Life after PC build

I recently built myself a PC for the first time since the 1990s and really enjoyed it. What fulfilling hobby can I grow from this?

When I was a teenager in the 1990s, I used to love building and tinkering with PCs. Then I went off to Uni, and other interests took over. I hadn't really touched anything other than laptops until a few months ago, when I took a chance and built my own PC
for gaming, using the build-a-pc subreddit
and the various helpful sites they link to.
I really, really enjoyed it and I'd love to get a hobby out of this - something about putting together a load of technical kit myself and then seeing it all lit up and working. But what should I do? Electronics? Programming? Is there some sort of advanced pc-building I can do?? I have absolutely no idea what to do next!
Has anyone got any ideas?
