What’s that, dear reader? Y-you want to know more about me, you say?

*cracks fingers*

Well, I’d be happy to indulge you.

As a young weeaboo, I fell in love with the popular anime Naruto. I binge-watched episodes so quickly that I sometimes finished multiple seasons in a day.

When I had finished all the available English-dubbed episodes, I watched episodes with subtitles instead. A year or so later, I began studying Japanese.

Starting was beyond difficult, as I had absolutely no clue where to begin. I was about to explode with questions.

  • What should I study?
  • How should I study?
  • How do I avoid drowning in kanji?
  • How do I track my progress?
  • How can I make my Japanese sound more natural than a textbook?
  • Does everything cost money?

After roughly two and a half years, I’ve come to realize that there are several answers to all of these questions and that other people struggle with them too.

On this blog, I’d like to share what has worked for me thus far and how I will progress with my studies going forward.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon!
