Beginner (I assume?) Question: How do I make words appear onscreen

Hey guys, I’m trying to make text appear in a sketch when I touch ‘X’ value on my MPR121 TouchBoard. The problem is I’m not very familiar with Processing, so I was wondering how I might go about this. I feel like most of the “beginner” stuff I’ve looked at on YouTube isn’t… explaining basic concepts. I specifically really only need to make words render for this project. How best (and let’s be honest: easiest) might I go about this? This is the complete reference of all processing functions and even has tutorials on the site, for help with text specifically look here

Did you get this working?

Have you already set up the touchboard with a serial sketch from a tutorial? eg using

After that is set up and you are sending messages to your sketch, the sketch can react by doing something.

void draw(){
    text("hello", 20, 20);
