If you can keep up your current pace, you will finish studying all the joyo kanji on 10 April 2025. Ganbatte!

Yikes!

I'll start increasing my lessons soon, but I'm studying other stuff along with this. It's just this is more structured.

Why not just focus on the basics.
These kanji are essential, something I've got to get a hold of. But I also have the book "Genki 1" that I use for basic study. My main problem relates to my living environment, everyone wants to speak English to me , sadly , including my Japanese wife.

八白   はっぴゃく     eight hundred
There is a mistake in this one.


Also, I recommend you include this in your list:

十九日

The reading is possibly a little tricky and unexpected, as it differs from the reading of 十九 .

Nope. Read joadbres-san's hint more carefully again.

十分    じゅっぷん or じゅっぷん
Those two readings are the same. Probably you wanted to say another reading for one of them, didn't you?

としとる 年取る to grow old
That's not wrong, but 年取る is far more common.

十九日    じゅうきゅうにち Is this correct: juukunichi じゅうくにち


十分    じゅっぷん or じゅっぷん   if there is another way to say it, currently I don't know it

Thanks, I didn't know about the を part.

Yes.

It can be read じっぷん. じゅっぷん is more common, though.

If you only knew one way to write it, why did you write the same thing twice, with an "or" in between? That makes no sense.

It would be like writing:

六月 ろくがつ or ろくがつ June

Actually I made a typo mistake. Should have wrote じゅぷん or じゅっぷん

There are two typos there; a simple typo and a misreading you are confusing with another reading.

休む      やすむ         to be absent, to rest
休み      やすみ         vacation, holiday, break absence
冬休み     ふゆやすみ       winter vacation
夏休み     なすやすみ       summer vacation
There also is a typo.

That's exactly the one I meant.:)
Hey folks, it was a mistake. Should have read 十日  とおか

I can't edit the post, but can a moderator do it for me, please. Thanks.
