I have been learning the Python language for the last few weeks, and still trying to “get into it”. I am at the Control Flow section after finishing the Functions Courses (the latter parts truly confused me and kinda demotivated me to continue) which I am about to start this afternoon with. Honestly, I am finding it difficult to continue because I am genuinely finding this challenging; it might be because I don’t know what I truly want from this program (Learning on the side or an alternative career), or maybe it is because I do not have a goal to work towards. I have no idea what my end game is, and how to apply this for a personal project.
My general sway of thought would be to create a simple mobile game (like flappy bird for example) - something tangible and something I can be proud of. I don’t even know if Python is the right for this line of thinking. As an extension to a mobile game I would like to branch out into iPhone App Development.
The other demotivating aspect is what I mentioned before that I am finding it challenging to remember all the rules, or to read the theory and practice the exercise. I have this odd thought in my mind that everyone is able to understand functions (or anything really) first try, and that I am the only one who does not understand certain aspects, and then gets frustrated and too annoyed to watch YouTube clips to get a better understanding of the topic.
