40 days and 40 nights

Today is 2/13/2013. I’ve always found a fascination with dates when they coincide with the year. I will have to wait for thousands of years before my birthday matches with the year… I digress. Today is also Ash Wednesday, and Lent begins. For 40 days, people abstain from something until Easter. Although I am not Catholic and do not observe Lent, I like a challenge and I resolve to abstain from YouTube for the duration of Lent. 40 days and 40 nights without YouTube. It’s going to be harder than I imagine it to be; I just know it. The past…month? few months? (long time)…I’ve been on YouTube every single day. Music videos, watching vlogs, silly pointless videos, YouTube is one of the tabs that I constantly have open on my browser, especially when I’m studying. One video always always always lead to another. It’s too bad that I do not know how to block websites using Google Chrome, but that will just intensify the challenge of self-control. Sad to say, I’m not very good at self-control, which is all the more reason for me to do this! So for more than a month, I will abstain from YouTube. Just in time for me to crack down on studying for my chemistry midterm tomorrow! I should think that publicizing it should help me do it… and all the best for whatever you may be abstaining from for the next 40 days and nights until Easter!
