I can’t believe it’s been 100 days since the almighty crabigator enlisted me on a journey to imagine the fabled こういち in all sorts of situations.
Jokes aside, I can definitely feel a general sort of exhaustion creeping up on me and would like to avoid burning out.
I have been going at a relatively fast pace, added KaniWani to the mix a few weeks ago as I felt my recall was lacking severely and also picked up Genki I for grammar around level 10 like the Tofugu guide suggested.
Now I usually spend about 3-4 hours a day actively learning/practicing/reviewing Japanese doing most of my reviews spread throughout the day and a big batch in the morning.
I slowed down the last week or so, limiting lessons to 30 a day and doing reviews only 3 times a day. What I expected was less that giving myself more of a break throughout the day would improve my reviews but I actually found it a lot harder to recall meanings/readings as the time between reviews has increased.
I am very wary of slowing down more than this as I feel it would further hinder my progress and it would be too easy to start coming up with excuses, but at the same time there is just so much japanese to learn it keeps piling up like a snowball.
Some stats for ya :
