No, that's completely normal. Before I learned Python,
I was using TI-83 calculator basic. It is the most
imperitive programming language short of assembly.
When I learned Python, I really hated that you
couldn't use the GOTO command, and I was mistified at
the for loops. It took me a while to learn the
programming style of Python, but now I can write
semi-useful, object-oriented programs.
