<p id="block-066ec7ba-726a-415b-ad91-22eb134e0b01">We&#8217;re heading into June with a Quest all about movement, exercise, and sports. This is something I&#8217;ve been working on for a little bit now and there&#8217;s a lot of carry-over between fitness and language. </p>

<p id="block-cfbe98bb-b865-4c1f-9ac4-29b39d492e69"><strong>Continue filling the gaps in my Mandarin vocabulary I&#8217;ve noticed since Little Linguist&#8217;s arrival.</strong> // We&#8217;re working on this and now that it&#8217;s summer we have a plan to dive in more fully.</p>

<p id="block-ccbb72a6-6e72-455b-b314-268575e7dc8d"><strong>Maintain my vocabulary learning streak + maintain my Duolingo learning streak.</strong> // Yes, I&#8217;m keeping this up daily with 700+ day streaks.</p>

<p id="block-197cac21-5360-4434-a733-6cd62186a6e0"><strong>Keep reading Game of Thrones in Russian</strong>. // Same as last month, I was on and off with this. To be honest, I&#8217;m struggling to adapt to the new LingQ interface. </p>

As I mentioned above, now that it&#8217;s summer, I have some plans to start to incorporate this more and I&#8217;m excited to see how it works out.</p>

<p id="block-f452304d-3f9f-4968-947b-c7570d9ad980"><strong>Maintain my vocabulary learning streak.</strong> // This has been a great way to rebuild my language routine, so it&#8217;s staying on the list indefinitely! I share my stats over on <a href="http://instagram.com/eurolinguiste" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Instagram</a> in my stories nearly every day, so if you&#8217;re ever curious about where I&#8217;m at, you can check out my stories.

<p id="block-bc8f8a5d-64d8-485b-a788-4270faeeedd3"><strong>Keep working through my YouTube Queue. </strong> // I&#8217;d like to keep reducing this down. I don&#8217;t have a specific number in mind for this month, but I don&#8217;t want it to creep back over 2,000.</p>

<p id="block-d47d1321-4830-4d64-aeb3-3f3777feee7d"><strong>Keep reading Game of Thrones in Russian</strong>. // I really want to get back into this.</p>

<h3 id="block-4ea92f0f-3e8d-4f70-84bd-59002554351a">The Biggest Lesson I Am Taking Away from This Month</h3>

<p>I don&#8217;t have a particular takeaway for this month. But I will share a valuable resource that&#8217;s been on my mind as of late. </p>

<p>If you haven&#8217;t read &#8220;Why We Sleep&#8221; by Matthew Walker, read it! Sleep is something I&#8217;ve been trying to prioritize lately and this book is a great read about just why sleep is so important.</p>
