If you participate, what are you giving up for Lent?

I'm giving up these here forums for Lent. I spend a lot of time here so it would be a big sacrifice lol. I hope I'm more productive throughout Lent now that I'm researching grad schools and the GMAT and other things.

 

(Feel free to leave me tons of messages or notifications while I'm gone :) )

Starting on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a forty day period leading into the Easter Sunday. Catholics observe Lent as a way of both acknowledging sinfulness while striving toward the example of Christ, often by abstaining from what are otherwise considered luxuries. We're also called to abstain from eating meat on Fridays during the Lenten season as well as fasting on certain days (such as Ash Wednesday).

 

I honestly haven't fully decided what I will do for Lent this year. I'm eager to go to confession, first and foremost; I want to do that as soon as possible.

I'm given up Lent for Lent ;)

 

Actually, I don't participate in any sort of "on X day, make a positive change in your life", like new years resolutions and similar. I'll make a positive change in my life when I'm damn well ready. I respect those who do, though :)

 

And I'm also atheist, so I'm under no religious obligation to participate in these kind of things.

Learn the ways of Rarity and cast off Trixie as your goddess.

Psht, Like that'll ever happen.

 

But seriously, I'll miss you. :( But do the synchtube parties count as the forums or not? Please tell me they don't!

i can google trixie again, that should keep you entertained

Please don't the pain of this is already terrible enough, I don't need the love of my life receiving slander from a search engine.

Giving up the forums for lent? You're going hardcore I see :P

 

I'm gonna fast for the most part. In addition to no meat on Friday, I'm only going to have one meal.

does that exclude fish? i heard some where that some people dont count fish as meat

 

Fish is an exception.

I'm going for the healthy approach so as to give another purpose for my fasting rather than just religious obligations.

 

- No meat

- mandatory daily exercise

- veggies all the way

- no liquor

- more books, less T.V.

- more classical music, less metal music

- no mp3 players
