This is my (for now) semi-weekly level up post.
With these short levels, I feel like I’m riding a rocket. I haven’t cracked yet. So far.
@OmukaiAndi, Hey buddy, I was just looking back at the Level 29 kanji, and… I’m amazed at how few I remember. I’m a couple weeks away from burning them, so I imagine I’ll have limited success when that time comes. All that to say that, yes, long term memorization is challenging. But the point of this little exercise (I mean WK) is to challenge our memories and have things repeated until we finally do memorize them.
Of course you know what’s best for you. I’m just a little concerned for you since you’ve mentioned that you’ve gotten so far with WK in the past and then reset (was it a couple times?), so I wonder if your current frustration isn’t a mental block that you need to push past.
Having said that, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with slowing down, though I don’t know if burning everything you have now is the way to go. What helped me when I was feeling overwhelmed and unable to memorize a while ago, was to A) not worry if I got things wrong, but B) after a review session, really test myself again on the ones I just got wrong, so that I’d at least (probably) get them right the next time they came up. That helped me feel like I was making progress again.
Anyway, sorry if I’m intruding. I don’t wish to be pushy. You’ve made great progress so far, and it’s completely up to you whether to continue or take a break. Good luck in any case!
