Hi journal, my name is Joan!

That’s probably the most unoriginal way to start a journal -_- But since I’m lazy, I won’t erase it so here we go ^^

Today was my first day in Korea! Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I thought I would see Joseph again! My heart was throbbing strongly in the plane when they announced its landing and it pounded like crazy when I recognized him among the hundreds of unknown faces in the crowd and I was finally able to jump in his arms! I was so glad to see him again, grinning with all my might and hugging him so tight, I almost left my suitcase behind! Yet I was a little ashamed of myself afterwards, thinking it was pretty childish (typical of me!) which he probably thought too even though it made him smile that warm, comforting smile I love so much :D However, that was not the proper behavior of a 27-year-old scientist who decided to move to the other side of the globe to assist her professor/boyfriend in his works for the government. In the movies, girls like me definitely don’t belong to that kind of screenplay. My friends always said I would rather belong more to a comedy or maybe romantic comedies. You know? The loud, crazy BFF with a heart of gold? That’s me! (well, about the heart of gold, anyway. Don’t listen to them I AM NOT LOUD >< !!!) Yet here I am! I’m glad to be by Joseph’s side again, especially since it’s all I have right now.

True, there is still my mum but I haven’t seen her or talked to her since she moved to Seoul with her Korean boyfriend (like the song says: it’s a small world aaafter aaall…) and I started dating Joseph. How can I describe our relationship? Let’s just say we don’t like each other’s partner very much. To sum up, I think hers is a spineless idiot and she thinks mine is an old creep just because I’m half his age and we started dating when he was still my teacher in Harvard. Only one of us is right. Guess who???

Joseph and I had dinner* and made love as soon as we arrived at his house so I had to wait for him to fall asleep to take out my computer and give into my good old no-lifeness (what do you mean it’s not a word? It’s definitely mine in MY vocabulary!!) once more to start this diary (when I have enough material, I’ll consider posting it on a blog). It’s late in the evening, I’m tired but I can’t sleep because of that stupid time lag. The clock says it’s 2 am. So it must be noon in Washington… I’m tempted to use Skype but I know that if I start, people will call me every night and Jo will be mad at me for staying so late at night T_T

*with soju! I guess it’s like sake here, except it tastes more like benzene... Seriously, how can Joseph drink that stuff without getting sick?! What have they done to my Jo-Jo D: ?!

Korea looks so weird! The buildings in Seoul are all super high and look incredibly modern. But outside of the capital, none of them is the same height. They all look piled up like cubes and the streets are all curvy, unlike in Washington where everything is straight and square. As I looked around me at the airport and on the road, it felt so strange to see so many giant flashy signs and not be able to read any single one of them O_O Plus people kept looking at me weirdly, which was even more obvious when we arrived in town. What, have they never seen non-Asians before? Korean spring looks prettier than in the US though, with all the cherry-trees blooming everywhere. Feels like I walked into an anime. The people are also incredibly pretty :3 Especially young people with their fair skin and thin legs (no, I’m not jealous SHUP UP >< )Can’t wait to start working and meet our fellow American colleagues. Jo didn’t tell me anything about the project. No matter how hard I tried to tickle him, kiss him, torture him, he just kept saying “You’ll see tomorrow” like a broken record. I guess I have no choice, it will be a surprise! Can’t wait to see! J

Great, I’m supposed to go back to bed now. But I got myself so excited talking about it there’s no way I’m going back to sleep. I WANT TO KNOW!!!

Oh well, I’ll call it a day (and a night) anyway XOXOXO,

Joan <3

Sushi3809: I would say, it is splendid to see a writer who knows their way around language.
