I was keeping up with WaniKani well until a year ago, and reached level 36! I worked hard to get that far, but fell off the wagon due to a series of tragedies in my life. I’m still grieving and struggling, but I just re-subscribed and I’d like to start studying again soon. (I’m making my 6th trip to Japan towards the end of March.) But, I feel like I’ve forgotten a lot… I also don’t think all of my burned items are totally set in my memory, both because of the long time away and because I would occasionally look things up due to a bad case of perfectionism. (I mostly didn’t do this, but sometimes I couldn’t help myself…)
I feel like resetting would let me really establish kanji in my memory, and it would likely be easier this time because I did learn a lot! But on the other hand, I’m proud of how far I got and it’s a bit sad to undo that, even though I feel like it’s the best thing to do for the sake of progressing and continuing to learn.
Wondering what you would all advise? Has anyone else been in a similar situation?
