My self-summary
Hi, my name is Jesse. I live in Wilton, CA and commute to Davis where I work as a software engineer.

My favorite color is blue, I have two golden retrievers, live in the country, drive a Scion FR-S, prefer Cherry MX-Black keyboards, and my football team is the Seahawks.

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile :)
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly, I'm just going to work and get through life. I have recently been getting into cycling and car racing. Cycling used to be this long, tortuous event I would occasionally participate in because my father wanted me to... but I figured out that I was just cycling wrong (long story). Cycling is amazing, and I've had a couple semi-pro cyclists tell me I'm a natural, so there's a new hobby. lol

Car racing is something I've always wanted to do, but I finally have the time and money to do so. I'm still at the bottom, taking lessons from instructors, but my plan is to get my racing license someday and race with a sponsor. I am so excited that that could happen one day!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read voraciously, mostly science fiction and fantasy. I'm currently reading The Hollows series and about to finish. I have no idea (not even the faintest) what I'll read next. Mild anxiety over this.

I don't particularly watch movies, but my favorite at this point in time is probably Pulp Fiction or Django Unchained.

I don't watch a lot of television. My favorite shows from ages gone by include Top Gear, NCIS, CSI, Jeopardy, Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, and House. Grey's Anatomy was good too.

Music... I'm all over the board here. Right now my favorite genres are Electronic Trap and Pop. I'm always listening to music at work and I'm constantly finding new things that are interesting to me. I'm currently doing a deep dive in 90s music as a genre study.

I pretty much like every kind of food I've ever tried. I have yet to try sushi, but that's mostly due to an irrational fear of eating some sort of shellfish I turn out to be allergic to and dying. I've never been invited to sushi either, so that fear's held up for 12 years now.

As for what's particularly my favorites: American, Mexican, Korean, French, Italian, German, Mongolian, Chinese, Nepalese

Just no coconut. I despise coconut. And mint.
The six things I could never do without
1. My car - my life, arranged as it currently is, could not possibly exist without my car. Plus, I really enjoy driving.

2. A four burner stove. That sounds a little petty, but have you ever tried to seriously cook on fewer burners? I got by on one or two for a while, and I have sworn an oath to myself that I will never go back. Heck, I might even make six burners stoves a new mandatory in my life.

3. Fitbit / fitness tracker. Without my Fitbit, I would know so much less about how active I am, how much I can eat today, how I'm sleeping etc. I can be a bit of a data junky, and the more metrics I capture about myself the more fascinating all the data in context becomes.

4. My family. They made me who I am and I love them. They're the people who accept me for the reason of being related to them. It doesn't matter who I am or what I'm doing, they are there for me. How could I live without that kind of support?

5. Refrigeration / Ice boxes - Food preservation. I cannot fathom how I would manage to function if I couldn't keep raw meat around for a few days, let alone freeze something. This modern convenience is a fundamental life-changer and I'm not really willing to live without it.

6. Someplace to escape to. You know, that place to go to when everything in life is falling apart or when everything in life is going right. Private, secluded with whatever ambiance my mood requires.

PS - I thought about adding some snarky things like carbon or oxygen, but that doesn't distinguish me much from anyone else, does it?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Seriously, what *are* the six things I could never do without?

There were former slaves alive in the 1920s. Wow.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night I'm at home, probably reading or watching Netflix. Sometimes I'll have plans out, in which case I'll probably be going out to dinner and movie with a friend or hitting up a bar to catch up with an old acquaintance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tear up at the sad parts of a lot of movies.
