what do you talk about in your letters?
Personally I really enjoy having penpals from so many different backgrounds, you just get to discuss so many more topics than if you would only write to people in the same situation like you are in right now.
I finally got to write some letters which will go out tomorrow. I might finish one or two more letters by tomorrow, but I also have to proofread about 100 pages until tomorrow for work, so I probably should do the latter first… Oh well.
But let me first show you the correspondence of this weekend…
Time was long overdue for me to send a postcard to my goddaughter again. We spent some lovely days in Berlin together and on her way back she had a hopefully interesting train journey.
|Rocio and I are as well talking about birthdays, holidays, castles and gardening. She is always using great stamps, don’t you think so as well? I used one of the envelopes I got from Laura L. for her letter.|
|Jennifer and I are talking about things as simple as the weather to family issues and daily life. I think many of you know her and her great talkative letters =)|
|Many of you know Bee as well and I took way too long to answer her colorful letter… Apart from our studies we talk about Prague, Berlin, music and skiing. Oh and you don’t really can see that well in the picture but she has an amazing handwriting.|
Laura is having kind of a tough time right now, so I hope my letter will cheer her up a bit. If you are having some free time and a spare postcard and postage, why don't you send her something in the mail? I swear she's worth the stamp =) Her address is:
1501 East Gardner Lane
Peoria Heights, IL 61616USA
|Another first letter, this time from Stephanie in the USA, so we're still in the process of getting to know each other.|
After having written eight letters (I'm currently in the process of writing another one which will be sent to Turkey) I caught up at least a little bit, but of course there's still way to go - I hope I can write a similar amout of letters next week and the week after that as well. Still. classes start tomorrow for me and I might not be able to reply very fast in the next weeks - so please bare with me.
How did you start October? Did you have a nice few last days of late summer? In German, you call these last summer days of really nice weather in September "old hags weather"... Yes, we do cherish our grannies :)
