Japanese and Taekwondo studies - Day one

Hello all,
Apologies for not posting for a little while, seems like i'm having trouble updating my blog as often as I would like.
Although I don't have a lot of picture evidence, which is something I always like to do when studying, I have been studying quite a bit recently but mostly revising. However, in the last couple of days I have been learning some new vocabulary and kanji.
The first pictures I took yesterday are the new vocabulary that I learnt, once again from a Japanesepod101.com Beginner lesson. The last picture is of my studies tonight, being literally surrounded by kanji study material and notebooks.
I learnt 10 new kanji tonight, which is the most I have learnt in one sitting as I tend to only learn them in blocks of 5. I am slowly getting closer to my goal of knowing 100 kanji, as only once I know that many will I even consider applying to take my JLPT5 examination.
The other part of my studying is for my next Tae Kwon Do grading, which is in around 4 weeks time. For this I only really need to study the theory, along with the Korean terms as I know the practical side pretty well. Fingers crossed I pass!
All of this studying has taken it out of me, so I am off to bed, night all!
