Welcome to Frauke's journey.

Running into obstacles

Once the initial motivation has worn off, it is hard to stay focused. In the end, who would blame you if you just stopped? The nice thing about the headstart into a new topic is the immediate reward in the form of new knowledge, understanding formerly complicated looking things, and being able to brag about starting a new thing on the next party. After a while, everything is back to normal. Nobody will ask anymore and you are left alone with your motivation.
