Who says I have?

However, the best advice I can give you is:
1. Enjoy it.
2. Don't expect everything to happen at once.
3. Practise, practise, practise.
This site has a lot of useful tips too.

Oh, and
4. Get a copy of Effective Java as soon as you think you're ready (or maybe even sooner). It's more of an intermediate book, but has a lot of great tips, even if you don't understand them all at the moment. You also don't have to read it from cover to cover, because it's arranged in topics.
