One thing I remember from my youth about the last few days of lent is my grandmother fasting. Unfortunately, I don't remember which days she used to fast for lent. I think it was Thursday or Friday because Jesus was "dead" and therefore you fast. Either way, I'm considering doing this this year. I've never fasted before and I get the feeling it's not an entirely pleasant experience. However, I feel the need for a change in my life and culminating my lent experience by steeping it in tradition sounds like the first step. Either way I'll have to look into this a bit more. I can't remember whether this is a three day thing or not. Like...Thursday through Saturday. With a paper to write and people coming over this weekend on top of school, this may not happen. If it does, I will surely log it into the blog.
