Remembering the Blogposts #8

Wow, looks like I’m going to be disgustingly on time this week. Holy cow 9am.

I’ve been hard at work hardly working this week, seeking the kanji instead of the dole just as I always wanted to.

No really, check these stats out.

Current kanji in the system: 1622

Advancement from previous post: 154

Approx kanji per day, assuming only 6 days b/c last was on Wed etc: 25 + 2/3

Sleep cycle is completely and full messed up at the moment, and I have an appointment tomorrow at 8:30 am. this is officially doubleplusungood, but I kinda need to go. I just hope against hope I’ll actually make it at this point… maybe I should just cancel it. But I don’t know… will I even be on time to cancel it or whatever?

…I am almost certain to fail and waste my parents’ money. I’m just going to cancel the appointment. Damn.


Zaka, saving lives.

On the kanji train yet again~! …well, kinda. Lots of days I missed new kanji because something came up and then I was distractedtoallhell and thenIhadto writeblogpoststoo anditalljustkindafellapartincludingsaidblogpost for VNAerbythewaynothere thoughadmittedlyI’mprobablyfinishingittoday andbasicallyIgetsleepytoosoon and thatruinseverything.

*Phew, now that was some hardcore artsy writingness*

It’s funny because when I do kanji reviews when dead tired, I keep accidentally pressing the good button instead of hard or retry or whatever. I’ve even had microsleeps or something with my finger just falling on the enter key on its own.

That said, it’s not like I got nothing done this week. For example, I managed to sleep through making this, because I was too busy doing other stuff (and later, distracted by ts3 for hours.)

All in all, it ain’t easy when you’re always tired, I actually do have other things to do (turned out to be much more work than anticipated, and I thought I was padding the figures…), and I had a bio block reversal one night which made me sleep at the ugly hour of midnight.

Can you imagine sleeping so early, at such an undignified hour for any true NEET? Needless to say I have cleansed our home with elephant feces, for this kind of thing must surely have left it unclean.

Kanji in the system: 1468

New kanji since last post: 99

Kanji per day: 12.375

Percentage done: 66% (whoa, about 2/3!)

Basically we’re about on target if we feel like the rest taking ~2 months. If we want to get to it faster, we better get to studying new kanji more regularly. Thus ends the Tuesday RtB, except it’s Wednesday.

Welp, guess I missed one or two of these, but fuck it. Back on terra familia (hey look I can make up latin!), and finally picking stuff up decently again it seems (though I need to review the 30 I got in today still lol, and it’s 5am, oh well prolly doable).

The goddamn heat and depressingly stifling/muggy air in general isn’t helping. I had to google translations for “kvavt” and frankly I’m not impressed here. Swedish wins!

One thing I found to help keep me sane and productive was to just disconnect from the net on my laptop. I think I need to do that more often in general, as it’s not really a pleasant feeling, being trapped by the screen…

Progress has likely been modest due to all the breaks and randomness and shit, but not that modest.

Kanji in system: 1369

% complete: 62,2%

Reviews missed: sporadically due to tiredness.

Max days reviews missed in a row: 1

If I can actually maintain a steady 30/day, I’ll be done in less than a month. Now, that’s not entirely realistic – but 2 months doesn’t seem too far off at the moment. And then… we shall see if it was all worth it w.
