What to do after CSA?

What do all you computer science people do after CSA? Obviously if you took the class you know java fairly well and programming fundamentals, but what is the next step? Since I took the class last year I am going to review my java basics and stuff like recursion before diving back into programming. I really love programming but had to devote a lot of my time to AP Physics this year. I am in an independent comp sci study (did mostly physics hw because it is a blow off class) and can make whatever I want for the class in whatever language I want. Someone please hmu with a project suggestion that is doable and yet fulfilling. I am fairly good at navigating stackoverflow and finding what I want so they can be a little daunting. Thank you!

So is mono game like a c# package? I’ve never used c# but shouldn’t be hard to learn the syntax

You’re not wrong but it isn’t gonna get me anything special in terms of credit and I already secured the bag on comp sci A so I’d rather take a useful algorithms and data structures course from a college next year. School just approved my independent study recommendation so it’s lit lol.
