The hits keep coming

This is the opening of my current game with my friend, karmakid25:

As you can see, I always make the mistake of moving my knight out, and then have to move it all over the board before I figure out how to form a real attack. I'm really having trouble with my openings. I want to attack, attack, attack, but he is always there to counter, revealing my lack of real tactics. Picking an opponent's piece and attacking with two or more pieces is something I really need to work on. I would love suggestions on where to look, learn and improve.
