how to get started with UX?

I'm trying to get into UX design, though I have already made couple "UX" designs, I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. At least theoretically. What would you recommend me to get started with it?

To my knowledge UX and design are apart.
So being a UX designer is really being two roles at once, kinda like being and engineering architect, or a carpenter smith.

A UX'er comes up with stories that the user can go on.
Hence "User Experience"

A designer uses said stories to come up with X product that fulfils that story. :)

The UX'er goes:
"As a user i want to have the feeling of wtf."

The designer then goes:
"Imma put this link here"

Then they highfive.

So if you wan to succeed as a UX'er practice coming up with experiences and stories for people to go on.

And if you wan to succeed as a designer, practice implementing them.
