Computers have come a really long way since they were first invented. When I think back to the first time I ever had a computer in my possession, it a really long time ago. The first time that I have ever seen a computer was when I was about 5 or 7 years old and I was still living in a basement with my family. My father had spent a lot of money on this big box that he brought home once with the help of a friend. It was really cool because it was something I have never seen before. What is interesting is I didn’t know that I was going to be working with computers in my career in the future!
When our parents where decided on buying a new property, our real estate agent made a suggestion about getting a computer. After talking about it for a few days, my parents decided to buy a computer. it didn’t really do much. It was running windows 98 and I had no idea how to use it. In fact, I was not even allowed to use it because it was such an expensive piece of equipment that children shouldn’t be using it. After a couple years, our parents realized it might be beneficial for us to learn about how to use computers and how to type. This is a very important part of my life in history because this is where I became obsessed. Our parents would let us play this typing game where letters would fall down on the screen to a city and you had to save the city by typing the letters! This was so fun and so intriguing to me because it was so fast paced and I loved every single thing about it!
Sooner or later I became a guru. I knew how to type at such a young age and I loved it. I learned how to navigate through the operating system and learned how to do many things with it! I was no programming genius but I learned the basics of operating the computer. This was the beginning of an era for me. Once we got the internet, it was amazing. I could check out websites and look at images, look at news and so much more. One of the big things for me growing up was games! That was amazing because I could just play endlessly with other people online! I couldn’t believe that I could be playing with someone across the world at the time.
One of the games that I grew up on was Rose Online. That was an amazing game because it was my first experience on the RPG type of game. I got so obsessed and played everyday when I was a child. Playing with people online was such an experience. It was cool because you could pretend to be anybody you wanted and no one would ever know! I believe that if I didn’t play games on the computer, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I love working with computers and I think it’s such an amazing invention. I eventually learned how to build my own computer!
