      What part of Lent do you not like exactly? The meatless Fridays? The (almost constant) prayer in church on Fridays (along with Sundays)? lol. I can’t really do everything because of my work schedule, but I do what I can to make up for them. I read Bible readings for those days on my Kindle instead of going to church (I have work on Sundays).

      LOL thank you. It’s somewhat unorthodox but it’s something fresh, so to speak. ^^ And thanks! ^_^

    This is really excellent and a really innovative idea. :)

    I hate to say this, but I notice some people take the bare minimum route and think this is enough to complete their life. I also think we, in the Western world, can be a little too privileged. It’s why I request around Christmas and my birthday that no one give me any gifts for the sake of it. If it’s something I need or could use, that’s great. But if you have extra money and feel the need to get me something “just because” (just because you think you need to spend money on me), I think that money would be better spent on someone who needs something.

      True that (about people taking the bare minimum and the Western world being a little too privileged). There were a few times where I did not get any of my family presents because of my financial budget on Christmas (and sometimes on birthdays), but the good thing about them is that they don’t really expect me to give them anything in exchange (though that’s partially a lie because at times I can tell (my sisters especially) that they keep on hinting that they want something, but on denial at the same time).

      Personally, if people would want to give me something, maybe just money or gift cards to bookstores or even Amazon and I’ll just get the stuff I need/want. I love books, art stuff, and anything practical to my needs and my wants also. The problem is, not everyone in my family (or my real life friends for that matter) even understands the hobbies that I’m into except for books and traditional art stuff. I say this because most of the time the family always gives me the same things that I don’t necessarily need/like, such as clothes (for four years in a row, my sister in L.A. gave me a beanie-scarf matching set) or perfume/cologne (when I barely wear any scents at all except for a few fruit/light-scented scents). :(
