Seven Random Facts About Dereck
1. My favorite number is seven.
Ironically enough, seven is my lucky number. Why? I’m not really sure LOL. I just feel like it resonates with what my brain finds attractive.
2. Turbulence = Crash Landing
The moment I start feeling a vibration, even the slightest, I start freaking out. I immediately start thinking, “Shit, I’m going to die.” I’m so paranoid that I read thousands of thousands of articles about turbulence. I’m a complete wreck when it comes to safety, LOL.
3. I LOVE tennis!
I’ve been playing for about 2 years now, but I found that it’s one of my passions (besides blogging of course :)!) Throughout my years growing up, tennis really stuck with me. Although, my other favorite sport would have to be soccer.
4. I LOVE buying laptops.
Yes, this is a bit weird and different. But, I absolutely love opening a fresh new laptop out of its box. The sleek, beautiful machine that comes out of the box fills me with excitement. Furthermore, booting up the laptop gets me hyped to see how the machine performs. The funny part is I don’t find excitement through using the computer, it’s just buying and opening it.
5. Christmas is my favorite holiday.
Saying Christmas is my favorite holiday seems a little cliché. But the reason I love Christmas is because of the hype, family gatherings, and the homemade food. I love watching commercials on Christmas deals because it puts me in the holiday shopping atmosphere. The family gatherings are amazing because the whole family is talking and laughing. Enjoying each other’s presence. Lastly, the homemade food is authentic. I typically have ponche (Christmas punch) and tamales.
6. I love traveling and talking to people.
This isn’t even a secret fact about me. I’ve always been in love with traveling. When I was younger, I pondered about what I would do if I was rich. It wasn’t luxurious cars or elegant mansions that came to mind, it was traveling and experiencing different and unique locations that can’t be recreated any other way. That’s the beauty about traveling. You have to be there in order to truly feel a wonderful atmosphere. Google Images can’t do that.
7. My next trip is to Nassau, Bahamas!
I’ll be traveling to Nassau during July 19 – July 26, come meet me there!
