"Decided to shoot at ..."
"...taking a stab..."
Okay, sounds like you like to play blackjack
too. You are just gambling. Probably playing for the rush. Settle in on a game and work it for a few months - that's why it's called grinding. My serious heartfelt suggestion is scrap everything you think you know, commit to a bankroll appropriate game until Easter and get serious. This will help your overall game tremendously.
You are going to also have to get way more than casual about studying = "Realized I do much better decisions if I watch some sort of coaching video while playing."
Get a copy of "Crushing the Microstakes" - put it next to your toilet - read a couple pages a day - anything you need to do.
In a nutshell - stop screwing around and get serious - at least for a little while
Now once you have focused on a game and stake it will be easier to ask for and get answers to questions and it will all flow for you a lot easier.
