Should I be using RxJava for my first app?

Hi guys,

I am developing my first android app and I want to keep the code as clean and manageable as possible. This app is pretty ambitious for a first project and I can see already that I am having to create a tone of interfaces for communication between classes and with this comes state management, etc..; which I have no idea how to do properly, heck I am only 16. I have already began developing my app (about 15% done) and I am undecided as to if I should refactor my app to use RxJava which would take some time since I hardly know how to use it or if I should just stick with what I know, get the functionality in place and just keep progressing. The latter sounds most inviting to me, but I dont know if it is the right choice.

Thanks for your help,

Tom =)
