Parkhouse, I am the same way. I forget stuff like no tomorrow. What I find that helps is going to codepen and working with things. I also just went back and watched the css floats again cause I always forget the clearifx. Cant remember it to save my life. I also will look at websites and try to duplicate it or just look at code to see how they did it and make sure I understand it. You are not alone my friend!!!

Yes, You will remember more and more as you write your css. You can always google what you are trying to do. There are a lot of resources on the net to find what you are trying to do. Just learn the basics first, the rest will fall in place.

And doing be afraid of having to look stuff up all the time. The more you practice the less of that you'll have to do but designers and developers look things up often so it's not uncommon and not a sign of weakness that you do it. :)
