Like, I am trying to learn more chemistry, but also computer programming from the higher-level programming methodologies, frameworks, languages, APIs, XML, web development, and I'm also hoping to improve especially with computer hardware/electrical engineering, and I am trying to improve my pixel art/graphic design/animation skills all at the same time, that is no set schedule for any, and just learning whatever I get my hands on.

Is it possible to learn this way for a human, or will this eventually become too much, and I'll have to sort them/order what I learn separately?

I have not been seeing very much success, but I do keep learning. The problem? Well, I can't get a good grasp on any subject because I am interchangeably attempting to learn all of the aforementioned subjects sporadically, interchangeably, and without any fine schedule. Is this a wrong way for a human to learn, or is the human brain capable of constantly & linearly learning anything in any order very well?

You need to distinguish an ambitious learning schedule with lack of focus and concentration. What you describe in your last paragraph sounds more like the latter - try to set aside large blocks of time for each subject and read more in-depth. –  fileunderwater Nov 6 '13 at 12:14
if you just put in some little effort this post can become a good question. –  WYSIWYG Nov 7 '13 at 12:57
