Ok, let's tackle this monster …
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
