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.

My goal for 2020 is to read 50 books:

  1. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

  2. Where The Crawdads Sing by Deila Ownes

  3. The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

  4. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

  5. The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Currently Reading:

  1. Go by Kazuki Kaneshiro

  2. This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel

  3. After You by Jojo Moyes

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: Thanks for the pretty card and goodies! I tried to read Crawdads for book club but i couldn't get into it. Right now I am reading Beguiled - they made it into a movie!

Comment: Thank you for the cute giraffe note card. I do not journal daily myself. Some days I write in it and others I just decorate with bits I receive in swaps. I find it fun just to go back and flip through the memories even if they are only in picture form. I highly recommend this type of fun journalling if you want to put something down but don't feel like writing all the time. <3

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.
