Thank you very much^^
there are also some good tutorials at http://gimp.org/tutorials/

what kind of image editing do you plan to do?
I just want to do different things with it. At somepiont, maybe some image editing, or icon making, or layer using, and things of that sort. I did try to make an icon that flashed each letter of my user name but the letters did not end up where I wanted them...
The GIMP is a tool, so learning how to use it to its full potential depends on what you want to use it for, or what you want to achieve. Do you want to make pictures look better, do you want to ink/color drawings, do you want to do graphical design sort of things? Knowing what you want to use The GIMP to do will help you figure out how to use The GIMP to do it.

Or if you really don't know what you want to do with The GIMP, tutorials are a good place to start. Just search for GIMP tutorials anywhere and try out whatever looks neat. As you get used to the interface and where things are, you can start to apply tutorials for other graphics programs as well.
Thanks^^ I will search for some tutorials!
