The worst: Giving up TV while I fall asleep
The most dreaded: Alcohol

The most enlightening: Going to church on Sundays
Biggest fail: Running 2 miles every morning
Biggest success: Giving up Facebook (only because my roommate changed the password on day 1 and gave it back on Easter Sunday) followed by giving up coffee
The one I'll definitely do next year: Secular music (even though 104.7 The Fish is a pretty terrible radio station when it's all you can listen to)
The one I'll never ever give up again: TWIRLING MY HAIR.
Crowd favorite: Close parking spaces

See ya next year, adventure!
