Lent resolutions

I don't really do New Years Resolutions, 365 days is just asking to screw up so I do Lent, 40 days is a lot more manageable. For the past two or so years I have given up Mt. Dew. And I do REALLY well and then once Easter gets here I celebrate with a dew. I've realized that Dew gives me headaches, I know just quit drinking it, well I think I'm almost there.

This year for lent I really wanted a challenge so I chose 3 or so 'resolutions' for the next 40 days.
1. No carbonation
2. No eating at places with a drive thru
3. Be LESS shy

I'm doing well on some and others are proving to be more difficult. I have gone to ward activities a few times by myself, and realized I have a lot more friends than I thought I did. Its scary to walk in by myself, and Ive wondered the halls for about 10 minutes or so working up the courage to go in, but Ive done it. I have a friend who never meets a stranger, but also makes you feel like you are the only person there. I don't know how she does it. Well last night was no exception, we were moving from activity to activity, she wondered off to talk to other friends, while I was there standing by myself(PANICKING) remaining calm, working on not constantly being in a group and another friend came over and just starting chatting. I am thankful for friends. I also received to complements from strangers last night, that I have amazing calves, and I have an attractive/sweet voice. Humm, who knew.

I think they are hot too, untanned. Tanning gives you cancer. Cancer is bad. :)
