Grr! Working with Jo

I just started working with weapons (Only about 3-4 months of Aikido all together) and I have to say I HATE the Jo. The Bokken doesn't bother me at all. It's just the complexity of the Jo, the moves, the strikes, the blocks, etc etc etc. I find myself not liking class when we do Jo work, and even questioning if I should go to class when we have Jo work.

What I'm trying to say is, will my hatred for the Jo go away after enough practice, or will it always be there?

Thanks
David
