Hi, welcome to the Rev forum and the "darkside". I see that you are in the U.S. If you can narrow that down a little for us, maybe an experienced flyer can join you at a local field. It will shave years off the learning curve if another can help you over the initial obstacles.
I pretty much learned on my own for the first two years, and even though I had oodles of fun, I had to unlearn bad habits afterwards. Get together with someone as soon as possible.
Definitely watch any instructional videos available here, on the KiteLife and AKA sites. John Barresi has made an entire series of videos which will walk you through everything from setting up, line management, and basic skills to advanced tricks. Spencer (Watty) Watson also has videos which cover the intermediate skills and tricks and indoor flying techniques.
Good luck, good winds, and welcome to the family. Like Paul said above, don't forget to breathe.
