So after the last 10 levels of WaniKani my situation has become pretty screwed up and I’ve had to really slow down and actually start using the vakay mode to stop the barrage of constant never ending reviews.
I’m trying to get it down to a daily amount again I can handle and have a goal to complete.
But these last couple months have been brutal and I’m honestly just fatigued and frustrated with how those levels went. I still have around 500 vocab lessons I still need to go through before I complete the entire course in sense of “having at least studied it all”.
However because I’ve been frustrated over the last couple months and now I just can’t seem to focus very well, my accuracy rate is literal garbage now. Thing is a lot of these reviews I was getting correct in a normal situation. But my mind has taken a “SCREW THIS” attitude to all this and so I just get my ass beat every single day.
My question now is… I need more specialized work when it comes to these leeches so I can perhaps remove the trigger around seeing them in reviews.
I like the new reviewing of incorrect reviews… however when I do 300-400 lessons and I’m getting half of them wrong because by the time I get to half way through that many I’m just getting pissed and frustrated, things just continually keep going down hill.
So the next thing I know I’m having to do half of these again in the next 4-8 hours or whatever and it keeps a perpetual amount of reviews always smashing through.
Another problem that happens is my reviews that are in Enlightened show up and I start getting stuff wrong that I DO/DID know but my mind is like “Hell no” still. So I had to get a script that makes it so I don’t see those right now while I work this mental part out.
What I feel my mind needs is to get these reviews down to zero so that I can focus on smaller packet sized daily reviews and then be able to use the leech trainer to work on those that I get wrong in a smaller capacity.
But to get there I’d like something a bit different than the leech trainers I have and the built in one now. When I end up with 150+ of these things to work on in the leech trainers, it doesn’t really work well with me because I end up forgetting vocab and kanji before I am able to go through this 150 again.
Which is actually normal, but it’s just too many reviews in between before I can get back to the ones I got wrong to keep correcting them by seeing them over and over again.
I like the leech trainer when there is around 10-20 that I can work on, and I can focus on those until I am able to get them all right multiple times. But having to go through and do 150 just to try again, it frustrates the hell out of me and then I don’t feel like I can just keep doing it until I get them all. It’s overwhelming.
My question is, is there anything that would break this into smaller bits that I can work on? I don’t mean smaller sizes in the sense of just having random vocab and kanji showing up. I’d like to work on the same vocab and kanji each time then be able to move onto another cluster.
Maybe I just have wishful thinking with something like this… I’ve done a lot of this via paper and pen the last 15 months when things got too out of control via leeches… which helped me keep my accuracy rate to around 80%+ from what wkstats showed, but it was usually only for a handful of leeches nothing like I have now, so I’m going to be honest, I won’t be doing a paper and pen thing with hundreds of these.
If there is nothing anyone can think of for wanikani, is there something that can take these leeches onto another platform elsewhere easily so I can work on them there like how I want?
I’m trying to tippy toe around not pissing myself off and making things worse moving forward. I’ve already come so far, I’m not in the business of giving up now. I at least feel like if I need to go through the program again that’s fine, but I want to get everything learned and into the master level before resetting to anything…
You may or may not know… but the real last level name of WaniKani isn’t reality… it’s “WaniKani Forever”. So I don’t mind having to go around the board again. My new home IS Japan so there is no reason for me to bitch out on this.
Thanks for any ideas,
