I am proud of my streak
I have decided not to continue any further because I felt as if I was pressured to go onto the Internet daily. I feel burned out after 500 days. I am incredibly grateful that Duolingo helped me with language learning.
I did plan to end the streak beforehand. Despite knowing that I wanted to do so, I do feel slightly sad because I have been on Duolingo for such a long time. However, I also feel liberated, especially when I have been involved in other things that required coming onto the Internet daily. I would like to take a break from Duolingo.
It would be nice if longest streaks were recorded on our profiles. I sure hope this will be implemented in the future.
I am going to start engaging in the culture for language learning, especially watch my favorite shows dubbed in that particular language, in addition to Duolingo.
Not sure whether you're aware of the Streak Hall of Fame, it's for people who have a 365+ day streak. I looked, and didn't see your name. In order to join, the list is updated on Sundays, but you have to sign up on a different post, and still be active on Sunday. Here is the sign-up post, if you're interested: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13152151
And if you're interested, you'll end up with a few more days than 500. Best wishes. :)
