That said, for some reason it only really struck me this morning that I have no idea how much kanji I know or what characters I need for the JLPT. FWIW, I'll be doing the level 2 exam. Oh hey, an average of 20 kanji a day for the next 50 days or so. No problem... O_O There might be a lot of kanji posts for the next couple of months. ^^;; As it is, I have no idea if I bought the intermediate kanji workbook and I have no idea where it would be even if I did, so I'll see what I can find while I'm in Vancouver. >.> I see I'm off to a good start. :P Add to that that I'm not sure if I bought a test outline/study helper... ^^;; I might be making a quick purchase from Amazon JP. ......I hope the 1000ish kanji covered in the basic to intermediate workbooks are the 1000ish I need for the JLPT...? *blink* There's *got* to be a list of the kanji somewhere online. I hope.
And I did find my paperback copy for the first part (of five) of Shiki and there *is* more furigana in there! Yay! ^o^ I still don't have quite enough to be completely comfortable reading it, but at least now I know what trees they're mentioning! I think there's one line later on that lists three trees and I had no idea what they were or how to read them. Shall see when I get there if I can recognise them. One of the first ones mentioned in the book was 樅 or "fir", a tree I'd never run into in a book before. Or at least, if I did, I never bothered looking it up. ^^; I'll write more on that later maybe.
In any case, it's time to get up and at it. Today's laundry day and I need to pack for Vancouver. I think I'll take Mokkun with me after all and start making up some kanji lists for me to review while I'm away. Threeish days isn't much, but I have no idea where I am at the moment and what I need to study. >.> Ah, there's nothing like the sudden realisation of "OMG! I'm screwed!" :P
