I feel a bit lost :(

I felt like I was on track with HTML. CSS; I had to start watching other tutorials online, I read articles, and practiced on my own before I felt like I was grasping the concept. (Still got a lot of work to do there) Actually, I didnt log into treehouse for a whole week. Javascript; I have no idea whats going on. I under stand we're making the website interactive but I feel like Ive missed sone important steps. COMPLETE BEGINNER.
Do I stop the tutorial? Do I just continue and hope that it all clicks into place somewhere down the line? Very frustrated now :(

I've been a member of Treehouse since January (minus four months of pauses) and I've never even come across this course. It looks like it's a course for those who already covered all the basics from HTML/CSS/JS. May I ask which track you're enrolled in?

Many courses are not part of any track, including the MASH series. These are novice-level courses that provide a fun introduction to the concepts covered in more detail in other courses.

What you are going through is not at all uncommon. You might benefit from some of the answers in this post titled The Wall, and you may also enjoy this episode of The Treehouse Show that features it.

There is also a bonus series on How To Learn that you may find helpful.
