I did two Wanikani sessions this morning, 7:57-8:04 (36 reviews) and 9:17-9:26 (52 reviews). The latter, 52 reviews in 6 minutes, would have put me on pace for 100 in 12, far faster than I’ve ever done before, and I couldn’t believe the numbers.

I’m flying out for Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I probably won’t be doing many reviews for the next week or so.

Maybe aim for just 20-30 per day, which will keep the number from exploding.

I’m back from vacation now, but unfortunately, I also have a cold and persistent Airplane Ear.

I’m definitely sensitive to changes in elevation in that regard.

If you’re still having issues with it, try chewing some bubble gum, and while you do so, place a thumb behind the area above each earlobe and gently massage in a circular motion. This creates uneven spaces to help the air pressure seal break so your ears can “pop”. Usually works for me, but sometimes I have to do it a few times.

Fortunately, it seems to have fixed itself while I was asleep briefly tonight. Unfortunately, I’m having a lot of trouble sleeping…

Take it slow and keep chipping away when you can. Even doing 20 a day has helped I think - your upcoming reviews in next month haven’t skyrocketed so the long term review burden won’t be too bad.
