Learning how to type - 1

In the course of Japanese fun stuff, I have to type sentences into Anki. I'm finding that I'm hating it so much, simply because my Japanese typing skills are terrible. It takes me way too much time to type and I make too many mistakes. So what I've decided to do is practice typing as much as possible. It's going to be a project.

I found a game called The Typing Of The Dead II(Wiki). It looks really cool. It's based off of The House Of The Dead, but instead of clicking your mouse to shoot, you type. It judges your ゾンビ killing accuracy based on a 5-point system of juicy goodness.

At this point I had fallen in love. I proceeded to install this game immediately. Nothing could have prepared me for the late 90s awesomeness of this game. Not only did it have a deep plot, it had strongly identifiable characters that moved the story forward!

I've resolved that I'm going to timebox ten minutes for this game everyday and report my scores and thoughts everyday here on my blog for thirty days. For those of you who don't know what timeboxing is, it's the latest and greatest technology for tricking your fat ass into being productive. For the set time, you go at what your doing full force and you can't stop until the timer goes off. The alarm clock I've been using is here, but to be honest it's not very good.

These are today's scores:
Level 1:
Rank D

Level 2:
Rank E

Yeah, that's pretty pathetic.
