I think you're doing better than I did. I found it very difficult to keep track of who was who, especially in the 50s.

I am no longer going to post a picture of my Google Sheets because it is just getting too long. But, this week I had the most exposure to the language than any of the previous weeks. I was able to get 5.25 hours in. This week I was able to finagle my Fire Stick to get the French channels and with it came Arte, the Franco-German collaboration channel. Each program has a French and German version. This has given me the ability to switch between each of the languages when I want (obviously understanding more the French than the German). Along with Dark and the ARD app I have been exposing myself to a lot of native material and finding that I am understanding more and more.
I am thinking about starting a formal course, or continuing with Assimil this week because I want to iron out some of the 1. grammar points that I am unsure of and 2. some connecting words and prepositions in context.

Smooth sailing though

I'm definitely taking my time with it. I just got into the 2nd season and they've added even more timelines.

3.25 hours this week, nothing too serious but nothing too shabby considering the time I can dedicate to it. This week I looked into the DLI courses and am thinking about pursuing them. However, due to my limited time that I can dedicate to learning, I may save them for another language and keep going with Assimil and Pimsleur (two resources that I admittedly have not paid attention to in some weeks).

The past few weeks my main source of German has been through 1. native materials such as DW jetzt or podcasts 2. Dark on Netflix with the Language Learning with Netflix extension. This extension is one of my favorite things and has given me so many hours to exposure that I would have had trouble getting before.

I am also thinking about taking up some reading and grammar. Reading because it's fun, and grammar because I want to get some of the more formal grammatical points down, and because it's something I enjoy. I just need to find the energy to dedicate to some more engaged learning, not just passive. But I carry on
