September 8th 大海原と大海原 read 2 pages taking me to the end of chapter 1 and it took me 15 minutes. The book club starts in 2 days and I’m 2 chapters / weeks ahead =O
Added 12 new entries to round out the vocab sheet for chapter 1 (65 ch.1 entries) and it took me another 20 minutes.
Still really impressive!
It’s great being able to see that progress within yourself, a good check-in for how much progress you’ve made, and this goes right back to an excellent point you made previously…
My previous “one day dream goal” was just to be able to read ~stuff~, anything at all, even if it was completely painful. When I visited Japan I picked up a few supposed beginner friendly manga and dreamed of one day being able to crawl through them, imaging myself spending huge amounts of time on each page.
Even though reading is still difficult, it is important to remind myself that even this far was previously thought to be an ambitious goal that’d take me years to begin. So thanks for helping me keep that in mind, for the reminder, and the kind words
My pleasure and seriously right back at you
I’ve found sharing this journey and hearing about your progress and excitement to be extremely motivating, that goes to everyone else in this/these thread(s) too =D
wwhhhatttttttt =O =O =O
But you’ve read so much!
So you started on your own, wooooow.
