Points: 67

Mid-30s in Auburn, Washington USA. My main hobby is getting and sending mail: I do Postcrossing and penpal letters, so along with that I enjoy going to thrift stores, doing paper & collage art, and collecting & using stationery items of all kinds. I do a lot of reading and journal writing, weird documentary & movie watching, and sewing when I have the time.

I use the machines almost daily, for personal correspondence and creative writing attempts. I look for typewriters with unique typefaces, and I have a modest variety of brands.
