Day 4; Lent

Not having a mobile phone is beginning to show it’s difficulties. Not being able to contact people who don’t have a social networking site is near to impossible. I’ve been getting friends to text them for me then direct message me on Twitter about the other person’s reply. Haha.

Slightly struggling but I know I can last. It’s also helping me pay more attention to other things such as homework and family. I don’t just whip out my phone and send out a tweet when I find myself without a thing to do, instead I find a book to read or find things to talk about—or remain quiet and enjoy the silence. (Not that I never used to do that but I tended to spend heaps of time being distracted by my phone and whatnot before being productive).

My brother faced temptations today. He gave up sweets and at a friend’s house they had Leche Flan—(something similar to Creme Caramel). Leche Flan is both our favorite Filipino dessert so I can imagine how much it bothered him to not have eaten even a bite of it. Sucks but I am proud of him for being able to stick to his promise this Lenten season :-)

How’s it going for you guys?
