About Me


I’m Jam, an assistant language teacher (ALT) on the JET Program, from the Philippines. I currently live and work in Japan.

This is not a how-to blog, a travel blog, a lifestyle blog, or a portfolio of my humble writing abilities.

This is really just a personal blog on my thoughts and events happening in my life. This is somewhat like an extension of my diary, which means that sometimes ideas will wander and jump around. Don’t expect to find cohesion here. I’m not shooting for top marks in lit class.

But I also write stuff here for the purpose of recording information — that way if I need to remember how I went to this place or what I did there and whether I took pictures or not, I can just look it up here.

But if you also find some stuff here to be useful, well, I’m glad to be of service!
