    I've decided to participate in Lent this year. I haven't for a few years and felt like I had missed out so this year I'm jumping on board. I wasn't sure what to give up though - lots of things are going around, like giving up something computer/internet related, which in all honesty would make me crazy - facebook is the number one way of keeping in touch with people for me! I didn't want to do something like give up chocolate because in the past when I've done that then as soon as lent's over I go into a diabetic coma from gorging myself on sweets (okay I've never been in a coma but you know what I mean). So this year I'm doing 2 things, the first is giving up eating anything after 8 pm which is partly a health thing but also i find that is the time when I feel the most out of control with eating. The second is that I'm trying to stop swearing. Anyone who doesn't hear me speak every day might be surprised that this is somethign i have to give up, however unfortunately I swear like a sailor now...lol I hear it all day every day at work and it's embedded itself not only into my language but into my thinking. So I am really going to try and cut this out, although just today I've swore out loud 6 times so I'm not doing great. But I imagine it will take time :)

    About Me

    Name: jamie
    Home: St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
