I keep trying to find time to write on this blog, but somehow seem to only be managing one post a semester or something like that. I promise I still want to! I just can’t find the time.
But look at this! I made this!
For Japanese, this semester’s course is focused on current news and global topics. We’re expected to pick a topic to focus in on, then seek out articles to read and write mini-reports on, to then culminate in an overall research paper at the end of the semester. I’m a bit intimidated, because I know reading and writing are some of my weaker skills, but it’s also good to know that this class will specifically target exactly what I need to improve on most. I also really want to focus on getting back into my individual study habits. Last semester, I was so overwhelmed and busy with adjusting to grad school and all my other classes that habits I had like keeping up with WaniKani reviews or studying my Anki decks completely fell to the wayside. I want to make a point to set aside time to do those things, because I know how helpful they are as study tools when used regularly.
As you can see, I have a slightly horrifying amount of catching up to do….
I’m tentatively setting the goal to try tackling the JLPT N2 again in December, but we’ll see how coursework + internship + life in general works out with that.
