Thank you to Tanner Funk for being a reliable, direct, and honest friend.
My favorite Christmas gift was in my early teens when my parents helped me buy the parts for my first custom PC. I was about 14, and I was intensely interested in how electronics worked. I had researched for months on end the process of building a custom computer and, with my parents help, I finally had enough money to get all the parts together. They got me about half the parts I needed for Christmas that year and I immediately set to work. The first PC build did not go smoothly, as it took me over a week to get it to finally turn on. However, it sparked a lifelong hobby in the art of PC building. It is now a staple amongst my dearest friends to have a custom PC built by me, or a laptop which I have fixed or upgraded. Perhaps being best friend tech support seems tedious to some, but to me it is a way of showing I care. It is a hobby I never would have broken into were it not for that one Christmas morning.
