I missed updating last month but I’m back for my 5 month-iversary.
I’ve slowed down substantially. In April, my grandmother passed away which led to a lot of family obligations (and drama) which threw my routine completely out the window. I did manage to do some reviews every day during that period (even though some days it was only 5 reviews). After falling behind, I found it difficult to get back in my rhythm but I’m slowly getting it back.
My life is a little in flux at the moment too with things reopening and gearing up to start a doctorate program this fall, so I’m just leaning into a slow pace. There’s no way I’ll be going back to a level in 7-8 days but I may be able to start hitting 10 days soon. We’ll see. I’m not really in a hurry.
Other studying has definitely fallen off too (though I did watch the new Sailormoon movie when it was released last week). But an exciting thing is I’ll be meeting up with some Japanese friends (and meeting their toddler for the first time!) in a couple of weeks, so I’m sure I’ll be practing a bit then.
