Hello Everyone! I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I don't believe that I subscribed to other_voices, but I was very active in the penpal community throughout high school & actually still swap today. I found this group via the Facebook group, and I was quite surprised that a few people actually were looking for me there.
Back in the day, I went by the pen name Rabid Child (after the TMBG song) and lived in Oakdale, NY. I recognize quite a few of your names, but I must admit that my memory is fuzzy! I've been penpalling since 1989-1990, and have met quite a few people along the way.
So, Hopefully I'll stumble upon some old friends!! Nice to meet you all :)
