Letter(s) from Maria Skoolkina to Kevin (Northern Ireland)

Letter 1

I saw your structure on Yahoo and decided to write you. I want to tell you a little about myself.
My name is Maria. I am 27. I am from Russia, Ivanovo. I will not write you much about myself right now, I want just to give you an idea of who I am.
I have a job . I have a higher education and I am rather intelligent. I think I have everything, the only thing I need is a beloved person because I want to have a family.
I have really many interests: music, reading, books, computers, movies, good conversations, sports and many other things which make the life wonderful. I can't say that I have many true friends but a lot of acquaintances. Friend is a person who can always help me, who can support you, on whom you can rely and whom you can completely believe and trust. And I am lucky to have some really good friends. I am very sociable that is why there are many people I have good relations with.
I am rather independent and I work hard to have what I need.
If you are a little bit confused with that you are more senior than me I can say that for me the age is not the most important thing, it is only figures, the main thing is how you feel.
Well, that is all for now. I will be waiting for your reply. I think we should use every chance to find our happiness. Life is too short to use it only for thinking and dreaming. I try to act but not only to dream.
Write to me back on mine e-mail:
Have a good day.
P.S. My box on Yahoo.com I do not check, therefore you should write to me on mine e-mail.

Letter 2

Hello Kevin!!!
I am very glad to get a letter from you. So, how are you? I hope all is fine. May be you wonder why I have chosen your country, I don't know why, may be because I am disappointed with Russian men and I decided to find my happiness at another place. It seems to me that you are a very good and interesting person, and I would like to know you better. I have never been in your country but I have heard a lot of it and I would like to know more about it. It my first time when I use the Internet to get acquainted with somebody. I know the English language not so well, but I hope, that you can understand me. I will write you a little about myself. I am 25 years old, my growth is 168 centimeters, my weight is 53 kg I have dark hair and brown eyes. I live in Russia, Ivanovo It is not the big city, but it is very beautiful and cozy. I like to walk on its streets, there are a lot of cinemas, parks here and cafes here. I love sports, i am fond of aerobics and I like very much to meet with my friends when I have free time, but, unfortunately, i have not a lot of spare time, as I work much. Sometimes we go together on picnics. And do you love the nature? As for me, I like an active way of life, I like to be cheerful and open, and I like fair, kind, sincere people, that you for some reason seem to me such, therefore I have decided to write to you. I want very much to learn about you more. Tell to me please something about you. I shall be very glad. Where do you live? Than you are engaged? All will be interesting to me. I am not engaged but I would like to find my love. Tell me about your city, your interests.
Your new friend, Maria.


Letter 3

Hello, my friend Kevin!!!
Thank you for your letter. I was glad to get it. How are you today? I want to tell you about my work. I work in the bank, I am a cashier. I will write you from my work, I work not every day (in a day) that is why I won't be able to write you every day but I will try to write you often. I like my job, it helps me to be independent and I meet a lot of people there but I feel very tired at the end of my working day. As I have already written you I have a higher education. I studied at the University, at economic faculty. I studied English there and a little at school. I wish I could speak it better but I hope you understand me as I understand you well. Since i have started talking about work, tell me please something interesting about your working day. It will be very interesting to me. How was your day? What is your weather? It is cold here. I would like to tell you about my interests. I like an active way of life, I like to go camping, I go there with my friends in summer, it is very funny, i like it very much. I like sports, I like swimming and in winter I like skiing. I also like traveling but I have never been abroad. I hope someday I can visit Spain and Italy and some other places. I like dancing very much! And do you like dancing? And I adore music! I listen to different kinds of music, it may be classical music or even rock. And what about you? I like good movies, it may be a comedy, tragedy, or love story. My favourite American film is "The pretty girl" with J. Roberts. (I am not sure how to write it). My favourite actor is Richard Ghir. My hobby is cooking. I like pelmeni (it is Russian dish, meat in pastry), borshch (soup) and different salads, I like also ice-cream and pizza. What is your favourite dish? Unfortunately, I should go. I promised to help my parents. They live in suburb. And I live in the city, I rent the apartment together with my roommate. I will write you later, hope to hear from you soon.

Have a good day. Your friend Maria. mailto:mashaflower@mail.ru

Letter 4

Hello, Kevin!!!
I want to say you that I am very glad that I can write you. I want to learn about you as much as possible. I think it is very important to have person whom you can trust and tell everything. Do you agree with me? Recently I went to parents. I wrote you about them already a little. You remember? They live in the small private house. My mother's name is Tatyana Andreevna. And my father's name is Konstantin Sergeevich. My father was an engineer, he worked in the factory and my mother was a bookkeeper. I was born here and I had a usual childhood but after finishing school I went to the city to enter the University and now I live here. My parents are on pension now. They have a small garden near their house and they have a dog. By the way, do you like dogs? I like animals very much, especially dogs, I would like to have my own dog or may be even two dogs. I like visiting my parents, you feel as if you are in the village. I love nature. How do you spend time together with your friends? When I meet with my friends, we go to the cinema together or we sit in I, and sometimes simply we walk in parks. But sometimes I prefer staying at home to walking. I like reading, or I may watch TV, or merely listen to music. Well, I should go.

