Growing up I casually enjoyed a few video games. Other than that I wasn't a lover of any form of computers at all.
I didn't have many career goals but I knew the only thing I didn't want was to work with computers. Then while getting into a business degree I ran out of elective options one year, so I took an intro to computer science class - oops.
The next semester I was a computer science student. I've been in school for 8 years now because of changing degrees. It's worth it. I love this stuff.
