Don't worry about it. The difference between a beginner and an expert is *not*
that experts make fewer mistakes, but that experts know how to fix those
mistakes so quickly that they don't even notice them.
I know people who are seemingly incapable of typing more than three words in
the row without two typos, but they manage to be excellent programmers. They'll
typo some code:
comptuer_number = number.radnint(1, 100)
try to run it, realise their mistake and fix it:
comptuer_number = random.radnint(1, 100)
then run it again and realise there is at least one more mistake, and fix it:
comptuer_number = random.randint(1, 100)
and then a third time:
computer_number = random.randint(1, 100)
while a beginner is still puzzling over their first mistake. Don't stress about
it, it is all just part of the learning process. All code starts off full of
"Ever since I learned about confirmation bias, I've been seeing it everywhere."
