Awesome start Jeremy. When I played with Unix terminal for the first time, I made a major mistake which was not going over the basics.

Add these especially if you are in a directory

cd .. takes you back
cd - takes you to the previous directory

ls -sh lists the files/directories with their sizes
ls -l lists the details including permissions.

There are lots more, but add these to yours

Have fun in your journey!
