Build Your Own PC

For years now I’ve had it in the back of my mind to build my own PC. I have two degrees in Computer Science and have worked as a web/software developer for nearly a decade.

And I don’t really care to learn (obvs, or I would have by now). So even though I’ve always wanted to do it, the thought of putting in the work to learn what I needed to know to get the right parts and to be able to assemble it without breaking anything…I just never got around to doing any of that. lolol

I am very glad he was there to hold my hand through this whole process. And I’m super excited to have a computer again – and a legit one this time. I feel so accomplished. lolol Plus it’s got a clear side panel and we got LED fans, so there are lights. I’m just so dang cool now.

I’m pretty excited to (re?)enter the gaming world. I’ve played PS games off and on over the years, but the only PC gaming I’ve ever really done is waste about 6 years of my life playing The Sims. Which…

As you can see from my current Steam activity, I’m really expanding my horizons these days. Speaking of…back to The Sims now, byyyyye!
