Why I Love Computer Science: My love of computer science parallels my love of art and painting. There before me, I have a blank canvas from which amazing and beautiful creations can burst from. It's the lengthy work, detail, and occurrences of frustration that make the end result so satisfying, and it's an even better feeling to think that another person is using this creation that could help make their life better or easier. There is personal happiness that comes with creation, but the happiness and benefit that can be provided for other people really makes me love computer science.
