Default Moving on from Visual Basic, recommendations?

I'm in college and am taking a VB summer class. I'm also a computer science major and enjoy programming. It's a seems like a good career for my analytical personality mixed with my natural artistic talents. Although I am enjoying programming, VB is a little boring. I would prefer a to be able to do all the code from a terminal or and a GUI. Any programmers out there who know VB and an other language they prefer that I might also like.

if you doing vb, you could try getting into asp.net and write the background code in vb or c#. Very useful if your going to be getting into the job market in software devel anytime soon. .Net framework is pretty hot everywhere right now, when I was looking for a job a few months ago I'd say 75% (at least here in mn) wanted people with .net experience. Otherwise if you like to right console based apps you could learn c++. java is very similar to c++ also, if you leaned one or the other you'd be able to pick the one you didn't know up very well.
