theplaceforpenpals:

Hi there! My nearest and dearest call me mav. It is in fact a nickname, but I adore it. I am 23 and I live in Virginia in the US. I am a cis queer woman who has a lot of hobbies! 

I am an undergrad (that graduates in May!!!) that is throwing her life away to academia and accidentally falling in love with it along the way. I study sociology and art history and love every second of it. Social consciousness is very important to me as well as self-reflexivity. My letters tend to be long and sometimes all over the place because I like to think and talk about a variety of things (I’m not a serious as I sound I swear).

I like: music, movies, art, cheeseburgers, intellectual stimulation, the sound of laughter, being awful at mario kart, game of thrones, the way most sunsets look, photography, poetry, feminism and well, a lot of other stuff. Oh! And getting tattooed, I really like getting tattooed. I have 10 so far! 

I dislike: people who hate feminism, those who perpetuate racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, and and other forms of discrimination and getting B’s on assignments.

I am ball of fire that is constantly full of energy. I love getting to know new people and learning about their stories. Everyone is important and everyone should get to share their life and their feelings! I am searching for individuals that are over 18 as I feel like lived experience is important and I have a lot of stories that can be overwhelming for those less emotionally mature. I just really like authentic people, you don’t have to worry about impressing me! I have no restrictions on genders, locations, or anything. 

I have always exchanged letters. I feel like it is intimate and beautiful and something that I never want to lose. In my letters I often send art, poetry, and if we get to know each other well enough I also send bigger packages. I want someone to talk about big things (racism, how shocking images may or may not be art) and little things (I ran into a bookshelf last week and I have a bruise shaped like a chicken, big hero six was the best movie ever made, why is burnt orange such a weird color) I also have a lot of postcards so even if you just want to exchange those I would love it! 

As you can tell I’m never concise and always rambly and I would love to hear from you 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you all! You can message me here
