Would you believe this took at least an hour?
Probably over 90% of that time I was double- and triple-checking stroke order, especially for the second kanji in “friend”: 達. Phreeow, that one is a doozy! Makes ma’habocath’s poor fingers hurt!
Almost as bad is the second kanji in “school”: 校.
At least all the times this one has repeatedly written 学 (study, learning, science) I was able to write it a couple times from memory! For now. Let’s hope it sticks so I can get through these exercises a lot faster so I’m learning more grammar than I am writing…
