So, I’m looking for a penpal to exchange snailmail with. I’ve tried to contact other people but, sadly, I didn’t have much luck. I just want someone to send hand written letters to and -hopefully- develop a nice friendship.

Ever since I saw the movie Julie & Julia I wanted to try it out. I love the idea of being friends so intimately with someone you’ve never really met, it speaks of a true connection. At least I feel like it does.  

Basic facts about me: my name’s Julia. I’m 19 going on 20. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’m studying psychology though I just started my first term. Before that I studied cinematography for a year. My native language is Spanish, of course. I speak English quite fluently. I’m also supposed to know French cause I studied it for like eleven years but I’m not sure it really stuck. Not like English.  

Random facts about me: I would like to learn Russian or Japanese. I collect notebooks. I love to make up mix-tapes/playlists. I dream of living abroad for a year (max.) I like to think I will publish a book of my own creation, someday.

 What I look for in a penpal? Nothing specific. Perhaps that you are 18 or older cause it would feel rather awkward otherwise. I would enjoy talking with someone outside of my own country. We could start online and if we hit it off we could exchange addresses. I don’t care if you’re a boy or a girl or neither or both or which ever gender you identify with. Neither will I care about your sexual orientation. Don’t be afraid to talk to me about your opinions cause I am pretty open minded. 

(This turned out longer than I expected) I didn’t include my likes/dislikes and hobbies cause we can talk about those between us and I’m not very biased by them.

I’m really looking forward to this and I hope some of you will message me!
