emailing! :)

Post  Maggie on Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:58 pm

So I'm a semi-big emailer. That is, I love emails and I love writing them, reading them, receiving them, and everything in-between. (Spam not included)

Who else here likes emailing?

Me! Smile I love getting emails and reading them and writing emails to other people (unless the person is super important like an agent in which case its not fun because I spend an hour staring at the screen trying to convince myself it's as perfect as it's gonna get haha) besides that I love it!

I will write you sometime then, Sarah. xD

And I know what you mean about agents and stuff! I also get nervous sometimes when I email a parent for the first time about watching their kid or something. I don't know why, I just want to come off mature and polite but easy going at the same time. xD

I like emails too BUT I not as much as letters. I've always been intrigued by having a pen pal & renting out a P.O. Box. Embarassed

@Lizzy Yay! I love emailing!

And I totally know what you mean, I babysit all the time (or use to when I didn't have college classes) and I get so nervous trying to sound polite and mature so that I make a good impression.

@Shahira that would be cool, have you ever done the letter drive where you write and send letters to soldiers in Iraq and stuff? My school has a club for that where we can send them to the troops Smile but I think getting a pen pal would be cool! I just wish I liked writing by hand

I've never done that but that's really cool. :] I'd love to do something like that. I'll have to look into it!
I guess because I write in cursive it's just fun for me lol.

I don't write cursive very well. Sad I learned all right, but it never stuck. I print instead -- or, use my own version of printing. My handwriting can be very sloppy and hard to read, and for some reason I have habits that I can't seem to break with how I write my letters. Maybe I just need to start over! Wink

I have a few online pen pals. It's not nearly as fun as snail mail, I'm sure, but a) I hate writing by hand and b) it's hard to find a trustworthy website where I'd actually give out my address. *shrug*

It is fun receiving letters from my pen pals, but mostly they're in French because I do it to practice, so it can feel more like a translation assignment sometimes, you know?

I use to write in cursive when I was in a hurry because it's so much faster than print. &also, I'd always try to make my print look pretty but it just looks blah. :/ &it's NEVER consistent. My handwriting looks different every time I go to write lol.. Good thing my cursive stays consistent. Even though it's barely legible, I still love writing in it. :]

Lizzy, I wouldn't want to give my address to random people either. But that's the beauty of a P.O. Box. :] lol..

I'm hoping that when I found my other half he'll want to write letters with me, even if we live in the same city..haha..

I love email and mail, typing and hand writing, both print and cursive. I'm pretty flexible that way, lol. Smile That would be so romantic, writing each other a letter and then sending it(even if you were married and lived in the same house Laughing), like once a month, or once a year. Oh man, when I meet my other half...let's just say he might want to work on his letter-writing skills. Razz

Yay! I'm happy you write in cursive too! Haha I was beginning to think I was the only one. Very Happy

I know what you mean! Mine is not very consistent either. And it's just...sloppy! Unless I write really, really slowly. (Which I never can. :/ )

Totally about the P.O. Box.

Aww, that's such a sweet idea! I hope he does!! That would be SO romantic.

I LOVE that idea. Even when you're married!
