Penpal of the Week # 48


Happy Halloween!


Today, the Penpal of the Week is a young girl from the USA. I’m always happy when I see that some teenagers are still into penpalling nowadays!


Please tell us about you!

My name is Jessie and I live in Alabama. I’m 13 years old! I have a twin brother which I am one minute older than! I have 3 cats, a dog, and a hampster.


Jessie 1

Me and my brother.


I play tennis for my school team and I love to write. I like to read but only books that I pick out. I can make any situation fun no matter what! I love to ride horses and swim!


I don’t like to talk about myself a lot so I’m not sure what else to put!


Describe your personality in 10 words!

creative – outgoing – fun – cheerful – confident – determined – faithful – likeable – nice – quiet

Me and my best friend Alex!


How long have you been penpalling? How did you first start? Tell us about your first penpal!

I’ve been penpalling for about a year and a half now. I first got into penpalling because my friend had told me about her penpal from another country, so I wanted to try penpalling too!


My first penpal was a girl from Paris, France! Her name was Carmen and she was 13 too. She also taught me a lot of French words to say!


How many penpals do you have now and where are they from?

I have only one penpal right now and it’s Carmen. A lot of my penpals will just come and go but Carmen always stays! I love Carmen because it feels like we have grown up together! Carmen and I can talk about anything anytime!


I did have a penpal from India. Her name was Mary but she moved and we lost connection.

Me at Homecoming!


What are your favorite topics to discuss in letters?

I really will talk about anything! I love when people are honest though because it makes me feel like they really care about writing to me. I guess it really depends on the person I’m writing to! :)


What are you looking for in a penpal?

I’m just looking for anyone around my age (or any age!) that would want to talk about their life or their problems or anything! Just a long distance friend! (:


Jessie 4

My dog, Ozzy!


What do you like the most about penpalling?

I like that feeling you get when you get a letter from your penpal! Also how it feels like when that person is standing right next talking to you instead of half way around the world! (:


In what language(s) do you correspond?

I correspond in english but I can speak some french!


What are some of your habits in regards to letter writing?

I have to write in pen but sometimes I’ll use pencil. I also have to use a cute kind of paper. I think regular paper takes the fun out of penpalling. I have to write in my room where it is quiet. It takes me a while to write back because I tend to write a lot.


Jessie 5

My handwriting :)


Has anything strange/funny ever happened to you since you’ve been penpalling?

No, nothing strange or funny has ever happened to me since I’ve been penpalling. I guess that’s good! :)


Have you met any of your penpals?

Yes! I met Carmen one summer and we went all trough Paris! We saw the Eiffel Tower and the Arch of Triumph! That was one of my best summers! :)


Are you currently looking for more penpals?

Yes!! Anyone who wants a penpal then I’m your girl! Or if you know anyone around 13 who would want a penpal then I’ll be their penpal! (:


Thank you Jessie!

Is anyone near her age reading this?

Who wants to be pals with Jessie? :)

Cats can be strange…




I don’t even know what to say…

What a weird position!

I love my little Augustin…

My name is Julie and I'm 34.
I live in Québec (close to Montréal) and I speak French.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of cats and a day full of hugs.
