LOL.. I Know the feeling.. Unfortunately for me my fermenter is clear, so I can see whats going on..

Actually think I am having feelings for it like a pet and even feel that maybe its staring back at me.

I am sure as I do this longer and have multiple batches running at the same time I get over this.

Nah.. I will never have patience..

More batches just means more "voices" calling from the fermentation chamber.......

I have no patience! Thats why im a 2/2 kinda guy! After the 2 weeks of conditioning i put half the bottles in the fridge and leave half to condition for a couple more weeks! (Or until i drink all of the first half) ; ) be careful! It is addicting as they say it is!

I wouldn't use a secondary at all. Secondaries are only usefull for adding dryhops, fruit, wood, etc. to your beer. Or if you are going to age a large beer for more than a few months. The beer will clear just as much in the primary as it will in the secondary, and maybe even more in the primary because you're not stirring things up by racking it. The kit intructions probably say to use a secondary, but most kit instructions are pretty much worthless, and the company probably just wants to sell more carboys. Plus you really need to leave the beer in contact with as much yeast as you can to give the yeast time to clean up any off flavors and by-products it produced during the main fermentation. Also, by transfering the beer you are unnecessarily risking an infection.

When I use buckets I always make sure to sniff the airlock a few times per day to help me feel more connected to my beer!

Congrats!

Best way to get patience is building a pipeline, which ironically, takes a LOT of patience. But once you have a decent pipeline of home brew, you'll be able to wait 1 month in the primary without thinking twice.
