Not bad for start.
It is not that uncommon to start what my boss used to called "spaghetti code".
As long as your first code runs you can follow the flow and rearrange the actual code as you go.
The basic concept of the application is what is important.
You can identify the repetitive code and make classes or functions - as long as it continues to compile and run.
Personally I look at writing code and application separately.
And often I do not follow "top down " concept , but look at both application (tasks) and code as kind-off puzzle / mosaic.

Do not get discouraged by "code is too big, hard to follow..." comments.
I do understated that most folks just excpect to "cut and paste and run" posted code and if it does not they get frustrated.

You asked for comments on your coding style and you have received very good ones, if your posted does not compile / run is immaterial.

Now off the soap box and some real advise

When your declare a variable get into habit to initialize it and comment (what is) its purpose.
You are writing code to yourself , but do as is used to do in Chicago
"vote early and often "
comment and over comment what the code does - you will thank yourself later when it gets REALLY big !
Good luck
