And I'll use facebook posts, songs, blogs, vlogs, basically whatever I can come across and what interests me, as my materials. This random approach worked best for me in the past.
I've come to the same realisation. For the past two days I've been doing half an hour of learning out of the textbook and then half an hour to an hour of learning from native audio and video (for now mostly songs and this guy). I used to try to power through the textbook, doing an entire chapter in a day (including putting the words into Memrise), but I think this combined method is much more effective and allows me to spend more time on it on balance. This plus the pomodoro method and regular exercise have really cut my procrastination dramatically.
This is great, thanks for sharing.
