JLPT N1 KANJI STUDY DAY 55-59: 551~600/1017 (Plus, where have I been?!)

Omg!! I’m baaaackkk!!!


Ok, annoying story… the other day, March 3rd, only hours after posting up my latest kanji update, something annoying happened..


I desperately asked around my friends and family on Facebook if anyone had a spare to give me or lend me, but NOBODY had one! (Either that, or they were just holding out lol) And of course, as you would think, without a charger, once your computer dies, that’s it. It’s gone. So for the whole weekend, I was without a computer -_-

However, luckily for me, thanks to one of my very very awesome and generous friends, she actually went out of her way to buy me a brand new one on Amazon and sent it my way! YAY!

So I would finally be able to do my work… however that just left the waiting game. For 3 whole days without a computer charger, I have been unable to update any of my blogs, do any of my online study, or enter any new kanji into Anki.

Today at last, I have finally finished updating and inputting ALL the kanji for the last few days that I have not been able to write on my blog. As a result, its gonna be ALOT all at once.. which I am very sorry for, but I do have to stick to my schedule of 10 kanji per day. And since I was technically still studying those computer-less days using just my textbook, I do need to include those days and all the kanji from those days.

It ends up being about 50 new kanji 😮

Feel free to study them all at once, or take this whole list and break it up, and divide it into the lessons for the next few days.

Without further ado… HERE WE GO! 5 DAYS WORTH OF KANJI!
