Project 75 degrees and other unimportant things
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
I might as well say it here to hold myself accountable, but I've decided to give up chocolate for Lent. I haven't successfully given up anything for Lent since I was 18 and since I'm not Catholic, I'm hardly required to give anything up. But I kind of like the willpower challenge, as well as the reminder that we can live perfectly happy lives without certain luxuries in our lives. As a result, I've been drinking copious amounts of mint tea, in lieu of cocoa, to trick my palette into thinking I've had a treat. My cousin gave up beer for Lent and the two of us have never looked forward to Sundays so much in our lives.
