I read all day, read all night, on programming... I do admit my advance in style and skills but is there a point when I feel confident...Know matter how much I learn I feel that I am still behind the ball. I dont know why I like to program but I find my self trying new ideas and things like " I wonder what will this do" type stuff. Is it mandatory that I have to learn various languages?? I honestly want to but is that going to confuse what I know now (I programm in c++)

It''s very good that you like to try new things out, that''s what helps you learn! If you''re not sure how something works and you want to know then make a test app tell help you out. It is not a requirement to learn multiple languages and if you feel that you might become confused by learning more than one, then I would stick to just one. I think it''s best to only take on another language when you feel you are ready.
