MEET: BSC President Jeb Bleckley

October 5, 2010 at 1:32 pm

 

Jeb BleckleyName: Rev. James Edward "Jeb" Bleckley, III.
Hometown and current residence: From Austin, TX; now on Haven 3rd.
Campus Involvement: BSC president.
What’s the number one thing on your bucket list? Well, the number one thing is to not die. A close second would be to publish a book.
Proudest moment? I am so insufferably over-proud, that it is difficult to separate out a single incident in my charmed and perfect life.
Any do-over requests to lodge with the universe? Explain. I think a do-over for really anything I have ever done would be a little silly, since most of the time bad things have happened, they have happened because I was lazy. Problem is, I am still lazy, so going back and telling myself to get off my duff and accomplish things will fall flat. Good novels have convinced us that character progression is the natural course of things, but most of us never change, leaving do-overs superfluous.
What three items go in your desert island backpack? The internet, a computer, and a hand crank generator
