Second day: Nothing big to report

I may be using this blog thing incorrectly, but I think daily writing will help me a lot.

I am sick today.Ugh, nausea/fever/ickiness. Got it from the old lady upstairs above my apartment. Actually had to come home early from work because of it.

A very short temptation for a minute after I came home from work, but was easily conquered with eating saltine crackers. I think I was just hungry.

I've put internet filters (Firefox and Google Chrome both offer free add-ons/extensions for filtering pornography btw) on my computer. Firefox even has a cool thing that lets you set limits on how much time you spend on specific websites, or blocks them entirely during set times of the day. So, I set it to my favorite websites (not this one or other addiction recovery sites) so I can't spend too much time playing around on the internet at all. It's called LeechBlock. I love it!

I hope this will help someone else who needs to filter these things but is as poor as I am and needs free stuff.


Keep up the good work

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
