It’s really about time. I’ve only had a lifetime subscription forever.
To be fair, almost always my excuses for quitting boil down to putting myself in a situation where I think it’s ok to skip a day, then soon the routine is broken, and then once again I’m left sitting at work wondering why I’m not studying Japanese.
Now’s the time, though! I bought the house. I got the married. There’s little in my life to distract me in the way of “you have to think of/do this right now.” And that will let me build my routine up so that it becomes more permanent.
I definitely understand how easy it is to slip, though. I’ve been working on a translation of a drama series, and whenever I finish a week’s worth of episodes, I congratulate myself with a couple of days off. In no time at all, however, a couple of days apruptly turns into a couple of months…
I’m trying to prevent the “congratulating oneself by taking days off” thing from happening. I’m being a bit more involved in pacing this time around, which help. I’ve been here for a little over five years now. Gotta get that progress.
