I have already attempted to learn Emacs in previous years multiple times
and have always got back to using nano/micro in the terminal
or using geany/atom/gedit on the GUI.
I have missed all the previous GNU Emacs series you have taken and I
might miss the one tomorrow as well, as It falls during my office hours.
I read about you taking the series on GNU Emacs on the IRC channel.
So four days back I just gave a search for Emacs on YouTube just before
sleeping and I came across this particular video. 
and It re-ignited my interest in Emacs.
This time I decided to give a few weeks dedicated to Emacs.
As Yoda says
*“Do. Or do not. There is no try.” - Yoda
*So I make sure to use Emacs whenever I can.
**so I took a few tutorials from YouTube and also the default tutorial
which is there when you start Emacs.
It is a bit of thing to learn all these new shortcuts.
I also printed out the GNU Emacs reference card  and I keep this at
my work desk and carry another print with me all the times which I keep
reading during my travels.
I have been using it for a few days now and the experience so far has
been a mix of good and bad things.
//*I understand that learning new habits and forgetting the old one will
take some time. And I understand that all this effort will pay off in
the long term.
I just wanted to say thanks to you for taking the series, even though I
wont be attending it, but I hope more people will discover GNU Emacs
because of your efforts.
