My first world was in 1.4 beta I believe. Basically I was scared of EVERYTHING. I built a house from the base of a tree made of dirt and wood (Yeah it was so ugly). I had no windows at night, so I would horde around a small block of dirt that was part of my ceiling near the door and I would destroy it to check the Moons position. One day it was raining, I was in my house and I creeper had come up to the door. I was scared naturally, but I had destroyed the dirt block and it was now on the top of the door. So I was jumping up and down to try to grab it aaaand... Yeah the Creeper exploded. My house was in shackles, It was gone basically, I only had 2 hearts left. I turn around and they'res another Creeper coming from my left. I turned and used a random piece of dirt in my Inventory to fight it off. And right when I killed it, the sun rose. Since then, I lived in a tree house, horded supplies, and rarely came down.
As for the world file it's now on my sisters old PC, soooo it's probably gone for good.

The first time I ever played Minecraft was with a friend. He told me about Minecraft, so I got it. The first world I played on was with him, and it was a nice taiga biome with a flat pasture and lots of sheep beside it. We made a nice little wooden house with a wheat farm I maintained outside of it. We had that world for a long time, then we got bored of it and made another world.
I'VEwatched many Lets Plays, so I knew most of the Do's and Do-not's. Found a beast way of lighting and hardly ever use torches and OBV never get lost, only problem I've got is finding a stronghold in the Over world and the Nether. Can't seem to find any(prob's doing it wrong). P:
The first world I made in Alpha 1.21 I did not like because I could not find any coal easily, so I deleted it. After a few more attempts I finally settled on one I decided to keep. I still have that world, though I am not currently playing in it.
I had watched some first day survival tutorials. I loaded my world and set out to find a base. I found a cave and made it into a base. The problem was every time I got killed at night, I had a hard time finding my base again. My spawn was in jungle and I always got disoriented at night and was never sure which direction I was traveling. I would have had a bed ready in my base but I could not find any sheep anywhere. I had to journey FOREVER in order to find sheep. And this one time, I got myself really lost so I had to kill myself in order to find my base again.
What happened to my first (Minecraft) world? All sorts of things. All sorts of things still happen. I continue to live in it.
One of my favorite things about Minecraft is that any and every world has the potential to be a never-ending world. My hope is that I will continue to enjoy my world to the end of my days, or until I grow to senile and/or infirm to play.

MCX360 Version - Started playing it at a buddy's house. First time with the game. (Bought it for the PC the very next day...) Started building a defensive area so that we could start doing stuff. Then I went exploring. Eventually got ganked by a skeleton and my stuff was lost before I got back to it, including my free map. Lost and irritated, I decided to build a tower where I was at. Eventually built a skyway to my friend's base back at spawn. Built underground base below tower. Moved camp. Built an in-mountain home. Then an underground house in the caves my friend found. Then we built an underground ecosystem ala Genesis Device. Then moved camp again. Then they update the 360 version and we started a new world.
PC Version (1.2.5) - Still have the save. Built the Castle of Ordeals (Final Fantasy 1 for you youngin's) just off the coast, including placing dirt in the water to build the ground it sits upon. Went with one tile = one block (Would do 5:1 in the future...) Then destroyed my safe house in the nearby mountain... including removing said mountain. Then after that was all done, I travelled about 2km west and built a nice vacation home on a deserted isle with a private lagoon... that I turned into a pool... Then I moved on to a new world.

