Lent 2012

Lent is upon us, it seems. What will you not be doing?

Previous Lent posts here have been getting a lot of hits, as people start looking up what it’s like to give up the social networks for 40 days. Here’s the Lent list:

Almost There — Day 34/40 of Lent 2011

Day 35 — Angels (2010)

Let me give it to you: It’s hard at first, and you get withdrawal symptoms. That’s when you realize you’re addicted. Because you can’t stand not knowing what everyone is doing, or posting, and it’s a party that you’ve voluntarily locked yourself out of.

But it gets better. The real world is all there for you to rediscover, your friends never left, and they are only a phone call, a text message, or an email away.
