I’ve learnt many kanji! So many that I’ve reached level 60!
Some of you might think this post came out of nowhere, and you’re not wrong. It has actually been a whole year since I reached lvl60, and I’ve had many cakes since then
(the intervals are at the automated range of 1-90-150-225-300)
As you can see from the heatmap, I started my journey back in January 2019. At that point I had started a BA in Japanese Language at university, and the plan was to learn tons of Japanese (including kanji!) and then be in Japan for a year as an exchange student. I would say I did learn tons of Japanese (including kanji!), but sadly, the exchange program didn’t happen because of the pandemic and lockdown, which started merely a few weeks prior to the scheduled date of travel. Guess what happened to my motivation… Yup, that’s right, took a huge hit. I wanted to try sitting the N3 JLPT exam during the summer while in Japan too, but obviously that plan was cancelled along with the Japan trip.
I’m glad however that I kept hanging around here with the WaniKani community, for many reasons. I’ve learned ways to (more or less effectively) learn Japanese, I’ve had fun in the Campfire category, I’ve read books with some of the book clubs, and I’ve met so many amazing people on here I can’t express how happy I am to have experienced the journey of studying Japanese along with this community. And the journey is not over yet!

Shout out to @Sinyaven for their ConfusionGuesser script
Thanks to the scripters for their amazing work
Thanks to @Ditto20 for motivating me into reading books that were way above my level I figured that if I read books of the same level of difficulty as her I’d reach the more advanced level faster. I’m super glad I got to meet you
Thanks to @Belthazar for personally nudging me into joining a book club twice(!) before I finally caved in
Thanks to @konsei for arranging the 2020 Olympians thread. Many motivated people leveled up together
And a huge thanks to the Tofugu team for creating WaniKani and for sending out the bestest emails, I still remember how nice it was to read them after signing up and after each time I leveled up. Thanks for the durtles and the cake!
