Thinking of what to do this year was difficult. Although I am far, far, far away from being a saint . . . I do not have the traditional vices that people automatically think of giving up for lent (translate: I am pretty boring). I hardly drink, go shopping, or even drink caffeine. The things I need to do more of are already part of my new year's resolution: exercise at least days a week, watch only an hour of tv a day. Also, my mini-computer crash/epiphany helped me cut down on my biggest vice: wasting time on the computer. I do not use my laptop at school anymore which means no web browsing during class and hardly ever going on facebook. Finally, I have to be realistic. As much as I want to go do more volunteer work, I know it will not happen right now.
So what do I have left?
- No sweets, cheese, or snacking (except fruits, nuts, veggies). I would like to say I cook healthy meals but these are my downfalls.
- Less thinking negatively about people. Maybe it is something about being a third year who has been around the same people for what seems like an eternity, but I get easily annoyed at people. Even if I do not vocalize most of it, it is just time to let it go.
