Mostly School work, a lot of online homework for my electrical engineering courses. On rare occasions I work from home (taking chats, calls, emails) for my techsupport job at my school. Much prefer my pc for work with the nicer keyboard and especially the extra ram. The ticketing system we use has a problem where it just slowly consumes ram so at work where the desktop only has 8gb of memory I have to close the ticketing system and open it again to free up memory. At home I have 32gb so I can work uninterrupted for the most part. I'd like to get back into 3D modelling but haven't set aside the time to do so yet
