Let's talk abouuuuuut Lent!

Hello, it's been a while, I'm sorry!

Not that sorry though.

Anyway, Lent! Lent-y Lent-y Lent.
I'm not Christian or anything, but I like to give stuff up for Lent just to prove I can, and that I'm not dependant on anything.
And also because being the martyr is fun.

So I've given up chocolate (relatively easy) the vending machine (medium difficulty) and coke (LITERALLY THE HARDEST THING EVER.)
Seriously, though, I am a Diet Coke fiend, and I really, really miss it.

But it's teaching me lots of things about self-restraint and how I don't need coke to be happy so it's all good :)

This is a short post, because it's nearly one in the morning, but I have another one lined up in my mind...

Anyway, what are you giving up for Lent this year? Have you given up yet?

Oh, and P.S., my thoughts are with those people affected by the Japanese earthquake right now. Plus those caught up in the Libyan Civil War, and everyone in the world who isn't as fortunate as I am to live in a stable, safe home with my high-speed wifi and endless amounts of breadsticks. Seriously, though. Such a tragedy. So shocking.

Giving up chocolate last year felt like the longest 40 days evar. I'm trying to kick the habit of biting my nails this Lent. . .it's pretty hard but I haven't broken it yet :D
