Hi. I've decided that it's high time I bothered to write up a little biography for myself. So, here goes. My name is Derek, and I'm currently sixteen years old. I am a junior in high school. I enjoy singing, playing on the computer, listening to music, listening to books on tape, boating, swimming, and other activities. As you can see from my interests, I am also interested in language and linguistics. I don't claim to know much about these topics, but I may sometimes mention things that pertain to those subjects. Actually, this has only happened once that I can remember, and that was when I was using another blogging tool. But I thought I'd put you on your guard. Anyway, I think that's all for now. I may see fit to expand this biography a bit, but for right now, it's finished. So bye.
