A while ago you were complaining about how hard it was to read without kanji.
What's the contradiction here?
You can work it out.

I've done everything, completed studying, housework, exercise et cetera. Not much to report, still getting into the swing of using my new studying material.

Some changes though: change general exercise sessions to 12 minutes, and bow-related exercise sessions to 8 minutes. Now I also have to complete 1 page of my kanji course before I go on the computer every day, and this will not count for the obligatory 5 hours of study a week. Though I won't penalise myself if I don't do this, I just won't be able to go on the computer (since this is my #1 time sink)

It's hard and slow to read without Kanji because nouns and homonyms and particles all blur together without spacing


With Kanji, it's easy to tell where words begin and end and what the parts of speech are at more of a glance.

Finished all the tasks for this week, though I overshot the mark on Sunday by about 20 seconds or so, so I only got 4/5 hours done, so consequently I'll have to pay Khelly $50. Although including the kanji study I did do more than 5 hours. After today, I should have over 148 kanji characters memorised. I don't think that I've completed my general goal of 1 page (8 characters) a day, though I should be close to it and I reckon I'll get all of the 2300 done in less than a year.

Don't give up. That's the worst thing you can do

I wasn't planning on it.

Some other things to note, I've decided I might disconnect my internet, so it doesn't distract me and I can save some money, and use some of it to get a gym membership. Also regarding my fortnightly budget of $30 for takeout, I've decided that for every hour of overtime I can increase my budget for $5. That way I might be able to treat myself to a nice restaurant meal for working hard. Finished 2 hours of study today.

sounds like a plan.

The internet shouldn't distract you from study - it should be the largest tool of study giving you access to a large variety of Japanese media. (And by media I mean everything/stop thinking just anime people.)
DJ Enetro
TBH tho it can do both, but then again it's all up to you to decide what the internet does to you BC you control your thoughts and actions alone

I didn't expect to really get money, but b1rd is actually serious. Good luck

Did everything. Did last week too but I didn't write an update.

Didn't you expect me to do what I said I was going to?
Yuudachi-kun
I did not, but it retroactively paid for the book I ordered.

Finished. I'm not gonna stop my internet connection or get a gym membership anytime soon. Though I'm going to make a schedule so I can study more consistently, I haven't been making much progress recently. I'm also going on a 10+ water fast starting now, I'll post updates on how that goes.

Update: I'm not gonna go on a fast today, I've realised I've still got quite a bit of food in the fridge that I don't want to waste.
