    Am i stupid?

    I find sometimes i code things and when i go over it at a later date, its almost like i have to start all over again. Does anyone esle get this or is it just me? I recently started coding in C and its just like "God i just did this, how come i can't do it by rote now?" Anyway, i just find it annoying and I was wondering if anyone had similiar situations?

    it gets to a point where actually writing the code and worrying about syntax becomes trivial because it'll be just like speaking a native language or something. solving the problem becomes paramount. until then you just need enough practice programming to get good enough with it.

    yes

    more seriously, it used to be like that to me too, until I got a better understanding of the language... now it's pretty simple and straightforward...

    well, I used to be like that, mainly the reason I skipped projects is that I did not have a firm grounding in the language and therefore would become totally stumped, or like you, would come back to not understand anything(now I have not programmed in opengl for a couple months due to testtaking etc., but I still remember how to code alot of the stuff). It now comes more natural to me after I have been reading lots of resources on C++.
