Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
Netflix's hit series "GLOW" is based on the real events surrounding the campy and low budget show Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling which reached popularity on American televisions from 1986 to 1990. The show featured untrained female wrestlers-many of whom were desperately out of work actors. The show embraced its camp by putting comedic skits in between the wrestling bouts. Another classic element to the show was that the women wrestlers typically began every episode with a rap and each wrestler character had their own signature rap. The politically incorrect personas of the women wrestlers were separated into "good" and "bad" characters, or "faces" and "heels" as they came to be known. The women were even expected to keep these personas off camera, as the producer insisted that rivalries on the show not travel or fraternize with their onscreen enemies. Keeping rivals apart had to be especially difficult because the cast lived dorm-style complete with curfews at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas while they were filming. During its four seasons, the show gained many fans and a place in pop culture. In fact, if you happen to be one of those big fans, apparently some of the original real G.L.O.W. women, like Jeanne Basone, aka "Hollywood," make themselves accessible to wrestling fans for a fee.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around.

(Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
