I'm not Catholic but attending a Catholic high school has left me with certain traditions. One of which is Lent. For me, it's an opportunity to break old habits and give up something for 40 days.
This past month, my father and I gave up alcohol. Although admittedly, he did better than me. I had a weekend of wine tasting and a couple of drinks during dates but on the whole I was able to stick to my only one drink a night rule (excluding the aforementioned weekend).
So this month, with the beginning of lent, I have decided I am going to give up eating away from the dining room table. For example I will no longer be eating in front of my computer, while standing in the kitchen, or at my desk at work. The only place where food is allowed to be consumed in my apartment will be at my dining room table. We'll see how that goes as it gets mighty boring eating by yourself at a table set for one.
