No, not age! It's my 100th post, and so I wanted to thank all of my kind followers. I have changed so much over the past few months and you have all been there with me, as the journey unfolds. So i wanted you all to get to know me a bit better.

  81. If I think about people as a whole, I will apply sociological theories.

  99. I have a university interview on Wed. I’m worried haha.
  100. And um ... 100 ... um ... I say “um” WAY too much, haha. At least 3 times in a sentence.


So that’s me in a nutshell. If you made it through all 100, WOW, you deserve a medal. But there will be a few changes as of my next post.

Should I keep them a surprise?

I’ll go with majority vote. But I won’t blame any of you kind and devout followers if you choose to leave me.

~ I wish you all he best, Jack xx


[UPDATE:] My interview went really well. It took us 2 and a half hours to get there, but it was a fun journey. Ariel and I made a little game up where we saw how many cars waved back at us. We got 2. We even went into a proper traditional bookstore, with books from like the 1700’s. And they were hard-back! (fact 101. I have a thing for hard back books lol). So the interview was a group one where we just had to create a short video, consisting of 6 still images and a voiceover, where we had to make the audience think. All the feedback I got was great haha. Thanks for the support everyone! Got another interview on wed so fingers crossed lol xx

I'll NEVER leave you, Jack. I "made it" all the way through, but it wasn't a struggle. I enjoyed it. It taught me some more about you. There's a lot I could comment on but I'd rather stick with the really cool stuff here. It took me 3 tries to get through Watership Down, but I enjoyed it in the end.

I'll speak to one point in particular: to #99...DO YOUR BEST! That's all anyone can ask. If you are the way you are around me, you'll do fine. Smile, all that...avoid the "ums", that is just brain punctuation.

There's many others that I share with you. So you are not alone. Be happy to go into depth in chat if you wish, but Blogger limits comment length! LOL

Peace <3

37 ex gfs! Can you safely assume now that you are gay lol? If you have an 'addictive' personality then stay away from marijuana and other assorted drugs. You say that you were good at hurdles; keep up a regular jogging routine to stay in shape. I have a cold glass of orange juice first thing every morning too. Never multitask while driving a car. Here's politics; the extreme left of liberals represent ultimate freedom and chaos, while the extreme right of conservatives represent nazism and mind control. Most governments try to keep to just left or right of center in order to get elected. You're forgetful cos you multitask. Keep regular sleep hours; go to bed and get up at the same time most days for better sleep, try for 7-8hrs solid sleep. My pet peeve is annoying erratic drivers who can't drive or keep to the speed limit. But actually you are a well-rounded guy Jack and maybe you have a few warts the same as the rest of us. Good luck on your university interview. bfn - Wayne :) (I have brown eyes and in my younger days dark brown hair too)

Hi there, Jack

Congratulations on your hundredth! You've done it in four or five months; at my current rate, I have another five years to go ...

We seem to have rather a lot of your hundred points in common. I could happily pick your lists to bits (and may yet do so, given time) - but for the moment, like Jay, I'll just wish you the best of luck with number 99.

What medal do we get for reading through to the end of your post? Something like KCB (Knight Commander of the Order of the Blog), perhaps? :-)

I'll be interested to see what changes you make; if they happen with the next blog post, they will inevitably be a surprise. I very much doubt I'll leave you, though.

Take care

Is urinating really the high spot of some people's morning?

And (2) how do you know?

Thank you for writing 100 things we never knew about Jack - I laughed, cried and nearly threw up.

Jack xx said...

Haha, I think you need to read the first sentence again Tman:
“No, not age!”
And I’m sure better editing is needed, but I don’t edit it. I write it on word, and out it goes :P its just how I am lol

Thanks Jay, I slowed down a bit with blogger, but I’m going to pick up the slack from now on. So hope you enjoyed beating me for once, it wont happen again lol.

Yes Wayne, 37 lol, and still not sure :P
Of course I’ll avoid the drugs, although I sill admit I’d like to try weed ONCE, just for the experience lol.
I DO jog atm so no worries.
I know those basics of politics (yay for sociology) but like anything beyond the co-election we have atm and I’m lost lol.
Perhaps that is why I’m forgetful.
Sleeping isn’t that easy for me, but I wont go into it now.

Thanks Mark, as I said above, the interview went well. And of course, we’ll call that the medal you win. I may make one ... I am yet to decide lol. And hope you don’t leave (hope no one does) but I wont hold grudges lol.

And finally, Micky. Apparently it is, you always hear about it (or at least I do). And no problem, I enjoyed it haha. But “threw up”?! I thought I avoided all of the vulgar things? Haha.

Jack xx

Hi there, Jack

I thought I should say that I'm having e-mail problems at the moment - I can receive but not send - but I'll reply (positively) to your last message as soon as I can.

Take care
