Stay away from Mark (mm2002) and Rick (vicinnretix or vicormatix vecrinotics or something) and enjoy. Keep an open mind and listen to me :) and the others. Some good advise here, but it is the internet.

Don't cut your instructors out of the loop.

Have fun. If you are not having fun you are doing it wrong. Scuba diving is not a race; take your time and enjoy yourself. Ask questions.

Good advice... but I would also include that splitlip guy- he kind of a smart-alek and he trolls the women's forum. ;)

You need an avatar, this is most important.
Rick, umm velociraptor (or whatever his handle is) helped me with mine.

Oh and Welcome! On a serious note, just remember you are learning to dive to have fun and the best thing you can do is remember (and PRACTICE) what you have learned - relax and enjoy!
