My Life In Numbers

One sunny day in math class, while I was daydreaming and looking out the window, my teacher said "So when are you ever going to use this math stuff?"

"Pfft. Never." I thought, oh. so. snarkily.

He went on to explain how everything in life can boil down to a mathematical equation.

A number.

Don't get me wrong, I still don't like math.
But he's kinda right. 

Like Jason Michael Carroll says..

"Numbers all around, flying by, up and down,
Some as slow as Christmas coming,
Some like the speed of sound,
And we all wonder, what they mean,
The highs, the lows, the in betweens,
Most of them mean absolutely nothing
But some of them mean everything"

So here are some numbers that reflect a little about my life:

3: The number of times I hiss at Loki before he gets my drift

Linking up with Greta :) I'd love to read your numbers!


  1. Very nice, I like your numbers. I wish I had thought of the last three lines. I guess that's why you are the most awesome Jessica. :)

  2. Love these! You're such a baby. 21?! Goodness. We currently have only one bottle of liquor and three gallons of milk. It needs to be way more balanced than that. :D

    Also, Pinterest?! UH HUH.

  3. Cute! Don't you hate waking up right before the alarm? I always feel like I missed out on a valuable couple minutes of good sleep. But I also hate the sound of the alarm, so there's that.

  4. Jessica,

    So glad you did this link up w/ Greta, too! It was so much fun for me.
    Also, I hate waking up in the morning. And I have lots more milk in my house than liquor.
    I blame the kids.

  5. Fun to read..laughing at the # of liquor bottles compared to the # of mil cartons in your house. :)

  6. I don't know 10 Jessica's but I do know 3. This was so much fun! Just getting around to posting mine and reading others.

  7. What a clever/creative post, Jessica!!
    I currently have no milk in the house either.
    Also you're the most awesome Jessica I know :)
