Bankroll Management is obviously very important, but I think you're way to nitty.
playing 2nl until you have 500$ is a very bad idea imo.
First of all it's going to take years to get there, and honestly, there's not a huge difference in skill-level between 2 and 5nl.
It's very important to be able to play comfortable, without being afraid to lose your money, so move up in level when you reach 50BI's for now, and for cash this is already VERY nitty, especially at micros.
So My advice to you, play 2nl until like around 250$, then switch to 5nl, just give it a shot.
If you don't feel comfortable or you start losing like a mad man, you can always drop down.
