What do I think, Jimbo?
You should pray the rosary daily. If you don't, then buy a rosary online somewhere (there are lots of websites), then take it to a traditional priest and have it blessed.
Buy a couple books on the Rosary. Read them one chapter at a time and pace yourself.
Pray the Holy Rosary.
You can start small and just pray one decade per day and build up to a five decade Rosary.
Your list of wants, you will find, are simply you expressing your desires. Your desires will change, transform, mutate as your mind, body and soul prays obediently to God. This is why I recommend the Holy Rosary. It's Our Lady's Psalter and by praying the Rosary, you will be guided and you will be instructed and you will be purified and tamed.
Or you will put it down and run away. I'm not trying to be sensationalist, but praying the Holy Rosary will cause a lot of awkward emotions to people who, I know this sounds uncharitably, don't really love God. Pick up the Rosary slowly and pray at least one decade per day
. It's true that there are some Saints in Catholic history who struggled with the Holy Rosary, and there are Saints pre-St Dominic in 1214 who never had the blessings of being in a world that possessed such a great treasure as the Holy Rosary.
After you've spent several weeks praying one decade of the Holy Rosary, then see a traditional priest about a General Confession.
Spend a week or so preparing yourself for the General Confession. Praying a small portion of the Rosary daily will prepare your soul for confession.
After the General Confession, start praying at least two decades of the Holy Rosary. Over a period of several weeks or months, you can grow to a daily Rosary. I think you could try jumpstarting the Rosary in it's completeness now but that may be precocious and detrimental to growth.
Spiritual growth is a progression. You may be an extremely bright guy, but that's just mental acuity, a gift to be enjoyed and used in this world. Your spiritual growth will be something much richer for you.
Buy St. Francis de Sales' book "The Introduction to the Devout Life" from Tan Book Co. and read it, a couple chapters at a time. Ponder the advice he gives in this book.
Good luck and God Bless!
