I want to be able to generate my own random numbers without using the random module. I want to do this that way I can learn somewhat how to do the big boy code on my own.

Best way to create one is to not to.

Pseudo-random number generators are a very complex subject, so it's better off to use the implementations produced by the people that have a good understanding of the subject.

Python uses the Mersenne twister as the core generator. It produces 53-bit precision floats and has a period of 2**19937-1.
The underlying implementation in C is both fast and threadsafe.

You can of course look at all code for python.

Pitfalls in Random Number Generation

    '''Chosen bye a fair dice roll,guaranteed to be random'''
    return 4
