🔊 🎙 Listen Every Day Challenge - Summer 2023 🏖 ☀

I want to start listening more—rather, have been wanting to start listening more but never really gotten anywhere. Participating in the reading challenge definitely helped when I was still struggling to read every day, so hopefully this will help. Currently I do listening practice, like, less than once a week or something, I don’t even know (last week where I watched a few eps of anime every day was an outlier). I downloaded all the audio dramas and little 朗読s and the like that I have to my phone to make it easier ages ago, and most of them have still gone unlistened to. (Yes, even while I still continue to buy the odd drama CD.)

I’ll probably mostly just be listening/re-listening to the same things. I’m also probably going to end up tuning much of it out even if I don’t start out doing anything else at the same time, because ADHD and auditory processing issues (I do much better with audiovisual media than with purely audio). But something in the background is still better than nothing at all, right?

Unlike in the reading challenges, I won’t be keeping track in this home post what all I’ve listened to, partially because it’s likely mostly gonna be all the same stuff and do I really wanna mark down that I listened to the 2.43 audio dramas 10 separate times in a month? but mostly because I’m never really sure whether to count something as listened to when I unintentionally tuned out and/or didn’t understand 90+% of it…

If, when the time comes, I decide to continue into September, I’ll add that calendar. I don’t even know if I’ll be doing this every day or not, as my main priority is still reading.
