I did not know I was on any leader boards! O: You made me link the new email I made for WK stuff to my gravatar, so hopefully the durtle will be updated to something more spiffy.
That so great to hear! Always good to look back at times at how far you’ve come. Especially with a long-term commitment like WK.
I feel so-so about my progress.
For the 15 or so months that I’ve dedicated myself to daily Japanese studies, I should probably be a lot further along than I am.
I blame grammar! …and myself. Definitely myself. I just didn’t handle it right.
First I tried with resources that didn’t really click for me, but when I was made aware of CureDolly, I still didn’t grab the bull by the horns as I should have.
I would binge on her early videos of the foundational, basic stuff, push myself too hard, and end up dropping grammar again for weeks or even months. Then I would come back, but go back to the very start again, telling myself I wanted to get the picture as a whole. I did this at least two or three times. Very good use of my time, obviously. >>
I should have accepted that not everything was going to stick perfectly the first time, and just pushed through. No going over things again until going over everything at least once.
On the whole, though, I’m far more pleased than displeased with how things are going.
