lent number two preliminaries

lent is coming up in under a month. there are several options that i'm toying around with in my head for what i'm planning on giving up, but the problem is that most of them are too specific; the thing that made last year's lent successful was giving up something that was important for the big picture but wasn't so restrictive to cause lack of practicality when necessary.

but with that model in mind, it shouldn't be too difficult to tweak a few of the specific ideas to have that same sort of flexibility. as an example, one of the ideas i'm toying with is "no internet other than work, email, and livejournal" but i don't necessarily want to *cut* time i spend on other websites such as facebook or youtube, i just want to restrict them, and the big picture Goal of doing such a thing doesn't mean that much unless i replace that filled time with things that i feel have more value as opposed to less.

we'll see. i still have other ideas that i'm teetering back and forth on. in the end it may be determined by weighted coin toss.
