Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, my name is Derek.
I was born and raised in Muskegon MI, by loving parents. I moved
here to Tallahassee almost a year ago and still feeling like the
newbie. Now I work for FSU at the IT Service desk. If you got a
tech problem on campus and you call for help I'm usually the one to
I had the same group of friends since elementary. You don't see
that too often anymore. So moving away from those friends was
difficult. I'm still trying to get out and meet new people, but
change isn't easy. Not for me at least.
Some kids couldn't wait to get out of high school. I was
indifferent. I loved seeing my friends everyday, and classes were
easy. I miss the simplicity.
I'm more mature than you'd expect, but I haven't given up on my
inner child. You have to have fun. And I love making people
I like to play video games with friends. Halo, call of duty, and
LoL to name a few.
I also love watching movies. If its well known I've probably seen
Hmm sports. I love playing and watching sports. I play beach
volleyball, soccer, and football with friends occasionally. I love
watching football too. But the only sport I played legitly was
baseball for about 6-7 years.
That's just a few spurts of info for you. If you want to know more,
go ahead and message me. I'm always with my phone!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated high school in 2010. After that I enrolled at a
Back home, I was a server for two years and I wouldn't mind doing
it again down here. But, my real goal is to stay going to college
asap! I don't want to be one of those people who take a break and
never go back.
What I was going for, is another question entirely. That tends to
change from time to time. The most common is math teaching. I
always had an interest in it. I think of math as a giant
I also wanted to be an architectural engineer. I had a thing for
art in high school too.
Even joining the armed forces has crossed my mind. Yeah, like I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not a cocky person, but there are a few things that I can say I
am pretty damn good at.
I'm pretty decent at math, procrastination, whistling, strip poker,
and dancing (even though that's rare for me to do in front of
Video games are another. But for obvious reasons I don't tend to
boast about those.
I'm also pretty good at figuring out other movies that actors have
played in. If I can't figure out where someone is from, it drives

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm. First thing?
I guess i'm the type of person who's pretty open when you first
meet. I'm not the shy guy who doesn't want to open up. If you want
to know something ask me, i'm not afraid to tell you about myself.
As long as your not afraid to have some questions thrown back at

I have read a total of like 4 books that I wasn't forced to read in
school. Harry potter 5, 6, and 7. After the goblet of fire came out
The fourth I read was one of the halo novels. I haven't gotten
around to reading the others, but I liked it.
That's a hard choice. My favorites are the ones that leave you
speechless. Or ones that make you think. Anything that can spark an
I also have a thing for super hero movies. No I don't read comics.
But the info I know about a super hero comes from movies or games.
Avengers was amazing! Also I like anything in 3D animation. You can
never go wrong with Pixar! I'll admit I've cried at a couple movies
I actually watch a lot of TV shows. My favorite is by far Game of
Thrones. The writer is amazing. Spartacus, White Collar, Big Bang
Theory, Two and a Half Men, House, etc. I watch so many...
That is probably the biggest range of them all. I enjoy anything
but rap and country. I also don't like screaming (some of its
okay). I went to an emerosa and I See Stars show a couple years ago
so I don't completely hate it. Mayday Parade, All Time Low, Forever
the Sickest kids, and You Me and Everyone We Know, are all great.
If Bruno Mars and Katy Perry had a kid, it would be born with a
golden voice box. And also, anything on a hit station that I can
rock out to and sing in my car!
You will never see this guy becoming a vegetarian. I love Chinese
and sea food, especially shrimp! Mmmmm. My parents are great cooks
and I love it! If your a girl that can cook, that's an added
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Only six... Hmmm
Dinky (My pet chihuahua!... I didn't name her!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think all the time about everything. I over think things all the
time. My sleep schedule is beyond screwed because I can't fall
asleep unless I am beat tired. I would just lye there thinking all
night. About random stuff.
Maybe thinking about some made up stars wars characters battling it
out in an awesome fight scene in my head. Or like the random made
up math problem I came up with last night.
Sometimes I think of deep things to myself. But I try as hard as I
can not to, because they will go on and on. Plus they are way
better to talk to with other people. Anything for an intelligent
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well seeing as I just moved here, my Fridays are pretty free. Hit
me up! :)

Hmm. I have a birth mark on my butt. ;)
