Starting my first project

Okay so i kinda finished the Learning section, though i did skip with sensors and stuff like this because i dont have them. So im thinking about making my first project? I can think of projects but the only problem is of course the programming so what do you suggest, copying code from internet or trying to make something myself?

Every time I would recommend trying to write your own code. There are far too many people just copying code from the internet with out a clue as to what it does or how it does it. The only way to learn is to do it your self.

Well the problem is i probably couldnt write the code myself because im a beginner but if i would know i would actually.

When I first began Arduino, I use example codes, but I always modify them to my liking. Now, I know much more programming.
