So if you’ve been following along here, you probably know that there’s a whole lot I’d like to do with this website. But there’s also a whole lot of stuff I need to do outside of this website, and unfortunately, I’ve realized that some of it is going to have to take priority.

In particular, it turns out that completing the Japanese Language Proficiency Test in the next year or so is going to make my life significantly easier with regards to visas, housing, and life in general. But preparing for that test is probably going to take me on the order of 2 - 3 hours a day, i.e. most of my free time.

Improving my language skill is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, so in a way, I’m actually happy about having an excuse to finally get back into it. But it does mean that development on The Daily Paragraph will probably grind to a halt, at least for a while.

I plan to keep writing here anyway, but… it might end up just being a daily study log. We’ll see, I guess.
