About Me

Hello! My name is Joanne. I have always enjoyed writing letters and cards for my friends. I love to travel. I have not traveled to many places but my goal is to travel to a new country every year (so far I have only traveled to China and Korea.. Australia is my next travel destination.) I loved learning about new cultures and trying new foods.

I love drinking different types of teas and coffee while reading a book.

I keep a paper journal. This is a way that I de-stress at the end of the day. I also keep a grateful journal to celebrate all things big and small in my life/day. UPDATE: I actually stop writing in my journal recently.

I received a "1" rating from DMarcella. She never reached out to me before giving me the rating. She also received a "1" rating for the same swap. Not sure if it is related but I have never flaked on a swap before.

Favorite Books

I love reading books! Some current books that I just finished was Turtles All The Way Down, Me Before You, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, The Woman In Cabin 10, The Silent Patient, Everything I Never Told You, and All We Ever Wanted.

One of my goals for the new year was to read at least 2 books a month. I have been really bad at reading these days.

Favorite Movies

I am an avid AMC A-Lister. My friends and I are watching movies every week. I love watching anything Marvel, romantic comedies, horror/thrillers, heart-warming movies, etc. Some of the most recent movies I enjoyed watching was Parasite, ENDGAME, Breakthrough, Shazam!, Us, How To Train Your Dragon, Inception, Knives Out.


I love tea! I always try to drink a cup of tea everyday. Some of my favorites are green teas, white teas, and black teas. I do not like fruity teas and chai teas.


I am really into postcards, have been for a long time. I like most types of postcards but please no free / ad PCs or religious ones unless the swap dictates otherwise. I prefer them to be sent naked just because I enjoy seeing everyone's writing on them and what happens to them when they travel my way.

Things I Want to Learn

Some things I wanted to learn this year are:

Driving (My family makes fun of me because I am the only one who does not know how to drive in my family) Calligraphy Crocheting


I mark it sent as soon as I drop it in the box but sometimes it won't be postmarked until the next day. If you don't receive my swap PLEASE message me. I take pride in sending everything out on time and I have no problems remaking/resending if something has gotten lost in the mail. I will ALWAYS message you if something has come up and it has to be sent out late.


1/20/20: I will be away from 1/20 to 1/25 for a business trip. When I return, I will rate all the swaps I had received.

06/23/19: I have finished my first week at my new job! I have finally caught up with rating all the swaps I have received. At this point, there should not be a delay in me rating anything I get in the mail.

06/11/19: I am currently on vacation and I will start a new job on Monday. Sorry for the delay in rating but I will get to it as soon as possible.

Comment: Thank you for your note! How inspirational! I'm glad you are in a job you like now! Something similar happened to me. I had to leave my last position without having another position secured. Now I absolutely love my 'new' job and hate that I had to waste so much time in that old job! Good luck to you in 2020.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Christmas card! I can’t stand people who treat others that way. People who have a superiority complex are impossible to communicate with. Good for you in how you handled her though! Happy New Year!
