You must be trying to burn yourself out. The one semester I took 19 credits, I barely had time to sleep. Grades that semester suffered as a result. That is also the semester where I developed a severe addiction to Caffeine. I would go through a tin of Penguin mints every other day, and since the campus bookstore was right around the corner from my mid-day classes, Jolt cola was very easy to obtain regularly.

I recommend cutting back a little, if it's not too late.

Chris Hart,

Thanks for your concern, but I'm not too worried. I'm not going to a majorly academically challenging school, plus one of my credits is Karate and three are beginning Japanese, and since I've been studying for 8 months already I think I should be alright, atleast for a while.

And I love coffee :)

Don't be overconfident, Nessa. Usually the things they teach in the classroom but you wouldn't study on your own are precisely the ones they ask in exams.

But yes, you are already a step ahead if your kana are fine and you already know grade 1 kanji. がんばってください!

We don't go back until September 5th. They're finishing up the new highschool, so we have to wait a little longer.
