My self-summary
Just an unassuming guy that graduated with his degree a couple years ago trying to figure out this complicated thing we call life. I hope whatever future I have involves kids in some way, because I find their honesty highly refreshing AND amusing.

I love eating, surfing the interwebs, and video games more than the average bear. I'm an introvert trying to make up for lost time by trying new things, such as traveling to new places (Route 66 is my current choice) and getting together with friends for the things they enjoy. It's been awhile since I've read anything seriously, and is another activity I'm trying to get into.

I'm a huge history buff, and I'd love love love to travel on the old Silk Road some day. How awesome would it be to road trip that trail?
What I’m doing with my life
Just started a new consulting job down in the San Diego area. Currently commuting everyday from South Orange County, and that's the easiest part of my job! I can't complain much because the commute is GORGEOUS.

Looking to move down to the San Diego area by September, at the latest.
I’m really good at
I really like listening to the stories of other people, and hearing them vent.

In a related topic, I'm pretty good about remembering inconsequential trivia that I've heard about people or that I've read about them.

Using quotes from movies (particularly Star Trek and Star Wars) in everyday day speech.
The first things people usually notice about me
A woman came up to me and told me that I resemble that Korean guy on American Idol. Another one compared me to that Japanese guy on Heroes. I think it's the glasses! :D

That said, my friends notice how bookish I am! I love to use complicated words when speaking.

People probably notice how bashful I am, because I might not always look them in the eye when I'm talking to them. Totally working on it though!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: Ender's Game, Bear and the Dragon, Farmer Boy, Art of War, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, anything by Jane's Information Group.

Movies that are AWESOME: It's a Wonderful Life, Ferris Bueller, Watchmen, Newsies, Sound of Music, Scott Pilgrim, Star Trek.

Movies that touch me (but not in a bad way :P ): Big Fish, Joy Luck Club, The Majestic

Favorite shows: Scrubs, Boston Legal, Law and Order SVU

Favorite food: I am partial to breakfast, sweet things, and Italian. I am open to anything that doesn't have excessive amounts onions or mushrooms. I try to stay away from Japanese food. Oh yeah, I also like mint flavored candy.
Six things I could never do without
The first thing I could never do without is a warm blanket to sleep with. It took me awhile to realize that I wasn't getting quality sleep because I didn't have enough blankets!

The love, guidance, and support from my family is something I couldn't do without, especially the support and guidance previously given.

I could never do without good books to read, or at least good reading material. I shudder to think of the day when I have to wear glasses to read. Ugh!

My vision's getting progressively worse, and I'm scared to death of LASIK surgery, so I couldn't do without glasses either.

Wikipedia. 'Nuff said. :D
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Phrases that only Americans use, and explaining those phrases to my foreign born coworker. No, seriously.
On a typical Friday night I am
...enjoying a nice quiet night in with a good book after a refreshing swim.

...occasionally I will be attempting to hit up food trucks with friends instead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit that my left heel has been run over by an SUV.
You should message me if
You think you could have fun exploring the food of Orange County/Los Angeles with me! That means you can eat more than three bites of food when you meet someone for the first time. I like food, so I'm going to be a little hurt if you eat like a bird around me.

Also, if life's journey is at least as important to you as the destination OR you aren't afraid of a little corniness/geekiness.

You have a list of DEALMAKERS, as opposed to a list of dealbreakers. That includes the absence of a "You should NOT message me if" section. :D
The two of us
