I'm pretty open when it comes to books though, it's usually pretty easy to keep me entertained.

TV: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Game of Thrones, True Blood, and I've just recently got into Orange is the New Black. I have a weird love for game shows as well. (Although I don't watch them as often.)

What are you looking for in a pen pal? Someone who just likes to talk about how they're doing, the differences between the way we live our lives, or the differences between our culture.

Post a picture
This is a drawing from today in a letter to a pen pal.

I don't really like to talk about myself too much. I kinda like to keep my persona abstract.

I'm probably going to be really boring right away because my life is really not that interesting, and I generally don't have interesting things to say. Maybe if I get to know you really well, I'll come up with some stuff, but that could really take a while.

So I'd just like to take people for test runs, see if we're best buds material.

I like to keep it simple.

I have a format I use almost all of the time:

3.5x5.5", 12 pgs, will probably write 2 letters on those and send it off.
Inks are rotated throughout the month.

This is really a pen-pal specialized account, so go right ahead and look in this journal for more stuff.

I'd especially love it if you'd draw right back at me!
