14. New directions for our moving circle

We introduce the strokeWeight() function to change the width of the lines we draw. If we don't use strokeWeight(), the lines are very thin.
We also review some basic animation. Then (after minute 4:30) we find out how to move our circle not only from left to right, but in another directions, by making the X and Y values larger or smaller.
