I'm looking for something both special and kind of arbitrary.

If you agree, it follows O and precedes La.

Perhaps soon it will find me here.

But by then I'll have ten.

I think you are looking for

K

I'm looking for something both special and kind of arbitrary.

Special K. K as a letter on its own may be seen as arbitrary.

If you agree, it follows O and precedes La.

OK So - signifies agreement. So precedes La in musical solfège.

Perhaps soon it will find me here.

Your are almost at 10,000 rep points which will be written as 10K

But by then I'll have ten.

10,000 = 10K

Sidenote

Congratulations!

    $\begingroup$ Following O and preceding La could also be Oklahoma - also a stretch, but doesn't require an extra word to make sense $\endgroup$ – CodeMoose Sep 6 '18 at 20:58
