Currently: March 2017 || also Lent 2017, in which I have no idea what to do but want to do it anyways because that’s me

Aaand, it’s another Currently post on the first of the month! This month’s host are: Anne and Carrie!

This month’s prompts are: watching, eating, saying, wearing, and posting! Incidentally, these prompts are almost all things that I’m giving up on for Lent, so I’ll talk about that as well.

In case you didn’t know, Lent is the forty days before Easter, which begins on Ash Wednesday (today; also why it’s called that I don’t even know) and ends on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter). Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Here’s the link that I c/ped from 😄

Although I’m not Catholic, I’m planning on participating in Lent this year by giving up something(s) (which I’ll talk about in my points)

Watching-

I don’t really watch movies or shows, but I do watch more YouTube than is good for me. 😄 (Top 5 Favorite Youtubers). So for Lent this year, I’m giving up on watching YouTube . . . except for one channel: Monica Church. She’s prepping for the Big Climb for Leukemia (climbing up the tallest skyscraper in Seattle), and all revenue from the channel will go towards Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I’m really interested in leukemia (I want to be an oncologist some day), so it’s a cause I’m standing behind.

Eating-

Well, I can’t really think of anything in particular that I’m eating. o.0 (BUT RIGHT NOW I’M EATING SUPER GOOD MAC AND CHEESE SO THERES THAT)

But anyways, for Lent, I’m giving up eating sugar. (as in, pure, refined sugar, not like fruit sugar). This one’s probably going to be hard, and I’m going to be eating a lot of fruit 😄

Saying-

Saying. . . .that I’m going to die soon. 😄 No, but seriously, there’s SO. MANY. THINGS. coming up and like, *flailing*

million things i havne't done.gif

lowkey like that gif way too much

Wearing-

Summer AND winter clothes! Seriously, how is it 45 degrees one day and 70 the next?

Posting-

Lots of blogposts and lots of Instagram posts! I’ve been a bit more consistent posting Instagram posts, so I’m actually pretty excited about that!

For Lent, I’m giving up on following everyone on my personal Instagram that I don’t know personally. After Lent, I’ll decide on whether I’ll follow them back (don’t worry, y’all, you guys are on my blog Insta, so you aren’t affected :P)

What are you up to Currently? Are you giving up things for Lent? What are you giving up for Lent? How are you planning on growing in Jesus in March?


P.S. I’m also doing the March Bible reading plan from Little Faith Blog–feel free to join along with me!

  1. Oh my gosh I am SO excited you watch Monica Church!!!!!! I LOVE her MLC vlogs so much but I’ve never met anyone else who’s heard of her. I can’t wait for her March vlogs! (By which I mean, I can’t wait to sit on my couch and watch her die…lol)

    1. HAHAHA!! Yes, Monica is so awesome! LOL yea judging from these two vlogs so far….

      But I’m thinking of joining along with her and just running stairs! Because I’m terrible at cardio (like her), I might just do, like, 20 flights of stairs a day as she trains or something, I’m not sure yet.

  2. We’re having that weather back and forth too (though nothing as warm as 70…I wish!). It really is hard to figure out what to wear, isn’t it? Thanks for linking up!

    1. Well we’re down south (kinda) so it should be warmer . . . but yeah, the clothes struggle is so real. I haven’t gotten out my summer clothes yet, but might need to before I melt. 😛

      Thanks for hosting!!

  3. I like this idea of giving up things just for a short amount of time! Good on you! Yes, the no sugar thing can be hard. I’ve done it a few times though, so I can reassure you: it is very doable, and you’ll feel better for it! 🙂

    Also, that reading plan and photo challenge looks really good! I’ll have to check it out. 🙂

  4. That’s cool you’re using lent to try some things out, even if you aren’t Catholic. I’m not eating a lot of sugar right now because I’m on a diet plan through my hospital. It’s tough, but you do get used to it after awhile. Fruit is great, but I suggest looking up what has the most sugar, etc. and aren’t as good for you! I hear bananas and grapes aren’t the best.

    1. Hmm…seeing what I’ve done these past three days, cutting sugar is pretty hard 😛 I’m not really cutting sugar for the health side, it’s just so I can prepare myself mentally for Easter.

  5. Alright– I adore the weather changing gif. I’m going to have to tuck that away in my mind for future blog posts. 😄
    I applaud you for giving up sugar for lent! Do you think you’ll do other kinds of natural sugars, like honey and stuff like that?

    1. heee ikr? Google Images is the best 😛

      It’s hard! (also the fact that I went on a youth retreat where everyone survived on sugar and caffiene two days after Lent started -_-) I’m not giving up natural sugars, if that’s what you mean. I’m still having maple syrup (mainly) and fruit sugar.
