I know the feeling... take a break, walk away, and go at it again when you're less frustrated!

Looks really nice. Really good for a 15 year old. Your first **** always looks like, well, ****. The more you do it, the better the stuff looks. I pretty much threw away all my crappy looking stuff from early on, but if I still had it, it'd look like an ugly step sister of Snookie.

Also, walking away and taking a breather/break is always a good thing. I have been known to rush stuff, screw up, cuss out loud, throw stuff, then take a break, realized it's not as bad as a thought, grab a drink, and go again. Those few moments let you clear your head and actually think about what needs to be done and the right way to go about it. Try breaking parts down in your head while on a break. Sometimes I grab a piece of paper and sketch out/write out what needs to be done. Break things down to as small as you need to go, formulate how to get them there, and you won't go long with a build. It'll take longer, but I guarantee that it will look, perform and hold up better than a rushed job.
