A few months ago I found out about the International Geek Girl Pen Pal Club, a group that pairs geeky girls/women with other geeky girls/women who want to write letters.
As I've mentioned before, I love writing to other people and I wanted more steady pen pals. I love Postcrossing but that doesn't let you really get to know somebody.
I was paired with a pen pal, Jennifer, and today I got my first letter and package from her!
I love getting mail, and this was an awesome package. Especially because I collect E.T. merchandise, and I'd never even seen this keychain before, so I didn't even know I was missing it! It looks perfect on my shelf:
(This is actually only 1/3 of my collection, it's where the keychain looked best).
This is an awesome project, and I'm so thrilled to have found it. I encourage every geek girl to go over to the website and sign up for the next round, which always opens on the 15th of the month. There's also a lot of fun features on the site, where you can make your own page and post pictures of what you get from your pen pal. Their tumblr is full of cool stuff too.
