On this day 6 years ago, November 22nd, 2013, I joined the wonderful
cult website called WaniKani. Unfortunately, I still haven’t been able to reach level 60…
Alas, this shall be a cautionary tale to all those young Turtles:
Do not underestimate the workload, it’ll built up quickly
Do not abuse the override and reorder scripts, trust me, it’ll bite you in the behind
Do not slack doing your reviews, or you’ll wake up to 3000+ as I once did…
Do not reset your level all the time, honestly, why did I reset 4 times??
Be diligent and do your reviews every day
Take your time with the lessons, it’ll be worth it in the long run
Take lesson-breaks if you need to, the reviews are more important
Be kind to yourself, you are here to learn and we learn from mistakes
If I had followed my own advice, I’d have complete WK 3 times by now… instead I’m still (or again) at level 22. But the fact that I’m still here and still doing my reviews proves that I’m stupidly stubborn.
I hereby vow that I will reach level 60 by the end of next year. You are free to kindly mock and gently tease me if I don’t.
Hopefully, the Holy Crabigator can forgive my past behaviour.
