I love software developement and would love to learn more about programming and command-line interfaces. I started programming in my first computer science class in high school and loved it ever since. I am now taking INFO 300 and FIRE 311 this Summer working towards my Bachelor's Degree in Information Systems at VCU. I love this major and all of the things I am learning in my classes! :) I have taken a class based on unix command lines before and I learned a lot! I virtualized my laptop prior to it breaking in 2016 and ran 3 different operating systems. It had WIndows 7, Linux Mint, and Linux Ubuntu and out of the 3 I liked Ubuntu best. Linux Ubuntu was very responsive, easy to update and upgrad via sudo commands, easy to customize, and aesthetically pleasing for an OS. I did not like Mint as much as Ubuntu but I liked it better than default Windows 7 as it appeared to use less system resources to run. I previously had my CompTIA A+ certification and I got it in high school back in my senior year which was 2015. Since then, I did not have the funds to re-test for it and re-certify but I did have it at one point and still have my wallet-sized card from CompTIA. I made a video game at John Tyler as one of my programming projects and it was very fun to learn overriding, class structure, and inheritence within classes, methods, and files. It's a text-based game and plays until the user loses or the user quits the application.
I just got done reading The Zookeeper's Wife and found it to be a great read! It was about Poland before, during, and after WWII. It followed a family that owned Poland's central zoo in Warsaw. Antonina Zibinska, the main character in the book, helped save more than 300 people of Jewish descent in WWII. At the same time, many of the Jewish people being saved helped save and care for the animals of the zoo. The moral I got out of the story is to help as many people as you can and implement tikkun olam which is Hebrew for repairing the world. I very much enjoyed the book and would suggest to anyone who enjoys history.
Soccer is a very fun sport both to watch and to play! FCB, or Futball Club Barcelona, is my favorite team! In the world cup I support all the countries of my nationalities but I especially like Italy, Poland, and the US! Playing soccer is great exercise as you run to get cardio and it is objective based in terms of getting a goal and defending your own goal. It is a great way to learn cooperative and leadership skills as well! There are many famous players on FCB but the most notable is Lionel Messi. He is a great player and plays as a forward. Gerard Pique, a defender, is married to Shakira and helps the team in many ways. Neymar Jr. used to play for FCB but transferred to Paris Saint-Germain but is highly considering playing for Barcelona again in the near future.
