I'd like to make a program that automates simple tasks.

I don't know for sure as it will depend on what stuff we end up learning how to do. I would like to do some kind of game though!

I think I'd like to design something, whether it be fancy ASCII art or something with animation.

Oh I think animation would be really cool! Hopefully we will learn some stuff about that.

I took CSC 211 Fall 2014, but my nifty project was basically the owlRacing program, but better and more magical. I used dementors from Harry Potter and you had to cast a spell (click on them) as they moved across the screen to get rid of them!

Maybe we will do a game WITH animation... That would be so cool. I'm assuming the ideas will be up to us!

I'm thinking an animated interactive fairy tail. I think it could be both cool and fun.

Maybe making something move as a pixel picture? Or is it just the ImageMagic?

Another owl racing game with more "magic" would be pretty cool
