This is the first time I’ve ever done the whole pen-pal thing so I don’t really know what to expect or do. But I guess I’ll start with the basics. My name is Sophia but everyone I know calls me Soph. I’m 16 and a junior in high school. I’ve lived in a couple different places, but right now I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota which is a frozen tundra located in the United States. It’s not actually all that bad… sometimes I really like it. I don’t really describe myself very often but I guess I like acting, listening to music, watching TV shows, and hanging out with people. I’m a big fan of learning about other people and listening to their stories. I usually find that the moments I cherish most are fairly subtle, mundane things like driving late at night with a friend and listening to their music through the car speakers. Which, when I think about it, makes it sound like I’m pretty sentimental and kind of sappy, but I refuse to say that out loud if anyone asks. Anyway, I would say I’m a pretty alright person in a hopefully non-narcissistic way and I’m just here looking for someone to get to know. Generally, I’d prefer talking to someone either my age or older but I’m down for whatever. All genders and sexual orientations are cool with me. Oh and for logistical reasons, I’d want someone in the U.S. for physical letters. However, as someone who’s lived internationally, I know it gets lonely sometimes so here’s my email for those who don’t live in the U.S. or if you do and just wanna email (which is cool, too) – firstname.lastname@example.orgI guess I’ll see what happens. Best wishes!
