That's not bad for new, but the 18-55 is a weak lens.  It's not a bad lens, but it rarely takes ones breath away.  When I first got my SLR I was so excited because I thought I could get shots that would be so different than a point and shoot... and they weren't... not until I picked up a 50mm f/1.8 (which with this price you can get).  And I did have the 50mm and the 18-55 and the 55-250 as my three lens set up for about a year.  But I rarely used the 18-55...
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I'm sure you are lost in a sea of all the suggestions:

My 2 cents - to you as a first time DSLR user:

Get a t2i (should be cheaper then t3i) kit (18-55) + canon 50mm 1.8

Should all be well under 1,000. Stop there. As you develop a style and get experience you will build up.

Mostly interesting suggestion. The only problem is the OP will like it so much as to  feel the urge of getting ehmmm, the 35mm 1.4L the 85mm 1.8 the 135mm f/2.0, the 5DMarkIII   ::) (not necessarily in that order though  ;D )

My budget is about 1000 which I know isn't much but I wanna make sure I get the most bang for my buck. Any suggestions?
Get a used t2i/t3i with a 18-135mm and a 50mm f/1.8, and you would still have money for a little tripod, a bag, and a couple of filters.
