Remember, a good camera doesn't make a person a good photograhper. When you get the camera just take a lot of photos, play with some editing and come back to us for critque.
+1 to all of this especially the stuff in bold. Cameras don't take pictures, people do! Put a basic camera in the hands of an experienced photographer, and you'll probably get "better" pictures than if you gave pro gear to a beginner.

A camera is a tool to help you efficiently achieve an end result. I started out in 2005 with my dad's old Nikon FE2 shooting film. Then I got a D70S as a graduation gift in 2006. 4 years later I upgraded to a D300S, but only because the design of the D70 didn't give me the control I wanted. The D70 was a basic wrench and I was working at a speed that required an impact wrench.
