My self-summary
My name is Jim. I have lived in California my whole life, and have been in Orange County for 6 years now. There are tons of interesting places around So Cal that I have yet to explore or even find out about.

I tend to be good at a lot of things (except skateboarding... I am possibly the worst person of all time), but I am still searching for that one thing that I am truly great at.

I really enjoy going on hikes whenever possible, watching plenty of movies, running, and taking drives with no destination in mind. I am always up for trying something new, especially when it comes to food.

I am looking for someone to go and explore everything there is to do out in the world. I just created a list of 101 things that I want to do in the next 1001 days... come join me cross those items off the list!
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from UCI as a Business Economics major a few years ago. I work as an accountant at a company that you probably thought was cool back when you were in junior high but now forgot that it still exists... Guess which one. It's a career that I am really enjoying!
I’m really good at
-Looking up new places to eat on Yelp
-Sports, especially soccer (my favorite). I also like playing basketball, tennis, and beach volleyball. Basically anything to keep myself active.
-Waking up early when I actually wanted to sleep in
-Cooking after looking up recipes
-Getting lost
-Finding my way after being lost
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my smile, my eyes, or even my eyelashes... they are pretty long.

Music: I seriously do like all kinds of music... I can find always find some songs in any genre that I will enjoy. In general, I do tend to gravitate towards indie/alternative rock and I've been getting into electronic music recently. I love going to concerts and music festivals. For me, one of the best things in life is finding a good new band or artist that I can be obsessed with for a while. Here small part of my list: Brand New, Childish Gambino, Purity Ring, Matt and Kim, Glass Animals, Tchami, Chomeo, The Shins, Kaskade, Disclosure, Andrew McMahon, Marshmello, RAC, The Lumineers, Caribou, and Eric Prydz.

Food: This one is easy... Anything that tastes good! I'm one of the least picky eaters ever. I always look to try something new if I have a chance.
The six things I could never do without
-Family and friends (obviously)
-Mental stimulation (puzzles, reading, watching TED Talks, etc.)
-Athletic activities
-Road trips
-Live music
-Amazon Prime
-Slightly breaking the rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The details of the business I want to own later on in life, the vastness of the universe, and what items I would put in Chopped contestants baskets if I were in charge.
On a typical Friday night I am
It definitely varies... but ideally I would be out at a concert or going to bed early to get ready for a Saturday adventure!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am part bionic. Well not really... but I do have a titanium rod in my right leg.
