Sometimes we need loss.

October 27, 2012

Don’t worry I’m only talking about the loss of information. So apparently iCloud is garbage and doesn’t save the information that’s inside apps. If i knew that I would have been doing manual backups. Lost my salary book info, which was just me keeping track of how many hours I worked and how much money I made. I think I was only keeping track because my work isn’t consistent. Well I wasn’t making much anyway, guess I had nothing better to do than watch myself make a penny every 8 secs (10 bucks an hour). Also lost my Awesome Note notes, but all I did on there were the occasional memo and write down my dreams or the ones I happened to remember. And lastly I logged my workouts on my phone. But I workout a lot, and I know what my max lifts are, it was just nice to look at the pretty graphs.

So I was angry for a bit at work last night but I found a few minutes to mediate and was able to let go. Time to move on and next time I’ll just backup stuff on a regular basis.

As for Japanese…I’m still checking into and readthekanji, and of course watching Anime. I’ll post some recommendations later, time to get into work mode again.


It’s been a long 7 and a half months, but I have finally finished Heisig’s “Remembering the Kanji” Book 1. Normally I don’t stick to any one task this long, I guess that shows how much I love Japanese. I’ve been doing sentence mining / reviews every since I got to 1000 Kanji, at about 900 sentences now (only 9100 to go! according to the AJATT method). I may not get as far as 10,000 sentences, I might go further, we’ll see. I will continue doing the RTK reviews just not as hardcore as I was (but could I possibly go any slower? haha). I was thinking about taking the JLPT this year but I really hate tests, and passing the JLPT 1 just means you can talk to a 1st year middle-schooler and keep up with them, but even that isn’t certain. I just want to get good enough to go over to Japan and do an interview in Japanese and get a job.
