Ethereum, Geth, Linux: I'm new to this interweb thingy :(

I have read the guides and followed the wiki. Installed geth on linux Mint. I run "geth console" and after catching up it shows importing 1 block at a time, I'll copy a few lines below...


((I0127 23:21:29.738424 8097 blockchain.go:1251] imported 1 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 0 txs in 16.240283ms. #915613 [837f1af6 / 837f1af6]

I can't do anything else. I can't seem to check my balance or run any commands or anything. It just continues on importing blocks as described. I don't understand what is happening and I don't know what to do from here. I'm very interested in continuing learning about Ethereum and building dapps and mining, etc, but I seem to have hit a wall. Can someone please explain to me where I go from here. I have very little prior knowledge but I have spent some hours reading and taking notes and I'm willing to learn I just need some guidance. How do I go from confused noob to Dapp creating, champion of the blockchain?
