I actually stumbled across some Sky & co. vids before I bought the game, so I went in (sort of) knowing the score. However, I do have a noob story to share.
During one of the Sky vids I watched, he was playing a survival map, and ran across a squid. Sky being who he is, he screamed in sheer terror and ran in the other direction. For 99% of his audience, I'm sure this was hilarious, but I - being a noob - assumed squids were a legitimate threat in Minecraft. So for the first two or three weeks I spent playing the game, I freaked the hell out whenever I was in the water and saw a squid swimming towards me. It wasn't until I wanted some black clay that I actually "took the risk" of fighting a squid. Needless to say, I felt pretty stupid when I realized that it wasn't fighting back, and that I had spent the better part of a month running from the sheep of the sea.
My noob moment was right after the alpha update, when I was playing on my bro's account(I didn't yet have an account of my own) and I wanted to craft things. I didn't know that there was a crafting table in the inventory, so I was placing blocks on the ground in the pattern of the crafting recipes to try to get the items, if that makes any sense
My first experience with Minecraft was back in Beta 1.4 (that's a long time!), and actually went rather well. I'd looked things up prior to playing because I knew that the game didn't tell you what to do, so I acquired wood, made shelter, and sat out the first night. In the morning I went outside to collect more wood, and a creeper snuck up behind me whilst I was punching the tree. I think you know the rest.

Higher education leads to higher living. Critical thinking leads to free living.
I created my very first world in 1.2.5 so I was beautiful! I collected some wood and made planks and then I had to look up all kinds of crafting recipies. Later that day I figured out how to craft a hoe so I did, and I went around beating things with a wooden hoe, and it never broke so I thought I was invincible. I was raged to find out my computer crashed and deleted Minecraft and the worlds. So I didn't play till 1.5.2 came out then I started to play and was WAY better than I was before and knew almost all of the crafting recipies, but 1.6.1 came out and I hated the launcher that was required, but when 1.6.2 came out so being myself I hated installing mods on any version so I got this modding program called Magic Launcher and I got my two favorite mods: Optifine Ultra and Too Many Items. Sorry for any grammar mistakes and typos.
I started playing when my boyfriend made a world for me. I thought that to break things you had to repeatedly CLICK rather than hold it so I spent about 5 mins clicking on one tree block. I rage quit when it wouldn't break; it was only on accident that I finally realized you had to click and hold to break things...
Me and my friend were both noobs, flying around in a cave.. It was dark so we searched things in the creative menu like lights and w/e until we learned it was torches... us being noobs chose redstone torchs over torchs, thinking they sounded better.. placing redstone torches to light up a cave.. LMAO
I bought minecraft for the first time! I loaded up a new world, and decided I wanted to make a waterslide hole. I dug stone down to diamond level for like an hour and ran into a cave. I started screaming "THERE ARE DENS!" Anyway I saw a zombie head poke out it killed me. So I respawned and went never mind ill ride the water slide so I did! Anyway I did it and died again! The next time I respawned i had a look around and saw a village! I'm like FUNKY PEOPLE but they have wonky noses! And I started killing them all until I got killed by their iron golem! So I raged quit!
After I figured out the controls (took a week for me to figure out how to place blocks,) while I was jumping around in creative, I accidentally double tapped space. I couldn't get down, so I kept tapping space and was like "WHY AM I FLOATING?" I eventually deleted the world.
