  5. One year streak!

One year streak!

I hit my one year streak today in Portuguese. And to think... I only started out to just get a feeling for the language. My goal has primarily been reading, as opposed to speaking, and duo has been great for that. Next up is finishing the tree and all the stories.

But.. now with the year streak out of the way, I think I'll let it expire. At times it feels like I'm a prisoner to the streak, and honestly, I could do to simplify a bit and have one less thing to keep track of.

That's my feeling. The last straw was on a recent trip where my laptop basically died at the hotel (thank you Windows Update), and I couldn't remember my PW to log into duo on my phone. Eventually I did remember it. But it was stressing me out that I would lose the streak when I was so close to one year. At that point I decided... I just don't need that extra stress in my life.

Congratulations on your one year streak. In order not to make it too complicated I have set the minimum target of 10XP per day and I bought the streak freeze. When I am still up and running after midnight I get my XPs before going to sleep. Usually i get my XPs in the morning before work. It has become a habit and it doesn't feel as something i must do, i just want to. I have lost my streak twice with over 200 days, but I survived. It is not a big deal.

Good job!

And buy streak freezes when you feel too tired or not motivated enough to practice Portuguese on Duolingo. ;)
