Why I'm studying COMPSCI 111/111G

My passion for computer science began at a very early age, my older brother had recently purchased Age of Empires and I was hooked immediately. I've been gaming ever since. Some noticeable titles being the Elder Scrolls, Rachet and Clank and Grand Theft Auto. While this did not do a lot to expand my knowledge of the technical side of things, that began last year when I started stripping and building PCs. I fell in love with how the systems worked and how the individual components connected with each other. On top of that I'm incredibly introverted and prefer to spend my time behind a monitor rather that being social.

What I hope to gain from studying computer science at UOA

Once my studies have concluded, my plan is to find a career working in IT which has been my dream for a while now. I've been practicing Python in my spare time and I also study COMPSCI 101. My plan is eventually freelance as a software engineer allowing for more freedom in my life and the flexibility to live without the restrictions of a 9/5.

My Dream PC build! By the time I can afford to build this what's cutting edge will have changed but nonetheless,

using an old vanilla coloured chassis for a sleeper build with: -RTX 3090 x2 (SL link) -DDR4 64 GB RAM -Intel i9 11th gen -custom watercooling loop -2TB SSD (x2) -8TB HDD (x4)
