One of the things I was most concerned about before moving to The Bush was how Tyler and I were going to occupy our time. Obviously, there are no bookstores, no malls, no cafes, no restaurants, and no bars in Newhalen. We both have to find other ways to make fun!
A couple of months ago, Tyler decided to start researching how to build a computer. His ultimate goal is to use it for filmmaking. In September, he ordered all of the parts he’d need. This week, he finally received the last part (that took forever to arrive in the mail, as to be expected in rural Alaska). He built the entire computer in one evening and had it running perfectly! He’s had no prior experience with computers, by the way. He’s an English major. My abstract mind can’t even begin to understand how he did this. I can only regard the project with the utmost awe and respect. My husband is amazing!
