I have started a few discussions. I still never know how to begin them.
Okay, now we've gotten past that maelstrom of awkwardness I can begin on the interesting part.
Hi, my name's Sarah. (Hi Sarah). It has been three weeks since my last fish, on my honour, or may I be chopped up and made into soup.
I love Finding Nemo. Let us all take the pledge.
I am a nice human, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food.
As you may have guessed I am looking for a pen pal. I prefer snail mail because I love receiving letters, but email too is fine.
I love to read, write, and cook. I find that all of those activities are much more enjoyable if accompanied with very off-key singing.
I love Billy Joel. Fellow fans probably recognised this if you bothered to read the title.
I am looking for a penpal because I find it extraordinarily difficult to engage someone in conversation and therefore cannot make any friends outside of the flashy-flashy internet.
You may have detected my awkwardness. The stilted language and short, numerous paragraphs were probably a giveaway.
I never know what to say.
I love Harry Potter and Doctor Who and want a penpal I can talk to.
I'm 17, I've just finished high school, and I'm planning on studying Creative Writing next year in the hopes that I can get my PhD and become a doctor of creative writing. My main reasons for this are a) so I can introduce myself with "hello, I'm the Doctor", and so when people inevitably ask 'so what are you a doctor of?" I can answer "creative writing. Impressive, right?" Of course, I do also want to get better at writing.
If I was stranded on a desert island I would take a boat, a 'How To Survive On Desert Islands' guide, and a large bottle of water in case the journey home was long.
I can be kind of crazy and excitable, especially late at night.
I love all kinds of animals.
My sweet tooth is lodged so far into my gums I'm afraid I'll be the only grandmother in existence who hides Nutella and M&Ms in the closet.
I AM VERY ADAMANT THAT KOALAS ARE NOT BEARS.
P.S. I have a confession. I had to look up 'maelstrom' so I knew I was using it in the right context. I'm still not sure.
