Hello, I'm Jae.

I am terrible at introductions, so I'll just let you in on a few random things about myself. I hail from Manila, but I'm now based in San Diego. Upon graduating from college, I worked as a Production Editor for a UK-based publishing company for four and a half years, though I have a degree in Industrial Engineering. I currently work as a Technical Writer for a Pharmaceutical company. I married Roan, my former-high-school-classmate-turned-lover. You will read a lot about him in my blog, so I might as well introduce you to my US Army veteran husband, too.

Anyway, welcome to my blog! I started leaving footprints in the blogosphere since 2006. SCATTERBRAIN is a blog name I have kept since I started writing, which I think is simply appropriate. In this ‘brain dump,’ I write whatever comes to mind or what I think is worth sharing, which has evolved into a lot of things. This is the place where I chronicle my new life in the United States one day at a time. Lately, I mostly blog about our travels and our current lifestyle.

There are no rules here; however, it is worth noting that all entries are personally written by myself unless otherwise stated. If you are concerned with the content, or wish to borrow anything from this site, please drop me a line or two here. While you're at it, read my FAQ page for more information.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy your stay!
