Weighing in....

If you check out scroll through recent headlines and take a look at this article:

What do you think? How does it portray the diabetes community? Does it talk about the advances if diabetes technology? Advances in research? No, it talks about diabulimia. Here's some advice CNN: 1. Do a series of articles- like what is Type 1?, how is it managed?, what are the complications?, and then maybe information on complications and other social issues involved.

Maybe I'll have a different opinion in the morning....What do YOU think?

Introducing "Silly Sightings in the City"

Now that I'm officially a commuter, I've seen some pretty crazy things on my trek into DC in the mornings and on my way home to the NoVA 'burbs in the afternoon. I've decided to incorporate all the crazy stuff and my general thoughts about the city into this blog once a week and will call it "Silly Sightings in the City."

I hope you enjoy.

Silly Sightings Week #1 and Week #2
1. Many men in blue seersucker suits. Seersucker strikes me as funny, I'm not sure why. I guess I expect to see a frat boy in it, and not middle aged men.
2. A man with a "Special K" tattoo, like the cereal logo, holding onto the same pole as me on the train. It made me hungry.
3. A little boy staring at my pump tubing sticking out from my shirt and probably thinking I was going to blow up or something. When I smiled at him, he scowled at me and looked at his mom. I imagine he was relieved when I got off the train without combusting.
4. A woman who looked like Bert from Sesame Street. She had the biggest and most bushy uni-brow that I have ever seen in my entire 22 years.

I'm back, I think

Hi all,

Holy moley! I haven't posted since February and it's....JUNE! What the heck! I've been a busy girl---I finished my thesis, ran my organization's Gala and Finale event, got engaged, got a job, and moved! I'm now a DC commuter and loving the city.

Here's to more frequent posts and getting back to blogging!
