I only have a little while left in Lent, thank God. The toll this runs on my willpower leaves me pretty drained and grumpy during the last couple weeks. Not being able to do anything for my birthday, which falls in the middle of Lent, because I’ve given up everything I’d want to do is pretty much the breaking point.

There are so many videogames I want to play/ need to finish right now. I wanted to beat Dragon Age this weekend, but Ryan ruined my plans by buying a Wii. So it’s Mario instead. So instead we have to beat Mario this week, so that by the weekend I have time to beat Dragon Age and can then move onto one of the eight other games I need to beat.

It has come to this. I will no longer be hanging out with my friends ever again.
