I am creating a composition that is less than 30 seconds long and when I press the spacebar to preview it, it is super laggy and slow. The green "bar" above is also super broken up and the bar is only full over single frames.

You mistook AE for and editing software.

There is nothing wrong, you just need to understand that AE is rendering each frame and only when everything is rendered, it does a realtime playback.

So, hit spacebar and WAIT. Let it render. Once the green bar is filled, you get real time playback.

 

Open info panel to see what AE is currently doing and get in touch with the settings in the preview-panel. The more you are doing in AE, the more you are dealing with these settings.
