Hey My name is Joanna, I am 24 years old and I live in Surrey in United Kingdom. I'm currently working with animals, which I adore. I love to share experiences and about life in general. It's easier for me to write to people, as I'm very shy!
Things I like are: baking, films, reading, photography, stationary, concerts, festivals, psychology, scrapbooking, cats, animals, disney, mythological creaters, tattoos, martial arts, mental health, serial killers, make-up, perfume, writing letters, iPhone games, fountain pens, owls

TV shows I am interested in: Buffy, Angel, Fringe, Continuum, Falling Skies, Game of Thrones, The Following, Banshee, The Blacklist, NCIS, My Mad Fat Diary, and Helix.
What I am looking for:
I am interested in writing to people from anywhere. It would be helpful if we had things in common. I try and put a lot of effort in writing long letters, so if you are the same - get in contact! Obviously first few letters may be short! I like to write at least 2-3 sides of A4. I also like swapping Mix CDs! Oh and I am willing to write the first letter!
Contact me: Either send me a message on LJ, comment here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org

What You Are Requesting: friendship!
How many penpals do you want? A few, but decent ones
Do you want emails? Not into e-mailing, sorry!
Do you want snail-mail? Sure!
Length of letters? The longer letter I receive from a penpal, the longer my letter is!
How quick are you to respond: within a month, usually less than that.
Male or Female? Doesn’t matter.
Age? 25-45 (I get along better with friends who’re older than me and right now my oldest friend is 48…)
From where? Europe, Japan, Australia would be nice!
What are you looking for with your pen pal? A real friend who’s interested in my life and who’s life I can be interested in as well, someone who regulary writes (this doesn’t mean that I expect a certain amount of letters per year of course, but it’d be nice to hear from you in every second months or so… Of course, life can happen anytime, which I definietly understand).

It seems I've lost about a third of my pen pals during this past year or so and because of that I am looking for a few new pen pals.
-Age: 28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)
-Location: Odense, Denmark
-Occupation: Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.
-Main interests: penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)
-What genres of music are you into? My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.
-Favorite books: I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living
-Favorite movies: The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.
-Describe your ideal penpal: My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)
-What age do you want them to be? I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)
-What sex do you want them to be? Either
-What country do you want them to be from? Anywhere, really. :)

I’m looking for: Penpals with whom I could write in French, German or Hungarian.
Either a native speaker or someone studying the language (and fluent enough to write letters) will do. I’m trying to find a way to practice these languages as well as get back into penpalling. I’m not primarily looking for penpals in English because I get lots of practice in that language already, but if someone who would write me in English really wants to be pals, drop me a note and we’ll see about that. I just don’t want too many penpals now so that I’ll be able to write to everyone. I’m not too fussy about the pen pal’s age - something like 20-35 years would be the rough guideline, but the most important thing is that we have something interesting to write about!About me:
Language skills: I speak and write fluent French and pretty good German, so in those languages I’d be able to have the whole correspondence in that language. In Hungarian my skills aren’t as good; I can write reasonably much, but if we want to write longer and more in-depth letters, some of it will probably have to be in English (or Finnish, if you happen to know that). I also speak English and Swedish, and my native language is Finnish. If someone wants to practice their Finnish with me, I’ll be happy to oblige!
Length and frequency of letters: I can’t say for sure, really, because I’m only getting back to penpalling. I always was a long-letter writer (usually at least 3-5 A 4 sheets, both sides), but in languages I’m not quite as good at as English or Finnish, it may be shorter. As for frequency, I’m going to try to write regularly, but I’m probably not going to be able to write back in a few days every time, so if you need that and will be upset about longer delays, don’t try to correspond with me. I want this to be fun for me, not stressful!My life and interests:
I’ve graduated from the university and am currently seeking work. What I really want to do is to be a novelist, though, even if I’m well aware of how difficult it’s to make your living that way. I’m currently working on a historical novel. I’m crazy about writing in general and also write a lot of stuff for fun that I will probably never even try to publish, and I like writing stuff like reviews, discussion forum posts and blogs.
I’m also crazy about: books, theatre - especially musical theatre -, history, language learning, travelling, tea, being outdoors and being with my friends. I’m totally obsessive about musicals - especially Central European musicals, and I’m really not your best source on Broadway or West End stuff because I’m mostly focused on the European scene. I spend much money I don’t have to see musicals in Central Europe, especially Budapest and occasionally Vienna. My favourite musicals include Tanz der Vampire, Mozart! and Elisabeth, and I like a bunch of others as well. When I’m not listening to musicals, it’s usually classical music of some sort. Other than that I mostly like older popular music, I don’t much follow today’s bands.
I don’t think I can squeeze my taste in books into a few words; some of my favourite fiction writers include L.M. Montgomery, Patricia A. McKillip, Shakespeare, Victor Hugo and Terry Pratchett, but there are also tons of others, and I also read a lot of nonfiction (especially history) and some poetry. I refer to my Goodreads account
for those who (rightly) believe you can tell a lot about a person from their taste in books.
What else? I love hand fans, satin and lace gloves and pretty dresses, though most of the time I dress in a pretty ordinary way. I keep a paper journal and I miss having personal letters or postcards regularly fall into my mailbox. I have colourful feather boas decorating my bookshelf because I like them and can’t figure out where to wear them. I prefer cafés to night clubs and picnics to parties. I hate politics and don’t like discussing it with people who are very passionately for some ideology or party. I wish I could keep a pet, but I move around so much it would be impossible.
If you’re interested, drop me a comment or PM with your e-mail address, or write to me at ladyvalancy AT gmail DOT com.
