Here’s the deal.
When I signed up, I thought for some reason that the half round was actually the period for signing up for the month-long round. I was sorely mistaken, for immediately I saw how others were already reading and reading and suddenly my “modest” 75-page goal became invalid in my eyes. Why this happened I’m not sure, because I now know that had I been 100% committed to my modest goal, I would have easily passed it! *rolls eyes*
I can read a 75-page English book in one hour; yet I only amassed around 19 pages of Japanese, according to Tadoku, in fifteen days. I didn’t do so well, huh? But it was good practice I guess. :3
Instead of reading 75 pages, I reached 77th place with 19.71 pages read.
The next round will be a full-month round! Having learned my lesson with this half-round, I think I now have a better idea of what to do and I’ll try harder with a much larger goal! The schedule has been changed, so instead of May, this next round will be in June. I look forward to it!
