Go for the facebook system man. Start off solving small simple problems. Thats how you keep yourself motivated. Write down the parts of the system which you want, pick the low hanging fruit within your reach. Program them one at a time. For the SQL you part you can get by just knowing SELECT and INSERT statements to start off with, build from there as you need

Truth is if you want to program games you will need to understand mathematics. No gentle or easy way to put it. Linear algebra, a bit of physics and calculus are necessary if you want to do anything interesting. I personally hate design as well when it comes to webpages and as a programmer you would rarely have to do it, rather your focus should be on moving data around a web page securely and doing interesting things with it. Try this for a project: Build a webpage which allows a user to login and only when logged in allows them to upload pictures which are displayed on the home page

It all depends, what language(s) do you know? Do you know any special API libraries? Most importantly: what are your interests? Even if you know nothing about but have an strong interest, that will keep you moving. Also you could consider just writing something on your own!
