Meet Ari Jacobs’11, who can’t wait to get a puppy

February 15, 2012 at 11:26 pm

Ari 1

Name/year of graduation: Ari Jacobs’11 (December graduate on an honors term.)
Hometown/residence:
Mequon, Wis.
Major:
Chemistry.
You may have seen me:
Playing indoor Frisbee in the Flood Arena or doing homework at BSC meetings.
What are a few of your favorite things?
Besides long strolls on the beach and romantic candlelit dinners, I enjoy taking multiple-hour naps after lunch and singing in the shower. I also love the Talking Heads concert movie called Stop Making Sense, which all of you should go on Amazon and buy this instant.
Favorite meal?
My mom's quiche will make any normal person cry with happiness. I also have an unhealthy addiction to the "crack" cookies at DK’s.
What’s the number one thing on your bucket list?
To win the intramural Frisbee championship on campus. I don't care if friendships are broken, I'm going to win.
What do you do in your free time?
Lots of running and going to the gym. I used to be extremely frightened of falling off of treadmills. I am thankful those days are over.
What can’t you live without?
It would be difficult to live without any kind of toothpaste.
What are you most looking forward to?
I cannot wait to get a husky puppy. Most beautiful thing in the world.
Any advice:
Beloiters at Commons: could you please put your cream cheese, margarine, or butter on your plate and return to your seat, instead of spreading it while everyone else has to wait? We can be way more efficient y'all.
