Last week, I was a bit more focused than the previous week. I decided to give myself a break from studying for my next Salesforce certification, and just let myself dive into Japanese. I’m using Wani Kani to learn Kanji, and I feel like I’ve learned more in the last week than my previous year of chaotic self-study! I’m still in the free levels, but I do think I’ll subscribe to keep learning!

In addition to that, I signed up for Rosetta Stone! The Unlimited Lifetime plan was on sale so I decided to give it a try. Of course, my target language right now is Japanese, but I’d love to learn others later and with this plan that’s entirely possible! For now, I’m getting use to their teaching method which is completely different than I was use to. But I think it’s good to learn in different ways, and I’m being forced to actually speak the language, which is terrifying. I mean, I’m by myself so only the app hears me, but still! I’m new!

And I’m breaking up with Gossip Girl. I gave it three episodes and it’s just not getting better. But it does have me wanting to binge rewatch the original. Do I need another time suck though?

New Books:


Fun library goodies! I’ve been severely neglecting the library all year thanks to KU, but now I am back in action! I also have some holds to pick up from the actual library. I haven’t been inside for over a year! Their hours aren’t back to normal yet, so I’m waiting until Thursday when they’re open in the morning.

Sharing is caring!

    • Rosetta Stone has been interesting so far, but I think it’s going well! I’m definitely remembering a lot since it uses a lot of repetition. And I am super bummed about Gossip Girl; it had potential.

  1. That’s so cool about the Japanese! I hope the programs work out for you. I tend to be good at learning to read languages but I tend to struggle with speaking them.

    I never did watch the original Gossip Girl (didn’t realize they did a reboot). I always meant to…

    Have a great week!

    • Speaking is definitely the hardest! Everything sounds fine in my head, but then sounds so wrong coming out of my mouth! 😛

      The original Gossip Girl is probably super dated by now, but it was soooo fun when it was on!
