Just subscribed, here we go!

The Lifetime Sale ended on January 8th, so I think you received a 50% off code. Congratulations and stick with it. The Crabigator is watching… :crabigator:

How, exactly, would one get one of those? Asking for a friend.

I wonder if I… I mean my friend… missed the boat by signing up for a paid subscription right after finishing level 3.

I so wanted to do that during the sale but I couldn’t swing it this year. Hopefully next year :smiley:

The best advise i heard was to not rush yourself to do it but make it like habit you can enjoy doing. otherwise you might risk lossing your passion and the motivation that got you started. I got overcomed in one of the levels. Because i was forcing my way through levels. And almost gave up. I am back on track now

I’m actually avoiding buying the lifetime sub. I feel like the fact I know I’m on a subscription is motivation to keep moving because I’ve paid for this month already so any day I skip is wasted money. Having the lifetime sub would give me more room to procrastinate because “I can always come back to it later.”

Maybe that’s just me though.

Congrats! Without WaniKani, I don’t think I could ever realistically learn kanji. I tried learning from a book at first, but WaniKani has been nonstop fun with its hilarious and memorable mnemonics, descriptions, example sentences, and genuinely friendly and supportive community.

(that sounded way more like a testimonial than I intended it to :laughing:)

oh yeah, this reminds me of this graphic, i think many people are motivated in the beginning and try to go as fast as possible, then get overwhelmed by the reviews. So be careful.

This seems pretty true, my workload has now stabilized around the 20s. It’s alright for me though.
And of course you can set your own pacing by e.g. stopping lessons when you have 100+ apprentice items.

Damn, so I have only started climbing what I thought was a hill but turned out to be a mountain. But I will do my best to keep at it!

Yes, but it’s like with a real mountain, you just have to see at which pace you can climb it. Don’t overwhelm yourself and fall. Slow and steady wins the race.

Never slack off, even in the hardest of times, do your reviews at least once a day. And if you go on vacation, stop doing lessons two weeks before. After your vcation, don’t procrastinate for a year. Happy learning.
