Lent came barreling up to me this year! One second it’s a normal day and the next second, boom, logging off Facebook.

Facebook is this ongoing issue for me, especially recently. Last year I gave it up with such grace and ease like I was this big Facebook sacrificing angel.

This year God puts me to the test, can I make this sacrifice even though I don’t feel thoroughly invested?

It seems silly to make a big deal over this. Facebook gives me this forum to mindlessly relax while feeling mildly passively connected to everyone I ever knew. I defend this because the problem makes me feel lame.

Im not adding anything this year. I’ve just taken on a whole slew of new good habits this month – the writing, the music, the Spanish , the confession.. my goal will  be to keep it all going.

I have to keep in mind I’m making this sacrifice to be free from a (seemingly benign) chain, so I can have more time for my hobbies.

  1. The litany against FB
    I must not FB.
    FB is the mind-killer.
    FB is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my FB.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the FB has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain–
    — ooooo, shiny!
