2016 January Jumpstart Challenge

    <h1>January Jumpstart Challenge</h1>

    What is the January Jumpstart Challenge?{@style=color : Teal}

    As a jumpstart to the New Year, I have decided to start a new collection of monthly challenges! They are called the Monthly Jumpstart Challenge. Below is the calendar of what we will be doing this month, every day.

    This is the January calendar. Each day there will be a different challenge, you have to do. You do not have to do the challenge every day, but it’s encouraged to. There will be 4 teams, with 4 team captains already chosen.

    In order to join… {@style=color : Teal}

    • You must have at least a 15 day streak (No exceptions)

    • You must not be a slacker

    • You must follow this post, or somehow be able to check this post every day for post notifications, and to check the current day’s challenge.

    • There are no fees, but you are welcome to donate lingots. (The prizes will be 300+ lingots, depending on how hard you work, and will be raised if a big increase of members drop out.) Prizes can go up to 1000 lingots! Top 3 will get put first on the next month waiting list.

    • No bad sportsmanship, no blaming team members

    • This is optional, but I recommend you follow your team leaders for updates.


    There will be 4 teams, members are randomly chosen. There are sister teams. ***Sister teams are where two teams team up, to form “allies”. There are a few daily challenges with sister teams. Because you need to pair up with someone else on your sister team, please read the following.

    <h1>If you are Member 5, you will team up with Member 5 on your sister team for ALL challenges</h1>

    Team A {@style=color : Crimson}

    Team B {@style=color : Indigo}

    Member 1 (A) teams up with Member 1(B) for the first challenge

    For the first challenge, you team up with the same member on your sister team. So if you are member 3, you team up with member 3 on your sister team.

    Member 1 (A) teams up with Member 2 (B) for the second challenge

    For the second challenge, you team up with the different member on your sister team. So if you are member 3, you team up with member 4 on your sister team. Member 4 pairs up with member 3 on the other team. Member 2 pairs up with member 1 on the other team.

    Member 1 (A) teams up member 3 (B) on the sister team.

    For the third challenge, you team up with the different member on your sister team. So if you are member 3, you pair up with member 1 on your sister team. Member 2 pairs up with member 4.

    Member 1 (A) teams up with member 4(B)

    For the last challenge, you team up with the member you have not teamed up yet, on your sister team. So if you are member 3, you pair up with member 2.

Sono stata a Napoli e a Roma l'anno scorso. È stata una gita bellissima, ma troppo corta. Oltre a imparare le lingue, mi piacciono il calcio, il basket, la musica e la lettura. La mia squadra di calcio preferita è il Barcellona, mentre i miei cantanti preferiti sono Il Volo e Tiziano Ferro.

In particolare i miei genitori, che lavorano sodo per assicurare che io e miei fratelli andiamo bene a scuola e che ci sia sempre cibo in tavola ogni sera e che tutti siano felici. Secondo, i miei amici, che sono completamente pazzi, ma sempre pronti a offrire il loro aiuto e sostegno.

            Can I join for a future month?

            And is it possible to follow along with the challenge as if I were "auditing" a university course? In other words, not getting credit but doing the challenges as best I can (except those that involve partners since I won't have one of those :p).

            I was added, so here it goes.

            And in Russian:

            ты помнишь день (это солнечный день)? / когда ты приходи́л мне, я говори́л никто могли заменять тебя / А исли ты больно (исли ты больно) / Hа то, что я говорю / Я могу класть эта улыбка на лице

Ronald Weasley, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, sees himself standing alone, the best of all of them. However, this mirror will give us neither knowledge or truth. Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible.”

            Russian: “Он показывает нам только нас глубокое и самые отчаянные желания. Ты, кто никогда не знал вашей семьи, ви́дишь их стоя вокруг тебя. Роналд Уизли, кто всегда было омрачено его братья, видит себя стоял один, лучший из всех из них. Однако, это зеркало даст нам ни знаний, ни истины. Мужчины чахнуят перед ним, очарован, что они видели. они были сделаны сумасшедший, не зная, если он показывает реальные или возможно даже.”

                    „Können Sie denken, was der Spiegel von Erised zeigt uns allen?“ Harry rüttelte seinen Kopf. „Lassen Sie mich erklären. Der glücklichste Mann auf Erde würde in der Lage sein, den Spiegel von Erised wie, das heißt, würde er es untersuchen und genau sehen, wie er ist. Tut diese Hilfe. „Harry-Gedanke. Dann sagte er langsam, „er zeigt uns, was wir… wünschen, was auch immer wir wünschen…“ „Ja und Nr.,“ sagte Dumbledore ruhig. „Es zeigt uns nichts mehr oder weniger als der tiefste, hoffnungsloseste Wunsch unserer Inneren. Sie, das nie Ihre Familie gekannt haben, sehen sie, um Sie zu stehen. Ronald Weasley, der immer von seinen Brüdern überschattet worden ist, selbst alleine stehend, das Beste von alle. Jedoch gibt dieser Spiegel uns weder Wissen oder Wahrheit. Männer haben weg vor ihm vergeudet, hingerissen durch, was sie gesehen haben oder gewesen angetriebenes wütendes, nicht wissen, wenn, was es zeigt, real oder sogar möglich ist. „Der Spiegel wird auf ein neues Haus morgen, Harry verschoben, und ich bitte Sie nach ihm wieder, zu suchen nicht zu gehen. Wenn Sie überhaupt über es laufen, werden Sie jetzt vorbereitet. Es tut nicht, um auf Träumen zu bleiben und zu vergessen zu leben, erinnern Sie sich an das. Jetzt warum nicht tun Sie, setzen sich Sie dass bewundernswerte.

                      "C'est vrai?" il dit. "Ils disent tout le long du train que Harry Potter est dans ce compartiment. Donc, il est vous, est-il?" "Oui," Harry dit. Il regardait les autres garçons. Deux d'entre eux étaient trapu et ressemblait gardes du corps. "Oh, c'est Crabbe et c'est Goyle," dit le garçon pâle négligemment, remarquant où Harry recherche. "Et je m'appele Malfoy, Draco Malfoy."

                      I'm sure there are a lot of mistakes in there, please, if you notice anything, let me know.

                      Day 28
                      Almost done! Ma personne préférée (pour le moment) est Annie (AnIsAKitten). Elle est une personne très agréable et une bonne amie. Elle a inventé une famille de Duolingoers, et a beaucoup de frères et sœurs. Elle est ma grand-mère dans cette famille. Elle refuse de pratiquer ses échelles autant que je lui dis de. Elle apprend le japonais, le gallois, et néerlandais.

                      Day 29

Ich hoffe to Deutschland besuch wenn ich älter bin. Ich bin sehr hoch (is that the right word? Maybe groß, but I'm not, like, big or anything) für mein alter (Ich bin 5' 5 1/2'' bereits, sorry I just can't use the metric system XD) Ich auch liebe Duolingo! Es ist sehr Spaß! Mein Tor für Duolingo ist ebene 25 erreichen im Deutsch. Und... das ist alles!

                                      I probably have tons of mistakes in that but I'm surprised how little I had to use Google Translate! I'm getting better!

                                        Unfortunately I do not have a 15 day streak. Also, the teams filled up fast!

                                        I'm interested to see how the Duo competitions are faring nowadays. I'd love to see Mod vs. Mod make a comeback at some point!

                                          If it's okay to make a correction, I want to say that in your third sentence it needs to be J'aime, not Je aime.
