Computer Hobby


A Hobby That I Enjoy My favorite past time is to spend time
at the computer, even at a tender age I like computer
systems. To having a computer was a dream, an almost
impossible dream. I had a friend named George at that time,
we were in the same school, same grade and we had a very
good relationship. At that time he had a computer system
and we spend our free time playing games, printing greeting
cards, banners, we also did our school home work. It was
very nice and playful even then I yearned to own my own
computer, so I could spend more time learning how to use
the computer. But I liked to have my own computer so I can
do my own printings and spend more time learning how to use
the computer. One day my parents went for a trip without me
because I was in school at that time; so I stay with my
grandmother for about five days until my parents got back
from their trip. When my folks return home they arrived
with a big box with no labels or printings on the outside
of the box.
My parents always knew that I wanted a computer. I didn't
know what was inside of the big brown box until the next
day when I saw the computer on my homework table. It was
the best day of my life, for that day my dream became
reality. It was use but in good shape conditions and
working. Now my favorite hobby is computers systems and
instead of having a use computer, I have the latest
computer and I like to spend a lot time making graphics
programs, configuring systems in my new Pentium II 450mhz
processor, and playing with my small network system that I
have at home. I also like to alter pictures for example
take one girl face out and put in another girl or man face
that no one would tell that particular picture was altered.
I like to write my essays on my computer because I have
more fun, my mind is more relaxed and I thing better as
oppose to writing with pen. At least it works for me. I'm
gland my parents bought me the use computer then because
now I know how to use it very well and it will be inside of
me for the rest of my life which will help me a lot in the
future. Who knows what would have happen if I didn't get
the use computer when I was fourteen years old.
Computers is more than a hobby considering my work and
major are Data Processing. Working for Kingsborough
Community College in Academic Computing Department as a
supervisor for evening classes. My job consists of taking
care of the computer labs during the night and sees if all
the classes are where they are suppose to be. For example,
at night we have two Departments that use the computer
facilities; one is Academic Computing Department, which has
more rights and privileges to use the computer labs then
Coutinuing Education Department. This Department sometimes
gives me a hard time because they want to use the rooms,
which are assigned to Academic Department. Also I have to
check on my staff who works in the labs as a student Aids.
Their work consists of helping students with software and
hardware problems only; they not suppose to help students
do their homework at all. However if they desire to do so
they could.
I am gland that I have chosen computers because I think the
next millennium will be based on computers. I believe that
in the future computers will became a part of everyday
life, in schools, jobs, and even in leisure activities. In
order to complete or stay abreast with peers computer
knowledge will be mandatory. The explosive growth of PCs,
workstations, LANs, WANs, fiber optics, wireless
communications, and software may be completing the new
office. This means that computers are at the vanguard of an
economic revolution, and it will have dramatic great
economic effects by 2003 because of the rapid
One day I was watching a television program about the high
increase of computers in the last few years and they said
that for the year 2001 every one in the word will have at
least one use computer per family. For me having a hobby is
very important it is not only interesting but it opens
doors now and in the future. My hobby has lead to a
promising career in a fast growing, high demanding and very
rewarding field.
