15 things you may or may not want to know about me

So I was tagged in this thing, and I do it begrudgingly for you Melanie.
1- Dream Job
Well I'd like to say that I am currently in my dream job, but no, I am not, if the pay didn't matter I would love to be a radio DJ, for my own radio station, playing whatever I wanted, like Jack fm, but Jessica fm. It would be awesome, the accounting thing is just to pay the bills.
2- Favorite Drink 
Well I have been hitting the caffeinated drinks pretty hard lately and my favorite kind of pop is wild cherry pepsi, but my other one is Fresca. There is something so refreshing about a uncaffeinated drink that doesn't have sugar in it.
3- Most important beauty secret 
Well if you know a little bit about me, sleep is my most important beauty secret. I wait until the last possible second to get up and get ready and it's totally awesome. I usually am a few minutes late, but it's totally worth it. Also, I've never dyed my hair. Some of you may think BORING! but I really like the low maintenance of it all. My hair is super healthy because of that and I always get compliments from hair dressers.
4- If you had an all-expenses paid vacation, where would you go? 
Well I think I would have to go back to the UK, do some research on my favorite bands beginnings like Led Zeppelin, the police, and U2 and see where they got some of their inspiration. I've already done that for the Beatles when I went to Liverpool last summer.
5-If you had 3 wishes what would they be? 
First I would wish for more wishes :). Second I would wish to be financially stable for the rest of my life. Third I would wish for me and my families happiness.
6- If you could have one type of food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Candy. It's my favorite food, it's the best thing ever and I'm a connoisseur of all things candy.
7- What is one talent you wish you had? 
Well, I wish I could be better at public speaking, I get nervous from the moment I find out I have to get up in front of people until 5 minutes after I've presented.
8-Biggest Celebrity Crushes
I only have eyes for one, his name is Hugh Jackman and he is dreamy
9- If you could look into the future, would you? 
No, as much as I want to I wouldn't because I think it would ruin all the fun.
10- What made you start a blog? 
Well I attend a lot of concerts and some of my friends told me that I should start one, my roommate Ashlee convinced me to do it and even came up with the name Jessica's Jams.
11- What was the happiest day of your life?
I can't really pinpoint it down to one day, there's been a lot. When I saw Eric clapton play guitar, when I walked across Abbey Road, when I was finished with my last final in college, just to name a few.
12- Top 4 book recommendations
1) the Last Lecture 2) How to win friends and influence people 3) the Great Gatsby 4) The Book of Mormon 13-What is your guilty pleasure movie? 
That would probably have to be Pride and Prejudice the low budget one, so cheesy, but so awesome. I think it was mostly filmed in Provo.
14- What's your worst habit?
Having a messy room. I try to be good and put my clothes in my closet at the end of the day, but mostly they get thrown on the floor. Like I used to tell my mom growing up, a neat room is the product of an empty mind. 15- What Golden Girl would you be? 
I was going to say Sophia because she's the bomb, but Melanie stole that one, so I would have to say Dorothy, she's always got the quick comebacks and is sarcastic as all get out, just like me.

I have discovered my latest musical obsession.  Her name is Adele, she's 22 and absolutely amazing.  She has already come out with 2 successful albums 19 and 21. Adele is from the UK and has a really cute personality, not to mention amazing songwriting ability. She's done a few covers on her albums including Bob Dylan's To Make You Feel My Love, and The Cure's Lovesong.  Her voice is packed with so much soul it would make Tina Turner cringe.  My favorite songs on her latest album 21  are Rolling in the Deep (See video below) and Turning Tables. I've included a link to her short concert from Live on Letterman.  I really hope she keeps writing music and remains successful. My words don't do her justice, check out the videos below.
