(Solved) Pad selection, Organic, but....

I am new to outdoor bouldering but looking to get a pad. I want an Organic pad. Some questions though. Is a half pad enough to start out on for climbs that aren't ridiculously high? Or just meant for support? If so do people normally progress to needing a full pad that it's not worth getting? If I do wind up with a full pad, should I get a half pad in addition? Is this just crazy overkill?

Notes: I'm new, doing beginner stuff. I will be going alone a lot so moving the pad may not be an option mid-route. I'm pretty tame with moves though and have a pretty good understanding of the way I'm going to fall and where.
