Week Two in the Faction Challenge (inspired by Veronica Roth’s debut novel DIVERGENT) has finally ended. How did I do during Amity Week?

Well, I ATE apples. So there’s that. Oh, and I sang! Katy Perry’s E.T., and One Potato Two Potato Three Potato Four. Which should really earn me extra points because it’s a song about farm-y stuff.

That’s one big ass potato

But by the end of the week, I pretty much wanted so say:  SUCK IT AMITY. I mean, I tried to be more understanding of others, especially the kids. I think I had some success. But there were moments when being understanding was QUITE a challenge. Like when the kids refused to stop yelling in the doctor’s office while the doctor was trying to speak. Yeah, Amity pretty much bailed on me there.

My 3-yr-old struggled with Amity this week as well.  Example?  How about the time she walked down the stairs, eyed her older brother’s elaborate Lincoln Log creation, and then kicked it over for no apparent reason…and she did it with a song in her heart.

My money's on the 3-yr-old

I’m pegging her for a Dauntless.

Also, I was hyper-aware of my non-Amity-like thoughts this week, even when I didn’t act on them. I’m still trying to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Overall, I guess I’d say that while Amity wasn’t an unqualified fail like Abnegation, it also wasn’t as simple an undertaking as I’d hoped.

But enough about me—how did everyone else do? Check the (continuously updated) links below and find out!

    Dude, we have to be faction-like all week? And here I thought I was overachieving by aiming for one act!

    Also hyper-aware of non-amity thoughts. Does suppressing them count as Amity?
    This week was also hard. Who knew? Thanks for doing this! I finally ordered Divergent and I’m hoping it comes in today. Hooray!

    I have a feeling this was probably going to be the easiest week for me as far as participating in the faction challenges. But I do have at least one idea for Dauntless! Anyway, here is my Amity week:

    Amity is overated. Bring on Dauntless! Okay, not really. I’ll have to jump off the roof or something, and I’m not really looking forward to that.

    “and she did it with a song in her heart.” HAHAHAHAHA I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—I dig that girl!

    I think you made up for un-Amity thoughts with SONG! How much more fun is that?

    Better late than never, although a late failure might not really count as better than nothing. I was SO looking forward to this one, and yet…it kicked my butt. Do over?
