You’ll notice that many of us like to use pretty calendars to track our progress in “home posts” as well - if you’d like to have a pretty calendar of your own, feel free to use the template in the next post! ^^
Unless I gain miraculous Japanese comprehension in the next few days then I’ll still be reading No Longer Human by the time this challenge starts. I’ll continue with that for this challenge and then see what I feel like reading next when I get there.
Probably something light and cute to counter-balance the oppressing gloom of No Longer Human
Random article link because it keeps disappearing from the Japanese Wiki homepage:
I am so ready to be overcome by cute.
And thank you for setting up the thread again and for keeping these threads going!
Luckily though, my overall (spring and summer) shows that I have been improving and that I recently hit a slump. I’m going to try hard to get out of this slump! I’ve felt it pretty keenly lately, so hopefully I can improve quickly.
Probably a bit ambitious but I have some free time coming up in August so hopefully it’ll be fine. Basically I want to make big progress on the VN I’ve been playing very slowly for several months already, read an entire book at my own pace (haven’t done that in a while), keep un with the VN reading club and read a bunch of manga:
Although not with absolute confidence, I am sure that it would be appropriate to post here a little earlier than July 1. My plan is going to be weekly-based, with planning on Monday and summary on Friday. Progressing in-between will be optional, but I might tick the checkbox for reading, nonetheless.
This place will also be the main place for recording general Japanese immersion / learning within this summer.
Personally, I feel no obligation to read everyday, but for listening, I will try to listen everyday with a significant time duration (≧30 minutes).
Mainly going to focus on various book club books and the Himekawa Akira Zelda manga series. I might read a few Satori Reader stories as well, but I might stop reading them b/c I feel like reading actual books instead
reading too many other things, not interested atm
reading too many things
end of satori subscription
end of satori subscription
will pick back up once I finish other books
would like to finish eventually but just not in the mood for right now
I didn’t realize it was already that time. I’ll be here as always, posting as much as my inconsistently ache-y hands allow. Things have really ground to a halt recently from an excessive amount of stress, so I haven’t quite finished Summer Pockets like I could have, but this will be the challenge where it finally happens and I’m released from this many month long reading project (I mean I’ve liked it but it sure has been a long time). My reading per day is lower than it used to be right now but, after the week or so break to refresh, I’m still reading daily.
Plus, in a few weeks, my visual novel club begins! Come vote if you’re interested; it’s the last day for it! It’s looking like we’re reading ルーパーズ, unless there’s a last minute swing.
