It's worth noting that many programmers do "katas" all the time. These are small algorithm problems that are very similar to college projects. Game of Life is one of them.

You're not going to get away from doing problems that have already been solved. The trick is learning problem solving yourself so you get into that way of thinking. If you can't solve a problem then when one comes up that may not have a solution for then you won't be able to think through it (despite what you think now).

You also won't be able to find solutions to problems that DO have a solution already. If you don't know things like algorithms and design patterns then you won't know to use them when you see a problem.
