1000 Kanji

Yesterday I made flashcard 1000 for Remembering the Kanji 1. That's not quite the halfway point (I'll reach 1021 tomorrow) but it IS the 1/3 mark for the whole series of 3 books. It's also a little weird to be writing 4-digit numbers on my cards now too.

Unfortunately, finances won't allow me to go back to weekly Japanese class for a while. To compensate, I'm going to pick up the pace in Japanese for Everyone and try to knock off 2 lessons per month instead of 1.

And to observe the passing of kanji 1000, today's mail brought 漢字そのままDS楽引辞典 (Kanji Sono Mama DS Rakubiki Jiten), software which turns your Nintendo DS into a Japanese dictionary which allows you to hand-draw kanji on the touchpad. From the description and the video it looks pretty handy. Now I just need a Nintendo DS!
