I would like to have peoples opinions on this.........
As I am going through my Java course , I ask/feel as I should be able to remember how to write this (game) program for example from scratch. No videos,No Instructors,No asking for help in the forum. Because I begin to imagine a boss saying " OK chris i need you to write me a hangman program ASAP". And this kind of thought puts me kind of down, like maybe I am not where I should be or Mannn i should be able to write this game easilyyy by now. What do you guys think ?
From my point of view, everything will get cleared in time. For example I was little confused about this Hangman program, then I went out to other courses, tried new things, practiced... and today I came to Treehouse again and I understood EVERYTHING in this videos. So I repeat, everything will be cleared in time and you will be able to understand everything. When I look at old stuff that I could not understand earlier I laugh because over time and after practice everything got cleared. Just don't loose motivation and focus. :) Hop it helps, good luck! ;)

I've been feeling the same way, going through several courses repeating things, reading articles and books, and the only reassuring thing is that if you look at your code, now you can read it and see where it's going, from all the professionals I've chatted with they all say just keep at it, and you'll get better and better. I think the most important thing is to just understand what we're doing when and why, not really remembering how to build a hangman specific app.
