Looking for Pen-Pals!

"This is me on the left!"

Hey there, Tumblr world. My name is Leanna, I’m a few weeks away from my 18th birthday, and I’m from Ohio in the USA.

A little bit about then:

1) I love reading. I’m always reading something. I stay up way late doing it too.

2) I love watching movies, any genre. I particularly love action movies though. And indie films. I love the Lord of the Rings movies and Star Wars. I also love musicals too!

3) I’m also really into music. I mean, I’m not the person who knows all these obscure bands (I do know a few random ones), but I’ll basically listen to anything from Charli XCX to The 1975 to Paper Route to Green Day to Snow Patrol to the Beatles and the Stones. You get the idea.

4) I love traveling. I was lucky enough to be able to go to N. Ireland this summer, and I had a marvelous time there. I would love to go back someday.

Dislikes: broccoli, teachers that talk after class should’ve ended, and … people who bash others for believing something different than they do.

I’m looking for, primarily, a snail-mail pen-pal, but e-mail works too. I wouldn’t mind Skyping, but because of my busy school schedule, I don’t have as much time for Skyping! So, sorry Skypers.

Age doesn’t really bother me although I would prefer 16/17+. Gender doesn’t matter either. Male, female, unicorn, I’m not picky. :)

Well, if you want you can contact me at:

lepefr.tumblr.com in my ask box


leanna.p.french @ gmail . com (Original e-mail, huh? :] )

If not, have a wonderful day!

Be my friend?

Likes: reading, drawing, music, spirtuality, camping, exploring, concerts, sleeping, eating, talking, tattoos, piercings.

Anonymous said: I know it might not be the place of this site, but I've seen a white person with the n word in their URL and post, and a woman who said she hated 'shitty noun-self' people in the ads, and I think you should do a better job of censoring stuff like this that's like hate speech or slurs? Like, a lot of diverse people follow you, and this should strive to be a safe place for everyone

Hello anon,

I try my best to censor things. This has been happening more recently the use of profanity on my site. And I do not like it. Its in the rules, when you submit you have to agree to the guidelines and rules of the site.

I try by putting asterisks but URLs are hard because I need a way for people to contact people.

I wish everyone was accepting but I can’t tell people what to say all I can do is either censor the curse words or take them out.

I try my best guys and girls, I’m doing this for free and I have to edit posts, make sure pics work, make sure links work, make sure tags work. I contact people when they missed their name or age or location. I don’t rant people but it’s been happening more frequently and I’m trying to do my best for you.

I’ll keep trying but you got to work with me too.

Name: Mia

Age: 28

Location: Florida, USA

A bit about me: I’m married and a mom.  I’m introverted in that I need alone time to recharge my batteries.  I love laughing and making people laugh when I can.  I have a craft room covered in art and posters that inspire me and make me smile, and I’m a bit worried because I’m starting to run out of wall space. I can’t draw to save my life, and I don’t have the world’s cutest stationary, but I do write three and four page letters.

Likes and interests: baking, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Disney, Avengers, Harry Potter, reading, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, writing, board games

Dislikes: horror/suspense (I get scared way too easily), dill, being tickled, and ants.

What I’m looking for: snail mail from anyone from anywhere! I just think it’s fascinating to exchange letters with people around the world, or even close to home. I’m hoping to find someone who I can continue writing to for the long-term and develop a friendship with. Large gifts are out of my budget, but we could exchange small (flat) things like photos, postcards, or bookmarks.

Contact: drop me an email at chocolatlmia @ gmail. com. 
I look forward to hearing from you!

Random Fact: I got a Harry Potter-themed tattoo on July 31st, 2011.

  • Amélie, 19 y-o, North of France
  • I’m studying to become an English Literature Teacher in high school or university. Teacher is not my dream job (writer is) but I like academia so I guess I’m gonna make this work out. I wrote a few stories in French I’m quite ashamed of. Former fanfic writer. Occasionnal poet.

  • I like running, hiking and I exercise a lot.
  • Quite funny in a sarcastic way.
  • I remade a (semi-empty) Tumblr recently.

  • Interests: SAD BOOKS, SAD MANGAS AND SAD TV SHOWS MOSTLY. (but I’m super funny I swear)

TV Shows: True Detective, The Leftovers, American Horror Story, Bates Motel, Happy Valley, Broadchurch, Sherlock. I’m waiting impatiently for The Knick to begin.

Mangas: I don’t read them that much now (my shonen days are totally over) but I still enjoy anything by Yoneda Kou, Setona Mizushiro, Kaori Yuki and Moto Hagio. I don’t hate slash and BL if it’s not terrible -I’ve become extremely critical of anything vaguely erotic these times. I still think dearly of a few shonens I grew up with such as Gintama, Stone Ocean (an arc of Jojo Bizarre’s Adventures) and Kateikyo Hitman Reborn.

