... Three years ago, in the boondocks of Lugo province, Spain, on a journey with my father to trace his grandfather's roots... Still seems like yesterday... In many ways it was only yesterday...

Don't despair over past streaks... Look forward to the future ones! :-D

Yup, I lost mine, a 50+ one which I'd started when I first downloaded the app, because of Duolingo's weird ways of handling time zones, at Christmas 3+ years ago. My graph still showed that I had practiced every day, as indeed I had.

I had no streak freeze in place, because I was practicing every day. I've got one now... :-p

I lost my last one when a football european championship game went into overtime.

Yes, I deserved that streak loss.

I know :-)

(On the other hand, there's the consideration of how long streak one can have before it becomes (even more) embarrassing that one does this one thing every single day... Apparently, three years is not enough, but maybe five? Maybe that will be the time to retire from here.)

I bet losing that 103-day streak is nothing to you nowadays considering that you now have a day streak of 1178. Just try NOT to lose this one. :)

I think the maximum day streak that I have lost was about 20 days. Now look at my day streak. :)
