Is that at all bad? If so, i'll really try to shift at around 2500, even though its obnoxious for me to shift at such a low rpm
You're fine. I usually shift 3-3.5k before its warmed up but I usually don't even get into boost. As long as youre not going WOT and hitting 18 psi, you're good.

16 WRX all stock so far. 53,000 miles so far. Only issue I've had is a couple of times it didn't want to start this summer. battery was acting weak, and it was right after driving it, and then had a short stop at a store. No lights left on. Read around and it seems the ECU likes to reduce alternator output when the engine is pulling hard. That sounds about right, as I flog on this car daily. I have since the first miles. Anyway the fix is to run the headlights on all the time as it forces the alternator to keep working. I'll get a new batt in the near future. However, other than that the car has been perfect. I have had all services done at dealership, and kept it stock. Dealer keeps putting different mileage intervals on my sticker. Previous one was 8000, the next was 6,000, and this one is showing 7,000 miles to service. Do they do that on purpose, or are they making an error there. I usually get it done at 6000 regardless, but I have gone 7500 miles between oil changes a couple times. Subaru synthetic oil each time. Every time I've checked it before going in, and the oil level before the change has been full, and the color has looked good. I drive the car pretty hard. I don't speed all that much, but from the range of 0 to 80 I'm usually pushing the gas pretty hard if the opportunity arises. I don't redline it because it does seem to fall off a little over 5000. I try to shift at 5200 but sometimes go a little over or a little under. I drive it pretty hard right from the cold start, but do try to keep it under 4K for the first couple of minutes. So far, I think this car has been great, and it's not showing any issues from my treatment. She just seems to like to be driven, rather than babied in my opinion.
