#Add1Challenge Day 30 Video, and burnout...

I should really take my own advice. I've pushed myself the last few weeks, spending far more time studying Russian than I can really cope with, and as a result I'm suffering from burnout. I've taken a week off, but I'm finding motivation in short supply. I'm hoping this is just a small blip, and by changing my routine I'll be able to get back in the saddle again. Even though I only talk a tiny bit of Russian in this video, I've made mistakes. Although I'm thinking it's a positive thing that I'm now noticing when I make mistakes (at least some of the time)! 


  1. I don't speak Russian, but I think you're doing great. You were stringing together a few sentences with a degree of fluency. Good call on making changes to avoid burnout. 90 days is both a sprint and a marathon. A sprint in the sense that you have to push yourself to meet your goal, but a marathon in the sense that 3 months is still a long time. Keep it up! Very impressed.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment and support :) ...taking a break from tutoring was definitely what I needed!
