Jess, don't give up.  Here are some valuable tips I've used in the past:

1) When your program doesn't compile, even after several attempts to get the syntax correct, get up and walk away from it for a few hours. You don't see the error because your mind is so wrapped up in the wrong direction and a little relief will go a long way in getting a new perspective.

2) Programming is (although they call it "Computer Science") an art; bet you couldn't play a musical instrument perfectly the first time or two neither.

3) There's a tremendous satisfaction in taking a concept and transforming it into a bit of software that performs as you desire. It's (in my opinion) the greatest form of creativity.