Bye for now, Your friend Maria.

P.S. I liked your music. You could not send me more music!!!

Letter 6

Hello Kevin.
I was waiting for your letter. I am always glad to get e-mails from you. I like learning about you and I would like to know about you as much as you can let me know. Tell me about your day. Now I want to tell you about my day. I get up at 6.30 when I should go for a work. My girlfriend with whom I rent the flat usually sleeps, she wakes up later. She works at the post-office. Then I have a bath and have breakfast. It takes me about 15 minutes to get to my job, I go there by bus. My working day begins at 8. I like my job because I meet a lot of people, I accept accounts. This work helps me to be independent, I can buy everything I need, clothes, different things. Then we have a break from 12 to 13, I have dinner at cafe where I can talk with my friends (I have some friends at my work, it is great). At 5 p.m. my day is over and I back home. I like to walk with my friend after work, we can talk, go to the cinema, disco. But usually I came back very tired after work and I prefer stay at home where I can read or watch TV. Tell me about your day. I am very interested in you and I want to know about you more, I think of you and your life there more and more often. I have a break now at my work, I can use one of the computers here, it is a pity that I don't have a phone here which I can use to call you, I can do only local bells using this telephone and I can't call in other countries, I would like to hear you, may be sometime.? That is all for now, my break is over, I will write you later and I will wait for a letter from you. I miss your letters, I like reading them.

Bye, Maria mailto:mashaflower@mail.ru

Hello my sweetheart Kevin!!!
I forgot to give you my address, mine the address Russia, city Ivanovo, street Soviet the house 35, an apartment 21. An index 463954. My full name Maria Skoolkina.

I read and re-read your letters and I am so happy I am able to communicate with you. I want to tell, that I very much like to communicate with you. You are a very interesting person, and I like your letters. I dreamed for a long time to find such an interesting, clever, kind person, as you are. It seems to me, that many women would be happy to be with you. I am very glad, that you write me. I would like to say you how happy i am, that at last i have found the man with whom i can easy communicate. But I am afraid to bore you. I simply want, that you knew, that i like you very much. How are you? I had a usual day, nothing in particular. But your letters light up my grey week-days. I told about you my parents. They are glad that I have found a man whom I like but they don't understand how it is possible to communicate so sincerely with the person whom i have never seen before. But when I have told them about you, they were delighted, that I have found such a good person. They very much want me to be happy and i want it too. I want to have not only my love but also my best friend whom I can trust completely, who will believe me. I want to have my own family and I know that someday it will happen. I miss your letters and you. I need you. mailto:mashaflower@mail.ru

Letter 8

Hello Kevin!!!
Hi my dear and loved. At me all is good. I had today a usual working day. Soon a weekend and I want to visit the grandmother with the grandfather. They frequently call me on a visit, but I never do not have for them time. At us it is still cold, possible from for that that has dropped out not enough snow. Weather solar. My sister was ill an influenza slightly, now sits at home, goes on recovery. Still I today went on the market, bought products: meat, oil, sour cream, milk, cottage cheese etc. we shall prepare for tasty supper, it is a pity that to you beside is not present. I hope at us with you still all ahead. I have dream. I would like to jump with a parachute from height of five kilometers. It may seem to you silly, but I would like to look at the ground from height of the bird's flight. Have you ever jumped with parachute? I think it is so wonderful and you can get a lot of impressions after it. In general I very impressionable person, do not like, when at me shout, to me at once to become not on myself. There can not be long time one pending something. When to me sadly try to be closer with relatives or friends, thus, lifting the mood, a heat of people close to me. Try to keep abreast of events of world around. How your relatives and friends would characterize you? I do not love the cloudy weather which is making up for grief and melancholy. I love sunny days and the blue sky, a green grass and flowers. Adore to be in picturesque places of a nature to run on dew barefoot. To me to like to float by a boat to bathe and sunbathe. Like to sit at a fire under the night star sky, in a circle of friends. Certainly, I prefer an active way of life. You like picnics on a nature?
Your Maria. mailto:mashaflower@mail.ru

Letter 16

Hello Kevin!!!
Today is remarkable day. I have understood from your letter, that all is very good. I am very glad, that our feelings are mutual. I never could imagine earlier, that it is possible to fall in live with somebody, just reading his letters. Now I see, that it is possible, because it has taken place with us. Today I went in travel agency and have learned, what will be necessary for me for trip. The visa and the passport are necessary for me. I have told, that all documents will cost 556 $. Besides the insurance in case if something will happen with me, I can be treated in your hospitals. When I shall make documents, I shall take holiday and I shall come to you. But for me it is the big money. You know, that I receive a little. Besides I should help parents. Could you help me with money? It is very a shame for me to ask you, and I do not like to be indebted to somebody, but I very much want to see you! May be we shall try to do it? I hope, I do not put you in a difficult position. In any case, write me, whether you can help me. I very awkwardly feel myself, but I cannot live more so far from you.
I with impatience wait for our meeting, I hope, that you too!
That is all, my loved.
I love and miss you. Yours Maria.
