Level 60 in 1721 days aka doing WaniKani the slacker way

Wow, welcome back to the game. You’re even more of a veteran than me. Good luck, senpai! You can do it. And when you get to 60, you’ll be a legend! 神話になれ!

Thanks man. I’ll take a look at those threads, I hadn’t seen them before :+1:. Also agreed about @Kumirei.

急がば回れ maybe? Anyway, thanks :+1: :raised_hands: !

Sounds close enough to me. :slight_smile: Thanks! I love learning proverbs or idiomatic phrases in Japanese!

Mulțumesc frumos :slight_smile:

Easter dinner is next week, gonna ask my grandma to bake me something nice. :+1: Gonna enjoy myself for a while :smiley:

My favorite anime right there :grin: nice :+1:

PS: Would it be weird to resurrect all my burned items and work my way through everything again until everything is burned again?

I love hearing stories of how the fourm used to be, looks like it got more and more regulated over the years

Yuummmm as you should! :grin: what kind of prăjituri do you like?

Hmmm in my opinion it’s not really worth it, that time could be better spent reading or doing something like KaniWani/KameSame to practice EN --> JP (I started KW right after I reached 60 and it’s been awesome practice! You can even set it to only sync burns or something, or just work through it by level like me)

Or you could use the self-study quiz script for extra practice, you can filter it by SRS level and set it to burns if you want ^^

I quite enjoy some plăcintă cu mere, or cornulețe :grin:

I’ll take a look at KaniWani, I’ve been avoiding it all this time but it’s about time I gave it a spin. The self-study script looks useful too :thinking:

I’m still doing iKnow at the same time, so it’s not like I’m not reviewing vocab, there’d be no reason to revive my burns :thinking:

Well done! What are your plans now? Reaching for the stars?

I miss him too. And the old forums as well, even though I only caught the tail end of it. I think it was a more interesting place with lots of eccentric characters.
@jprspereira made sure Melon saw your kinds words.

You guys are too kind! I haven’t been as active on the forums lately; maybe I should participate more.

As much as I like to blame the poll thread for restricting lighthearted and silly discussion outside of that thread, I think mostly it’s the users who have changed. While it has gotten more regulated (rip Midorin), the user base just isn’t the same anymore. The old users moved on and new ones took their places, changing the atmosphere. I think I miss the drama the most, the forums are so calm now.

For the time being, finish my reviews and lessons, I still have a big pile waiting for me :joy: all in a day’s work for the Crabigator. After that, just do my reviews until everything is burned I guess. I plan to practice my handwriting at some point too, and supplement my kanji knowledge to cover all N1 kanji, there’s a lot missing from WK. Maybe using anki or something, I dunno ¯\(ツ)/¯.

I regret having missed the private message feature the most. Somehow that got activated while I was in hiatus and disabled by the time I had come back :pensive:. I guess all things come to and end sometime.

It looks like a bit of drama got started in the “worth writing kanji?” thread :astonished: made me feel a bit excited :joy: but yeah, the forums are pretty calm now compared to when I started.
I remember how awesome sect names were, somehow the discourse titles just don’t feel the same way :pensive:

Dat moment when senpai notices you

No one’s ever called me senpai before… I must live up to it and work harder than ever before!

Also, I too miss all those old posters, I’m filled with regret that I didn’t post more back then. Everyone seemed so cool, maybe I’ll make up for it and become friends with the cool people here now.

I’m going for the N1 in December (I’ve been practicing my kanji outside of WK), I look forward to memorizing those kanji alongside you.

Hey, I’m taking the N1 again in December as well, what a coincidence. Let’s both do our best and nail it :grin:

… Need to seriously study the N1 kanji that aren’t on WaniKani. I wonder if there’s an anki deck for that :thinking:

There’s an anki deck for everything… and if there isn’t one right now, there will be soon! I was actually going to make one over the summer, but if you find one first please let me know :smiley:

I’m gonna take the N1 in Boston, it would be fun if I saw some other turtle-burners there as well.

Not me unfortunately, I’m on the other side of the pond I’m afraid. But seeing the amount of new people every day, I’m sure there’s gonna be plenty.

Do you have any plans for after you pass?

Nothing concrete. Maybe get a translator certification of some kind and/or see if I can find some Japanese company that’d be willing to hire me. Who knows… I don’t even know what I’ll be doing next week, let alone next year. Winging it mostly :rofl:
