My self-summary
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 pick up.

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 laugh.

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 it.

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
I graduated high school in 2010. After that I enrolled at a community college.

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 puzzle.
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 said, changes.
I’m really good at
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 someone).

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 me crazy.
The first things people usually notice about me
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 you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh jeez.
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 in theatres.
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 intelligent argument.
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 before!

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 bonus!!
The six things I could never do without
Only six... Hmmm

Dinky (My pet chihuahua!... I didn't name her!)
Cell phone
My computer
You! ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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 argument.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well seeing as I just moved here, my Fridays are pretty free. Hit me up! :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm. I have a birth mark on my butt. ;)
You should message me if
If you are looking for someone to casually talk to, a friend, or even something more than that.
And especially If you happened to have read all of that. Wow!
