Thank you Streak Freeze!

Yesterday you saved my streak for the very first time. Bought a new one as soon as I realised that it had been used!

Please note that you do not get a notification about the fact that your Streak Freeze has been used. I also just set a daily reminder, reminding me if I haven't been practising by 8pm.

I used my streak freeze for the the first time on my 601st day. I had an unexpected long day at work and did not arrive home until after midnight. It was quite a relief to have the freeze. But I'm a bit disappointed that I had to use it.

Quite the esteemed commenting club above me ^^^^^

I don't know that I'd have much of any streak or care about streaks without the streak freeze. Real world has too many duties and responsibilities to maintain a streak without an occasional forgiveness the freeze provides. It is a good motivator with a reasonable accommodation for when your dog eats your homework.

Thanks for reminding us! I'll check my streak freeze right now, to see that it's still there.

Don't depend 100% on the daily reminder message, BTW. The one day I depended on it it did not come, and I lost a 182 day streak, just one day less than half a year.
