i started using a bullet journal about three months ago because it’s so much easier to use than a normal diary which has set layouts and space. The beauty of a bullet journal is that you can include what you want to include and be flexible about how your life is presented. For me, it’s a bit of a brain splurge where i can just put everything down exactly how i see it in my brain at the same time as making it look pretty and it being a useful organisation tool.

I am a junior in college, working towards my Bachelors and Masters of Social Work. I am an INFJ and a Scorpio.
I love reading, mostly comedy biographies, psychology, and horror. I occasionally write but my inner procrastinator comes out and I never finish it.
When I am not studying my butt off I am playing the Sims 4 or creating DIYs.
I enjoy watching Netflix. My favorite TV shows are Parks and Rec, The Office, X-Files, Supernatural, and Impractical Jokers.
My favorite artists/bands are Paramore, Twenty One Pilots, Jon Bellion, and Harry Styles.
I am a feminist, liberal, egalitarian. I am open-minded and, as long as you are respectful, I will be too.
I have had one pen pal before and it kind of just petered out. I am looking for someone to send emails to or message on here first, and then start sending small packages or letters. Obviously, with a college student budget, those would have to sporadic.

Preferences: I would prefer someone who is 18-30.
