I love his face, we're both going back to bed now
Also, (quite reasonably) he doesn't always want it arranged the exact same way so it can take several attempts. So I'm trying to sleep in this morning (flu shot wiped me out) but now I'm awake because I failed at blanket care lol
(When I've been studying Korean I've been approaching it the same way, using Hangul instead of romanization but a lot of learning resources don't seem to support this approach.)
But I also tried to never use romaji for anything because it felt like an approximate pronunciation rather than an exact one - the downside is that sometimes it takes me a minute to decipher romaji seen in the wild.
It just bothers me to associate concepts to kanji that don't necessarily relate to their meaning or pronunciation - my brain rejects it on a fundamental level.
(Also one pov was a dude and I really didn't care about him... Pretty sure I ended up skimming his chapters lol)
There's one book in particular where I distinctly remember doing that because each chapter would end on a cliffhanger and there's no way I could sit through whole chapters before finding out what happened next.
All because my adhd brain is like, oh no, you interrupted me by switching characters, now I can't focus. I think this is why when I was younger, I would read all the sections for one pov and then go back and read the sections for the next and so on.
I guess my brain is still working on the book and it hasn't all been abandoned for Japanese lol
I was wondering why I was organizing my different chapter/pov sections the way I was, and it's because I want to read for an hour or so before changing pov (minimum half an hour). Which means I've realized my goal is 30-60 pages per chapter.
Also it's incredible how many more resources there are for learning now than there were when I was first learning (early 2000s).
I love (playing and making) games. Spider toots are auto boosted.
