Another year, another last-minute decision as to what I'm giving up for Lent. I need to think about these things a little bit harder before Fat Tuesday.
After an extra-indulgent Fat Tuesday lunch at the local soul food restaurant, I'd prefer to just give up food altogether. I'm thinking that's probably not a great idea. I really don't have any particular food- or beverage-related vices that would constitute a sacrifice were I to give them up. All in moderation.
The thing is, I know exactly what I should give up, and that is Facebook, Twitter or (GASP!) blogging. Or get rid of my Treo.
I just don't know if I can.
The Treo is here to stay because I need it for work. Blogging is my hobby. Twitter and Facebook are my connection to the outside world (and often how I manage to make plans for the weekend). But they all eat up a larger chunk of my time than they should because I'm addicted to them like crack.
So here's what I'm thinking: I either limit my Facebook time to an hour window every night. Or I stop using my Treo to Twitter or access Facebook and e-mail.
What do you think, Modern Friends?
