A Catholic blogger I read whose name is Vito, author of the blog Stumbling After Francis: Learning to Live a Capuchin Life, published a blog entry post about his decision to not go online during Lent. I really admire his decision and I honestly don't think I'd be able to do it. The Internet is a big part of my life. I access music, movies, blogs, receive updates from my family and friends, and do my finances online. There's other things I use the web for that I'm no doubt forgetting.
I'm not affiliated with a church at the moment, so I'm not sure if I am even eligible for participating in Lent, but just the same I'm going to give up meat on Fridays and give up sugary foods. Now obviously I'm not going to be able to remove ALL sugars from my diet, but I will eliminate the ones that are nothing but sugar, like candy, soda, Red Bull, etc. Basically junk food is what I'm removing. I hope I can do it. This should be interesting. I'll post updates on my progress.
I'm single so I won't be doing anything special for Valentine's Day, but I'd like to watch a romantic movie. When I was at the grocery store I bought some chocolate-covered strawberries 'cuz I was in the mood.
I love to read and write blogs. I was born into a Protestant family, but I'm very interested in learning more about Catholicism. In this blog I will discuss whatever is on my mind, so the topics will be diverse.
