Investigating the micros

Hello guys!
It's my first thread on the forum so let me introduce myself. My name is Balint, I am from Romania and i'm 19 years old. I'm starting university at the Faculty of Automation and Computer science tomorrow.
I've been watching poker for a long time now on twitch, and got hooked to the game.I've deposited a few times, but always cashed out the winnings as they went past 150-200$.
So let's get to the point. I deposited 60$ around a week ago and decided to play 5nl zoom. It was a pretty aggressive bankroll management, but i started very confident and lost around 20$ the first day. Then i played some micro tournaments and sit and go's, with winning back the 20$ and a bit more at the 0.27 hyper turbo, where i finished in 4th.
I played 2nl zoom for a long time and had no mood for that mess, so I started playing 2nl at regular tables. 6 tables at a time, and it looks to me a money making machine. It is the softest I've ever seen. Bunch of people playing 100% of their hands, donating their money.
After winning some money at 2nl i decided to take a shot again at 5nl zoom and after winning a bit, then hitting a downswing i decided to stop and stick to the 2nl regular, where i feel a lot more comfortable.
So what's my plan? I want to play 6 or more tables at 2nl regular until my bankroll reaches 100$ (current br 72$) and see how i'm doing on a larger scale. 6k hands aren't much. I will also try to keep this thread alive with the daily graphs, and maybe couple of hands that seem interesting, although not a lot of fancy plays happen at this stake.
If you wish to share your experiences at the micros stakes cash games or tournaments you are more than welcome. My experience says that 5nl zoom became one of the toughest levels i've played. Lots and lots of coolers in 1-2k hands i didn't experience in 6k hands at the 2nl regular tables. I am looking forward to trying 5nl regular tables to see how they are, but first things first want to get to the 100$ checkpoint.

I don't know why the images aren't working. I'll post the links.
