Sometimes Joel is very affectionate.(:
Not to brag or anything, but Joel has always been very attached to me and has a hard time when I travel without him. I think he’s gotten better than in previous years.
The worst was two years ago when my sister and I left for a week long trip to Guatemala and my family dropped me off at the airport. My parents like to walk me in and see me off and they always bring Joel even though he gets very mad. Well that particular time he got physical and threw himself on the ground and and hit my parents. The last time I left the country, I had to leave without him noticing.
Although… Joel is very nosy and always following me around. I usually pack my things days in advance and he’ll see my bags and constantly ask where I’m going. What really breaks my heart is when he’ll get his own bag and pack too. Other times he gets it and will try to help me pack by bringing me random items.
Once I’m gone, he’ll send some mean emojis and after a day or so he’ll be okay and try facetiming multiple times. It’s so cute and it makes me miss him so much. When I call home when I’m away, my mom always that joel will stand in the middle of the stairs or in my room saying “emelas” which is his way of saying “gemelas” which is Spanish for twins. (In case you didn’t know I’m a twin.)
Right now I’m in Austin for a work trip and he didn’t realize I wasn’t home. He called me and asked me to bring me home some McDonald’s. After the first night he got it and started sending videos of himself, ya know… in case I forgot what he looks like.
Joel can be mean but he can also be so sweet and loving. I always say I want to leave Louisiana but I don’t think I can survive very long without him.
