What do you guys mean!?
Way back in alpha I was so freaking scared of creepers I was playing the now popular stoneblock! Around minecraft-day 100 or so I carefully entered a cave the first time. Must have been around 400 days in when I started building a huge cobblestone wall, 5 blocks wide and ATLEAST 20 high. Nice cobble only base with very high balconies. And probably 1000 days in when I first set foot outside of my wall, mind you after 3/4ths had already past because of me waiting for everything to burn in the sunlight. Take that, I never died!

My first death was because I thought I could totally beat an Enderman with my stone sword and partial iron armor, but I think the biggest mistake I made in that world as not realizing you had to dig down for ores. I never even realized I had done this, but when I loaded back up the world years later I realized that I had literally only dug like 10-15 blocks under the surface and then just made a massive 3x3 strip mine that went on forever. No clue why I didn't realize you had to dig down. I did have plenty of Iron and Coal though lol

Going trump style with spiders... I didn't get enough wood to finish a roof so I just kept making cobble walls around me when I tried to run to get wood... Oh and that time in the demo world when they added slimeblocks. Tried bouncing but failed... XD

It was when Notch first added sand to Minecraft, and I was making a house.

The first time I played Minecraft was at a birthday party where we did a treasure hunt on a server, and IIRC the first thing I did was get killed by cactus, and then later I lost the other people while trying to follow a compass across an ocean and got sidetracked mining ores in a cave, and then had to be teleported to the other people to catch up with them.

Running straight into a group of spiders, creepers, skeletons, and zombies to avoid zombies.

In case you're wondering, I died.

I searched imediatly for food, but only saw sheeps. Because I was on MC 1.5, Sheeps didn't dropped mutton at the time, but I was so convinced that you could have meat with this animal, that I ended up mistaking a zombie and a "rArE gReEn ShEeP". When I realised it was attacking me, I instanly panicked and quit the game.
The next day, I oppened the game and as soon as I loaded in, I left the computer like 30 secs.
I sometimes wonder why I thought why did I thinked that the zombie would leave overnight

If I can remember correctly, it was just before the weather update. I was paranoid, convinced my base was going to flood, so I spent about an hour building canals to divert water... only to discover when it came out, that rain didn't spawn anything xD

On my first world, I made the mistake of fighting a creeper using a melee weapon (was a wooden sword)

I ended up getting blown up.

I learned from that, and now I do not go after any monster until I have an iron sword.

My first house back in beta 1.7 was a dirt house with a trap door cause that's the only thing i could figure out how to craft at the time.

Before I played Minecraft, I watched lots of YouTube let's plays. Also read the MINECRAFT ESSENTIAL HANDBOOK

Not knowing anything about crafting recipes xD
I only knew how to make a workbench and it was my entire pride.
But the problem solved itself when I found the all-knowing Minecraft Wiki.

Using creative mode to replace lost items for the first time. Once you decide to use creative mode in a survival world to "regather" lost items (due to death), it takes away the joy of the survival experience. It's nearly impossible to get back into the mindset of the survival experience knowing that it isn't completely genuine, nor is it easy knowing that that option is ready to be used whenever you want.

Sadly I don't remember my first time playing Minecraft, Though I did watch a friend play before I started.
So I knew the creepers and other mobs. So maybe spending to much time gathering recourses?

Built a treehouse on the tallest tree in the middle of the jungle where there's little resources,creepers blows up my only entrance/exit every morning and I can't tell time when looking for resource because the jungle is so dark it block the sun. I don't remember how my house got destroyed.It's either lightning came to say hi or was it me using flint n steel for the first time.
