The Best/Worst day of my life                                                                                                2/5/16

         The best day of my life was finally getting a gaming PC for christmas. I had played many consoles, from the Gamecube to the Xbox One, but computers always intrigued me. Game companies like Steam and Origin had many games, some exclusive to computers. It was then that I started to research the right computer. At first, I was looking into getting a Cyberpower, but I then watched videos of people using an Alienware Alpha. I began to read about the alpha, most reviews said that it is powerful enough to compete against consoles, seeing as it only has an HDMI port. (HDMI is used on flatscreen TVs) I originally had a PC, but it was more of a work computer than anything else. It would only run games on very low to minimum quality. Just getting the PC made me realize that you cant always have nice things, and sometimes you have to use what you currently own in order to have fun. The game PC was a huge step up from a regular PC. It is able to run many games without any strain put on it, and it could hold just as many games as an Xbox One. I felt like I had missed out on a whole new world of gaming by playing games with only consoles. I also learned that computers are complicated. Adding anything to the alpha was easy. But Putting it back together was difficult. Not all of my day was playing on my PC however, as my best friend Lynn came over to hang out. Lynn was, and still is, my best friend. We have known each other since the 1st grade and have always been there for each other. I had realized something else, friends will always be there for you.

My name is Lucas Papania, I was born in Chicago, Illinois on Sep. 13th, 2002. My life is pretty average, except for my laziness problem. My family consists of me, my Mother, my Father, My 3 cats, 2 dogs, and a countless amount of uncles, cousins, aunts, Etc. I´m an avid fan of military history, mainly the world wars. I´m also a very competative video game fanatic. I hope to become a technological engineer, a game designer, or an aircraft engineer. I am known to be a very loud speaker, which is both my gift and my curse. I have a very abnormal talent of figuring out most things with just one lesson, or by watching one demonstration. I´m not the biggest fan of school, but I don´t hate it. My main interest is with technology, I recently got my first computer. I´m not the most athletic person in school. Math is my favorite subject, English is my least favorite. I´m not the best writer, I can come up with ideas for almost any story, but I don´t like to write.
