Variables were the one thing I would get hung up on when I started out. I still get hung up at times deciding what a variable name should be called when thinking about its long term viability.

think of the writing process, think of the code you write as a first draft. you never submit a first draft. you many times completely rewrite a first draft. in programming you tend to solve a problem. thats the first draft.
