Going Out In My Mailbag Today: 2 Items!


 

Items #1 & #2 - Postcrossing Postcards to Taiwan & Finland

So this week I got to break out my new Impossible Project postcards for the first time instead of using my free Brock University cards I picked up at the school store.

When most Postcrossers upload the images of the postcards they send or receive, more often than not they use a scanner to upload the images onto their computer. I chose to start doing the same with my new postcards. As to why the two of them scanned so differently, with the Polaroid border looking darker on the left picture as opposed to the right, I have no idea. Truthfully both pictures look a little odd in the way they've scanned, but it's nothing that's all that bothersome, so really, what does it matter?

The person from Taiwan that I'm sending a card to asked Postcrossers on her profile to tell her their favorite song. I wrote down two that are my favorites at the moment, which are "Back and Forth" by Operator Please (which has been a favorite of mine since the Spring, it seems) as well as "Sugar in The Snow" by Newton Faulkner (the song is a seasonal favorite, but Newton Faulkner's music will always have a special place in my heart).

On the secondary postcard, I picked that image because of the recipient's love of flowers, according to her  profile. Within the message I didn't write anything new; just talked about how I'm a 21 English & Writing student in university, and that I like to read as well as keep up a blog about snail mail (*waves*) and that I also enjoy making vlogs and posting them on YouTube. Again, nothing special by usual postcard standards. Even so, I enjoy sharing a little piece of myself with so many different people around the globe. Even if it's sharing a small, basic something, it's always special.

Inside My Mailbox Today: 1 Item!


Item #1: Package from chapters.indigo.ca!

Within this package, and the picture, are 2 volumes of manga and 1 box of note cards.

Anybody that knows me well enough will know that the volumes of manga belong to me. I've been collecting manga since the 8th grade, and as on today I own 300+ volumes, and I take care of all of the specimens that I own. This particular series, A Devil and Her Love Song, is actually very well written compared to a lot of other Shojo series that I have come into contact with over the years, which is why I am still invested with the series up to volumes 11 and 12. If anybody that enjoys reading manga is looking for a new shojo series that isn't entirely shallow and is unlike other high school series on the marker, I recommend picking up the first volume of this ShojoBeat series.

As for the note cards, they are not for me. This box of Polaroid note cards is intended for my pen pal Diana as part of her big birthday package that I am still putting together. I have a similar box of note cards that I own, only they are dubbed Pretty Polaroid cards as opposed to just Polaroid cards, which only means that the images included in the box are different than in the original collection.

I'm excited to get her birthday package out to her. Think all I have left to pick up is a couple jewelry pieces from Ardene and I'll be all set!

Until then, I'll keep you guys posted.
