It's an incredibly useful program. The develop/editing interface is quite user-friendly and it's a solid program for database management, which is it's other main function.

For $300 though, I say it's a bit steep for the average joe. If you're not into cracked programs and are on a Mac, I'd say pick up Aperture instead. It'll save you $100, has an easy-to-use interface and features many of the same non-destructive editing options that Lightroom does.Blue Marine is an open-source option. Bibble and LightZone are also options that you could give a whirl.

Try downloading trial versions too to get an idea of what you like best.

^Congrats! Manual mode is easy once you get the hang of it. Image looks to be a little overexposed though. But keep experimenting! As for the lens, you'll get used to it after a while. I am fine with my 50mm but I sometimes question myself if I should have gone with the 35mm lens, but too late!! I love my 50.
