My best friend and I are beginning a fast. They chose social media, and I chose online shopping. Dealnews.com is my achilles heel. I spend so much time shopping online for things I don’t need. The first reason is the thrill and fulfillment of finding good deals. The second is the simple pleasure of buying and owning material things. While this sacrifice seems minor, my hope is by giving up this small portion of my life, I’m able to use my residual time to glorify God in all that I do.
I’m also giving up social media as well. For me, that isn’t Facebook, instagram, and snap chat. It’s mostly Yahoo, Youtube, ESPN, and Cnet. I will commit myself to studying hard for my next pharmacology exam, and not to wasting time keeping up with mindless bauble.
