You see, I want to become more familiar with the programming language and I want to be able to do things that I'm unable to do. I've seen people who have been here for a shorter time than I have and have achieved a greater programming skill than I have. Some would say, Read the Guide and then I would say, it's too long and it doesn't tell you how to do things you need to do. It just gives you the tools you need to construct. It doesn't give me the instructions.
Some would say "Try making a game", and I'd reply back "With what ideas?" Surely when you're going to make a game, whether it's small or large, you're going to need ideas.
Side Question: If you're a programmer, how did you start? And how did you come to your current height?
Maybe I'm just being foolish in not doing one of the two options. Either way, please enlighten me! :)
