ichigo calendar

as mars sauntered through his door

Whew. It took me approximately 150 smoke breaks over the past 2 months or so, but I am now able to produce this from memory, hesitating only at the ones that still give me trouble I'm looking at you, ふ >:(. Altogether, I wrote each of the kana ~360 times (didn't bother re-doing them with dakuten/handakuten because come on >.>). Here's a (blurry) photo of my (completed) practice sheets. :D

The original plan was to have both hiragana and katakana thus practised by Christmas, but I have apparently overestimated the frequency of my smoke breaks (and I have had no other time to practise). Anyway, next up, katakana. *\o/*

But now I am off to dig Bella out so I can go and get some coffee before Timmy's closes at 3PM. IT'S ABOVE ZERO AND THE ROADS ARE RELATIVELY CLEAR! TAKE THAT, WHITE CHRISTMAS! >:D
