Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn--and the best way to learn is to do. At the end of the day, being a competent programmar isn't about how many hackathons you win or how many novel ideas you can come up with--it's about execution, attention to detail, and relentless dedication and passion for building and breaking.
If you ever feel self-conscious about your code, I'll allow a laugh at my expense.
