Hi, I’m about to move onto a new stage in my life (University!) and would really like someone to talk or write to about my excitement and fears. I am planning to study English Literature, so if you have an interest in reading, that would be ideal as books are what I’m going to live and breathe for the next three years. However, equally I have a big interest in Film, I run my schools European Film Club and work part time in an independent cinema. I am into more art house films, but also have a soft spot for crappy action. While horror isn’t my thing, my little sister is all over it, so I can discuss that as well.
I’m quite scared about moving away from my sister and step-brother who are my best friends, and I think building connections with new people will really help in this new transition.
I am really lucky to have an eccentric mother, and so am really widely travelled for my age. I have visited mostly European countries, such as France, Germany, Greece, Sweden and Russia, but also been to New York and Ontario, Canada. However, when you’re a tourist you don’t get a very good feel for the culture, just the sights. I would love to learn about other lifestyles, whether it’s your religion, traditions or anything else.
Preferences: I’m not very particular with age ranges, however 14-23 ish would be preferable. I think it would be difficult to get to know someone without common life experience. Unfortunately, despite my best attempts I only speak English, so that would be important for a pen pal. However, I do have some embarrassing GCSEs in German and Spanish, so I am willing to sharpen my rusty skills if you would like.
