I love seeing new places and doing things randomly, one day I hope to travel to France..this is a huge dream for me. I use to pen pal but due to work and my mother's illnesses I stopped doing so much pen palling and crafting. I am slowly starting to get back into both.

Long letters? It doesn't matter to me as long as you are passionate with your writing..I do love long letters but I know there are times friends are only able to drop a few lines to their pen pals to let them know what is going on. :)

:D [18 Sep 2009|05:35pm]

Lets see here, I figured I should probably write a good bio this time instead of the usual where i live, age, hobbies, ect.

My name is Kendra, and I'm young, but old at heart. I'm 18 years old, but have been through more than most teenagers. I have my issues, but I also have some great qualities. I have a difficult time making friends in real life due to some social anxiety, and  what not. I'm also bipolar, but I promise I wont pull a crazy on you! As far as what I enjoy doing...I love to write! its probably the one thing that I do especially well, and it also shows in my letters. I listen to a variety of music depending on my mood, and I also enjoy reading! I'd love to travel someday(I've been to a few countries in Europe, but thats it.) but I'm not all that sure when. I have a love of cute stationary, but I also enjoy decorating my own paper or writing on notebook paper(not the frilly kind!) because I enjoy the simplicity of it all.

Did I mention I'm creative? I'm collaging one of my walls at the moment with postcards and funky stuff. One of my favorites so far is a sushi shaped air freshener hanging from my bulletin board!

As far as my penpalling goes, Im looking for people who will actually stick around! I want a lasting friendship and I would prefer long-ish letters if possible. I for sure will stay around as your friend, so no worries there. Anyways, I really hope I've interested someone in commenting on my ad/profile thing! if you'd like, I can also send you a link to my blog and you can check that out as well!

Overall, I'm a creative, somewhat hippy-ish, quirky girl looking for a few new friends by mail!

Email is: popglitz@live.com or just comment please. :D
