Welcome to APUG, Casey.
That's about the most honest introduction I can remember. Well done.
Can you tell us what you've been doing with your camera recently? And which film camera you might hope to purchase?
That "not knowing" part is one of the most exquisite pleasures of film photography. We all enjoy that. It's also an excellent taskmaster because it will force you to really learn how to use a camera since there is no instant feedback.
Enjoy your stay...
