Default 2008 accord v6 manual transmission?

hey, so i've been driving a manual for the last 4 months, its an 08 accord.I felt bad cuz i learnd it on a new car but it should be okay if i made few mistakes.lol.. I usually shift around 3000K RPM, and my eye started hurting now cuz i'm always looking at the RPMS...like its becomming a habbit... On the manual, this is what i'm reading...please tell me if i should go with the book or keep on switching when the the rpms are at 3K. I also wanted to know if the first to 2th gear should be very quick, For example..Should i take the rpms to 3K when switching from first to 2nd? than the speed is about 30KM (19mph). Isnt this too high for the first gear?Anywyas, this is what it says in the manual...if i go by the book, i will be changing gears every 2 secs..loll"on models with 6 speed manual transmission1st to 2nd - 15mph (24km/h)2nd to 3rd - 17mph (27km)3rd to 4th- 27 mph (43km)4td to 5th - 36mph (58km)5th to 6th - 41mph (61km) I just never had anyone teach me, so i'm learnd it on my own and i'm pretty sure i'm still making mistakes.thanks

just take it between 2,500 3500 RPM (for modest acceleration) between shifts. Don't go by the book.. the books always make you end up lugging the engine. Sounds like you are Driving it fine..
