ロウェナの学習ログ・(Rowena's Study Log)

Sorry to hear Grad School has been set back for you too, but good to know you’re taking care of yourself.

The online aspect of my coursework was nearly like a course in itself :tired_face:, so take advantage of any advanced access you might have to learn to navigate that before your actual classes start.

I know you follow @ChristopherFritz’s study log, so to get back in the swing you could do as he did and have just 1 lesson a day to have forward movement without too much stress.

I was determined to not do lessons until I got caught up on reviews, but then saw another staff post about new additions and realised that the new low-level stuff should be far less taxing, so I’m doing 3 lessons a day. Because of my review backlog, I installed 2 new scripts; [Userscript] Reorder Buttons, and [Userscript] Wanikani Wrap-up Button Enhancement, which together allow me to do my apprentice items on time while chipping away at my more advanced items over the next week or so.

Thanks for the tip! I have actually scheduled a zoom walk through for the program that I am applying to so I am glad to hear that this is a good idea. The class that I hope to enroll in either today or tomorrow is at a different school but probably uses a similar interface so yay for a test run.

I went ahead and did five lower level lessons after I posted earlier and then discovered that because of the addition schedule I missed two, so yes, having the ability to customize the number of lessons would be super helpful. Especially on Thursdays. :sweat_smile:

I assume @ChristopherFritz uses a script for that?

What kind of backlog are you working through? Nothing in the thousands I hope.

I use seanblue’s “WaniKani Lesson Filter” userscript for desktop computer, and the Flaming Durtles app on Android, for filtering the number of lessons I do.

Thanks! I’ll give this a shot the next time additions roll around. Looks like I’ll need to go through Chrome.

Nah, I didn’t let things get that bad :relieved:. I’m hovering about the 400 mark, so taking upcoming reviews into account, if I do about 90 a day, I should be caught up in a week. I may also increase my lessons to 6/day to get back up to my actual level at about the same time.

Right on. Seeing those monster review posts in the forum seriously stress me out. I ended up installing the lesson filter script after all- making that sound much easier than the fumbling around I did- and it feels good to get started again. Now to find a writing app I like because I want to test out that method as a reinforcer. And because I follow the Kanken thread where there was a long and ongoing discussion about writing.

At long last, a post about my plans for the week ahead.

It’s definitely on the light side (textbooks remain in two or three of scores of unlabelled packing boxes), but it’s good to be getting back into a routine again.

The 毎日(まいにち)読書(どくしょ) has been left blank, though I am currently reading an NHK News Easy web article each day, but hope to stumble upon my にゃんにゃん books so that I can finish the last one we read as a group and maybe even read the first book in the series. Not sure if the bookclub will be firing back up this month - @ChristopherFritz, when were you thinking of posting that poll you mentioned?

Next week’s schedule:

For polling specifically, I failed to set a reminder and forgot. (I’m useless without reminders.)

For checking in on readiness for a potential reading start date, I’ve been keeping an eye on your study log.

Don’t mind me if I’m completely bothered by the order of the books there…

:grin: I just grabbed them out of the box and shoved them on a shelf, sorting to be done more leisurely; I emptied about 3 dozen boxes yesterday evening.

Well, it’s already most of the way through Wednesday, but I’ve finally got myself sorted back into the beginnings of a routine, so this week’s plan is below.

The daily reading challenge didn’t last long, not because I don’t want to read, but because I was spending nearly as long posting and creating multiple links among my posts as I was reading the news articles (plus my introverted heart was having an attack each time I woke up to 28 new posts in a single thread) . I think I’ll get back to the graded readers until the book club starts up.
