Snail Mail

Believe me when I say I enjoy living in the digital world. I do. I love that I can send someone a message via the internet, but that doesn’t mean I do not enjoy sending/receiving normal cards and letters.

I joined a few pen pal groups, hopefully these work out. The last time I joined a pen pal swap none of my assigned pals ever replied to my letters. I didn’t want my letters to make them feel obligated but I guess it was too much for them to keep up with. I mean I know sending things via mail can be hard to keep up with. I used to swap a notebook back and forth with my best friend but I haven’t sent it back to her in awhile. Now that I think of it it was sort of like a SMASH* book. We would write, doodle and smash stuff in it.  I’m planning on sending her more letters, I miss her.  Oh some exciting news, so there was this blog hop, with amazing prizes, and I won one of them. I will have my very own Amy TangerineThe Little Things Day Book. I’m just so excited, I’ve never won anything before. So again a thank you to Kellie for hosting such an awesome blog hop. I love her blog.  Continuing on with mail, my swapbot deadline is coming up next week and I finally finished gathering my 5 items to send to my partner. Each item has to be something she can use when smashing so I’m hoping she likes the items I’ve chosen for her. The other is a card I made for a SMASH*aholics pen pal. I had a lot of fun making it. I got to use my new typewriter stamp. I love it!  I really love stamps and on my last visit to Hobby Lobby they had a bunch of new stamps. I’m hoping to send these out sometime this week. Speaking of this week it’s my last week off. Classes start next Monday, and I’m not exactly looking forward to getting back on schedule. -.- I’m already having problems with this semester and financial aid which I hope to clear up in the morning. Also Friday is the dreaded road test!!! I’m still as terrified as ever. I really wish I could have practiced parallel parking some more. Blasted  parallel parking! I’m trying to be calm about the whole thing, I mean I’ve talked about getting my license and always blamed my parents for not getting it sooner. I just have bad test anxiety and the fear of failing doesn’t help. The other day my 16 year old cousin got her license so that should motivate me to do my best on Friday. I can do this! I know I can, I’ve been driving for awhile now and I should hurry up and just make it legal now.  No more excuses.

Today’s song is Polaroid by Skyler Stonestreet

I love this song, I’ve been obsessed with taking pictures with my instax and then I found this song and I can’t stop listening to it. It features the newest Fuji digital Polaroid camera in the video. 

So have you’ve you ever had a pen pal before? If so, how long did you trade back letters? Do you prefer the convenience of email or text messaging? Let me know. :3

Look forward to a new haul video sometime this week. Thanks for reading. :3

    How awesome!
    Sounds like fun doing the pen pal group! I love actually writing instead of typing. There’s something about the pen and paper that makes it seem so much better!
    Loved reading your blog! 🙂

    @Stephanie Boyd, I love writing! I just wish my handwriting was nicer. I mean I love the fact that everyone’s handwriting is different. Like fingerprints. I’m hoping this pen pal group thing works out.
    Thanks so much for reading and commenting. 😀

    Cute stamps!! 🙂

    I really love snail mail! Unfortunately, no one else I know likes to send snail mail anymore. I never get any replies to my letters 🙁

    Good luck on your road test! I’m sure you’ll do great. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

    @Kristen, Thanks so much!!! I can use all the good vibes I can get.

    And if you’re interested, I can always be your pen pal. There would be no obligation because we read each others blog so if life gets too busy we can always just send a comment to explain the lack of mail.

    I mean no pressure here. Just a friendly suggestion. :3 Thanks for always reading and commenting.

    @kim, That’s a great idea! I will be moving soon, so after that happens I will give you my new snail mail address and we can start being pen pals! Love it! 🙂

    Disclaimer: I am not nearly as crafty as you. I don’t have cute stamps and mad skills in the artsy department like you do. But I will do my best to keep up! 😀

    @Kristen, XD Awesome! Can’t wait.
    And no worries there isn’t a crafty requirement. 🙂
    Yay I’m excited! XD

    @Tami Rebekah, I’m only on page 79 and I’m liking it a lot so far. I’ve heard a bunch of good things about this book but never knew it shared different perspectives. Junot Diaz is actually making an appearance in Houston in September so hopefully I will be able to attend and get his autograph. I want to finish the book before then.
    Thanks for reading and commenting. 😀
