penpalsover20:

Hello!  I’m Danielle. I’m 27 & originally from Pittsburgh, but recently moved to South Carolina for sunshine.

I’m looking for a few pen pals:
– one Spanish-speaking pen pal who would like to be patient while I try to learn more of the language and/or let me be patient as I help them learn English
– one writer/artist who wants to talk craft and swap art
– people who like exchanging letters & fun things like recipes, sketches, pictures, feelings, whatever.

Not picky, but I am looking for a female-identifying pen pal.

About me:
I’m into quiet things: tea, reading, farming, poetry, folk music, podcasts, writing, photography, NPR, libraries, learning new things.  I’m vegan & love animals & nature.  I like camping, hiking, kayaking (alligators are a new experience), swimming, and being outside.  I love to cook and think about things and study food justice and the food system and environmentalism.  I like yoga and biking and self-care and meditation and traveling. I like to eat healthy sustainable food, but I’m also enjoy tacos and burritos the size of my face.  I also like loud things: riot grrl culture, punk, zines, and DIY.  I’m a mental health advocate, feminist, and left of left politically.

TV Shows I like: Breaking Bad, Girls, iZombie, Veronica Mars, Jessica Jones, Bob’s Burgers, Broad City, Master of None, Love, OITNB, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, The Office, and a bunch of others because I like TV a lot…and movies.
Bands/Music I like: Waxahatchee, Hop Along, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Mount Eerie, Belle and Sebastian, Devendra Banhart, Blackbird Raum, Ghost Mice, Ted Leo, Neutral Milk Hotel, and a bunch more things.
People/artists I like:  Gary Snyder (most of the beats, really), Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, bell hooks, Walt Whitman, Hermann Hesse, Aldous Huxley, Cheryl Strayed.  I’m always reading.

Let’s be pen pals!  Email me at daniellemarieatkins@gmail.com or message me on tumblr.
