Does offensive lanuage bother you? No

25.Any topics off limits to you? No

26. Are you a more liberal or conservative thinker and would you prefer a like minded partner or does it matter: Liberal leaning (centre left, actuallybut sometimes I pull left in response to more extreme conservative views), I am open to people who are of a different political persuasion.

27. Pet peeves

28.Anything that you wouldn't look for in a penpal? I don't really want a person to try to convert me to their way of thinking. Open discussion, sure. But nothing pushy.

29.Anything that you would look for in a pen pal?Share thoughts, ideas, get to know each other, maybe develop a friendship and meet one day.

30.Brief description or anything else you would like to tell your partner. I am a pretty curious person with range of interests.

Oh I should tell you this up front:

I'm convinced God is a hockey fan.

I have Fibromyalgia and other chronic health problems. Recently, I've had to quit work. That's been hard as I've worked most all my life. Trying to find happiness and fulfillment in different ways now.

4. Do you scrapbook? I try to, haven't been able to lately due to health problems.

5. Do you have any other hobbies? I love photography, counted cross-stitch, sewing, and general crafts. I love to watch movies if the Fibro Fog isn't too bad. If it is it makes it hard to keep track of the plot, characters...etc.

6. What are some other areas of interest, be particular.
I enjoy decorating the inside of my home for various holidays. I like to read when my health allows. I like to use the internet to read about organizing ideas to make life easier and more simple. I collect lots of things see #10 below.

7. What is your favorite color and color combination? My favorite color is blue. Color combinations...depends on what it's for...for scrapbooking...I like brown/blue, black with pops of purple, or pink, also love earthtones. For my home I like having theme type rooms, such as black & white cows for my kitchen. I also love Americana items for my home. Use a lot of blue and burgundy in my home.

8. Are you religious? Yes, I believe my faith has helped make me the person I am today. Through all of life's problems and disappointments I've had my faith to fall back on. I am a convert to the LDS faith.

9. Do you mind having an overseas penpal, due to postage? Would prefer someone in the USA if possible.

10. Do you collect anything? Yes, lots of things! Keychains, black & white cows for my kitchen. Panda bears are another favorite. I also collect Pepsi items.

18. Anything else you would like your partner to know about you? I’m really excited to get a penpal!!

22. Birthday- Month and Day June 18th

23.Pet Peeves: Waiting in line at the store, automatic dialers that call your house almost daily trying to sell something or give you a mortgage (we rent!), having to press a # for English. I think everything should be in English, others can press whatever # for Spanish...etc.

24.Does offensive lanuage bother you? It can. I believe there are better words to use. That's not to say that I don't and haven't used some myself. I am trying to be more conscious of the words I use. I really get tired of all the F-bombing that goes on. I just wasn't raised that way, and don't want people talking that way around me.

25.Any topics off limits to you? Possibly religion, if my partner doesn't like LDS people & our beliefs. Also I am not in to politics!! So probably not much discussion of them.

26. Are you a more liberal or conservative thinker and would you prefer a like minded partner or does it matter
I think I am probably in the middle. I don't agree with either side on everything. A lot of "hot" issues I might prefer to not discuss if it's something we don't agree on. I believe we are all entitled to our own thoughts and feelings. I will respect yours, and ask that you respect mine.

27. Pet peeves See #23 above

28.Anything that you wouldn't look for in a penpal? Would just prefer someone that is at a similar stage in life...kids almost grown or a soon to be an empty-nester, (2 of our children may continue to live with us while completing college). We are just preparing to move on to a new phase in our lives. Someone who isn't all about materialistic things. Looking to relocate to Arizona next year, so someone near that part of the United States would be great!!

29.Anything that you would look for in a pen pal ? Someone that is honest, and wants to have contact by mail and email (if they choose).

30.Brief description or anything else you would like to tell your partner.
I am 46 years old. I feel that I have learned a lot of life lessons and am looking forward to getting to know someone. I suffer from chronic illnesses, so some days all I can do is just lay in bed. Sometimes I sleep most of the day and night. Other times, I'm able to do a bit more. Looking for someone to share friendship and correspondence with. I hope that we can both make life a little better for each other with kind words, encouragement and friendship.

