I was looking through a handwritten diary about things related to learning Japanese that I’ve been occasionally writing in, and seeing things like “I reached _ level on WaniKani today” and “I didn’t do _ today, but I’ll try my best tomorrow” moved me somehow.
The first entry is from July 2011. Actually, it was not long after I had come back from China.
A lot has changed since then.
I’m thankful. I’ve learned a lot in general. I know I still have a lot to learn, but the fact that I’ve already come this far despite struggles proves that I can keep going. It’s true for AIS, for Japanese, for my art, my writing, myself… So even though I don’t really know what will come, I’m looking forward to facing it with everyone. ♡
