It’s been a tough few months.
This semester was my last semester of college, and I foolishly rushed to put classes that I found interesting and would teach me useful skills onto my schedule, rather than concerning myself with the difficulty of said schedule. Between that and work, I found myself without the time to devote to WaniKani. About two months ago, reluctantly, I turned on vacation mode. I’ve learned to fear this button from experience. Bad things happen to your correct percentages after even a week or two.
After a few weeks, my fear overtook me, and I turned vacation mode off. My workload hadn’t been reduced, and now I was rusty. It was a mistake. I had to turn it back on before too much damage was done.
Now? I’m graduated, a few weeks away from starting my new job, and sitting on a ton of time. I’ve taken the chains off the Crabigator, but I wasn’t prepared for what faced me. Yesterday, I turned vacation mode off. Today, I face this:
What is a man to do in the face of one thousand reviews? Hide? Restart from level one? Turn vacation mode back on and slowly abandon hope?
No. Today I face this mountain with a pick in my hand. Today, and tomorrow. And the next day. And as many days as it takes to reduce it into neatly sorted mounds of rubble. Pray for me.
