My Impossible List

What?

  • I've always thought about listing the stuff I'd like to do in my life. I think I’ve had a plain old bucket list in the form of a Notepad Text Note ever since I was in school. However, I never got around to anything on the list. The list would just passively lie there on the hard drive of my laptop. I was too lazy to take action.

    To fix that, I’ve created my impossible list. I got the idea from Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it and a regular bucket list. Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. This is mine, which is, of course, ever-evolving.

  • Read 1000 Books [55/1000]

    This goal is quite broad. Really, it just means read a lot and constantly be learning.

    To that end, I want to make sure I go through lots and lots of books! Initially, one of my 2014 resolutions was to simply read one book a month. That would come to 12 books a year, which is more than I imagine most people read. However, I’ve decided to try and outdo myself, and am currently trying to read one a week (at least).

    You can check out the books I've read on my Goodreads Profile.

TL; DR

  • Jack of all trades; master of some.

    I have 2 years of experience in UX/UI development, 4 years in software development, and 6 months of experience in fimmaking, and I am currently passionate about:
    - User Experience Design and User Interface Design
    - Filmmaking and online viral content generation
    - Public speaking
    - Running and reading

    I love to share my enthusiasm and passion for my interests and hobbies, so feel free to hit me up at jasdev@singh.am and let's get the conversation started!
