I don’t remember what level I used to be, but I was around level 40 when I master reset. I don’t study japanese much anymore due to life and hobbies changing. but my SO knows that I studied it a lot before. Occasionally kanji will appear in real life and he’ll say, “what’s that mean?”
you know one of the worst feelings ever? the feeling that you knew something, but you simply don’t know it anymore. it’s just complete frustration, and only at yourself.
so now I just study kanji very casually and make no attempts to go fast. I do wanikani and Remembering the Kanji anki between 1-5 a day. between the both of them I know that I know at least 750 visually now.
I don’t have the time or motivation to study grammar or speaking or sentence structure or hearing skills. but the most rewarding is seeing a kanji and knowing what it means. I’m doing minimum effort right now, however, at least I’m doing something. and it makes me happy.
