Muy bien Mary. si sabes festejar estas "pequeñas cosas" siginifica que tienes en claro que la vida está formada de pequeños "hitos"... más hitos... más hitos... y que siempre tendremos uno adelante... HASTA EL PRÓXIMO HITO! marta

Congrats! How inspiring! Possibly TMI, but I am starting a journey of sobriety, and picking my language studies back up at the same time. Every day that I study, I know that I am healthy, rested, and clear-headed. Looking forward to hitting my own milestones!

March 15, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lakie2016

Your duo streak could double as your sobriety streak. I used to be part of an Al Anon group because of a family member and I know that it is important to follow the twelve steps. One day at a time. My aflicted relative is now 12 years sober and celebrates his "birthday" every year with family and members of his group at an open AA meeting. Wish you a long streak in duo and in sobriety!

March 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hjh414399

Well Duo and life have so much in common, eh? Just one day at a time and every day a success is a goal reached. You will have more support /encouragement from more people than you know. Just keep it up--one day, one step at a time!!

I have just only 100 days.. kkk

March 14, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lakie2016

Actually the 100 day streak was the most difficult as I faced so many challenges and wasn't very adept in use of various strategies to keep the streak going. I lost my streak at least 2 times before I reached 100. In the initial stages, in my effort to keep a streak going I spent good dollars at a Fedex office computer as my phone was not working. But eventually I had to lose the streak . But once I got into the groove I found it easier to keep the streak and here I am on 1000 days!.

March 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lakie2016

Well actually I think I lost a total of 21 days during the current streak but streak freeze kept my streak intact. Whenever I log in, I check to see that my streak freeze is ready to spring to my rescue should I miss a day.

It feels good, doesn't it? And you made me realize it's been nearly 3 years since I told myself I should stop being so lazy that I couldn't even manage one simple lesson a day.

I've missed a few. Streak freeze and one time PLUS saved it for me. I've never missed more than one day in a row though.

A 1000 days ago my spanish was almost zero. Now I can recognize a lot of words and can form sentences with the words that I know. The problem is in understanding others as they speak fast and/or use words I do not know.
