Hello Kaylee! I know the struggle! What has helped me is by practicing, practicing, practicing. Watching tutorials is a great way to help, but I suggest writing code over and over. Even if you don't know what to do, you'll get better at researching and finding the right answers.

Hello Charles :). Yeah I started styling with CSS but I am noticing answers I find bu google dont work quite often and I will spend like 10 minutes feeling lost endlessly googling haha, but it is fun. I had to purge my computer from windows the specs weren't enough to run windows well so I am running linux mint and it works well so I can start practicing. I was excited to start doing a lot of projects but I couldn't find a site that has more than just a general outline of the goal of the project, I tried to find guided projects with the answers to just practice writing it and seeing how it works but I didn't have good luck in that, do you know any like that?

Absolutely, if you haven't checked out Codepen I would start there! One way that has worked for me is "demystifying" what goes into someone's project. Codepen will allow you to not only see projects people are working on, but the code they used to do so, in an easy-to-read format that you can even edit online.

Plus, at some point when you make your own "Pens", you can embed them in your site/portfolio to show them off!
