Still finding some time even this this crazy life to get in some studying this weekend.
Hoping May comes quickly that way my schedule won’t be as crazy and I have more time to study up. I have been keeping up my daily reviews though so that’s helpful.
So I’m doing what I did with the last chapter where I learn my vocabulary and kanji first and then I will move into the second half which is negative past tense nouns. I just feel like I get a better grasp on each doing it this way (a man can only focus on studying for so long before he gets distracted by a cute cat).
This chapter was a little bit harder on the vocab for me. That’s mainly because the previous batch I had to memorize I had been using in example sentences and what not so I was able to recall them easily while doing flash cards. This batch however, not so much. This was the first time I had seen all 10 of these words. I actually like that just because it gave me a chance to work on my hiragana reading instead of just remembering how the word was pronounced in an example sentence.
As for the kanji I learned 人(which actually I learned in the last set because it utilized that one), 入, 八, and finally 力.
The beginning of this chapter wasn’t too bad aside from what I already stated. Just had a slightly harder time getting into the vocab because they were all brand new to me. The kanji weren’t too bad this time around because I was more mentally prepared for it I think.
Where I excelled:
I was able to handle the different pronunciations of the kanji better than last time, I think because I knew what to expect going in. TextFugu is pretty good at getting you to memorize each one with useful tricks.
Where I struggled:
Honestly today was just a little hard to motivate myself to even do the lesson. I know I need to keep up with it. Just been really mentally and physically exhausted the past month. I did a ton of house work and whatnot this weekend too so I haven’t had too much time to relax.
This coming week is looking promising though. Way less stressful hopefully. I plan on finishing this chapter coming Tuesday. So keep an eye out for that post.
