A few things to remember:
1. Patience, patience, patience
2. Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize
3. Your instructions that came with the kit probably say that it will be ready to bottle in a week. Don't. Let it sit for 2-3 weeks, then transfer to a bottling bucket and bottle it up
4. Patience, patience, patience
5. It's really hard to mess up your beer. It might: be cloudy, smell different then you imagine, taste different than you expect, you might forget to do a step, might drop something in the wort, any number of things. Don't freak out, you'll end up with a beer you're proud of
6. Relax Don't Worry Have A HomeBrew (RDWHAHB), or your favorite commercial brew

And most importantly:
PATIENCE, PATIENCE, PATIENCE

Best of Luck on Batch 001, and welcome to Home Brew Talk and the passion of home brewing. Tomorrow morning I am brewing batch 014 of my short brewing life, an IPA all grain. The starter is in the fridge cold crashing, harvested from Bell's Pale Ale. This is the second batch with the same recipe and yeast, the 1st was so good I have to make more before these run out!

Happy Brew Day Number One!

Good luck....

You will make beer.

Don't rush it and it will be good.

Pick up another fermenter and brew more while you are. waiting.

Thanks everyone. I just put the airlock in and it is now sitting in the darkest room in the basement. I used the Northern Brewer Innkeeper recipe kitand it says to keep it in a room between 68 and 74. I have it in one that is 73 right now, but can move it to one that is in the 71-72 range. My electronic thermometer went on the fritz on me while I was cooling the wort an it kept telling me it was 138 deg. even after being in an ice bath for a decent amount of time, so i ended up cooling the wort a little more than the directions called for but it was still in the range the package of yeast called for, so I pitched it and that is that.
