📚📚 Read Every Day Challenge - Winter 2024 🎍☃🌲

feeling much better today so actually managed to finish vol 5 of ouran! considering how difficult the first chapter of that vol was the rest of it actually wasn’t too bad, the last three are (almost) normal! lookups have definitely decreased except for whenever tamaki opens his mouth. also read two chapters of ドラゴン、家を買う which is okay? first chapter was a bit rough, second was an improvement, had more gaming slang (and words for house) than i expected. i’ve got two volumes so i might as well read them both

today’s nhk article was this one (rough start to the year overall, hope everyone recovers quickly😔), did a chapter of granblue (plus the new years thingy when you log in), and the entries on なり~なり and なりに in aDoIJG.

words that stood out:
ロメジュリ - romeo and juliet (there’s an abbreviation for everything!)

住居(じゅうきょ)- dwelling, house, residence
戸建て - detached house
金塊 - gold nugget, gold bullion, gold ingot

if there’s something you really struggled with/want to know in a particular article, the folks over in this news reading thread are very helpful with that kind of thing!
