    This actually happens to me fairly regularly, where people think I've disappeared just because I spent the past 10 days in the CLIC lab.

  11. Honestly...  

    everyone is stressed about finals, but not everyone engages in stunts that are cries for attention.

    You guys all need to shut the hell up. Jake is an incredible person and, like all of us, has some shit to deal with. Everyone deals with things in different ways, and clearly he needed some time to himself. Some of you are really a bunch of insensitive pricks. He's going to be infinitely more successful than the vast majority of you, I have no doubt in my mind. Until then, mind your fucking business.

    Hi all, this is Jake! Im okay! No stunt was attempted! I have overprotecting parents and I failed to check my phone for 2 days..and they wanted to make sure I was ok. This is kind of embarrassing, and I didn't mean to cause any disorder or mayhem, and would appreciate if this post ..and those on spec and around campus...would be taken down! Thank you for those who left loving messages..and haters..glad I gave you something to whine about for 20 seconds...but wish everyone a healthy and safe finals period.

    In all seriousness, I'm sorry for causing this mess, and would like to thank those who have reached out to me to make sure everything is ok, and also would like to thank campus security for taking this seriously, in case this were indeed an emergency. Safe studying and holidays!

    I know Jake from a couple of classes we've had together and I was really concerned for him. I don't appreciate people on this forum making assumptions and calling names. There is obviously a reason why this happened, if there were reasons beyond his power that made him go missing,then I am sincerely thankful he is unharmed.
    If this was for attention, as many allege, he had his reasons and motivations that pushed him to do that. Would you have preferred he had dealt with the situation differently, possibly something worse? How differently would you have reacted? You would have been lamenting not being able to do anything about it, or at least try to help. That's how I think about it, though there are implications to your actions if you do something like that, I think that any cry for help should be heard and acknowledged. I would definitely prefer any scare than crying over someone I know getting hurt. Think before you type. Don't assume.