3. Are there any major events that have happened in your life that have made you who you are? Well, I guess it's kind of a combination of lots of things; being a military brat and traveling the world as well as being a teacher are ones that have made a big impact on my life and helped make me who I am but there have been lots of other influences.

6. What are some other areas of interest, be particular. Currently, I'm very interested in adoption as that is one option that we are considering. In general though I love paranormal things, candle/soapmaking and am an environmental and animal rights supporter. I LOVE reading/learning about urban legends and secret societies as well as conspiracy theories. Not that I subscribe to them all, I'm just very interested in how they came about and the history surrounding them. I also do a lot of reading about frugality, and simple/natural/organic living.

7. What is your favorite color and color combination? Pink is my favorite color and I also love brown, navy and sage green.

8. Are you religious? I am, but I'm very new to my faith. I was saved in December and am very excited to live my life in Christ.

9. Do you mind having an overseas penpal, due to postage? Not at all!

10. Do you collect anything? LOL! I think I've kind of covered that in several other questions, but I can add to those! I also collect Yankee or Old Virginia candles, ladybug things, and handmade soaps as well as Bath and Body Works products (especially Eucalyptus Spearmint). Oh...and things with cupcakes on them...and cute socks...love cute socks!

12. Do you like to read? If so name three of your favorite authors? Oh yes!!! It is one of my favorite things to do! I can't necessarily choose three favorite authors, but my favorite kinds of books are twisty, mystery types as well as paranormal. I love Stephen King, Jodi Piccoult, Jennifer Weiner, James Patterson and Dean Koontz.

13. Favorite food/candy/snack: Well, I am a snacker and I love sweets. Some favorites include salty/sweet treats and tortilla chips with queso dip. Ice cream, especially Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby or mint chocolate chip. I also love baked goodies and cheesecake or peanut butter and chocolate combinations. Sushi...yummy!!!

14. Favorite drink: McDonald's Iced Coffee-Hazelnut please, with extra syrup! I drink mostly water though and love the taste of it! When I really indulge I like to try new things at Starbucks. When I drink soda it's usually a Mountain Dew or Root Beer.

15. Are you allergic to anything? Penicillin

16. What do you NOT like? Ummm...mean, rude or racist people. And Monday mornings...

17. Name at least three things you are interested in. LOL! I think I've pretty much covered most of this.

18. Anything else you would like your partner to know about you? Perhaps that I'm going through infertility, I have PCOS and am trying to lose weight right now. These are areas that are really focuses in my life at the moment as well as trying to live a more simple life.

19. Dreams or wishes. To have a baby; that is the main one. To live closer to our family, especially in an area that would provide more cultural variety.

20. Would you like a pal from a certain region? Not in particular, but in the Northeast would be ok since that where I am but it doesn't really matter.

21. Age, and would you like a partner in a certain age range? I just turned 33 and I would like a pal close to my age but I wouldn't mind either way.

22. Birthday- Month and Day: 8/26/1976

23.Pet Peeves: People who talk during movies, pens without a cap and other silly things like that...and poor grammar.

24.Does offensive lanuage bother you? Nope, not really.

25.Any topics off limits to you? No...none that I can think of.

26. Are you a more liberal or conservative thinker and would you prefer a like minded partner or does it matter. I'm VERY liberal and would prefer someone like minded I think. I don't mind discussing or debating, but I don't want to worry about upsetting my pal.

27. Pet peeves: Please see above.

28.Anything that you wouldn't look for in a penpal? Ummm...nothing really comes to mind.

29.Anything that you would look for in a pen pal? Perhaps someone who has similar interests. That might make it a little easier, but I really enjoy meeting and getting to know lots of different types of people! Oh, and I can be both silly AND sentimental, so maybe somebody who is a little of both as well. Also, I would like someone who will write on a fairly regular basis.

30.Brief description or anything else you would like to tell your partner. Just that I'm really excited to have a penpal and to hopefully make a new friend!!!
