Oh nostalgia! The first computer that was mine to use was a Tandy 1000. I moved to the United States to live permanently when I was in the sixth grade and my father decided to go into the Radio Shack (one of my favorite stores) in the Puente Hill Mall and buy me a personal desktop computer.

Along with the big ass computer with two floppy disk drives, I also got a very noisy dot matrix printer that required special paper. I wrote a lot of documents, played a lot of text-based games, and generally spent a lot of time by myself in front of that computer. It’s amazing to look at the specs on that thing and see how far things have progressed.
