So, I didn’t do any reviews yesterday. Actually, I might have done 1. I logged into the app several times, but just couldn’t process anything. I think I burned a vocab word, but I just couldn’t. And for the last few weeks, I’ve gone done from 3 review sessions a day, to 2, or even 1.
So, I guess the thing is, I’m OK with that. I was on a 9 day a level pace, and now I’m not. But maybe I’ll get there again. Big life changes happening, and stability might be just around the corner.
Because WaniKani is a journey, that at BEST will take a year, it’s been really helpful for me to see people persist through all sorts of different circumstances.
So I get it now. 7 days a level doesn’t mean you’re smart, and 14-21 days a level doesn’t mean you’re dumb. It is almost certainly what’s going on in your non-WaniKani life that drives your pace.
So if you’re going fast, please, in between patting yourself on the back (which there’s nothing wrong with, you are awesome), take a moment to be grateful for everything in your life that’s supporting you and making that possible.
And if you’re going slow (and your accuracy is suffering), don’t wonder what’s wrong with you, but pay attention to what in your life is making it hard / impossible to do your reviews 3 or 4 times a day. Those things are real, and give compassion to them. Because you’re awesome too.
