We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you.Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it.*225 words or fewerBuilding my computer introduced me to the repeated cycle of trials, failures, andtweaks. I was never satisfied with my computer’s performance. Despite never needingsuch an amount of computing power, I always craved to push out every last drop ofperformance my computer had to offer. I was captivated to see the benchmark scorecreeping up bit by bit as I increased the power, sped up the clocks, and cranked up thefans. I developed a passion for the process: the continuous recording of data,calculations, and improvement of something to the best it can be.It certainly fueled my addiction to video games, more in-depth, my addiction tothe complicated inner workings of video games. Despite being overlooked, thecomprehensive math and logic behind damage calculation, defense, and magic powersis nothing short of an engineering marvel. Instead of playing, I spent countless hoursfiguring out the mathematical limits of video games. What is the maximum damage youcan deal with a single blow? What is the highest defense you can have? While none ofthese made me any better at math or the video game itself, they gave me a sense ofaccomplishment in finding the limits. To me, that was more rewarding than playing thegame. I enjoyed that process, the "pretend math" instead of calculus, and I cherish it.
