I recently got into penpaling. I know someone that was doing that but I was a little leery at first. I mean, it is a bit awkward writing to people you don't know and I imagined getting people who weren't anything like me. It is hard to write someone that is not your age or into similar things. It is also a bit nerve-wracking putting your address out there to strangers. Well, I found a website called Letter of the Month and for the month of February they send out mail every day the post goes out (so 24 days in Feb). I missed it this year since it was already May but there are people that send mail all year, just maybe not daily. I filled out my bio and posted in the forum and right away got 4 friends. I was thrilled to see they were all people that have things in common with me. Two of them have already become really good friends and the other two I just haven't heard from as much because they are in the UK and mail to them is slower. I love getting mail from all of them.
Anyway, I am slowly accumulating goodies for writing. I am also practicing writing Spanish. I hope to find a Spanish speaking/writing person that I can write to. I am learning Spanish on my own at home and I am a beginner. I am using duolingo and a textbook and workbook I got on Amazon called Destinos. I think writing to someone in Spanish will help me to learn. There are so many words I don't know but I can figure it out using my computer.
