The first week of classes has been a good opportunity for me to get prepared for all of my classes this school year. I finished moving into my new place this week, and we finally organized the new house. I really like my new room, mostly because I have a larger desk now, so there is room for 2 monitors. I really enjoyed looking at the capstone projects this week too. I didn’t realize there would be so many, so it was cool to look through real world applications of computer science and think about what I would be interested in. The two that really stood out to me were the NODE project, which seems like a really good way to help American and potentially wordwide democracy using CS, and the wine blockchain project, which seemed really interesting, especially because I don’t know a lot of the ways that CS is being integrated into different industries, especially the farming industry.
