Read as much as you can about it and keep writing programs. That coupled with your obvious interest will set you on the right path. When you gain confidence consider other programming languages.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you haven't already done so, familiarize yourself with hexadecimal and binary notation and operations (octal is pretty much extinct). If you have "debug.exe" (ie: your computer is 32-bit or less) you can practice with these concepts. All the serious programming is object-oriented now, and unfortunately objects are not required to be self-documenting (hence, "USE THE INTERNET, LUKE!"). But familiarity with binary and hexadecimal is still very useful when studying documentation and techniques, especially in C. I learned more from a course called "computer concepts", which taught the aforementioned items, than I did from any of my high-level programming classes (COBOL, FORTRAN, PASCAL, BASIC etc). "DEBUG" is a very good learning and practice tool, but unfortunately no longer supported in 64-bit. It also has the potential to crash (not just a "reboot", I mean permanently) your computer if you make a mistake (it can, or could, read write directly to your hard drive at the sector level, using the the "W" command!). Modern OS probably prevent that, but never assume so!
ps: probably the BEST thing is if you can find some others who also enjoy programming, either at school or over the internet, and start a club or forum, or join an existing forum. I've learned more from this forum than I ever thought I would, and meet some good people.
