Final Steam Controller Reviev submitted by b1-66erdk to linuxgaming

If the controller will work well out of box or with little configuration for games without controller support, it will be worth buying for that alone. I look forward to the day I can truly play just about any PC game from the couch without having to configure a controller.

This sounds more like an issue of a lack of direction or goal than it is an issue with studying. A lot of learning Japanese guides that I have read start at the very beginning with making learning Japanese a goal, and making realistic short term goals and a plan for studying. This is because for a lot of people just jumping right into it without really thinking about why you did it in the first place makes it hard to expend effort on studying when you can't even think of the end result of all your hard work studying. If you make it a schedule or a requirement for yourself to study say 15 minutes or 30 minutes a day, setting time in your day aside for it, it will make it a lot easier and more automatic to go back to it. Ask yourself WHY you want to learn Japanese, and just remember that if you study you will get to fulfill that why, if you don't, you never will.

Interesting. I was looking around for a Japanese text book to own a physical copy of and this one keeps getting recommended. I might buy it soon, the preview of it looks very helpful. I wish it would teach the onyomi and kunyomi for the kanji though.

Thank you for mentioning this! Funny you mention that website, I just started using it last night. I find it very helpful and motivational to have a streak system. I had no idea there was a kanjidamage course on there though, that's going to be really helpful.
