Hello everyone! I just found this website and thought it was interesting so I guess I’ll give it a shot and try it out.

A little bit about me:
I’m a sophomore (2nd year) college student studying Physics with a concentration in Astronomy (though my area of study may change) and I’m looking to work as a tutor. Although I’m studying science (and loving it!), I hold an immense appreciation and interest in the arts. I love to write and play music, and I do some freelance photography and visual art (though I’m still in the process becoming good at drawing and stuff). I also like reading, cartoons, anime/manga, k-dramas, documentaries, youtube videos/culture, nerd culture, meaningful conversations about politics/philosophy/culture/mental health/etc., grunge/hipster aesthetics, sarcasm, veganism, poorly written fanfictions, gay fluff, animals, beanies, tea, etc. idk I like a lot of things.

I’m sort of in the middle of this journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance and I’m constantly looking for things that help me learn more about myself and grow. I keep a notebook of things that I want to learn about, shows that I want to watch, things that I want to do, etc.. I always thought that there was something intrinsically charming about having a pen pal so I guess that’s what drew me to put this out there. I also don’t have a social life *laugh cries*

So basically, I’m looking for an email friend who wants to make a meaningful connection with someone else through meaningful conversations. We can talk about anything you’d like! I just want to meet and connect with genuine people on a personal level. I might be willing to contact through physical/snail mail, but I’m not sure yet. I know a limited amount of Spanish, and I know a few words in German and Japanese, but I’m only fluent in English (just fyi).

Preferences: Preferably, I’d like to talk with people around my age (so maybe around 17-22) and people who are comfortable talking in English, but if you’d like to talk, feel free to contact me! I’m accepting to people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, etc. and I’d prefer to talk with people who share that acceptance.
