I'm giving up
Why has my 50 day streak gone back to 1 day when I have 8 hours left today!!!!!??? This has made be completely demotivated and I think I will stop using what was a good learning method
Sorry for my outburst :) you have all put me in my place! No I have been learning for a few years and DL was an extra learning tool. I just felt disappointed. My streak was definitely 50 days not 6 or else I would not have been so rash. I will continue with DL and thank you all for what have mostly been encouraging remarks.
Come on, don't allow yourself to think you can't continue. I think you're strong and you'll recover from this slip. Cheer up, and keep up your good work: Next goal, make it to a 100-day streak!! If you managed to get to 50, you can reach a 100-day streak, no problem. Btw, you could start another tree, to make your journey more entertaining, Duolingo is fun, not a chore!! And hey, just in case buy a Streak Freeze... ;-)
I also lost a 40-something day steak and I was kind of upset too, since I learn in fits and bursts most of the time and that took some planned and organized studying to accomplish, but don't be too upset! Streaks can always be rebuilt, and you'll likely be more careful in the next one.
