It was in my second year of college that I learned the meaning of the word sophomoric, conceited and overconfident of knowledge but poorly informed and immature. It kind of hit hard. And it was kind of true. It was a time when I learned enough to know I didn’t really know anything.

The below is a certificate that says I reached 3rd dan in Japanese calligraphy. Kana only, not kanji (more on that later). I wrote a post earlier about how I was proud of some kana I’d done. Turns out, the powers that be agreed, so they ranked me up.

And I feel like a sophomore now. I know just enough to realize how far I have to go.

Below are the works I submitted.

I reached 2nd dan in kanji, too. Also an accomplishment, but I feel equally sure of how much more work I need to do.

The below are some of the works I submitted.
