Eight Facts about Thomas De Maesschalck

Well I kinda tagged myself yesterday over at Stephen Fung’s blog . He continued the “eight facts about” thingie which has been going all around the blogosphere in the past few weeks and instead of tagging/spamming eight people himself he invited visitors to tag themselves by leaving a comment.

This is how it works:

  • Each player must post these rules first.
  • Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

  • ONE: I never finished college. I studied applied economics for about six months but then I decided to drop out to further develop my business.

    TWO: I got my first PC when I was 6 or 7, it was a 386 with a small monochrome display. I don’t remember anymore how much RAM it had or how big the HDD was, perhaps 1-2MB RAM and a HDD with a capacity of about 100MB. I mainly used this computer to play games and I managed to really screw up the Windows 3.0 operating system a couple of times Later I received a color CRT display. It was really cool to finally see all my games in color

    THREE: I really like pizza and all sorts of pastas.

    FOUR: Fortunately I’ve never been seriously ill, never broke anything and have never been involved in any serious accidents.

    FIVE: I can speak four languages: Dutch, English, German and French.

    SIX: I started writing a thriller when I was 11 but never got really far. I think I only wrote about five pages before I ran out of inspiration.

    SEVEN: I still don’t have my driver’s license. This is something I’m going to work on this year.

    EIGHT: I’ve never been outside Europe. The only countries I’ve ever been to are: The Netherlands, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Greece (actually a Greek island: Corfu).

    I’m going to use the same approach as Stephen. This time I’m not going to tag people but allow you to tag yourself. So if you would like to be tagged just leave a comment and I’ll add your blog I tag:

  • Glen Allsopp

    1. I found your site via John Chow top commentators.

      I find it quite weird that you stopped TEW (at KULeuven probably?) to go into your business full time, while at the same time you have quite a hard time to exactly say what that business is (about page).

      I understand you want to see money (I also can’t wait to finish TEW and start earning full time), but it’s not like TEW is difficult. And it’s a good foundation for your business knowledge too.

    2. Thanks for participating, it’s always nice to find out a little more about the people you communicate with online.

    3. This remembers me that I should update the About Me page soon. I put that text there because I’m doing quite a lot of different things, basically anything that can make me money ranging from updating content sites and writing reviews to selling sites/domains, affiliate marketing and PPC arbitrage.

      I studied TEW at UGent, the difficulty wasn’t really the problem – it just occupied too much of my time. I had a bad train connection and my total commute time was about 2 hours a day. It was kinda crazy, the first semester I was only back home at 8 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday if I attended all sessions.
