No shame here. We all have good reasons to reset our level.
I was wondering if there were other people who have reset their level multiple times and what was the reason.
My first reset was from level 28 to level 11. I made the huge mistake of focusing on kanji and not doing vocabulary. Once I started focusing on vocabulary lessons, my review piled up badly to a point that I had 1,500 lessons and 3,000 reviews. Resetting to level 11, the last time I did things as it was supposed to, was a big relief.
Second time, I made it up to level 16 and was doing well. Had everything under control. However, this time around I had a very big change in my life: had my first baby. Once the baby was born, I completely put Japanese and everything else in my life on hold. I don’t regret it one single bit. It was the greatest year of my life. Now a year after this, I decided to get back. Of course, I forgot to set Vacation mode on. Too many reviews piled up again. A lot of forgotten items. Going through a lot of incorrect reviews and re-reading its mnemonics felt like a big chore. I decided to reset to level 11 once again and so far: I’ve been managing to study and do my reviews every day as much as possible.
It has been a good experience. I think I learned a lot from my first reset, including the responsibility and power of the re-order script. I really feel I will reach level 60 this time around. I really wish the same for all of you multiple resetters as well. 頑張って!
