You gave it a good run, and that's what matters. It's hard to take up a game from other people, particularly if you end up needing to do adjustments. The learning experience is very important, and you'll get there.
As an aside, if you ever want to bounce single-sphere ideas off of someone, let me know. I love Changeling the Lost quite a bit, and I can at least put the constantly-running WoD part of my brain to extra use beyond the code for my own game.
