瑠 (Lapis Lazuli、る)

I just had to laugh at how there’s some Kanji for super random things. What on earth is a Lapis Lazuli? Not like there’s any vocabulary for it in WK either :joy:

It’s a mineral that has a distinct blue color, distinct enough that its name design its specific color in multiples languages (I assume Japanese too).

It also appears a lot in rpg.

I’ve never played Minecraft unfortunately so I’m not too educated on the term Lapis Lazuli. Seems to be a popular Kanji though according to Google Trends, however it is mainly used for people’s names

oof, had a bit of a rough semester and ended up amassing quite the review pile, now that it’s summer time to get back to reviewing!

Lapis Lazuli literally means blue stone, because it’s got such a rich blue colour. it was an important trade-good for thousands of years, being mined almost exclusively in what is now afghanistan, and being traded to china, india, the middle east, egypt, europe… in western art it’s also known as ultramarine and used as pigment for blue paint. in renaissance paintings easy to identify the most important/holiest people (baby jesus, the virgin mary) in a painting because they’ll be wearing blue garments, painted with ground-up lapis lazuli. it is mentioned in some of the oldest recorded myths, e.g. the sumerian goddess Innana wore a breastplate out of Lapis Lazuli during her descent into the underworld…

…i might have a bit of a thing for this blue stone :wink:

My rate of progress is very consistent and very slow which is why I put the second observation deck as my goal. :smiley:

46 to 47 in exactly 12 days.
The air is getting thinner and thinner :grin:
I’ve recently achieved my 600 days review streak, I’m actually at 610 now.

Today I started the placement test on KameSame for level 1 - 10 Kanji, so far only 2% missed. Over the next days I’ll go through 1 to 30 I think. While reading I’ve noticed, that some of the 10 to 30 Kanji are becoming a bit hazy.

Hello, this is Skytree radio and welcome to Skytree monthly level stats overview. I’m mmm333 and please enjoy our program.

intro music plays

Last month, we were at a total of 716 group members, but since then of course the number has reached new heights - just as our climbers.
We’re now at a whopping 760 climbers. Our entire station wishes the best to all of the newcomers.

We have received a lot of letters and calls asking the question how a radio station is able to present stats graphs visually when the audience can only listen.

The solution is simple, very simple in fact… But, as I’m right now informed by our lawyer, I’m not permitted to share this secret, so you just have to wait and hear for yourself.

This month’s level distribution is presented by HiClimb* - your climbing gym on Hawaii.

And now we come right to the stats:

yay for statistics :smiley: i like a nice data visualisation

myself, i’ve reached level 20, last of the painful levels :wink:

7 days 1 hour, i forgot one of the reviews so i got a little late. not a problem though ^^ this level felt a bit more difficult. nothing major, but the weather changed and my hayfever got stronger, a bit more outside activity (first hike of the season, various appointments), i found it a bit more difficult to concentrate on lessons and stick to schedule. accuracy also suffered a little, but overall still fine. did at one point find myself with 170 apprentice items, but got that back down soon enough. i’m thinking that if things continue like this, i ought to be fine. but of course i’ve still got three weeks until burns start coming in. people say that’s when you start feeling the full load, so i’ll see how that goes.

whether you are scaling the skytree at break-neck speed or, or taking the levels at a more sedate (and sane) rate, as long as we don’t stop we can all make it to the top! 頑張ってください!

It seems that I have reached the Second Observation Deck. Getting 124 lessons at once was… quite a surprise, though.
