the one with Friday's TEN

I am sure all of y'all have seen the deal on Facebook about giving someone a number...I think that it's kind of stupid, but I also thought it would be a good blog topic. So in the event I got the number 10 [like everyone else seems to have received], here are 10 random things about Jake that you may not already know..

1. During our "Moment of Silence" we have every morning at school after we say the Pledge [I know, we are the last of a dying breed that still says the Pledge of Allegiance--but I love it] I say a little prayer, and thank the Lord for my blessings--My Family and Friends. As my great friend always reminds me..."My Cup Runneth Over..."

2. Other than Friends, the show on TV that I could literally sit down and watch for hours on end is Keeping Up With The Kardashians Law and Order: SVU. I have an obsession with it. Typically when I see there is a 'marathon' on [which is almost every single weekend] I watch or record, even though I have already seen every episode...

3. I ride to school everyday with my 7th grade English teacher. She left Lee Academy about six years ago and we now teach together. She makes my mornings better and my afternoons really good. She always gives the absolute BEST advice and I love it--my free therapist. She is set to retire in a couple of years, and my drive will be oh so lonely...

4. I don't like to think I would do anything over in my life, but in the event I could go back to my Freshman year of college, I would tell my liver to buckle up I would not be a business major. I think I would have loved being a Pediatrician even though kids bug me sometimes... I once thought of majoring in Art, but then I saw the look on my parents' face and quickly struck that from the record. However, I would have never met my buddies I have now, so I would say life is pretty good....

5. My brother and I are like night and day. Nothing alike, in any way--looks, personality, interests...The only common denominators we share are our style [because I style him], and our smart-assness--I'm president of the club and he is VP.  But I would do anything for him in the world and he would do the same for me.

6. I have a crazy obsession with even numbers. Nothing that has a number is ever odd. Temperature, volume, alarm clock, gas price--it's really good when I can match up an even dollar amount to an even number of gallons, appointments, grades for students...I know.. Multiples of four are even better. I think it's because I was born on 12-24-84, which are all multiples of 12--meaning they are are divisible by four--which is always my number.

7.  My middle name is Chandler...just like Mr. Bing--and I thought his name was Chandler Bink in high school, so my AOL screen name [blast from the past] was mrBINK03...[it kind of made me want to be held back a year knowing my graduation year was an odd number]. I wonder if AOL misses us....

8. My dream job is to work for E! News... I think Jason Kennedy is a douche canoe, and I would be so much better. They never called me back after I sent a resume...

9. I think I learned more in my Creative Writing class in high school than I learned in any other classes combined. Our teacher forced us to think outside the box, and I am eternally grateful! I am not sure I would enjoy the blog world in the event I didn't sign up for her class to complete my schedule. She would also be my phone a friend in the event I were ever a contestant on Millionaire because I don't think there is anything she doesn't know the answer to...[and she would count off ten points for my ending the previous sentence with a preposition].

10. I am really considering making a totally irrational purchase. Turns out, Justin Timberlake hasn't been at home much lately in his rented house next door to my friend in Memphis. I asked them to bake the Timberlakes some muffins and in return they would ask my friends to be their new best friends, and I would become JT or Jessica's personal assistant, and I would get tickets to his show in Memphis on Monday night. But turns out that's not what went down.. So I may just spend half of my Christmas Bonus on VIP tickets...

Bonuses**** (because 12 is is better than 10, and it's divisible by 4)

11. I once bought a car and traded it in after only putting 940 miles on it--I lost a lot of money.
side note--this just my last car that I bought on a whim because it was good looking...


12. Holly and Chris are even better in person if you ever get the honor of meeting The Royal Couple of the Blog World and Laura is even more stylish if you can imagine...

Y'all now know more than you need to about me...I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

until next time...

  1. I love me some Law and Order SVU. Last season's finale made me so mad. How could they leave me hanging that long thinking about happened to Olivia? It was a sad day when I realized I had no one to debrief about it the next day.
