Alright, i feel like that was a lot of words for no actual help.

also, you do realize you are not supposed to mix view points right...

I agree with pls. Frequent head-hopping with little or no transitioning is the mark of an inferior writer. Changing viewpoint should ideally be done only at the point of a natural scene break, and if you absolutely must show two or more POVs within one scene, then at least use mini-transitions such as a couple of blank lines to help cue the reader in to the POV change. If you ever leave the reader confused as to who the POV character is or should be at any given point, you've failed.
