I know im late, but I wanted to write something now that I’ve managed to complete ten levels of WaniKani!

Not only am I proud, but I’m also suprised at the fact that I was able to get this far. See, I thought I’d be terrible at learning an ideographic writing system.

When I mention this a single moment comes to my mind, in a conversation nearly a year ago with some friends. One of them had mistaken Hangeul as an ideographic writing system, and I told them “there’s no way I’d ever be able to learn all of those, it’d drive me insane!” (or something along the lines).

But here I am, nearly a year later, having learned nearly 400 Kanji, their meanings, their readings, and the vocabulary associated with them. And let me tell you, I feel satisfied. I’m glad I was able to prove myself wrong, and I hope I can keep going until level 60!

Though I’ve been even more busy than usual, so I can’t study much anymore, I’ve kept doing WaniKani consistently, and I do think this log has help motivate me a lot.

So, what do I plan to do? Of course, I’ll keep doing WaniKani, and when I become less busy, I hope to be able to learn more grammar and do KaniWani consistently, as well as practice more, and just studying in general.

And a thank you to the forum, all of you are wonderful and extremely helpful, and you’ve taught me a lot. I hope I’ll get to know more of you!

The reason I’ve missed the passed few days is sleep deprivation… Because of that, I might be changing my daily post time to the mornings and not the nights.

I did a lot of the Kanji lessons pretty late for this level, so I hope it doesn’t hold me back too long, I’m expecting to get the level done in 10-11 days.

Leveled up!! :tada:

I have so many lessons, I think I’ll do 20 a day, especially because I want to finish this level faster than the last (I took nearly 11 days on level 12).

Fun fact: I actually made this log to write a lot more than I do on it now, but I’m too busy to. I hope I’ll be able to make it what I wanted it to be when I get less busy, but that’s what I said in… what, October? and here we are. I think I’m gonna have to sort out a lot of things before being able to dedicate more time to learning Japanese. A lot of big things are happening right now, and I need to face them because I don’t have the shield of “I still have time, it’s still far away” to hide behind anymore.

When I get the time though, I really want to start doing KaniWani consistently, and learn more grammar because my grammar is pretty bad. I’ll probably look for some Japanese grammar textbooks in Korean when I get to it, but for now I’ll just stick with Tae Kim’s guide.

Though, I fear I’ll become one of those people who ends up learning 2,000 Kanji and a lot of vocab but knows nothing about grammar. (Hopefully it won’t happen, and I get along ok right now thanks to the fact that I’m Korean, similar grammar.)

Scared I’m not doing enough lessons and that I’ll be hit with even more than last time, I hope I’ll get to 0 / 0 sometime this level (or the next).
