Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely try loading in the light in order to practice. I wasn't aware about the Arista film not having any hardeners in it, thanks for the information. I'll just have to be really careful about loading it. I think my problem was that I was trying to load it from where the light trap at the bottom starts - instead of feeling for the start of the grooves and then sliding it in from there. Doing some more shooting tomorrow of my sister and hopefully heading up to Los Angeles on Saturday. Hopefully the shots I take come out alright. I think I'll develop one sheet and see how it comes out, and then base my development times of the other photographs off of that.
