My First Computer

I’ll never forget very first computer, a Laser 128ex, better known as an Apple IIe clone. I was eight, my grandpa passed away and left my dad a very little amount of money, less thank $2k. My dad used it all so we could have a computer, but he really did it for me.

Landed a $150k Job, and I'm 24.
