Okay, let's try this.

1. The review book I'm using for the Kanken is divided into 'steps'. I'm doing three a day to be done by this Sunday, so I can spend next week taking practice exams. Every day, usually around the time I finish the first workbook, I think "maybe today I can finish four steps". Each one takes me about 50 minutes (most of this is taken up by battling with anki), so this is totally doable.

Except...except, every afternoon I get started on the third one and...ugh. Translate some vocab...read fic...make anki flashcards...check Ravelry...practice stroke order...gaze vacantly into space...repeat. The third step of the day always takes at least 2-3 times as long.

Point of fact, I should be working on it right now.

A fourth step? Ugh ugh ugh.

2. I'm glad my supervisor lives with his mother, since he has some odd ideas about nutrition.

Supervisor: At the winter festival, this Sunday?
Me: Yes?
Supervisor: There will be free soba for lunch.
Me: Oh, good.
Supervisor: But only soba. You'd better bring rice ball.

Right. We're only going to be fed a bowl of carbs and salt, so I should remember to bring another ball of carbs wrapped around a tablespoon of fish.
