I was just going to like the post but then I thought it would look like I was happy you failed so going to quote lol xD

You were really close to passing tho. Do you know what you will be using to study for N2 this time?

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

My plan mostly is to ignore the JLPT until I get to about June or July, just work on Finnish and read and watch random Japanese stuff. Also I'm taking class once a week and we do reading and I'm tested on writing Kanji there. I'll start thinking about JLPT and then make a go at actually studying around Auguest/September or so, probably with practice tests. My vocab score wasn't so great, so maybe I'll go back and get a Vocab book. Vocab is crammable, I feel like. Part of the problem is I'm just busy with work, and I'm also learning Finnish, so that just limits me.

What's suprising to me is I got 26/60 on the listening. I swore I was blind guessing through that whole section, but I guess it wasn't as bad as all that? Not sure how this happened.

Listening was my best score too when I failed N2: I also thought I was guessing, so I was surprised that it was so good (relatively). I expect that I should be surprised that the other scores were so bad :-)

I felt every mistake on the language knowlege section, I know there were meanings and reading I just didn't know. The reading, maybe this is some kind of weird pychosis, but I just feel like I understood everything, and then I get a so-so score. I'm not completely clear myself what's going wrong.
