Flute Notes Update

Hey guys, didn't see all those replies coming lol. Anyways, I've been practicing Girl/Girls/Boys by P!ATD. 

I'm starting to realize that the first week or so, you have to get the notes down first, then your fingers, magically, just remeber where your fingers go. If you know what I mean.

Do y'all agree?

by the way here's the link to the music: https://musescore.com/user/5584616/scores/1374236

Circular Breathing

So, I made it my goal to try and play Flight of the Bumblebee before my High school experience ends and I need help learning how to do circular breathing. I've seen videos as to how to do it and have been trying for a week with no progress. I'm only in Grade 10 at the moment and is halfway through semester 2. That means I've got more than two years to do this. Can anyone give me some tips? I've got my technique down for the flute and I think that I'm pretty decent--tone and tonguing wise. The only thing that needs work is breathing for me. I'd appreciate it if you could also give me some tips regarding my breathing. 
Thanks! 

*gasp*

Does anyone have any tips for getting the most out of your air? I am just starting out on flute which I am already loving, but I run out of breath really quickly. It's probably because I go an octave higher by breathing harder even though I'm not really supposed to do that. HELP PLEASE!!!!!
