February ReviewTarget hours:
Top three categories this month: TV/Film, reading, study. Yay! Got apps almost down to 10% too (10.39%).
Again, with my 365-day goal being reading, this month I've read:
- 247 pages in German.
- 13 pages in Mandarin.
- 98 pages in Spanish.
I read less than last month, but I've bumped up those Super Challenge listening figures: I watched 1,220 mins in German (nine full films) and 95 mins in Spanish (one film lol).
No writing, but onto that in a minute.Plan for March 2021
Rounding minutes per day to a set number of hours did not
work, sadly, so it's back to the drawing board a little. Like I put in my last post a few minutes ago, I'm working with Trello to set sprints, so hopefully focusing just on progressing through my coursebooks (in the case of Gàidhlig, Korean, Arabic in particular) will be enough to rack up the hours.
I'm also trailing wayyyyyy behind with the 6WC, so I'm gonna try and power through these last two weeks!
This month: I am hoping to hit a time goal for this - 20 hours across the month. I really enjoy studying once I get into it, it's just still finding the right space/headspace when I finish work; it's much easier to sit in front of the TV and not do it.
For German, I'm planning to watch one film per night until I'm all caught up with that part of the Super Challenge, and then just keep trucking. I'm also focusing on writing: I joined the subreddit r/WriteStreakGerman
and posted my first piece
there this evening. The best part is they only have to be short and, if I can't think of anything to write about, there's always a daily prompt to work from.
Spanish - once I've caught up with my German films, I'll move onto this.
Mandarin - I'd like to watch an episode of something a day. My motivation is really
lagging for all things Mandarin, but I think it's more because I'm not looking for chances to use it than because I can't do it or w/e. Just have to get motivated again!
Scottish Gaelic - I'm subscribed to LearnGaelic.scot's weekly newsletter, which comes in Gaelic and English, so I'd like to read through a couple of those a week.
Korean - technically I signed up for a half Super Challenge! I'd like to watch an episode of something a week - I started Kingdom, for instance, and it'll be nice to finish it.
For the fitness challenge
: I'm walking a lot, which wasn't my goal, but it's happening. I also saw a post on reddit from someone who's following the same splits routine I should be doing
and it seemed to work for her, which has encouraged me to start being more consistent with it. Hope it lasts more than two days!
Off to study now! (After I turn off YouTube...
