As a beginner programmer, reading code makes my eyes glaze over.

I need to focus on *each* *single* *line* of code and even then it makes no sense to me.

I have to see what it references and then come back and then build a model of what is happening in my head.

All of which makes it slow going.

Just need to keep at it
