Introduction

((I've always wanted to learn this pen trick. I used to stare at boys in class who could do this with their pens so easily, always trying to figure out what their secret is. They'd usually look at me like I was a freak and go back to facing the front.)

Alright, let's give this thing a shot.

I've decided to give blogging another shot. I figure I've got nothing to lose!

So anyway! My name is Kacie, and I'm a Canadian English & Writing student studying at Brock University. My hope is to one day break into the publishing world and to work as an editor, and eventually become a novelist. But that stuff can wait for now; I've got plenty of time to worry about it.

Until the future comes knocking at my door, I've decided that focusing on the present will be so much more fun. Which is why I'm starting up a new blog, and I'm going to center it around something that I've become very passionate about as of late; writing.

Not just the creative writing or the online roleplaying writing that I typically have fun with on a regular basis, as that's been part of my life for 6+ years now. What I've recently been introduced to (or reacquainted with, really) is the art of letter writing.

Thanks to my amazing girlfriends, in March I joined an online group known as the International Geek Girls Pen Pal Club, or the IGGPPC for short. From there I acquired an amazing pen pal that I communicate with on a regular basis, through letters as well as Twitter.

From there, the obsession with "snail mail" has continued to grow. I'm in contact with a lovely lady from the UK who will be embroidering some Bioshock-themed gift for me, which I'm very much looking forward to. And since becoming an "iggle", I've become a vlogger as well, and I've made a great group of friends from there, whom I've been sending things to since the group was first formed.

On top of that, in the past couple of months I have also joined another great online group known as Postcrossing, where you're able to send and receive postcards from all over the world. I've sent out about 6 so far, and I've received two, one from Japan and one from the Czech Republic.


Here is the first Postcrossing card I've ever received :)

I'm hoping that I'll use this blog to document items that I send and receive in the mail, and I will also include any sort of life updates that may relate to what I'm sending out into my mailbox.

As you may have guessed from me being a part of a group with the word "geek" in the title, I am a class-act geek, through and through. So expect that my geekiness will constantly be shining through.

I think that's about all I have to say for now! I`ll keep you posted!
