**What I’m giving up**: sweets. This includes cookies, candies, cakes, and pies. The only sugar I’m allowing myself is the sugar in my coffee — and any sugar that might be in a cough drop, should I need one.
**What I’m adding**: an hour a week for non-scholastic professional development — this is time to be focused on working through tutorials on various kinds of media production — and one hour a week for reviews (*a la* GTD).[^1]
[^1]: I recognize that additions are not part of the Lenten tradition, at least as I grew up, but since I see Lent as partly about reflecting on one’s own habits (of mind, of practice, of views), I thought it might be a good time also to develop a few desirable habits.
