漢字 — 2100+
100 kanji, 733 words, 1020 days1; Anki stats, kanji so far.
1) Since the last time I wrote one of these.
@100+ “there will — hopefully — be a total of 21 of these in the end”
@2000+ “I’m really not sure I’ll ever get to 2100”
only took close to 3 years ^_^’
As a comparison to the 1020 days this time, I took me 1301 days from 0 to 2000. Given I stopped to actively search for new kanji to learn just for the sake of it at 1800, extrapolation shenanigans (code) put reaching 2200 somewhere between September 16, 2023 and August 10, 2024.
Largest contributors to the 100 new kanji that seemed worth remembering were 漢検 preparation and books. Depending on how my reading habits and 漢検 aspirations develop I wouldn’t be surprised to end up writing a 2200+ entry at some point. Another possibility I see, is that at some point I deviate from my current procedure of learning to read and write every kanji and create a separate recognition only deck. Maybe for names that would make sense? I don’t know yet. Natural exposure might be enough for that. Time will tell.
