My name is Jessica. I'm Taiwanese but I was born and raised just outside of Chicago and now I live in Belize! I moved down to provide mental health counseling as I'm a marriage and family therapist (but I also see individuals). When I'm not working, I usually spend my days driving around the island of Ambergris Caye in a golf cart, swimming in the ocean, living out the island saying: "shoes are optional", losing bait to fish, bargaining for my fruits and veggies, enjoying tacos and banana juice, and hanging out with the community.
I've been here for about a year and I just recently started stand up paddle boarding and I absolutely love it! I don't get to paddle as often as I like but I treasure every moment I do. I also really enjoy kayaking and snorkeling. I guess it's safe to say I love the water and the beach! All I need now is a dog to join me in all the fun ;P.
A few other random things I like are: flowers, chocolate, fruits, baking, animals (dogs, squirrels, and turtles are among my favorite to get post cards of, but I like most animals), pretty landscape/seascape, doing laundry (I'm weird right? Does anyone else like doing laundry?), driving with the windows down (but now I drive a golf cart, so no windows!), people watching and learning about other cultures. I also used to enjoy lifting weights but I haven't gotten back into it after a few different injuries.
I'm always happy to receive a postcard that's related to the things I like but I also like cards that show off your country/city, typical tourist sites and greetings from cards. And if all else fails, send me a card that you like!
If you're stuck on what to write me, I would love to hear why you chose the card you did (if it's not obvious), about how you spend your days, about your job or what you're studying if you're a student, a funny story/a (family friendly) joke, a poem, your favorite quote, your favorite meal, learn more about your country, or anything else you'd like to share.
Could you please include the date and the weather on the postcard?
And if it's possible, could you put the postcard in an envelope? I like to collect stamps and this way I won't damage the postcard. But don't worry if you can't! I'll be happy to receive the postcard regardless. :)
Thank you & happy postcrossing!
PS: If anyone is interested in swapping a few stamps, let me know! Belize only has a very small selection of stamps but I'll send you what I can!
