Yom Kippur starts tonight. It's a holiday where you reflect on the past year, and think about what you can do better. Also, usually you're supposed to fast from sunset tonight until sunset tomorrow. I can't because I'm on meds, so there are exceptions to the rule. I used to really get into it though. I want to do it. :( They say though that you shouldn't compromise your health by doing so. If you do, it's almost a sin. We get a huge potluck afterwards, so I guess that's nice. Mom's going to make smoked salmon alfredo. Sounds so good. :3 Also, this is one of the most important holidays in Judaism. So, it's a big deal. People usually can get out of classes and work for it.
I finished the 2nd chapter of my story. It was really fun to do! Hope the 3rd is just as fun! I joined a new forum too. They are incredibly nice there! I've already made like 10 friends!
