I don't think you need to worry about that.


Good news: your calculations are off, and your score is higher than you think! Each day missed is -1, and calculated the way you have it, you're calculating each day missed as -2.

Here are the corrected calculations:

Mandarin (Specific) - January
2020-01-01 to 2020-01-31
Days studied: 28
Days missed: 3
Score for this interval: 25 = 28 - 3
Cumulative score: 25

Mandarin (Specific) - February
2020-02-01 to 2020-02-29
Days studied: 21
Days missed: 8

Cumulative score: 38 = 25 + 13

Taiwanese Minnan, Ancient Greek (Generic) - January
2020-01-01 to 2020-01-31
Days studied: 10
Days missed: 21

Thanks to this challenge, I could listen an interview of polyglot Dmitri Petrov (Дмитрий Петров) on Radio Mayak (Радио Маяк) yesterday and comprehend much. It was a huge confidence booster and my wife was impressed as well. If the momentum continues for the remaining nine months, I believe I shall be able to read, without much difficulty, Lao She's novel 猫城记 in its Russian translation, Записки о кошачьем городе, before the end of 2020.

Благодарю Седже!
