    Out of ideas

    I took a little month long break from programming mainly because I ran out of ideas of what to program. Could anyone give me any suggestions of some programs I could write? Usually I try to remember what I learned in math and try to make a program out of that but we haven't learned anything in a long time. I still don't really know any graphics APIs though. (That's what I need to learn next...)

    I'm sure you still have some C++ to learn. Just read tutorials and try to apply what they teach you. Then write something to try to tie every single concept you've learned together.

    A text RPG is usually good for that. It'll allow you to implement all of your learnings into a project.

    Just google "programming contest"
    Lots of sites with lots of interesting problems.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
