My name is Zach Douglas. I am a freshman at NCSU. I am in the class of 2018 and will be majoring in computer engineering. Some people have asked me if I was double majoring in computer engineering and electrical engineering as well. This being said, I will consider doing so. I'm sure that it would benefit me in many different ways. I chose my major because I have gained an interest in computers and electronics in general. I like to fix things and enjoy learning how they work. I enjoy hardware and hands-on activities more than software-oriented activities. Sitting in front of a computer for extended periods of time may be appealing to some people, but it does not appeal to me too much. I would rather be learning how a machine works, or even trying to modify some of the components to make it perform better or even personalize it.

I am fortunate enough to be in a family who has enough vacation time and spare money for us to take a vacation more than once a year. I don't really know if I have a favorite vacation that I could pick out of all of them. In general I just like going to new places, mainly because I am seeing something completely new. I always like going to see my maternal cousins. They live in Omaha, Nebraska and not too long ago my grandparents moved up to be around them. We usually fly there and we always enjoy going places, and when we go there for July 4th we usually shoot off some fireworks. Going to my cousin's house is always fun.

If I had to pick between cats and dogs, I would pick dogs hands-down. There are several reasons why. In the first place, I have a fur allergy, so there is no possibility that I could have a cat in the first place. Because of this, my dog is hypoallergenic, so there is no fur shedding involved. Another reason that I prefer dogs is due to their unconditional love. My dog is always excited to see me when I come home and never snaps at me or tries to scratch me. My dog is humble and is loyal. These are just a few reasons that I prefer dogs over cats.
