Post by: stellifera on April 15, 2011, 04:15:48 PM
Dear fellow boxers,

I know similar initiatives were here before, but I have new note paper and I'm lacking inspiration regarding people to write to. Soooo... I'd like to send some people at the box a little note :) PM me your address if I don't already have it and I'll write to you in the next week or so.

I started just a minute ago by finally mailing a card to lucyanna that had been in my room unsent for about 2 months...

Best,
Jetske

I'm generally useless at writing letters in general, like essays, I start rambling, so it's probably better I don't give into my temptation of trying to get to know boxers better through the old form of letter writing.

if you hesitate because you're bad at answering: it's not quid pro quo! I just like to mail people random things :)

Heh, but then I feel bad that the effort is put in, and seemingly unacknowledged.
Oh what the heck, I'll PM you my address when I get home from work

As it happens, I am entirely proficient with the ancient tools once referred to as "pen & paper"
(although I generally print everything, rather than use script like a grownup)....

If anyone would like mail-largely-for-the-sake-of-getting-mail, just let me know where to send it.

I feel really odd asking you, but do you want to send me mail? I love getting mail, but I rarely get anything unless they're bank statements, or shit from school. Sometimes I get cheques which are always fun.


I have sent a few shadowboxers some mail, a few of them have gotten back to me. Actually, I got this postcard that was signed by a bunch of boxers including Amanda and Neil, and it made me so fucking happy. I still have it. It's in my room. I believe a bunch of the mail that I've recieved is in my room. Indja's post is in my room, beside my bed. That sounds creepy. It's because I placed it on my book shelf beside my bed. I'd like to send out more mail/post, just because I like writing people things and sometimes email feels a little too instant for me (duh, that's the point). I still have to write Indja a letter that I forgot to compose a few months ago. Egh, sorry!

I love writing letters, A LOT. The problem is, i do send real letters abroad but all of them are for business, like most of my e-mails.


These days i just want to write, and reveal a piece of my world  :) And a little answer could work, because i might think you're an imaginary friend..

Any pen pals?

PS: I really live in a distant country from most of the people here, it might sound like Mars if i gave my adress. So i'll send it via PM.

I'm sorry you guys (Roisin, Jarrod, Cee, Audrey), your letters are almost finished for months but i want to enclose something nice and now I'm in the middle of moving, so hopefully I'll finally get to mailing them next week. In the meantime, if there are other people wanting to receive random nonsense from me: PM me!

I'm so bad at this.  I've written Jetske 3 letters already, only because I forget to send them and then have to write a more up to date one.  I have one right here that I meant to post the other day.  Look, it does exist!

Someone send me an abusive text in the morning to get me to post it!

thanx for the proof,

you created when you colored the ends of your tresses ; - }

I sent you my home one and Seamy's one, because I'll be living there from next Sunday to the start of term. Or possibly all year, if my application isn't accepted for accomodation at college o.O God damn I would have a lot of sex if that happened.
