Hehe… Thanks.

After almost 6 hours, and a whopping pile of 880 reviews today (new personal record :rofl:), I finally manage to see this:

I’m BACK! :alien: And let’s hope the count will remain manageable… At least for some time :face_holding_back_tears:

All of you keep vrooming :muscle:

And how to drink epic amounts of coffee :rofl:

Honestly I’ve never been able to enjoy coffee. It also seems that caffeine has no effect on me. Well I’m just happy I’m not like my dad who has to drink like 10 coffees on a road trip.

wow 880? what… what… that’s unimaginable for me. My highest number of reviews in 1 day is about 420. I’m currently getting into a similar situation where all the burns are piling up and I’m too afraid to do new lessons before I take care of the old stuff

I’VE DONE IT.
Level 30 by the end of the year complete, and also new leaderboard group!
AAAAAHHH there’s so many milestones

Can’t believe I just reached level 50! :partying_face: Only ten more to go. Even though I doubt I will be able to get to 60 by the end of the year as I originally planned, I think I am quite happy with the amount of progress I’ve managed to make :333

Taking it a bit slower from here on out. Dropping 10 daily lesson to 5 but still doing all my reviews.
Got to level 39 yesterday! Slowly but surely moving forward.

8 Likes

It’s been a rough year for me so far and hence I’ve put off my kanji studying for the past 3 months. Now I have 1500++ reviews in my backlog.

Not giving up on this though, and I wouldn’t want to reset. Will clear this backlog first and hopefully pick up again where I left off.

great job. BTW I found an addon called niai that shows similar kanji when you do your reviews. Do check it out

Well being dead was fun but I’m over it now.
In other words:
Good news: I hit level 31.
Bad news: I’m going away with no internet for a few days soon.
Good news: Perfect timing to wind down on lessons and just get my review count down before I leave.

I’m still alive, by the way.
I’ve been fatally busy the last couple months but I’m finally level 29! Just in time for the end of the year (and my birthday).

Keep vrooming

Here we go again…

Another beautiful day with (almost) 500 reviews :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Well… I comfort myself thinking: Just two more to reach the fast levels :muscle::smiley: (welcome to paradise :thinking::face_with_monocle:?!?)

Keep vroooming
