I was going to say the same.
Anyways, welcome to the world of Gnu/Linux notlinuxsavy, and welcome to LQ. Here you will find many people with a varying levels of experience, but most wanting to do there best to help you.
As for projects; what you should do is learn linux jargon and some other small things; for example, the following.
What is 'Linux'
What is 'Gnu'
What's Free software
The difference between Free software and Open source software
What root is
What a text editor is and how to open one as root
How software is installed in linux
learn to install software from the command line
what is a .rpm, and a .deb
teach you self about the different locations your bootloader can be installed and the advantages of each.
swap distributions to a .deb based distro
learn to manage the .deb based distro as well as you managed Fedora
Those things are very basic, but helpful. There could be heaps of little things like this but i can't be stuffed listing one thousand
so there's twelve. lol. Good luck mate.
