So. Happy Ash Wednesday everyone.
If you haven't been around for a couple days, DON'T SCROLL DOWN IT GETS UGLY. Just keep your hot little eyes trained right here.
I'm not Catholic. I'm not a recovering Catholic. I've never wished that I was Catholic.
(I don't even believe that Jesus Christ is my personal lord and savior. SHHHHH!)
But, I have a habit of giving something up for Lent. I feel like it's a good amount of days to make myself kick a habit/test my dependency on things. Past sacrifices have included drinking, dairy, deep-fried-fill-in-the-blank and chocolate. I try not to repeat. Last year I declared that I was giving up meat for Lent. I didn't eat any on Wednesday, or Thursday. On Friday, I had a bacon cheeseburger for lunch.
This year I'm just not sure. I can't think of anything really awful that I'm doing (that I'm willing to stop doing for 40 days). And I don't WANT to fail, so I know better than to say I'm going to give up caffeine or something. That's frankly not doable.
