It's lent! It's been lent for a while already. Ahem. I don't care that my post is not on time!

Since it's lent, I'm fasting. Not so much for any religious achievement, but more for a challenge. Each year I try to get rid of something in my life that is quite dear to me. Just to see how it goes. But this something almost never belongs to the department of food. I have so many restrictions what I can eat and can not eat and how I can only eat x in combination with y, that I'm kinda happy I don't starve. So fasting on food doesn't happen.

This year I decided to quit watching videos on my laptop. I don't own a TV, so watching stuff is only possible through my window and on my laptop. And it takes way too much time, I decided. I love me some japanese dorama, but I wondered what I will do once I can't watch videos anymore. So I decided to try it out. Lent is supposed to be a challenge, I think.

It's fukken hard. I really miss it. I have deprivation symptoms all the time. So I think it was a very good idea to quit watching videos for a while. It's really a challenge for me. For me, the addict. Seriously, I didn't know it was so bad. Like, I switch on the laptop and have no idea what to do with it. Other than watching something (which is right out now) or working on my bachelor thesis. The very good thing: I get a lot more done than usual.

I think I will spend Easter watching the whole Komyo ga Tsuji at once. All 49 episodes. I'm gonna die.


  1. Famine and then feast...:)

    Easter is gonna be a marathon orgy of video after video sweet drama action!!!

    The mean thing is that I have to work on my bachelor thesis during and after Easter, too. Meh. Not sure how to put all of this together. :-/
    Anyhow, a marathon it will be! :-D

  3. Oh my heavens! That's a hard one! I watch all my American shows on my laptop, I don't know if I could give it up. I would need so many books and magazines on standby!

    So you're addicted, too. The first step is to admit this to yourself. ;-)
