Day 6: Saturday 4/17

Something is really off today. I think its time to recalibrate my head. The Kanji table is taking me too much time to prepare. I will probably stop doing a table and just list the characters that I’m learning.

Anyway, for today, I went to the gym and worked out quickly. Here is the Kanji for today:
