About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet new people, have a good laugh/fun time, to grow as a person......

ABOUT ME

My name is Colin James, but everyone calls me CJ. I am 26 years old, and I am coming back to Korea in mid-April. I spent one amazing year in Seoul, and I am coming back.....for how long I'm not sure, but at least a year.

I am a very easygoing, fun, caring, funny and I love to laugh.

PHILOSOPHY

Besides trying to pay it forward, Max Ehrmann sums it up best:

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Be at peace with your higher power, whomever you conceive him/her to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can offer my couch (if I have one when I get my new apartment!) or my floor. I am living in Bundang, near Moran Sation.

I haven't surfed anyone's couch yet, but mine is available.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have relatively little (pretty much no) CouchSurfing experience.

It doesn't sound like rocket science, so I think I can catch on pretty quick! I'm very respectful of others so I think it won't be too hard eventhough I am a newbie, hahaha.

Interests

Anything fun:

-good conversation/laughs over coffee or any type of refreshing beverage;
-trying a new restaurant, or an old favorite;
-playing sports (ESPECIALLY SOCCER!);
-museums, art exhibitions;
-a night, or afternoon for that matter) of debauchery;
-I'm easy....going! hahaha

  • arts
  • coffee
  • exercise
  • skydiving
  • sports
  • boxing
  • soccer
  • business
  • science

Music, Movies, and Books

To many to list.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once while on Spring Break with a few friends, I went skydiving. I jumped from 13500 feet (4500m), from an old, rusty plane where both the pilots were smoking as we flew.

I may or may not have peed my pants. NO REALLY, I'm not sure if I did or not.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an 'out of the box' thinker. I don't think my opinion is right or wrong, simply mine based on my own experiences. I am eager to learn what others think, know and have experienced.
