What would you like to do?
// `this` is an anchor DOM element in this context
// but it's not wrapped in a jQuery wrapper and doesn't
// have access to any of jQuery's helper methods.
var $a = $(this);
// once you wrap it in jQuery, it has access to them,
// for example to `.attr()`, `.prop()`, `.val()`, etc.
console.log('Clicked on', $a.attr('href'));
