Age: 35 (36 in October)
Location: Rochester, NY
Email: fawndolyn at gmail dot com
How do you identify(sexuality/gender)?: There are so many labels these days... If I want to be really specific, I'll say Cis-Female, Pan-romantic, Asexual (but to keep away from confusing people and having to explain everything, I just tell people I'm bisexual).
Occupation: Student tech support at a community college, web designer for artists, entrepreneur (steampunk baubles), and occasionally: SFX artist, DP, and extra.
Language: English, and some French (with an interest in learning German, Russian, and Japanese).
Religious views: Non-religious, not spiritual.
Else? I have a menagerie of depressive disorders, which are attributed to an estrogen dominance, and I'm medicated to keep it under control. Also, I am a fatty-boom-batty trying to get healthy, but struggle with willpower & motivation.
LJ Friends? Always open :)
What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, emails, whatever...
Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: You. From anywhere. Anyone cool, or even lame. No jerks. No trolls. Someone with similar interests. And if you're significantly younger than me, that's fine, but I hope your folks don't mind either.
What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! International packages are great, but I have a hard time reciprocating due to the hike in postage, so best just stick to letters.
Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): Poop, bombs, and severed limbs (unless said limbs are properly sealed in a glass jar), non-personal letters (I'd like to know you actually read the letters I send - that has been an issue in the past), and letters that are addressed to me but written to someone else (that has happened too).
What would be in your dream letter or package?: $200,000. Covers my student debt, full tuition for my next school, living expenses while at school, and a car to get me there. The pen-pal who sends me that will get SO MUCH love, and I'll send them awesome props from movies I'll work in, and practice stuff, and I'll even fly them down to give them a movie-monster makeover (and they can keep the prosthetics I make), if that's their thing. OMG that would be the best! Haha, sorry for gushing.
How many penpals do you have?: about 2 right now.
How many pen pals do you want?: As many as actually want to write with me.
How long are your letters?: I start off moderate-to-long, but then keep it loose (long or short) from there - but it also depends on your letters, too, if you give me a tweet-sized letter, that's not too much for me to reply to, but I still have my own life to talk about ;)
Do you hand-write or type?: I usually hand-write, but I do, on occasion, fall to a hand injury, or get cramped, and typing is easier during that time. Also, if we're email pals, I'm gonna type ;)
What age would you like your pen pal to be?: Like I said earlier, as long as you're cool with me being over 30, and your parents don't harp on me (they can spy if they feel so inclined, but I get defensive when I'm grilled), then I guess your age doesn't matter.
Would you like them to be male or female?: Doesn't matter. I've only ever had 2 male pen-pals.
