To sum it up succinctly, it has been a failure.
Yes, I’m speaking more German at the office, but that is about it. All my other grand plans have fallen by the wayside. The main reason for that is that I’ve barely spent any time in Hamburg this month. I’ve seemed to have spent the whole of October taking long weekends away to places where I only speak English.
However, this is just an excuse as is the excuse that I’ve been absolutely exhausted for most of the month and therefore didn’t have the mental energy to do my Anki cards every day and read German books and watch German TV. All just excuses.
But now it is a new month and a good time to get re-committed and re-focused. Hopefully the second month of my challenge will be more successful than the first.
