Pen pal?

I want to remember what snail mail is really like. I want the thrill of looking into a mailbox and being excited that there is mail for me. Does anyone remember highlights and Nickelodeon magazine? I was overwhelmed with excitement as a kid to get those. Oh, the good times…

Now, as an adult there isn’t much enjoyment with magazine subscriptions. They are all either telling how to lose x amount of weight in 7 days or how to please my man. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Every since I was a kid I always wanted a pen pal. My mom wouldn’t allow it because she saw too many things about some creep preying on children and finding out where they live. She had a valid point, people can be sketchy but I still always wondered what writing to a complete stranger would be like. How long would that person be a stranger to me? When would they be a friend? How long would we keep in touch? Would we ever meet?

Have any of you ever had a pen pal? If you happen to know of a site to meet a pen pal, feel free to let me know! Also if you are thinking Brittany don’t write to strangers and get yourself a subscription box haha, let me know what subscription boxes you are into.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

🙂 Brittany

  1. I had a pen pal in Mexico when I was in middle school, something they set up through Spanish class, so I have no idea how to do it now. It petered out as the mail was unreliable and we did not always get each others’ notes.

    I do think this postcard exchange thing looks neat http://www.postcrossing.com, but I’ve been too lazy to sign up so far.

    Oddly enough, I do have an international food subscription box from Try The World, which I totally justified to myself by arguing that I could build lesson plans around it and therefor declare it a homeschooling expense.

  2. A pen pal would be awesome, I saw go for it! As far as subscription boxes, I have Ipsy and Birchbox, it feels a little bit like Christmas every month 🙂

  3. I’ve always wanted a pen pal, too! But I never knew how to “find” someone to write to, plus what you said about your mother’s fears are the same of my parents.

    E-mail me your address and we’ll be pen pals? 😀
