Hi there! My name’s Maxine and I thought I’d give this a go in hopes of finding a pen pal~*! I’m 20 and I live in northern California, USA, and I’m looking for a snail mail pen pal with maybe the occasional package – I also really enjoy arts and crafts, so that’s an option too 🙂

About me:

  • I’m Chinese (which seems like it would be pretty obvious from the picture lol, but it bears mentioning I suppose) but I was born in the UK and lived there ‘til I was maybe 9 (I am awful at the Chinese language tho)
  • I have 2 cats and I love them to bits, but I also love dogs and really like all fluffy mammals period (am deathly scared of spiders tho)
  • I’m going to college but I haven’t declared a major yet; I’m definitely wanting to do a double major with design and deciding between either sociology or psychology

Likes n dislikes

  • I have a stationery problem and I love office supplies a dumb amount and am constantly buying more pens
  • Movies/TV/Books – yes to all of them!! I grew up with Harry Potter books/movies so obviously love that big time, my favorite book is Franny & Zooey by J.D. Salinger but these days I don’t read nearly as much as I’d like/used to read, and TV-wise I l0o0ve Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Game of Thrones (which I just started I KNOW I am v late to the party haha), How I Met Your Mother, Great British Bake-Off… tbh the list goes on
  • I like to try and keep up with current events and politics (mainly in the US bc that’s where I live) – I’m pretty left-leaning, so maybe that’s something to bear in mind?
  • I am legitimately constantly eating (Chinese food, bread, pasta, chips, granola, like…. everything)
  • Travelling!!! Cannot get enough of it!!! I spend half a year in China and did a bit there, some places at home in the US like New York and LA and Portland, France (!!! tbh I am a bit of Francophile), and the UK
  • I love art! Art museums are my jam, and I’m trying to get back into creating art myself so painting and things like that 🙂
  • Music-wise, I mainly tend towards the indie hipster side of things – The Strokes, The xx, Arctic Monkeys, Haim, things like that. Big into the album Watch The Throne lol, and also am a basic bee who loves Taylor Swift..

Requirements 4 a penpal:

  • alive
  • breathing
  • replies “both” when asked if you are a dog or cat person (jk you’re allowed to have preferences)
