That feeling is what you need to be a programmer. I can tell you, after 30 years of programming, it never left me. As long as you follow your passion(s) and are not trapped with job requirements/clients you don't like but are forced to work on. Then its pure work.
That feeling is the most importsnt requirement. After that, you only need time (a fun time!). No degrees, no fancy hardware, no big companies.

That's exactly what I want! To not feel like I'm doing something that I'm forced to work on but actually enjoy. And I think I found it in programming. What I'm learning is getting very exciting!
