6 or 7 months? LOL! Start worrying when it's 6 or 7 years. Just enjoy the not knowing a thing and absorb as much as you can. R u connecting with the higher belts and building casual learning relationships? That's where you'll find the accelerated learning curve, not obsessing about the people at your level. It's hard to take anyone less than a couple of years in seriously cause there hasn't been a commitment established. 6 or 7 months. LOL!
