Hi Andrew,

Welcome! Before I go suggesting particular tickets, I just wanted to make
sure that you've taken a look at this section of the
Newcomers page! It lists a decent set of tickets deemed workable for
newcomers. This doesn't, of course, mean that you have to go it alone. In
my experience people are always happy to help!
