Skip the first paragraph if you want to read my question!
Hi there, I’m now a week into WaniKani, and I’m absolutely loving it. After a year of trying and failing to learn Japanese (through DuoLingo, LingoDeer, Kanji Tree, Kanji Study etc) this has been the only program that has gotten things to stick in my stubborn head which is an absolute testament to the SRS, the mnemonics and WaniKani (for properly implementing SRS and mnemonics).
A week in, and new terms are starting flow in fast and free - daily at this point. I live a rather busy life - I work 9 - 5 and I also am studying at university. I know the team at Tofugu have the “if you want to do it, you’ll find time” mentality which I totally agree with. However, I’m worried there are going to be days where I am burnt out and my brain cannot do any more - and if that happens the reviews will be way behind and all of a sudden I have 150 reviews. So, my question is: as you move through life’s twist and turns, how do you manage to stay on top of this course?
I already have some ideas: don’t do lessons on days I’m burnt out; if I am burnt out, try to do some reviews to get them to a manageable level before it snowballs out of control and also download the unofficial mobile app (the way the web version on mobile makes me click the text box every time I want to answer is so annoying to me).
Just was hoping some of the more experience learners could give me some advice on what to top, please and thank you
