First of all congratulations on reverting/converting to Islam!
Part of Surah 7 Verse 43 - ‘All praise belongs to Allah, who guided us to this. We would have never been guided had not Allah guided us.
[Translation by Ali Quli Qara'i]
The obligatory things that come to mind for me are
Prayer - 5 times a day
Wudhu - If it has become obligatory on you
Ghusl - If it has become obligatory on you
There may be others but not that I can think of at the moment
Here is a link to Ayatullah's Sistani's Jurisprudence made easy
I would advise reading through it, especially on Prayer, Wudhu, Ghusl, and since you are a woman then also Haydh, Nifas, and Istihadha.
It's also good to try and read the Qur'an everyday - I would recommend the translation of Ali Quli Qara'i - it can be found here http://al-quran.info...thmani&ver=2.00
Click on the bottom left box "select translation" type in Ali Quli and then tick the box that says Ali Quli Qara'i and untick all the other boxes that are ticked
As for the holy month of Ramadan here are some narrations on it
Here is a Dialogue on Fasting from Ayatullah Sistani's website
And here is a sermon from the Prophet on the Holy month of Ramadan =)
If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask and if I did not answer you sufficiently please forgive me and ask me to elaborate on where ever you wish

Welcome! I also came to Islam so many years ago, alhamdulilah. The thing I have seen is that most of us are so excited about the blessing Allah has bestowed on us, that we want to wake up the next day and do everything... and do it so correctly. So much so that some people give up ~ and that's not good! My advice is to just your best, ask Allah to help and relax and enjoy.
The Prophet Mohammad a.s. said:
'As soon as the month of Ramadan sets in, the gates of hell are locked up, the gates of Paradise are opened and the devils are bound up'.

Welcome and congratulations. Try to get involved with a local Islamic organization or mosque. They will help you understand the basics concepts of religion.
If there is no mosque or organization where you live, then you can post your questions here and we will attempt to answer them.
With my continuous chain of transmission reaching up to Muhammad ibn Ya'qub al-Kulaynl, from al-Husayn ibn Muhammad, from al-Mu'alla ibn Muhammad, from al-Hasan ibn 'All al-Washsha', from 'Abd Allah ibn Sinan, from Abu 'Abd Allah, may Peace be upon him, which he said:
"Among the things pertaining to the soundness of a Muslim's certitude [in faith] is that he would not please people while displeasing God, nor blame them for something that God has not given him. For, verily, [God's] rizq (provision, sustenance) is not brought about by anybody's greed, nor is it withheld by anyone's disapproval, and were anyone of you to flee from his rizq like he flees death, his rizq would overtake him in the way he is overtaken by death." Then he added, "Indeed Allah with His justice and fairness, has put joy and comfort in certainty (yaqin) and satisfaction (al- rida) and He has put sorrow and grief in doubt and dissatisfaction."
