Learning the Spanish Language — Project Day 26

On balance, a disappointing day.

Never really got into the groove on Spanish and lacked motivation generally.

Poor quality sleep and the absence of any novel/compelling learning target were probably the major factors.

That said, got more tasks done than average, albeit ploddingly.



  1. Got up on time
  2. Stuck to routine until teatime


  1. Spanish work was perfunctory
  2. Didn't ride
  3. General lack of focus
