so before, i start on this paper on tracking (which i'm actually excited to write), i just wanted to comment a little bit about this new "Lent" season.
this school year/ semester, i've attempted to make a lot of changes in my life. some successful. some failures. some are works in progress.
as some folks know, Lent is a time where us Catholics are supposed to give up something. today being Ash Wednesday, it was kinda the deadline (man, this whole fasting thing hurts my stomach). i had no clue what to give up. talking to my good friend charles about it, he made me realize that its not about giving something up for the sake of giving it up, but to make changes in your life that are long lasting and for the better. i was talking to melissa about it in the car and we agreed to make a list of things that we want to improve on.
while i still intend on doing that, something kind of dawned on me. there is something i want to give up. not so much give up, but to let go and/ or clarify. i don't want to spell it out too much nor do i wanna be super cryptic about it. but while i've been trying to do an overall "cleansing" of my life the past year, its time to do so on another level in my life. a more focused one. i'm sure for most of you, it will not have an affect. but for me, this is something important to my overall personal development.
with that said, its time to make a separate list.
but until then. its time to write a paper. and to finally eat a freakin' meal!
