Before 2000 my main hobbies were video games and watching TV. ~2002 I started learning graphic design, basic coding and web design. ~2003 I started to learn about computers in terms of their general configuration and their parts and this stayed a big thing for me through around 2009 around 2010 I started to learn about higher educational institutions and various "corporate" careers and obsessed over that. around 2013 I started digging into CS, statistics, etc. for a short period in 2015 I was obsessed with learning about how to do well on standardized exams. 2016 was spent obsessing about admissions into elite MBA programs. 2017 so far has been concerned with newer computer parts and CPU microarchitecture design.
