IMHO you'll be scared about something for a long while, right now it's the fact of getting out of a plane, then oneday you'll be put in a 4 way or bigger and be scarred shitless because you've never done that before and so on ... if it wasn't scary everyone would jump out of planes.
I am in no way a seasoned skydiver but I feel I know alot about gear. From the moment I put one on I started playing with it, even now sometimes when I pack at my house I cut away my main just to get some feel for it and how it works even though all I am doing is pulling a cord I have to put it back together . I've seen a number of students when you ask them what an RSL is they get a dumb look on their face. I think student should have to take apart a rig and put it back together at least once just to see how the pieces fit together and hopefully get an understanding how it works.
