current mood: hungry

FSU gave me a decision to make for this weekend: the Farmers' Market or m1. >.> The Farmers' Market means yummy food and snacks and groceries for next week's dinners. m1 = Year of Lace sign-up. *sigh* I finally decided on the market as I need the study food. (Yes, studying is a lot about form and comfort rather than actual work. What about it? :P (Actually, I need to pick up some tea as well.)) Hopefully I can do knitting sign-up next week still as I'm trying to finalise how long I want to stay in Vancouver in Dec.

When talking to FSU about sock knitting, she complained how one of her pairs of hands wasn't working, so she couldn't get as many socks done as she wanted. O_o It took a moment before I realised she meant *I* wasn't working on knitting socks at the moment. ^^;; I guess this means I really need to find that pattern again and work on turning the heel. (For the slip-stitch socks I've been working on and off of for the past who knows how long.) It has a gusset heel, which I've never done before, so it'll be interesting to see how it goes. I just need to find the pattern... ^^; (I can't complain too much. She's knitting a quick scarf for me to match the gloves she'd made last year. Nice soft stuff that I really like. ^o^ )

Otherwise, I still haven't sat down with the new season of anime eps. I have no idea what's been DLed yet, so I should go searching through the desktop and find out what's on there. ^^;;

Oh, and my two bits about studying/reviewing kanji. Why won't you stick in the brain?! I went through three more chara sets on this kanji drill site. One of the kanji that I had a bit of trouble with popped up in the book I'm currently reading (水底の森) and I had *no* idea how to read it so I skipped it and kept on after nabbing the meaning. >.> *sigh* I need to remember the reads more and to make it more conscious knowledge. >.<;

*laughs* The site's useful to a degree, but you can probably get better results than your actual ability if you have good test-taking skills. ^^;;

Oooh, I need an extra pair of hands to help with my knitting. And while we're at it, another one to do the for-money work while I use mine for play! (Oh, that sounded naughty. Ooops.)

O_O;; ROFL! Still I agree with the extra pairs and pairs of hands. ^^;

I'm not sure if any of these will work or be of help with your studies and you might already know of one already...but here they are anyway.


I hope they can be of some use to you. Good Luck. For myself I don't plan on taking the JLPT until I become MUCH more proficient and comfortable with Japanese. I also snagged the links you put up. I might be able to use the Kanji Drill to my advantage. I currently only have to learn 20 Kanji a week (20 Kanji a day is insane!). And sorry, no tricks on making them stay after I finish writing the weekly quiz. If you have any shortcuts to this end to suggest, I'm all eyes.

Thanks for the links! ^_^ *laughs* I'm not literally learning 20 a day but am currently trying to review 1-3 sets a day in the drills until I finish the L2 kanji to get a feel for how much studying I really need to do. So far, I seem to be reasonably safe, but I definitely have some work to do. >.> Perhaps next year you'll feel like joining the insanity! ^^;; Good luck with your studies! ^_^
