Dear Reader, Two days ago (Thurs, Dec 17, 2020) I turned in the last final of my undergraduate bachelors degree in Computer Science. When I clicked the submit button, I sat for a moment puzzled as to what came next. I spent a few minutes reviewing the rest of my classes just to make sure I wasn’t missing something. When I had thoroughly convinced myself I was done I sat there alone....
