Yom Kippur reflection

I fasted this year for Yom Kippur. And for the first time, I also followed the prohibition against drinking anything, even water.

I feel conflicted about the whole thing. 

I didn't go to services, nor spend much of the day in contemplative silence. I'm not particularly pious. I wish I hadn't been so busy with classes, community council, swim team, etc from 8:30a-7:30p but this did make the Fast go by surprisingly quickly. But now I feel like I missed out on a good opportunity...
