I found a big treasure of mine

Many years ago, my now ex-girlfriend made a Duolingo owl for me, since she knew how much I love Duolingo. Back then, I was living in my home country. Now, I don't live there anymore, and while I was in the process of moving, I lost my dear owl and I miss it so much!
To be honest, I forgot about that owl until I was checking some photos on my computer and voilĂ ! I found this.

Imgur

This will not change the fact that I don't have this pretty owl with me anymore, but at least I can print this photo to put it on my desk (?)

Thanks for reading.

Old but gold. Although your Duo is not green, it is golden like gold. It reminds me, good memories always are gold. I am happy because of you. Thanks for shairing

What is old, can be gold. By Khakban, I was told, memories, are the finest gold.

I know what it feels like to have something precious and has many memories with it be lost forever. To this day, I think about it. When I see, through your words, how much that owl meant to you, I am happy and sad at the same time for you. I don't have a memo for that special thing that I lost. Cherish this memo as long as you possibly can. It is not something that can be replaced or forgotten.

What a marvelous idea! I enjoy the company of 3 artists in my house and wonder if one of them could make an Owl for me...

How you can learn languages on the same site about five years? That's insane. Are you work with foreign languages every day on your work or what? Too interesting for me cause I like learn languages too, but this situation kinda strange for me <3

Funnily enough, my Duolingo Swedish course is very fond of quoting examples of owls in Swedish! All power to you!!!

Hah... I thought I was the only one who had a Duolingo owl made for me... My girlfriend made one for me as well :). I guess we're lucky to have wonderful girlfriends.

You've studied so many languages. Do you ever forget them over time or do you just practice each one like weekly?
