I've been studying Japanese for about 6 years. Today I decided to take the self N4 JLPT test N5 being beginner, N1 being fluent). I didn't get the score that I was hoping for, so i'm pretty bummed at the moment. Not sure why my brain will not comprehend a second language, but I can't remember how to use grammar or how to read different characters. Today the weather is reflecting my mood-- overcast and chilly. sad
