Streaks are weird. We have an overwhelming desire to maintain them. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but ultimately, who really cares?
This is day 46 on 200WAD for me, which means day 47 on Makerlog.
For me, these streaks don't have the same value.
My 200WAD's streak is a symbol of my continuous writing progress and I've found value in keeping up the habit, improving my writing and overcoming my fears of sharing content by keeping it small.
My Makerlog streak was an accountability exercise to achieve the same goal, but with development and side projects. It's not turned out that way. I've kept that streak alive by adding 200WAD articles as a task. It's a fake streak, which I should have lossed. It's not been possible for me to work sometimes, I have a desktop and sometimes I'd rather hang out with my partner. It's easy enough to pull out a laptop and do 200WAD, but going to the other room and putting even just 1 hour a side to work hasn't been top of my priority - and in this context, I have no interest in it being.
That being said, I do want to buy a development laptop. I'd love to work more, but I like to be able to hang out with my partner while she watches terrible TV in the evening.