Spawned on a nice little peninsula in a swamp biome, built a dirt house and a massive dirt watchtower. Always played on Peaceful back then, so no mobs to worry about. I just kept building and exploring and building and exploring until I now have an ugly looking town with a large cobble wall around it (mushroom house, cobble castle, stone brick house, dirt house, brick storage, ya, tons of mismatched combanations) I still have the world, but some chunk errors deleted a few chunks around the town, never got around to fixing it, and now I play on a server for survival.
I started in 1.7.3, built a decent sized house with a giant pillar on top so I wouldn't get lost (I was really afraid of getting lost haha) So the first morning I woke up from my bed I stepped outside of my wooden shack and got mauled by a zombie. I was afraid of mobs terribly ever since then (I still jump out of my seat whenever one pops up out of no where) So I deleted that world, not really sure why and started a new one
In a world I didn't keep (Back in Alpha 1.1.2_02), I was on top of a very high mountain buit couldn't get across a gap to the other mountain opposite, a dirt bridge across. This gave me the idea for my first saved world. (There was one before that but I dunno what happened to it, So I think of this next one as my official world #1)
I spawned on a nice beach, and proceeded to some very tall mountains, my plan - to build a home on each mountain then build a "sky-bridge" across the sky to the next mountain and build the next home. So on the first mountain I built a temporary fort out of cobble and stayed in their over night as I gathered supplies. There was a cave in the mountain and for a while I had stairs going down into it to get the goodies eassily, eventually covering over the hole. This fort was only meant to be temporary, but I ended up keeping it in the end. Back in those Alpha days I just build on the land as it was, so I never landscaped or extended land out to accomodate builds.
The next minecraft day I build a wooden sky-bridge across to the next mountain. It was only two wide and not having learnt shifting, I died many times going across, trying to build it. I realised after completetiion it was too dangerous to go across and wanted to add fences on the sides, but knew I would have to widen it to double it's width. So after completeing the bridge i build the first a first official home, and by my standards then it was horrible. A long wooden hut with a dirt roof and cobble floor. Later skylights were added in the dirth roof. It was all one level, with a cobble path up to the house, and absolutetly nothing inside except a double chest and a very badly designed stove. (Stone surrounding a furnace.) Before the next bridge I did my first renovation of the first bridge, doubling it's width and adding thoose fences for safety. I wasn't sure how to light it, so the colums on the outside for the torches (Which were placed on them) were very uch after thoughts.
*I should point out thbetween mountain #1 and #2 there was a huge cave in the ground, crater size, one of those that dropped right down as opposed to a natural tunnel style cave, this was Alpha after all. This cave was where I got all my precious resources
For the next sky-bridge, I wanted to build it out of glass, but knew I couldn't place torches on glass so abandoned the idea and used cobble. This bridge to mountain #3, was 3 - 4x the length of the first bridge and kept snaking off with corners across the sky. Started to get the hang of going to the edge and placing blocks and not falling off , and made loads of torches to light between the fort stlye tops. When I got to mountain #3 I made fort #2, planned to be much grander, but in hind sight it was again a poor choice of location and I never did things like expanding the lans, resulting in a very narrow fort. I built a portal and went to the nether (Over a month later since I started?), to get netherrack for the fort floor. The portal in the nether was underground, so I kept having to try digging my way to the surface. Although I got the netherrack in the end and completed the new floor, it left mne disillusioned with the world.
I had another world I had started (Still in Alpha, World#2, which is still my main world today) and this became my main world.
In Januray 2011 I revisited the world, the infinite burning forest by the huge cave (Between mountains #1 & #2) was no more as that had been quashed, so I replannted trees and had a new idea. I left all the old buildings as they were, but decided to make this huge cave an underground home. It was a big project and I continued to blog my progress as I had from the start of this world, at first adding a very winding set of cobble stairs, just to get down more safely and built an temp home at the very bottom near the lava pools. Over the course of time I converted the cave across different levels to different rooms, wherever there was a flat bit of ground. Seven levels in total down to the lava pool. Level one on the surface of the cave was made very natural like the outside with a grassy floor, an emergency exit, a farm, for wheat etc and a small shed for storage. The levels then proceeded; #2 - Kitchen (Formerly an empty room with a bed to begin with), #3 - a fancy room what would become a dining room down a long corridor, #4 - multi farms, #5 Bedroom, #6 lava way, just a route through and down to the next level named after what I found on the way down obviously, and #7 the main home amongst the many lava pools.
As yet the project still remains unfinished. I still have this world and occasionally look around it, even those n00by buildings on the surface.
I would do anything to recover my first two worlds (if there is ANY way, PM me). In my first bought world I remember realizing how creepy Minecraft was(Alpha cave sounds) and building a house, then feeling scared, a whole Pig Sanctuary, and then building a base of sorts in a cliff face, for a quick way from my two story dirt house to my brick house. I remember creating an island house, so far away ounce I died I never ever found it, I remember the lead up the Christmas spending all days flooding dungeons, and my farmhouse and first farm. I wish I could get it back(and my first EVER world) I really do.