Books: Anything by Joyce Carol Oates and Flannery O’Connor, really. Anything by the Brontë family too. I like Angela Carter too and Margaret Atwood, and Sylvia Plath and Dickinson and loads of French stuff (Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Victor Hugo, Mérimée). I’m very into Japanese literature too (Mishima, Sôseki, Tanizaki, Kawabata). I’m quite knowlegeable when it comes to books generally speaking and like very different kinds of them. /!\ I TOTALLY STOPPED READING YA FICTION I’M SORRY.

Art: Egon Schiele, Van Gogh, Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Klimt, Takehiko Inoue.

I have sh***y tastes in music because I’m a former emo wannabe. Pardon me if I remain silent about it.

Political views I’m 100% certain of: anti-porn, anti-prostitution, anti-bdsm, feminist, pro-choice, anti-sionist.

Dislikes: Disney, Marvel (really. I tried. I opened books. But it seems I really can not get into it), “”empowering lipstick”” mainstream feminism, Lord Of the Rings. I do not hate Dreamworks, I simply do not care.

  • Your perfect pen pal: Preferably not male but well, why not? Age between 15 and 28. No sh***y nounself pronouns. I’d like an art person and somebody from an English or German-speaking country but I’d be happy with anyone with good writing skills. Expect a lot of little drawings, bookmarks and doodles in each envelope!
  • Contact: journalpublic.tumblr.com
    Send me an ask to get my e-mail adress, or send me yours!

fun fact: My fish is called Fish.

Howdy doodles! My name is Alysa and I wanna be your pal!

I’m 25 and live in Milwauke, Wisconsin (USA). I’m actually a third generation Milwaukeean, so I know the city quite well and love it very much. 

I have two beloved cats, Charlie and Nugget, who (if you decide to be my pen pal) will probably be mentioned in every single letter. 
I work at a science museum, and enjoy that quite a bit. Science is awesome!
I love indie-folk and americana-pop music. Think The Decemberists, Regina Spektor, Sarah Jarosz, The Civil Wars, and Iron & Wine.
I’m also MAJORLY into thrift shopping/antiquing. I’m out at thrift stores or antique malls on at least a weekly basis. It’s really a good thing, because I’m also hugely feminine and love adding to my wardrobe, so paying $4 for a dress rather than $40 is a lot easier on the ol’ checkbook.
I am, to quote my father, a ravenous reader. I go through a few books a month, and am always looking for new book recommendations. I’m currently reading Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson, and before that, I finished Eating the Cheshire Cat by Helen Ellis. What are you reading?
During the warmer months I love cycling and walking, although I won’t pretend to be athletic. I’m 25 going on 5 at heart, so everything pink, glittery, and girly is right up my alley. 

I’m interested in snail mail, email, and tumblr chatting. Whatever works for us! If you were my penpal, you could expect: to learn about me and my life, random cards (I LOVE cards!), stickers, etc. 

If you’re interested, message me on tumblr - allhailthemightyglowcat.tumblr.com (changing on september 01st to catladyforlife.tumblr.com)

Hello friends!

I’m Shonda from sunny Florida here in the USA.

I enjoy dancing to music at 2am, reading (anything from fiction to historical fiction to fanfiction really), writing a bit, pretty pictures of pretty places, brownie mix, learning about different cultures and religions, and talking/ discussing just about anything with people especially when we have different opinions and can talk about your differences.

I don’t enjoy veggies, stray dogs (honestly terrified for some reason), people who think their opinion is the only right opinion, any violence that is based on race/ religion/ gender, and many other things I can’t seem to think of right now.

I’m 15 years old, I honestly don’t care about gender but I’d like anyone under the age of 18. Anyone outside of the states is greatly welcomed (maybe a place with great culture?) but everyone is welcomed.

I will probably be a bit shy at first. It will take some time for me to warm up, but I’ll get there eventually. I’m looking for an email buddy and maybe snail mail, it depends, but I hate video chatting (it makes me very uncomfortable). I’m taking online school as of right now so I should be quick at my letters!! (I do procrastinate a lot though).

silly little facts about me: I really really would like to move to Cali, I like everyone (I don’t like using the word “bisexual” as a name for myself, I just think everyone is really pretty and deserves to be loved), I’m strong minded but I won’t force my opinions on you and I actually really like hearing others opinions as long as they are not ignorant about it, finding new music is like a religion to me (send me new music to listen to and I’ll love you forever).

please contact me through my tumblr (http://shadesofmediocre.tumblr.com/
to ask for my email (you can also ask for my kik).

Stay safe, friends!
