    Hi! So, i want to learn how to code. And, since im a beginner, i decided to start with Python. But, im having quite a bit of difficulty. i looked up things for beginners to try and do, and was immediately overwhelmed. i know some basics due to having some tech-y friends in the past, like typing certain things. but, not much. i know like... print "Hello, world!" and ive been trying a few exercises from www.learnpython.org and i have been completing them easily, but still find it very confusing. like, i understand how to type something, but when it comes to "Play rock paper scissors with the computer" (an actual one i tried to do) i failed miserably. i almost think i 5 year old could have a better attempt. So, for anyone that knows this, any advice or videos or tutorials or ANYTHING would be helpful! Links, programs (like, interpreters or code editors/text editors that are free and easy to use) would be useful And, advice or descriptions, videos, definitions, anything really. i want to learn all i can, to hopefully become good at this. And, what kind of things can you do with coding? i know you can make games, websites, etc. but is there anything you can do besides the obvious? Sorry for this being so long! If i have it in the wrong spot, please tell me! Thank you for reading all of this, and your replies would be very helpful :) Thank you!
