Dave's death made a convenient dividing line in my life.
On one side I was The Responsible One, but now that we are A.D.: After Dave, I am free to eat, spend, and drink irresponsibly.And you know what else? I don't have to improve my mind.
I haven't spent a moment learning Russian on DuoLingo since I went to Albuquerque. Horrors.
There have been consequences. Evidently my behavior is having negative effects. DuoLingo felt I needed an intervention and sent me this email.
Duolingo needs to get some perspective.
