WutoWu #4:Computer Languages and Candy Bars

Hi Curtis! So only the first week of school is over even though it feels like I’ve been in school for months. (I could use another summer break right now). i quite enjoyed your last post. I also really liked the word you made up. “Dxpressing” (?) Is it depressing taken to the x power…
